It has been a month since our last recording. We promise we weren’t avoiding you all. Patrick was working for Netflix, Chris has been getting his Phoenix house ready for the big move to Tucson and Andrew, well Andrew, has tons of free time but a podcast of just him would be unbearable. We catch up after our long break. We have a truly random argument about who invented the personal transport device. We talk Incredibles 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, season finales of The Expanse and Westworld, Chris re-visits a science fiction classic. Andrew doesn’t “rage quit” a particularly difficult Destiny 2 experience and Patrick is actually playing catch up to the rest of us.
Trivia is Marvel Cinematic Universe themed. It is impossible.
18 movies and ten years have led to this moment. And this film did not disappoint. We spoil things, big time. Avengers Infinity War is a huge movie, filled with our favorite but it really is Thanos’ film. We lament that our favorite heroes don’t get enough screen time but our lamentation is salved at just how satisfying an ending this film has going for it. We discuss its monster box office, which theories were confirmed and which of our theories were totally incorrect. Basically, we loved this movie and we hope you see it soon and tell us what you think.
Episode Ninety-One: The One Before We see Infinity War
Recorded April 25, 2018
This episode feels major. Because it is. If you are looking for a primer on the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, look no further! We discuss all 18 films. We pick our favorites and our least favorites and some of our picks are surprising. We don’t shy away from the missteps and we sing the praises of the unexpected triumphs of this unique experiment in film history.
We share our hopes and theories for Avengers Infinity War. And we reconcile ourselves that some of our favorite characters may not make it out alive. We confirm our plans to watch the new film and rest assured our next episode will be an Infinity War One Shot.
We dissect the geek-dom extravaganza that is Ready Player One, both Spielberg’s film and Ernest Cline’s novel. We praise Spielberg and his singular ability to craft enthralling set piece cinema and ultimately determine he may have been the wrong person to direct this movie. The most conclusive realization the movie may have led us to is that we all want to read the book again. Our discussion ranges from the darkest aspects of geek culture to the great heights of how human interaction has fundamentally changed in the digital age. Also, we talk Mobile Suit Gundam vs. Mecha-Godzilla and Patrick makes the best Ghostbusters reference in the history of the Podcast.
After a hiatus brought on by war, famine, plague, pestilence and Pilot Season, your favorite Geeks with common parentage are back and we are exactly the same as when you last heard from us. Patrick was off making a television pilot for ABC that his NDA precludes from talking too much about it. Andrew and Christopher were adulting to varying degrees of success. But we return and we talk Kaiju and Jaegers. We talk Magicians and Monsters. We talk Avengers and Jokers and Jedi. Some of us have left mainstays behind (Chris and Andrew are staring directly at you, CW shows). More and more Monster Hunt World praise. Chris says it’s hard. We believe him.
Trivia is Fortnite themed. If you don’t know what Fornite is, ask a 12-year-old, They are all playing, Seriously ALL of them.
Finally, at long last, Black Panther has arrived. And it has surpassed our wildest expectations. We do our best to avoid spoilers. We hope you that if you haven’t seen this film, you will see it as soon as you can. We discuss the stellar cast, the rich story, awesome characters and tremendous world building. This film works on so many levels we almost embarrass ourselves with our praise.
Chris and Patrick can’t stop themselves from discussing Monster Hunter World. Andrew tolerates it as best he can.
Episode Eighty-Seven: The Superbowl Trailer Recap Episode
Recorded February 7th, 2018
Did you watch the Big Game? Did your team win? Did you eat your weight in chips and dip? Did you watch just for the commercials?
We recap all the movie trailers and teasers the studios spent millions of dollars for 30-60 seconds of air time. Some made us hopeful, some made us curious, some made us exclaim, “meh”. Find the links below for every spot we can remember we watched. Enjoy and let us know which was your favorite.
Trivia is Winter Olympics themed. That’s a thing that is happening RIGHT NOW, Go team USA!
Two new episodes in one month! Can you believe it? Our resolution is holding strong!
As the title suggests we spend an inordinate amount of this episode talking about monsters. Monsters in gaming, monsters on television and in the movies, and monsters that appear in print. We dissect the recent Oscar nominations, what they missed, what makes no sense, and what they got exactly correct. Chris and Patrick make the commitment to stream Monster Hunter World in the coming weeks. Watch BrothersGeekPlayed on Twitch for all the tier 1 level game play. The Magicians have returned on Syfy Channel and Andrew is loving it. We announce some upcoming release dates and shamelessly plug a Netflix series Patrick worked on last year.
Watch “Everything Sucks” on Netflix beginning February 16th 2018!
Trivia is Oscar Nomination themed and it’s quite surprising.
Happy New Year! We missed you! We make resolutions (some of us). We discuss half marathon prep (one of us is running one soon) and it gets very descriptive. We catch up on what movies we saw in theaters, what shows we marathoned and what old favorites we re-watched over the Holiday break. We discuss what makes a film series a trilogy and what can reasonably be declared the Greatest Trilogy of All Time. Andrew is devouring the latest book in The Expanse series, Persepolis Rising. Patrick has re-discovered his love of Path of Exile. He will be streaming much more of it on Twitch in the coming year. Christopher resolves to complete Divinity: Original Sin.
Trivia is box office themed and The Boys struggle.
We record in Andrew’s apartment on Christmas Day. We talk long and hard about Star Wars The Last Jedi. We spoil almost everything. If you haven’t seen it, go see it, and come back to us. We discuss our favorite things we saw, played and read this year. We could talk for hours and hours about all the things we liked this year and we nearly do. Each Brother gives us his hopes for the coming year and beyond. And we make a resolution! We will record two episodes a month! We promise! (Please don’t hate us if we can’t live up to our promises, like Andrew Garfield said in Amazing Spider-Man, making promises you can’t keep are the best kind).
Trivia is Christmas themed!
From all the BrothersGeek to all our dear Listeners, have a safe and happy Holiday Season and see you all in 2018!
