The Nerds are again joined by May and Kay to drilldown on the second Star Wars prequel movie, Attack of the Clones.  We discuss our first time watching the movie, we scrounge deep down into our souls to discuss the things we liked about the movie and then we discuss things we had issues with, which may not be some of the things you're expecting.  

Come check it out, along with our insightful commentary you'll hear lots of audio issues, several of us have problems remembering words and CT confesses his hatred for 50s diners.  All in this week's action packed episode!

Michael DiGiovanni from The Atomic Geeks and Classic Film Jerks returns for a second look at Film and TV tropes. We did this before on episode 142 and there are so many, we have to do it again. How tropey. Sewers, murder-solvers, funerals, and insane people are among the topics discussed. Nerd To-Dos feature Supernatural, Person of Interest and an update on Lorenzo Lamas.

This episode also marks the fourth anniversary since the debut of the Nerd Lunch Podcast.
