Episode 225: Even More Picard The Syntaholics continue on in their quest to discover what may have lead Picard to leave Starfleet. A look into “The Defector” and “Offspring” may have proven useful, as they show a captain who both carefully contemplates federation rules and regulations while also challenging authority if he deems it necessary, and of course more Data. This week, continue the trek with Aaron and Holly, and for a more detailed discussion on The Offspring, look to Episode 119...

Episode 224: Pondering Picard... A TWOFER!

8/4/2019
More
Episode 224: Pondering Picard... A TWOFER! The mission this week is to discuss two episodes from TNG that have already been discussed in the past, because we believe they may ready us for what is to come. “The Measure of a Man” and “Who Watches the Watchers” are episodes that deal with Picards moral standings, his integrity, his dedication to his crew, and shows that he is willing to go toe-to-toe with the Federation if he feels it necessary. This is the third episode in a series of...

Episode 223: The Battle Picard… The final frontier... These are the Voyages of the Starship Synthahol. The second adventure in their new Mission: To explore the inner psyche of one Jean-Luc Picard… To look to the past; To predict the future… To inappropriately go where no one has gone before… Hah! Sorry, it had to be done. This week the gang discusses another Picard episode in hopes to re familiarize themselves with Jean-Luc before the premiere of Star Trek: Picard! “Battle” shows...

Episode 222: Where Silence has Lease This week Aaron and Holly chase their tails, much like Captain Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise in Where Silence takes Lease. This episode has us thinking about the observation, treatment, and judgment of others- and a lot of side chat that hopefully we managed to tack onto the end of this episode.

Episode 221: The Matrix Revolutions Spork, Detergent, and Dishwasher took a slightly different approach on this week's episode, but they still can’t seem to agree on what the F*** is actually going on with this story! The final Showdown isn’t Neo vs Smith this time it’s Spork vs Detergent who will win the ultimate showdown at the end of the third movie? Can the mighty Dishwasher help them settle their differences? The last three weeks we Jacked into the world of The Matrix, explored...

Episode 220: The Matrix Reloaded

More
Episode 220: The Matrix Reloaded This week the Synthaholics get Loaded, and no one can seem to agree whether there is a Matrix within a Matrix, or if Neo simply has a unique connection to the A.I who enslaved all of humanity. While there are far less rabbit holes in this episode, this weeks’ episode is a bit on the longer side -much like a few of the sequences in The Matrix Reloaded! This film is packed with action and intrigue and we are all looking forward to see what is next for Neo and...

Episode 219: The Matrix Follow the white rabbit… Just not the A.D.D ones! Hah.. the “Ones’”. David, Aaron, and Holly (or Detergent, Dishwasher, and Spork) find themselves outside of the Matrix this week, looking in on a world where Artificial Intelligence- or A.I, has enslaved the human race... but they’re most happy about it! ...Oblivious would be the correct term. If you’ve not seen “The Matrix” you have most definitely either heard reference to it or been privy to experiencing...

Episode 218: The Visitor

Episode 218: The Visitor David has returned this week and Holly gets to witness first hand the boys impressions of Ben and Jake’s relationship. All joking aside, The Visitor is a Deep Space Nine episode that covers death and coping with the loss of a parent, time travel, a stalker, a message about remembering to live your life, and then more death and time travel! We have a special clip for you this week, as David had the privilege of not only hosting a panel for Tony Todd at Nickel City...

More
Episode 217: Tuvix: A Botanical Catastrophe David is still recuperating from his frolicking on Pandora, so this week it’s just Aaron and Holly trying to wrap their heads around the Trolly Dilemma… sort of. Tuvix is a Voyager episode where Tuvok and Neelix are morphed into one being due to a breed of orchid being present in the transporter beam while the two are beaming back to the ship. There is much to chuckle about throughout this episode, even if it essentially ends in murder -”Give...

Episode 216: Avatar This week Aaron and Holly travel to Pandora. That’s right, the time to discuss James Cameron’s Avatar has come! David had to sit this one out after his Avatar contracted a rare STD from a fern, he is currently in quarantine. If you have yet to see Avatar or if you have no idea what it is, that’s okay, because we’re gonna tell you all about it! We also got a new teaser trailer for PICARD! Mmmmmm, anyone else want a bottle of wine from Chateau Picard? I kid, we...

Episode 215: Ice Pirates Aaron and Holly pull David into the strange not so new world of Ice Pirates. Last week after joking about space herpes we got to the film where a space herpe is actually a thing. Ice Pirates is a huge mish mash of ideas, sets, costumes from a wide array of genre all inserted into a strange science fiction world where water is so rare it is the only thing that has significant value. Water is stored as ice and therefor ice pirates search for ships to rob them of their...

Episode 214: The Menagerie Aaron is back this week with Holly and David to discuss both parts of The Menagerie the Star Trek Original series two part episode. With Captain Pike being all the rage after Star Trek Discovery’s second season we thought we would go back to where Spock decides to take after his sister and stage a mutiny. Spock does this to help his former captain live a better life since his unfortunate radiation bath he had on a Crossfield class starship filled with clueless...

Episode 210: Such Sweet Sorrow Discovery S2E13 Aaron, Holly, and David are all together to discuss Such Sweet Sorrow the second to last episode of the second season of Star Trek Discovery. Much like season one of Star Trek Discovery this episode does a lot to set up what will happen in the finale while withholding all the action for the finale.
