Episode One Three One: Exposition Dumps and Being A Person
This week’s episode ties up about 11 plots threads and that might be an understatement. It also features our favorite acting of the entire season from Alison Pill. If you know us (and after 130 episodes of a podcast, you likely know us as well as anyone does) you know we love to discuss how science fiction at its best examines what it means to be human. This episode of Star Trek Picard does exactly that. The highest praise we can heap upon it is simple, we all want to watch it again.
Trivia is Next Generation Themed and Chris finds it impossible.

One Three Zero: Hot Incestuous Romulan Spy Woman Vs Ninja Warrior Romulan Nun Boy
Recorded March 8th 2020
This week we discuss episode seven of Star Trek Picard “Nepenthe”. We spend the entire episode feeling the warmth of the welcoming embrace of Riker and Troi. Picard seeks refuge with his old friends, his “strong right arm” and his “guide and conscience”. Patrick finally seems to be coming around to the story Picard is telling and Andrew dispels an unsettling memory of Marina Sirtis. And there is sword fights and a wild girl of the woods. This episode is packed.
Trivia is Riker and Troi’s wedding themed. And is hard as heck.

One Two Nine: The Double Issue One Shot
We love our metaphors here at the BrothersGeek and this episode proves that point. We talk two Star Trek Picard episodes this time around. We discuss the highs and lows, the silliness and the darkness, the gruesome and the actually murderous. Patrick continues to struggle with his expectations with what a Star Trek series should be. We all agree that these episodes struggle with tone but one bright spot shines out. Johnathon Del Arco’s Hugh gives us hope that Star Trek Picard will find its way back to into the light.
A special discussion caps this episode as we talk briefly about the next era of Star Wars called The High Republic.
Trivia is too easy. Expect Andrew to make it impossible next episode.
