Eighty Three: The One Before The Brothers see The Last Jedi

 

Eighty-Three: The One Before the Brothers see The Last Jedi.

Recorded 12/6/2017

Hello everyone and welcome back to our podcast!  We catch up after weeks of not talking to each other, like at all.  Christopher is a little salty about this and he calls Patrick out.  We overcome technical issues.  This podcast is NOT SPONSORED by SKYPE.  We work on a new platform and things are much improved.  We talk Justice League.  We talk the CW Arrow-verse Crossover event.  And which was better, and you might be surprised how it comes out.   Our Not Ugly Award goes to Jason Momoa.  Congratulations Aquaman!  We, again, sing the praises of Marjorie Liu’s and Sana Takeda’s Montress.  Christopher plans on recommending it for book club.  We plan on lots more play in Destiny 2 now that the Curse of Osiris DLC has dropped.

We have all made plans for to see Star Wars The Last Jedi the week of release.  We are literally vibrating with excitement.

Our trivia is Star Wars themed.  Christopher ALMOST pulls it off, Rain Man style.

Our next episode will be our In-Person Holiday Year End Review!

Eighty Two: We Battle Internet Demigorgons

Episode Eighty-Two: We Battle Internet Demigorgons.

Recorded 11/5/2017

We are back and we are struggling this episode.  We throw the rule book out the window and we just talk but we cover all manner of topics.  We talk about the truly goofy Thor: Ragnarok.  We think it is good fun and a nice departure from what the Thor movies have been in the past.  Each brother has finished Stranger Things 2.  Nostalgia runs thick and fast as we discuss worked, what didn’t and what was truly dumb.  The good far outweighs the bad of season 2 of the Netflix original.  We pause a discussion ofThe Orville and Star Trek Discovery until both have finished their first seasons.  Patrick and Christopher are on the fence of the newly announced World of Warcraft expansion “Battle of Azeroth”.  Neither brother is sure it will draw them back in.

No trivia this episode because nothing seems to go right.

Eighty One: The Two in One Episode

Episode Eighty-One: The Two in One Episode

Recorded 10/12/2017.

We are focused on two very special happenings in this episode.  Well, we are mostly focused.  We wouldn’t be us if we didn’t go off topic and “Syndrome” just a little bit.  We discuss the towering cinematic experience of Blade Runner 2049.  We are effusive in our praise and exacting in our criticism of this tremendous film.

On 10/9, during Monday Night Football, the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiered.  It gave us so much to chew on.  So much new footage to ponder. So many new images to dissect. So many new theories to construct.  What is most certain is that each of the Brothers will be counting down the days until December 15th!

A question from Legendary Listener Shawn caps off the episode.  A piece of movie magic is explained.

Eighty: The One Before We All See BladeRunner 2049

Episode Eighty: The One before we all see Blade Runner 2049

Recorded 9/30/2017

Surprise!  We are all in the same room this episode. Patrick flew down to Arizona to surprise our parents with a visit and you, our loyal listeners, get the benefit of a Physical Proximity Episode!  We discuss the new series Star Trek Discovery, what we like, what we don’t, and how we will have to actually pay CBS money to finish the rest of the season.  We all feel the impending arrival of Blade Runner 2049.  Chris made a re-watch of The Final Cut of the original Blade Runner with his daughter Kristin.  Andrew and Patrick are making similar plans.  Andrew reads a decent spy novel by Vince Flynn.  Patrick reads an excellent comic written by Jeff Lemire.  Christopher continues with Montress Vol. 2 written by Marjorie Liu and it only gets better, and it was already a stellar read.  All three brothers play many, many hours of Destiny 2.  The game is great fun.

Trivia this week is Blade Runner themed and the Boys come very close.

Seventy Nine: We labor on Labor Day

Recorded 9/4/2017

We record in the daylight again!

We feel the impending release of a little game called Destiny 2.  Chris and Andrew will be playing as soon as it launches in our time zone. Patrick is less likely to play at launch as Path of Exile is consuming nearly all of his attention. We all discuss season 7 of Game of Thrones in its entirety. We dissect just what was done right and what could have been done better.  And now our long watch begins for the final season.  It is expected in 2019!  Andrew makes a declaration regarding fantasy novels.  He finishes (finally) Murder on the Orient Express and he finds the ending delightful.  Patrick is reading Descender on Christopher’s recommendation.  Christopher has begun Monstress Vol. 2 and it continues to enchant.

In honor of the original Destiny, trivia is unique and is very personal

Seventy-Eight: Hacked Spoiler Free zone

Recorded 8/20/2017

We bring the SeenReadPlayed strong this episode. We talk online piracy and it’s real world consequences.  Surprisingly, Andrew makes a compelling argument on something important.  We expound on The Defenders and Game of Thrones.  Andrew discovers fun articles posted by a favorite Twitter feed.  Patrick devours Mystery on the Orient Express.  Chris prepares to read Monstress Vol. 2 as soon as Andrew returns Vol. 1.  Patrick and Christopher play Path of Exile.  The Brothers will all download and play with a Legendary Listener when the Xbox One version drops this week.  Chris continues to love Civilization 6, seeking peaceful coexistence with neighboring nations.  Andrew updates Star Wars Battlefront and struggles through its “Survival” game mode.

Trivia is Oscar themed and turns out to be quite educational.

Seventy Seven: Disagreements, Arguments, and Internet Goblins

Episode Seventy-Seven: Disagreements, Arguments, and Internet Goblins

Recorded 8/1/2017

The Brothers Geek are extra Geeky and extra Brother-y this episode.  We recap the most interesting content from San Diego Comic Con.  We hope for the very best with the first trailer for Ready Player One and a new trailer for Justice League points to the DCEU finally getting the FUN.  We can’t agree on the first 3 episodes of Game of Thrones.  Chris and Patrick have seen Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and encourage Andrew to see it. But there isn’t any rush.  We each sing a celebratory chorus about the magnificence that is Dunkirk.  Chris and Andrew convince Patrick to read Murder on the Orient Express.  Chris as two different games of Civilization 6 going on.  Patrick plays Fortnite and has to explain what that is to Andrew and Christopher.  Andrew plays Cup Pong on GamePigeon and laments that it isn’t real beer pong.  Chris admits he has never played beer pong and Andrew questions if he actually went to college.

Trivia is Agatha Christie themed and is impossible.

Episode Seventy-Six: Patrick’s covered in Poo Water.

Recorded 7/10/2017

The Brothers are back!  Back in their respective cities and back to work!  We all saw Baby Driver and Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Surprise, surprise, each of us have strong opinions about both films.  Chris is undertaking a complete re-watch of Game of Thrones before the new season starts up. Netflix has premiered a Castlevania animated series and Chris is hooked. Patrick is reading an intriguing mix of noir, magic and economics with The Black Monday Murders. He is also working to be current on Invincible.  Andrew has stagnated on American Gods.  He is very excited for the upcoming film adaptation of Murder on The Orient Express (check out the trailer below) and has begun that classic and will finish before the movie is released in November.  Christopher charges ahead with Rat Queens.  We all download the free to play Marvel Heroes Omega.  An action RPG that could easily empty our wallets if we let it.  Chris lays down some coin and buys Black Panther.  He has no regrets.

Trivia is Game of Thrones themed!  The new season premieres July 16th!

Winter is here!

Episode Seventy-Five: We have been pronouncing “Gadot” incorrectly for years.

Recorded 6/5/2017

Words fail to express how excited we are to be recording again!  Well, at least two of us are.  One of us gets very annoyed rather quickly.  We talk about all the things.  We talk Wonder Woman.  We give the actress from Israel who plays her the coveted “Not Ugly Award” and we learn how to pronounce her name correctly.  Here’s a hint, she isn’t French.  Chris learns the correct way to pronounce a book title has been reading for weeks and he spends some money at our local comic book store.  Patrick recommends The Flintstones comic book.  Really, he does.  We talk American Gods, the version on screen and in print.  Patrick returns to Fallout Shelter because he can play it on set.  Andrew has high hopes for Destiny 2 following the reveal.  Chris continues his relationship with World of Warcraft.  Only his wife has been around longer than his WoW character, Atreidian.  He does spend some time with the Witcher 3 when Atreidian isn’t looking.

Also, Andrew says “bananas” too much about this trailer for Baby Driver.

Trivia is Wonder Woman themed and it is a failure.
