norse-legion-logoThere was a lot of stuff to check out at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim and just as many goodies for sale. Yet in recent weeks Norse Legion has caught my eye with their line of Star Wars jewelry, so I knew that was one booth I was going to stop by. As luck would have it, I left Celebration not with one ring, but two.

First up, the “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” Spinner ring. Continue Reading Norse Legion Ring Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. I’m putting this one out a day early since I’m heading out to Star Wars Celebration. Enjoy!

Bombad Radio: Episode 193 features Jeremiah and guests Jesse and Amanda as they discuss Neil Blomkamp and his Aliens sequel. They also talk about District 9, Prometheus, Alien 3, Alien vs. Predator and Alien vs. Predator: Requiem. They had a good topic for the episode, sadly it didn’t turn out the best. The audio is very weird (which Jeremiah apologizes for) which makes it kind of hard to listen to and enjoy. While I didn’t really agree a whole lot with their thoughts on the movies, I did appreciate their discussions of the comics as I haven’t checked those out.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode #34 starts with some Rogue One discussion, a dose from the Bearded Trio, and then segues into their main topic with is a very fun conversation with the hosts of Skywalking Through Neverland. Sarah and Richard talk about how they met, how they got started in podcasting, and the extents of their Star Wars fandom. The episode wraps up with some listener feedback, and puts a bow on another great episode.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #18 covers Rogue One, their Celebration shirts, shoutouts, and what panels and events they have going on at Celebration. Then they talk with Ashley Eckstein about Ahsoka, Her Universe and Celebration. Amy Ratcliffe comes on to talk a little about Celebration, and they finish things off with a character discussion on bounty hunters and Cad Bane. Another awesome episode with great guests and great discussion. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Movies The Ruin Childhoods” kicks off with Amy’s report from Paleyfest including stuff on Outlander, Flash, Arrow and Tron. As an aside, I’m kinda surprised by how apathetic they were toward Tron: Legacy. Scott hasn’t seen it, Jeff didn’t like it, and Amy is the only one who did enjoy it. I, on the other hand, really enjoyed the new Tron. Beyond that, they also talk about Guardians of the Galaxy and Groot’s aversion to dancing in front of Drax, Agent Carter comments about the future, J.J. Abrams’ comments, the 20 new books for Journey To Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: Aftermath, and the female Ghostbuster movie. Their main discussion is on whether movies can ruin your childhood and the use of phrase as of late, which is an interesting topic. They also touch on whether or not we’re heading for a superhero burnout.

Our Very Own Marvel Civil War” starts off with a discussion of Pixels and the recently released trailer before heading into a March Madness tournament discussion for Marvel characters. They start out with a bunch of character, have them face off against each other, then each hosts/guest says which one should win. Whoever gets the most votes proceeds to the next round until there’s an ultimate victor. I have to be honest, it runs a bit long. At first it was neat, but as it dragged on, the discussion struggled to keep my interest. I think it might have worked better as a smaller segment spread out over several episodes rather than doing it all at once.

Fish’s End, Leia’s Story & Supergirl’s Costume” begins with some discussion on the new Avengers trailer, the Groot comic, and thoughts on Gotham and Toy Story 4. Then they have guest Jenna Busch on to talk about Princess Leia #1, and guests Andy Behbakht (The Flash Podcast) and Rebecca Johnson (Supergirl Radio) to talk and speculate about The Flash television show and the upcoming Supergirl show. I didn’t enjoy this episode as much. For starters, Princess Leia #1 was one of the worst Star Wars comics I’ve read in a while so there was a disconnect there. That in turn wasn’t helped too much by their next guests as I haven’t watched The Flash. Wasn’t a whole lot for me to connect with on this episode. However, if you enjoyed Princess Leia #1 and are a fan of The Flash, you’ll probably enjoy it. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Coffee With Kenobi: Coffee Chat with James Arnold Taylor is a fun one as James talks about Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, The Comlink, Star Wars Weekends, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Cory and Dan present just the right atmosphere which results a in a very casual and entertaining conversation with James. A great episode for your Star Wars playlist.

Special Edition: Indiana Comic Con includes a lot of guests as they talked to multiple people at the convention including Princess Leia comic writer Mark Waid, blogger Amy Ratcliffe and more. They talk about their experiences at the con, and share their stories about meeting Carrie Fisher. And speaking of Carrie Fisher, afterwards they have the audio of her panel.

Dead Talks: The Walking Dead season finale has already aired, but I’m still catching up with the podcast. In Episode #36 they cover “Spend”, tackle how Rick’s group might be a bad influence for the people of Alexandria, Carol’s evolution as a character, Abraham finding his place in the community, and the horror Glen witnesses. Quite simply, I love this podcast. I can’t believe how much my Walking Dead fandom was missing out on. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
