PCR #42 - The Nostalgia Strikes Back

December 23rd, 2015

A short time ago, in a recording room far, far away.....

Travis & Xavier are back as they look back at the original trilogy of the Star Wars universe!  They start off by remembering what the franchise means to them, their first memories, how it's impacted their lives as kids and as adults.  They then break down the original trilogy of A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.  They take a look at the characters, cast, settings, music, all while trying to not let the "Special Editions" get in the way of the classics.  They take a look at some good fan theories, the Star Wars Vs Star Trek fandoms, and try to figure out how everyone understands alien languages.  Who really played Darth Vader?  Do Droids have souls?  How awkward was it when Luke & Leia kissed?  What all does Vader choke?  They also rip into the prequels and try to find any redeeming qualities from them (spoilers: they don't find any).  Also, listen as Xavier starts to break down into an emotional mess as he recollects the most heartbreaking death in the entire series.  If you're a Star Wars fan, you definitely don't want to miss this one!  May the Force be with you!
