EXCELLENT Star Wars Commentary

Hands down the best Star Wars podcast out there: incredibly informative, funny, wide-ranging, and fan positive.

I’d like to address some of these weirdly negative show reviews that have cropped up here of late, as it seems some people can’t stand it that Jason and Jimmy have a few gripes about The Last Jedi specifically. But you know what? They have gripes about all the others films, too! Remember Han shot first?!? Ewoks?? Jar Jar?! Sand!? George Lucas’s incessant need to constantly tweak his original films?? Those movies have been around and discussed for DECADES, and yet people are somehow surprised that the show hosts are still talking about a movie that premiered a mere two years ago? Both Jason and Jimmy like and dislike things about The Last Jedi, and they love The Force Awakens, Solo, and Rogue One and are always discussing them as well. But interestingly enough, you never see people complaining that the hosts are still talking about the other Disney Star Wars movies—the negative reviewers of late seem strangely fixated on cherry-picked Disney and Last Jedi criticisms, like they only have one or two things they’re listening for, including agreement with their personal opinions. It’s a purity test, and it’s simply not reasonable. Plus, Jimmy and Jason appreciate all the actors of the Disney era and have nothing but positive things to say about them, even if they don’t like all the creative choices made in the films. Same goes for the original and prequel trilogies. So they’re critical of Kathy Kennedy’s leadership at Lucasfilm... who wouldn’t be at this point? It’s like a revolving door for creative talent over there, and just look at the state of the fandom.

Folks should pay attention to the overwhelming positivity of the long-running Rebel Force Radio show instead of hearing one or two things they don’t like and throwing everything else out the window. It’s an understatement to say that there’s so much Star Wars and fan love at RFR! For example, on top of their regular weekly releases, Jason and Jimmy put out another weekly show dedicated to basically praising Disney’s The Mandalorian after each new chapter, where they take live calls from fans all over the country for thought-provoking conversations. They employ good-natured humor, always respectfully and in good faith, and they know how to take a joke themselves. In general, the Rebel Force Radio hosts are extremely knowledgeable about all things Star Wars, including trivia, memorabilia, breaking news, toy collecting, behind the scenes stuff, conventions, and more. They regularly interview people in the Star Wars world, and they have other fun recurring segments that I eagerly anticipate each week. Jimmy and Jason are excited for The Rise of Skywalker—as am I—and I look forward to many more years of discussions on all of the past, present, and future films and shows. And no, I don’t have to agree with them on every little thing to respect that they think differently from me on a whole range of topics, Star Wars and otherwise! They share their honest opinions, which has made me a better, more forgiving fan. Indeed, I am grateful to them for teaching me to love the Star Wars that we have, including parts of the prequels and The Last Jedi that have been hard for me to understand.

To Jason and Jimmy, and Billy Mac too, I say keep up the good work, guys, and MTFBWY! Can’t wait for Rise of Skywalker about a week away!!!
