EXCELLENT…Harry Shearer Will Return To The Simpsons

by Joey Pedras (@joeypedras)

this year Shearer made a statement saying that he would not be
returning to The Simpsons. Any big Simpsons fan was horrified to hear
the news. Shearer voices so many of the big characters on the show (Mr.
Burns, Ned Flanders, and Principle Skinner) it would’ve been very
strange to hear those iconic characters voiced by someone else, if at

No need to worry any longer, Simpsons fans! Shearer
inked a deal that would insure him for two more seasons, and two more
afterward if he’d like. The Hollywood Reporter estimates he’ll be
earning around $300,000 per episode. According to Al Jean, Simpsons
showrunner, Shearer wish to leaved to “pursue other interests.” Which
Jean could not quite understand because cast members have always pursued
interests, and projects outside The Simpsons.

One thing is for
certain, we’re glad he decided to come back. The Simpsons cast has taken
some pretty heavy blows over the year. It would be shame to lose
another big member.

HANNIBAL Is Having A Hard Time

by Joey Pedras (@joeypedras)

Recently cancelled by NBC (not surprised) the show passionately loved by its fans is trying to find a new home elsewhere.

The show, developed by Bryan Fuller shares this troubling news on Twitter last night:


— Bryan Fuller (@BryanFuller) July 6, 2015

Not very encouraging, but there is still hope that it could be picked up by Hulu or maybe even Yahoo! NBC is notorious for cancelling shows loved by millions, and in recent years those shows have gone on to find new life elsewhere. Scrubs for example found new life on ABC for it’s final season (and one season of a new spinoff) after being cancelled. Turns out, millions were watching. More recently, the famously protected Community found new life on Yahoo! which, as it turns out, is also being watched by millions.

Well, NBC’s losses are pretty much anyone else’s gain. I’m confident Hannibal will find new life elsewhere as long as there’s a large, dedicated fanbase willing to fight.

FUNKO Releasing Fallout “Mystery Minis” This Fall!

by Joey Pedras @joeypedras

FUNKO is the collectible brand we’ve all come to adore. They satisfy almost every nerdy niche. Finally, Fallout diehards like myself will be able to snatch up a Mystery Mini box, and might find our very own cute little vault dweller inside. Unless it turns out to be a ghoul. We’d also be stoked about that.


There is no world on a official release date for these little ones yet besides this fall, but I have a feeling it’ll come out right along the highly-anticipated Fallout 4.
I’m sure you can’t wait to get your hands on one or all twelve. I know I can’t.

Welcome to Bizarre States

by Anthony Wetmore (@TheMisterPipes, GhostConch)

Do you have an affinity for the weird, deranged or just plain eerie? This may be the podcast for you. Headed by Nerdist’s own Jessica Chobot [@JessicaChobot] (Nerdist News, IGN, Battle Bots) and Andrew Bowser [@andrewbowser] (Homicide: Life on the Street, The Mother of Invention, Director), Bizarre States formerly Spoooky Shit delves into topics those fearful dare not tread. 

Have you ever considered the benefits of Astral Projection? Felt a bump in the night? Have you ever woken up in the darkness of your bedroom, unable to move, but very certain you were being watched? Have you ever had your palm read? All of these and more come from the daring pair as they talk to guests from all walks of terror. Video game developers, UFOlogists, Paranormal Investigators and even “Readers Stories” from curious enthusiasts like you. 

Drawing on their collective knowledge and curiosity, as well as tangents that border on unrelated topics, however still engaging, this podcasts from the Nerdist camp is sure to delight all, from the deadicated horror fan to the surely doomed horror virgin. 

Bizarre States takes an honest look at all things strange, while maintaining a tongue in cheek playful tone between the two hosts and various guests from all walks of life, afterlife and beyond. Have a listen below to get a taste of what is to come and enjoy something just slightly left of Coast to Coast.
