On this episode of the Blurred Nerds:
New shows, an old favorite returns and a possible strike looms:
Fall means we are finally getting some new premieres. Foundation has arrived on Apple TV, the Great British Bake Off returns for more and just in time for the spooky season, Mike Flannagan brings Midnight Mass to the masses.
Surprising many Doctor Who fans, it was announced this week that New Who pioneer Russell T. Davies will take over the reigns once again in 2023 after Chibnall & Whittaker. Davies oversaw both 9th and 10th iterations of the Doctor with Christopher Eccleston and David Tenant as well as helped usher in a world wide rabid fandom of new fans. This news could mean we’ll see the series return to form in just a few years time – which will also coincide with the show’s 60th anniversary.
In behind the scenes entertainment news, The IATSE is considering a strike for it’s members which could impact the industry just as much (if not more) as the writer’s strike we witnessed back in 2007-2008. As much as we love our geeky media – we here at The Blurred Nerds stand with Guild members and believe they should be compensated fairly for their work. Actors bring characters to life – but without those who work behind the scenes – we wouldn’t have amazing costumes to fawn over, lighting to set the mood and more.
In the second half of the show,
A new Nintendo Direct this week teases upcoming additions to both the gaming system as well their online subscription offerings. Also, Animal Crossing players finally has some promising information about new content being released for their islands besides new items.
And why Y: The Last Man should be added to your watchlist.
All that and much more!
