May 2nd, 2013 by Mad Dave Comments

On this week’s show your host, Marc, is joined by the man we call Saxon, Mr Stephen McCulla and
we get into the nitty gritty of the world of Nerd.

First up we talk about Iron Man 3 – don’t worry, we keep it spoiler free – and just what we thought
of it.

From there we talk about the latest toys from Marvel Select and just why Character Options has lost
the plot when it comes to Doctor Who toys.

Next we rejoice in the fact that we were mentioned in an online article in the Wall Street Journal
before talking about last week’s episode of Doctor Who called Hide… spooky.

With the release of the third Man of Steel trailer we rejoice in the music of Hans Zimmer and talk
about why we think it’s a good thing that John Williams is left behind for Zack Snyder’s new take on
the Superman mythology.

Loki’s ultimate fate is discussed as we speculate, given what we see in the Thor: The Dark World
trailer and know of the comic history, ON what we think will ultimately be his fate in the Marvel

Stuart is back from The Monday Movie Show with the UK Box Office Top Ten and we talk in length
about Oblivion and Joseph Kosinski’s previous sci-fi epic TRON: Legacy and Marc ponders on why he
thinks Kosinski should be a shoe-in for one of the upcoming Star Wars sequels.

Is Ghostbusters III still coming? We ponder the chances of it happening and wonder who would be a
great choice of cast if the movie was – shudder – remade. What do you think of our choices?

Finally, two of the biggest questions in sci-fi get addressed… why are Australian Trekkies up-in-arms
about JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness and will we really find out the name of the Doctor in two
weeks? Or is Steven Moffat up to his old tricks?

I'm Mad Dave one of the team's growing collection of tabletop gaming nerds. I was raised on a healthy diet of TV like Blake 7, Doctor Who and Star Trek with a side of sword and sorcery / sc-fi movies and a large dollop of board games like Cluedo, RISK and Hero Quest. You know your a gaming nerd if: You bring toy soldiers to work? You bring toy soldiers to work and you work has nothing to do with toy soldiers? Most of you jackets / coats have dice in one of the pockets? You hate throwing away packaging because you know it's actually a ruined building or field generator? You have a collection of old packaging? You can find something relevant to your hobby i.e. books, magazines, figures etc in almost every room in your house? I no I'm a nerd because I've done all of the above, how many of these made you smile and nod yes to?
