#53 “Full Frontal Alien”

SURPRISE! Nerd Novice is now Nerd Novice 2.0, complete with a video version of our podcast on our new YouTube channel! In this episode Jim and Megan discuss The X-Files movie (1998), Scully's face, and what sorts of new and interesting shows are on the TVs these days. Also some highly humorous things that you don't want to miss, including what we would do with a million dollars.

Next time on Nerd Novice: The X-Files S07E22 “Requiem”, S08E01 “Within”, plus the series finale: “The Truth” parts I and II.

#47 “There Can Be Only One... Good Season”

Jim and Megan spend a little bit of time in this episode wrapping up Highlander, the TV series. They spend a lot of time, though, talking about another topic: Misogyny and gender inequality, especially as it relates to the “nerd culture”.

Here's the article we were referring to: http://thebea.st/1gxJzX0

Next time on Nerd Novice: Kicking off our “Detectives” theme with “Murder, She Wrote”

#39 “Suffixifying”

Jim and Megan are back from their unintended hiatus with another episode about Harry Potter movies, this time specifically movies 3 and 4. What's different about these movies from 1 and 2? It can be summarized in two words: Hermione's Hair. 

Next week on Nerd Novice: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix / Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (and maybe a little Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in there too)


Today your podcasting nerds Jim and Megan discuss how everyone wishes they could live at Hogwarts. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets are both covered. We pretty much decided that if there was no magical aspect to the HP series, the Chamber of Secrets would just be an ordinary plumbing access panel behind a sink in a high school bathroom.

Next week on Nerd Novice: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban / Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
