Tristan’s taking a break this week, so Char is joined by her husband, Patrick, to talk about one of his favorite shows of all time: BoJack Horseman.
In this Punch It away mission, Char and Patrick explore how this animated show achieves the complicated task of blending the serious with the surreal, and why this black comedy appeals to them so much.
Have you watched BoJack Horseman on Netflix? What did you think of it? Let us know in the comments!
This week we set out to design a new crew from scratch in a post-Nemesis world. What happened was far better and more complex than that. We went to the far-flung future and discussed what a Starfleet ship would look like if it was run all by Artificial Intelligence.
Listen to our show pitch that we created all on-the-fly and let us know what you think.
Rewrite of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's "Let He Who is Without Sin"
In this listener suggested topic, we rewrite this disasterous episode. For those who don't remember, this is the one where Dax and Worf go on vacation to Risa while they're fighting. While they are there, a group called the "Essentialists" say that the Federation has become too soft and they mock the visitors for being too comfortable on the pleasure planet. For some reason, Worf agrees with them and he helps sabotage the weather system. This all results in zero reprecussions for Worf and his career.
Normally, we just rewrite middle of the roads episodes but this one was begging for attention.
We analyze A Year in the Life for our final Gilmore Girls episode
This is our last time talking about Gilmore Girls on Punch It. It's been a long road to this point but we are finally at the revival where we analyze Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix.
In our last episode, Char discussed what she would like to see happen in the revival as well as what would most likely happen. Listen to find out what she got right and what ultimately was disappointing.
Deep character analysis of Miles Edward O'Brien from Star Trek: TNG and DS9
Lieutenant, Chief, Non-Com, Enlisted, whatever you want to call him, Miles Edward O'Brien is a great character. Maybe only next to Worf, he is one of the most explored characters in all of Star Trek who've we've spent the most time with. We first saw him in 1987 and last saw him in 1999. That's a long time to play one character consistently. A musician, a war hero, a tactical officer, a pilot, a transporter chief, chief of operations, and a professor. O'Brien is clearly a talented renaissance man.
In this episode, we take a look at how he was written over the course of his entire tenure. How consistently was he written? Was he believable as a character? Did he fit in with the rest of the crew? We ask all these questions as well as put our own Punch It flare in the gaps.
