PCR Chapter 132: This is the (Mandalorian) Way

December 28th, 2020

In this episode, Travis and Chris are back to finally review the smash-hit Star Wars live-action series, The Mandalorian.  Yes, spoiler alerts ahead!  They start off by giving their overall thoughts of the show from their own perspectives, followed by a breakdown of season 1 including thoughts on “the Child”, building their own lore, and how smart it was to try to distance themselves from the main Skywalker Saga.  After some praise for Jon Favreau, they go into the characters, the cast who plays them, the landscape of the show, and closing on a high note of a finale.  For season 2, they get right into all of the huge moments that made this season even better than the first.  From the live-action debuts of Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan, to the redemption story of Boba Fett, to the ultimate surprise in the finale, they touch on just about everything that they liked from the show.  They wrap up by trying to figure out where they go for season 3 and if it’s time for a shake-up to the status quo.  This one took a little longer to come out, but it’s a good one, so hit that download button and enjoy.  This is the way.
I have spoken.

PCR #128 - Revenge of the Clone Wars

May 25th, 2020

In this episode, Travis breaks down and reviews (with spoilers) the final season of Star Wars: Clone Wars.  He spends a little time recapping the first two story arcs, which deals with the "Bad Batch" of Clone Troopers, followed by the return of Ahsoka Tano and what happened to her after she left the Jedi Council in season five.  The real detailed review starts with the final four episodes, which deal with the "siege of Mandalore".  He goes into detail of how these episodes have a unique tone and style different from the rest of the series, the improved voicework, a new technique used in one sequence, and how it all ties-in to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.  He wraps up by giving his final thoughts on the season as a whole and the mastermind behind it all, Dave Filoni.

Download it, enjoy it, and "may the Force be with you.  Always."
