This week on The Bastardcast, Megan Fox bounces on a trampoline, Jeremy and Jason advance the theory that Jurassic Park 4‘s delay was caused by a raptor attack, and then they talk about your Mom when discussing the latest Dungeons and Dragons movie.

Also on the show: Rubber cocks replace carrier pigeons, Marvel bets on black (and also the awesome power of Danny Rand’s V-neck), the IT Crowd tries to turn itself back on again (I’m sorry), and the boys discuss why the term “shot for shot remake” might not be the best choice of words when discussing the new Crow movie.

Do you require more giggle flakes in your bowl? Fine. We’ve also got an ALL NEW Trailergasm, and this time, our two fat assholes are talking about casting Sandra Bullock out into the dark nethers of space, one last lick of cornetto, and a boy named Ender that they don’t care about.

Holy crap this is a full show!… is a thing that you could accurately put in that iTunes review that you’ve been meaning to write, because we’ve also got the (brief) return of Taco Talk 2-Nite in “Taco Talk 2-Nite 2: Taquería Exotica”, and Jason teaches us all a little something about love.

All of that, the Handicapped Cadillac Trumpet Detective, and more on this week’s episode of The Bastardcast!

IT Crowd Returning for One More Episode

IT Crowd

The IT Crowd is returning for one last go and they didn’t even need Kickstarter.

According to Bleeding Cool, the long teased 45 minute one-off episode will feature original stars Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry and filming will begin in a few weeks time.

Apparently, show creator Graham Lineham had some trouble getting his entire cast to a point where their schedules were clear at the same time — not a huge surprise considering how big a star O’Dowd has become. In fact, the Bridesmaids and Girls actor is set to appear in both Family Tree (Christopher Guest’s new HBO comedy series) and Moone Boy, an Irish series that O’Down also co-created. That one already aired across the pond, but it’ll be new to us on Hulu this summer.

If you aren’t familiar with the original IT Crowd, I don’t get why you clicked this link. Also, the show centers on the whacky shenanigans that occur in the technical support department of Reynhold Industries and I am not good at synopsizing things.

The IT Crowd ran for four seasons in the UK and there was also an awful attempt to adapt it for US audiences by the guys who are presently ruining Community. That version starred Joel McHale and Richard Ayoade, who unlike O’Down, chose to reprise his role. Is that why people seem to like O’Dowd more? That isn’t really for me to say.

Anyway, no word on a release date, or if Richmond Avenal will make a return as well, but it’ll be on the UK’s Channel 4, which so we won’t get a chance to officially see it for a long, long time. Luckily, we can pass the time by watching old episodes of the original show on Netflix and Hulu and we can also enjoy countless “Have you tried turning it off and on again?” memes on our Facebook page.


What’s up bastards! Here we are with another installment of NerdBastards’ weekly DVD Tuesday feature. We list what came out today and recommend if it’s either a BUY, RENT, or PASS. We got quite the new releases (5 to be exact) today as it seems the home releases may be back on track (yay, more work for me).

I’m also introducing the new I’m too Special to Come Out on Tuesday section as there is one release coming out on Thursday and all I have to say is that it’s the freakin’ owl movie. As always, we have the Old is New section and the TV Show DVD section.

So what are you waiting for? Check what came out after the jump and see if there is something you want!
