Two fan boys and two long time friends talking about everything that's nerdtastic!

#227 – That Was The Year That Was, 2017 Style!

Welcome one and all to a very special, year-end review episode of When Nerds Collide, with your nerdtastic hosts, Dan and Tom! Dan opens the show with talk of his time off of work, aka “The Dirty Days”!He continues on about the new candle he lit in the podcast cave in order to overcome the odor of the official dog of WNC, Harvey!


The guys have a brief discussion of Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi and how neither of them cared for it. They will be doing a full episode about that film later this year, once the spoiler zone has passed. This episode’s discussion of The Last Jedi takes up a large portion of the show, but this is NOT a Last Jedi episode!
The guys talk about some random crap, including Infinity War, Black Panther, and Christmas loot! Tom got some Legends and Dan got some D&D books!

There’s some discussion of Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch, a callback to Rogue One and the story of Tom’s intro to AD&D!
Dan takes us back through the most and least successful films of 2017!
Tom jumps into the main topic, the folks who passed away during 2017. A huge list, including professional wrestlers, actors, singers, and comedians. One huge loss in the comic industry was Len Wein, creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing, who passed away on Sept 10 at the age of 69.
In closing, Dan expresses his uneasiness with the way that they sold cigarettes during the Abbott and Costello show!
The guys want to wish everyone a Happy 2018! Thanks for listening!
Please leave a rate and review on ITunes as the last thing you do this year! Or the first thing you do next year! Just do it!

Thanks to Kirby Krackle for the use of the tunes!

Nerd to your mother!
