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 One Eight: The Rise of Skywalker footage One Shot
Recorded on 8/28/19
We record this episode late at night and we get a little slap happy.
We dissect nearly frame by frame the current footage of Star WarsEpisode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. We posit our hopes, extrapolations, and our truly wild theories. Chris is the MVP as he poses the most mind-melty theory Andrew and Patrick have heard yet.
The link below takes you to the official starwars.com Episode IX page. Watch the footage for yourself and share your theories with us. We’d love to hear them.
This episode is extra long for your extra enjoyment. We catch up on Star Wars and geek related news. We lament the worst line in the history of our favorite film franchise (and maybe the history of cinema). Chris is excited to learn of the return of one of our favorite Showtime shows, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. He also can’t seem to quit a show he finds deeply flawed. Andrew and Chris sell the Patrick on the Netflix series, Mindhunter. The Brothers spend much of the episode discussing Tarantino’s latest fairy tale epic, Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood.
Episode Sixty Eight: The Rogue One One Shot
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.
SPOILERS. ALL OF THEM. IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE MOVIE DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE. GO SEE IT. YOU ARE THE LAST ONE.
The most anticipated movie ever is released. And we react to it, (obviously). Our theories are confirmed and exploded. We share our viewing stories. We report the news of its release and we share our hopes for the re-launched and reinvigorated franchise. We record in the same room and 2/3rds of us are drinking. We feel we have been building to this since our podcast launched. This is quite the memorable episode.
Episode Forty Seven: 2 Days, 22 hours, 43 minutes and 15 seconds from now….
We read an email from listener Chris Scott, he has some interesting things to say about our Star Wars Trailer One Shot.
We all have watched the first episode of “The Expanse” through various channels. Episode 2 will air on 12/16. We all love the books and can’t wait to see if the series get’s it right. It has the potential to be “Battlestar Galactica” good.
The “Flash/Arrow” crossover is high quality and launches the “Legends of Tomorrow“ well.
“Arrow” is all over the place. Almost terrible right now. Even Stephen Amell’s Not Ugliness isn’t saving it.
Andrew reads “Nemesis Games” FINALLY the plot gets moving
Christopher reports on “Childhood’s End”. It is Arthur C. Clarke’s masterpiece. And he wrote “2001: A Space Odyssey” so…. That’s saying something.
Patrick quizzes us on a fantasy novel he is reading. It sounds like a lot of things we have read before.
Andrew and Chris report “Destiny‘s” December Update. Sparrow Racing League and the future of “Destiny” being free to play events rather than huge DLCs.
Andrew has purchased Halo 5 Xbox On but has yet to hook it up. He has been BUSY!
Patrick is playing “Fallout 4” and streaming on Twitch. He dies a lot. It’s pretty awesome.
Episode Thirty Three “McConaughey isn’t the only one who cried
Recorded April 19th 2015
Watch it and you’ll understand
We dissect, discuss, examine, hammer and bludgeon four different newly released trailers. “Terminator Genisys”, “Ant Man” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”
Christopher and Andrew are current with “Arrow” and “The Flash”. “The Flash” continues to impress. “Arrow” needs to be a superhero show again.
Christopher and Andrew insist Patrick binge-watch “Daredevil” on Netflix. It is pitch perfect. Andrew says that a lot
Patrick is in full Trek mode. He has finished “Star Trek: Voyager” and has moved onto “Star Trek: Enterprise” He prefers the latter. Jolene Blalock gets special recognition this week.
Patrick finishes “Leviathan Wakes” and has restarted “Ready Player One“, he promises to finish “Batman Eternal”
Christopher has started “Caliban’s War“, calls it outstanding. He further asserts “Darth Vader” is best of Star Wars comics Marvel has released.
Andrew and Christopher have both finished “Batman Eternal”. Andrew is current with “Thor” and is enamored with the book on multiple levels. He doesn’t even care who the female Thor will turn out to be.
Andrew talks “Destiny” and the announcement of House of Wolves expansion dropping on 5/19/15.
Christopher and Diablo III continue their love affair.
Patrick has started up “Dragon Age Inquisition” once again and he is now playing a Ranger. It scratches his RPG itch. He continues his table top mission and plays the card game “Smash Up“. It allows for Ninja Unicorns. Christopher and Andrew give their nods of approval.
Boys are challenged to guess the total number of pages in “A Song of Ice and Fire” One of them actually comes close. The number is huge.
