    Sucks now that AMC is just a sponsor they stopped doing all the audio podcasts. Loved listening to their stuff while driving to work. I guess it’s back to Rebel Force Radio.

    I was wondering why there as no episode last week. I didn’t realize there was a transition in the works. I was waiting for tomorrow for the next one. Are they posting the video on Tuesdays now under Collider? Glad they are back. I’ll be watching tonight.

      The show was on this Tuesday because of the crews Comic Con schedule. Collider Jedi Council will then go back to their normal Thursday show schedule the following week.

    This was a great episode!
    ( I think the AMC “red” worked better than this ghastly “Collider Green” though on the Jedi Council logo ).
    That said, I am glad John Campea shot down that ( as of now ) completeley bogus story about Donnie Yen being in Episode 8.

    It’s amazing how many other sites ran with this story as being fact without any questioning of the source article, so I’m glad that John – as always – has a discerning eye and is able to sort the wheat from the chaff.

    Much as I like these guys, the fact that ALL the female panelists have been ditched is unfortunate. It’s not the sort of message we should be sending in this day and age!

      Shut up.

        Whoa! A Neanderthal! I thought they were extinct!

          Whoa! Someone who doesn’t think for themselves. Your kind will always be around. As for the topic itself why do we have to have a checklist of what a podcast is supposed to have. Ridiculous.

      What happened to Maude or Amaudala as she called herself? Haven’t been watching lately.

      • July 9, 2015 at 9:03 am

        She works at Sourcefed and SourcefedNERD now. No time to do Jedi Council anymore, unfortunately. Although it would be nice to have a female presence/perspective, I really like the team of Kristian, Mark, and John.

      Didn’t they have a lady on like 2 weeks ago? I thought the cast was rotating pretty frequently.

    Some are still thinking that there will be a trailer at SDCC, but honestly, would Lucasfilm really screw EW to achieve that “before we go, here’s something special that you’ve all been praying for”?

    • July 9, 2015 at 9:05 am

      Agreed. I’m sure the behind the scenes video will be much cooler and more revealing than people think, though. I’m sure they plan to make it worthwhile for the people who camped overnight to get into Hall H.

        So it seems AFTERMATH is not what I was expecting – it seems to be a story about Wedge an a bunch of made up characters.
        It doesn’t sound like the important filling in of events between ROTJ and now, featuring all the established SW characters I had hoped for.

        That’s very disappointing.

    • July 9, 2015 at 5:51 am

      Neat! But once again, just little snippits of information and a “coming soon” tag. So now we have to wait for information that tells us bits and pieces about the film which we have to wait for longer.

      Patience, patience, I must learn patience!

    • July 9, 2015 at 9:19 am

      Oh wow! This had a whole bunch of information! I wonder if there will be another Del Rey sample booklet at SDCC, like they had at Celebration, with the first chapter of several more books that weren’t in the other sampler? Hmm…

      Either way, I’m actually really glad for that description of Aftermath! It already tells us a lot, like the fact that the Rebels indeed do become the New Republic, like they did in the old EU. It actually sounds very similar to the landscape of the universe at this same point in time in the old EU.

    Decent show. I agree with the guy who misses the radio show. I also liked listening to it in my car.

    I had a friend who actually knows people who work for Apple Daily and had told me before that the whole Donnie Yen thing was just a rumor story, so that was no surprise. Apple Daily has very little credibility.

    Overall, I like the show. I’m glad they have a strong voice in the Net-World. I like the panel, mostly because they seem to have good taste and good ideas about what would make a great Star Wars film… for example, they all seem to regard the prequels as sub-par.

    Hope SW production teams keep their ears open to these folk. They represent the average fans well.

    • July 9, 2015 at 8:46 pm

      Totally agree. These guys are class acts when it comes to their tastes in the franchise.
