On this week’s Hard NOC Life, Dominic gets Keith through his very own “flu game” to score all the points on the week in Nerd Pop.
First, they marvel at the amazing casting announcements for Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman, including Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, Paul Dano as The Riddler, and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman. This leads into an extended conversation about what to expect in Reeves’ take on the Dark Knight and whether we should reevaluate some of the campier takes on the mythos — such as Batman & Robin and Halle Berry’s Catwoman. Then, the two hosts break down Netflix’s Breaking Bad movie El Camino by remembering what made the series one of the best in television history and how the movie serves as a proper send-off to characters as iconic as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. Finally, they share which classic TV series they’d like to see Netflix return to for a similar epilogue movie.
What’s #NerdPoppin this week (57:00): Dominic is eagerly anticipating the Rise of Skywalker trailer and is ready to purchase advanced tickets, while Keith is excited that the entire Studio Ghibli canon is coming to HBO Max.
