Continuing our discussion of "Star Wars," the original film. We praise the jump to hyperspace, explain why TIE fighter pilots wear black, ponder how Han and Leia somehow turn up in an Aaron Sorkin scene, reveal why there is no Space OSHA, comment on Ben Kenobi's old man slippers and incomparable pseudonym, and expose the rebellion so rich it can have its own university and mint its own medals. (Part 2 of 2.)
Hosted by Jason Snell with special guests Dan Moren, John Siracusa, Scott McNulty, and Greg Knauss.
