#skytalkersmachete: The Empire Strikes Back

Click here to download the episode directly now!

Our #skytalkersmachete series returns with the favorite, The Empire Strikes Back! We look at a listener email about Anakin’s virgin birth, and then get right into things. First, we discuss the story of the film; then, we talk character journeys. We ask: why is Luke so angry on Dagobah, as per Yoda? What do we think of the Han/Leia relationship as it is here? And finally, we talk about how this fits into the machete order since putting The Phantom Menace in front of it. We answer a ton of Twitter questions: we get into deleted scenes and the film’s initial reception. All this and more on this episode!

#skytalkersmachete: A New Hope

Click here to download the episode directly!

This edition of #skytalkersmachete is all about 1977’s Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. We spend some time responding to a listener email, then move into part 1, which is all about the film’s story. Part 2 really gets into the characters. We ask questions like: are these characters well developed? Why do we respond so much to these core characters? In part 3, we evaluate where this fits in in our updated Machete Order, which puts The Phantom Menace in the front. All this Star Wars discussion and more on this episode of Skytalkers: This Galactic Life!
