Ciao, Herders! Force Friday 2 turned out to be a debacle for your intrepid Council members, and we recount the events on this episode. But first, we can’t help but pontificate on the meaning of Colin Trevorrow’s exit as director of Episode 9. What’s so hard about getting along with Kathleen Kennedy anyway??
Hello again, Star Wars faithful! The Council decided to take a break from movie talk this time, choosing instead to focus on Star Wars books! “Star Wars: Thrawn” leads off our discussion, and then we tangent into character arcs throughout the saga. How much can a character change throughout the story before it goes from interesting to inconsistent?? As always, we have the answer.
Hello again, Herders of Nerfs! The Council has fallen prey to Last Jedi mania. On this episode, we peruse new promo images published by Entertainment Weekly. You’ll be amazed at what information is contained in these photos! We dig into the details and uncover the
Hey there, Nerfherders! We all agree that The Force Awakens is a great movie, but it could’ve been a *very* different movie. The Council came across a video from the fine chaps at WhatCulture discussing this very topic. After a brief detour, we discuss!
Konnicihiwa, Nerfherders! There’s a lot to cover this week. AJ and JT both have plans to visit Lucasfilm this year, opening dates for the Star Wars lands may point to a location for Star Wars Celebration in 2019, we review a fan’s list of possible standalone movie topics, and plenty of other hijinks. Yes, we said “hijinks”. Get off our lawn!!
Welcome back, Nerfherders! As much as we hate jumping on the news cycle, we – meaning *Jon* – can’t pass up the opportunity when his beloved Han Solo is in trouble! News recently broke that the directors of the as-yet-untitled Han Solo movie were fired with principal filming almost complete. Ron Howard has stepped in to direct. What does all this mean for the film? Turns out – surprise, surprise – Jon has plenty to say on the matter!
Salutations, fellow Herders! It’s our 40th episode already! Can you believe that?? We figured for this momentous occasion, the Council would try something new (for us) and take an in-depth look at the film that started it all 40 years ago. Listen along as we watch “Star Wars: A New Hope”!
Hello again, Herders! We’ve got a rift among the Council, and we bring it to the table. Both ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and ‘Rogue One’ told stories with known events and endpoints – so which movie tells its story better? JT jumps to the defense of Episode 3, AJ takes up the cause for ‘Rogue One’. We get the pulse of our fellow podcasters on this topic to bring a broader perspective to the conversation.
Hello, fellow Herders! We had grand aspirations for this episode, we really did, but a particular YouTube video (deliberately not linked, so as not to drive any more traffic to it) was so inflammatory towards ‘The Force Awakens’ that we never got to our larger topic. We take on this behemoth of pessimistic clickbait willingly, so does it count as getting trolled??
Greetings and awkwardly long handshakes, Herders! We had so much to say about Star Wars Celebration Orlando, we couldn’t cram it all into a single episode. We managed to cram it into 2, though! In this episode, we give our thoughts on The Last Jedi trailer, talk more SWCO stories, spoil a book for Jon, and discuss the real-world problems of Star Wars costuming.
