COMMENTARY: Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Join Scott and special guest, Star Wars expert Paul as they travel down a painful road, delve deep into a dark memory from their childhoods, and watch George Lucas' first installment of the Star Wars prequels: the infamous "Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace"! Listen as they discuss some of the terrible CGI, the crazy names and backstories for the many background characters, and make a somewhat modest defense for Jake Lloyd. (Hey, he was just a kid.) They'll point out cameos you may have missed, talk about "Episode I Racer" for Nintendo 64, and reminisce about falling for the hype and buying merchandise for the movie. All in real time as they watch the movie!!! Oh, and a "mystery guest" also calls in! 

It's a regular episode, but as an added bonus, it also syncs up with the movie! So, if you can, pop in your copy of the movie and listen along, otherwise just listen and enjoy our misery!

The Star Wars Holiday Special

Why was there only Wookie dialogue for many segments? What's with Mark Hamill's makeup? It Itchy's virtual reality helmet what we think it is? Why is Chewbacca such a terrible father? What's happening at the end? Bea Arthur? All of these questions are answered and many, many more. Also, Shawn calls in from his sick bed to share his thoughts as well. This was quite the experience.
