Firstly let me lead off this post with a quick note... I screwed up. We had a discussion last week about potentially switching to the Season/Episode format for our show numbers. After the discussion we decided to go with continuing the bigger numbers is better format. Before the show I go out and double check to make sure what episode we are on... and apparently I look at the wrong episode. As a result I absolutely announced this week as 89 when it should have been 90. I feel strange about edits... largely because the format of our show is intended to be like listening in on an existing conversation. So for the time being I've decided to let my screw up stand... feel free to mock me.
On the week of Star Wars the Force Awakens release we actually had planned on recording a show on our feelings about the movie. The thing is... that we all for the most part loved the movie so much that we did not want to add to the spoilers on the internet. As a result we put off the show until a point where we felt it was "fair game". Upon coming back to work after New Years it seems like the internet has declared Star Wars spoilers open season, so as a result we decided to go ahead and record the show. What ended up happening is a show really unlike what I expected. It was far more critical than the hour and a half gush fest that I expected... but still from the point of fans talking about fandom.
Tonight we also welcome back Dallian and Neph for yet another "big show" which are starting to seem far more common this year.
