The Jedi were taught to not make any attachments, but Kanan told Ezra he had to be willing to attach to others. Kylo Ren told Rey to kill the past, but was that the best way for a Force user to progress? On Episode 106 we discuss the connections Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, Rey, Anakin Skywalker, and others had in the Star Wars galaxy, and effects these connections had on these characters.

Sep 8, 2019

Emperor Palpatine was an evil dictator who manipulated the Republic and formed the Galactic Empire, nearly wiped out the Jedi Order in the process, and seduced Anakin Skywalker to the Dark Side of the Force.

So why do Star Wars fans love this Dark Lord of the Sith so much?

Is the Emperor a better villain than Darth Vader?

What could the Jedi Order have learned from him? Was he a necessary evil or would the galaxy have been better off if he'd been stopped early on? 

What more can we learn from his possible return in The Rise of Skywalker

Alan and Ryder are live at Fan X (Salt Lake Comic Convention) and will discuss Emperor Palpatine's story arc throughout the Star Wars Saga.

Take that ridiculous thing off. Alan, Mark, and Ryder examine Kylo Ren from all angles on Episode 89. Was Kylo Ren justified in his reaction when he thought Luke Skywalker was going to kill him? What kind of kinship did he feel with Darth Vader? And when did he find out about his grandfather's history? Does Kylo Ren actually care about anyone besides himself? And do we feel any sympathy or empathy for this Knight of Ren? 

We also discuss some of our upcoming Fan X panels, Mark and Alan discuss home improvements, and Ryder daydreams. You know what you must do.
