Episode #301 – Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

STAR WARS
EPISODE I
THE PHANTOM MENACE

It’s a time of great hope, for a new Star Wars approaches after years of nothing but the original trilogy. Fans flock to the theaters in droves to see the origins of Darth Vader…and they get a Trade Federation? Gungans? Committees? Senators? Chancellors? Cool pod race, though. And Ewan Mcgregor really knocks it out of the park as Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Episode #300 – 300

WE DID IT! We reached our 300th episode! To celebrate this momentous occasion we decided to something completely on-the-nose and unsubtle and review Zack Snyder’s 300…which is also on-the-nose and unsubtle! And fun was had by all. Oh, and also Happy Thanksgiving!

Episode #299 – Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

STAR WARS
EPISODE VI
RETURN OF THE JEDI

It’s 1983, and fans eagerly line up to see the conclusion to the trilogy, with expectations soaring high. What they get causes some distress. Swashbuckling? Ewoks? Silly humor? Well, yeah. It’s the perfect distillation of everything we liked from the first two movies, and quite possibly the best way to end the trilogy. Of course, some additions have been made over the years that have made this chapter difficult to enjoy. Join us as we discuss Return of the Jedi!

Episode #298 – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

STAR WARS
EPISODE V
THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

It is a dark time for the rebellion…but a pretty friggin’ sweet time for us because we get to talk about The Empire Strikes Back, easily the best Star Wars film ever made. If the last movie captured our imaginations, this one captured our hearts. It cemented our fandom and gave us the best ship in the galaxy: Han and Leia. It also gave us Yoda, Lando Calrissian, Lobot, and perhaps the biggest surprise this side of the galaxy. There’s a reason why this one sits at the top of many SW fan lists. So join us, won’t you?

Episode #297 – Star Wars: A New Hope

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

STAR WARS
EPISODE IV
A NEW HOPE

It is a time of great nostalgia! Bryan, Chewie, Jon, and Emily come together to discuss the movie that changed history and made us the geeks we are today. We talk about our first introduction to the movie and what makes it so special to us. We also look ahead to the upcoming Rise of Skywalker in the hope that the final chapter will properly close the saga.
