Canned Air #213 Star Wars: Return of the Nerd with James Rolfe, The Angry Video Game Nerd!

We welcome James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd) back to the show this week to help us ring in the Star Wars holiday season by talking all things Star Wars! 

 
To bring some balance to the opinions of the first six Star Wars movies, we first take a look at the prequel trilogy and find the good things to emerge from them. Despite the overwhelming amount of criticism they receive, they answer the many questions unaddressed by the original trilogy. 
 
We then take a look at the original trilogy to find some of the flaws overlooked, or ignored, by Star Wars fans over the years. As perfect as those movies are, they still have the moments that make some of us cringe. I mean, Chewie yelling a Tarzan call? Come on!
 
Then we discuss our opinions of what we are expecting from the next Star Wars installment, The Last Jedi. With The Force Awakens having echoed A New Hope so much, we take a look at The Empire Strikes Back for predictions of what to expect. 
 
So throw in some headphones, grab your lightsaber, and swing it wildly around the room as we direct the greatest sci-fi adventure of all time, STAR WARS!!!

We explore two categories: the best Villain stuck in a bad movie, and the best fight scene in a movie. We reached out to our Twitter followers for their opinions and then weighed them against our own. Get in here and see if we list any of your favorites!

Greetings to you loyal listener! Comic creator Ben Grisanti joins us to first help us remember some of the best slasher movies and icons in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Having just been Friday the 13th, and with Halloween upon us, it seemed fitting to pay tribute to the best supernatural slashing serial killers!
 

The we talk with Ben about Polybius Dreams, his comic that is currently running on Kickstarter until Nov. 11th. The town of Autumn Hill is shocked by the death of a high school boy, and while the adults search for a reason, a mysterious visitor arrives in town. Jimmy and Jamie, owners of the local arcade, witness a noticeable change in their customers. Meanwhile, Patrick, Paul, and Michael think they might know what the source of the discord is. Will they be able to intervene before another young life is lost? This is a great comic you won’t want to miss. Check out Chapter 1, and don’t miss your chance to back Chapter 2 on Kickstarter!

We also discuss what might happen if we woke up one day and the internet was gone. How would we react? Mass Hysteria? More than likely. So get in here and help us ask, What If?The Internet Never Existed?!
