FAA Admin logs some 737Max time
"So the administrator went flying. This is okay. I I like this story on a number of a levels. I don't know one of you may turn out to be the sinecure. All right but I like the story on a couple of so what? Mr Carteris. Yeah I know right I didn't want to name names, but that's what I figured about how I figured. It would play out So you know. The Boeing seven thirty-seven Max is still rounded but getting closer and closer to returning to the skies, the Francisco Franco all of Of Aircraft. and. And clearly I mean I'm no I'm not naive obviously this was a big publicity thing. All right. The the administrator of the FAA a conducted in evaluation flight. The pictures I showed should him in in less so? To the extent I'm going to be cynical about this. The one thing I'm questioning is the administrator the as really checked out in a seven thirty seven to fly the left I believe that's correct. Yeah. He he I think he other type he's a former airline pilot. Okay. Has a seven three typewriting. And if he does have a later model type rating for the seventy three. He's eligible the service. That airplane. So clearly, the FAA wants to demonstrate that the seven thirty seven is is safe and or you know and is is is deserving of of returning into flight service, and so they did a thing where now the story I have posted here is actually from before he said that he's going to do this thing but apparently it's been it's heads happened right on this this flight took place and because I think I've seen a story that talked about it after he and he got some Sim time before the well that's smart too that smart too. So his bio at FAA website says. A former Delta director global flight operations or Senior Vice President of flight operations for Delta Airlines. flew fluid line operations as as three twenty captain and previously flew the seven, two, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, five, seven, and seven, six seven. What that tells me as he never made captain on the seven three but he was a captain on the twenty Okay so So anyways, I like this story I think you know I mean it's it's smart marketing it's you know and it's kind of play pleasure I don't know what's the right word is but that we have an administrator who actually can fly airplanes, which is not always the case not always occurred and so so you know I I of got a little warm fuzzy about. starring. In. The best way I mean that. Going there. Okay well, we're will you go JEB. What do you think about this or dude? I was a pure pr stat. Of course it's a PR stunt, but you know I mean, it's a good pr stunned had done well, and and and it's not. You know I know it's a PR stunt, but it's not cynical PR stunt. They're trying to revive this airplane which. I don't disagree with that. and. There's so much to say but. Yeah one of the things that I caught and the aftermath. Is that. He still wouldn't sign off on the airplane. We're not quite ready yet. Well, then what was the purpose of the stunt? Timing may have been wrong, right? That's an interesting point. Now, fly it, fly the day before the day of you give it its walking papers give it. It's it's airworthiness certificate back you know Hey, I just flew the airplane is great here I'm signing the paperwork now. Yeah. Well, that kind of thing. So it looks a little phony to you know it's kind of like a well. I'm not sure which is looks phonier be honest weeping. So. David what do you think about the administrator flying the airplane? Well, I. Think it was Absolutely necessary I off. A long time ago in this saga has been going on for what? Eighteen months coming up on two years since the first crashes. That's true and. Longtime ago the administrators said that He would himself fly the airplane before it was returned to approve for return to service so From the perspective of promise made promise. Kept he fulfilled a promise? At a good thing. Was it a publicity stunt? Absolutely unless the guy was. There to do some data taking for the return to service flight tests but it was a good pr stunt. It it has some some value in that. Here's a guy who really knows the business knows his way around the cockpit. Getting some time in an airplane, it's had a troubled history. Did that, get it to the point of coming back to service no. There's still a lot that the FAA wants to get clear on and they are also working with other regulators from other countries who have grounded the airplane themselves Canada, the European Union. Brazil. There's a lot. The kind of go into this return to service enters a lot of stuff steak and I think the last thing any of these airworthiness authorities WanNa have happened is. Say Yep Yep we're good to go. You can start putting them back into service, which is problematic, and there's going to be a whole lot of pilots going to need to be brought up to speed in a recurrent training for them. Before that happens but. To have some little glitch come along. Right after you return it to service will doom this airplane forever I mean it's definitely going to be smooth no question Scott to be Smith I don't. Disagree with anything you, just said. except well, I would simply point out. that. I'm not sure that the return of the seven three is going to make or break any airlines It's GonNa make or break. Boeing. Yeah. But given the. Severe Downturn right in passenger demand over the last several months. and airlines have been doing fine making do with what they have. Be They've been retiring a number of aircraft or just parking them because the demand is not sufficient to keep them up and running it. All of a sudden. Now, we're going to have a glut of I don't know how many hundreds of of seven thirty seven Max is that are ready to go again. Big. Whoop. WHO's going to be flying.
Dallas-based Southwest Airlines to stop blocking middle seats in December
"Airlines says it will no longer block the middle seat on planes starting December I leaving just Delta and Alaska keeping those seats empty. Here's Tom Costello. Southwest and Delta had been blocking middle seats to get passengers a few feet of social distance during the pandemic. But with new research suggesting it's safe to fly southwest says it will sell every available seat starting December. First American and united are already filling middle seats. Delta plans to do. So in the first half of next year, the facts are that it is a very safe environment. And with all of the filtering techniques with air wearing masks facing forward, is a very healthy environment. The entire industry is in crisis passenger volume down sixty five percent losing billions of dollars in the third quarter alone without more government help tens of thousands or furloughed south. West is now asking its unions to take pay cuts to avoid furloughs their
US airlines still piling up losses but say demand is rising
"Hi Mike Rossi reporting U. S. airlines are still piling up losses due to the downturn in air travel US airlines continue to bleed cash because of reduced travel due to the corona virus pandemic American Airlines reported Thursday a loss of two point four billion dollars in the third quarter Southwest Airlines reported it lost one point one six billion dollars the third quarter of the year is typically a strong period for air travel because it includes most of the summer vacation season added to earlier losses reported by delta and United the four largest US airlines have lost at least ten billion dollars in each of the last two quarters I might cross yeah
Boeing is discussing a new plane as it begins to emerge from 737 MAX crisis
"We're reporting that Boeing is gauging interest in a new jet in early stage conversations with possible buyers, the potential new design would carry between two hundred, two, hundred, fifty people somewhere between the troubled seven, three, seven Max and the seven eight, seven dreamliner. These are tough times for both companies that make the planes and those that fly. Then we'll get a better understanding as to the Challenges Airlines face and what you as a passenger can expect as more big US carriers released earnings today. Let's bring in Alison CIDER. She covers airlines for the Wall Street Journal Either Alison. Carre. How're you? Doing well Alison. Here's my question for you. When we hear the earnings calls today, correct me. If I'm wrong losses are inevitable and airlines are really worried about cash. We're going to hear from Southwest Airlines and American Airlines and really nobody is expecting. Anything Positive Delta and united reported last week in both reported huge losses, which really comes as no surprise just given. How much demand has been decimated by the pandemic and the biggest focus for airlines right now is just getting as much cash as possible and holding onto it. So the numbers that investors have been looking at our. Daily cash burn and try to figure out when that cash burn number is going to be zero and it seems like that won't be for a little while. So Ellison Airlines now have this task. If you will of trying to rewrite their next chapter under very challenging times, we just saw South West announced. It's going to operate out of Chicago O'hare and Bush intercontinental out of Houston in the past that would not have even been in the realm of discussion. Yes. So we're seeing southwest doing some really interesting things. It is in some ways sort of in better shape than some of its competitors and is taking advantage of. Airports that were one sort of congested and hard to get into now being easier to get into and you know South West has the capacity and they're making an opportunistic move and I think we're seeing a lot of airlines get creative with the roots. Isn't a lot of business travel right now so they're all focused a lot of people who are still flying, where do they want to go? So that's the beach shits national parks anywhere. You can be outside leisure destinations. So they're all kind of remaking their roots to accommodate that kind of demand. So other airlines are kind of trying different things and trying to capture whatever demand there is, and you'll try to adjust their networks would about the uncertainty about additional stimulus eight? How does this fit into the tough times? The airlines are already facing united in America and in particular had to go ahead and just let go of the thousands of workers. Because the the new stimulus hadn't been decided in. There was really no certainty about whether it will be when. So. You know the people most impacted by this are the employees. Thousands of them are on furlough. It's not clear if and when they'll be called back could be in a couple of months it could be if there's no stimulus a couple years. So you know that's really who's feeling this. The most airlines have said this next round of stimulus isn't really a matter of survival for them, but they want to have all. Their employees on so that they can be ready when there's a recovery can take a couple of months to get pilots especially, pilots trained you bring people back get them to go through training students, simulators, and I think what they want is you know when they see signs that demand is starting to come back they wanna be able to ramp up right away. So they think another stimulus for sort of helped them be healthier and more prepared. When a recovery comes ellison, we are seeing a bit of a rebound in passenger numbers. Still Airlines face a tremendous amount of uncertainty. What does this mean for someone who wants to fly in the future? The the passenger numbers that we've seen in the last couple of weeks US definitely seeing a slight but but real upward trend on Sunday over a million people went through the US airport security screening points, which is the highest since mid-march. So you know even more than in the summer, which is sort of the typical travel season but there's really no sense of a weather can really go up much more from here without a lot of business travel and without international borders being open in railway again. And it's also very clear. What's another wave of infections due to those numbers? You know if something like that will trigger more restrictions on travel that will sort of discourage people from flying again. So whether the numbers keep rising from, here's a real unknown for airlines. For passengers I think people flying right now you know depending on where you're flying booking. There are a lot of deals out there and I think you most experts including airline execs expect competition to be pretty fierce going forward with a smaller number of travelers. I think you can expect a lot of deals on fares and a lot of sales already seeing a lot of promotions right now so I think the expectation is this'll be a pretty low fare recovery for people who are wanting to travel

Billions of people are all already suffering from our failure to act. Climate Disruption due to our dated addiction to fossil fools. He's causing unprecedented wildfires more intense frequent cyclones, floods, droughts, and other weather extremes. Boksic air pollution is choking our major cities and harming our health. And bow diversity on landon season the growing pressure. No country's immune from the climate crisis. But in every country, it is the poorest and most vulnerable were hardest hit despite having lists to cause the problem.

The covid nineteen pandemic has laid bare the fundamental injustice inequality of our societies. Upheaval of these pandemic presents an opportunity to chart a new course when it can address every aspect of the climate crisis at on. Easterly shows that when we grab such moments we succeed. We can build a safer fairer more resilient worlds, but we need to move quickly. That is why I'm urging government. So take six climate positive actions to recover better together. Invest in Green, jobs. Not. allowed. Polluting Industries especially coal. And fossil fuel subsidies and the price on carbon. They climate risk into account in all financial and policy decisions work together in solidarity and most important leave. No one behind.

Cities and regions with the carbon footprint greater than the United States and companies with revenues of more than eleven point four, trillion US dollars. If now committee to net zero emissions by two, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. That's double. The number from when this initiative was launched at the Climate Action Summit in two, thousand, nine, nine. Likewise investors managing over four trillion dollars have joined the race to zero. This number also more than doubled since the initiative was first launched at the same time. But it is still necessary for governments to create the tax and regulatory frameworks that will further stimulate climate action by the private sector unions announced plans to cut its emissions at least fifty, five percent by twenty thirty and chief Clem neutrality by twenty. Fifty. And China as announced its intention to become carbon neutral before twenty sixty. And count on these and other mainly meters to present before cop twenty, six concrete plans and policies that will bring the world carbonaro throwing divide twenty-fifty.

We also need to see much greater efforts to build resilience in vulnerable countries which to cause climate change, but they are the worst impacts. In the coastal Delta's the islands of the Pacific and the billion and the islands such as the efficacy trial region, we must have people of that to climate impacts as they recover from covid. Nineteen. I call on developed countries to meet their commitment to mobilize one hundred billion US dollars ear for mitigation adaptation and resilience in developing countries. We must work to create the conditions needed for a massive mobilization of funds. Also from financial institutions and private investors, we must keep building climate ambition. On the fifth anniversary of the agreement in December leaders from government business and civil society will gather online to do just that. We need to kick start the race to the Glasgow Climate Conference in Twenty Twenty. One To those who have already joined the race. I. Applaud you. But they also asked you to the Mar and much faster.

How An Airline Worker Honors Fallen Military Members
"It's time now for story course Military Voices Initiative, which amplifies stories about service members and their families. Today. We'll hear from Brian McConnell. He's been an airline worker for almost four decades. Much of that time he's worked on the ramp. The area where aircraft refueled, boarded and loaded. But Taking on other responsibilities, ones that weren't in his original drop description. Ryan McConnell runs the Delta Honor Guard, a group of volunteers at the Atlanta airport who greet every plane that carries the remains of a fallen military member. That story. Cory sat down with his wife, Nora. To talk about it. How did you get involved with the honor Guard driving across the ramp? One day doing my job. I witnessed some guy's taking care of a fallen soldier, Hannah blue cart with all the logo's from all the military branches. And it should all gave some some gave all And I am and pull over and collect myself as I thought. It was just amazing that total strangers could take care of our military fallen. Can you tell me what you go through to honor these soldiers while the procedures are once I get a notification, I'll notify everybody on the Honor Guard. We have folks who come from all over the airport from the bag points from the gates from maintenance. And even the pilots group. Sometimes there's 20 of us there. Sometimes there's two of us there. But there's always at least someone to meet every fallen that comes into the Atlanta airport. We'll cover the casket with the flag. And as they brought out of the aircraft, the honor guard will march up with flags from each branch of the service. In which time I go to the escort, usually someone from their squadron. Present them with a card, a coin and a prayer to give to the next of kin. What makes you so dedicated to do what you do for all of these soldiers and their families? The number one reason is the right thing to do. These folks have made the ultimate sacrifice and the least we could do is take care of him. My father served 21 years in the air force with a tour of Vietnam. Course you know her son is active in the Air Force, and it's served two deployments to Afghanistan. And heaven forbid, if something ever happened to our son, I would hope that whoever's carrying for him went here for him with the love and respect. And the honor that I will care for their sons and daughters meeting You've always been a staunch supporter of me with the honor guard and I know sometimes it gets trying when you're sitting in the cell phone lot for three hours past my shift or coming in early. We're coming in on days off. But I have never watch. Heard you complain and ah Actually appreciate that. Some people say they have a calling in life. I guess I found mine. Although I have never served. I tell people this is my way of serving.

Delta CEO on what the airline industry needs to survive
"Is reporting a larger than expected $5.4 billion loss in the third quarter compared to a $1.5 billion profit in the same period last year. CEO at Bastion It's going to take some time you know into the spring early part of next year before we start to see Profits and as well as cash flow. Delta has taken steps to reassure passengers even as the company hemorrhages cash, pledging to block middle seats through at least early January. Even as most major airlines have returned to full capacity. Delta is generally regarded as one of the best run airlines in the world. And they reported a blockbuster loss even as they tried to reduce costs. What does this mean for the airline industry as a whole? You know, big picture. This means the airline industry really needs the bailout. NBC's Blaine
United Drops After Earnings
"But we started off with an earnings alert on united the airline lower the after hours session after reporting earnings. Let's get straight to fill a bow with details spill. Him, Melissa United. Losing one point eight billion dollars in the third quarter. That's not a surprise. Everybody knows what's been happening with the airline industry the numbers a little wider lost than many people were estimating a loss of eight dollars and sixteen cents a share. The estimate was for a loss of seven fifty, three revenue falling seventy eight percent coming in a little shy of expectations at two point four, eight, billion dollars the real metric everybody's focused on the daily cash burn. Now, just a point of reference. This is a company that. was losing fifty million dollars a day back at the end of March, when the pandemic accelerated, they brought it down to forty million dollars for a daily cash loss. In Q. Two, they bring it down to twenty, five, million, Q. Three, four, million of that by the way is debt in severance payments. So they're core daily cash burn comes down to twenty one, million dollars a day. Now in the earnings report, they do not give a break even date. So while we heard from Delta yesterday saying look, we think we're break even sometime. In the spring united is not addressing that in this earnings report though I suspect that we know that question's GonNa go up on the analyst. All tomorrow I suspect that united will likely give some guidance at that time it's liquidity nineteen point four, billion dollars more importantly Melissa. The company is stressing that it believes that has the cash on hand to get through this pandemic nobody know quite how long this pandemic will last how long it'll airlines will be down that a year and a half two years but united does believe that it's positioned. Well, coming out of the third quarter at least in terms of liquidity don't forget. We have an exclusive tomorrow morning on Squawk box you do not want to miss this Scott Kirby CEO of United Airlines you'll be talking to us not only about the numbers about the daily cash burn but also this question of what's the path to break even is, does it happen in the spring? Does it happen sooner than that? A lot of questions for him tomorrow morning Melissa fell had united before giving a break, even target like Delta had. I don't remember them giving a specific target I know that they were hoping to get close to break even by the end of the year. Frankly that's what every airline was pushing for. Let's get close to break even by the end of the year. So I wouldn't be surprised if they come out and they say look we now think it's GonNa be sometime in the spring or late first quarter second quarter that would not surprise me nor would it surprise any analyst either so it's not like this is news where people are saying, wait a second. We don't know when they're going to get back to break even. Looking, at the progression on the daily cash burn in how much it's coming down I think that's going to be one of the focus points of the analysts call tomorrow and I think you're gonNA, see Wall Street try to pin them down in terms of when they think they get the break even yeah. It seems like as soon as Delta said, we're GONNA push that out it sort of opened the door for the other airlines to do the same. Fell thank you. We'll be listening for that interview tomorrow. I'm squawk box Phillips

Joined Cook on stage from a safe social distance. What did you think of that will get into the the phones themselves in a second. But what did you think of the five G. Messaging that was coming out of apple yesterday? Oh, it was amazing messaging if only it were as accurate as the hype was making it out to be. I take it was. So my headline on this Chris is that this is an amazing announcement for a lot of people but not necessarily apple the five here's the problem with five G. News if you put cardboard in front of a millimeter wave five. Device, than that five G. Device is essentially it is stopped from doing any kind of five G. broadcasting the it's not that apple has done anything bad here it's that they're touting five G.. In a way that makes you believe that as long as you have a phone that says, five G, you're going to get five G. speeds. That's just frankly not true. The real thing that has to happen here. Is there has to be a massive bill out of the network. So Verizon being on stage. That's a good thing. Would it tells me is that very likely The first. The first network that's going to make your you know iphone twelve five G. compliant device work like an actual close to five G. device is probably going to be horizon although that's really going to depend on where you're located if you're in a big city like New York San. Francisco, odds are you're probably going to get that kind of connectivity a lot sooner but millimeter wave is a funky technology that we we could go under the hood on it and I'm not going to unless you ask me about it I have not. I didn't think so but the bottom line here is. If you're buying this phone because you believe it's going to give you five G. please don't. In terms of the phones themselves you know there have been events in the past where apple has come out in the fall they've unveiled the latest and greatest iphone. and to my untrained I sort of look at it and they're always new features. But I in the past, a lot of times I have. Looked at whatever is the newest version of the IPHONE and I thought to myself. Well, this is probably going to be something that the apple enthusiasts are going to rush out to buy right. That was not the case this time actually with the phones that they had I i. looked at the mini, which is the least expensive of them and I looked at that and I thought boy I bet I some people who are price conscious or just. Don't want a larger phone I think that is going to appeal to them, and then in terms of the pro and the pro. Max. I think that's going to appeal to media professionals. So I see this as I'm not saying that this is going to be the most successful. event. In terms of new sales yet but I see the targeting that they're doing and I think it could be particularly with the mini. I think you're right because here's the thing I have a what is it now four year old apple iphone se I think where this really wins for apple if it really wins but let's say you're right and I think you've got a I think you're thinking right about this. Chris Apple is betting on that I phone twelve many to be kind of like the upgrade path maybe skip a generation upgrade path for somebody who has like an. Se if they can get you into a six ninety nine phone from where you were at an iphone or let's say at like an iphone eight or even czar. They, win they win. They do not need to sell very many of these iphone twelve maxes, which is like it's got so many superlatives in it. It's like its own sporting event. mean, it really is. It's something but the mini is a is a really interesting device and didn't find it interesting that when you cut between. So you have the iphone twelve, you have the iphone twelve many and those are six, ninety, nine, hundred, ninety, nine. Then you have the iphone twelve pro and the iphone twelve pro Max and those there's one hundred dollars like nine, ninety nine. and. Ten, ninety nine. But what's interesting is there's three hundred dollar Delta between the two and it's not the five G. stuff. Basically, it's the screen and the camera, and so for the vast basically apple has told you is that our mainstream product is basically this many like just by the mini and we're going to be happy and you know who super happy about that Taiwan semiconductor. Because they're going to be making all of those chips this fourteen bionic they have just loaded up the other people who are the other one who's really happy about this sort of applauding in the background is Jensen Wong, this of invidia because he's looking at a forty billion dollar bet on arm chips and apple is the biggest producer of arm chips in the world. So you gotta figure he's backstage just like whooping it up because this is millions of new arm chips that are going to into those phones. Last thing, and then we'll move on. You know what we did not see yesterday from apple a foldable phoned Not, that I thought they were gonNA come out with a foldable phone I'd. I'm just I'm I've never really seen it with with what Samsung is trying to do there. But you know who knows what the new generation though would've definitely would have made Tim Cook's new generation comment valid. Absolutely.

"Is V Star Trek Picard Twenty three nine, thousand nine uniform I like that it still is reminiscent of the TNG era, but it also has some differences instead of the pips being on the collar there the breast plate area of the shirt. So they're a little more prominent, a little more visible. I like that the the Delta symbol is more of a gray or a silver then gold and I just like the coloring is a little different from the T and G era and I I really liked those for the short time we saw them in Star Trek Picard and that is one of them that I do have heather.

So, one of the things I wanNA point out like especially since we're talking about uniforms that I love that done with particularly discovery and the uniforms on the enterprise is that instead of having pips, they've translated that into their uniform. So like their rank can be shown by lake with the discovery uniform, it's kind of like the amount of stripes on their shoulders. As. Well, as the like I, think it has to do with There Delta Badge to. But then also in lake enterprise uniform is like their rank is done by like the stripes on the sleeves and. That is one hundred percent from the navy. That is one hundred percent legit nautical uniforms with. On the on the sleeves. and. Something that. Really, makes each individual uniform stand out instead of just a general. And adding pips to it like it each uniform. Stands out depending on the character and their rank and everything like that and I think that's really cool and funny side note to that is that. I..

"Irish holograms Tom Paris and Harry Kim play Captain Photon. And Toco Tei he has a boxing. Training. program. Because that's what he likes to do. So for this episode Voyager ended up in a part of the Delta quadrant where they ended up in chaotic space. and was destroying them and destroying the ship and it was up Takata through the holographic boxing program to fight and communicate sort of with his opponent which was kid chaos who was supposed to be the representative of the aliens they encountered in chaotic space. Now I really enjoyed this episode one because I love to Khotan episodes, I think event, and for most of the Voyager I've said this I've always really liked the entire voyager cast and that includes Takata in I've always enjoyed. His episodes are also thought this episode had a really unique. Eerie. Almost suspense thriller atmosphere to it. That was really really cool. But apparently unbeknownst to me this is like one of the most unpopular star trek episodes heather. I had no idea 'cause I I remember really liking this episode back in the day and watching it recently I really liked it so I don't know. So I wanted to ask the question to you and you wrote something here in the show notes. What are some of the supposed? Episodes of star, Trek you enjoy. Well, you know I think my friend, Jim who runs the trek ranks podcast likes to call them guilty pleasures because he takes the stance that there's no unpopular episode of Star Trek everybody can find something they love in any episode of Star Trek and it doesn't really matter. What other people think? So I've had the opportunity to talk about. My guilty pleasure episodes from voyager and enterprise on his show before So when you pose this question to me, there was one in particular that jumped out in my head which I know pretty much is universally UNIN -joyed by a lot of the Star Trek Universe that I've never had an opportunity to talk about before, and that is the t os episode, which happens to be the series finale.

"They. Do have the prime directive How do you think they handled it? Voyager handle in comparison to the crew of the enterprise Do you think that they were better or worse? How do you would you compare them? And then I'm GONNA. Go back to something that you mentioned because I would love your your thoughts on the comparisons between these two. They were both on the far reaches of the unknown. So I think there's two answers to that question depending on how you look at it, but before I jump into the answers to the question. It just wanted to say that I I didn't have much experience with wager before I went into it, and so all I had really known about. It was stuff that I had heard around the Phantom. and. There was a lot of this sort of received wisdom about what's great, and what's not, and I found most of that completely irrelevant in my viewing experience I came to really enjoy wager, and loved a lot of the episodes and I. Even love the Wada. Things that I was told I wasn't supposed to love like I thought the character of kiss was great I thought that. With Doctor You Yes she she was just wonderful with the doctor and every scene between them was really just quite glorious a Neil. I founded the white enter a revelation, and I have no tolerance whatsoever for the helix. Haters out there I i. don't know what they're about. I think I. Think everybody should be so lucky to have a friend like. he's, he's just great, so, but I will say that one of the things about wager that I think frustrated ron more when he started working on the show. In one of the reasons that eventually left was because they made it story decision to not take their own premise too seriously. And so the the story that's told is that when they first started breaking episodes like Ron Moore was like okay. We need to keep track of how many photon torpedo and how many shuttle craft and how much food? They haven't then the the the power of like. We're not doing that. And so then you end up with these situations where there's like. Don torpedoes and infinite shuttle craft, and an infinite amounts of everything in the ship is restored new after getting beat the heck when we get to the next and it's they chose to do that because they just didn't want to be constrained by these things, and so what that led to that you see so many episodes where Jane would say something like we're going to hold true to our starfleet values, and that's GonNa. Get through this and the very next episode. She's like where the Delta quadrant. The normal rules don't apply you like you can't have it both ways. So it really was whatever the beads of the moment were is what they did, and they really chose to sort of sublimate a lot of that a lot of that. Quote Unquote. Hanan stuff. To to the story, they wanted to make it of an episodic show. Rather than try to service the ongoing art of you know how many photon torpedo is, aren't so that was just a choice that they made, and you can like it or not like it. I i. personally wish they had paid more attention to that, but I really enjoyed voyager for it. I think though that in the case of enterprise. You're dealing with a show where they don't have any of that stuff. Even at that level, they really are figuring things out as they're going along. And I think it's just I think it's just really wonderful. The the VULCANS are a little much early on and I apologize say calm down a little bit later, but the amount of to Paul snark ARY. Off The chart early on it's, it's really quite astonishing. I look forward to a little bit more calmer relations on board the annex at one in the coming seasons. Now speaking of relations. You mentioned earlier that Star Trek, enterprise was a show. That showed a little bit more skin that has been shown in star. Trek in previous incarnations of this has caused a lot of discussion and consternation amongst trekkies. I, personally really didn't notice this in the first airing of the show. I really didn't pick up on until. Seeing people mentioned it and re watching it again on net flicks. Heather. I'll ask you. Did you notice this? Did you pick up on this? Because? I kind of really didn't until we saw the relationship between to Paul and trip Tucker! Yeah I, it is something. I and it's not necessarily just the amount of skin that showed on enterprise, but it's really how. Her, especially how they approach their their women, characters There are a lot more. Either sexualize like to. Paul was or downplayed in the case of Hoshi. And there it's one of the things that really disappoints me about the show, because especially in its air date order coming after a series like voyager where you have a woman captain woman engineer. A woman asked Estra metrics officer. You know you have smart intelligent woman who are vital characters on the show, and then you go to enterprise where you have the token Volkan. WHO's over overly sexualize catsuits again? and really gets taught down a lot especially for being Volkan. Comparison to the rest of the humans, because the Vulcan human relationship, and then you have the other main female character on the show. Is. Really displayed at least in the first couple of seasons as very fearful and timid. It. It's really disappointing to me. so it's not just a lot of the the sexuality show, but it's almost like they went backward in how they dealt. especially with their women, characters and I don't know if it's something like they decided. It's a pretty cool, so it was okay to do that because. That's how women retreated in Teo s and this. Technically in the time line comes before T O S I don't still in the future. It is still. I I don't know if that was like. Berman and Braga's thought process when they went into designing show like that. I honestly don't know. I'm not sure if I really WANNA, know I not saying I don't like the show. I really do like enterprise. I love the fact that it's Prequel. I think it brings a lot to the star. Trek Universe to see this crew and how they dealt. With Mainly humans going out into galaxies for the first time. I think that's A..

"Bit of Tardy Gray. Is really a testament to how well written and how deep character he is, and I see season three. And I remember if you remember in the little teasers and trailers your remember that the the flag of the United Federation, of Planets. In the distant future. Doesn't have as many stars as it used to. And we've been given the idea that the federation is not as big as it once was imp distant future. I think that. All stem it's and his scientific knowledge of the sport drive, and all of this tar degrade DNA everything he's done with the my Celia Network. I, think he. Is going to play a major major major role in the return of the Federation as a major power in the future. I think he's going to do something whether it's the spore drive whether it's the my Celia network or some future scientific discovery that we haven't even figured out yet. He is going to do something really really big in season three. That is really going to make the federation a power in the galaxy again because I think he's the guy to do it. Yet Michael Burnham's The star, but more often than not. She's off doing her own and finding something out for herself. and. I think that it's pulse damage. That will be the guy that will do something really big in season three. And, he'll yell at Tilly. Tillie can be annoying. But Yeah I think that one he is going to do something really really big in season three, and yes, we did see the barrier gaze trope in the first season, but I'm fairly confident going forward with Star Trek Discovery. Dr Kohler Huber and standards will be just fine I. Think they're going to be okay. I truly believe that. As you said Heather loves love. And when you look at those two and what they've been through they have been through sickness and health, and they even went through till death. Do US part, and they're still together so I think culprits. Damn, it's going to be okay. I believe that. Well as Wilson cruised loves to say gay love saved the universe, so their love is going to be okay and measure. There's the episode title. Let me write that down. Love Mushrooms Safety. That's that. Is The show title Happy Pride Month? But. Yeah, those are our predictions for Paul. Standards Oh. Let's just say it now, heather. What should we do for next episode? Which one? which character from discovery should do? Burnham. We've done Seru now. We've done pulse NAM. I'm leaning towards George Oh. If you're okay with that. Yeah I'm okay with that. All right next week it will be. Michelle Ios, Emperor Philip Georgia and Some predictions for her on the next episode now with upcoming business. This is the part where we talk about stuff that maybe a little bit further down the line. In the Star Trek right now. Star Trek. Season one is in the CAN, but there was a much talked about moment in the season one finale. In the last seed of Star Trek Card, where we saw seven of nine Jeri Ryan and Roffe. Played, by the Amazing Michelle Hurd holding hands at a table. And look like they were playing a game or something holding hands, and this caused a lot of discussion. And Jerry Ryan recently confirmed on twitter. That seven of nine is bisexual. and this guy, a lot of people talking about what the future might hold for seven of nine and Roffe. heather. How did you feel one about seeing that scene in Picard? To Jerry Ryan, confirming the seven of nine is bisexual and three. What what do you see for the two of them going forward? I I. Loved that scene I and I mean it's just such a tiny little thing, but it's something that I picked out right away when I was watching that episode number like Oh, my gosh. It's amazing. It, it's really seven. Being an Jerry, confirming that seven is bisexual. It makes me feel so good inside to be honest, and I am been a big supporter of the fact that seven being bisexual card is natural. It's not something that came out of nowhere. It it's something that seven as a character, when on her own identity journey, which we didn't see because there have been twenty plus years since we lost Saul her on Voyager, and when we first met seven, she was disconnected from the Board for the very first time. Since before she was a little child, so she never had the opportunity to go on her own relationship, journey and understand. What she would sort of identity she was and she she was finding her own identity, and yes, in voyager we saw her. have relationships with men. We saw her go on dates with other men We saw her in a relationship with TOCO TO A. But that doesn't mean. That she can't love women as well. Because when you look at it as she never got to go through the pubescent experience of. Being a teenager or high schooler and Just having all those hormones and not knowing which way they go from here or there. So she doing this as an adult. And yes, when we first meet her is. She has relationships with men, but somewhere between where we left her on Voyager, and where we meet her on Picard, she has gone on this identity journey, and she realizes that she loves women just as much as she can love men. And I, it it. It's not something that comes out of nowhere because it's a journey that a lot of bisexual. have. BEEN, on! So. It's something that we can relate to. And when people online, who is the third going? Why didn't they mentioned Kota and she always liked men. Why does she just like women now? Hold on, don't have to. Question, did you actually see that out there? Yeah Yeah I mean I. I've really got into it with a few people who were very adamant. Because? Takata wasn't brought up at all in picard that seven's identity as bisexual, and Picard is invalid in. It's not the same character that they knew. And it's. It was really hurtful to me. To See people say that, because even when I'm trying to talk to them as a bisexual woman as someone who has been on that journey, who has only dated then I've never dated a woman, but that doesn't make me any less bisexual because I can tell you right now I. Find Women Attractive I've just never been on a date with one. And it it's it's hurtful to see people who. Just clean that that that's not a thing. Is like they're looking at your own identity and going here in Hunt Valley because you can sit there and say you like women, but you've never been on a date with a woman. and. Seven, only been in relationships with man, so her going on a date with a woman isn't valid right now because I. don't believe it. It, it's I. saw many comments like that and. It it. It really struck a chord with me. Because I related to seven journey. and to see people invalidating. Her character's journey just because they couldn't relate to it. Is Part of the issue when we talk about. Queer representation, and that's what I. That's what my start swearing at people. For the new listeners, since this is the that new wage of Star Trek I'm the one that's not afraid to swear, so yeah, the the idea that this was happening, I it really is. Antithetical. To, what Star Trek has shown us for years and years and years It reminds me of the episode of the next generation where vader the enterprise a met the aliens that were genderless, and we'll writer Had something with one of them where he he was attracted to this alien, but also at the same time realized it was genderless, and it wasn't exactly on the. At the time, the gender binary that we know and he was open about okay I might mess this up a little bit, but it doesn't make you any less valid but i. want you to know that I'm trying. And it's kind of strange to me. That, this would cause that kind of reaction within star Trek fans, because it's always been about the things that we may not necessarily understand and trying to understand them better. Jerry Ryan confirming that seven of nine is bisexual was. Good enough for me Yeah! We saw her relationship with Chico Tei on Boyer. Who's to say that. Liking women is something that any of us that. Have that certain preference wouldn't change in twenty years. WHO's to say? And I really don't understand why. Someone would have a problem with that it's..

"Heather I think that given the deck symbian given every. I feel like there's a ton we could explore with essary. How did you feel about her? I definitely feel like there was a lot to explore with Ezra and like I said I I really enjoyed her as a character a lot more than Because one of the things she really struggled with without Blake you saw, and I talked about earlier about how jet Zia went through the training, and this was the identity that she chose for herself because she she wanted to be a joined trill as we didn't have that opportunity, she really got thrown into the situation where. Is She had to take the symbiosis in order to save its. otherwise DAX would have died an all of the memories of the Six hosts that came before her would have died along with him, so is she? Really got put between a rock and a hard place, and she ultimately saved. The symbiosis life by joining with, but then she goes through a process of really having to discover who she is now that she's a join trill rather than who she was beforehand. When she was enjoying and just a regular person. Working on being a counselor, On a starship, having no interest whatsoever in having a symbiotic with. Multitudes of other hosts memories inside of her. So that's one of the things including a former husband that was right there on the station. Definitely, so that's one of the things I really appreciate about as journey. Is that her? Her entire journey through season seven is kind of finding out who she is now. With as as redacted set, of Ezra, Teagan and like you see her go through the process of dealing with the different memories, and not knowing where they came from, and like them, putting these rectal Gino in front of her, her being like Oh this is disgusting. I don't like reacted Gino drinking it. Dealing with And feelings towards warf and realizing that ultimately, not her own. Feelings. That? They were coming from her former host and having to deal with that and and just sort of. Figuring out her own identity, and and that's. Like I talked about earlier when I started talking about Jesse the something. A lot of queer people go through is is finding their own identity. In the feelings that they have like I'm. Almost thirty three years old. And I didn't completely come out to myself. Really admit to myself that I was queer until I was thirty. So it. It's a journey that a lot of queer people can relate to that. They have all these feelings and they don't know what to do with them. And they have to figure out how that fits into them and their identity as a person, and as we really exemplifies that. and. We both agree that there's plenty of room to explore that beyond. Yes, nine a let's move into new business where we talk about things that are happening in be current star trek world whether it's Discovery Picard. Maybe even the J.J Abrams movies. We throw those in there, too, but right now we're gonNA talk about star. Trek, discovery, we're all. Excited for season three and on the podcast we've been doing sort of a character by character. Glimpse into what we think might happen for season. Three are our character predictions. Three Star Trek discovery in this episode coinciding with Pride Month theme is the guy that is a my favorite character in star trek discovery the scientist behind the spore drive Lieutenant Commander Pulse Damn it's. My favorite character in discovery, but heather I'm going to let you go first. We're talking about season three of discovery What are you seeing repulsed? Well standards is ironically also my favorite character in star trek discovery while. I I have never related to a character on such personal level as I have with. Stem it's there's so many different things about him that are. That I see in myself and. I want to see so much more One of the big things that I would love to see in season. Three is him. Dealing with his connection to the sport drive. And the my seal network and the abilities that having tar grade, DNA and himself gives him, and what makes him stand out from other people and how he can use them to help the ship in different situations, and you see 'em deal with that a lot in season one when he. Gets to the Mirror Universe and has to figure himself. Back out and he's. blacking out and seeing the two different universes. You don't really see a lot of that in season two. There's only one episode where his. Ability to. The different timelines Is used to help them. Get Out of that time. Vortex traps time bubble thing that Captain Pike. and. Ask Tyler were stuck in so I would love to see them for more of that side of stem. It's because I think that's an area where. He can excel. Just to. Really show off not just to his scientific stuff, but but show off the different abilities that he has as a person now because he possesses tar degrade DNA. Other than that I. Think Him and colder it deserves. A nice loving happy relationship. But I, wish that for everyone on discovery and have a quite happened yet. We're GONNA get there eventually. Just want them all to be happy. but yeah, the that's my I wouldn't necessarily call it a pre predictions because i. Not Quite sure where where they're headed with him in season three, but that's what I would love to see. I definitely have an idea. I think I really do. And I'm to really deep dive here because. As I've said pulse damage is my favorite character in discovery I think his personality is one that I really really connect with his story arc over just the two seasons of discovery is absolutely phenomenal. I think he's had more depth and and. Character growth in events happen to him in two seasons of Star Trek discovery the I think I've seen for maybe any star trek character. He's been through a lot in two seasons and come out of it. In one piece with a little bit of Tardy Gray. Is really a testament to how well written and how deep character he is, and I see season three..

So the series of the ninety s as well as the sixties today in old business, we are going to be talking about a certain character who also resides on deep space nine with us on the promenade. Her name is Jesse Dax well, not just. because. We're going to be talking about DAX in general. DAX is kind of the epitome of pure representation on Star Trek before star trek discovery. So. Sorry caught me. there. Was No problem then taking command. I. Guess I was trying to be an ally. And letting you take this episode since it is pride month, and this is your idea, but yeah like Heather said Jazzy decks of the operations officer on ds nine Benjamin Cisco's old friend. The trill joined trill that has lived seven lifetime's some with men some with women, and if you remember from the what we left behind documentary, our bear made a point to. To say that in regards to DAX. He wanted to bring up the issues of gender identity and sexuality through jet Zia on ds nine and I will ask you heather. You feel about how they did with the nine. And what are some of the things about decks regarding queer issues that that stood out to you particularly I think. One of the biggest things about DAX and trill in general is really their identity. That's something that a lot of queer people can relate to is kind of how to find the identity of themselves, and that's something that a lot of trill or at least join trill. Have to do in order to deal with the symbiosis. Their past lives, and all the memories that they carry with them is that they still have to find their own identity, and where they stand, and a Dachsie is really a shining example of that Because at least when you look at judge via. She had to go through the training. She actually did it twice because she got washed out the first time. and decided that this this was the identity for her, and so she believed in that enough to go back through the training to finally be joined. And you see like one of the episodes I watched leading up to knowing talk about this is. facets where she gets to actually meet all the other DAX hosts. During the trill! Ceremony. And so you see how like just little things from different hosts. imprint on her identity and how she carries herself. But then also how? After, she's become join. All all these host memories are part of her, and so it it feels like she's missing something without them and I think that's one of the. Big reasons why people can really relate to DAX as a whole. Because they understand that identity journey, and what it feels like to not completely feel whole because you're not living, you're true life. You're keeping a part of yourself from people because you don't want to be rejected or you don't want to be misunderstood. So The that's one of the the big ways the the the more subtle ways why DAX as a character relates to acquire representation I mean you can talk about the obvious one which is that? I'm GonNa Blink on her name but DAX's former wife con. I've believe a believer in the. Last name was con. That was episode seventy eight of nine rejoined where jet Zia now in the jets Zia host for the Jackson Beate, a ran into a past lover of one of the hosts, Lenora Con-, that's who it was. an are condos one of. One of Kerr's on's old flames curbs on. No, no, no. Not Curbs on Tobin. Toby Toby thank fault okay? It! It was the pilot who died in a crash unexpectedly was. Her former husband, the narcotic husband. And so open was a man. And now jazzy Jessia is a woman. And it was specifically said that one of the things in society is that joined trill in new house are not allowed to interact with people from lives of past house that that was a big rule in Trill, society and on this episode. Spoiler alert everybody. DAX broke some rules. Always the rule breaker old man. but yeah heather. We were just going to talk about this episode. rejoined. I'm guessing you wanted to bring this episode up, so I'll let you cover it. I I mean. Yeah, it's definitely like I, said I talked about the more subtle ways. Were taxes clear representation? This one is obviously not so subtle. It's the very first. Same Sex kiss on Star Trek. Between Lenora Khan and judge the tax, and it's really an important moment especially for time that it aired. I mean at aired during the nineties where that's queer representation wasn't as prominent on TV as it is nowadays so to see. A mainstream show like star trek be willing to fully go there and show the two women even though she used to be a man, still have the same feelings for and. For each other, and it's just an ultimate representation of the fact that love is love. Love doesn't hold a boundary on gender It doesn't matter whether it's a man and a woman. Or both a man and a man or woman or Alien We're talking. Or klingon considering we're talking about Star Trek here love is love, and this is the one true example. As much as people can sit there, and theorize about also, it's of head canons between different Star Trek character isn't whether they're really queer or not. This is the one should example that jed the. As a whole was definitely a queer person. and. That's okay, even though she broke so many rules when it comes to trail society that still okay. It together old man. Is She. In this episode, she considers literally giving up her entire career just to be. With this woman and I think that's. Really a powerful choice because that's also something. That! A lot of people have to consider in their lifetime whether you're in a heterosexual relationship or not, sometimes you have to choose between a career and a relationship and. It's a hard choice. It really is because. There is. You really have to sit there and figure out. How much that love really means to you and it. It's something that a lot of people can relate to and I don't fall judge for. Choosing her career ultimately. But it a powerful episode. It's one that a lot of people turn to especially when they look at at at Dax and how. She's impacted them. And it, it's a shining moment in star trek especially in the Rick Berman era where. Queer Representation. Could have should have shown up a lot more, and this is the one example where it did actually breakthrough so. and that's fantastic. It really is. As, we know Jet Zia. Did find love. In Lieutenant Commander Warf as he arrived on ds nine they eventually got married. But Jet Zia was lost in the dominion. War and later on a during the Dominion War Jazzy had died the deck Symbian was transferred to as Teagan. someone who was trilled. Trained and ready to be joined at the time. I've said on previous episodes I. I'm a big as redecked guy. I would love to see in newer incarnations of Star Trek to see a return of Ezra Dax, pink nets, a character that only got one season, and there's a ton you can explore with that..

"To eat them. Pack as early on as many people know Leonard Nimoy set such a standard playing that character and Zachary. Quinto did a really good job with the movies but to many people. Leonard Nimoy is and always will be. Spock deservedly so and for Ethan Peck to have gotten the positive response that he has playing spock. I think that shows that Star Trek fans while on one hand yes. They're kind of running away from discovery. let's admit that it's it's pretty transparent. How many of them don't like discovery at the same time? They're not doing the thing that I expected them to do. In saying that even pack isn't spock. Or or it's it's ruining the the memory of Leonard Nimoy or something like that and I actually think that's a really good and I'm glad to see what even packed will be able to do with character. A Yeah I mean even pack is incredible as Faulk and I had never seen him in anything outside of Discovery But when he was first cast and this is gonNA sound so weird but when he was first cast and I found out that he was Gregory. Peck's grandson unlike okay. This guy has got to be good. 'cause Gregory Peck is incredible He's one of my favorite old time actors when it comes to older movies from back in the day like way before I was born so and he even definitely lived up to that and more I think he he really did his homework. He's brought a lot to the character and I do look forward to seeing where he goes from here. I'm glad the fans have embraced him because the love for Leonard Nimoy across his fandom is just universal and so to really embrace a young guy like Ethan who's playing same character We shows the as much as we talked about some of the negative sides of Phantom earlier to embrace guy like Ethan. Who's planning such a legendary character? Who was originally played by such legendary actor in this fandom to really embrace ethan shows the positive side of this fan of greed? And everybody out there. If you're a enthusiast for podcasts I highly recommend you check out the well hosted by Anson and mountain and his friend Brennan Edges and a little while back. They actually did a really good two part episode with even pack where him in. Anson really talk a lot about blyth and acting and some really really good stuff. So if you're interested listen to the well at the well pod and that's a really good podcasts at checkout in an Anson is a really good podcast hoses well so that's another thing so generally here the prominent merchants. We're not as super duper hyped for strange new worlds as everyone else but you know it's okay. We're all right. We're going to watch it for sure we're GONNA watch it the I have no doubt the excitement's going to come. Once we have content. That will be able to see in Reno Watch it but right now we're in the level headed and man all right. Well let's wrap up with upcoming business Despite the pandemic it looks as though convention season is going to try and do its best to come back and conventions usually mean 'cause play and I've been working on a star. Trek costs play along. A couple of others Last year I went to colossal. Kind in Sandusky Ohio and I was In a little bit of background on Colossal Con- It is an anime convention. But it also has a very very very strong star trek contingent I found that out the first time I went there and I opted to get a star. Trek. 'cause play and at the time I was the only person there with a star trek discovery uniform and I stood out quite a bit because I was the only one. You saw a lot of the original series. You saw a lot of the next generation. You saw some Klingons but I was the only one with a discovery. 'cause play And now with conventions coming up in twenty twenty I'm working on putting together a read. Command twenty three ninety nine star. Trek costs play If you've watched star Trek Card you'll see the uniforms that will reicher wearing at the end of the series. The one that they're wearing starfleet headquarters the one that bears a sort of resemblance to the TNG uniform but it has different pips and they're in a different spot and the the delta symbol is different. It looks like the the future Delta symbol from some of the alternate time. Line stuff that they kept that. If you know it it's that one and I'm I'm excited except unfortunately they sent me a blue one but instead of a red one so. I had to reorder what I will be sending the twenty three ninety nine blue uniform to my co host. Here Miss Heather Heather. How about you aside from the One? I'm sending you A. What have you got for 'cause play right now? What what do you have in mind? Well I have also been working on a little 'cause played project of my own which I have In pieces that have been order that have been purchased. That are in the works to be purchased. But I'm doing something different because I have a couple of different star. Trek Uniforms T. O. S. Dress which every good woman star Trek Fan on. At least one you know everyone. The T. O s original theories every woman star Trek Fan. I know owns one minds. Blew through it's true but I also I'm running my sister. My sister has one. That's red for. I'll also ironically have a discovery era enterprise uniform must. I've been thinking about that one. I've really been thinking about that because I've been thanking I. It was either the twenty three ninety nine one or v Gold Discovery. Enterprise uniform I was I was weighing between those two. I went with at the time. I decided to go with the twenty three ninety nine uniform for the same reason I went with the discovery. Uniform is that I wanted to be the person that was Kinda I with the new uniform. The one that was most recent most fresh So I was debating recently with either getting the twenty three ninety nine picard uniform or the gold command uniform I was. I wasn't really sure. But you're going with the T. O. S. discovery slash. Strange new worlds. Uniform tell me why and of course what color. Well you know the discovery. I wanted I honestly. I just wanted to read one because I wanted to redshirt. No you can't have a redshirt would you around? You just need me around diverse. No so so. That's why I went with that one because I wanted a redshirt one plus honestly it was a matter of cost to because I would like to ultimately get a discovery uniform down the line but that one I only need to buy the top and I could buy my own pants for a lot cheaper but the uniform at the cost play. I've been working on right now. Putting pieces together is actually seven of nine from Star Trek Card. Oh Crowell cool. Yeah Yeah it's it's something a little bit different from me because it's not a uniform and it actually requires prosthetics which I ordered off Ebay from a guy in England so they haven't arrived yet. 'cause international shipping is horrifying right. There yeah my my uniform still on the way I got my pips. I I did get the pips Have not gotten my Delta batch yet so yeah international shipping is a thing right now but I could have ordered from someplace in the US. But I chose the guy in England because not only did he have. Was He offering a versions of seven of nine's I- peace and the little piece that goes on her neck. Also the hand piece the hand implant so I was actually thinking about that when I was watching. Voyager in I was wondering I don't know if I missed it but was she still wearing that income card. Yes okay okay. I must have missed it then. So I have that ordered. And I have purchased some knee-high Brown leather boots which is like their. That's another thing. Women loves a good parable boots. Come on we love boots more than heels. Anyone who tells you differently is lying. A good woman loves a good pair of boots so I enjoyed the excuse to buy a pair of knee high brown leather boots. And the last thing I have to purchase as I found a website From a place in New York that screen Accurate replicas of leather jackets and one of the things. They offer is a replica of seven of nine jacket from Kearney. So that is the last of the list of things. I need to purchase Blood have the radio. I'm not even sure where to start when it comes to look into that. I don't have but actually actually we can talk about that offline. I might know somebody might know somebody. We can talk about that offline but yeah I'm excited about it because it late like we talked about earlier. I really love seven as a character but I'm not the type of I don't WANNA sound body shaming of myself but I'm not the type of person to go around wearing a catsuit so the idea of playing seven was never in the cards for me but then you look at her outfit in Picard. And I'll look at that went. Yeah that's bad as I could do that the end. I could feel confident wearing that. So I'm excited at the prospect of cost laying seven of nine. Now Yeah you totally should go for it. Absolutely I will probably I will probably get the strange new worlds costume and and get the lieutenant commander rank like I have with all of the other uniforms. I have. I don't know why I have this thing about the rank of Lieutenant Commander. I think that that match that rank is stuck with me. I think it's because the rank of Lieutenant Commander in Non Naval ranks is major. And obviously that goes really well with my last name. I don't know maybe it's because I'm not too old yet. I'm not old enough to be a captain. I don't think although I am thirty. Five and James Kirk was captain it thirty five so I don't know maybe I have something with Lieutenant Commander. I don't know why that's my rank for now. But yet like I said I will talk to you. Offline about the the gun that she had in talk to you about that and we'll do that off line so thank you all everybody for listening to this episode of the prominent merchants. Podcast is a good long star Trek. Talk wasn't it heather. Oh it definitely was and one more thing I want to add in there. Because you did your shoutout to the well podcast. We talked about voyager earlier. And if anyone is interested Garrett Wang and Robert macneil are hosting their own Voyager Rewatch podcast and those gentlemen. Who Play Harry Kim and Tom Perez us? So they're going through every episode of voyager once a week and really telling their insight on the episode in there. A lot of like Background detail as to what went into filming it because Robbie is a director So he had. He has really good insights when it comes to how things get filmed and Garrett has a lot of really interesting stories so if anyone is watching voyager wants to check that out it's called the Delta Flyers. I highly recommend it. There you go..
"delta" Discussed on Delta Juliet Mike Media
"They're just incredible. I I mean the the show took off when it came to their character development and the the stories that they came and just like dealing with the board to because I want to go back to what you mentioned because there are a lot of people who like to argue that voyager made the Borg. Look Week oh I completely disagree with that completely disagree. I think that they made the board look like a legit empire of death and destruction. I agree because I mean you get to see the board home quadrant and the wreckage that they've done throughout the Delta quadrant and their territory and awake before you just saw like they're small incursions in the Alpha quadrant the federation's territory. But now you see like this true empire that the board had built and when they say a few times across the series how the boring have assimilated literally billions and possibly trillions of people across the Delta quadrant. That is unbelievably high in number. Oh yeah and just like and especially when you hear a character like seven like even after he's been D- assimilated how she talks about the different things that the board of Don how they've run into different species end. How how they're classified and why they assimilated them for what technology or whatever I mean. It just really goes to put a bigger picture view. On what the Borg have really done at an what the collective have accomplished and I mean the just isn't things that seven herself have done with the board because like with their hive mind. She has knowledge of everything that the board is accomplished. So I really think that especially diving. Into the the board episodes at end the stories that they tell with them Really Make for interesting and unique storytelling that you don't get to see before even though they're a villain that we know it's still something a different side of them now. I want to go back to seven of nine just for a second because still a little bit of your thunder in. I'm going to say something. Maybe upset some people first then. I'll leave that to you a little bit later. That's a tease everybody. Seven of nine Let me start by saying I absolutely love Jerry riot as an actress. I think that whenever she gets really good material she knocks it out of the park. One hundred percent of the time however in the case of seven of nine I always thought she was a better character when she was out of her element. I did not much care for seven of nine. The extra drone to a point where I really didn't like her at all especially because in the first few seasons of voyager I really liked cats as a character But I think over time when the producers at Star Trek realized that Jerry Ryan was more than just I Canaan catsuit and was a very very very good actress. They started giving her a little more and and having her emotive more and show more of a character more of a personality and by the end of voyager where we started seeing her be more have more depth as a person beyond just being ex bore with this information available. I really think that she became a really good character. That Jerry Ryan did a lot with like I loved the episode where the Board Queen visited Saturn or. Was it the episode? Where seven started hearing voices of people that had been assimilated while she was a drone. And we got to see Jerry Ryan playing all of these different characters. And she absolutely nailed it Number two The episode I think in season seven where her and the doctor were abducted and they like had to switch bodies and everything and to see the doctor in sevens body and vice versa again. I think that was all a testament to how good of an actress Jeri Ryan really is I'm big on the Gerry Ryan hype train right now and. I'm glad that they expanded her character more than just being extra because for a while that got a little dry for me. I was not a big seven of nine fan and I'm glad she got better because I think Jerry Ryan deserved better and she shown it over and over again. Oh I definitely agree with that. I think I like to look at seven kind of because when when she was first introduced in and she was I. E assimilated It. It's almost like the the character itself was really a child like especially with her being assimilated to the poor. Get such a young age like she even though she is adult like she's a child and you got to watch her grow and develop throughout the later sees of seasons voyager and continue that into card and. I think that's the biggest gift you could ever give an actress like Jerry Ryan because she got to start with a blank slate and the character that wasn't designed to have any sort of personality or character ideals and then she is. The actress got to grow that character along that journey. And it says a lot about Jerry Ryan that she can portray seven like that and the amount of growth that she goes through and it says a lot about me behind the scenes crew voyager that they saw potential in her and gave her that opportunity because she she could have been a very one no character by and. I'm glad I'm glad they did. I want to talk about to other characters on voyager that I honestly feel like every character in voyager is underrated but I think that the two characters that I find to be. The most underrated are commodity Kobe. Who is maybe a bit one dimensional but.

"Rangers video game. That's what I want like if you give. Cbs or whomever a big triple a video game budget and have Jerry Ryan doing all of like the motion capture and voice work. You see in like a big video game. I will play that till the end of time. I want like a a single player action space ship Sifi Ferris Rangers Star Trek video game. And and I feel like that would be incredible Could it be a TV series? Absolutely but I really think what they've done is on top of a main star trek story with the main card storyline. They've put a lot of really good things under it that they'll be able to move forward with in. I think that was really well done. I think a lot of people are saying that they want to know more from these characters. They want to see more from this universe. They want to see more from what is happening in this timeline. And that's the best thing you can hope for with your first season is that you want that people wanna see more and I think card pretty much nailed it. I've really enjoyed the hell out of first season and I'm excited for when it comes back. I agree with you that one of the things kind of set out to do was get people excited about other characters and people wanting to know more because one of the things I've said like even before he's into discovery when people started clamoring about a Christopher Pike show as a you know the next live action show that they're actually going to confirm in. My opinion is going to be a spin off from Picard. It's GonNa take someone anyone doesn't I couldn't even begin to speculate. Which character is going to be your group of characters but I honestly think that they are planning in their ultimate scheme of things to have a spin off show from the series To help advance this universe forward so I'm looking forward to that I am. I just realized something that that I forgot for half a second. Even in episode eight nepenthes. Easy will reicher even said that he still on active reserve. Which really is just another seat to plant We've still never seen at least in television. We've still never seen the USS Titan. And I know a lot of people myself included want to see the US Titan and the idea of Reicher and Deanna. Troi being this husband. Wife Leads Star. Trek series is really really fun to me. I would love to see that I agree. I definitely agree in that. That's the so many different threads they could pick out of all this talk about feels good to talk about how many things are possible. There really is. I mean you can even look at the fact that for season two of Picard which is coming the. They did confirm that. That Patrick Stewart basically invited will be Goldberg to come back and guidance even to which is a whole mother Fred of possibilities. Bility's that we can see without excited for so and they've pretty much said all but officially that Georgia forge was part of a utopia plenty show on Mars. So it's entirely possible. He'll be there too so we might see Lavar Burton like honestly it. It's so cool that were in this age where there are so many different things that star trek could do and it really started with. Star Trek Discovery. Which is which is really amazing to save. Given how polarizing it was when it started and now it's opened up reopened up an entire universe of of a franchise worth of content But gotta say let's we're GONNA move into upcoming business and talk about discovery a little bit. I probably liked star trek discovery season one more than most and I thought it ended really really strong star Trek Discovery Season. Two was universally praised for more than just Captain Pike. I believe and season three a recently wrapped as the members of the casts have said. And it's a little weird I. I'm wondering where's that season. Three premiere date for Star Trek Discovery. Feel like we should have gotten a buy now. Don't you I? I think we should have gotten it by now to If you look at the production time between when the series wrapped and when the show premiered in season one season two with both like about a month not even a month So the season three raft the end of February. And we're now close to the end of March and we don't have a day and the one thing I've been seeing online. Is that a lot of the cast. Members are saying well they're still working on special effects and doing home now because the pandemic so it's going to take longer I don't know if that's a You know I didn't even think about that. Yeah I mean that's definitely cause delays but I think it is one of the things once sniff figure out how long it takes two to complete an episode. Like they can still figure out when they're going to premiere it because a lot of a lot of times with these shows like even they don't have to have the entire season completely finished by the time they premier as long as they can still work on it and they have everything finished by the time. Each episode airs isn't how Kinda felt that way with season one. Yeah if I remember. It felt like they were still maybe be in production or post production when season one started. That's the impression that I got exactly. And they had to be that way with season two two because I mean you can do raft at the end of December and then premiered on January the seventeenth. So that wasn't even like two weeks. They had to still be pros production for some of the later episodes things so I honestly had this theory in my head that instead of lake making some big announcement about the premier date for season three of discovery. They're just 'cause netflix started to do this with some of their shows. They just kind of announced like two weeks ahead of time. Oh the premier's coming in two weeks. I think they're going to do that with these three of discovery. Okay I have the ANC. Heather getting an. Yeah Yeah but I. I have this theory in my head. 'cause the season finale The card is next week. I think at the end of the season Finale Picard. We're going to get a new trailer attached to the end of the episode for season three in Discovery. And we're GONNA get day 'cause 'cause it does look cool season. Three does look cool. More where we're going way into the future and we're seeing the remnants of the federation. I'm I'm really intrigued by that. It just feels like there's they've got some really good writers doing some really interesting things with Star Trek and I'm really interested in that. Yeah it season three discoveries headed into all new territory. I I mean it's even farther in the future than what Picard is now so the the world and the Federation as we now at and the planet as we know it of the universe can be entirely different. The galaxy is their voice ter- and they can do what ever they want with it so I'm really excited to see where they went with it. And what happens and we're excited for all of you for listening to this podcast. Everybody like I said when we first started out. We're not going to go on too long.

It's it's night and day difference quite literally but it but I'd love to see something like this comeback and I feel like moving into talking about our hopes and wishes for twenty twenty. I'm just going to see if I can Stargate make it so. And just wish for a reboot. It's time global. Warming is real or doing when we done it. It's it's it's happening and I'd love to see Japan just Kinda come back out and say hey. Hey you know this is kind of an of a a small classic. 'cause this did relatively well in Japan if I remember like Merch and games and spin offs like there was a lot of stuff I'd like to see this. You know it'd be. It'd be kind of a fun way to fill out a show Joe roster that's pretty much being dominated it by sailor moon and card captors over the last three decades which is just say you know. They're fine. I just think you know there are more timely things to think about and so I just wanted to bring that up and say it's time for the year is Ni- let's do it. Come on Japan hell do it Kamiya Hamming if this were to happen I feel like there's only one person that would lead the DUB if if this were to get an English dub gratitude burke killing Ratatouille Lemberg to in the dump. They'd.

"A lot of people who have been following along Award Jack. It came right out of the stand A lot of people who know me or have been following along. No that Steven Universe is one of those things that I really love to return to to sort of flex my I guess critical muscles and just really pick apart. What a lot of modern animation tends to get wrong now that Steven Universe itself is over and his wrapped up with the movie it still carries over some of its bigger issues that were really evident in the later seasons where nobody and I mean Nobo- nobody in the Phantom liked it And just being on the cusp hospice that you know knowing friends who were there since the beginning and just kinda wanting to see this at end you know eventually like I'm just here to see this is end. I gotta say there have been more instances than not that. I have enjoyed an episode because Yes yes I think a lot of what you've said is right on the nose. They've been a lot more careful and low and a lot more I think conscientious of what they're putting in each episode. I still think that there's some things that need fixing and it's really not. It's something that I think that they're going to be able to do in Steven Universe itself but the first thing David eggs they gotta get longer run time. I think something nothing like Steven Universe Future. That is so intent on having slow moments of character reflection and development. It needs more time time. It needs moments like gravity falls had not to say needs to be one to one but grabby falls has some good moments where you establish the characters use tablets. Is there conflict. You see what they're going on about. You see them kind of internalized things over the course of the episode and it rolls in to something that snowballs and becomes the conflict of the episode. I think some good examples of this word. The Bluebird episode with the Final Confrontation Nation with Greg I think that that was a really good example but it needed a little bit more time. Some breathing room as it were I've mentioned this on my instagram. I am I think they could have really liked that for a couple of episodes even and kind of had like bluebird sort of wandering in the back you know. And and maybe a couple episodes later. The epic portrayal happens but it looks like that character might come back. They're sort of You know again like you say they plant some seeds and things like that another good one was the cat episode. I think just overall when they have it right again they nail everything when they have the gem action the moments of developing Stephen and his internal conflict and his feelings links towards the rest of the cast and his mother The animation has definitely been more consistent. There's been some people have noticed some things but everything so far has not been jarring and horrible like it used to be i. I feel like it could just be a little bit better. And the only reason I say this is because everybody everybody loves Steven Universe and I think when it comes to that you need to realize that you you gotta have someone who is sitting there saying that you know no. It's not that this show can do no wrong. It's that you know the better. It could be great. Oh it could do a lot of wrong and it has But at the end of the day I think my main main problem with it is The thing that carried over the worst is that the gems don't know how to really communicate. Sometimes there will be moments where they just act completely immature and childish and it can be played off for laughs but you start to wonder like you guys lizard thousands of years old and continually bring this up when it matters. Why haven't y'all talk to each other about about this? If it really bothers you that much Kim I throwing ideally bothers. Can I go to guys out there about that One and I'd always heard this a lot with Dr who They're aliens they're aliens so talking to humans is hard for them that would be me talking to each other and two number two Sure they are thousands of years old but on home world and in the Great Diamond Authority there was always a caste system and there was a hierarchy so maybe a only until recently thanks steven they never really. We need to talk to one another. Because of the hierarchy and the gem caste system. Everyone knew their place. Everyone knew their purpose which which is something they talked about which is why little homeschool exists. So maybe they just never had the opportunity to do do those things because it was just never needed until recently. That's a decent point But I think just if if you're talking about a trio as tightly knit as Garnet amethyst and Pearl it just every single time that they always draw this out like sense. The SARDONIC ARC. And I know that's going back to the original Steven Universe but they hit some moments like this in future as well where I just wonder like how hoke the fuck is this. Not come up for Y'all in discussion like even just casually like hey you know I really like when we use the start is but there's really no reason to do anymore anymore. Oh Yeah you're right maybe we just do some dentist you know just for funsies done solved again. I know that that's that example. But if they do now they're totally okay with it. I would be totally okay with that. If they do that for Sun Stone I love the Don. I think they need to do stuff like that. Because like episodes like ah yeah it was just like you really. You really need to talk and I know that part was mostly Stephen needs to be able to. You know talk about things like that and I do say David. I think you're spot on about the fact that this is finally kind of like hitting some pater for some good good good good lessons lessons to teach some youth to think. Hey Hey are you not taking carry yourself. She probably take care yourself issue. Get some damn therapy. I ended like and also yeah. You're fifteen you're sixteen. You're seventeen you're gonNA be going through a lot of changes and you're gonNA becoming in adult soon and he might not see some of your friends that you use to see much anymore. It's GonNa be tough but you're going I'M GONNA have to learn to live with it. Yeah just you know. I I see what they're trying to do for the most part and I really am just giving get the most chances that I can and I am going to see this through to the end I just feel like for the most part it ends up being a very disproportionate pushing a balancing act of okay. Now there's a lot of people talking about their feelings and you do realize you guys are super powerful rocks with magic powers you can solve your problems with okay. You can just talk a little bit because I gotTa say this David. I might sound like a little bit of a child. I'll here but If I make a story about super powerful character Earth's at can shape shift and do anything thing. I think I'm probably going to have them do that a lot. Because that would be fun and good to animate yeah. There is a budgetary standpoint of that. Never refuse to think that there's anyone who you know is maybe on the younger side of the Steven Universe demographic who's watching this going like. Oh Yeah Yeah I'm I'm down for this But you know that. That's that's more of a minor. Gripe I get that they're in an epilogue so it is a bit more con- conversational. The part of me just thinks every once in a while like you guys are powerful alien but then you get episodes like Stephen Tag. It ends up all right so you know I'm going to give it a B minus right now I'm GonNa give Steven Universe Future A. B. Minus. See me after class. We got some things to work out. But I'm rooting for you. And I think you can do better. I am giving Steven Universe Future. Abi I'm saying good work I feel like could by the end of the semester. You'll have it figured out and you'll be all right. I think we're in in for a good finale. Whatever whatever's going to happen of a finale that we can actually start seeing Yes they're actually planting seeds for for how about that. Can you please end end and well. I feel like you know there there were. There's some good points where they could've ended like Jean language virtue. Tom Seen In. Change your mind look you adventure tie It's like the the animated n sequence in. Change your mind I gotta say like it could have ended their absolute. I would have been happy. That is undeniably the best sequence in Steven Universe bar none but you know then the movie happened and that wrapped up things pretty well too. WHO and they said? Yeah we're GONNA keep going on with Steve Even Universe Shipton and Steven Doc Steven Universe guy it. I don't know I actually. That's a joke. I always say but I really would love to see Steven Universe Guy. You know maybe twenty thirty years down the line someone says you know. This should have been twenty. Two minutes should have been twenty two minute episodes and we should have Actually known what we were doing from the beginning and they can go in they. Can you know actually establish some stuff that can you know pretty it up a little bit. Make season for not look like such hot garbage edge.

"Was like. Oh yes Jesus yes we totally have gargoyles guys are bad. Sorry that was that was not on purpose. And that's kind of how I feel Gargoyles Justice League Avatar the the animated shows that can tell a story without it being Kooky wacky. We had that with thunder cats. We we had that with teen titans. Now we don't and let me preface this and saying I like teen titans go and and I'm a grown ass man in my thirties. I like team Tyco and go see the movie and was fine. It was it was but I do think that that we still have a market for action animation. That tells you a story. I definitely think it's still out there and seeing an thunder cats roar such as it is it just reminded me of how bummed I was that thunder cats In twenty eleven got cancelled the way it it did not just that just bumped me out aside from the fact that well once again. It kind of looks like Oh K. K. O. Two point. Oh Um I I gotTa Tell You David I think what cartoon network and you know this goes on to my favorite scapegoats show as well which I I think we might discuss a little bit. But cartoon network has ideas but then when it goes into SUV finally putting them into practice into fruition and completion execution. They're just not taking the right direction with any of their projects. I don't think you know you have something like adventure time which is just spread out and there's too much that you're trying to juggle in the air. There's too many characters. The Art Direction Literally Ruins Your House style for decades which shouldn't have because the the entire channel was you know one show after the next look completely different and you know the genre wasn't Kooky action adventure comedy all the time. Oh man you know moving moving forward into that I. I'd like to see you know with this. New Change in leadership see more more focused You know show runners. That may be. Don't just have. Hey I have this idea for the ending of season one with this one character but but I don't know how the four main cast are gonNA fully developed or if they've ever discussed any kind of conflicts at length and yes vegan about Steven Universe. So let's just jump in On gotTA everybody Jack my was still talk every now and then and one topic that kept coming up. We'll Steven Universe I think both jacket I have varying opinions On Steven Universe and I will say inbetween US doing the podcast. The Steven Universe movie came out and now we've entered Third Steven Universe Future. I really enjoyed the movie. I think that it tied up a lot of loose ends. It gave us a character in spinal that was obviously very popular. If you went to any conventions in two thousand nineteen and I thought the music was pretty league good overall maybe not. I'm decent and best. That has come out of that franchise but pretty good overall. I enjoyed it quite a process to The diamonds Andrew Sisters. Oh my gosh number because I gotta say It took me a minute to to realize that. That's what they were. You know taking a mosh because if it's not completely blatant with this show it can get really vague but the show is really good that stuff and then there are moments where it where Steven Universe is almost family guy. In how obvious it's references are ELA ned. I'm GONNA talk about. Yeah let's talk about it talk about Steven Universe Future I think you might have stronger opinions on Steven Universe future than I do but I will say that I am enjoying dare I say the crew at Steven Universe future doing something called foreshadowing towing and storytelling how that you don't see that much anymore in American annexation foreshadowing and storytelling and having a bit of a message message dare I say As we know with Steven Universe Future Stephen is now sixteen years old. He use seventeen now actually so so he. He's a young adult. He's growing up and I I think about the the kids who are growing up. WHO started watching Steven Universe when they were young and I really hope that they're watching this show and it is helping them with growing growing up because they're seeing Stephen go through these things where people are moving on with their lives? Relationships are changing and Stephen. Even in some ways is growing up himself he's running low homeschool The crystal gems aren't really kind of they're still trying trying to mom him a little bit and he's getting a little tired of it like hey I'm growing up. I'm seventeen I can. I can be my own man and in some ways and he still has has his relationship with his father episode. Stephen Tag was a great episode in the Hitomi of their comedy. Mixing exciting with their filler mixing with character moments in the eleven minute runtime just really really well and keeping some superpower gem action in there like they got everything they checked every check box I think possibly could but that it really hit home the the story points that I'm talking about. It's the one one of Stephen is growing up and everyone is dealing with moving on and growing up in in time in over the last few years like like we all do and also growing up isn't easy and Steven is having a hard time with that that has been the the arc that has been sprinkled throughout the show. That Stephen is having moments where he's having a hard time dealing he can deal at sometimes and he's okay but sometimes he's not and it's getting a little out of control well at times. I like the story that it looks like they're telling I don't want to give this crew and this show too much credit it but it looks like they are putting in things that What I criticised adventure time for? It looks as though Steven Universe future clearly has a plan of where they're going and I can respect that. I can see where it's going and I see the themes in I respect what they're trying to do so so far I'm giving Steven Universe of future thumbs up so far how about you jack. Well.

"To say so what you think of it you know. That's the big joke. That's the big punch line. Is You know I said all that I went in you know saying it might not be that bad and to its. Try to be fair David. It's it's really sad because the set designers the practical effects everything in terms of artistry. They were trying to shoot this. Well they did everything everything. It's got a strong can possibly could. Yeah star-studded Iain McKell everything. The cast is marvel movie strong. It is a WHO's Mu and say you know. Even though I have really strong opinions against her they got Taylor freaking swift to co write a song with android himself so there was a lot going into this. And it's so sad for this Judi dench and it sucks. I mean so the main thing is going into this the visual effects on the cast or not it finished we went into the monster cut because I have a cheap as theatre in town and in the same shot David. This isn't even Steven Universe levels of cut And the character is taller. This is in the continuous shot you are watching of these abominations dancing and making every impure thought you've ever had just recede. You'll never feel sexual again. You will become bay sexual watching this every moment that they move shoe on. No shoe is amazing which is amazing because the main thing that I heard from people watching this movie was the fact that it was completely horny any on main. These are some cornea stats. It's so horny but not good morning. It's not nothing. I can't think of a furry. Who would like this? It doesn't have anything anything that I've ever seen in any kind of anything. In the literal decade that for he is a dominant art scene on the Internet weather. I liked it or not. I can't see anything in those. You know examples in these cats. These are not cads. These are not furry is these are not an throws. They're just some kind of hell beast east made or harm you and make you feel really really uncomfortable about the actors that you once loved. I think I think the mcallen Alan puts it most perfectly when his character forlornly sings. The theater is not what it was and I gotTa say this movie make question Russian. This movie makes me question my belief that Idris Elba can do literally anything. Here's the deal David. People have have tried to make cats. You know emotion picture. There are many people right now who are dragging up concept art from the Steven Spielberg animated production of cats. What's that they were going to do? That was scrapped. And that stuff is damn good if you look at literally any artist anywhere on the Internet who in hasn't hasn't even a passing the interest in the musical. First of all most of us are going to acquiesce. Yeah it's really not that good doesn't really have a story it's whatever but it's really not for anyone but the actors offers you know that all these people signed up onto this because they were able to sing a song about themselves for three minutes and be really aggressively sexual and think that maybe the Mo cap will cover it up but no David. There's just so many messes I don't even know where to begin. Do you just even with the word that it will be getting a I guess. DLC UPDATE as they're calling coming in with with the with the look the visuals being worked on and retooled and fixed. Do you think it will be better. I I think it could be better But it won't change the overall content which I have to say. There's some stuff I mean like. I said the Mo the movement it's the motion or unnecessarily horny not not good Characters wear clothes although most cats are nude and the removal full of clothes which will inevitably happen makes them all the more naked. But David if you've ever looked at Production photos of cats. I can't can't imagine why you but you know if if you ever peruse on Google's like the costumes they have are fine they're obviously you know more more represent representational than actually you know meant to look like literal cats but I really feel like that's really the direction that you have to go and the the sad thing is the kind of do that for some of the characters that are wearing clothes. Clothes like Rebel Wilson's character. Looks like that for a brief moment. I'm and then she takes skin I think the You know the BIC witness Cat that sings memory Marie. which was melodramatic? Dramatic to the point of me. memes status you know as soon as it cued up just thinking to myself. Oh God I i WanNa Laugh so hard food. There's older distinguished jury audience. Were seriously you are witnessing the birth of a medium in real time. Yes I will I will I. I wish I could have been there in the audience when people were at the premiere joker watching Joaquin Phoenix say. Get it but you know I got. I got the constantly surprise. You know I I just. There's so many things I would change that. I don't think that it has a chance of being good but it has a chance of looking the better and all I can say is. It's it's just a shame that Hollywood's just so divided against itself of we should really try and appeal with a musical musical You know the musical lot audience Get their butts in seats. So we'll make everything practical will make everything really well shot and will really put our all into this but we gotta gotta get the normies in the seats. So let's put in some you know Mo- cab Gimmicky visual effects. That are really just GONNA get all those lion king two thousand nineteen fans in the seats like no. You don't have to do that because that seems that were thank you can just because yeah no one wanted that then and no one wants it and now the speaking of Cats David. There's some more ugly cats that are gracing my eyeballs these days. I just saw all this today and I wanted to say about it This new for all of the praise I laid upon cartoon network earlier in the show. They've had a few odds. And I WANNA talk about thunder cats roar. I saw this earlier today. It looks like it just broke it just premiered and the only thing that I could think of was all right well okay. Ko got cancelled put. It looks like everybody on. That show bounced bounced back pretty quickly. 'CAUSE Mama I'm not even on twitter and I remember seat or seeing a a joke. Poll that Ian Jones put up on his twitter of okay what okay. Ko Spin off at my pitching and I think the joke is just smoked. A thunder gets it. Looked like they all bounced back from O. K. K. O.. Pretty quickly because God. Damn oh ooh. That's that's rich that's really and it's so sad because David this is the year that we're finally free of a pretty interesting You Know Oh change of leadership in cartoon network were moving on from the individual who is responsible for introducing live action programming to the cartoon network so I had a good feeling about this upcoming decade for all C. N.. I was hoping maybe they could you. You know move past their proprietary house style that literally. Everything looks like sense adventure. Time and folks I'm GONNA say right. Now here's the T- adventure time is not out of defining decade. I mean y'all are GonNa say it is and it's most certainly is everywhere but it ain't that good. I know it apart eventually now fell apart. I think it could have been two or three different shows. Cut into pieces and reminds among Finn and Jake and tightly I feel like a different art stuff adventure time and this is something that I want to get into with thunder cats adventure time at its core was a show that could have been everything. Justice League was a the action show with story and character and heart and a beginning a middle and an end but it got. I got the impression an with adventure time that it. It didn't really expect to be as big as it was and for maybe the entirety. The of that show. They were really making things up as it went along and it just kind of never really put it together as well well as it could have been and that really brings me back to thunder cats. Go and I have an issue with it. Not just the whole modern modern cartoon network style. I hate to use this word because now it's become derogatory. The the CAL arts movement I I hate using that but it reminded me Jack deer a member in two thousand eleven. It got one season. The thunder cats action action animated series. Got Appropriately enough. A bit of a soft reboot from the original show from the eighties. It was the thunder cats and it was Wilfredo. The Voice Terry McGinnis from Batman beyond playing Leno. And it was. This was a show that was well animated. It was building story. It was building characters and H- Lo and behold in action animated show in America. That didn't always let's go back to. Its gags it was almost a straight dramatic action animated show which Joe Really don't see anymore your avatar plates straight. I believe it's probably one of the best comparisons and I can't recommend it enough to people who do you know are interested in good thunder cats content. Unfortunately it only got one season and and now we see thunder cats roar. And I'm saying to myself own my God. This is literally. They're doing exactly Klay the same thing they did with teen titans that they're doing with thunder cats. It's example everyone will forget. Power puff girls because has it was inferior in every conceivable way. And there's nothing noteworthy about it but yeah they keep doing this. It just keeps happening man and it almost seems like like vis version of thunder. Cats is more like teen titans go Because it looks like they're just going straight WACKY and I don't mind that in a lot of aspects aspects I think that's one thing where Got You just sent an slipped my mind okay. And their the time at not adventure time Where this show is going fully wacky where L. Thunder cats didn't and and yeah I I feel like the idea of doing a straight action show in America For animation has kind of been lost in the mainstream and that that really bugs me because I think it still can be done. Maybe with the advent of Netflix and Hulu and Disney plus that will become more of a thing but I always remember that the best shows for action shows that told the real stories where was their comedic relief. Yes of course but they were telling a real story We can all go all all the way back to the nineties. And I'll give you the prime example Gargoyles That that while Disney kind of forgets forgets it like in the original announcement for Disney plus They mentioned all the enemy animated shows that we're going to be there and then everyone reminded them. Hey Hey gargoyles. And then because the the Disney plus twitter account.

As a man of many projects six enemy podcasts of some sort has always kind of been my number one project Many moons ago I was at a website called called Ama three thousand dot Com and they asked me to host the eighty three K.. PODCAST for a little bit and I discovered a young man from northern California by the name of Jack and I said you know I think I want Jack to be my co-host and we did and we pressed on and we did the three K..

There's just no one else that you know has the same kind of levelheaded kind of discussion as we talk about nerdy things and it's just it's the best so I'm ready to to rush on in with that as I've said this is going to be what I think the beginning of really interesting decade in animation and nerd stuff in general. Because I mean let's face it folks as we have up said in the past listeners. Realize enemies pretty mainstream at this point. Lots of people celebrities parents loveless stuff. It's everywhere where it's inevitable. It is ubiquitous. And it's GonNa be really interesting to see it move forward but I have a feeling that will come up a lot As we discuss our talking points here David Yeah Just for everybody out there. Let's let's do a quick primer on you and I Jack Jack I am An anime fan now in my thirties. I was around for the the dark and Dank. Nineteen Nineties indies Hashtag nineties shout to the nineties. Kids out there I went through the to Nami era. And here I am today as well I grew up with nineties cartoons and I fell in love with anime Through a show that was on. UPN Then on Sunday Mornings Call Techno Man Aka Tech Aman Blade Nowadays now that I'm in old age as awesome might say For for the millennials. Older millennials I would say that I grew gravitated towards Saifi and Mecca anime My favorites are Arrigo proxy. From two thousand six. A sort of heavy philosophical atmospheric sci Fi anime Gundem double o uh of the entire gundem franchise which I enjoy just generally Is the two thousand seven Gundem Double-o and of course from two thousand one my my beloved Mexico Rosa von For all of you out there that love neon genesis. Evangeline Watch Rosza Fon. It's better period. That's not a not a hard bar to climb in my personal opinion but If you didn't know that You weren't listening being Apis but we're welcoming you back anyway. Welcome but you jack. Tell the fine folks about well I come from anime and You know kind of almost being a part of my life you know from the beginning. Because I'm a little bit younger than you. I'm head in my ladder You know part of my twenties here so things are kind of starting to Peter out for me and stuff like that. But I've always been looking looking for stuff that was kind of you know challenging and all that sort of thing. I bought a Manga and I honestly think that a lot of my favorite Britt stuff would classify closer to the Manga side of things. Like I love. The entire works of clamp You know some of them a little bit weird. But I think clamp specifically card art captors stuff like that is you know. Probably some of my favorite series and death note of course superior in the Manga version But on the anime side side of things I've always kind of enjoyed a mix of all sorts of stuff. Some weird you know Stylus L. Stuff for the sake of looking different your your heat guy J as that you know keep it really classic and tropy in the anime but also sort of do something unique on their own But you know my top three. I think I think that always stand the test of time. That always You know keep me routed into why I love. The medium are The stylish and action packed soul the leader. Which recently turned ten? That's always wild to think about Sayonara Zazi Boesak Bo Sensei which is also very very. Visually striking and quite possibly one of the most surreal and hilarious looks at mental illness in most media and full metal alchemist brotherhood. You know now I think that. Just it's it's basic choice but I think it's you know it's it will constantly stand the test of time it mold up against the borough toes. Does your opinion on the first full metal alchemist as well Decent pacing up until it breaks off from the from from the Manga. And then it's some really really weird fan fiction can't really vibe with you know if you like it that that's totally fine. It's just not really something that I couldn't hop on board with knowing how the Manga went but honestly I think my preferred viewing is watched the first series of until it breaks from the Manga. And then find where that you know cuts off and brotherhood and hop on there. If you can it's You know they've all got. They both got their strengths and weaknesses. I think because Z.. The pacing kind of leading up in Brotherhood is sort of like well. We've been here before. So let's do the speed run right and also one more thing. Everybody I forgot to mention. I also really like Star Trek a lot so star trek pops up on the podcast. It's because I really like Star Trek Abu Abbott moving on to the of some sort section of this podcast We are both big fans of not just anime but but animation as a medium as a whole so we're gonna take things westward For me like I said I grew up right at the peak peak of the to Nami era and I always felt like I was blessed to be a kid during the time where America got the DC. The animated universe starting with Batman the animated series moving to Superman and the new Batman Superman Adventures and eventually coming to the the masterpiece that was Justice League and Justice League unlimited. I Cartoon Network for me in my teens whereas Nickelodeon was more more for. When I was a kid I moved towards cartoon network? I'm not much of Disney Guy Folks. I moved more towards cartoon network as I grew the older and I feel like in the two thousands and into the twenty tens cartoon network was absolutely the place to be the they were a a world to be to allow creators. Just a giant playground where you would have a show that really inspired me as well like regular show and Just to give a little bit of Fan Service just to the nineties kid deep down Because I love sonic like the Hedgehog as some of you might remember. Do Love Me. Some sonic the adventures of sonic the Hedgehog. Yes I'm talking about. The afresh cartoon the syndicated cartoon not the Saturday morning. ABC Cartoon which was great it was just cut shorten ended far too soon but the adventures of sonic the Hedgehog the one that had the characters from sonic too and that was a bit more wacky goofy and cartoony that that really really appealed to my heart and also had Dr Robotic voiced by the late long John Baldry and he was fantastic. Fantastic for for everyone out there. That knows the I hate that. Hedgehog me Oh I just love that voice setter. That's that's where it comes from. He was the guy blue loosing singer yet and yes the adventures of the Hedgehog as well for my sonic the hedgehog. Sega Genesis. Nine indies kid soul Jack for the western side of the world of animation. Tell me some of yours well It's it's surprising I do have couple Disney properties on here. But I'm pretty new. I'm actually in the middle of writing an essay about why Disney is. It's always kind of been a bit of a pickle but You know I think that if you know me long enough you'll probably go You you know you'll you'll start to realize that one Recent cartoon comes up quite possibly more than almost all the others combined and that is the Disney Channel Series by Alex Hirsch gravity falls a brilliant mystery really exquisite. You know it always stood out to me among most of the modern animation Shen You know it stucked up to everything that they wanted to do with it and yes go ahead. I thought you were saying something I I I just find that You know returning to it. I always find you know more details and more things to appreciate about it. And it's so a perfectly captures that atmosphere of a lazy mystical somber. Where anything can happen? And you know if you haven't checked it out before if people haven't seven you know viciously recommended to you please check it out If you can maybe do so not on Disney. Plus because for some reason they decided that the is the mason symbol on stands Fez which is the central thing for the entirety of the plot. A lot of the story you know without getting too spoiler into it but that plays a role in the entirety of the series they just decided. Nah Nah it. Even it doesn't look anything like a mason sign. We got rid of it so you know how very fork over the You know then again Disney long before was who's long before for kids so yeah. Yeah Yeah like I said keep an eye out for that folks. You know I'll plug my social at the end of this but Disney is GonNa get edit but yeah they've got the DVD set out finally. And there's all kinds of extra because Alex Hirsch and the crew really really care about giving you what they know. Fans want that kind of thing on the cartoon network side of things you know there are a lot of tenders I think overall decades I think the amazing World Gumbo is a fantastic testament of twenty tens animation of what it could really really embody in with technological Strides and humor and everything. But I gotta say my favorite has always GonNa be the the nineties classic. The power of girls I think Craig mccracken You know he's a fantastic artist. Great Cartoon Visionary you know. He later on developed fosters Oscar's homogeneity friends also for C. N. and then hopped onto Disney to make the ill-fated wander over yonder. But you know always a pleasure to watch set stuff. It can be an exercise in euphoria frustration action that just pumps your Adrenalin and it. Surprisingly holds up with a lot of what I find find to be very important messages to pass onto all genders. Everybody think everyone everyone needs to kind of take the satire and the commentary with you know the biggest grains assault that you can just enjoy a very three beautiful stylized world that cartoon network I think is mostly like that kind of era. You know with that Iconic Gandhi Tarkovsky Hanna Barbera late nineties. Aesthetic I think that they've always kind of kept that edge in that energy in that brightness even you know moving for two thousand twenty tens And then hopping back into Disney real quick because I gotta just say even though they make their scripts even though they've really really gone my IRA and they're the reason I'm not on twitter right now. That is true. Look it up or talk to me if you need to. Dm Me There is something about Disney that I appreciate when they do it right and that is preserving historical excellence and the history three of animation. which they're pretty much a almost single handedly responsible for in the West apologies mesmerized Fleischer Look at quack attack. If you ever have the chance folks As of this recording it is still available to view on Youtube In full you know where to look and and it is basically an archive From the beginning of Walt Disney animation in the twenties. You know they're black and white cartoons up until all the shows release which was the mid nineties just all of their shorts everything they've ever done even some segments of stuff like fantasia made it in or make make music like just take a look folks if you have any sort of interest in the history of animation especially the best the cream of the crop of Disney's.
