After a long absence, and now much older and wiser, Drew returns to set us straight about Star Wars. And I wreck things and generally act childish.
We lament the familiarity of the plot and some character choices. We debate weather Daisy Ridley is actually Keira Knightly (me: yes; Drew: probably not), and whether the stormtroopers are “thick” and/or “phat”.
We volley back and forth with our deep, deep knowledge of the Star Wars Extended Universe, most of which is made up. We ponder the reason why Kylo Ren is there, why Finn instantly goes from Conscientious Objector to Hollywood Hero, how maps work, who is making robots that feel bad, and why any of this happens.
Bonus: I clear my throat 11,000 times!
We’re watching the Blu-ray. Start right after the logo on the countdown.
