Star Wars: Droids: The Revenge of Kybo Ren

Join Scott and Hamish as they take a look back at an episode of an often forgotten chapter of the Star Wars saga: "Star Wars: Droids!" Listen as they breakdown and review the eighth episode "The Revenge of Kybo Ren". They'll talk all about the chronology of the series, the status of its canonicity, and especially the curious character of the space pirate Kybo Ren, whose name seems way too similar to "Kylo Ren" to be just a coincidence. Does this cartoon have anything to do with the movies? How did C3PO and R2D2 have these adventures independent of the other cinematic characters? Did George Lucas change anything for the home video release? Wait, why is there a Klingon ship in this?! They'll answer all of these, and much much more! So wheel yourself space cake, disable your green force field, and laugh along at whatever this cartoon was trying to do! Bleep bloop!

Supergirl: Pilot

Join Scott and Shawn as they breakdown and review the pilot episode of DC Comics' hit series about Superman's cousin and her decision to devote her life to becoming a superhero: Supergirl! Listen as they detail the long history of the character of Supergirl, from a girl magically wished into existence by Jimmy Olsen in the 1950's (then crushed by a meteor), to Kara's death and resurrection, and a very poorly reviewed movie. They'll point out the many Easter eggs you may have missed, discuss the show's change of networks for season two, and theorize possible ways for Supergirl to join the other shows of the "Arrowverse". And if that wasn't enough, they'll explain how the episode wouldn't have a villain if it wasn't for Sean Connery wearing a speedo. (Sadly, this is true.) So wrap yourself in an indestructible blanket, eat a celebratory pizza, and join us for a trip to National City! Up, up and away!
