This time around on the Nerfherder Council, we take on the controversial documentary “The People vs. George Lucas”. Is the creator of Star Wars deserving of all the criticism thrown his way, or are his contributions to a galaxy far, far away enough to warrant fans’ unwavering respect? Jon of course sides with Mr. Lucas, and has plenty to say on the subject!
Not much happening in Star Wars this week, which is rare! We look ahead to the rest of 2017 and discuss the major events coming up on the Star Wars calendar – and there are a LOT: Rebels, Celebration, Force Friday, The Last Jedi, comics, books, video games… it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan!
Salutations, fellow Herders! Episode 8 has a title – “The Last Jedi” – and we discuss the crap out of it. (That’s what podcasts do!) We take a look at potential story directions, some Solo family history, the Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide, and recap
Welcome back to our regularly scheduled programming! With two Disney-led Star Wars films released, we take a look at each to see which one *feels* more like Star Wars. We tend to lean towards Rogue One, despite its format breaking so many conventions. Why is that? The Council discusses.
…Aaaaand we’re back! This time around on the Nerfherder Council – our first of 2017 – we explain what happened to our last episode. Rathtars! We also reflect on the passing of Carrie Fisher, interview Dark Vader of the Star Wars metal band “Galactic Empire”, and reflect on our first year on the air.
The Council returns with a jam-packed 2-part episode, recorded before and after seeing Rogue One! Stormtrooper tetherball, production meetings, and Toy Story aliens are just a few of the topics we hit on. Warning: spoilers ahead!
It’s back to the start! “Rogue One” opens in just 6 weeks, and butts up to what started it all: Star Wars. (“A New Hope” to you kids.) In fact, we’ve got a kid on the show! Let’s see what Generation Z feels about a movie made nearly 3 decades before he was.
This is our love letter for the film that started it all.
“Rogue Friday” live at Toys R Us didn’t work out as planned, but it makes for entertaining show fodder! Join us as we recount our misadventures in live streaming, and then get theoretical about Disney storytelling in the George Lucas era of the Star Wars timeline: what it means for the saga, how it might differ from the style we’re used to, and what might become of all of these previously unknown characters. Also, Steve talks on this one!
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.
