The Thanksgiving holiday is over and what a better way to celebrate Cyber Monday than a jam packed episode of The ‘Verse! - the best part, it comes to you with no ads, no coupons, at a special low price of FREE - as always. We continue our Doctor Who 60th Anniversary retrospective wrapping up series 2 (David Tennant’s first season). Whovians will love the look back at the 10th Doctor especially as he returns for the anniversary specials. Don’t worry we will be covering the specials in depth soon during our timey-whimey coverage of everything The Doctor including all 12 seasons predating the new specials and right into Ncuti Gatwa’s upcoming season. Hang tight our timeline may be a little wacky, but the conversations are timeless. We also give a full forty minutes to Disney+’s Marvel series Loki season two. Let’s just say there are numerous variants found in our opinions of the series. Finally (after the credits) we close out our coverage of Paramount+’s Star Trek: Lower Decks a series that just keeps getting better and better. What started as a quality Trek side dish has excelled to a must-see.

The 'Verse! Squad is back after a visit to earth to cover all things New York Comic. Four days of coverage totaling 100+ hours of everything from Star Trek to Futurama, For All Mankind, Buffy, Scott Pilgrim and more. We also head into the TARDIS (which smells of Dr. Pepper for some reason) to continue our DOCTOR WHO Retrospective - David Tennant's first season (series two) and finally close out AHSOKA too with a lively discussion. EPISODE 106 SHOW BREAKDOWN: 0:00 – Intro // 4:15 - ending AHSOKA // 39:43 – NEW YORK COMIC CON // 69:05 - DOCTOR WHO Series 2 Coverage part one // 90:00 – Contact Info // 92:35 – Post Credit - Hold that drink!
The squad blasts off to our favorite Star-iverses. First up is Star Wars to cover Ahsoka episode 6 and finally see some anxiously anticipated on-screen appearances. Tune in to hear what we loved, what we were wrong about in past theories, and what we’re manifesting for the finale. Next up is Star Trek to cover Lower Decks episodes 3-4 where we get to see how Boimler handles his first away mission as a leader (spoiler alert, it’s poorly), and meet Tendi’s family. Nothing brings a family together like a wedding! Follow us on Twitter and Instagram @TheVerseCast where we post news, announcements about the pod, and collect listener questions.  If you stick around after the credits, you might need something old, something new…you know the rest… SHOW BREAKDOWN: 0:00 – Intro // 1:27 - The ‘Verse!

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

The squad continues their coverage of Disney+’s Ahsoka, including that reveal and we once again all align around the indisputable fact that well, light sabers are cool. As are fezzes and Stetsons and fish fingers and custard…The rest of the squad will understand that reference soon enough because we’ve begun filling in our Doctor Who blindspot! Our resident Whovian Emilia (and Filmsnork behind the scenes!) invites the squad and audience to step into the TARDIS beginning with a retrospective on NuWho. We cover the must-see episodes of series one of the revived series with the 9th doctor, Christopher Eccleston.  To round out our tour of cinematic universes for this episode, we also revisit Star Trek: Lower Decks for the season four premiere. If you’re curious about Star Trek but don’t know where to start, the squad would prescribe a healthy dose of the animated series Lower Decks, plus Strange New Worlds, and then thank us in the morning! Follow us on Twitter @TheVerseCast (and on Instagram) where we post news, announcements about the pod, and collect listener questions. If you stick around after the credits, listen out for a faint whooshing… SHOW BREAKDOWN: 0:00 – Intro // 3:35 - STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS S4 // 12:25 - more AHSOKA // 38:00 – DOCTOR WHO Coverage // 83:35 – Contact Info // 85:35 – Post Credit - Where to go in the TARDIS
We begin our coverage of the latest Disney+ Star Wars series, Ahsoka, by discussing episodes 1-3. We have some big Clone Wars and Rebels fans on the squad, and Emilia’s here too. Tune in to hear us discuss the Star Wars context you need to know to watch Ahsoka, our favorite moments of the show so far, and how well we think the live action series translates from animation! We also revive our long-suffering news segment for this episode to catch up on some of the latest cinematic universe updates from the last few weeks. Follow us on Twitter @TheVerseCast where we post news, announcements about the pod, and collect listener questions. If you stick around after the credits, watch out for that puddle of rum in the kitchen…
The squad wraps up coverage of season two of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and yes, that includes the musical episode. We also cover the hotly anticipated Lower Decks crossover episode, the Emilia-named “PTSD episode,” and of course, the season finale. Tune in to hear our wide-ranging views on musical specials, cliffhangers, and more. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed this season and can’t wait for season three! In other news, the Squad finds a solution to their space-recession! Or at least, we thought we did… Follow us on Instagram & Twitter @TheVerseCast where we post news, announcements about the pod, and collect listener questions.

We're back! We have been MIA for a few weeks and have now returned to cover some great entertainment. Believe it or not, The 'Verse! squad has completed 100 standard full-length episodes. In addition, they have nearly 20 interview episodes which include conversations with many very talented (and cool) industry pros, the cast of The Boys, top showrunners, composers, writers, VFX teams, and more. It has been an exceptional run where we have not just discussed the best of TV and film, but also met some unique new friends along the way - robots, aliens, sentient doors, and more. If you have not listened yet we recommend you do. The 'Verse! covers many of the cinematic universes through in-depth reviews, previews, games and more. In addition, we explore those universes on our very own spaceship (to be named later) which often leads to us hosting exciting new visitors.You can think of it as a mix of Comic Con, Siskel & Ebert, MST3K, and Pee-Wee's Playhouse. While the show can often take some wacky tangents, the heart of The 'Verse! is our 4 hosts (Bridget, Norm, Emilia, and Lucas) who have passionate and entertaining discussions about a wide variety of franchise universes spanning Marvel, Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Boys, and much more. Give episode #100 a listen, and then for the fullest, most rewarding experience start from the beginning to hear how the show has evolved and grown.Let's get back to great entertainment, for this episode let's just say, this was…um... not it. The squad begrudgingly finishes covering Marvel’s Secret Invasion with episodes 4-6. (We came back from our summer hiatus for this??) We tried to love it, we really did. To be fair, we look forward to seeing Nick Fury in anything else going forward and congratulate the cast of Secret Invasion for doing the most they could with this show. (Oh yeah, speaking of summer hiatus, there's a story about it in the episode which you will want to hear.) On a much brighter note, we cover episodes 5 and 6 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, inching ever closer to both the Lower Decks crossover episode and the musical episode (both covered in the soon to arrive episode 101. This show has continued to impress old and new Star Trek fans alike. Tune in to hear perspectives from Trek veterans and fresh-faced cadets alike! Follow us on the platform formerly known as Twitter @TheVerseCast where we Xeet news and pod announcements, re-Xeet only the finest memes, and collect listener Xuestions.  Whataver-X! Oh yeah, if you stick around after the credits we always have a post credit scene or two. This time around it revolves around the return of a friend or two... or is it too? or is it one? Either way you will want to listen.

No one can explain why, but this was recorded weeks ago and sat in the vault, unpublished. We are glad to share it and you can expect a more timely episode delivery going forward. In this 'lost' episode the squad continues coverage of the latest Disney+ Marvel show, 'Secret Invasion' - a show which was getting wait-and-see reactions from the squad. At this point things are heating up for Nick Fury and the Skrulls…or at least, they should be. We’re halfway through the show and still don’t know what to think! Up next, school’s still in session with Star Trek Uni’Verse!-ity, helmed by our very own Professor Longacre. He’s no replacement for the Admiral but he looks and sounds suspiciously similar. Their squad's stance on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is quite the opposite of that for Secret Invasion. It is more like see-and-wait-and-wait-and-wait for more. To say the squad is enjoying season two would be an understatement. It is as if they keep waiting for 'Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow' for new episodes to discuss, just like 'The Lotus Eaters.' Follow us on Twitter–er, X? Whatever you call it, we’re @TheVerseCast, where we post news, announcements about the pod, and collect listener questions. If you stick around after the credits you may find some old school summer fun…
The Squad kicks off their coverage of the latest Disney+ Marvel show, Secret Invasion. It’s about time we got some unbridled Fury in this universe! Nick Fury, that is. We discuss the show’s comic origins and the extensive changes to the story by the TV adaptation. We’ve been promised 'Winter Soldier' vibes and Skrull-y twists behind every corner, so we’re excited for what’s to come. Stay tuned for our coverage of the whole series as it comes out. We continue our coverage of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season two with episode two, 'Ad Astra Per Aspera,' a return to The Next Generation in many ways as a courtroom drama with direct commentary on contemporary social justice and civil rights issues. We also revisit an old TNG episode, 'The Outcast;, to assess what’s changed and what’s remained of Star Trek’s progressive-leaning programming. The Star Trek Uni’Verse!ity is in session!

We’ve got a real multi-versal episode for you this week with our coverage of the second Spider-Verse installment as well as the premiere of season two of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Tune in to find out if we think Across the Spider-Verse reaches the same soaring heights as Into the Spider-Verse, as well as a breakdown of the film’s top performances, score, and the absolute avalanche of Easter eggs and references. We reboot Star Trek Uni-’Verse!-ity to kick off our coverage of Strange New Worlds season two. No Admiral today, but we still bring you the same comprehensive discussion designed for Trekkie veterans and newbies alike. If you stick around after the credits a certain sentient door puts us on the run.

Played by Chace Crawford, The Deep’s character has been the writer’s punching bag for 3 seasons. He’s been me-too’d, joined a cult, had sexual relations with marine life, and in season 3, was forced to devour his octopus best friend alive (justice for Timothy!). The ‘Verse! had the extreme pleasure to talk with Chace Crawford about his iconic role.
An interview with two of the people that helped bring all of the Star Trek magic back in full force for a series you have heard us discuss at length on The 'Verse! 'Star Trek: Picard.' Dorothy threw us for a loop, after she sent us on interviews with stars of Prime Video's 'The Boys' we did not expect to find Picard Show Runner Terry Matalas and Production Designer behind the door - but we are glad we did. Who's next???
The 'Verse! Squad sits down with the not-scary, unlike his character Homelander, ANTONY STARR to discuss his work on one of our favorite shows not-so-super superhero series, Prime Video's 'The Boys.' You better subscribe now because there are more The Boys interviews to come.
The 'Verse! Squad sits down with the incredible Jack Quaid to discuss his work on one of our favorite shows out there Prime Video's 'The Boys.' You better subscribe now because there are more The Boys interviews to come.
The squad looks back on 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in anticipation of the newly released sequel, Across the Spider-Verse. Which we all have seen but cannot discuss yet because we are too busy interviewing some of the coolest people behind Star Trek: Picard... oh yeah and most the cast of The Boys. You know how it is, whatever Door-thy (our resident murderous AI sentient doorway) wants, she gets. Don't worry, we'll catch up soon. Make sure you give us a follow on your favorite podcast platform to be notified of our upcoming coverage of Across the Spider-Verse and all of those interviews.

This week's episode features double segments with the removal of Emilia's Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi Blindspot and the squad's decade-specific recasting of Guardians of the Galaxy in The 'Verse! Reeee'Verrrse! We're almost through the Star Wars sequels which means we've almost completely dragged Emilia from her peaceful layperson status and into the fraught world of Star Wars fandom. During the process we discovered another big squad secret. Our very own SW fan Lucas has NEVER seen Rise of Skywalker so our final sequels segment will feature DOUBLE blindspots! In the meantime tune in to hear Emilia's first impressions of The Last Jedi. Next up we each re-cast Guardians of the Galaxy with an original cast composed of decade-specific stars: Lucas with the 70s, Norm with his favorite decade the 80s, Emilia with the 90s, and Bridget brings us home with the noughties.

After some sort of mysterious time warp that erased 20 days of our existence, the squad is finally just getting to finish their delayed coverage of Paramount+’s Star Trek: Picard with the end of season three and series finale. It was worth the wait. We bid a fond farewell to the now golden-aged cast of The Next Generation in a heartwarming sendoff. Which means the latest semester of our Star Trek Uni-’Verse!-ity is officially over! School’s out until Star Trek: Strange New Worlds returns this summer.
