It’s our 50th episode! We’ve got our buddy Nick Ammons joining us on this one, sparring with JT about most topics. It’s no secret The Force Awakens is down the list of JT’s favorite Star Wars movies, Nick says it’s better than the vaunted Rogue One. We also dig into prequel fandom, Rebels, soundtracks and more!
Allo, Nerfherders! As the Council gears up for a new The Last Jedi trailer on Monday night, we take a moment to look back on our favorite moments from the franchise so far. There are some sentimental favorites, some groundbreaking scenes, and no named characters were killed in the making of this episode.
Hello, fellow Herders! We had grand aspirations for this episode, we really did, but a particular YouTube video (deliberately not linked, so as not to drive any more traffic to it) was so inflammatory towards ‘The Force Awakens’ that we never got to our larger topic. We take on this behemoth of pessimistic clickbait willingly, so does it count as getting trolled??
Did you tune in to our live stream last Wednesday? Well, this isn’t that show. This is an all-NEW show recorded *this* week instead. Aren’t you thrilled?! We still debate the greatest Star Wars characters (or one author’s opinion, at least) – but we also cover an exciting report suggesting the prequels may finally see a 3D Blu-Ray release!
So you think The Phantom Menace rips off A New Hope more than The Force Awakens? Well, you’re wrong! And we’ve already talked about that. It leads us to an article about a person’s first viewing of Episode 1, though, so let’s party like it’s 1999 and talk about that.
Greetings, fellow Herders! On our debut show, we discuss the most obvious topic of all: The Force Awakens! After some brief introductions, we get into our thoughts about the film, the questions it raises, where the story is headed, and some random thoughts as we get pulled off-topic more than once. (Hey, we’re new at this!)
