Episode 108: Invincible S2, Doctor Who (S3) - "Don't Blink!"
We continue our Doctor Who 60th Anniversary retrospective with series 2 (David Tennant’s second season). It is a season that brought us classics like “Human Nature”, “The Family of Blood Gridlock”, and perhaps the most talked about episode in Doctor Who history, “Blink”.
Don’t worry we’re covering the specials in depth for our next episode of timey-whimey coverage of everything The Doctor including ALL 12 seasons predating the new specials and right into Ncuti Gatwa’s upcoming season. Hang tight our timeline may be a little wacky, but the conversations are timeless.
We also give a full 40 minutes to the start of Prime Video’s Invincible season two. After the long pause it took some of us time to get back into the city, but the series still packs a punch.
So, hit play, but don't blink. Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. Our hosts are fast. Faster than you can believe. Don't turn your back. Don't walk away. And most of all, don't blink. Good Luck.

We continue our Doctor Who 60th Anniversary retrospective wrapping up series 2 (David Tennant’s first season). Whovians will love the look back at the 10th Doctor especially as he returns for the anniversary specials. Don’t worry we will be covering the specials in depth soon during our timey-whimey coverage of everything The Doctor including all 12 seasons predating the new specials and right into Ncuti Gatwa’s upcoming season. Hang tight our timeline may be a little wacky, but the conversations are timeless.
We also give a full forty minutes to Disney+’s Marvel series Loki season two. Let’s just say there are numerous variants found in our opinions of the series. Finally (after the credits) we close out our coverage of Paramount+’s Star Trek: Lower Decks a series that just keeps getting better and better. What started as a quality Trek side dish has excelled to a must-see.

The 'Verse! Squad is back after a visit to earth to cover all things New York Comic. Four days of coverage totaling 100+ hours of everything from Star Trek to Futurama, For All Mankind, Buffy, Scott Pilgrim and more.
We also head into the TARDIS (which smells of Dr. Pepper for some reason) to continue our DOCTOR WHO Retrospective - David Tennant's first season (series two) and finally close out AHSOKA too with a lively discussion.

Episode 105: ‘Ahsoka’ ep 6, a game of TOP 5 (weddings), and more ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks
The squad blasts off to our favorite Star-iverses. First up is Star Wars to cover Ahsoka episode 6 and finally see some anxiously anticipated on-screen appearances. Tune in to hear what we loved, what we were wrong about in past theories, and what we’re manifesting for the finale.
Next up is Star Trek to cover Lower Decks episodes 3-4 where we get to see how Boimler handles his first away mission as a leader (spoiler alert, it’s poorly), and meet Tendi’s family. Nothing brings a family together like a wedding!

Episode 104: 'AHSOKA' ep 5, 'DOCTOR WHO' Series 1 Finale: Goodbye Eccleston, Hello Tennant
The Squad continues coverage of Disney+’s Ahsoka, and we’ve finally reached the episode that makes this solidly an Ahsoka show and not a Sabine show! Not that we were complaining. There’s lots of discussion about Rebels and the Clone Wars for seasoned Star Wars masters, but no spoilers for any budding Padawans.
Next we spin off back to the Doctor Who-iverse to finish our collective NuWho series one blindspot. Emilia is here to shepherd the squad into the Tenth-nant era #thatsmydoctor, and everyone’s loving it! Well, most of the Squad.

Episode 103: 'Star Trek: Lower Decks' S4, a massive 'Doctor Who' Blindspot, more 'Ahsoka'
The squad continues their coverage of Disney+’s Ahsoka, including that reveal and we once again all align around the indisputable fact that well, light sabers are cool.
As are fezzes and Stetsons and fish fingers and custard…The rest of the squad will understand that reference soon enough because we’ve begun filling in our Doctor Who blindspot! Our resident Whovian Emilia (and Filmsnork behind the scenes!) invites the squad and audience to step into the TARDIS beginning with a retrospective on NuWho. We cover the must-see episodes of series one of the revived series with the 9th doctor, Christopher Eccleston.
To round out our tour of cinematic universes for this episode, we also revisit Star Trek: Lower Decks for the season four premiere. If you’re curious about Star Trek but don’t know where to start, the squad would prescribe a healthy dose of the animated series Lower Decks, plus Strange New Worlds, and then thank us in the morning!
