Doctor Strange, Arrival Review, and an ending to our baby story
Nerd Nuptial is back and we have an hour long episode this week where we discuss the home video releases of Marvel's Doctor Strange and Paramount's Arrival.
Watching these two movies came after trying to arrive at a new normal with the birth of Ripley. We open the show with an ending to our baby story and how we are adjusting to being new nerd parents.
What makes a show "Binge-worthy"
The Girl is super pregnant and was just put on bed rest. Now she is trying to find things to binge so she doesn't get bored. This week we ask ourselves what are some great shows to binge watch. Some are good to watch week to week and some a great to try to achieve in one sitting. What aspects of the show contribute to this? Is it the story arc or the episodic ones?
What are some shows you recommend for The Girl to watch during her bed rest?
The Young Pope Review - Mixed w/ House of Cards and Logan
After a failed maternity photo session and Tristan unjustly getting irritated with a retail worker, this Nerd Nuptial team decided to catch up on trailers and also The Young Pope. Jude Law plays a 40-something pope who's in league with Diane Keaton at the Vatican. Who is this young pope? Is he conservative? Is he liberal? What's his game? The Girl thought it was slow and Tristan found it deliberate. Listen to find out if they'll continue with this pontiff's power struggle.
They also discuss the House of Cards announcement trailer, Logan's second trailer, and how Tristan didn't pack the camera bag!
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix Review
While balancing baby plans, work, baby showers, and all while still trying to binge watch, Tristan and The Girl were able to watch Lemony Snicket on Netflix this week. You might remember the books, you might remember the movie that came out in 2004 with Jim Carrey. This is a whole new ball game when it comes to episodic streaming and the people behind the scenes don't let you forget it. In this eight-episode series, the Baudelaire children lose their parents and get shipped off from guardian to guardian while trying to avoid the evil Count Olaf. Is it's inherent repetitive nature too much to handle? Is it a kids show or is it for adults? We discuss this and a whole lot more so listen and find out.
What did you guys think of the show?
