After a brief flurry of discussion on Westworld (00:36), Bond 25 (04:47), and Deadpool 2 (06:21), the guys dig in to Solo: A Star Wars Story (11:19). They… kinda liked it, for the most part. But had some issues. It’s fine. Lucasfilm’s spin-offs are still floundering with a lack of direction, but it’s fine. Sabacc was better in the books, and the script was middling. But it’s fine. Good characters at least. Looking at you, Rogue One. Next week: Tragedy Girls (2:03:40).
It’s almost time for new Star Wars, so Marco and Benji are looking back at the original Star Wars, AKA Episode IV — A New Hope. We’re fascinated by the weird galaxy George Lucas created at least partly by accident. Much love for Han Solo and Obi Wan Kenobi within. Luke is basically a space hick, and the Rebellion is remarkably chill about letting people into their secret base.
