nevpodcast: By Andrew Linde I like sitcoms. I’ll admit it. They’re usually quite funny and often become wonderful returning shows year after year(ignoring those that go on too long). From Seinfeld to the Honeymooners, sitcoms have been a staple on TV in new content and reruns. Yet sometimes, they don’t quite deliver. Take the case of Up All Night. Read More

nevpodcast: By Thomas Willett “Go ahead, laugh. Thank you. I appreciate it. But the fact is, I’m here. Now, tomorrow you’ll know I wasn’t kidding… and you’ll think I was crazy.

The Greatest Escape
nevpodcast: By Matthew Esposito BREAKING NEWS: Matt Damon, Liam Neeson and Jason Statham are set to star in a re-make of the action and adventure classic The Great Escape. No, that is not true at all. I apologize if I got your hopes up because a re-make with those three would be epic.

Alphas, Beta, Delta
nevpodcast: by Andrew Linde With so much emphasis on the new fall TV season, many people forget about summer television. Although it is a fairly recent trend to air new scripted shows in the summer, it’s gaining ground with better fare. My personal favorite this summer has been Alphas. Read More

Apples to Oranges
nevpodcast: by Matthew Esposito Apple bugs me. No, not apples with bugs in them, but Apple computers; although bug infested apples might be just as unsettling. Regardless, I have never been a fan of the computer manufacturer. Sure, when I was a child I wanted a Mac to print out unmarked checks and subsequently rub up next to Karen Duffy like Preston Waters in Blank Check, but then again, what...
Nerd's Eye View Podcast: To Cat-ch An Actress →
nevpodcast: by Andrew Linde I came to an odd conclusion last week. I was sitting in the movie theatre at the Long Beach Towne Centre, watching Colombiana with the Nerd’s Eye View crew and a thought crossed my mind. This thought had almost nothing to do with the movie I was watching. The thought was…

Nerd's Eye View Podcast: Last, But Not Least →
nevpodcast: by Thomas Willett This past Sunday, HBO said goodbye to the show Entourage after 8 seasons of Jeremy Piven and his gang of friends roaming around with women and egos. I couldn’t wait to see how this show would decide to end itself. This is not to say that I ever watched the show. I saw…

nevpodcast: by Andrew Linde The following blog concerns the most recent episode of Doctor Who(Season 6, Episode 9 “Night Terrors”). If you haven’t seen the episode and don’t wish to be spoiled upon the details, you should stop reading. My first Doctor was the Tenth Doctor, portrayed by David Tennant.

Eddie Murphy in: Oscar Heist!
nevpodcast: by Thomas Willett I don’t claim to be a comedian, but I’ve decided to just set up a premise for you. Did you hear, Eddie Murphy is hosting the 84th Annual Academy Awards? This should only sound appealing to two groups of people: the impressionistic children who liked Imagine That and the cryogenically frozen group that never lived a day past 1989. If you have pop culture in your...

Car Collection Catastrophe
nevpodcast: by Matthew Esposito Two Fridays ago, Andrew, yes that same pansy who will not watch 500 movies in one summer, posted a blog about the existence of his 200 plus DVD collection; I myself have about 350. Yes, I just bragged in a blog post about DVD collection size but that is neither here nor there. However, I have decided to piggyback off of his collection idea and blog about a...
Off the Top of My Head
nevpodcast: by Andrew Linde Films are generally well-plotted, and met with much preparation. A writer cranks out a script which is edited mercilessly, either to sharpen the humor or tighten up the dialogue. An actor memorizes those words and embodies a character which exists only in mind. A director shapes these characters and creates scenes with mood and theme. At least, in theory. Read More
