Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

30 Minutes of Diabolical: Vol 3 | Session 6 is fully devoted to Boba Fett. They covering everything from a full ordinance rundown to elements of old Expanded Universe history. They talk about his first appearance in a parade, his deeds at Jabba’s palace, his fate in the sarlacc, and they steer clear of the prequels. I had two big gripes with the episode. First up, during the weapons segment, they had some really loud background music which made it hard to hear the two male hosts. My second gripe is that one of the hosts said “brother” a lot. And I mean a lot. Seriously, one out of three sentences included “brother”. Now I’m not sure if it was a gimmick or not, but I did try out another episode and the host did not say “brother” once, so if it was a gimmick, it did not work at all. If you’re a hardcore Fett fan, though, you might want to check this one out.

30 Minutes of Diabolical: Vol 2 | Session 29 focuses on the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Note this episode took play in December prior to The Force Awakens‘ release. They talk about the First Order 6″ Black Series figure, the Fargo TV series, then head in the EU. They cover Exar Kun, HK-47, Jaxxon, Thrawn, Mara Jade, the low points of the EU, and a lot of Shadows of the Empire. Kind of a fun trip down memory lane with the SWEU. This episode was a lot more enjoyable than the Boba Fett episode. The podcast doesn’t focus on Star Wars, so you’ll have to search for more Star Wars episodes, but it might be worth checking out.

Assembly of Geeks: Batman vs. Superman Round Table features a really nice round table discussion with guests Dan Z. (Coffee With Kenobi), Jeremiah (Bombad Radio), and Matt Moore (Comic Book Noob, Comics With Kenobi). They join Scott, Jeff and Amy as they talk about the movie, what they liked, didn’t like, and hope to see in the future. Excellent discussion and a close contender for pick of the week. If you’ve seen the movie, be sure to check this one out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 94 covers news, their thoughts on the Rogue One trailer which is kind of funny since they do it from an Imperial viewpoint, troop reports including a visit to the White House, upcoming events and more.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 010 goes back to Legends as they talk about EU books that are still worth reading, touching on different eras, and their favorites. Excellent episode for fans who want to get an idea of which books they should try out. They even touch on some of their favorite canon comics and novels.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 011 discusses lightsabers. From the light side to the dark side, their favorites, the colors, creating them and more. Nice discussion.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 012 goes over The Force Awakens Blu-ray special features and how low it compares to other special features. I have to agree, the special features for TFA were nothing to gloat about and were pretty disappointing. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
