FAIR WARNING: THIS EPISODE IS A COMPLETE PLOT BREAKDOWN OF THE FORCE AWAKENS. DO NOT LISTEN IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE MOVIE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED IN ALL CAPS. THANK YOU. HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY. WE LOVE YOU. ALMOST AS MUCH AS WE LOVE THE FORCE AWAKENS. YES, DEAR FRIEND, STAR WARS WEEK IS BAAAAAAAAAACK!
That's right, the Groundhog Day-style existence you've been living has finally come to an end and Star Wars Week can come to a close... at least until December 15, 2017, when the great Beatles prophecy of an 8-day week will be fulfilled by cinematic genius Rian Johnson.
But don't think about that right now... Today is a celebration of the release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens! As we recount the entire plot of the film, we drool over the sheer giddiness of the whole project, address the J.J. Abrams's blase fair approach to exposition, toe the line between nostalgia and laziness, have a real hard time remembering Poe Dameron's name, speculate about an MIA Luke Skywalker, and allow ourselves to get excited for Episode VIII! It's a really good time to be a Star Wars fan, folks.
As always we'd like to thank Laura Cooper of the webcomic XP for our show's art, Bensound.com for our outro music, and you the listener for sticking with us!
