    Episode XLV - Revenge of the Sith, Part 1

    Episode XLV - Revenge of the Sith, Part 1

    We've reached the finale of the prequels, and it is a good one! Revenge of the Sith opens with nearly a half hour of a flawless rescue sequence which showcases the best parts of Star Wars: Fun banter, incredible VFX, amazing sound design, fantastic villains, and humor and emotion in measured doses to compliment it all! Let's dive in!

    Episode XLIV - Attack of the Clones, Part 2

    Episode XLIV - Attack of the Clones, Part 2

    Let's wrap up the second of the prequels before we head out on a month long hiatus. The latter half of the movie suffers from the same ails as the first, with an inconsistent and poorly written love story dragging down an otherwise stellar tale of Obi-Wan tracking down the bad guys. We get a phenomenal introduction to Count Dooku, some fun scenes with Jango Fett, and an all around great setting in Geonosis, where the Clone Wars finally begin. Let's talk about it!

    Episode XLIII - Attack of the Clones, Part 1

    Episode XLIII - Attack of the Clones, Part 1

    We pick up 10 years after The Phantom Menace, and Anakin has grown up to be quite... something. A phenomenal opening act, spoiled only by some honestly creepy romantic dialogue that is extremely hard to overlook. Coruscant shines as the main focal point of the first quarter of the movie, and explorations of Naboo and Kamino are enjoyable as well. Obi-Wan as a detective is a great story device, but the romantic plot between Anakin and Padme feels forced. Let's jump in and see how we feel about the first half of Attack of the Clones!

    Episode XLII - The Phantom Menace, Part 2

    Episode XLII - The Phantom Menace, Part 2

    Let's wrap up the first of the prequels today, in our inaugural episode of a "mature" BTS - After Dark! Will we get carried away discussing things that have absolutely nothing to do with Star Wars? For sure! But do we both come away with a greater appreciation for The Phantom Menace after this rewatch? Also yes! Jar Jar and young Anakin may be a bit much for the adults, but there are some major things to love about this movie, including a fantastic climax and brilliant world building.

    Episode XLI - The Phantom Menace, Part 1

    Episode XLI - The Phantom Menace, Part 1

    At the time is was released, it was a Star Wars movie much maligned by older fans who were expecting a more serious adventure. For many of the younger fans, however, it was an exciting and fun expedition into just how different Star Wars could be when Lucas took it in an entirely new direction. Is Jar Jar too jarring? Does the CGI hold up? Does TPM deserve to be in the bottom three of most people's Star Wars rankings? Let's talk about these questions and more in part 1 of our discussion!

    Episode XL - Obi-Wan Kenobi, Episode 6

    Episode XL - Obi-Wan Kenobi, Episode 6

    Now this is how you end a show! Kenobi wraps up on a high note, with one of the best duels we've seen in Star Wars, a foreshadowed redemption arc for one character, and a hopeful future for all. Lots of parallels here to other Star Wars media to discuss, in particular the sequels and some legends ideas, and we're not entirely opposed to seeing some more of these characters again. Let's dive in!

Genuine Analysis and Fun All Around

I’ve been listening since this show was on a different network and I’ve enjoyed every single episode. These two men genuinely appreciate all Star Wars and seek to understand more than just what is presented. They deep dive into fun facts, continuity of shows and movies, and refuse to dwell on any negative media or influence.

I love their insight and respect every episode and it puts a smile on my face to hear them talk about it all. This show makes me look forward to refreshing my phone to see if another episode has released like my favorite tv show each week.

The amount of love, respect, tenderness, and joy this podcast exemplifies is why this is my favorite podcast of all time. Keep going strong and May The Force Be With You!

Phenomenal Show

I’m a fan of Merc from his pre-Bungie days on Firing Range and Massive Breakdowns and I love this. They take the same level-headed, analytical, and fair approach to discussing this universe and it’s various stories and characters. Very refreshing to hear discussions based on facts and critical analysis, excellent show.

Great Star Wars podcast

Love listening to this as a review of the series or movies after watching them and they do well explaining things in the episodes. Also they point out things that may or may not have been noticed when first watching things. Definitely recommend this for any Star Wars fan!
