The Take podcast: first impressions of Picard & debating video game movies


This episode of The Take explores Star Trek: Picard and asks what is better: movies based on video games, or video games based on movies?

Episode breakdown

First up host Blake Howard is joined by Garth Franklin (editor of Dark Horizons) to discuss the appeal of Amazon Prime’s new series Star Trek: Picard and what it’s like to see Patrick Stewart reprise his most beloved role.

Then, to coincide with the release of Sonic The Hedgehog, this week’s ‘Duel of Takes’ (12:30) debates movies based on video games versus video games based on movies. Stu Coote, co-host of The Sinner Files podcast, argues the former, while Josh Corbett (fellow Sinner Files co-host) argues the latter. Let the games begin.
