The Ahsoka Ahshowka - Part Eight: The Jedi, The Witch, And The Warlord
Welcome back fellow mere droids! It's (finally) time for more of "The Ahsoka Ahshowka" where today I talked about the 8th episode of Ahsoka, "Part Eight: The Jedi, The Witch, And The Warlord." Well, this is it - the season finale of Ahsoka is finally here, which means this is the last time you'll be hearing for me for a while. But with that said, this episode was good and really leaves you wanting more.
May those (yes those) Stormroopers be with you!
The Ahsoka Ahshowka - Part Seven: Dreams and Madness
Welcome back fellow mere droids! It's (finally) time for more of "The Ahsoka Ahshowka" where today I talked about the 7th episode of Ahsoka, "Part Seven: Dreams and Madness." After waiting too many days last time I wanted to be sure to get this episode (which I really enjoyed) out to you as quickly as possible!
May the Great Mothers (mine being the greatest since it's her birthday) be with you!
The Ahsoka Ahshowka - Part Six: Far, Far Away
Welcome back fellow Creepy Stormtroopers! It's (finally) time for more of "The Ahsoka Ahshowka" where today I talked about the 6th episode of Ahsoka, "Part Six: Far, Far Away." This episode is coming out a few days late because I've been sick!!! But I finally feel good enough today to return to the world of mediocre podcasting. You're welcome, galaxy.
May the Space Rock/Crab People be with you!
The Ahsoka Ahshowka - Part Five: Shadow Warrior
Welcome back fellow clones! It's time for more of "The Ahsoka Ahshowka" where today I talked about the 5th episode of Ahsoka, "Part Five: Shadow Warrior." This episode seemed like a love letter to the fans of Clone Wars, and for those not quite as knowledgable, just some cool, cool Star Wars stuff.
May the Space Flashbacks be with you!
The Ahsoka Ahshowka - Part Four: Fallen Jedi
Welcome back nerf herders! It's time for more of "The Ahsoka Ahshowka" where today I talked about the 4th episode of Ahsoka, "Part Four: Fallen Jedi." I'm starting to realize some things that seem cool on this show would be even more cool if I realized what they were referencing.
May the Laser Swords be with you!
The Ahsoka Ahshowka - Part Three: Time to Fly
Welcome back fellow space nerds! It's time for more of "The Ahsoka Ahshowka" where today I talked about the 3nd episode of Ahsoka, "Part Three: Time to Fly." I almost started this episode singing some REO Speedwagon, but I realize the name of their song is slightly different. Not sure why I told you that.
May the Space Whales be with you!
The Ahsoka Ahshowka - Part Two: Toil and Trouble
The Ahsoka Ahshowka - Part One: Master and Apprentice
Greetings Star Wars fans! I'm back talking about another new live-action Star Wars Disney+ series with today's premiere of Ahsoka! This special series is cleverly titled, "The Ahsoka Ahshowka" which really looks weird when you spell it out...
Today the first two episodes of Ahsoka premiered, but I am only talking about the first one in this episode as I've only watched the first one. But fear not, tomorrow (or actually later today) I will be back with another brand new episode discussing episode two - and I'll be back every Tuesday with new episodes!
May the Star Wars be with you!
The Mandalorian Man – Chapter 24: The Return
Here we are...face to face, a couple of silver spoons.....Sigh. That's all I can say is - sigh. It's over. Season 3 of The Mandalorian AND Season 3 of The Mandalorian Man are officially done. Today I am here talking about the latest and last (for now) episode - "Chapter 24: The Return."
For whatever people are saying about this season, I think it ended on an enjoyable/satisfying note. Was there that jaw-dropping moment like what we got waaaay back in season 2? Well, I'm sure as heck (I apologize for the language) not going to spoil it here in case you are reading this before you watched the episode.
All I will say is, that I (me, myself) was happy with how it ended regardless of how we got here - and I'm not even saying that as a negative. I'm just saying that with everything they set up last week, I left smiling this week. Smiling - and ready for more.
The Mandalorian Man – Chapter 23: The Spies
Thanks to everyone in this hive of scum And villainy who come back week after week to hear lil ol' me talk Star Wars! I'm back talking another rad episode of The Mandalorian – "Chapter 23: The Spies."
This episode REALLY sets up for a big finale, as well as a bigger overall Star Wars story being told in these show – but fair warning: I got almost no sleep last night, watched the episode about 12 hours before I talked about it, and took almost no notes. Does it show?
Um, yeah probably – but let's be honest, you don't keep coming back here for dynamic in-depth discussion right? You come back because I'm paying you!
(Imagine being that one guy who's like – wait, I haven't gotten paid yet!)
The Mandalorian Man – Chapter 22: Guns for Hire
Hey there all you cocky kids, I'm back talking another funky episode of The Mandalorian - "Chapter 22: Guns for Hire" - with robots, detective work, and cameos galore! But will our heroes get what they need to take back Mandalore?
Yup, that rhymed.
The Mandalorian Man – Chapter 21: The Pirate
Hey Fuzzballs! Hi, it's me. I'm the Mandalorian Man, it's me. Is that still cool to riff on? If not and you think that joke is already old, then I'm glad I didn't use the "Wayne's World" reference I was originally going to lead with. Anywho, today I'm back talking the newest episode of The Mandalorian - "Chapter 21: The Pirate" - in which my SNL intro almost kinda make sense. Schwing!
The Mandalorian Man – Chapter 20: The Foundling
Hey Nerf Herders! I'm back to talk about the latest episode of The Mandalorian - "Chapter 20: The Foundling" - where we get a very cool flashback from Grogu while Din and Bo are off saving some kid that Grogu beat at paintball. Enjoy!
The Mandalorian Man – Chapter 19: The Convert
The Mandalorian Man – Chapter 18: The Mines of Mandalore
Happy Wednesday fellow Star Warriors...yeah I'm not feeling that one either, but too late. My back arrow key is stuck so I can't go back and edit that. I better be really careful with how I spell stuff going foward - oh no, I jinxed myself. Better wrap this up before I mes up again. Oh great, now the grammar police are sure to come after me. Anywho, today I watched the brand new episode of The Mandalorian - "Chapter 18: The Mines of Mandalore" which I thoroughly enjoyed and I hope you enjoy me tallking about it. Dammit!
The Mandalorian Man – Chapter 17: The Apostate
For two years and three months, we waited (not so) patiently for the return of the Mandalorian. We saw him and Grogu get reunited in Boba Fetts' spinoff, but that wasn't enough. We wanted the REAL THING back and finally - finally - FINALLY - The Mandalorian returns for season 3 and that means the O.G. Mandalorian Man is back to talk about Chapter 17: The Apostate! STAR WAAAAAARS BABY!!!!!!!
Andor with Candor: S01E12 - "Rix Road"
This isn't a goodbye. This is just a "see you until next time!" Today I watched the fantastic season finale of the fantastic ANDOR and I couldn't wait to talk about it. I mean I DID wait until almost the end of the day to watch it and podcast about it - but I didn't want to....So saying I couldn't wait was a lie.
Wait, what am I talking about? Oh yeah - great end to a great season of a great series! Can't wait to see what comes next from ANDOR and what comes next for live-action Star Wars on Disney+. Whatever it is, the Mandalorian Man will be there to talk about it.
May the force be with you - and shine on you crazy (Neil) diamond!
Andor with Candor: S01E11 - "Daughter of Ferrix"
It's the last Wednesday before the next Wednesday that is the Wednesday that will have the last episode of Andor! And today I am talking the last episode of Andor before the LAST episode of Andor for this season. Don't worry - I'm annoyed by myself at this point too.
Good episode (as usual) that I think really sets up for what should be a fantastic finale. But again - that is NEXT Wednesday. Until then my blue milk drinking friends....
Andor with Candor: S01E10 - "One Way Out"
Happy Wednesday Space Fight fans! What else is there to say about this episode except that Andy Serkis is a gift to the world and the Emmys should not ignore him or this show! Another great one and I can only imagine what we have in store for the final two. LET'S GO!
Andor with Candor: S01E09 - "Nobody's Listening"
Greetings fellow Warring Star friends! Hope everyone had a great Halloween! A new episode of Andor came out today so I thought - why not do the same thing I do every Wednesday and talk about it! So I did!
I really enjoyed this episode and I think next week is going to be a great one based on what was set up today. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!
Andor with Candor: S01E08 - "Narkina 5"
Greetings from planet Earth! I come to you today with the assumption that someday, many many years from now this podcast will be transmitted through space to another planet. And then the (obviously cool) person who listens to this can be asked - hey where did you find such amazing entertainment?
And that person can respond, oh this? This is from a long time ago, from a galaxy far, far away....
Get it!? Took me long enough, but I think I landed that....Enjoy the show!
Andor with Candor: S01E07 - "Announcement"
Happy Wednesday fellow nerds! I'm back with another Andor with Candor covering the latest episode of that Disney+ Series....not the one about the musical show about a musical show - though there was some upbeat music in this one. Nope, I'm talking about the latest episode of Andor that I thought was - well in one word - great! Now go make yourself a tuna fish sandwich, crack open a can of Moxie, and listen to me as I attempt to talk Andor without going off on too many tangents. Spoiler, I fail at that last part.
Andor with Candor: S01E06 - "The Eye"
Sure I'm a couple days late - but the important thing is...I survived driving my mother-in-law to Florida and staying with her a couple days. And even more important is I'm here now, the last morning of my "vacation" talking about the latest episode of Andor - a great one that I think closes the door on another little story arch. Let's go!
Andor with Candor: S01E05 - "The Axe Forgets"
Well here we are - the last episode of Andor....before I drive down the East Coast of this country I live in with my mother-in-law to a place called...Florida. Pray for me. Oh and I talk about the episode too - which was a really good one even with not all that much happening. Just goes to show how good acting and good characters can carry a show just as much as a fun explosion can....
Andor with Candor: S01E04 - "Aldhani"
Is it Wednesday already? Prince Spaghetti Day? Hump Day? Survivor Day? And now (again) Andor Day! Today we get our first look at what might be in store for Andor for the rest of the season (or at least the next few episodes) and we get a wider look at the birth of the Rebellion as well as a smaller, less glamorous peak at the Empire. And I sing again.
Andor with Candor: S01E03 - "Reckoning"
After this episode, it makes perfect sense to me why they grouped these first three episodes together. This third episode really feels like the jumping off point for the series, leaving some of what we've established behind and gearing up for the adventure that lays ahead. This was probably my favorite of the three episodes too! Today's pod was recorded late, up at my mother-in-law's and with no notes....What a treat for all of you. Enjoy!
Andor with Candor: S01E02 - "That Would Be Me"
I told you I'd be back again today! Back to talk more Star Wars! Back to talk more Andor! Back to discuss the second of the three episodes that premiered yesterday. Two in and I am still enjoying it. I am looking forward to see where it's going and see how we eventually get to where Andor ends up. And look forward to doing this again tomorrow!
Andor with Candor: S01E01 - "Kassa"
The Man is back! The Mandalorian Man that is - and I'm here today to NOT talk about the Mandalorian! No today was the day that ANDOR premiered on Disney+ and over the next three days I will be bringing you new episodes where I discuss each of this three-part premiere. So sit back, relax, or don't. But listen. You must listen. Actually I am ordering you to listen - so do the right thing.....and enjoy!
Obi-Pod Kenobi: Part VI
Well, jeez - wasn't that a nice, satisfying ending? I really do think so. There were some nice payoffs and some nice surprises that I was hoping to see. Is this the end? Possibly. Could there be more? Also possibly? Will I watch and podcast about it if there is? Definitely. Party on Wayne! Party on Garth!
I have no idea why I added that - it just felt right.
Obi-Pod Kenobi: Part V
No doubt, this was my favorite episode so far. So much happened and yet most of the episode took place in one main setting. We got flashbacks. We got some awesome force power. We got more light sabers. We got more stormtroopers easily killed. We got more Vader. We got more Anakin. And we have a great little tease that I did NOT see coming for what is coming in the finale.
One good thing about me waiting so long to watch these episodes is that now I only have to wait until tomorrow morning to watch the last one! Let's Gooooo!!!!!
Obi-Pod Kenobi: Part IV
I have no excuses. Wait is laziness and prioritizing podcasts I work on excuses? If so then I have two excuses. But I finally watched Part IV and I look forward watching Part V tomorrow. Yup, better to catch up as late as possible than not catch up at all! GO STAR WARS!
Obi-Pod Kenobi: Part III
I know, I know. How can I only be up to episode 3 of this show!? Episode 4 is already out!! I promise to be caught up on things soon, but until then I hope you enjoy as I talk about this pretty amazing episode.
Obi-Pod Kenobi: Part II
Welcome back Warries! Or is it Warrers? Is there a cute nickname for Star Wars fans like those snobs over on the Trek side of things get? Them and their Scott Bakula?? Wait where was I? Oh yeah, I finally watched Part II of Obi-Wan Kenobi. This definitely felt like the second half of a two-parter that I probably should've watched alongside the first one. But I didn't. And I'm still behind.
Don't worry I will catch up. This is a shorter one - but I think I cover just about everything I could think of whilst pacing around my kitchen and lavatory (just pacing, not using). Live long and prosper!
Obi-Pod Kenobi: Part I
Hello there! It's time for more wars in the stars! This time we go back before the originals but after the prequels, so a sequel to the prequel and yet a prequel in its own rights. Who cares - Ewan McGregor is back after all these years Obi-Wan Kenobi and I finally watched the first episode. There were DEFINITELY some storyline, characters, and actors I was not expecting - so it was a cool surprise for me. I like where the show is going and look forward to watching and talking about every episode! So I will do just that - hope you come along for the ride!
The Pod Of Boba Fett – Chapter 7: In the Name of Honor
Mike is back to talk about the season finale of “The Book of Boba Fett” – Chapter 7: In the Name of Honor. In this final chapter in Boba Fett’s book (at least for now) we get some fighting and some familiar faces. While there weren’t any jaw-dropping reveals, I think it does a nice job of ending one story while setting some things up for the future of a few of our characters. And there are lasers.
Mike also makes an announcement about the future of this podcast (don’t worry kids, he’s not going anywhere).
This is goodbye for now, but Mike looks forward to talking to you again. Until then, May the Force be With You!
The Pod Of Boba Fett – Chapter 6: From the Desert Comes a Stranger
Mike is back to talk about the most recent episode of The Book of Boba Fett, Chapter 6: From the Desert Comes a Stranger. This episode answers the question, can you have an episode with Boba Fett in it but still have it have almost nothing to do with Boba Fett? Spoiler - yes. Does that means I disliked it? Hardly!
The Pod Of Boba Fett – Chapter 5: Return Of the Mandalorian
Mike is back to talk about “Chapter 5: Return Of the Mandalorian” in which we get a spin-off of the spin-off as our favorite Mando gives us a little insight on to what he's been up to and what he will be up to. I think.
The Pod Of Boba Fett – Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm
Mike is back to talk about “Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm” in which we get a lot of backstory that shows us Boba and Fennec's meet cute, how Boba got his ship back, and spends a few minutes progressing the current storyline forward - with a fun little tease...
The Pod Of Boba Fett – Chapter 3: The Streets of Mos Espa
Mike is back to talk about "Chapter 3: The Streets of Mos Espa" in which we get more of that Wookie, more of those Hutts, a failed assassination attempt, a new group of young folk I'm calling "Boba's Bunch," and a Stephen Root. That and more in this war of stars!
The Pod Of Boba Fett – Chapter 2: The Tribes of Tattooine
Boba is back with his Bacta's and Bathers, his Tuscans and Train chases, his....I don't want to spoil it but we saw two very familiar species in this episode. There was fighting and chasing and all that fun stuff. You know - STAR WARS stuff! Happy 2022 everyone!
The Pod Of Boba Fett – Chapter 1: Stranger in a Strange Land
For years Star Wars fans have been imagining Boba Fett survived his little tumble into the Sarlacc Pit. Last year, the Mandalorian made those dreams come true and today we got to see just how Lord Fett got out with this life! Welcome to "The Pod of Boba Fett," a seven part series covering the new Disney+ series, "The Book of Boba Fett."
Today the first episode of this new show premiered Chapter 1: Stranger in a Strange Land and I couldn't wait to talk all about it. New Star Wars content! Yay!!!
