This week's episode is a recording of a Trivial Pursuit game John and Chris played at a kitchen table outside of St. Paul, Minnesota a few hours after catching a screening of The Rise of Skywalker. As a result it features lots of chatter about Episode 9, the prequels, sequels, and original trilogy, but also pretty rough audio. We think it's a fun episode if you're ok with (far) less than great production quality, but we'll be back soon with another standard episode if not.

Ryan returns in this second post-TROS episode to weigh in on diverse characters and representation in the sequel trilogy. We spend the second half of the show deciding whether or not we believe Han, Luke, and Leia's stories were more satisfying at the conclusion of the OT or the ST. Plus we throw in a little holiday cheer at the start of the show by chatting about how Star Wars made its way into our Christmas gatherings. Episode Links: EW: "J.J.

TROS Spoilers abound as we continue our tradition of putting out an immediate reactions episode with terrible audio quality and terrible blues music pumped your way from a recording done at a local bar. John, Jeremy, Dan, Kevin, and Bart bring you an informal, loose discussion of our first thoughts on the movie. We'll be back later in the weekend with a higher audio quality, more organized look at the movie (featuring Ryan who's absent from this recording).  Show Links: Email = blockaderunnerpodcast@gmail.com Click here to send us a voice message!

There's only a few days left until the release of The Rise of Skywalker and the end of the Skywalker Saga and this episode features our final predictions about what the movie will be. We start with a brief look at The Mandalorian Chapter 6 but after that it's all TROS. Highlights include predictions about Rey, Kylo, Rey and Kylo, Bendemption, the balance of the force, chosen ones, stormtrooper rebellions, and so much more. We discuss everything that's been released by LFL, so if you've been avoiding tv spots or trailers, tread lightly.

Lucasfilm continued to release TROS tv spots and promo videos this week, so we share our favorite moments as well as debate the merits of nostalgia in these recent marketing efforts. We then discuss the recently streamed Star Wars kabuki performance (with help from friend of the show Dave Hackerson) before wrapping up the show with our reactions to The Mandalorian Chapter 4.

The Rise of Skywalker press tour is kicking into full gear with new tv spots, talk show appearances, and magazine features dropping seemingly every day, so we're digging in and pulling our favorite shots, moments, and quotes as we enjoy these last few pre-TROS weeks of anticipation. We also look at The Mandalorian Chapter 3, the current state of Star Wars merchandise availability, and wrap the show with a response to a listener question re: our personal spoiler policies leading into the TROS release.

This week's show is basically just two big segments covering The Mandalorian chapter two and Jedi: Fallen Order. We start the show by discussing favorite moments from The Mandalorian as well as some potential symbolism in the episode and the cruelty of the post-Empire galaxy. The second half of the show features our early experiences playing Jedi: Fallen Order and a discussion of its influences and gameplay systems.

The bulk of this week's show is focused on discussing what Benioff & Weiss's leaving Star Wars could mean for the franchise's future as well as what might've led to their departure. Ryan shares his experience seeing Knives Out (but says absolutely nothing about the plot, so don't worry about that) and we also spend a few minutes discussing the most recent Mandalorian trailer.

This week's episode features some lingering questions re: the final TROS trailer. We also ponder the soliciation for Marvel's Kylo Ren #2 and how it may require us to reconsider what we thought we knew about Ben Solo's fall and the birth of Kylo Ren. We conclude the show with a few minutes on the toy reveals coming out of Comic Con Paris and the upcoming Doctor Aphra #1 and Darth Vader #1.

This week's show is all about comics and cartoons! For the comics side of things, we run down the Marvel Star Wars news coming out of NYCC 2019, take a look at some recently announced Star Wars manga, and share our thoughts on the first two Return to Vader's Castle issues from IDW as well as Star Wars: Allegiances #1 from Marvel. The second half of the show is devoted to discussing the first two episodes of Star Wars Resistance's final season before we wrap with a few minutes on Freddie Prinze Jr.'s recent (brilliant) viral monologue.

This episode features the second half of our conversation last week (too big to be contained in just one show!). We begin by discussing the lack of Rose Tico in TROS products and promotion before looking at the publishing announcements from NYCC 2019. We wrap the show up with some talk of the Kevin Feige news and what it may mean for the future of the Star Wars films. Episode Links: Where's Rose? #Where'sRose?

This episode features the first portion of a lengthy discussion we recorded this week that got a little bit away from us in terms of length, so we're splitting it into two episodes. This first one features our Triple Force Friday recap including our experiences going out looking for product, our impression of the merchandise we found, and some of the problems we see with quality, promotion, and distribution. We'll be back later in the week with the rest of our chat covering #Where'sRose, Kevin Feige's announced Star Warsmovie, and the Star Wars book announcements from NYCC 2019.

This week's episode is news heavy again as we discuss Deborah Chow directing the Obi-Wan show, the TROS issue of Empire Magazine, and the (official this time) Triple Force Friday reveals and livestream. We also talk a little bit about Babu Frick, but somehow we forgot to bring up the week's biggest story: Kevin Fiege producing a future Star Wars film. Whoops.

Triple Force Friday is less than two weeks away, and even though we haven't really had any official announcements about what's being released for the event, we spend two hours talking about all of the toys that have leaked so far (pretty much all of them). We're sorry.

This week's episode is all about Star Wars video games. We kick off the episode by disucssing the recently announced Jedi Knight and Jedi Academy console ports before devoting the rest of the show to taking a look at the recently released and completely excellent Star Wars Pinball package for Switch. We originally planned on discussing the many Rise of Skywalker toy leaks that have been happening lately, but there was just too much pinball to talk this week so we're saving that discussion for episode 122.

Inspired by the recent D23 Rise of Skywalker trailer, this week we're taking a look back at each of the saga films' teasers. We discuss the evolving art form of movie trailers, which teasers most accurately reflect the films they're advertising, and why watching the Attack of the Clones and Force Awakens teasers is such a transcendent experience.
