Visser: Part One

This week we talk about the infamous side story: Visser! This is the one where we learn the backstory of Visser One (the slug) and how her story intertwines with the Animorphs…in more ways than one.

Since the plot in this book is thicc af, we split our discussion episode into two parts. In Part One we’ll go over the summary of the book and in Part Two (next week), we’ll jump into some more in depth discussion of particular aspects we enjoyed/disliked/wanted to dig deeper into. Then, as usual, we’ll have our Speaking Tree for Visser the following week.

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #35

This week on the Speaking Tree we’re talking about Animorphs #35, the book where Marco almost gets strangled to death on national television and also Hanson was there.

Here are our questions for this book:

How would you do the banquet successfully?

How would you use morphing to deal with your dad/mom dating someone new a few years after their SO (your other parent) died?

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

Also, as usual, we hear Brayden’s predictions for Visser, the book we’ll be talking about next week!

Animorphs #35: The Proposal

We’re back for another fabulous Marco book! This time on Dork-Bajir Chronicles, we talk about Animorphs #35: The Proposal, the book where Marco and the gang harass a TV personality so much that he tries to strangle a poodle on live television. Fantastic!

We talk about squirrels with Nazi knives, bad French accents, and how Marco is the ideal male gamer.

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #34

Welcome back to The Speaking Tree, the show where we take a deeper dive into the Animorphs universe! This week we’ll be talking about Animorphs #34: The Prophecy, the Cassie book where her brain gets inhabited by the ghost of Aldrea!

We talk about:

How would you have gotten the Yeerk fighter out from under the tree/Yeerk pool?

How would you use morphing to erase a doodle you made on a piece of homework?

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

Animorphs #34: The Prophecy

This week we read Animorphs #34: The Prophecy, the Cassie book where they leave Earth once again, this time with the ghost of Aldrea in Cassie’s head!

We talk about the difference between “biology” and “science” and whether or not there actually is a difference, some serious OTP Alerts all around, and the ridiculousness of getting the Chee to cover for you every time you leave the planet.

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #33

We’re back with another episode of The Speaking Tree, this time talking about Animorphs #33: The Illusion! Get ready for a deeper dive into the book where Tobias gets tortured and the gang saves him at the last second. Here are some of the things we covered this week:

How would you purposefully have gotten caught by the Yeerks?

How would you get out of getting caught smoking at school?

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

Animorphs #33: The Illusion

Time for another Tobias book, finally! We discuss Animorphs #33: The Illusion on this week’s episode of The Dork-Bajir Chronicles, the book were Tobias gets purposefully captured and tortured with his own memories!

We talk school dances, what it takes to build a trusting relationship, and, of course, we have an OTP Alert.

TV Series: Episode 17

Mikael is not here this week so it’s up to Tessa, Brayden, and Jarred to wade into the next episode in the Animorphs TV Series: “Not My Problem.” Incidentally, this is also the thought going through Mikael’s head.

Get ready for some more Ellimist tomfoolery as Jake jumps back in time to a world where he never became an Animorph. Get ready for some bad twists!

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.
