Sixty Eight: Rogue One A Star Wars Story One Shot

Episode Sixty Eight: The Rogue One One Shot
recorded 12/19/2016
It’s Christmas time so that means a new Star Wars movie!  We are very happy with this new tradition.   We tell our viewing stories.  We tell you what we love, what we really love, and what we love so much that we got chills.  But this episode isn’t all gushing over the newest Star Wars film, we can be critical of the things we adore as well.  This film is dark, gritty, and fills us with hope. It’s a true Star Wars war film.

Sixty Seven: We Failed the Gom Jabbar

SIZE
Recorded 11/28/2016
It’s a great episode when we have hopeful news to report on for Frank Herbert’s Dune.  We remember the legacy of a beloved character actor from Firefly.  Andrew is deep into Monstress and it is messing with his head.  Christopher reads a fantasy classic by Patricia A. McKillip. Patrick finishes The Name of The Wind and can’t wait to start the next book in Rothfuss’s trilogy.  All the Brothers have seen Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, each feels slightly different about it.  Andrew convinces everyone to download a gaming app for IOS.  Trivia is Dune themed and epically difficult.

Episode Sixty Six: Thanksgeeking

Recorded 11-14-2016

 

It’s a disciplined episode of the BrothersGeek this time around, we keep it under 90 minutes!

With the holiday of Thanksgiving fast approaching each of us has something “geeky” to be thankful for.  Only two of us are brought to tears, you will have to guess which two.

Our collective noodles get baked by the sci-fi drama Arrival and we implore the Academy to recognize the wonderful work of Amy Adams.  We remark on the familiar formula of Doctor Strange.  Also, Westworld completely f*cks us up.  Patrick and Andrew dive into Montress.  It’s dark, violent and beautiful.  Patrick reports on his Wrath of the Machine raid attempts in Destiny: Rise of Iron.  All the Boys slog through the week of Iron Banner, mostly having a good time.

Trivia is World War II movie themed.  And it’s a challenge the Boys nearly conquer.

Episode Sixty Five: Chris doesn’t watch horror movies, He lives them.

Recorded 10/31/2016

Happy Halloween everyone!  Our episode is sppooooookkkkeyyy. Except not at all, unless you count Christopher’s harrowing tale of Halloween of 2015.  We discuss the announcement that Penny Dreadful will continue on in an upcoming comic book series.  You’ll likely recall from a previous podcast episode that we had issues with the series finale, like major issues.  We wander into a discussion of violence on television as Chris and Andrew tell Patrick about the new season of The Walking Dead. Christopher sings the praises of a comic book series written by Marjorie Liu and drawn by Sana Takeda called Monstress.  He insists Andrew and Patrick read it.  We all play more Destiny: Rise of Iron.  We report on the goofy fun of Festival of the Lost, wishing there was a little more THERE, there.

Trivia is horror movie themed.  We are not horror movie people.

Episode Sixty Four:  The “Luke Cage” One Shot

Recorded 10/18/2016

He has been the only man to consistently win our Podcast’s esteemed “Not Ugly” award week after week and now he has his own series on Netflix.  We discuss our long affection for the character, the cultural depth of a superhero show set in Harlem, New York, and flaws inherent with a story about a bulletproof man everyone keeps shooting with guns.  Our conversation covers nearly all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on television and we express our high hopes for the next series premiering on 03/17/2017, Iron Fist.

Episode 63: The Return From Podunk

SIZE
Episode Sixty Three
Recorded 10/10/2016
We really miss each other so we talk, a lot.  Patrick tells stories of the set of an actual movie you will soon hear about it.   We all watch Luke Cage and decide, spontaneously, to record a One Shot about it.  We are all current on Westworld.  It’s effed up. like VERY effed up, but we are totally engrossed.  Andrew reads the greatest comic book in the universe written byRobert Kirkman.  Patrick completes book three of The Expanse.  The Brothersgeek Fireteam returns as Destiny: Rise of Iron brings Patrick back to the game.  Trivia is pod-cast themed, not ours but other pod-casts recorded by people who aren’t us.

Episode Sixty Two: Placeholder Title

Recorded 8-29-2016

We get honest, and random, and randomer in this episode.  Christopher and Andrew admit a sad truth about podcasting.  We celebrate the comedic genius of the great Gene Wilder.  We recognize a recent achievement by a gaming community and Christopher has high hopes of an upcoming expansion for the Addiction Machine, I mean, “World of Warcraft”.  Andrew watches an all-time film-making classic “Seven Samurai” and is mostly better for it.  Patrick slows down on “Abbadon’s Gate” and Chris says the tragic “B” word about a comic book we all expected to be stellar.

Trivia this episode is Olympic themed.  Remember when those happened?

Episode Sixty One:  Harley Quinn, Feminist Icon?

Recorded 8-8-2016

We make our mother so so proud this episode.  We are so civil and get along so well.  We don’t raise our voices or disagree at all.  Nope, none of that, like at all.

We report on George RR Martin’s new TV deal.  We have high hopes.  We lament, as always, that Game of Thrones will be coming to an end.

We all saw Suicide Squad.  We all feel certain ways about it.

At this point, Chris is going to forcefully hold us down to make sure we watch Brain Dead.  Andrew and Christopher are going to assemble a table read for Harry Potter and The Cursed Child.  We all discuss the impending release of No Man’s Sky. Those of us who are PC gamers will likely be downloading it in the near future, if it’s remotely good.

Trivia is Harry Potter themed.  The Boys are smart enough to almost logic out the answer.

Episode Sixty:  Grasping in the Dark, and not just for Pokemon

Recorded 07/19/2016

There is lots of love in this episode.  Love for movie trailers, love for remakes, love for unreliable narrators, brotherly love, and oddly enough, love for tiny mythical animals.

We all comment on the behind the scenes video released last week for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  The countdown to that film starts right now.  Let me just do some math first…

Patrick recommends the Netflix original series, Stranger Things. It’s scary and engrossing and pushes his nostalgia button in a big way.  Andrew feels all the rock music geek feels for Showtime’s Roadies and Chris saw the new Ghostbusters. NEWS FLASH: This movie is funny!

Episode Fifty Nine: Our Ultimate Edition is Ultimate
Recorded July 6th
Not trying to brag, but we sound awesome this episode.  Crispy and clean and oh so fresh.  We talk news of upcoming trailers for a highly anticipated film in a little franchise called “Star Wars”.  Did I spell that right?  Andrew can’t say enough good things about “Power Man and Iron Fist” #4.  Patrick and Chris download the digital “Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition” and surprise, surprise actually love it!  Patrick discusses the new completive mode in “Overwatch”  The Grind is about to get super real.  Our trivia is Pixar themed.  And it’s a failure.
