As the iconic title crawl tells us, The First Order is back on top despite the destruction of Starkiller Base in The Force Awakens. They’re now attempting to eradicate any remnant of The Resistance to gain full control of the galaxy. Rey attempts to convince a calloused, crotchety Luke Skywalker to help aid in the fight, and Poe fights under the command of Leia. Meanwhile, Kylo Ren suffers from his injuries sustained the last time he squared off against Rey. He’s also under the thumb of the mysterious Snoke, who treats him more like a whipped dog than an apprentice. With this setup, Episode VII: The Last Jedi begins!

On this episode, we dive into the biggest film of the year, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There have been many ravings and frustrations over the latest saga in the Star Wars universe, and we are not shying away from any of them. Rey’s journey, Kylo’s plan, Luke’s arc, and what it all means for returning favorites like Poe and Finn.

Nothing is off limits as we discuss what we loved AND loathed about this latest adventure in a galaxy far, far away. Also joining us, are a few fans with their mini-reviews to showcase a wide range of disruptions in the force.
