We kick this week’s episode off with Marx’s review of the new Dungeons & Dragons movie in which Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and Regé-Jean Page kick some dragon butt. Marx feels that this version of the film is a big improvement over the 2000 version. As it pulls in more from the various different settings that feature in the D&D Table Top Games.
Our D&D Chat sort of moves over into a movie discussion in general where we discuss the DC movies and how all the different films seem to be somewhat disjointed from each other. As the movie chat moves toward Superman. We move into discussing Superman & Lois and do a quick catch-up on some of the more recent episodes.
From Superman. We move on to Gotham Knights, which sees the group get called The Gotham Knights for the first time. We discuss some of the mythology that this show is using from the comics and how much fun the writers seem to be having with The Court of Owls.
Boldly moving on we chat a little about episodes 7, 8 & 9 of Picard but focus mostly on the episode ‘Vox’ in which it is revealed that Jack is connected to The Borg. We chat a lot about the closing few moments of the episode in which we see The Enterprise – D for the first time in nearly 30 years and how that made us feel. We also chat about our disappointment at the death of the dipshit from Chicago.
Staying in the science fiction realm. We move on to The Mandalorian’s penultimate episode in which Grogu gets his own robot body suit. And have a bit of a laugh about some of the things we can see Grogu saying with his new toy other than Yes and No. We also talk about the return of Moff Gideon and discuss whether there could be a traitor among The Mandalorians.
The final TV Show we discuss is the new series The Power, which premiered on Amazon earlier in the month. We talk about some of the show’s more interesting characters and chat about how it will likely flip the tables by showing us a world in which women become more dominant in this world thanks to the Powers that they seem to have developed as teenagers.
