Bonus EP: TRoS Commentary

What could be better during social distancing then to listen to 3 idiots talk about a Star Wars movie, while said movie plays in the background? Nothing! Which is why we recruited King Tom to help us commentate The Rise of Skywalker. You can watch it with the movie or just listen along because we have the movie audio in the background. (Full disclosure, we love this movie. So if you're looking for a negative review, this isn't the episode for you.)

Stay safe everyone.

Ep. 161: Orkin Skywalker

The world is upside down right now. In the midst of all of that, we got a surprise early release of the digital version of The Rise of Skywalker and a new episode of The Clone Wars! Here's what happens:

  • Be kind to people. Do your part. Don't be a turd. Please. Seriously, please.
  • Who Got What is saved by Eric's son.
  • We all got the gift of an early streaming release of The Rise of Skywalker. How about those deleted deleted scenes?!? See what we did there?
  • Somehow Dallas and Eric couldn't find time to read one comic book. What a pair.
  • We take a look at S07E04 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Unfinished Business. It's the end of the Bad Batch arc. What did you think of it?

Star Wars Celebration, Lor San Tekka, and the impending home release of The Rise of Skywalker! Here's what happens:

  • No Dallas? No Problem! Our pal Robbo (@GC9X) helps fill the void.

  • Oh, Ian McDiarmid, we would listen to you read the dictionary just to get more of that Palpatine voice.
  • We take a look at S07E02 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, A Distant Echo and it does not disappoint. How are you liking the episodes so far?
