Episode 331 – Luke’s Death Blow

It’s a simple question but one that inspires thousands of thoughts – Why did Vader block Luke’s death blow to the Emperor in Return of the Jedi?  Especially if he still wanted to rule the galaxy as father and son.   Inspired by a 2013 blog post from JW Rinzler where he asked this question, we are analyzing every aspect of this small but oh so important moment in ROTJ.   What was Vader thinking and what clues in earlier moments lead us there?   Plus, what did George Lucas say the meaning of that moment was?  Listen and find out!

AND – SNOKETOBERFEST CONTINUES!  The giant clone thing in gold isn’t done making sounds and the SNOKETOBERFEST party is far from over!  

So, get in a laser fight, listen today and celebrate the love!

Episode 330 – The Legend of Alien Exodus

That’s right, this week we are finally talking about ALIEN EXODUS.   In the wild times of 1995, there almost was a trilogy of books by Hugo and Nebula award winning author Robert J. Sawyer that not only explained how humans came to the galaxy far, far away but boldly connected the Star Wars universe to THX-1138 and American Graffiti.  YES!  Join us as we explore how this came about, what the story would have been and how Earth really is just connected to Star Wars anyways!  AND – we hear from Robert J. Sawyer himself on how it all went down!

PLUS – SNOKETOBERFEST RETURNS!!  It’s 2022 and Snoketoberfest is running wild with the Snokey sounds between Snoke’s golden voice!
