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

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.

Seventy Three: How about that Iron Fist?

 

Seventy Three:

Recorded 4/2/2017

It has been so long, we know you missed us.  After a month and a half of technical issues and work and life and the need to get sleep.  We are returned to you.

We have so much to talk about.  We recap the latest movie trailers.  We discuss Logan and Legion and The Expanse and The Magicians andLegends of Tomorrow.  However, we don’t discuss Iron Fist, like at all.  Read into that what you will.  Andrew has started American Gods and will soon join the Neil Gaiman Fan Club.  Patrick reads for his career and Chris is finally close to finishing Seveneves.  The Brothers Geek Fireteam has returned to Destiny with the “Age of Triumph” DLC.  Patrick is deeply disappointed in Mass Effect: Andromeda.  Christopher continues to be happy with the latest expansions to World of Warcraft.

Trivia comes to us as a result of Andrew reading Buzzfeed article.  The Boys love it and do quite well.

Seventy Two: Don’t see Shyamalan’s Airbender movie, ever.

Episode Seventy Two: Don’t see Shyamalan’s Airbender movie, ever.
Recorded 2/15/2017
We begin this episode as we begin almost every episode, someone gets yelled at for doing something dumb.  After we get that out of our system, our Re-watch is the series finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender.  We spoil the entire series so if you haven’t watched it, what is your problem?  Patrick poses the important question of what is each of the Brother’s favorite Star Trek: The Next Generation episode? We all saw John Wick Chapter 2.  We try not to spoil that too much.  Andrew describes a spectacular sequence in The Expanse novel Babylon’s Ashes.  Chris and Andrew find a Game Pigeon game they do not enjoy.  Patrick and Chris have embraced the mobile game Fire Emblem Heroes, neither will admit to spending any money on it yet though.

Seventy One: The Ghost in the Podcast

Episode Seventy One: The Ghost in the Podcast
Recorded 1/31/2017
Ever wondered if three adult males can talk for 30 minutes about the title of a movie?  We answer that question and it’s a “yes”.   We discuss the reveal of the new Star Wars movie title “The Last Jedi”.
We debut our Re-Watch segment with “the Ghost in the Shell” (anime).  It prompts all kinds of questions about consciousness, humanity and nature of self.
On the suggestion of a Loyal Listener, we debate what is the greatest fighting game of all time.  Andrew yells “Hadouken” more than is necessary.
We, of course, talk about all the things we saw, read, and played.  And even talk a little soccer while we are at it.Trivia is “The Expanse” themed and it is too easy.

The Magicians Season 2 Episode 1

By Patrick Schmaltz

Hey look! They are not all dead. The season one finale left on a huge cliffhanger. Quinten, Penny, Margo, Eliot, Alice, and Julia all went guns blazing after the Beast and got rocked like a hurricane only to not be completely wiped out thanks to double crossing Julia who made a deal with the devil (aka the Beast, aka Martin Chatwin)

.

From the season two trailers we knew how they were not all dead. The explanations seemed pretty simple and a little weak, but I can move past that. This episode seems to be mostly about where season two is headed. Penny gets his hands fixed but they are cursed–or something–by “Crazy Healing River Man.” Julia gets offered a way to cover up her post-rape emotional damage, but is so far resisting. Q, Alice, Margo and Eliot have become the Kings and Queens of Fillory (which is revealed in an hilarious 90’s trivia scene) so, Eliot stays behind while the rest go back to Brakebills in search of the missing Fillory armory books.

It seems like a good start to the second season. They’ve set up some storylines and hinted at directions the characters will go this season. The show continues to be dark and humorous. Fillory continues to be crazy and unpredictable, and I am fully excited for more! Also, is that healer lady in the beginning of the episode going to come back and fuck everything up for Q?

Seventy:Andrew’s Dryer makes a guest appearance

Episode Seventy-Andrew’s Dryer makes a guest appearance.
Recorded 1/11/1017
New year, same brothers.
As we have reached another milestone episode and we are starting a new calendar year, this is an episode of looking ahead and changing things up.  We look to add new segments in 2017.  We hope to enliven debate and deeper engage our loyal listeners.  Accordingly, we agree over first Nostalgia Re-watch will be the original Ghost in the Shell anime.
Our tried and true segments of Seen, Read, Played aren’t going anywhere, any time soon.   Andrew watched Patrick’s favorite show of 2017, The Magicians.  Patrick played some Gears of War 4 with an old friend.  Christopher read Patrick’s Christmas present Descender graphic novel and has nothing bad to say about it.  That doesn’t stop him from making fun of Patrick of course.

Sixty Nine: The-In-Person-Holiday-One

Episode Sixty Nine: The In Person Holiday One.
Recorded 12/26/2016
We have reached the end of another year.  So we must remember and reflect what made this year unique for us.  Christopher recalls his return to the “World of Warcraft” with it’s most recent D.L.C., “Legion“.  “The Kingkiller Chronicle” dominate Patrick’s 2016.  Andrew remembers those 3 glorious weeks when he played “Pokemon Go” way too much.  All the Boys have their favorites and occasionally we agree.
Trivia is 2016 Box Office Themed.  The Boys get very close.
