Welcome back to the only Star Wars podcast that wouldn't let good porg meat go to waste. There has been a box office opening - have you felt it? The Last Jedi has finally arrived.

Join Chris & Patrick for their debrief of the newest installment in Star Wars Canon. We kick things off differently, with cutting-edge reactions from our hosts and special guest Brendan - brought to you live from Chris' phone - as they head to and from their Thursday night viewing. After these opening rounds, join the boys from the studio proper for a SPOILER-HEAVY breakdown, recorded Friday night.

  • the impact of new visual effects like the long-distance conversations
  • "that" cameo, and other possibilities
  • the truth about Ben and Luke
  • can we trust certain revelations?

  • the underutilization of secondary characters
  • the film's balance & other nitpicking
  • how this film's stark tone shift changes the future of the franchise
