One Two Eight: Space Battles and Digressions

One Two Eight: Space Battles and Digressions     

Recorded February 16th, 2020

If you know the Brothers Geek, you know we tell the truth, and this week is no different.  We discuss the latest episode of Star Trek: Picard, in which we meet a sect of Romulan warrior nuns who also only tell the truth. And if that isn’t enough, they are also the best hand to hand fighters in the galaxy.  The Brothers briefly digress from our One-Shot topic to discuss the new Batman camera test posted online, so it’s allowed.

Trivia is Seven of Nine themed and Patrick wins again

Episode One Two Seven:  And He Will Be Called J.L.

Recorded 2/9/2020

Week three of our Star Trek: Picard One Shots.  We meet new friends and reconnect with old ones.  The mystery deepens, the Motley Crew is assembled and there is a fight scene!  We discuss expectations vs reality, we delve deeply into what Starfleet as a metaphor for humanity really means of us, and we hear Jean Luc Picard give the order to “Engage”.  It feels oh so good.

Trivia is Borg drone themed and Patrick wins the day!

One Two Six: Plot Threads A-F

One Two Six: Plot Threads A-F
Recorded 2/7
Just as Star Trek Picard kicks off at least 5 plot threads in its most recent episode, our weekly One Shot feels a bit tangential as well.  Rather than simply recapping each episode of the series, we endeavor to explore themes, favorite moments, and give context to what we are watching together.  Watch and listen along with us. Episode 2 of Season 1 of Picard strikes the match on multiple fuses.  Will they all lead to the same explosive device?  Let’s find out.
Trivia this week is United Federation of Planets themed.  The boys get ultra close.

One Two Five: Star Trek Picard One Shot

Episode One Two Five: It’s Captain Picard Day!

Recorded 1/26/2020

We have entered a new year, a new era, a NEXT GENERATION even!  We have begun our weekly series of episodes recapping and commenting on season 1 of Star Trek: Picard streaming on CBS All access.  Our Trek nostalgia is strong as we dive deep into one of our longest lasting fandoms.  We dissect and admire and engage intensely with Patrick Stewart’s return to his most enduring character.  As Christopher so affectionately states, we attend the Church of Trek this Sunday morning.  Come along, gather with us as a community, to celebrate the hope and humanity of Trek.

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.

Crunchytown population us this episode.  But we soldier on!
We spend almost 30 minutes on the “Game of Thrones” season 6 finale and it is totally worth it.  If you want spoilers, listen, if you don’t, watch the episode and come back to us.  Christopher sings the praises of an epic fantasy novel,  Patrick finishes a mediocre thriller, and Andrew re-visits the Holy Grail.  We all play board games together, some of them are more complicated than others.
Trivia is “Star Trek” themed, thanks for the suggestion Smiley Aria of Dames Playing Games.

Episode Thirty:”I have been, and always shall be, your friend”

SIZE

Episode 30 – “I have been, and always shall be, your friend.”
recorded March 1, 2015
We discuss the passing of Leonard Nimoy, a great artist and cultural icon.
We examine his legacy in our lives and the impact of his work.

Seen
Christopher continues to re-watch “Stargate SG1” with his wife, Susan.  He also watched “Batman/Superman: Public Enemies”, the animated DC feature.  He is surprised with how entertaining it is.
Andrew re-watches “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”.  All agree it holds up very nicely and Nimoy’s performance is perfect.
Patrick and Andrew finish season 1 of “Agent Carter” and wish it had finished a little bigger and bolder.
Read
Christopher is current with “Batman Eternal”, “Thor”, and has started “Star Wars: Darth Vader” “Vader” might be the best of the newly launched Marvel Star Wars comics.

Andrew is also current with “Batman Eternal”. His reading of “Dune” has slowed due to technical issues. He plans to follow “Dune” with “The Martian” and then give “Master and Commander” another try.
Patrick is 7 hours in the 48,920 hours of “A Dance with Dragons”. He is already in love, far and away better than “A Feast for Crows”.

Played
Christopher has been grinding on “Destiny”, leveling a Warlock. He plays “Evolve” and continues to be bad at it.  He had downloaded “Clash of Clans” and it is a welcome diversion.
Andrew plays “Destiny” with Christopher just today.  He reports on Daily Heroic Story “The Wakening”. He will start a Hunter and begin leveling in the near future.
Patrick-attempted to play “Destiny” but encountered major connectivity issues.  He downloaded the mobile game “Oregon Trail: American Settler”. It is a sequel of sorts to the game we all loved as kids. He feels a kinship to it as he himself is a settler of Oregon.
Special Report: Christopher’s daughter Kristin reports on Supernatural-Con, she fan-girls.  She reports on the “specialty convention experience”.

Trivia:

Which Harry Potter novel has sold the most copies, and how many?

The Boys are surprised with the correct answers.
