Lightsaber faves episode

Loved hearing you guys debating about your favorite lightsaber duels. Definitely you need to do same with animated series, etc. maybe do EU books and comics???
One that wasn’t mentioned but would have been in my own list: Ahsoka vs. Morgan E. In the Mando episode “The Jedi”. From that spear ring to the end it was awesome. Also the first live action heavy hint that Thrawn was still alive! Great nostalgia moment for me as a Chiss Grand Admiral fan.
Great show. Keep it up!

New and interesting perspectives!

A breath of fresh air. Finally found a Star Wars podcast that thinks for itself. Deep, thought-provoking, and definitely subscribing!

My thoughts

I have enjoyed most of what I have heard and have gone back in archives for shows but it is disappointing how many shows do not give an overview in the beginning of the movie/ show that is being talked about Thanks Jimmy/Don for being consistent on that.
