Television has helped shape our society for over 60 years. This week, we talk about what is arguably the first national television network, and it’s not NBC. Join us as we discuss the influence and the lost legacy of the forgotten network.
Hello there dear listeners and readers! My name is Kevin Sutorius, one of the guest hosts of our Nerds on Film podcast.
When it comes to my favorites of 2012, I could talk all day about all the movies in the top twenty, but I will try to keep it them brief. They are mostly based on personal preference (obviously), but I also added in some consideration from the critics as well, so hopefully, this list can provide some great or entertaining choices for you to see in theaters or at home. You may notice some glaring omissions in this list and that is because either a) they didn’t personally resonate with me or b) I didn’t get to see them. With my brief explanations, I will do my best not to spoil the story for each film, since there may be some of you out there that still haven’t seen them.
On our January 11th blog post, I posed a challenge to our readers and listeners to see 18 of the Oscar nominated films (check out the post to see the details and prizes!).
It seems this year, the Challenge has proven to be rather daunting. I myself have a mere 7 films to go prior to the big day. I was ahead of my pace, and then I skipped a week. So now I need to see 3 films this week to catch up. Thankfully, I will have plenty of time to sit and relax and watch movies because as you are reading this, I am having my wisdom teeth extracted.
Finally, Eric and Bryan conclude (for now) their discussion on Rome, with an emphasis on the Emperors from Augustus through the Byzantines. Featuring Special Guest Dan Lazarus, a.k.a. The Lazarus Man. Enjoy!
This week, The Nerds discuss films that claim to be “Based on True Events” and how true they really are. Then, we get to listener feedback including reading aloud our fans’ prizes from participating in social media contests.
