This weekly episode thing is becoming quite the habit for us. It’s an added benefit to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have nowhere else to be on Sunday mornings and talking to each other actually makes us feel good. This week, we are once again, all over the Geek fandom map. We discuss our favorite dystopian movies. We attempt to clarify the dystopic vs post-apocalyptic film genres. Chris and Andrew try to sell Patrick on the strengths of Westworld season 3. We all agree season 2 was a struggle bus that isn’t worth re-watching. We talk Warzone, Skyrim and Dungeons and Dragons. Andrew is nearly convinced to let Patrick and Chris guide him through a D&D campaign. Andrew is re-watching Daredevil on Netflix and finds it’s early MCU charms quite endearing. Christopher describes his ongoing Gloomhaven adventures with Legendary Listener Shawn. They play via phone and their sessions can last hours. It is table top gaming at its most intricate and satisfying.
Trivia is post-apocalyptic film themed and The Boys argue about it.
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.
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.
