“Star Wars Resistance”: Our Predictions!

We’ve got a brand spankin’ new animated Star Wars series tonight: “Star Wars Resistance”! We lay out our expectations for this exciting new series, and ask some tough questions – questions like “Who the &$%# are these characters?” and “Why should we care about these &#$%ing characters?” Yeah. This is NHC. We ask the tough $%&#ing questions.

“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!

NHC – May 21, 2017: The Force Awakens Trollfest

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??

NHC: August 14, 2016 – 3D Star Wars and Greatest Characters

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!
