The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #39

We are once again joined by the esteemed patron Steam Driven, also known as Adam! With his help, we dive back in to Animorphs #39: The HIdden and answer the following questions:

How would you have dealt with the buffa-human situation?

How would you use morphing to take care of sick animals (a la Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic)?

How would you use an African Cape Buffalo morph in your own life for purely personal reasons?

Animorphs #39: The Hidden

This week on The Dork-Bajir Chronicles, we read Animorphs #39: The Hidden, the one with the buffa-human! That’s right folks: get ready to question your morality in regards to giving sentience to non-sentient organisms, cause you’re in for a treat!

Also we talk about Chapman’s weiner in this one. Just saying.

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #38

This week we tackle the most alien of questions as we delve just a bit deeper into Animorphs #38: The Arrival on this episode of The Speaking Tree! We answer the following questions:

If you were Jake, how would you have gotten Ax to infiltrate the assassination team?

If you had to introduce an alien to Earth foods, how would you use morphing to show them the best of the best?

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

Animorphs #38: The Arrival

We’re back for another Ax attack! This week on The Dork-Bajir Chronicles we read Animorphs #38: The Arrival, the Ax book where an Andalite team of assassins lands on Earth to kill Visser Three! Also, Ax gets horny for the first female Andalite he’s seen in years, although it’s all tinged with a bit of sexism (oops).

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) w. Dustin Meisinger

Ep. 100!

Our very first guest returns to complete the circle, as best we can, Dustin Meisinger joins us to discuss the Star Wars Story we hadn’t seen back in episode 1: Solo (2018).

He and I work through our feelings on Solo, both the movie and the character. We discuss what works, what doesn’t, and where this film falls in our (readjusted) Star Wars rankings. Also we speculate about Episode 9, because of course we do.

The Speaking Tree: Animorphs #37

Jake’s on vacation and the gang is left to their own devices! This week on The Dork-Bajir Chronicles, we talk about what we would do if we were in the same position as the teenage rogues in Animorphs #37: The Weakness.

Questions we answered this week: 

How would you have dealt with not having Jake around during the Inspector’s visit?

How would you use morphing to deal with hanging out with your group of friends but that one “integral” friend isn’t there? 

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

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!

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!
