Episode One Three Two: Fellowship of the Baby

Episode One Three Two: Fellowship of the Baby
Recorded 3/22/2020
This is the penultimate episode of our series of Star Trek Picard One Shots which means we are talking about the penultimate episode of season 1 of Star Trek Picard.  An episode entitled Et en Arcadia Ego Part 1 and it finds our heroes finally arriving at the destination of their season long quest.  Picard says “I love you” and we all react pretty strongly to it.  This episode comes with homework.  Google the episode title and learn something (hopefully) new.
Trivia is “Data” themed and Patrick pulls it off easily.

Episode One Three One: Exposition Dumps and Being A Person

This week’s episode ties up about 11 plots threads and that might be an understatement.  It also features our favorite acting of the entire season from Alison Pill.  If you know us (and after 130 episodes of a podcast, you likely know us as well as anyone does) you know we love to discuss how science fiction at its best examines what it means to be human. This episode of Star Trek Picard does exactly that.  The highest praise we can heap upon it is simple, we all want to watch it again.

Trivia is Next Generation Themed and Chris finds it impossible.

This week we discuss episode seven of Star Trek Picard “Nepenthe”.  We spend the entire episode feeling the warmth of the welcoming embrace of Riker and Troi.  Picard seeks refuge with his old friends, his “strong right arm” and his “guide and conscience”.  Patrick finally seems to be coming around to the story Picard is telling and Andrew dispels an unsettling memory of Marina Sirtis.  And there is sword fights and a wild girl of the woods.  This episode is packed. 

Trivia is Riker and Troi’s wedding themed.  And is hard as heck.

One Two Nine: The Double Issue One Shot

One Two Nine: The Double Issue One Shot

Recorded 3/1/2020

We love our metaphors here at the BrothersGeek and this episode proves that point.  We talk two Star Trek Picard episodes this time around.  We discuss the highs and lows, the silliness and the darkness, the gruesome and the actually murderous.  Patrick continues to struggle with his expectations with what a Star Trek series should be.  We all agree that these episodes struggle with tone but one bright spot shines out.  Johnathon Del Arco’s Hugh gives us hope that Star Trek Picard will find its way back to into the light.

A special discussion caps this episode as we talk briefly about the next era of Star Wars called The High Republic.

Trivia is too easy.  Expect Andrew to make it impossible next episode.

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.

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.

Episode Fifty Eight: Winter has come, at last
Recorded 6/27/2016
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.
