Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (3rd Trailer)

Join Scott and Star Wars expert Paul as they breakdown every little detail of the third trailer for the most anticipated film of the year: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! Listen as they speculate on the motivations of Kylo Ren, what the Starkiller Base actually is, the origin story of Finn, and the mystery that is the absence of Luke Skywalker. They'll also address the questions: Who are the Knights of Ren? Why are stormtroopers burning homes? How did BB-8 land on Jakku? Do Finn and Poe Dameron dislike each other? Does Chewbacca die? And many more! They'll also discuss appearances by Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Rey's (Daisy Ridley) life on Jakku, and the amazing work by J.J. Abrams. Then, using the other two trailers and official poster, they'll try to put together the pieces of the puzzle and guess the framework of the story. So much to discuss, so little time left! May the sequels be with you!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Pilot

Join Lily and Scott as they review the first episode of ABC's hit show about a team of special agents, specially formed to investigate the strange happenings of the Marvel universe: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Listen as they discuss the history of one of comics' clunkiest acronyms, why comic book realities don't always translate well to live-action, why DC should have tied their shows to their cinematic universe, and why the resumption of the Mike Peterson storyline in episode 10, makes this show worth watching. Hey, have you heard about Tahiti? It's a special place.
