“The Force Awakens” vs. “The Last Jedi” with Dark Vader of Galactic Empire: NHC – February 4, 2018

Wilkommen, Nerfherders! Are you enjoying our new theme music? Of course you are. The band who recorded it, Galactic Empire, is about to kick off a new tour. We get Dark Vader on the show to talk about hitting the road with Mac Sabbath, recording their upcoming album, and our main topic for this week: comparing “The Last Jedi” to its predecessor, “The Force Awakens”. Two very different movies, two very different approaches, two very different fan reactions. Which comes out on top? Well, that depends on how you approach the topic!

We’re a mere 4 days from Star Wars Celebration Orlando!!!!! We’re too geeked to talk about anything else, so we don’t.

NHC: March 26, 2017 – WTF Maul?!

Who’s got horns, a red and black face, and got the finger in his latest appearance on Star Wars: Rebels? Hint: it’s not Obi-Wan. We all knew the day was coming when Maul had to face Kenobi again, but this… this “fight” left the Council feeling as cold as a Tattooine night.

Also on the episode, we discuss the possibility of The Last Jedi going back to the start – but of what?? Tune in to find out!
