The Andalite Chronicles: Part 3

The big finale of The Andalite Chronicles comes crashing down on Mikael, Tessa, and Brayden as they are showered in sci fi craziness! Join us as we talk time paradoxes in our discussion of The Andalite Chronicles: An Alien Dies, part 3 of Elfangor’s origin story!

This book has essentially the coolest sci fi premises out of anything in the whole series so buckle up for our discussion of space- versus time-warping, more talk of Taxxon biology, and that crazy ass scene in the TIme Matrix tornado of time warpiness!

The Andalite Chronicles: Part 2

We’re back for the meaty middle section of The Andalite Chronicles: Alloran’s Choice. We walk you through the Taxxon homeworld and Elfangor’s movements through it.

If you like lengthy discussions about the ethics and logistics of war tactics, this episode is for you. Also, if you like discussing the biology (and even psychology) of fictional alien species, this is DEFINITELY for you.

The Andalite Chronicles: Part 1

The story of Elfangor! Finally! We talk about part one of The Andalite Chronicles this week and get deep into the story of the purple alien that started it all.

We discuss the logic of Andalite life (including Andalite plastic, Andalite formal wear, and weak Andalite bodies), what meat does to your brain, and whether or not Loren and Elfangor deserve to be together. Tune in for the first of this three part series on the origin of the biggest hero in Animorphs lore!

TV Series: Episode 7 and 8

Our first television journey is almost at an end! To cap off the month, we watch episodes 7 and 8 of the Animorphs TV show: “The Escape” and “The Alien.” Things get rowdy as the three of us (plus Jarred) talk about hospital escapades and how Ax can act so incredibly stupidly.

We are once again joined by non-Animorphs-reader Jarred McClure from the 2 Nerds in a Basement podcast (spoiler, he confirms some very real theories Mikael has about Marco and Rachel in this episode)! You can find more of his stuff at collectivelegacy.org/2nerdsinabasement or on instagram at @vanillajayy.

TV Series: Episode 5 and 6

The month of madness continues as we delve into Episodes 5 and 6 of the Animorphs TV Series: “Between Friends” and “The Message”! Get ready for some more great “morphing” animations and the words “Andalite cousin” being spoken like a hundred times.

TV Series: Episode 3 and 4

We’re back for more! We jump in to Episodes 3 and 4 of the Animorphs TV series: “Underground” and “On the Run”! These are the episodes where the gang infiltrates the cult–I mean totally believable front for the Yeerks–called The Sharing and also the ones where they lose the Andalite’s disc and Marco has to look for it in a Dumpster. Woops!

TV Series: Episode 1 and 2

The month of madness has begun! The Dork-Bajir Chronicles digs into the Animorphs television series by discussing the first two episodes titled “My Name is Jake.” For the rest of the month of May, our stalwart literary critics will be reviewing two episodes of the television series every week so strap in!

On top of all this, our regular hosts are joined by the one and only Jarred McClure, friend of the show and a confirmed non-reader of the Animorph books. Jarred will help our hosts stay on track this month and give them a much needed outside perspective.

Spearheaded by the all-knowing dinosaur expert Scottie of the Thagomizers Youtube channel, our stalwart heroes dive into a mega-dino quiz this week on Live from the Gardens!

Mikael takes a backseat and joins the huddled masses as Scottie quizzes the Fanimorphs and delivers more information than any other episode of Live from the Gardens ever has. Tune in to learn more about Pteranodons and other dinos that are hard to spell!

Megamorphs #2: In The Time of Dinosaurs

We dive into another “everyone’s a narrator” book as the gang travels back in time via, you guessed it, a Sario Rip. It’s dinos for days on this very special episode about Megamorphs #2: In the Time of Dinosaurs!

We talk about everything from why A Bug’s Life is better than Ants to the stupidity that is the asymmetrical crab people: the Macaroons.

The Hork-Bajir Chronicles
