What happens when the entire premise of a superhero’s persona comes waltzing into his living room? Let’s find out together, shall we?
The first episode of the new sketch series, Nerdist Presents, has arrived...as have Batman’s parents! In this hilarious sketch written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (creators and writers of The Thrilling Adventure Hour) and directed by Andrew Bowser, the gravel-voiced Dark Knight is surprised to find that his supposedly dead parents are very much alive. Take a seat in Wayne Manor as Thomas and Martha Wayne, played by Marc Evan Jackson and Paget Brewster non-chalantly reminisce about ‘little Bruce’ while Batman…err, The Batman (Mark Gagliardi)…has to grapple with the fact that his entire vendetta is unfounded. Just your average, oops-I-thought-my-parents-were-murdered-so-I-became-a-masked-vigilante, dysfunctional family!
New one-off sketches, videos, and parodies from Nerdist Presents will premiere bi-weekly on Wednesdays, taking on everything from Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and more – only on Nerdist.com!

Many True Blood fans are battling a bad ‘fangover’ today. The fan reactions run the full gambit from hating it to absolutely loving it. I will be always grateful to the show for the many adventures I’ve had and all the amazing friends I have made because of the show. It is over now but the friendships won’t go away.
Today is also Alexander Skarsgard’s birthday! Wishing him a fang-tastic and very happy birthday! Huge thanks to him for giving fans an amazing Eric Northman. He will be truly missed. Looking forward to his new roles!
HBO posted the video below to Youtube. A wrap up showing some of the final scenes from the series finale. We hear from some of the cast and the directors. (sadly no Alex or Pam in the video speaking they are just shown in some of the scenes) Fans are still dealing with a huge “fangover” today.
True Blood aired their final episode tonight. Seven years and the show came to an end. Truly grateful to the cast for bringing us a show that brought so many amazing people into my life. The show is over but the friendships will continue. Continue reading →
