Welcome back, everyone! A long time ago, in a Facebook group far, far away, two upstart podcasts connected. (Spoiler: One of them was us.) On this, our 20th episode, we bring on John from The Blockade Runner. (That was the other podcast.) He gives us thoughts on The Prequels Strike Back, Star Wars Celebration, and how great we are.
Salutations, Nerfherders! This time around, we turn the mics on Brad Weatherholt and Kyle Brodeur, the creators of a new documentary called “The Prequels Strike Back”. Is it possible that George Lucas was telling a smarter story than anyone gave him credit for? Tune in to hear about the movie that explores that very question – and download “The Prequels Strike Back” starting September 14th!
Salutations, fellow Herders! On this episode, the Council discusses the final film of the George Lucas era: Revenge of the Sith. Is it a paint-by-numbers conclusion to the prequel era, or is it something more inspired? Jon, as usual, defends its virtues, while AJ isn’t so sure – and Steve, well… Steve can’t make up his mind.
Did you tune in to our live stream last Wednesday? Well, this isn’t that show. This is an all-NEW show recorded *this* week instead. Aren’t you thrilled?! We still debate the greatest Star Wars characters (or one author’s opinion, at least) – but we also cover an exciting report suggesting the prequels may finally see a 3D Blu-Ray release!
It’s time to celebrate, fellow Herders! With Star Wars Celebration Europe having come and gone, we discuss the big news coming out of the annual event. We cover blind Jedi, a legend from Legends being reborn in the new canon, and the overall effect of “rejected” Star Wars ideas being brought in to new stories – and it was all streamed LIVE on Facebook. Check it out, and be ready to tune in and take part on Facebook next Wednesday at 8:00pm EST when we do it all again!
So you think The Phantom Menace rips off A New Hope more than The Force Awakens? Well, you’re wrong! And we’ve already talked about that. It leads us to an article about a person’s first viewing of Episode 1, though, so let’s party like it’s 1999 and talk about that.
Welcome back for another thrilling edition of The Nerfherder Council! With Jon and Steve back, we discuss the late and hefty reshoots ordered for Rogue One. Is this the Disney-fication of Star Wars at its worst, or is it righting the ship? We toss a few ideas around. Join us and let us know what you think!
Welcome back for another fantastic episode of The Nerfherder Council! We’re making friends on this episode, talking with another relative newcomer to the Star Wars podcasting scene: Blabba the Hutt! They’ve got firsthand knowledge from the set of Episode 8, and they’re *way* smarter than we are. Give it a listen!
We all know and love A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Heck, we’ve even debated which one deserves the title of “Best ‘Star Wars’ Movie” on this very show! But what if we’ve had it wrong this whole time?? There are some people (or one, at least) who think Return of the Jedi is the best of the series. We weigh its merits – because ultimately, even the “worst” of the original trilogy is still amazeballs. Amiright?!
Happy Memorial Day, Americans! Sick of waiting for Episode VIII to answer all the questions raised by The Force Awakens? Well, wait no more! We dive into a few more of our favorite fan theories. Vader is Snoke! Your mom is Snoke! Ahsoka is Snoke!
