Mar 12, 2016

Dan & Kenton talk about JJ's big mistake in The Force Awakens, go of on a decent-sized tangent about the new Civil War trailer (hey, it's all Disney folks!) and finish off with Weird Al's contributions to the Star Wars universe.

Feb 27, 2016

It was a bit of a slow week for Star Wars news, so the Nerds delve into their favorite characters from the franchise. If you were to only buy three Star Wars action figures, which ones would you buy?

Dan & Kenton take a few moments to pay their respects to the late Alan Rickman, then run down the list of Oscar Noms (giving their completely uneducated guesses on who will win.) They pledge to watch all of the Best Picture nominees before the Oscars, so we'll see how successful they are with that. 

And, recommendations are back. Yay.

Jan 12, 2016

The Nerds take a few minutes to remember David Bowie, who contributed so much to the world of sci-fi and who sadly passed away this week. 

As well: what can we expect from Rogue One? What do we want to happen in Episode 8? And Colin Trevorrow or George Lucas? Which is the lesser of two evils for Episode 9?

Dec 10, 2015

Kenton & Dan continue working their way through the original trilogy with the second half of Empire Strikes Back. Spoiler Alert: turns out Darth Vader is Luke's father. Who knew?

Dec 1, 2015

Dan & Kenton sit down to watch the original (kinda) Star Wars: Episode IV, A New Hope. While reminiscing about their childhood experiences with the film, they hate on most of the "Special Edition" enhancements and question Ben Kenobi's true motives in recruiting Luke...
