Kane and Rett break their hiatus with a quick little conversation on Mothers Day. They recap the new episodes of Game of Thrones, eagerly awaiting the broadcast of the third episode. Then they talk about the trailer for Star Wars Rogue One.
This week Kane tells a story that makes him out to be a jerk. Then Rett shares his thoughts on the latest season of Game of Thrones, and they discuss the divergence of show from the books. There will be book spoilers for anyone who cares, and if you do then you suck, you’ve had 20 years to climb on board this train.
Then Rett doesn’t know anything about drugs, and Kane was once a 15 year old boy.
We return from our short hiatus to find the guys joined by a very special guest, Lee Parra. Lee enlightens our hosts with his dazzling understanding of science and unique insights into Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Also Kane and Rett shed some light on their exploits as a band back when they were touring as The Monster Addict, and regale Lee with a funny story about a time they slept with their shoes on!
Its Duel of Taints! Episode 7!
You heard it first at Awesome! Internet Radio
We apologize to the great many inconvenienced by our late posting of this weeks episode of NDBrothers.
In this weeks edition the brothnerds discuss the epic Civilizations 5, Magic the Gathering, adventuring in the public matchmaking world of DOTA2, and the positive affects of video games.
Jason and Rett were unable to get together in person this week, so they used to skype to record. You can taste how easily distracted they can get… plus it was so late. they were absolutely tired after a long day of work AND school.
In this weeks episode of NDBrothers the two brothnerds talk about Jason’s thoughts on season 1 of Arrow and all the fun things to happen on the latest episode of Game of Thrones, as well as the new rendition of Godzilla and the many video game appearances of Godzilla.
And Rett tells Jason how much he hates stupid battle scenes in movies that really don’t need stupid battle scenes. Doesn’t everyone hate stupid battle scenes?
We have finally brought you a show other than that one you hate… what’s it called… Duel of Taints or something? Yeah this is not that one.
This is one you hopefully like more than that one. NDBrothers is two brothers, stuffing their mouths with their lunch, while talking the latest nerd news. TV, books, movies, video games, comics, even music cannot escape their scrutiny. They’re full of opinions and usually wrong. But that doesn’t stop Jason or Rett from being passionate about what they love.
This show is made by regular guys who just want to share some regular talk.
The second episode of Duel of Taints, in which Kane and Rett take a trip to Westeros and talk about the purple wedding, the prince who was promised, and the dragon with three heads.
This episode was originally recorded as a bonus to the first. But with an hour of content we thought it could stand on its own. There isn’t much of a duel this time around. But we talk in depth about the Game of Thrones, and whatever else floats our fancy.
I’m usually not much of a stickler for spoilers, but there have been a few of you who have emailed in and requested to have a list of spoilers at the very least. And since you all did it so nicely, here is cheat sheet. Albeit not as tight as I could be.
For the most part there is a lot of speculation in this episode 1) up until about 11:00 is spoiler free if you have watched all available GoT episodes.
2)11:15-11:30 contains knowledge that might upset some people. Personally I don’t consider it a spoiler. But I suppose some of you do. However after 11:30 We go into detail of Sansa’s exodus from Kings Landing as described in the book. Again if you are caught up, it’s not a problem. S04 E05 should be sufficient.
3) 13:30 – 13:45 contains the same bit of above spoiler info. Again, I don’t consider it spoiler. But I’m playing nice.
4) After 13:45 it goes back to being spoiler free as long as you are caught up. We discuss the trial at length.
5) 15:50 – 17:15 (if you want to be safe) Spoilers, I guess… we discuss scenes that will happen by the end of season 4.
6) 18:15-19:45 we discuss the competitors of Tyrion’s upcoming trial by combat and the motivations of said competitors. I don’t consider this spoilers either. But I suppose if you like surprises…
From here we go into some serious speculation on the prophecies presented in the stories and talk at some length of events that back these speculations.
7) 29:25 SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS. This is spoilers. It’s in the interest of speculation. But we discuss the last page, of the latest book. Fast forward to 30:45 to avoid spoiling the shit out of yourself.
You have now safely avoided all Game of Thrones related spoilers.
Now enjoy the rest of the episode as we explore just how far one tangent can go.
Bonus points to whoever can tell us with certainty the average life expectancy of a Gungan.
And that’s all we have for now!
Tune in next week where we’ll discuss Batman in the Nolanverse.
