One Five Seven: A Cast of Thousands

Episode One Five Seven: A Cast of Thousands!

Recorded January 3rd 2021

This episode is truly supersized.  And we have so many special guests it’s almost silly.  Brothers and nephews and nieces and girlfriends and brothers-in-law and cousins and The Progenitor himself, our father, the tata, Timothy appears.  Each special guest gives their picks for their favorite geeky thing of 2020, be it movies, TV, games or books.   We look forward to 2021 and all the geeky things the new year has to offer.

We get a special treat as our father recounts just where the geekiness we all possess originated.  This episode does not disappoint.

Trivia is 2020 Box Office and completely impossible because no one really remembers going to the movies

Happy New Year!  Wear a Mask!

Better late than never!  We recap and react to the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian titled “The Rescue.”   We experience some significant technical difficulties and our discussion is unfortunately cut short.  Needless to say, we love this episode.  The action, the reveals and maybe our favorite sequence in all of Star Wars.

We move on from this series of One Shots to another series of One Shots for season 5 of The Expanse.  We love our space opera here at the BrothersGeek.

Next week a special episode with special guests as we bid 2020 fucking adieu.

Trivia is cut off. So no one fails, or more accurately, no proof of anyone’s failure.

We, your humble BrothersGeek, don’t just react and recap The Mandalorian season two episode titled “The Believer.”  We give our hottest takes on the enormous content announcement from Disney Investors Day.  We finally are getting promised MCU Disney+ content long delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Patrick feels pangs of excitement for a Willow series and Chris has high hopes for Patty Jenkins’ promised Star Wars Rogue Squadron feature film.

Episode 7 of The Mandalorian features the highlights of a stellar action sequence and Pedro Pascal’s handsome face.  We share our predictions for the season 2 finale.

Trivia is Rogue Squadron video game themed and leads to a deep dive into our favorite Star Wars starfighters.

Episode One Five Four: Boba Fett? Boba Fett?! Where?!

Episode One Five Four: Boba Fett? Boba Fett?!  Where?!

Recorded December 6th, 2020

We, your BrothersGeek, recap and react to Season 2 episode 6 of The Mandalorian, creatively entitled “The Tragedy”.  A long-awaited arrival does not disappoint in this episode.  Christopher has been waiting nearly all his life to see Boba Fett truly kick ass and finally we see it.  Despite the huge arrival, despite the intense action and despite game changing moments, the episode feels slightly hollow.

Trivia is Boba Fett themed and the boys just miss.

We experience minor technical difficulties this time around. But there is always struggles to be overcome with any great endeavor.

This week your faithful podcast hosts recap and react to all the details and lore regarding episode 5 of season 2 of The Mandalorian, titled (somewhat ironically as) “The Jedi”. We examine the stylistic influences of samurai cinema on this episode. We dive deep in the most obscure revelations of the story and we discuss just how cute Baby Yoda’s actual name is. After episode 4 being agreed upon as perhaps the worst episode of the entire series, we reach consensus that episode 5 might just be the best.

Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau are definitely our new Jedi Masters.

Trivia is Star Wars Legends themed and the boys just can’t get there.

Episode One Five Two: A One Shot about a Side Quest.  

Recorded November 22nd 2020

It happened.  We recap and react to The Mandalorian season two episode four entitled “The Siege”, and it happened.  We got bored with The Mandalorian.  Chris, Andrew and Patrick all react similarly to the mid-point in this season of the Disney+ series.  Our near identical reactions may not lead to much intense disagreement but it does lead to some deep dive hypothesizing regarding the future of the series.    

As a special epilogue Christopher shares his feelings on the Supernatural series finale.  Andrew may undertake a complete re-watch of the series.  It will likely take him the term of his natural life.

 Appropriately, Trivia is Supernatural themed and is impossible.

We recap and react to season 2 episode 3 of The Mandalorian titled “The Heiress”.  Our discussion spans bullshit backlash against a toddler alien being hungry, bullshit backlash against a woman not looking age appropriate and the stark reality that The Mandalorian series seems to be telling a story about overcoming religious indoctrination.  And all this is wrapped up in 45 minutes of your favorite brothers talking about their most beloved fictional universe.   

What could be better than this to help with getting through the Pandemic blues?

Trivia is Star Wars themed and gets very meta.

This week is more of a One Shot than last week. We dive deep into Season 2 Episode 2 of the Mandalorian.  The episode is aptly named “The Passenger” but it could have been easily named Baby Yoda eats unfertilized eggs.  The Mandalorian as a show is carrying the banner for Star Wars right now and we couldn’t be happier about it.  The Mandalorian as a character is carrying troublesome cargo all over the Outer Rim and it might just get him killed.

We also lament the passing of The GOAT Alex Trebek.

Trivia is Star Wars themed and Chris cheats (a little).

Well, this was supposed to be our first episode in a series of One Shots where we focus on episodes of The Mandalorian.  And we do talk about The Mandalorian season 2 episode 1 in great detail, but we veer into other territory along the way.  We lament the passing of icon Sean Connery.  He was James Bond, Henry Jones Sr., Captain Marko Ramius and Juan Sanchez Villa Lobos Ramirez just to name a few.

Christopher has a dawn patrol Gloomhaven session and nearly recruits Andrew and Patrick to join the tabletop game’s expansion kickstarter.

No trivia this week is met with protests.  It will return next week.Be a hero, wear a mask

One Four Eight: The Brothers get spooky, tis the season after all.

Recorded 10/25/2020

Wedding season is over and it was a resounding success. We return with a renewed energy and renewed focus.  We have a jampacked episode for you this week.  If you love tech talk and adapting entertainment options in the time of Pandemic then this is the episode for you!  Christopher has new movie and gaming tech and we deep dive into the specifics. 

Patrick re-watches a BrothersGeek touchstone film, Predator.  We rabbit hole ever so slightly into the Predator cinematic universe.  The Brothers each have classic and new favorite Halloween watches to recommend.  Surprisingly, an Adam Sandler film gets a rare positive review from 2 of the 3 Brothers.

Patrick has been nostalgia playing Skyrim and Christopher discovers a new Gloomhaven’s character’s many strengths.

Trivia once again is Wonder Woman themed and is disappointing.    

Next episode begins our weekly recap and reacts of The Mandalorian season 2.  Watch along with us!
