Return to Vader’s Castle, Return to Resistance – The Blockade Runner Podcast #126

BR 126 CoverThis week’s show is all about comics and cartoons! For the comics side of things, we run down the Marvel Star Wars news coming out of NYCC 2019, take a look at some recently announced Star Wars manga, and share our thoughts on the first two Return to Vader’s Castle issues from IDW as well as Star Wars: Allegiances #1 from Marvel. The second half of the show is devoted to discussing the first two episodes of Star Wars Resistance‘s final season before we wrap with a few minutes on Freddie Prinze Jr.’s recent (brilliant) viral monologue.

Hello There Resistance Trailer, Obi-Wan Rumors – The Blockade Runner Podcast #117

BR 117 CoverAfter what has felt like a considerable draught in major Star Wars news this summer, this week’s show is packed with rumors and speculation about The Rise of Skywalker, Rian Johnson’s upcoming Star Wars film series, a possible (likely?) return to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi for Ewan McGregor in a Disney + series, and our reactions to the Star Wars Resistance season two trailer. So much to cover and quite a lot to say about each topic in this extra-large episode of the Blockade Runner Podcast.

Ryan’s audio this week is coming from Skype as his local recording malfunctioned, so if you notice that it sounds a little off, that’s why and we’re working on it and will hopefully have things back to normal next week.

Resistance Recap & Look Ahead (Buff Salacious Crumb) – The Blockade Runner Podcast #86


br 86 cover

Resistance is back from it’s mid-season hiatus and Ryan is all caught up after taking a bit of a break from the show himself, so we’ve dedicated this episode to reviewing and discussing the show from episode #5 (“The High Tower”) all the way through the most recent episode, #13 (“Dangerous Business”). We also chat about the mid-season trailer, “Buff Salacious Crumb,” Resistance toys and our frustration with the difficulty of tracking down 3.75″ figures lately, and DIY movie poster light boxes.

Resistance Premieres! – The Blockade Runner Podcast #78

BR 78 Cover

This week’s episode is all about the premiere episode(s) of Star Wars Resistance. Ryan and John discuss “The Recruit,” “Triple Dark,” and “Fuel for the Fire,” all of which are live on the Disney Now app. Our discussion primarily focuses on the characters, visuals, and tone of the show, so the “spoilers” are minimal (though you may still want to wait to listen until you’ve seen all three episodes). We also talk about the show’s potential, what we’d like to see from it going forward, blue snaggletooths, and why Resistance would make is the perfect property for new Star Wars video games!
