Episode 265: The Expanse Dulcinea and The Big Empty
Today we expand our universe with a little Syfy/Amazon show called… The Expanse! …too on the nose? Anyway, We have a relatively short episode for you this week -which is odd because we discussed the happenings of Episode 1 and 2 of the first season, but we’re all looking forward to more! But first we discuss the news of the latest Star Trek announcement “Strange New Worlds” Captain Pike, Number One and Spock will be back on the small screen at some point. Pour yourself something hard as you embark on this new trek to The Expanse.
Episode 264: Kobayashi Maru Extinction with Jason Yungbluth
This week we need to apologize to our special guest Jason Yungbluth. Because was are talking about one of our least favorite episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise – “Extinction”. BUT there is more! We balance off this bitter episode with the sweet discussion of Jason Yungbluth’s newset comic book “Kobayashi Maru”! A comic book series set in a universe that parodies the Star Trek universe. Yungbluth is well known for his work comic book writer & artist on “Weapon Brown” (a dystopic Charlie Brown story) and “Deep Fried” (a untouchable comedy comic strip). Poor Jason has to talk about this shitty episode, but at least it is good for a few laughs. Enjoy together responsibly!
This week David, Aaron and Holly visit the 26th Century with Guy Davis, who sheds light on the history of the tale of a little cyborg girl who is actually a very powerful warrior from Mars, she just doesn’t know it yet… All four of your hosts this week have different levels of exposure to the world of Alita: Battle Angel, so the varying point of views made for a fun and interesting conversation and surely a good listen! With the state of the world, it was fun to discuss a story set in a fantastical distant future where many cultures blend and survive together and… oh wait… yeah it isn’t actually all that pleasant of a world… Well settle in for the tale of Alita: Battle Angel as we discuss the 2019 film, the 1993 OAV, and the Manga!
This week, listen to Aaron, David, and Holly from last week talk about a Deep Space Nine’s 149th episode where Sisco, O’Brian, and Bashir talk to a woman from three years past… And no, we do not divulge our innermost thoughts to strangers in this episode. “The Sound of Her Voice” Season 6 episode 25 of Deep Space Nine coerces Sisco, O’brian, and Bashir to reflect on their personal lives while a woman they have never met struggles to stay amongst the living; Oh and, Quark makes some Money. Top off yer Whiskey so we can do this proper… Slainte!
This week, Dave becomes “Improper Dave” to Proper Dave and Other Dave! Aaron and Holly talked him into watching TWO Doctor Who episodes- fan favorites: “Silence in the Library” and “Forest of the Dead”. He met David Tennant’s Doctor, The Most Important Woman in the Universe, River Song, and the Vashta Nerada! As established fans of the show, Holly and Aaron knew they enjoyed these episodes, but if you’re interested in what Improper Dave thinks, give this week’s episode a listen, and remember to count the shadows!
Episode 258: Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2 with Jeff Heller of Screen Radar
The finale of Star Trek: Picard is here! We unpack this loaded episode with our guest Jeff Heller from Screen Radar. We all come out of Season One with different thoughts and feelings. Some of us felt that it was a good finale and season. While others feel it was a hollow ending. Will Soji become the “Destroyer”? How can Picard appeal to the Synths to not start Ganmadan or “Judgment Day”? Will the Romulan fleet destroy the Synth’s homeworld? Is this season purely a goodbye for Commander Data? Will Picard say his last goodbyes to his friends? Will there be a Season Two? We discuss all these questions and more. Please join us for a lively examination of this episode. Enjoy together responsibly!
