The original Star Wars Trilogy is broken down and covered with deep insights, fan theories and even cold hard statistics. It's been bottled up and it comes spewing out right here and now.
On a side note, reading that title -- 'The Actual Star Wars Show' makes me feel like I am making the claim that this is a show that is somehow sanctioned by Disney, like some Star Wars show that no one knew about had snuck on to the interwebs on the weekend of The Rise of Skywalker and released an actual Star Wars show in podcast form. I am not making that claim at all. But now thinking about it in that way, it makes me like the title more, but feeling that makes me feel like we're being cheap; like it is complete click-bait and I have become the very enemy that we set out to fight. If it comes off that way --that the title is just click bait -- that is not at all how it was intended. This is Nick and Chris doing a show about Star Wars, and just referencing something a listener would understand which makes the title now sound pretentious and full of itself as if I'm some gatekeeper of entertainment and only the cool kids are allowed and that super cool joke just flew over your noob head. I really should, at this point, just change the damn title. God I hate writing on the internet.
