But her desire to fight the evils of the Empire and protect those who need it will lead her right to Bail Organa, and the Rebel Alliance….

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Samuel L. Jackson episode features a great interview with the actor covering his early life, the film career, how he met his wife, working with Spike Lee, auditioning for Reservoir Dogs, the N-word, guns, what he looks for in a role, what the ‘L’ stands for, Snakes on a Plane and The Hateful Eight. It offers a lot of insight on the actor and the host of the show does a really good job with the interview. Definitely worth a list.

Awards Chatter: J.J. Abrams episode has an interview with the director of The Force Awakens. They talk about Armageddon, Felicity, Star Trek, Star Wars and sequels. It’s an interesting interview, not as good as the Samuel L. Jackson one, but still interesting.

Bombad Radio: Episode 220 is their second roundtable of TFA discussion. Listening to this episode, I’ve come to realize that there are now two types of The Force Awakens discussions developing, which appears to be forming a gap in Star Wars fandom. On one side, there is the positive discussion of the film, and on the other, there’s the negative discussion of the film. Sadly, Bombad Radio is falling into the negative camp. As someone who thoroughly enjoyed the film, I found this episode very painful to listen to as some of the hosts enthusiastically commenced at tearing the movie apart and reveling in their criticisms of it. If you watched the movie and you had some gripes with it, and you’d like to listen to other people’s gripes, then this is the episode for you. As for me, I’m going to refrain from listening to any more TFA discussion on Bombad Radio as it just isn’t enjoyable for me. The negativity far outweighed any positive commentary. While there are legitimate criticisms, it’s not something I want to wallow in for an hour and a half. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
