Arc Reactions – 20 – The Star Wars

John here. As a teenager I was in love with anything Star Wars. I waited in line to get Episode I tickets in 1999 like so many others. When I heard that Dark Horse was publishing The Star Wars comic series that brings a rough draft of the original story to the page, I was waiting patiently for the story to be released. Now that the final issue is out, Dylan and I tackle this story and see what was different in this original version and what was the same. Join us as we discuss this peek into the past of a classic sci-fi franchise.

Before we go further, I’d like to point out a couple corrections i noticed when editing:

 

1) I forgot to mention IG-88 when talking about the bounty hunters. He was not in this story, but was on the bridge of the Executor with the other bounty hunters in Empire Strikes Back

2) I said the vote of no confidence for Chancellor Valorum was in Episode II. I looked it up and it was in Episode I.

 

I apologize for the mistakes. I was relying on my memory, which I guess isn’t as good as I thought it was.

Episode 6 – The Dark Knight “First Impressions” Review

Has The BAT Jumped The SHARK?

Well, here it is!! You’ve heard about it, you’ve read about it, now listen to this legendary episode for yourself!! Yes, friends, there actually were people that :gasp: DIDN’T LIKE The Dark Knight!!

Join The Freaks, Chris Honeywell and Scott H. Gardner, for their MOST CONTROVERSIAL EPISODE EVER (yes, even MORE controversial than the ancient astronauts episode!!) in which they treat Christopher Nolan’s so-called “epic” the way Ozzie Osbourne treats a bat’s head.

Yeah, yeah, they know — you LOVED it, right? The whole damned world loved it. But maybe now…..after the initial rush has worn off and you’ve come down off that Mountain Dew-induced nerd-high, maybe, just maybe, you can spot some of the chips and cracks in this current Caped Crusader’s nipple-free batsuit, too…

Or not…

ENJOY!!

Episode 3 – Star Wars: Episode VII – A “What if…?” Discussion

In this episode, the Freaks speculate on Star Wars: Episode VII !!

COULD there be one? SHOULD there be one? We discuss how we might make it. What would be the plot? What characters would we use or not use? What era would we set it in? What we’d LOVE to see!! What we’d HATE to see!!

NOTE: This episode was recorded LONG BEFORE Scott’s head-first dive into the Star Wars Expanded Universe. In fact, this discussion is what inspired him to do so!! Enjoy!!
