Remember Star Wars: Episode One Racer, the futuristic F-Zero X/Extreme-G-esque racing game for the Nintendo 64? Well…we’re not looking at that game. We’re looking at the Game Boy Color port of Star Wars: Episode One Racer.
We make internet history this week as we dedicate an entire episode to saying nice things about the Star Wars prequel trilogy. In the spirit of the holidays and good cheer, we challenge ourselves to come up with 20 things that the prequel trilogy does well.
Also… What are the lyrics to “Duel of the Fates”? Is Star Wars part of The Matrix? Just how awesome are Samuel L. Jackson and Christopher Lee?
A long time ago in a continuity far, far away… Dark Horse Comics made a TON of Star Wars comics, more than 500 of ’em. And they kicked the whole thing off with Dark Empire, a story where Luke turns to the Dark Side.
Apparently, this thing was so important that all the Star Wars novels from the 90’s kept referencing it, so we decided to read it and see what all the fuss was about. Join us as we ask the questions: Is Leia a trucker? Is the Emperor a vampire? Is Boba Fett good at anything?

This week marks the release of The Martian, a film about an astronaut stranded on Mars. In honor of that premise, all your friends are discussing their favorite space movies and playing a game that will involve selecting a team for a rescue mission of their own.
Topics include: the twist ending of Captain EO, the many facets of the Spaderverse, and whether or not a Jedi can control a Xenomorph.
