Recently, we had guest Jon Cross from the After Movie Diner on our show and the previous guest, Jeremy from Geek Chunks asked a particularly volatile Fourth Chair Carryover Question. This question turned into a 20 minute discussion about Star Trek, reboots, opinionated fans, "hate," and poutine. (Actually, poutine never came up surprisingly...) We decided to cut that discussion out of the show in an effort to get to the main topic discussion quicker, but it was entertaining enough that you might enjoy listening as a second helping.

Warning, there are spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Flight of the Navigator in this. (Actually, Flight of the Navigator never came up...)

This week on the show, CT and Pax welcome back Shawn Robare of Branded in the 80s and Cult Film Club and new guest Howie Decker of Under Scoop Fire to discuss the G.I. Joe action figure line. We chatted about the figures we collected, the ones we never got, and what inspired the way we played with our toys. Nerd To-Dos this week featured Man of Steel, animation cels, and Retro Con.

This week on the podcast, we celebrate a 75th birthday and the release of Man of Steel with a discussion about this long-enduring granddaddy of all super hero characters, Superman. CT and Pax are joined by Michael May and Thom Holbrook for a look back at what the character means to all of us from all media. We talk comics, radio, television, movies, and even get a chance to finally play "Superman: Dead or Alive." Nerd To-Dos this week feature talk about Downton Abbey, Creepshow, Battlestar Galactica, and Burn Notice.

Also, if you want to win a print of the above piece of Superman art by Des Taylor, sign up for our Nerd Lunch Newsletter by July 1, 2013 and get entered for a chance to win it. Easy peasy.

This week on the show, the Nerd Lunch crew are joined by Fourth Chair guest, Claymation Werewolf where they take a trip down memorylane and relive the glory days of Saturday mornings. No obligations, cartoon lineups on three major networks, and hours upon hours wasted watching cel-painted goodness (and badness). From earliest memories, to favorite shows, to things that might have been canceled too soon, a lot of great shows were covered. Nerd To-Dos include more home improvement reports, animation projects, and summer TV plans.

This week we finally take another crack at the Listbuster topic first heard back in Episode 17. In our crosshairs is IGN's list of the Top 25 Action Movies and riding shotgun in the fourth chair is Jon Cross from the After Movie Diner and Dr. Action and The Kick Ass Kid podcast. After a healthy discussion about just what an action movie is, we tear IGN's list to shreds and then reveal our top 10 action movie lists. In our Nerd To-Dos we get the lowdown on the Superman III novelization, a goal to chat with Steve Guttenberg, and a mini review of The Hobbit (hint: it's a long movie).
