Ep. 128: You Down with 480p? Uh Yeah, Not Me

July 31, 2019

Some news about The Mandalorian, people are still buying DVDs, and some Episode IX leaks (no spoilers)! Here's what happens:

  • Who Got What? went all the way around. We need to keep a list of the stuff we buy so we quit buying it again.
  • Scoring for The Mandalorian begins, and some possible news regarding a character from The Clone Wars being in the show.
  • Star Wars Resistance isn't coming out on Blu-ray?!? What? But there will be DVDs a plenty.
  • Remember when we said we were surprised no LEGO images had been leaked? Well...
  • Doug Chiang showed some cool old concept art on his Instagram feed. Go look for it here.
  • Jason Ward at put some pretty cool rumors out there. Don't read them if you don't want to be spoiled at all! You can check it out here.
  • Hey Esquire, what are you doing? We didn't know you did articles like this.
  • Dallas drops a Star Trek bomb on us.
  • The ending song is a mashup of Taylor Swift's new song, The Archer, and Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper. Check it out on YouTube here.
