About Us

IT'S GOLD PRESSED LATINUM FOR YOUR EARS. Every week Wade, James and Hugh watch an episode of THE GREATEST TV SHOW before TV was great. Or was it? One episode at a time.

Latest Episodes

Second Sight (DS9 S2E09)

EThis DS9 episode could have used a second pass... Glen gives the podcast a second pass and has to mention Kanye, Colm with John Huston, and ... Dune? What starts with a great father/son scene about that time Picard blew up Ben Sisko's wife devolves into mooning over a woman with no personality and a penchant for disappearing. A man reignites a dead sun with science we are dubious about. But the episode is almost worth watching just for Chief O'Brien's eye rolls alone. https://www.patreon.com/kickersofelves?filters[tag]=Dune https://kickersofelves.com https://twitter.com/kickerspodcasts

Second Sight (DS9 S2E09)

Necessary Evil (DS9 S2E08)

ETerok Nor? More like Terok NOIRE! How did Odo go from doing the “Cardassian Neck Trick” in parlours to being a constable on board a Bajoran space station? A flashback episode will answer that. Kira is pretty great. We spend a lot of this episode gushing over how we think Peter Allan Field is the best thing to happen to Star Trek Deep Space Nine. But is there something missing from this episode? Wade rambles about this episode and embarrasses himself again.

Kickers of Elves bonus: This is Not My Star Trek Podcast!

EAnother teaser where these jerks don't even talk Star Trek. James and Hugh talk about The Punisher's computer guy, America's Chernobyl, and mostly Richard Power's The Overstory. Want more of these conversations? All the juicy personal drama is over behind the paywall. Check out the Kickers of Elves patreon at https://patreon.com/kickersofelves

The Rules of Acquisition (DS9 S2E07)

ETitle track! 24th Century Buttslap! Hugh looks back on this episode and provides some Mark Singer Facts at the end. Does this Deep Space Nine episode live up to the hype? Maybe not. There are a lot of rules in this episode, and we get the first mention of the Dominion. Plus a lot of rehashed Shakespeare plot from a play two of us performed way back in our high school days. Plus some good old fashioned 90's Gay Panic!

Melora (DS9 S2E06)

EMore like "Meh, Lora", huh? Wade Looks back on this episode and tries not to embarrass himself. DS9's resident pickup artist, Julian Bashir "falls in love" and has some zero g space sex. We really lay into Julian in this one. We debate some more alien physiology, including turkey wattles and mouth handles in addition to what a lady who grew up flying might look like. How bout that David Foster Wallace reference? Let us know if that alienated you; we love you regardless. Aw, sorry to make it weird again... https://patreon.com/kickersofelveshttps://kickersofelves.comhttps://twitter.com/kickerspodcasts

Melora (DS9 S2E06)

Cardassians (DS9 S2E05)

EWhilst Julian and Garak flirt at the replimat, a Cardassian boy boards DS9, bites Garak, and sets off a story wherein we actually start to appreciate the character of Julian Bashir. Not nearly as much as we enjoy Garak or Dukat, however. Race issues! Down to a Guess Who's Coming to Dinner scene. This is perhaps the best episode that we've watched since Duet. Also: Why do we love these space nazis so much? Our racist grandpas. Trans-Racialism James has more fodder for his anti Ira Behr libel; we go against the grain of your typical DS9 fan, and praise Gene Roddenberry. Is the writer a hack? In the remix material,Hugh reexamines a theme that we have barely gotten to yet in the podcast. James called a shot on Discovery.

Invasive Procedures (DS9 S2E04)

EThis weekHugh has some Invasive Procedure facts we left out from the original version. A trill episode! Deep Space Nine has been evacuated, but for completely different reasons than last episode! Jon Glover is a mediocre trill, but he wants a slug of his very own...Dax's slug! He assembles a ragtag team of Western tropes, a confederate and a hooker with a heart of gold, to run a badly planned heist aboard DS9. Stat Trek favorite Tim Russ appears as a pre-Tuvok Klingon! We talk a good deal about the ins and outs and evolution of conjoined races.

The Siege (DS9 S2E03)

EStar Trek goes Star Wars? Blasphemy! What is Wade even going on about at the end of this? But this is an action packed episode where Kira and Dax fly a small X-wing sized ship, and encounter a muppet spider - someone found it at a yard sale (really). Lots to unpack in this one. Wade thinks it's a little weak in the scene transitions; James thinks there's some filler. Oh, and Stephen Weber shows up and blows his chance to portray a bigger character on DS9 later! The grand ending of the the three part beginning of Season 2 of the third Star Trek series (not counting the animated one)!
