Episode 199 - TGE Watches Star Trek Discovery Eps 7&8

Hold on to your hats, Sci-Fi lovers! The Geek Embassy is taking on the latest Star Trek series for TGE Watches. Star Trek: Discovery is the most recent offering in the Star Trek universe. Airing exclusively on CBS All Access, this series releases every Sunday night. We will meet to discuss the latest in a beloved fandom every two weeks through the mid-season finale in December. Don’t miss our previous episodes discussing the pilot movie, episodes 1 & 2episodes 3 & 4,  and episodes 5 & 6.

Star Trek: Discovery

From CBS All Access:

Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns 50 years after it first premiered, with Star Trek: Discovery. The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. Star Trek: Discovery premieres September 24 on CBS All Access.

Ten years before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, the USS Discovery discovers new worlds and lifeforms as one Starfleet officer learns to understand all things alien.

Our Discussion

Episode 7 was a hit with all three of us. Time travel episodes are a long standing Trek tradition and are often fan favorites. “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad” doesn’t disappoint. It doesn’t hurt that Harry Mudd is an absolute delight, even if he is a cad and a scoundrel.

Episode 8 returns directly to the Klingon plot line. We finally see Admiral Cromwell in captivity and the return of the Klingon Captain L’Rell. Our main characters are off the ship and on a planet looking for native technology to possibly help The Federation see through the Klingon cloaking device. More mixed feelings are expressed about this episode. We enjoyed some aspects of the story and some others not so much. “If you want peace, prepare for war” certainly seems to set up the need for a big fight in the mid season finale next week.

Really, you need to watch this episode just to see us all “Disco” at the end.

Until next time, get your Disco on!

Our Discussion

We recorded this episode live on Google Hangouts on a sunny Saturday morning. Although we have some trouble with "Disco" as the nickname for the show, it appears we are all enjoying the show a bit more not what the characters and the story have developed. It seems to be our running commentary that we absolutely adore the secondary characters on the show. The main characters.... well it remains to be seen how we will view their morally ambiguous flaws. I am definitely on my own in thinking that Captain Lorca is a sociopath and bordering on evil.

I've noticed that Discovery is darker and more violent than previous Star Trek series. Could it be that they put it on CBS All Access so that we could have a higher level of violence? I wonder if the darker plot and scarier aspects of the story drove the network to put this in a less reachable format.

There is some seriously ambitious storytelling going on in Discovery. Each character has his or her own story line and character arch. It's going to be a lot to balance as the show continues and as it has already been renewed for a second season. We look forward to seeing where the show goes from here.

Until next time, get your Disco on!

Episode 197 - Halloween Special: A dramatic Reading of H. P. Lovecraft

Greetings, ladies, gentlemen, and others.

A bit of a departure this week from my usual ramblings, in celebration of my favorite holiday: All Hallow’s Eve. Instead of a written piece, The Geek Embassy has granted me the opportunity to present a dramatic reading of a piece penned by one of the great masters of modern ethereal horror: H. P. Lovecraft, and his short story, The Outsider.

I will be the first to express bias towards this tale, as it imitates the voice of another famed horror writer, Edgar Allan Poe, a personal favorite of mine. And it is true, Lovecraft is the mind behind Cthulhu, one of the most recognizable icons in popular contemporary culture. But just as Poe penned more than The Raven and The Tell-Tale Heart, so too did Lovecraft offer more than tales of Innismouth and the brood of Yog Sothoth.

So today, tonight, this very hour, The Geek Embassy presents a tale of a singular being, isolated in a far-away tower in a far-off land. A being thirsty for discovery, for freedom and exploration, who may yet find themselves drowning…

To Discuss

What are some of your favorite scary stories to get you in the Halloween mood? Or, if you’re not a fan of horror, what do you like to do special for the season? Let us know in the comments below, and we’ll speak to you next time.

Happy haunting!

Episode 196 - TGE Watches GoT - Reflections and Predictions

#ThronesYall

For this series, Regina, Isabela, join Nicole Tanner from Gaming with the Moms to discuss season 7 of everyone’s favorite fantasy drama: Game of Thrones. Our first episode discussed Episodes 1 & 2 of Season 7. Our second episode discussed 3,4, and 5 and we wrap up the season with episodes for just episode 6, and the finale! For this episode, we reflect on Season 7, including some fan theories, and share our predictions for the final season.

Official Game of Thrones Description

Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues.

It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’ An original series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire‘ series.

Airing exclusively on CBS All Access, this series releases every Sunday night. We will meet to discuss the latest in a beloved fandom every two weeks through the mid-season finale in December.

Ten years before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise, the USS Discovery discovers new worlds and lifeforms as one Starfleet officer learns to understand all things alien.

Our Discussion

I stand alone as the only one of the three of us more excited after watching episodes 3 and 4 to see how the story unfolds. “Context is for Kings” sees Michael Burnham, the disgraced first captain, on her way to the prison ship after being sentenced for mutiny. She quickly discovers not all is what it seems once she is rescued by the Discovery. She endears herself to the captain, Gabriel Lorca, both with her intelligence and her quick thinking during an emergency. He invites her to stay on the ship instead of being sent to prison.

Episode 4, “The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry,” continues Burnham’s journey on the ship. She solidifies her new role on the ship by thinking outside the box and solving a major issue with the new drive they are testing. We are all disappointed about a major plot point in this episode and feel like the writers cut short an opportunity for some real character growth.

To Discuss

What are your thoughts so far on this new Star Trek show? It is quite different from the Trek of the past; does that make you more or less interested in it?

Episode 194 - TGE Reads Storm Front

Welcome to the first episode in our new series, The Geek Embassy Reads! This series is the official book club for the site. We will read a book and then come together to share our thoughts about it.

Storm Front

For the first installment, we read Storm Front by Jim Butcher. This is the first installment of The Dresden Files series.

From the Amazon description:

For Harry Dresden—Chicago’s only professional wizard—business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry’s seeing dollar signs. But where there’s black magic, there’s a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry’s name.

Fanboys

Evan and Dante are both big fans of the series. The excitement the bring to the discussion is pretty endearing. (Even when Dante says that Harry Dresden is the “best” wizard named Harry. Not quite fighting words but close!)

My favorite one liner from the show, “Nothing ends well that starts with tequila.” You have to check out the episode for the reference.

Until next time, get your geek on!

Our Discussion

We first discuss accessing the show online and our feelings about yet another subscription service. Then we dive into the show proper, talking about the sets, costumes, special effects, and yet another Klingon redesign. Yes, Klingons. Of course, Klingons.

Characters in the series so far are dynamic and engaging but kind of flat emotionally. We lack the emotional investment we really wanted from the main characters.  Listen to hear us discuss what we hope to see after the cliff hanger and bait and switch of the series premiere.

Episode 192 - Baskets and Capes at RCCC

Greetings Geeks!

Today, I have a recording of our recent panel at Rose City Comic Con for your listening and geeking out pleasure. This is the third time we have presented this topic but each time is different, largely because we depend so much on audience participation. Because come on. The best panels let YOU speak. Am I right or am I right?

RCCC Audiences Rock

The audience at RCCC was engaged and engaging. They knew a lot about fairy tales from the very start of the panel which is  not how it has gone for us in the past. Usually, I pose the question to the audience intending to trick them and tell them that everything they know is wrong. I couldn't do that this session because other than one comment about fairy tales being "for kids," everything the audience shared was spot on. It is such a joy and a pleasure to present this panel but even more so when the audience truly appreciates our efforts.

Jesse came up to the stage after we presented and bestowed us with her declaration of "best panel of the con." Her enthusiastic comments contributed to how flawlessly this panel went for us. She told us we should make it two hours next time. (I'll check with RCCC and see if we can do something just like that next year.)

Unfortunately, my friend and colleague and expert in fairy tales, Jennifer Leaver, was unable to attend this time. She is working on a guest post with reading suggestions on this topic for the near future.

A New Panelist

It's also noteworthy that this is the first time that Dante sat on as a panelist. At Wizard World, he moderated the panel and did his best to keep us on track. For RCCC, his analysis of the Green Lantern was flawless and perfectly engaged not just what we were presenting but the audience's interest as well. Isabela and I have both had some practice presenting about Jessica Jones and Guardians of the Galaxy respectively. But Dante's example and thoughtful commentary was truly outstanding.

I am always proud of the work we do here at The Geek Embassy but never more so than when we are out at cons representing the site and our geeky interests. I have another article I am working on that will go into greater dept on that topic but I will save it for another time.

Check out the panel and let us know your thoughts!

Until next time, get your geek on!

What kind do you look for in a panel when you attend a con? Lots of audience participation? Lots of info? Great panelists? Celebrities?

BASKETS AND CAPES: WHAT FAIRY TALES CAN TEACH US ABOUT SUPERHEROES

Everywhere you look, in every form of pop culture, at the movies, on broadcast TV, and on Netflix, everything’s coming up superheroes. Storytelling has always been about explaining the world; it is how humankind reaches out and understands that the struggles we face are often shared experiences. How does our current fascination with superheroes relate to storytelling approaches of the past? Can fairy tales help us understand the current fascination with superheroes? Come listen to an enlightening discussion about how everything old is new again and superpowered to boot.

Episode 191 - TGE Geeks Out Over Motor Crush!

Greetings Geeks!

I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing three comic book hotshots at Rose City Comic Con. I completely lucked out and got a chance to talk to Brenden Fletcher, Cameron Stewart, And Babs Tarr about their latest offering from Image Comics: Motor Crush

I can't lie. When I got the list of books available for interview, Motor Crush raced to the top because the premise seemed so unique and inherently feminist. Domino Swift is a woman of color competing in the dangerous world of moto racing. She lives her life perched between the official world of racing, and dangerous street racing where she competes for the engine boosting substance, "Crush." Torn between two worlds that demand every ounce of her spirit, she battles her own demons and those out to get her. My jaw dropped at the end of the first volume and I can't wait to see what comes next. 

This is a live recording and unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a video to go with it. Check it out and order your own copy of Motor Crush Volume 1 now!

Episode 190 - TGE Plays Pathfinder - As the Raven Flies

Greetings Adventurers!

We return again to the depths of the Vastwood and find our characters traveling back toward civilization. Nictis Loath travels with our merry band of adventurers. As you’ll remember from episode 8, we discovered Nictis the only living person among a community of powerful mage ghosts.

Nictis berates our characters with questions about every living thing. Having not been around other living people, his excitement is understandable even if a little on the annoying side. The group also discovers that Nictis might be a little more powerful than they originally expected. Will this help or hinder their experience? Check out the episode and see.

Episode 189 - TGE Watches Dunkirk

In this episode of TGE Watches, Mark, Ryan, and I discuss Christopher Nolan's epic Dunkirk. We decided to break our summer movie superhero run with quite a different epic film. Two of us enjoyed it and one was quite very disappointed.

Official Description

Three different perspectives with overlapping time periods: one week on land, one day at sea, and one hour in the air, create a non-linear narrative.

Introductory text at the start of the movie says that in 1940, after the invasion of France, hundreds of thousands of Allied soldiers had retreated to Dunkirk. As German forces close in, they await evacuation in a seemingly hopeless situation.

Our Analysis

Our opinions differed greatly in pretty much every aspect of the film. Mark shares his disappointment that the setting didn't look truer to the actual beaches during the war. (See photos below for comparison.) Ryan and I both appreciated the artistic nature of the movie overall and how it was surprisingly deep. I will heartily admit it is hard to follow at the start, especially if you don't know the details of the battle particularly well. Watch and listen to hear our thoughtful analysis.

Our Discussion

This is the first time we have recorded the DAY AFTER the episode aired. There is so much to say and so much happens. We talk about the amazing meeting of 17 named characters. Seriously. This is the first time so many known and loved characters were on screen at the same time and in many ways it was worth the wait. (Kinda loving The Hound.) As always, we talk about every aspect of the story and some of what we think is coming. We will record another wrap up episode, looking at the season and the series as a whole.

Until next time, winter has come to King's Landing!

Our Discussion

The amount of action in these episodes is overwhelming. We do our best (and in only TWO HOURS!) to discuss each of the plot lines and the characters we've come to love and hate. One of the most interesting observations about GoT is the fact that we have such conflicted feelings about so many of the characters. It's often hard to decide in some scenes who you are rooting for...

We might record two more episodes in this season, depending on how much happens in the penultimate episode and the season finale. A battle approaches but will it rival the ones that have come before? Only time will tell.

Until next time, winter is here!

Regina & Isabela & Dante & Mark & Evan

The Characters

Hargath (Mark)
Human Cleric
Alignment: Neutral Good

Hargath is a reformed murderer/thief. He became a member of Sarenrae’s order after a cleric from the order showed him mercy. At 36, he started his Cleric teachings older than most and his blond hair has begun to grey. Recently he had a falling out with the church he was based out of due to discovering the chief priest there embezzling gold for his own purposes. He now looks to find adventurers that he can travel with in the hopes of finding a new church and helping anyone he can along the way. Whether that means healing people, bringing evil-doers to the light or smiting  evil that won’t makes little difference to him.

Sevarka Sunseeker (Dante)
Gnome Sorceress
Alignment: Neutral Good

The cheerfully optimistic, orange skinned, green haired gnome called Sevarka Sunseeker describes herself as a professional nomad. Friend to all she comes across, her delightful facade hides a family secret. Generations ago, a dragon assumed gnomish form bedded one of the Sunseeker family progenitors. The eldest born daughter of each Sunseeker generation manifests aspects of the dragon and inherits its magical​ talents. Sevarka is the first born daughter of her generation, and wanders to discover the the origins of her draconic blood and what that means for the legacy of the Sunseeker clan.

Neraden Runka (Regina)
Dwarf Barbarian
Alignment: Neutral Good

Neraaden (Nera like Vera for short) is the middle daughter of a large dwarf family. With 10 siblings, she feels underappreciated and overlooked by her family. She leaves her family with dreams of finding success on the road but encounters disaster almost as soon as she leaves. She persevered as she journeyed farther and father from home, hoping one day she might return home a celebrated hero.

Freya Redsun (Isabela)
Half-Elf Ranger
Alignment: Neutral Good

Freya is a half-elf that is striking out on her own after clashing with her elfish mother one too many times. She wants to find out who she is without the influence of her family. Freya’s mother was born into a royal elvish family but gave up the luxuries of that life to be with the human man she came to love. Freya carries the weight of her mother’s sacrifice with heavy resentment.
