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.

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!

NHC: August 28, 2016 – Revenge of the Sith Retrospective

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.
