Ep. 146: You Want Some Soup?

So many tv spots for The Rise of Skywalker, a sweet episode of The Mandalorian, and more! Here's what happens:

  • Be careful out there! There are spoilers everywhere!
  • In Who Got What? we find out that NOBODY got a baby Yoda and nobody is gonna get one anytime soon.
  • There are some rad new The Rise of Skywalker tv spots with some cool dialogue from Sheev. Will it be in the movie?
  • The stars are making the media rounds.
  • There was an episode of Star Wars Resistance that two of us watched.
  • Okay, everyone wants to talk about chapter 4 of The Mandalorian. We gave it high scores all around. Somehow there have been some complaints that a certain person on the show managed to kick the Mando's ass, and some complaints that one person knew how to shoot a blaster. Yep, for reals. BUT THE SHOW, AM I RIGHT?!?!?
  • Eric needs a Carbonized Mandalorian from Target. Help.

  • People are playing Jedi: Fallen Order and apparently it's pretty dope. Mostly.
  • We talk about the first two episodes of The Mandalorian and how cool they are. And they're cool. SUPER COOL.

Ep. 143: Bob Iger: Born a Gamblin’ Man

It's Mandalorian eve, and we can't sleep. Also, Bob Iger says things. Oh, and how about Star Wars Resistance? Here's what happens:

  • It's the season of giving. Help someone out.

  • How about some big predictions for The Mandalorian? Some are good. Some are really good.
  • Eric is taking forever to finish reading Star Wars: Resistance Reborn. If you start reading it right now you'll beat him, and then we can all talk about it!

  • Eric interviewed Bill Motz and Bob Roth, the masterminds behind LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, about the show and the fanbase behind it. It's great to have Star Wars being created by people who love it! Be sure to catch the Freemakers on Disney+. It's a great show.

Ep. 141: Movie Making Is a Complicated Profession, Don’t You Agree?

A new trailer for The Mandalorian comes out of nowhere on the day we record?!? Wow! Oh, and some news drops while we're recording. Finally! Here's what happens:

  • Kids, am I right?
  • Who Got What? is a mixed bag of triumph and pain.
  • So, how about the trailer for The Mandalorian? Yep, it's cool.
  • EW (and some other news outlets) say there's a huge spoiler for the Star Wars universe in the first episode of The Mandalorian. Does the word spoiler even mean anything anymore?
  • Did you miss anything in the trailer for The Rise of Skywalker? We sure did.
  • Benioff and Weiss are not doing their Star Wars movie(s). They're too busy, apparently. Is there more to it?
  • Season 2 episode 4 of Star Wars Resistance, Hunt on Celsor 3, is a hoot. Who's hungry?

Ep. 140: Taking One Last Look - The Final Trailer

We have a new trailer for The Rise of Skywalker. What else matters? Here's what happens:

  • Tickets? We got 'em.
  • Who Got What? really makes us think that at least one of us might have a problem.
  • THAT TRAILER, am I right? What does it all mean? What did we miss? Why didn't we all watch it for our first time all together?
  • What's up with the Cassian series?
  • What's the deal with the Mandalorian episode schedule?
  • The latest episode of Star Wars Resistance, Live Fire, has some interesting moments. Remember that deleted scene from Solo? And man, the First Order are psychos.
  • We take a total sideline on what education methodology should be like in this day and age. I know, I know.
