Episode 84 – We Survived the Droids Treasure of the Hidden Planet Commentary

A not so long time ago, Jason & Gabe had the great idea of watching the Ben Burtt penned Droids animated series primetime special, The Great Heep. Having loved it and talked about Master Mungo Baobab in just about every Blast Points episode afterwards, they decided that it would be awesome to go ahead here and do a full commentary for the entire Baobab arc of four Droids animated episodes. Almost ninety minutes later, they are wondering if they made the right decision. Join them this week as they struggle to know what’s going on, figure out just who is talking, how this all makes any sense, do bug man voices and struggle to not drift into the forever sleep. It’s the Treasure of the Hidden Planet and it’s definitely one of Star Wars’ strangest moments ever.

So ride your space horse to the Rune Sea and get Lin-D the comedy droid out & try to to celebrate the love with Blast Points!

Watch it here!

Use the Forks! – Star Wars Cooking

USE THE FORKS!
Star Wars Cooking
There are few mysteries in the Star Wars universe bigger than the identity of Rey’s parents. Personally, I’m a fan of the Qui-Gon + Shmi = Rey’s Mom or Dad theory. Mostly because I love Qui-Gon, and “Shmi” is fun to say. Plus that would make Rey a Skywalker, explaining how strong she is with the force. It also explains her Qui-Gon hair in the Last Jedi previews. But if she turns out to be a Kenobi, that would be pretty great too… Is it December 15th yet?!
Back before Rey was piloting the Millennium Falcon, and delivering light sabers to bearded recluses, she spent her days on Jakku living in an abandoned AT-AT Walker. She scavenged for parts, and traded them for portions of spongy Polystarch bread. But don’t worry BB-8, there aren’t enough portions in the entire galaxy to make Rey betray your friendship (even if she did consider it momentarily).
Since we don’t live in a galaxy far, far away, you’ll need the help of your microwave to help this bread rise. It’s more of a sweet bread, than a crusty roll, but it will still provide you with the energy you need to bypass any compressor.
 
Rey’s Portion Bread
Makes 1 portion
Ingredients:
  • 4 Tablespoons cake flour
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Green Machine Naked Juice
Directions:
1. Spray a ramekin or ceramic mug with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Add cake flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to the ramekin or mug, and stir until well combined.
3. Stir in Green Machine juice.
4. Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
5. Allow to cool before serving.
6. Enjoy while waiting for your family to return.
