I’ve been trying to approach this topic from a completely nonbiased, uninvested standpoint—but unfortunately that isn’t going to happen. For 13 years this moment has played out in my head, and I didn’t quite know what to make of it once it came through the pipeline. However, I think I know exactly what to call this feeling I have, relief. It’s been far too long since the release of the first spider-man movie and at that time I was excited, really really excited; kind of like a teenage girl at a Justin Beiber concert.

We have been pretty lax with the content lately, but fear no more, 2015 will be the year of NerdSynq #Yanerdme. I am here to share with you the 2015 promo of the RadioShow, a few clips to wet your whistle to see how we are behind those microphones.  If you haven’t checked the show out you can find it on both iTunes and Podomatic–but here are the links and the video for your viewing pleasure!

NERDSYNQAnd here is the video we have all been waiting for at NERDSYNQ:

What’s up ladies and gentleman! 2014 is coming to a close and we are hoping that 2015 really turns everything around. We have great writers coming on board, and more than enough content to post for your viewing pleasure–but we forgot to mention that we have a new show. These very very important things that slip our minds. For that we apologize for not trafficking it through the appropriate channels, but we hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Infinity # 5

Infinity5

This crossover has become so scrutinized that it has been become underrated.  Infinity is the best crossover of the year hands down, now that is not saying much in a down year for crossovers. Uplifting victories and crushing defeats, epic space battles, and not too mention the son of Thanos that happens to also be an inhuman! What more could people want?! Too often crossovers are like those comedies movies that all the actual funny parts are in the commercials and previews.With Infinity what you see is exactly what you get there is a ton of foreshadowing and not a bunch of surprises. To some that might be a negative but for me its like seeing your thoughts brought to life through the artist hands.

In this issue Thane’s true nature is triggered by the terrigen mist but he’s captured by Ebony Maw. The avengers have saved countless other planets and galaxies from the threat of the Builders but now have to save Earth from Thanos. But not the Avengers are not alone they have the help of their comrades in arms from the battle with the Builders.  I’m looking forward to the conclusion next month and seeing just what Thane can do along with the combined might of the Avengers, the Shiar, and Kree. Overall i give this issue a solid 3.5 out 5.

I don’t believe that there has been this much hype for a new TV show in quite some time. Ever since there was talk of the show coming to network television, people have wondered if it would be a success without Agent Coulson. Now people know that he made it through the Battle of New York, but at what extent? He spent an unknown amount of time in Tahiti recovering. But is that what really has happened? His character seems to be the Bosley to the SHIELD’s Charlie’s Angels. An older gentleman that makes his way into the field making funny quips, talking about vacation days and talking about his precious car.

It’s great to see Cobie Summers make an appearance as Maria Hill to at least introduce the series, but I wouldn’t expect to see her much in the series. I don’t know if Agent Hill would really bring anything to the show other than giving the opening report and having a satisfied or disappointed look at the end of an episode depending on how the team did.

Referring to the Avenger’s movie and Iron Man 3 was a good seg-way to the show, but it seems like they tied the movies in with the show a little too quickly. It should be spread out over the first couple of episodes so people can see if they will mention what has recently happened within the Marvel Universe. Maybe give a little back story to SHIELD so people aren’t looking for only movie references.

The show features a great cast of agents. Fitz and Simmons are a great comic relief to a serious situation as well as Agent Coulson. Agent Ward is the all-around prodigy within the group and Agent Melinda May is the veteran who stepped down from the field to take an easy desk job, who then dragged back into action with the promise of just driving a vehicle. And you have the wild card that is still undecided about joining the team, Skye. She was a member of the group called the Rising Tide, who had hacked into the SHIELD computers and knew more about what was going on in the world than they knew.

Within the first episode there was reference made to Iron Man 3 with the Extremis serum, which was the main plot point of the pilot episode. A common man, Mike Peterson, was injured on the job, and was promised to gain more strength than he could imagine. The serum was placed into his body giving him super strength, but it had the same side effects as in Iron Man 3. Fitz and Simmons had to find a way to stop the serum from making Mike explode and without shooting him so he could live to be with his son, Ace. They were able to counteract the serum with their own and were able to save Mike just moments before he was about to explode and kill everyone in a train station, which would have ended the series fairly quickly.

There is great potential for this show with past members of the Marvel Universe making quest appearances to possibly introducing characters from the next chapters of the Marvel Movie Universe. And hopefully they have Samuel L Jackson make an appearance as Nick Fury. You can never go wrong with Sam Jackson.
