This past week we closed the chapter on The Last of Us, with the final 9th episode and season one finale…and not a dry eye was seen for miles on end.
Where have the past nine weeks gone?!? They were easily both the fastest and slowest weeks of our lives (ew, winter), yet we somehow found a way to make it to Sunday each week, just to get our Joel and Ellie content on. That 50 minutes on Sunday nights got us through an entire work week…and a cold winter in the midwest.
We break down the season finale of The Last of Us, compare scenes from the game vs. this final episode, and elaborate on what we think is to come for Seasons Two (and three hopefully!!)
We’re still pretty early on in season three of The Mandalorian and it seems like this week they made a visit to the Andor writing room. Is there a Bo-Katan and Djin budding romance going on or are we imagining things? Either way, we’re not complaining.
We’re finally back…after being asleep the entire month of February!
We made it to Episode 60….and what an episode it is. We recap Episode 2 and 3 of our new favorite tv show – The Last of Us – and cry whilst doing so. This is your final warning: do not listen to this episode if you are not caught up on the epic tale of Joel and Ellie yet. We spoil literally everything in this episode, but make in fun even though everyone is dying and infected by a dumb fungus.
2023 is off to quite the start! This week we have a lot of nerd news and gossip that we just can’t contain ourselves over. We return to our roots and discuss our thoughts
The Relatable Nerds are back on their bullshit.
Join hosts Ilsa and Kyra in their discussions on Last of Us hype, upcoming Phase 5 Marvel shows and movies, and their ideas for the Blade movie…just re-release the original Blade Trilogy…
The nerds are stunned when they heard that Adam Driver is rumored to play Mr. Fantastic in the upcoming Fantastic 4 movie. What’s next? IS BERNIE SANDERS PRESIDENT?
Silly nerds, Bernie Sanders will always be our president.
The self-proclaimed Porg Champs also recap the latest episodes of The Bad Batch, 1-3!
Join us next week as we continue our Bad Batch Talk and recap the first episode of The Last of Us!!!!
Joel, Will you be my daddy, baby?
We’re fashionably late to 2023 per usual.
Who even counts the first week of the new year? The correct answer (if you’re us and live in a cold seasonal climate) is no one.
From Ezra Miller’s antics to the release of Dr. Strange, to the Don’t Worry Darling drama and Harry Styles’ acting skills, and our favorite shows of the year – Obi Wan Kenobi and Moon Knight – we had many highs and many lows. Underneath it all, we just continued to distract ourselves from the outside world by hyper focusing on our nerd news.
Thank you so much for your continued support throughout the past years. Its been a wild ride and 2022 truly showed us that we have such an amazing audience, that expands all around the world, that is hard to fathom sometimes.
Here’s to 2023. It’s time for the Relatable world takeover. You guys in?!
We can’t believe this is the final episode (for now) of us discussing Andor. How did the past 12 weeks fly by so quickly? It feels like we’ve been waiting for Andor for literal years and just like that….its over.
But worry not. Andor will be returning for a second season sometime in 2024 we predict! Apparently this will lead directly into Rogue One as well, so it will be absolutely intense and we’re not even remotely close to being ready to say goodbye to our Cassian.
We also review the Guardians Christmas special! Please give a warm welcome to Kevin Bacon (as himself) to the MCU. He killed it. This is a must watch, especially this holiday season.
There’s A LOT of trailers out this week as well. We review our favs and have some special nerd news updates.
Thanks for tuning in!
Sorry for our brief hiatus – it was Halloween week and we were celebrating our favorite holiday of the year. Some people do birthday months (we also partake) – we do Halloween all year round, but the month of October is the busiest of our lives….and the week Halloween hits – forget it!
We have the ultimate Star Wars nerd news roundup this week, with a final cast announcement for the upcoming show, “The Acolyte,” which takes place 200 years before The Phantom Menace and during the fall of the High Republic. If this means nothing to you yet – we got you covered and explain what could potentially go down in this incredible series!
This week’s Andor episode was suspenseful and heartbreaking. What a privilege it is to finally watch women lead the rebellion in such vast and different ways. The levels to this show are so powerful and we could honestly go on and on about how inspiring it is to see women of color fight the fight we have all been fighting our entire lives. Kudos to you Star Wars – consider us even more in debt to you.
On This Week’s Episode of Relatable Nerds,
Ilsa and Kyra get to discuss three different nerd shows!
The penultimate episode of She-Hulk took both of our nerds on an exciting journey, finally getting to see the hottie that has been teased since before the show even premiered!
After that, it’s off to Aldhani to hang out with our old pal, Cassian AKA Clem! He’s still chilling with Chef Richie from The Bear. COUSINNNNNN!!!!!!
Meanwhile, our favorite Senator Mon Motha is experiencing some friction with her family.
As always, we love to our episode with some HOT D!
House of the Dragon that is, and this episode was full of twists and turns, but the biggest twist of the episode was the semi-happy ending for Rhaenyra, Daemon, Laenor and Qarl???
Unfortunately we did have some recording issues this episode, but luckily it happened toward the end of the recording session, and we are saved by some quick recapping to finish out the House of The Dragon recap!
Thanks for waiting for this episode and can’t wait to bring you next weeks!
This week we have three different shows to break down and we waste no time getting into in depth breakdowns of She Hulk, House of the Dragon and *please welcome to the podcast* ANDOR!!!!
While we really do enjoy discussing the insane amount of mutants and tidbits they’re bringing into She-Hulk and all of the gossip going down in Westeros, we have been patiently awaiting the arrival of one of our favorite Star Wars characters, Cassian Andor. Our Latino king, Diego Luna, has reprised his role, alongside an extremely talented cast, with a BORICUA in the mix as well (that means Puerto Rican for all you uncultured folk)
There was a pretty massive time jump in House of the Dragon, with a serious change of actors and quite a few deaths in this past episode. It’s getting gritty.
We may have skipped nerd news this week, but wow – we got you covered in catching up with all of the nerd content if you haven’t had the chance to watch all 4 episodes of Andor, 6 episodes of House of the Dragon and 7 episodes of She-Hulk. We weren’t lying when we were saying its overwhelming…..
