Gooch has finally recieved his Blah Wars t-shirt and helps kick this episode off on the subject of Star Wars video games. John and Jude share their memories of playing classic Star Wars games, X Wing Alliance, X Wing Vs TIE Fighter, Rebel Assault 2, Rogue Squadron, Shadows of the Empire, Racer, Episode 1: Jedi Power Battles and of course; Battlefront. Midway through our conversation a special guest turns up; Nour. What does she know about Star Wars? Lets find out! A fun 55 minutes, I think you'll agree. Wrap your ears around this and for fucks sake, tell your sister, yeah?
John's on the rum, Jude's on the beer. John is so desperate to interview another Star Wars legend that he's fabricated his own interview with George Lucas using various audio clips. The boys look back at some of their memories from last weeks' LFCC. Jude shares some Star Wars jokes from the Star Wars Joke Book, kindly given to him by friend of the show, Nour. John also reveals the magic word you will need to win a prize on instagram. If you've ever been knee deep in a pork pie, get in touch. Tell your sister. It's 1 hour of filth. Please note: John's mic goes wrong about half way though, you can still hear him but it sounds pretty shitty compared to the usual quality we try and deliver.
Blah Wars #9: London Film & Comic Con (with Special Guests Jeremy Bulloch, Garrick Hagon, Jimmy Vee, Dickey Beer and Jess from Po-Zu)
Have WE got a belter of a show for you?!! Coming at you "LIVE" from London Film & Comic Con, John and Jude are soaking up the atmosphere, meeting fans, dealers and guests. John interviews Star Wars legend Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett), original trilogy stunt man Dickey Beer (Return of the Jedi), the lovely Garrick Hagon (Biggs Darklighter) and Jimmy Vee (R2-D2 in the Force Awakens and The Last Jedi). This epsiode was recorded on location, using a variety of devices so the sound quality differs thoroughout, all the same this might be our finest episode to date. Tell your sister, yeah?
Hot of the back of last week's episode (recorded in the same sitting), John & Jude are full of beer and sausage rolls, ready for some serious debate about the subject of lightsaber duels and the prequels. We start rolling out ideas for how the prequels could be remade. It needs development.
Jude is back, but it's been a dry week for Star Wars news, so we've asked our listeners to submit their questions. Topics range from Taun Tauns to favourite costumes. We also play a new game called "What the fuck are you talking about?". Lots of laughs to be had in this banter-filled, beer-infused return to form.
This week we were supposed to be bringing you a Return Of The Jedi commentary, but due to circumstances beyond our control, we've had to postpone the recording session. As a fall back we have glued together some highlights from an unreleased version of our A New Hope commentary. We hope this is better than nothing.
John and Jude are on fire in this week's episode; the firing of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (directors of the upcomming Han Solo movie) being one of the big talking points - We also talk about Tazos, those pog-like plastic discs found in bags of Walker's Crisps back in the 1990s and have an exciting announcement regarding London Film & Comic Con.
After 'Star Wars' came 'The Empire Strikes Back'; argubaly the best installment of the Star Wars saga, not to mention of the strongest sequels ever made. This second installment in our audio commentary series is packed with trivia and behind-the-scenes info.
John and Jude are back from city breaks and they've got plenty to talk about, starting off a with a shout out to a very special, world record-breaking listener. Jude shares his experience of visiting Lake Como, where the 'romantic' scenes from Attack of the Clones were shot. We hope you like the sound of water, ducks and crying children. The top stories include the theft of $200,000 worth of Star Wars collectables from Rancho Obi Wan and the recently revealed VR Star Wars game. Scout uniform anyone?
The first in our audio commentary series, is Star Wars: A New Hope. We can't help but think back to the events of Rogue One as we re-live the film that started it all, but the real test of the viewing is can John contain his anger at the film's recently-added CGI additions.
