Tom likes to write, read, watch, listen, and all that jazz. he's pretty boring.

Franchise This! Episode 01 -- M. Night's "Superhero Trilogy" Part 1 of 3: Unbreakable!

Guess who’s back? Back again? Nerds is back. Eat some ham.

That’s right! After a four-month hiatus, Tom & Phil return with some focus, finally. After nearly 20 episode of How’s That Day?, we could no longer deny the obvious: we’re movie guys, guys! So that’s what we’re focusing on going forward.

More specifically, we’ve decided to rebrand the show in a way that focuses (mostly) on upcoming entries in ongoing movie franchises! Your Bumblebees, your Crimes of your Grindelwalds, your Phantasm Ravagings, etc. Here’s the idea: we make a couple episodes discussing previous entries in an ongoing film series, leading up to the new release of this newest… release. Then, we dish and dash about the new movie, discuss the series as a whole, yadda yadda yadda how’s ya father, you get the idea.

Interestingly, we begin with a rather unusual film series: M. Night Shyamalan’s superhero trilogy, which consists of Unbreakable (2000), Split (2017), and the upcoming Glass (2019). This episode deals with Unbreakable, next week we discuss Split, and we round up the trilogy with episode three, all about Glass. Make sense? Cool.

Come along for the ride!
