Two Star Wars Stories, two very different results. What made “Rogue One” such a success, while “Solo: A Star Wars Story” floundered at the box office? And what do these two movies tell us about the future of Star Wars films beyond the Skywalker saga? Let’s dig in and find out!
Last week’s episode was all about Star Wars characters who didn’t live up to the hype. We flip the script and discuss the opposite this week: which Star Wars characters turned out *better* than advertised, or don’t get enough love from the fandom?
With so many characters in the Star Wars universe, there are bound to be a few clunkers. And some of them still achieve popularity! We don’t get it, and we tell you who we think are the most overrated characters in all of Star Wars.

It’s for another round of stupid Star Wars fan theories! We’re talking Snoke as a Force ghost, babies for Rey, Kylo, Han, and Qi’ra, and more! Strap in: we get stupid on this episode!

We’re changing things up! This week’s episode is the first a new weekly format. We kick off our shorter-form shows with a brief look back at the most recent film in the Star Wars franchise, “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. Now that it’s ended its
“The Clone Wars” is coming back! It’s been 10 years since its debut, and it’s time the Council talked about it. The show had some amazing high points, but by the end of its run, were the stories worth telling – and do we need any more?
“The Last Jedi” is still inspiring heated debate and likely will for years to come. We got to thinking: has any other movie in the franchise caused this much uproar? We think the answer may be ‘yes’: “The Phantom Menace”! Both movies did not deliver the story fans expected and set the franchise on a different course. Join us as we dissect the similarities and differences between these two movies, and try to figure out just why it is that fans are so triggered by them.
