Following last week’s near cliff-hanger ending, we’re faced with Romulan fleets, mad scientists, angry xBs, and entirely too many people who are willing to throw themselves into danger to protect everyone. This week, we wrap up Star Trek: Picard’s first season with Et in Arcadia Ego part 2.
Michael’s back with another classic book for this week’s Bookish Wednesday. It’s The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton! t was written when Hinton was only 16 years old. Considering that this book is highly controversial even today, that’s pretty darn impressive.
On Coppelius, we find not only an idyllic settlement of synthetics but also intrigue, violence, moral quandaries, and an awfully familiar face or two. Is there death lurking around the corners in Coppelius as the title suggests? If so, what does it mean for the Sirena’s crew? Does the episode actually answer these questions? This week, I’m covering “Et in Arcadia Ego part 1.”
Michael’s back with a brand new column. Introducing Synth Saturday, where Michael will cover a ton of different Fan Fictions, mostly from Anime/Manga and Books, but stretching into movies and games as well.
Michael’s back with a look at Google’s great experiment for this week’s Video Game Tuesday. It’s Stadia 4 Months Later!
Michael’s back with another Mario game for this week’s Retro Game Friday. It’s Mario Hoops! This one was almost entirely a purely gimmick game to take advantage of the DS touch controls. So before any sports gamers start thinking that they missed something grand, know that Mario Hoops really wasn’t.
This week, Agnes Jurati wakes up. Soji has a heart to heart with Picard. Santiago Cabrera pulls a Brent Spiner from “Brothers” and “Fistful of Datas.” Elnor and Seven have a moment, and Narissa gets up close and personal with a few xBs. This week, we’re covering “Broken Pieces.”
Michael’s back with a film he couldn’t remember the name of for a long time for this week’s Movie Monday. It’s The Prestige, a film all about stage magicians and their unique conflict. This one had some really big names like Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale and Scarlett Johansson, but still failed to capture a huge amount of box office magic.
This week, Picard takes a break from the frenetic action of the first half of the season to recoup in safety with old friends. Hugh and Elnor wrestle with Romulans. Soji has to make some decisions with the help of a new friend. We’re covering ST: Picard, episode 7: “Nepenthe.”
Michael’s back with another Korean novel for this week’s Translation Necessary Thursday. It’s Green Skin Volume 01 by Dirt Spoon!
