David and John discuss the Disney+ limited series Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi in full. They break down the fall of Count Dooku and the journey of Ahsoka. Then, they trade stories of the various animated Star Wars series they’re watching off the clock. Finally, David and John answer listener feedback on Andor that came in after the Season Wrap-up podcast.
David and John discuss Season One of Andor as a whole with the help of two great guests. First, they have an extended conversation with Maester Anthony of the Electric Bookaloo and Cocoon of Horrors podcasts about what made Andor so special compared to other recent media. Then, Marilyn R. Pukkila returns to discuss the hero’s journey and “saga heroes” in a bonus interview. Finally, David and John answer listener feedback.
Darth Vader would be pleased with our amount of faith in this show. Andor has its finger on the pulse of a rebellion with grounded characters, high stakes, and cool new ships. Get Jim and A.Ron’s overall impressions and deep dives for the Star Wars show we have been waiting for.
David and John discuss the Season 1 Finale of the Star Wars Disney+ show, Andor. The words of the dead lift up our cast of characters as they gather on Ferrix for a funeral to remember. David and John explore the similarities between Cassian and Luthen, the deception of Mon Mothma, and whether Dedra is moving in with Syril and his mom. Join us next week for our Season Wrap-up with Maester Anthony from the Double Dragon podcast!
David and John discuss Season 1, Episode 11 of the Star Wars Disney+ show, Andor. After an emotional recap of the events on Ferrix and Coruscant, they discuss one of the hottest topics in the galaxy: do we want a Jedi in Andor, and will we get one? With one episode left the stage is set for an incredible season finale. Finally, David and John answer listener feedback.
Due to popular demand, we decided to cover Andor for you. Disney+ has both delivered and disappointed on the Star Wars front. But could this be the Star Wars shows we have been waiting for? Did Andor push Jim over the edge? Find out in this episode of Off the Clock.
David and John discuss Season 1, Episode 10 of the Star Wars Disney+ show, Andor. David explains why he shed tears during the prison break and brings in connections with Rogue One. John can’t say enough good about Andy Serkis and Stellan Skarsgard. Overall, the Lorehounds agree this might be the best TV they’ve seen all year.
David and John discuss Season 1, Episode 9 of the Star Wars Disney+ show, Andor. Unlike Cassian, we’re hoping someone is listening to our scene-by-scene breakdown, our short lore segment on Saw Gerrera, and a transmission of listener feedback. Is this the darkest piece of Star Wars visual media yet? Will Karn ever learn personal boundaries?
David and John discuss Season 1, Episode 7: Announcement of Star Wars: Andor on Disney+. They marvel at how good an entire place setting episode can actually be. Then, they debate the best scene of the episode: Mon Mothma’s cocktail party, Cassian and Maarva’s conversation or Dedra Meero having her integrity publicly ventilated.
The season finale of The Book of Boba Fett didn’t exactly wow us despite a near-hour-long action sequence that includes pretty much every character that has ever appeared on screen in Star Wars or any other cinematic universe. (I think Goofy is even in the background somewhere.) Join us for a discussion about what worked and what didn’t, but if you’re a big fan of what’s been happening on Book of Boba this season… maybe skip this one.
