Dungeons and Demogorgons - 401 – Chapter: The Hellfire Club

Stranger Things is back with a moodier season and we’re here for it. Hawkins, Indiana is haunted and harassed once more by…STRANGE things (I couldn’t help myself). The kids are growing up and growing apart while finding their place in the world. And who is this monster for this season? Mind Flayer 2.0, some sort of Soul Reaper, someone who spent way too much time in the sun? We’re ready to find out. 

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E10 – Farewell – Feedback

The magnetic containment unit experienced core meltdown, and the feedback is smoking. With the madness of this season it’s no surprise your feedback covers the gamut from bad borg face effects to the nonsensical character arc closures. What do we want in season three? A full cast reunion sharing a scene together. We don’t want Patrick Stewart to catch covid, but when else are we going to have the chance to see this?
Hailing frequencies are going dark. We’re not planning Picard Season 3 episode coverage. But if you want to hear us talk about it, consider supporting us to gain access to our premium Off the Clock episodes.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E10 – Farewell

Set phasers to mildly entertained. There were a few good moments sprinkled amongst the madness. Q and Picard’s relationship comes to a somewhat satisfying end with Picard now unshackled from his past decisions. The road getting here was rough, but was it worth the journey? And A.Ron has been cured of Jurati syndrome. Thank you for all the sympathy cards.
Picard Season 3 episode by episode coverage is TBD. Who’s looking forward to the reunion next season?

“Don’t make me defend this show.” A.Ron five times during this episode.
We’re glad to see that elements of this show speak to some people. But when it’s not speaking to us, it’s confusing us. Don’t miss Picard: The Lost Episode, a dramatic reading from A.Ron of a fan spec script that explains this madness. Before you get too giddy about the next Star Trek shows, it’s the same creative team from Picard behind the other shows.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E09 – Hide and Seek

A.Ron is showing strong signs of Jurati-syndrome. And Picard is showing strong signs of “jumping the shark” syndrome. With the Borg rampage continuing and more battles being introduced into the show, Jim and ARon have a couple of useful suggestions. Who else wants to see these guys direct an episode of Picard? Though the show is a shadow of itself, we see a glimmer of hope for season three with the exciting cast announcement. But until then, we don’t have high hopes for how season two will end.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02 E08 – Mercy – Feedback

“Highly illogical.”–Spock. OG Spock said it right.
Fans of Old Trek admired the show for its unique personality, but now Star Trek and all of its spinoffs have gone the way of the blockbuster. With uninspired action set pieces, unnecessary character trauma, and nonsensical behavior of Star Fleet Officers, we’re really missing Classic Trek. The intellectual heritage got blown away by the lens flares. Let’s explore the universe, not have another CGI battle.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E08 – Mercy

If we’re going to enjoy Picard this late into the season, we need to stop thinking about it. Join us as we attempt to answer the pressing questions such as “Is Soji programmed to be stupid?” Seven takes it to an eleven and Jurati is sipping battery juice in an episode that goes off the rails.

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E07 – Monsters

In this episode of Picard, Patrick Stewart does some of the best acting of the show accompanied by some of the worst scenes of the show. Ogres and onions aren’t the only things that have layers anymore, join us as we try to track a couple different plot lines through multiple layers of nonsense. It’ll have you asking important questions such as, is Q a sociopath or party animal? Is Borg-Jurati getting a high off of smashing windows? If you love Star Trek, maybe this isn’t the episode for you, but if you like absurd comedy, this is right up your alley. Maybe there’s too much snakeleaf going around.

Feedback will be in a different episode so we can properly address it. And we’re wrapping up this season soon, so you better send it in at picard@baldmove.com.
