Forty One:Baby Batman is a Bad Idea

SIZE

Recorded on September 13, 2015

Discussion:

We discuss the new television shows premiering next month.

“Supergirl” seems like it will be great girl power tv and we hope gets the vibe right. Melissa Benoist gets the Not Ugly Award.

All are excited for “Arrow“, “Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow“

We continue to lament how badly “Gotham” gets it wrong. On all levels.

Seen:

Andrew has restarted “Star Trek Voyager”. Patrick approves and agrees it has a very different vibe than other Star Trek shows.

Christopher has dived into “Longmire“ season 4 on Netflix. “Strike Back” is in it’s final season and continues to be top fun. And he is pleased both it’s leads have found gigs on NBC shows this season

Patrick actually pays money and spends time to see “Fantastic Four” It’s terrible. The movie is disjointed filmmaking. Not even solid performances can save it.
Read:

Andrew completes “Caliban’s War” in less than seven days. Chris and Andrew refrain from in depth discussion as Patrick is only half way through. Andrew has started “The Martian” and will finish it by the time the movie of the same name is released.

Christopher sings the praises of the “Star Wars”. “Star Wars: Vader” continues to be the strongest story line. He is on Book five of the Expanse “Nemesis Games“.

Patrick reads “Caliban’s War” He feels weird being the only not done yet.

Played:

Andrew and Patrick play “Castle Panic” and drink beers with Legendary Listener, Adria and Patrick’s Partners-in-Crimer when Andrew and Adria visited Portland last week.

Andrew discuss Destiny 2.0

Chris plays “Diablo III“, he has created a season 4 character. And is playing older characters as well. He, of course, continues with “Rocket League“.

Patrick plays “Castle Panic“ and gets drunks with Andrew in Portland. He downloads and plays Dungeon Quest a fun mobile app game for Apple and Android.

Trivia:

When Anakin is brought before the Jedi counsel in “The Phantom Menace” he is asked to divine certain images from a computer screen. What are the four images he divines in the correct order?

The Boys have no idea.

Discussion:

The new trailer for “The Martian“. We are very excited for this movie. Our discussion covers Ridley Scott, his long, uneven, but legendary career, the magnificent cast for this film and stellar novel the movie is based upon.

We discuss an online quiz that tests your geek movie cred. We really can’t dispute the films included.http://www.listchallenges.com/100-basic-training-movies-at-the-nerd-academy

Take if for yourself and let us know your score!

Seen:

Unseen: “Fantastic Four” We might see it to have a more informed opinion

Christopher continues with “Dark Matter”. The first season is coming to a close and it’s been solid entertainment. He took his youngest daughter, Keira, to seen “Ant Man“, she loved it. Movie is surprisingly effective in emotionally connecting the viewer to the ants.

Andrew saw “Hitman: Agent 47“ and not it’s as bad as he thought it would be. Most of it doesn’t make a lot of sense though.

Patrick watched “Sinister Part 1“. Scary, like poop scared out of you scary.

Patrick watched “What We Do In the Shadows”. New Zealand brand of humor.

Read:

Andrew finishes “Leviathan Wakes” Spoilers abound! Come back in Five minutes!

Patrick purchased “Caliban’s War” on Audible, the Second book of The Expanse series, he hadn’t listened to any of it yet, but was enjoying “Ready Player One” again.

Christopher is deep in “The Player of Games”. As a gamer himself, he wishes the book was a little more detailed on how the games the main character is a master of actually work.

Played:

Andrew and Christopher play “Destiny“ and they purchase the most coveted weapon in the game, the Gjallarhorn, so fun but insanely over powered. The weapon doesn’t take a lot of skill to be good with it.

Christopher works to unlock flying in the land of Draenor in “World of Warcraft”. And of course, “Rocket League”!

Patrick plays “Castle Panic“. He feels like he has mastered the mechanics of the game after just a couple sessions, fun, but not top tier as far as table top games go.
