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!
Hello, fellow Herders! As some of you have pointed out, we had issues with playback for those streaming rather than downloading our episodes. We looked into the issue and decided to pull an Alderaan on our old media hosting. Our new host is as beautiful and secure as Hosnian Prime, so stream us all you like! We know we’re perfectly safe now.
Attack of the Clones is the worst Star Wars movie ever made! At least, that’s what many people would have you believe – but does it deserve such a bad rep? We stack it up against a few other common lowlights in Star Wars cinema and see how it compares. Also, Battlefront video game news and an awful Ziro the Hutt impression.
This is our first-ever “instant” episode, so bear with us! Star Wars Celebration 2017 was announced earlier today, so we take a look back at some our favorite moments from Celebrations past – and Jon books a hotel live on the air. Aren’t you glad you tuned in for that?? May the Fourth Be With You!
Star Wars is the greatest saga of all time – but which movie is the greatest of the bunch?? It often comes down to A New Hope versus its sequel, The Empire Strikes Back. So let’s discuss, shall we?! It’s kinda what we do around here. Also: boobie trees.
It slices! It dices! It… flies?? Yep! We’ve got flying Inquisitors now, thanks to their handy-dandy roto-sabers. We’ve also got Sith temples, Maul’s re-emergence, Ahsoka’s final(?) fate, and a blinded Jedi. Betcha didn’t see that coming! Neither did Kanan. 😛
Star Wars: Rebels is ending its second season. Seems like a good time to weigh the merits of this series versus its predecessor! And a good time to talk Battlefront, Star Wars theme parks, NSFW Wookieepedia articles, and more.
Star Wars’ annual “This Is Madness” tournament has arrived! With a whole crop of new contenders this year, there’s no telling who will come out on top – but we tell anyway. You’re welcome.
