TV Series: Episode 16

We’re back for more punishment as we dig into Episode 16 of the Animorphs TV Series: “Tobias.” Ironically, this episode is not just about Tobias, despite the title.

We delve into some classic bullying, some asinine Andalite antics, and some depressing teenage realities as we try to make sense of this seemingly pointless episode.

TV Series: Episodes 14 and 15

It’s with heavy hearts that we once again revisit the Animorphs television series, picking up where we left off at episodes 14 and 15 titled “The Leader.” Once again, we’ve brought Jarred along for the ride and this time we force him to do all the summarizing so we don’t have to relive this any more than we have to.

Stay tuned for discussion about something being so hot it feels cold (or vice versa?), Marco’s mom being Janice from Friends, and how useless Cassie and Rachel are at jumping tiny gaps.

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #32

This week on The Speaking Tree we talk more about Animorphs #32: The Separation! We SPLIT our attention into the following three questions:

If you were the rest of the Animorphs, how would you have handled the split (after you understood what had happened) knowing that you needed to use one of the Rachels for the Anti-Morphing Ray mission?

If you had a twin that was, like, the opposite version of you, how would you deal with that?

How would you use a starfish morph in your own life for purely personal reasons?

Animorphs #32: The Separation

This week on The Dork-Bajir Chronicles we talk about Animorphs #32: The Separation, the Rachel book where she gets split in two and we have to endure a very stilted metaphor for struggling with your inner demons!

Get ready for Mikael to hate on this because he really does. Brayden is pretty keen on it, though. Some would say this episode features “two sides of the same coin,” or some other cliche way of saying opposing views about a singular thing. KINDA LIKE THIS BOOK IS TRYING TO DO WITH RACHEL’S PERSONALITY. GET IT???

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #31

We get in to some DEEP Nazi theorizing on this episode of The Speaking Tree where we discuss some questions we had after reading Animorphs #31: The Conspiracy last week!

What would be a more effective way to protect Jake’s father in this situation?

How would you use morphing to help you deal with the death of a loved one?

How would you use a peregrine falcon morph in your own life for purely personal reasons?

Animorphs #31: The Conspiracy

We talk murder plots and drive-by failures this week on The Dork-Bajir Chronicles as we jump into Animorphs #31: The Conspiracy, the one where Jakes great grandpa dies and all hell breaks loose!

We go over the many issues we have with this book, whether it be the question of “is Tom a Nazi,” “why did Tom have to kill his dad,” or “why is Jake such a bad leader?”

The Speaking Tree: Megamorphs #3

We talk some heavy time travel logic in this episode of The Speaking Tree, a Fanimorphs podcast about the rules and systems within the Animorphs universe! This week we take on a few hypothetical questions relating to Megamorphs #3: Elfangor’s Secret, the book we discussed last week on The Dork-Bajir Chronicles!

This week we tackle the following situations:

How would you have dealt with closing the time loop after Marco killed V4?

How would you have used the Time Matrix AND morphing to improve your life?

How would you use a warhorse/chimpanzee/hork-bajir morph in your own life for purely personal reasons?

Megamorphs #3: Elfangor’s Secret

This week we talk about the only time-travelling novel you’ll ever need to read: Megamorphs #3: Elfangor’s Secret! In this one, the Animorphs have slaves and Jake is a white supremacist…for a couple chapters.

We dive into time travel logic nonsense, how we don’t know anything about history, like, at all, and how maybe probably this book could not have been released in 2018.

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #30

Welcome back to The Speaking Tree, the Dork-Bajir podcast that tries to right the wrongs of the Animorphs series while taking a bit of a deeper dive into the world that is the human resistance. Today we’re talking about Animorphs #30: The Reunion as we answer the following questions:

What would be a more ideal plan to get Visser One and Visser Three to fight each other, potentially to the death?

How would you use morphing to improve your shopping game?

How would you use a cockroach morph in your own life for purely personal reasons?

Animorphs #30: The Reunion

Finally time for some more Marco mishaps! The Dork-Bajir Chronicles dives into Animorphs #30: The Reunion, the Marco book where he randomly bumps into his mom while skipping school.

We talk about mall chase scenes, my poor Marco’s baby bones (his feelings), and the overuse of the phrase “the bright, clear line.” Seriously. Get a thesaurus. I implore you. I beseech you. I urge you. Get a thesaurus.
