Animorphs #37: The Weakness

Finally back into some good ol’ Animorphs books! This week on The Dork-Bajir Chronicles we read Animorphs #37: The Weakness, the one where Rachel gets to be boss for once! Spoiler: she’s not as good as Jake.

This is also the one with the not-quite-an-Andalite, Sonic the Hedgehog alien that is apparently going to be a member of the Council of Thirteen for some reason.

TV Series: Episode 21

We’re back for Part 3 of Face Off, the season-spanning trilogy that ends…well, pretty much how you’d expect something like this to end. We talk body twinning and basketball games on this week’s episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles!

Thank god Jarred is back once again to save us from this nightmare.

TV Series: Episode 20

Part 2, baby! We jump back into the epic trilogy that is the Animorphs TV series arc called Face Off. This is episode 20 of the first season and Part 3 is episode 1 of season 2. Hopefully that gives you a good indication of how terribly organized this series is.

Part 2 brings us a continuation of the heat-hating Yeerks, the Big Basketball Game, and many more fairly inconsequential things. Yay.

Per the norm, we are joined again by Jarred!

Ep. 59

A spinoff of a previous episode (Chef 2014), we’re talking about Netflix’s The Chef Show staring Jon Favreau & Roy Choi!

TV Series: Episode 19

We’re back at it, folks: time to tackle yet another episode of the masterpiece that is the Animorphs TV Series. This time we talk about episode 19 called Face Off: Part 1. There are three parts to this arc and, not surprisingly, there aren’t really any face offs to speak of in the whole thing. This is also yet another showing of how terrible TV show Ax is.

Oh also, Jarred will be joining us, as usual!

Always Be My Maybe (2019)

Ep. 58

We’re talking about the 2019 Netflix film staring Ali Wong & Randall Park: Always Be My Maybe.

Sophie & Mitch gush about their new favourite movie, how refreshing it is for a mid-level romantic comedy that doesn’t just repeat tired tropes, and how these characters’ relationships with food reflect their inner struggles and all that good stuff.

TV Series: Episode 18

We’re still chipping away at this block, people. Today we talk about the Animorphs TV series once again, this time about Episode 18: The Release, the one where the Kandrona is busted and Tom has a sore tummy because of it.

Also, this is the one with the kind of badass teacher who has a weird understanding with Jake and the rest of the bandits.

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #36

We’re talking fishy sea creatures in our Speaking Tree episode about Animorphs #36, the Nartec expedition with creepy human being dolls.

This week we answer the following questions:

How would you have taken down the Sea Blade?

How would you use morphing to get your crush to call you at all hours of the night?

How would you use an orca morph in your own life for purely personal reasons?

Animorphs #36: The Mutation

We dive into another salty episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles where we discuss Animorphs #36: The Mutation, the book where they find an underwater race of creatures who…stuff…humans?

We talk about the development (or lack thereof) of Jake’s character throughout the series, dumb YA parables, and how awesome it was when the one whale got sliced in half.

The Speaking Tree: Visser

We dive back into Visser once again for this episode of The Speaking Tree! Brayden couldn’t take the heat so he’s away this week as Mikael and Tessa get real about some of the important plot points in this amazing side story.

Questions we answered this week:

In a world where Memory Dumps are a thing, how would you have hid the fact that you are trying to protect two humans from the invasion?

How would you deal with your Host (and yourself) falling in love with another Host (and the Yeerk inside it)?

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