Episode Notes

This week, we return to a galaxy far, far away for our next in-depth Star Wars discussion, and after going through all three prequels in previous episodes, we finally arrive at the film that started it all: Star Wars, also known as Episode IV: A New Hope. Unlike the prequels, this film neither demands nor requires a critical reevaluation – it’s great, it’s always been great, and most people who have ever seen a movie agree with that – but there are still plenty of avenues to follow in discussing what makes this such a joyous, singular, perfectly imperfect cinematic revelation, and it makes for a fun chat about one of our favorite movies. Jonathan also talks about his recent trip to Iowa, Sean talks a little more Norse mythology, and we go over some recent Nintendo and Xbox news to round out the episode.
