    123 - The Star Wars, Part 1

    123 - The Star Wars, Part 1

    Years before he wrote Star Wars, George Lucas wrote “THE STAR WARS,” an epic Space Opera that has some words you might recognize but otherwise bears almost no resemblance to what we now think of as Star Wars. The story, goals and themes are completely different. And, oh yeah, Artoo talks.

    There are 4 main drafts of the original Star Wars script, and while you might expect that they progress from something strange to something familiar, they are essentially all completely different stories, with only a few things in common throughout, finally leaping with the 4th draft into what eventually made cinema history.

    So get ready, because we’re gonna show you that, oh yes it can get worse than Midichlorians!

    122 - Sam Hamm's Watchmen, Part 6

    122 - Sam Hamm's Watchmen, Part 6

    It’s the conclusion of Sam Hamm’s Watchmen, and it’s worth noting that this is now SAM HAMM’S WATCHMEN, because the finale bears absolutely NO resemblance to Alan Moore’s Watchmen and is, in fact, completely incompatible with the world that Moore established.

    This whole episode is a series of “wait, what?” moments for anyone with even a passing familiarity with Watchmen. Time bubbles, main characters vaporized, and a turn for the meta that feels like Hamm ran out of ideas but really needed to meet a deadline.

    If you thought most of this script was a fairly boring and straightforward re-trace of the major points go Watchmen, then this is the part where all that is thrown out the window!

    119 - Sam Hamm's Watchmen, Part 3

    Learn about the origins of Dr. Manhattan! How did he get his powers? Answered! Where…uh…do his powers come from? Answered! What did his dad do for a living? Mentioned!

    Actually, the guys do more to inform you of the backstory of Dr. Manhattan (neé Osterman) than the script does. But it is a very Manhattan-centric episode, if you’re into Big Blue! So come spend some time with the only superhuman on Earth… We have been assured that doing so via a podcast will not give you Blue Dick Cancer.

    And speaking of Dick, you’ll never guess who the President is! (Just kidding, you’ll totally guess, because it’s the most idiotic “reveal” in the history of cinema).
