Episode 96: And Justice For All

And Justice For All

Episode 96: And Justice For All

This week we dive back into Star Trek the Next Generation with justice for all in the episode Justice! This is probably no one’s favorite Star Trek episode so Aaron and David tackle it together. Justice is a not bad episode but it is a fairly silly episode with lots of barely dressed beautiful people who’s only punishment for being naughty isn’t a spanking it’s death! The prime directive gets evoked quite a bit in Justice so once we finish talking about the episode we discus the prime directive itself and why they shouldn’t of ever visited the Edo world in the first place. Is there a special drink or cocktail that gets you in the mood? You know the mood I’m talking about! Well fix yourself a glass because it’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 92: Duet in C#

Episode 92: Duet in C#

Star Trek Deep Space Nine Season 1 can be a tough season to get through but Duet is the diamond in the rough for that season. It is by far the best episode of season 1 and this is what we talk about this week on Synthaholics! We discuss what makes this episode so great and we do bring up its few very minor flaws and why they may or may not be flaws. Before we get started this week we do go over some of the news CBS put out about Star Trek Discovery, and briefly touch on Bryan Fuller’s replacement as showrunner. We also bring you a very “Special” Duet please don’t turn off the episode, bear it because there is a little more to hear after that part. Look for your strongest men singing badly drink remedy…. It’s time for your weekly shot of Star Trek!

Episode 91: Revenge of the Geekiverse

Episode 91: Revenge of the Geekiverse

It’s that time of the month… the time where we delve into things not Star Trek. Yes I know it’s has been a lot of Star Wars but come February we will bring different science fiction to talk about until the countdown to Episode 8. Once again Josiah and Trevor for The Geekiverse join us to talk about the very last George Lucas Star Wars film The Revenge of the Sith. We all go over our highs and lows from the film and we talk a little about how the different commentaries brought different things to light to us for the films. We look back on this and remember this movie is like remembering old times. Jamie LeRoy makes her debut appearance on our show this Episode! I think I’ll have whatever Obi-wan started drinking after he witnessed the Jedi being massacred and leaving his friend to burn to death on the side of a volcano. Actually let’s make it a double it’s time for this weeks shot of Science Fiction!

For more on Star Wars and the upcoming Rouge One check out The Geekiverse they will have more news info and speculation on that movie in the coming weeks!

Episode 89: Worst of the Worst Part 2

Episode 89: Worst of the Worst Part 2

This week Holly Michelle joins us again for this time for our worst of the worst part 2! Our job was to pick 3 episodes each that we think are some of the worst Star Trek has to offer. Once we pick our episodes we keep them secret from each other to not influence the decision of the others. Then we recorded this episode for you guys. The secrecy was nice because we had some overlap on our picks something we didn’t have on our first worst of the worst episode. With any thing named Worst of the Worst keep in mind this is a subjective topic and personal to each of us based on our tastes. But if you want to tell us why you think these episodes are great or want to make suggestions on episodes that are worse please email us and we will read it on a future episode! So swing open the doors on your favorite liquor cabinet it is time for your weekly shot or 7 of Star Trek!

Episode 88: Sympathy for the Devil

Episode 88: Sympathy for the Devil

This week we take a trip to the Star Trek the animated series to talk about The Magicks of Magas-tu. We figured it has been a long enough break from the insanity that is the animated series and here we go again! This time the enterprise visits the center of the galaxy with no mentions of any great barrier to meet a planet full of demons and get put on trial for being human! Aaron and David have a very difficult time staying on topic with this one as it leads to all sorts of conversations that sometimes have a tangential connection or no connection at all to this episode. See the crew meet the Devil, see Spock draw pentagrams, see Kirk wield lightning in a wizard battle, or don’t see this episode at all! But please listen to our take on the episode and all the off topic shenanigans we get into! Go to the liquor cabinet and find your highest proof drink and grab your tallest glass you are gonna need it for this weeks shot of Star trek!

Episode 83: Midi-chlorian Prophylactics

Episode 83: Midi-chlorian Prophylactics

This week we welcome our new friend Robbie Palmer of Artful Gremlins to join us on our new episode format. This month we start doing one non Star Trek episode a month and with Star Wars Rogue One coming in December we thought we’d start with one prequel a month then talk about Rogue One in January. We will be talking other sci-fi once a month not just Star Wars. The three of us look back to our earliest memories of Star Wars and learn new things about each other. We talk about the excitement leading up to The Phantom Menace and what it ultimately disappointed us. We then discuss the expanded theory by YouTuber Lockstin / Gnoggin about how Jar Jar may have been a Sith Lord all along. It’s time to spike your tall glass of blue Bantha milk with your Liquor of choice it’s time for your monthly shot of non Trek Sci-fi!
