Out of the Frying Pan and into Hell – Hell’s Ktichen Season 6

I wasn’t expecting to get a summer serving of Hell’s Kitchen, but Fox put it on the buffet of warm weather TV. We almost missed the season premier episode. We aren’t watching a lot of other Fox shows, and DVR the ones we do. I just happened to catch a commercial during a fast forward. […]

“Cake Boss” – Duff meets Tony Soprano

Over Fourth of July weekend, Mrs. Nerd and I were doing a little channel surfing and came across the TLC show Cake Boss. Now we both enjoy Ace of Cakes and the various Food Network challenges involving cake. We’d seen the Cake Boss star, Buddy Valastro, on at least one challenge, but couldn’t remember the […]

Nerd of the Year

I really have to appreciate the way Mrs. Nerd puts up with me. I’m quirky, collect toys, read comics, etc… And for the most part she doesn’t complain about it. And for that, I’ve been truly blessed for the last nine years. She knew what she was getting into, since my screen name has been […]

Baroness – GI Joe: Rise of Cobra

Normally, collectibles on this site are based on films and TV shows. This summer we are getting a big screen version of GI Joe. The film version is based on the Real American Hero (RAH) animated series from the early eighties. That series was based on Hasbro’s line of action figures. And you know there […]

Warehouse 13 – A Steampunk Fringe?

SciFi Channel shows have been hit or miss for me. Some of them I really love, and some of them I just don’t get. I’ve never really got into the new Battlestar Galactica or Startgate. I was apparently one of the few people who liked Painkiller Jane and Dresden Files. I still think Dresden Files […]

In order to raise money for chartering the Millenium Falcon, Luke Skywalker was forced to sell his landspeeder at a used speed dealer in Mos Eisley. The speeder dealer was a large bug headed creature that we only glimpse from a distance. Other than the huge melon, I couldn’t tell you much about the dealer. […]

Muppet Comic “Muparitaville”

The Muppets have had a number of musical guest stars over the years. Sometimes they would do variations on their songs when they came on the show. Jimmy Buffett did a song on Kermit Unplugged titled “Mr. Spaceman”.  So, it seemed a natual to Muppetize Margaritaville in a comic strip.

WOS Comic “Average Schmoe”

Mrs. Nerd and I are a bit of reality TV junkies. Although, we’ve slowed down a bit. At the time these comics were created, the Bachelor and Average Joe were hot and the Spike show “Joe Schmoe” was a reality show parodying reality shows. Discussing this over dinner, we came up with the idea for […]

Muppet Comic “James Pond – Nosefinger”

Tuxedos always remind me of James Bond. That being said, it was a short leap to go from Kermit in a tux to James Pond.  Goldfinger is probably my favorite of all the Bond films. In it, the laser scene is one of the most memorable. This is my Muppet homage to that scene.

Muppet Comic “Hamalot”

If you think about it, the Muppets and Monty Python aren’t all that different. Both of their TV programs were basically skit shows. The skits ranged from musical to topical. The only real difference in the formulas of the shows was the age of the target audience. Although, the Muppet show has a lot of […]
