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.

We wrap up the show with Ryan’s endorsement of the Flight of the Falcon book series and our Episode IX Return of the Jedi 2 title predictions.

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!
