Pax and Jeeg are joined by Carlin from the Pod James Pod Podcast and Jay from Sexy Armpit for a nerdy discussion I like to call Poor Man's Podcast.  We all discuss the phrase 'X is a poor man's Y' where we fill in X and Y with our own ideas.  We also take turns assigning another member of the podcast part of the poor man's equation.  It's a lot of fun plus you have to listen to Jay's special Nerd Lunch intro.

This week we welcome Pax's buddy Dr. Mike back to the fourth chair for another Star Trek movie drilldown. Somehow our serious analysis of Star Trek: The Motion Picture devolves to include Billy Zane, Chris Pine's arm hair, giant sphincters, and talking like we're in a wormhole. Just the sort of high critique you can only get from Nerd Lunch and the rest of the Internet. Our Nerd To Dos feature a book about the BMX movie Rad, the Shannara fantasy novels by Terry Brooks, more of Jeeg's real life problems, and a Netflix cleanup project.

The Fourth Chair is crowded this week as returning guest Dubba from episode 96 brings with him three of his friends. The ENTIRE crew from The Nosh Show joins us and we do a Fast Food Draft. The rules were simple, we each had to pick a burger/beef entree, chicken entree, side item, drink (something you can suck through a straw) and a wild card item from the QSR top 20 list of fast food and quick service restaurants. There was drama and intrigue and by the end we were all very hungry.

You can also hear the entire crew of Nerd Lunch on episode 32 of The Nosh Show.

The ringleader of the Strange Kids Club, Rondal Scott, joins us once again in the 4th Chair this week. With Rondal on board we return to the topic in Episode 87 and create more Ultimate Triple Features. We solve plenty of cinematic quandaries while assembling trilogies around given themes, but perhaps no one greater than what does one pair with Howard the Duck. This week's Nerd To Dos feature sword and sorcery novels, the Beastmaster and Barbarella, 24, and Godzilla.

CT returns this week along with frequent Fourth Chair Soldier Robert Zerbe from To the Escape Hatch. In their first ever "Nerd Lunch Theater," the crew puts on a show as CT takes on the persona of Ned N. Lurch, the idiot stepson of a famous movie studio executive. Ned has managed to convince ol' stepdad to give him a shot at producing a big budget movie. In an effort to make sure this project fails, Ned is set up with three consultants who have been instructed to feed ideas into the project that will turn this into the "worst movie ever." Nerd To-Dos this week includes a whole bunch of stuff, but most importantly a rather lengthy sidebar about Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
