For All Mankind - S03E03 – All In

This is it. The missions to Mars gather enough speed for launch just in time for 1994. How? Well, some shortcuts were taken, some ships repurposed, and perhaps some small bit of nuclear technology was given to the Soviets by a reluctant spy who presumably would have to shave her head completely bald to actually seal the deal with Sergei. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on “All In”.

For All Mankind - S03E02 – Game Changer

Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of some weird ass love stories. In a show full of brilliant astronauts and hardcore investors, it’s no wonder that tensions run high. We talk about Harambe, yes the gorilla (RIP) and the office politics that are making their way into space. Many of the characters in this show can be described as a piece of work, but Karen takes the cake.

For All Mankind - S03E01 – Polaris

Take a peek into our alternative past, present, and future in the return of For All Mankind. The season is bringing new relationships and piling on the family drama. Are we going to get another land invasion of Mars? How many more wars do we need to fight?! Witness the first wedding in space…and it’s just as cringey as some weddings down here on earth, but more dangerous. But the economy is soaring, so I would like to live in this reality please.

For All Mankind - Season 3 Preview

The show that took home multiple Baldies is back with an exciting looking season. In this scifi realism, we wonder how the show will tackle how space is viewed in an age of expansion, public and private space exploration, and heroism from different perspectives. Which flaps of the butterfly wings are going to influence life in this space age? Find out with us Friday, June 10th at 3AM EST when the pilot and our first episode drop.

Dungeons and Demogorgons - 401 – Chapter One: 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?

The Podcast Maneuver - S02E09 – Hide and Seek – Feedback

“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.
