Signal Boost #26: A Conversation about All the Star Wars

14 Nov

On today’s Signal Boosts, Shaun and Jen take a moment to squee about the fact that there are going to be THREE WHOLE NEW STAR WARS MOVIES AND A TV SHOW AND OMG! SQUEEEEEE!!! They’re moderately more coherent than that as they tackle what type of story Rian Johnson might tell. Then Jen moves them into both a squee about the new character, Rose, and a rant about jewelry.

And then we get to our subliminal messaging mini-boosts!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Fans have been asking for re-releases of the original theatrical versions of the Star Wars trilogy since the invention of the DVD. Aside from a couple of obscure, lower quality releases, we’ve yet to have our dreams fulfilled. Some of us would be willing to pay good money for these original films.

Enter this week’s poll. You know the drill. Vote!
