The Nerd Lunch crew return to their arrogant franchise topic of putting a polarizing director on trial. But since Jeeg and Pax were called away, CT shown the signal in the air and the Legion of Substitute Nerd Lunchers answered to fill in. Aaron Nix of Movie Hodge Podge and the Pod, James Pod Podcast takes on the challenging role of defending M. Night Shyamalan. Aaron faces off against his mortal enemy, CT, who brings the case against the the much maligned director. Together, they both call on the expert witness of Michael May (of Kill All Monsters and the Michael May Adventure Blog) and argue their cases in front of Judge Andrew Bloom (Classic Film Jerks). It's the most legal dramatastic episode of the Nerd Lunch Podcast yet! Nerd To-Dos include Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, TCM, and G.I. Joe Retaliation.

Night Shamalayan.

Strange Kids Club's very own Rondal Scott returns to the 4th Chair to help us give the franchise treatment to a topic we first did back in Episode 78.  Again we're choosing the real life people best suited or most likely to end up in fictional scenarios from movies, TV, and other media.  Listen to find out which real life news reporter we think is actually the Last Son of Krypton, which real life pro-wrestler moonlights as a monster fighter, which real life astronaut married a genie, and more.  In our Nerd To-Dos, we get a little Stephen King, some M. Night Shyamalan, a Cher movie, and a guest appearance to do some ice cream reviewing.
