The 80's are back with a vengeance. Ben, Mike and Murph talk about the various remakes from the 80s that keep popping up. Princess Bride being remade?! There’s enough dork rage in this episode to power New York for a year!
Tattoos affecting dorky life. Murph and Ryan talk with new voice Geoff about Tattoos, Dark Ascension , Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition. Nerdy or Not returns with a 80's cartoons edition. We share some embarrassing stories we probably shouldn't, but we don’t care, its Dork Night.
Also we are going to move to release date to MONDAY instead of FRIDAY. That means you get a Dork Night episode super close together!

We've dropped Butt of the Week, but picked up Nerdy or Not. Murph has his best best transition to date, and we learn something about Mike's mom.

We talk about some more G. R. R. Martin, and we somehow manage to find a Butt of the Week that stands up to last weeks.
