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!

The Can’t Can’t

CHECK OUT THE AD HERE: https://goo.gl/Wf9pDd

The ad boys are back in town, just like Tim Horton’s coffee! InADmissible tears down a trusted coffee brand’s terrible ad as they rebuild the “Tim Horton’s Coffee: The Musical” TV spot.

There’s not much to this ad other than snappy editing and terrible music so Quinn and Mikael push it to the extreme. We don’t want quirky coffee: we want classy coffee. Come on, corporations: keep your brands in check!

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.

Live from the Gardens: The Departure

Strap in for some transformative discussion of the caterpillar and the butterfly, the two main morphs we saw in Animorphs #19: The Departure!

What kind of danger do caterpillars pose to humans? What’s the difference between a butterfly and moth chrysalis? How do butterflies taste stuff? Find out the answer to this and many more questions on this metamorphic episode of Live from the Gardens!

Hypothetical Question of the Week: If you could pupate and come out the other side as someone else, who would that person be?

Back to the Future IV: Dream On

CHECK OUT THE AD HERE: https://goo.gl/7KTmqg.

Quinn and Mikael, your two trusty tradesmen of the marketing world, take a poke at Kia’s “Feel Something Again” ad that aired during the 2018 Superbowl.

Our heroes tear down this atrocious and misguided ad while simultaneously reflecting on the fact that, yes, they also are getting old. The difference between our ad boys and the featured Steve Tyler: they’re not super, super, super, super rich and famous.

Daredevil 2003

My friend Taylor enters the basement and we review 2003’s Daredevil! Sorry not the series. We talk about how terrible Colin Farrell is. And how terrible Ben Affleck is. And Jennifer Garner. There is a lot bad with this movie. But the podcast was fun! That’s all that matters right?

Animorphs #19: The Departure

Tune in this week as The Dork-Bajir Chronicles covers Animorphs #19: The Decision, the one where Cassie decides to leave the Animorphs and trusts a Yeerk way too much!

We dig into the real nitty gritty of the series in what is probably the best Cassie book to date. As she befriends a Controller and even protects her enemy from harm, the Fanimorphs go back and forth over the philosophy of the war and the series itself.

Also, don’t worry: there’s plenty of stupid jokes to tide you over the serious parts.

Here is Mattingly’s original sketch of the cover art, as we discussed this episode: goo.gl/xomt5e
