    The Fallout of The Rise of Skywalker

    The Fallout of The Rise of Skywalker

    Two weeks after THE RISE OF SKYWALKER debut, we begin a deep exploration into the themes, character development, and impact of Episode IX on the whole Saga. This time, with no special guests or distractions, we're able to have a full discussion about what TROS means to us and how it ties up the Skywalker story. Where does it enhance previous episodes in this trilogy? How does it reinforce messages from prior films? Does it contradict any of the previous mythology? We consider our reactions and look at other responses from across the internet. And, we listen to that mysterious transmission from The Emperor in Fortnite, along with comments from J.J. Abrams and more theater audio from when we saw the movie on opening night.

    THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Review #3 w/Paul Bateman

    Paul Bateman joins us for the full show to talk about anything and everything going on in THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. We look closely at the chemistry between the “Big 3” characters in this trilogy - Rey, Finn, and Poe - along with a hard focus on the return of Emperor Palpatine and speculation about how his comeback was possible. We react to the appearances of fan favorites Lando Calrissian and Wedge Antilles, and throw down hard opinions about some heavy moments in the film, like the truth of Rey’s evil lineage, The Spirit of Luke, the final destruction of The Sith, and the kiss that sealed the deal. Enhancing our conversation is audience reaction audio from the theater where we saw THE RISE OF SKYWALKER on opening night that puts you right in our row!

Mr Iger approves

Keeping the shareholders very happy Jason and Jimmy Mac!

Bandicoot_PWR ,

Great podcast until TLJ

Great podcast if you skip all the discussions about TLJ.

Amazing how off the mark about characters or story beats in that movie Jimmy and Jason are.

I loved the guys back from when they did the force cast and early RFR but something has changed in recent years

“Saga saved” says it all, really.

Tim from Melbourne ,

Hit & miss

Mostly good but it’s about time they gave the TLJ hate a rest.
