    Another terrific episode. Tyrone Magnus is just too damn cool! I’m with him as far as the movies being ( for me ) what I consider canon. The rest of the stuff ( books, comics, etc. ) I lap them up for sure, but the films are what stand out for me as Canon.

    I think sometimes we get bogged down ( especially after the new canon implementation ) with what is canon and what is not, that it gets in the way of enjoying things.

    Canon is only important for the filmmakers and Star Wars creatives I’d say – inasmuch as they have to consider how one element may or may not marry up with another element across media.
    For the audience as a whole it should be largely unimportant – I go back to a topic the guys were covering the other day of a suggested BB-8 animated short – great idea but should it be considered “canon” they were saying.

    I say, who cares, just make a good story and enjoy it.

    Tyrone seems like a pretty cool guy. But, man, does this dude bring the momentum and energy level of the show down by about a thousand charisma points.

      It was painful at times to watch. It was like having me up there.

      I think he was just a little nervous. But both Kristian and John did their best to make him feel comfortable and draw him into the questions as best they could and he got a little better as the show went on.

      I’d rather this than have obnoxious people like Max Landis and Adi Shankhar on ( which Collider have had as guests on their “Heroes” show ).

      I’m sure if Tyrone is on again, he’ll unleash the Magnusite we all know and love.

        I definitely don’t mean it as a knock on the guy. The show just has a defined tempo and it gets lost if someone can’t find the groove.

        I have to echo the Max and Adi sentiments. One comes off as a petulant child and the other responded like he was on satellite delay. I ultimately appreciated their respective insights though. Contrarians should have their place at the table too 🙂

          Contrarians are good and welcome for sure, but these two didn’t contribute anything enriching. From my perspective, a good example of someone who is deeply knowledgeable but often has opinions in contrast with the Jedi Council crew is someone like Kyle Newman. Though I disagree with a lot of his points, I respect that he has a great insight into the subject of SW, and it’s good to hear his opposing views ( opposing views as far as I’m concerned ).

          I also disagree a lot with with Tiffany, but she is great on the show.

          Further guests I’d love to see are Jeremy Jahns, Chris Stuckmann, Hello Greedo, or Angry Joe.

          Justin Bolger has been my fave recurring guest so far, and his SW knowledge is impeccable.

        i find him to be extremely immature and childish. he also seems to always take the opposing point of view from what anyone else ever believes.. i don’t understand why he does that.

    One hour fifteen minutes? Couldn’t it be leaner?

    We entered a strange new era for SW that I don’t think anyone has quite come to terms with yet, One in which they may literally be making one film a year till we are all dead. I think it’s very hard to accept since we’ve gone years if not decades with anything new onscreen.

    I was little underwelmed by their knowledge in this episode. Republic Commando was a great game which gave Clone Troopers a character just like Clone Wars series did, and it was very good squad-based tactical shooter aswell. I’m not even fan of squad-shooters but I sure did enjoy that one. If Imperial Commando even stay on that level – it will be success.

    And kudos to Tiffany, she’s the real geek and I appreciate that.

    John can be such an obstinate nimrod sometimes. Luke’s modified voice over in the second teaser trailer is clearly not referring to Leia. He’s effectively saying, “my sister has the Force and so do you.” I can’t speak for anyone else, but I don’t talk ABOUT my sister TO my sister. Because that’s something only a crazy person does. He’s obviously addressing somebody new that we haven’t met yet.

    The name of the movie is ‘THE FORCE’ . . . . ‘AWAKENS’. What is Luke talking about with that line? He’s talking about ‘THE FORCE’ – in relation to his family – with respect to a new person – who is only now AWAKENING that power. Who in the movie best fits that description? This isn’t exactly quantum physics.
