In this episode Jakob and Mandi chat about the marvelous marvels of the Marvel universe. Well, Luke Cage and Deadpool at least. They also discuss Star Trek: Enterprise Season 3 and Bones Season 11.


Episode 222: Breast Feeding

October 14, 2016

222

Mandi and Jakob had a baby. It’s been… an experience. From the terror and trauma of childbirth to the trials, tribulations and total hell that is breast feeding, it’s been a month-long journey on a hard road paved with scabs and slick with numerous bodily fluids. Parenthood is, apparently, a complete horror show.

On the plus side, they’ve watched a lot of the underrated Star Trek: Enterprise.

To celebrate their 200th episode, Jakob and Mandi return to the halcyon days of Jakob’s previous podcast (P)reviews where he’d review movies based on their trailers. This episode they take a look at the four big upcoming franchise reboot/sequels—Jurassic World; Terminator: Genisys; Mad Max: Fury Road; and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Episode 174: SEASON of the BLACK DEATH

August 23, 2013

Click to Download Episode

Perhaps an unexpected pairs of  movies for us to pit against each other, we compare and contrast the cinematic masterpieces SEASON OF THE WITCH (Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman) and BLACK DEATH (Sean Bean, a bunch of random unknowns).  Just don’t say we never scrape the bottom of the barrel.


Star trek Voyager Voyages: Season 7

September 21, 2012

As so we finally come to the end of our voyage through Star Trek: Voyager.

Episode 147: Unimatrix Zero, part 2

Please see our Season 6 post for a review of this episode.

Episode 148: Imperfection

When her cortical implant malfunctions, Seven of Nine needs a life-saving transplant.

Just after Mandi remarked, “I like the Borg kids. I like that they have them on the show,” 3/4 of them are immediately written out of the series. To be fair Mezoti was stepping on Naomi Wildman’s toes. There can only be one precocious, hyper-intelligent, slightly weird ten year old girl on board. Well, no more. Bye bye Borglings. Of course, Naomi Wildman has yet to show her face again as of episode 156, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Anyway, Ichabod makes the cut and as far as teen males in Star Trek go, he’s really not that bad. And he provides a decent mirror for Seven’s journey to reclaim her Humanity, or in Iqbal’s case, his Brunality. Which, of course, really means Humanity since everyone in Star Trek wants to be human on some level. Even Geordie. And, in this episode, Ishmael.

How was the episode though? You can tell I’m stalling for time trying to remember what we thought of it, can’t you? Well, we watched this a while ago. I think we both cried at the end because Jeri Ryan has managed to evoke more emotional responses out of us than any other character on any other TV show.

Seven’s episodes invariably end in us getting misty. So they must be good.
