Last week’s episode was all about Star Wars characters who didn’t live up to the hype. We flip the script and discuss the opposite this week: which Star Wars characters turned out *better* than advertised, or don’t get enough love from the fandom?
Happy Autumn, Nerfherders! We’ve got a special guest on the show this week: Dan from the Discography Discussion podcast! Amazingly enough, his first exposure to Star Wars came by way of the now-Legends book The Last Command on audio cassette – meaning the original trilogy
Hello again, Star Wars faithful! The Council decided to take a break from movie talk this time, choosing instead to focus on Star Wars books! “Star Wars: Thrawn” leads off our discussion, and then we tangent into character arcs throughout the saga. How much can a character change throughout the story before it goes from interesting to inconsistent?? As always, we have the answer.
And Porgs. Cuz #Porgs.
Greetings and awkwardly long handshakes, Herders! We had so much to say about Star Wars Celebration Orlando, we couldn’t cram it all into a single episode. We managed to cram it into 2, though! In this episode, we give our thoughts on The Last Jedi trailer, talk more SWCO stories, spoil a book for Jon, and discuss the real-world problems of Star Wars costuming.
It’s time to celebrate, fellow Herders! With Star Wars Celebration Europe having come and gone, we discuss the big news coming out of the annual event. We cover blind Jedi, a legend from Legends being reborn in the new canon, and the overall effect of “rejected” Star Wars ideas being brought in to new stories – and it was all streamed LIVE on Facebook. Check it out, and be ready to tune in and take part on Facebook next Wednesday at 8:00pm EST when we do it all again!
