It’s finally here – the inspiration for the Nerd Lunch podcast convening a panel to re-watch six Star Wars movies and discuss them and pretty much all the Star Wars books. CT, Pax, Jeeg, Michael May and I sit down to process our feelings after watching The Force Awakens.

Did Jeeg actually watch the same movie as the rest of us? What questions did it leave us with? With our varied entrances and investments into the Star Wars franchise can we all like it?

You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out. Pros, cons, and stumbling upon the next generation of The Yoda Tapes – there’s a lot of space to cover and we have a hyperdrive that always works when we need it to. There may even be a smidgen of speculation in the episode too.

After you check it out, you can read more of my thoughts on the new chapter of a beloved saga in my review: Passing the Torch: The Force Awakens Reviewed as well as hear even more on Hyperspace Theories Episode 15.

Still have more to say, do you? Yes, yes I do. Watch this site for future episodes of Hyperspace Theories where we’ll break down many storytelling elements of Episode VII in the weeks and months ahead. Articles on concepts from the movie and real-world effects will be coming this way too.
