Santa Clarita Diet Review and our reaction to Lego Batman
This Nerd Nuptial has a lot of time on its hand's thanks to Tristan being on paternity leave. After seeing Logan The Girl and Tristan got the itch to see another film and decided to go see The Lego Batman. After that, they decided to start Santa Clarita Diet.
Starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as a realtor power couple who have an unexpected circumstance of her becoming undead. They try to balance life, kids, PTA, and eating people. It’s part absurd, part satire, and a whole lot of fun in parts. We discuss what worked and what didn’t.
Tristan starts the show with a prudish rant of what TV has become.
Was Logan a misstep or is it proof that we don't need anymore X-Men films?
Logan was heralded as smaller and more intimate while at the same time amping up the violence. We have gotten a lot of X-Men films over the past 17 years and Hugh Jackman has been in almost every single one. He originated this character on film and he is saying that Logan is his last. we've heard this kind of talk before but hopefully, it's true this time.
What did you guys think of Logan? Do we need anymore X-Men films?
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?
