NHC: November 6, 2016 – “A New Hope” for Episode 4

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.

The EEEEVIL Empire??

NHC: October 23, 2016 – “Snips” No More, and It’s EPIC.

“Have you ever considered we may be on the wrong side?” Padmé may have had it right! On this episode, we turn the tables and consider the Galactic Civil War from the Empire’s point of view.

Also on this show: a brief review of the new book, Ahsoka, and just how EEEEVIL is the Empire??

On a personal note, happy birthday Dad!!

NHC: October 9, 2016 – Rogue Friday Blows Up!

“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!

Opinion: Why Episode 8 Needs a Time Jump

Episode VIII picks up right where The Force Awakens left off, which will be a first for Star Wars saga films. In our first-ever opinion column – yes, we can type, too! – AJ explains his case against coming right back to Rey and Luke to begin the movie.

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”.
