On the show this week we're discussing Terance Stamp, TV Spots, Carrie Fisher, Solo's reshoots, Rose, Rag & Bone's Star Wars clothing line and we read out some Star Wars trivia sent to us by a listener. Get involved with the show; what would you want to hear us talking about?
This week sci-fi's two biggest franchises go head-to-head and Jude's having none of it. We start the show by sharing weird stories and then discuss Boba Fett's alledged escape from the Sarlacc. In this episode we also speculate as to Rey's origins and Kylo Ren's real intentions.
Excitement is mouinting for The Last Jedi - only 49 days to go (50 if you're american). Yesterday, we got wind of some snippets of dialogue from the new movie and deliberate over them slightly. We discuss the new behind the scenes reel and how lapse security regarding plot leaks was in the innocent days of the prequel era. John has an interesting bit of trivia concerning Ralph McQuarries relationship with the Star Trek universe and before the episode ends John makes a controversial statement concerning Star Trek 2: The Wrath Of Khan. This changes everything. Next week, our Star Wars Vs Star Trek episode. TELL YOUR SISTER!
The formerly untitled Han Solo spin off movie has a title and its not that impressive. After the big new intro, John and Jude discuss the upcoming movie at length and read out listener responses. John also quizzes Jude in the style of Vogue's Daisey Ridley interview.
This week Dan Ridgway sits in for Jude - Dan and John recount some of the crazy drunken benders they've been on, playing Battlefront at 3 in the morning and trips to the newsagent-cum-newsagent. Conversation focuses on the latest announcements regarding Battlefront 2 and what we'd like to see from the much-anticipated follow up.
On the show this week, we discuss Colin Trevorrow's firing and JJ's hiring - We also discuss faults with The Force Awakens and how we'd have done it differently and make some predictions for The Last Jedi. In other news there's John's cat story. Bit of a quiet one this week, recorded in a pub (again).
We're onto the prequels and joining us for this Episode 1 commentary is friend-of-the-show Dan Ridgway of Yorkshire. The prequels divided audiences and this first installment remains arguably the most controversial. Can the three of us have a serious discussion about why this was, or will our conversation descend into childish name-calling and purile filth? There is only one way to find out.
We coudln't bring you a podcast this week, thankfully we recorded a backup episode down the pub. In this we're both a little drunk and mostly discussing Star Wars related subjects although we do drift onto other movies, old school anecdotes, joke telling and it all ends with an impromptu Queen / David Bowie singalong! Not our greatest episode, but far from our worst!
