Jason and Gabe are talking about one of their favorite Star Wars things ever, Dark Horse Comics’ amazing and vastly underrated Star Wars Tales comic series.

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!
