What are the worst vampires in the Dresden Files?

What are the worst vampires in the Dresden Files?

September 20, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 23 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

Today, we're back in deepest darkest Chicago, asking what are the worst vampires in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files? How bad would it be to meet a Black Court vampire down a dark alley? How in trouble are we that the White Court own politicians in Washington? And just rubbish at vampiring are the Red Court. 

We're taking a short break to account for the fact that one of the co-hosts is both moving house and having a baby at basically the same time, but whenever we're able to, our next episode will answer all the questions about Tom Bombadil from the Lord of the Rings that you didn't know you needed the answers to.

Hot Take: The End Times was both good and necessary

Hot Take: The End Times was both good and necessary

September 13, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 22 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

 

Today, it's time for another hot take! Sean takes centre stage in a foolish attempt to convince us that the End Times that brought about the demise of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and kickstarted Age of Sigmar was falsely maligned and in fact served its purpose extremely well. 

 

Next time, we return to a more familiar world, that of our favourite Chicagoan wizard Harry Dresden. We will ask the all important question: which kind vampire is the worst (best...)?

Ranking the best duels in Star Wars

Ranking the best duels in Star Wars

September 6, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 21 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

Today, we're going back to Star Wars, site of many an argument between Sean and Vib, to discuss a hopefully less controversial topic, asking what are the best duels across the Star Wars canon. We travel through time and space, jumping from the big screen to television, in search of the greatest lightsaber combat the world has ever known. 

Next time, we're back on Hot Takes, as Sean gives the definitive explanation on why Warhammer Fantasy's End Times was a good thing.

Can Creative Assembly make a Total War: Lord of the Rings? - ft. Lionheartx10

Can Creative Assembly make a Total War: Lord of the Rings? - ft. Lionheartx10

August 30, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 20 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

 

This time, we're addressing Sean's view that there's perhaps something too pedestrian about Creative Assembly's Total War that he worries would ruin the Lord of the Rings' high fantasy. This statement is so outrageous that Vib brought in reinforcements in the shape of none other than one of YouTube and Twitch's finest TW content creators: Lionheartx10!

 

Next time, we revisit the galaxy far, far away and reminisce about our favourite duels in the Star Wars universe. Needless to say, there's no way we will disagree on any of this...

What caused the Horus Heresy?

What caused the Horus Heresy?

August 23, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 19 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

This time, we're leaping forwards in time 28,000 years, as we ask what caused the era defining Horus Heresy in Games Workshop's Warhammer 40k universe. Was it inevitable, or does it all boil down to "the Emperor was an idiot"?

Next time, we're excited to welcome our second ever guest to the show, when we look at Creative Assembly's Total War franchise and ask "where do they go from here"?

Does Serenity finish off Firefly?

Does Serenity finish off Firefly?

August 16, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 18 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

Today, we talk about our favourite space cowboys (or are they?) and ask if Serenity provides a good enough ending for the beloved (at least by us) show Firefly! Name a more outrageous cancellation, go on, we dare you!

Next time, we're back to the grimmest and darkest of worlds, providing the clear and concise commentary you've come to rely on, as we explain the causes of Warhammer 40,000's Horus Heresy.

The Lord Ruler:  Misunderstood Hero or Maniacal Despot

The Lord Ruler: Misunderstood Hero or Maniacal Despot

August 9, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 17 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

Today, we ask whether the Lord Ruler from Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn Era 1 trilogy is the villain he's presented as, or a tragically misunderstood hero with the best of intentions. Believe it or not, we end up agreeing. We know, it's scary, and we promise it won't happen again. 

Next time, we're covering yet another new topic for us! We're heading to the world of Firefly, the beloved space romp featuring some of TV's most excellent characters, as we ask if Serenity ties up all the loose ends left after the devastating cancellation of the TV series.

TV shows in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

TV shows in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

August 2, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 16 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

 

We are entering the world that's almost bigger than our own - the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we talk all things Loki. At least that's what we thought going into this, but regular listeners will know we tend to meander. So get ready for a bit of Loki and a whole lot of other (mainly MCU) things.

 

Next time, we're branching out to a whole other universe, never before covered by Expertise is Overrated, as we ask whether the Lord Ruler from Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series is a misguided hero, or just a maniacal despot. And no, the answer isn't just "both"

Top 10 Warriors in A Song of Ice and Fire

Top 10 Warriors in A Song of Ice and Fire

July 26, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 15 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

We're back in Westeros this week, as Sean and Vib argue about who is the greatest warrior in GRRM's A Song of Ice and Fire. Is it Gregor Clegane? Jaime Lannister? Big man Bobby B? Bran...? No, it's not Bran. Definitely not Bran.

Next time, we're branching out to a whole other universe, namely the one that Marvel has made billions off of... That's right, we're talking MCU and somewhat focusing on Loki!

Is the Ministry of Magic in Harry Potter an insurgency?

Is the Ministry of Magic in Harry Potter an insurgency?

July 19, 2021

Hello, and welcome to Episode 14 of Expertise is Overrated, where two nerds with an inflated sense of their own intelligence take the time to answer questions no one was asking.

Today is a very special episode as we welcome Ellie, our first ever guest to the show! Sean has brought in reinforcements to back him up on his view that the Ministry of Magic in the Harry Potter universe is an insurgency, wizards are ethically dubious (at best), and drones are apparently the answer. Oh, and both the hosts get told off for a change!

Next time, we list our personal top 10 warriors in George RR Martin's A Song Of Ice And Fire. Who will make the cut?
