  1. The Incomparable Episode 47: Death Star University

    Continuing our discussion of “Star Wars,” the original film. We praise the jump to hyperspace, explain why TIE fighter pilots wear black, ponder how Han and Leia somehow turn up in an Aaron Sorkin scene, reveal why there is no Space OSHA, comment on Ben Kenobi’s old man slippers and incomparable pseudonym, and expose the rebellion so rich it can have its own university and mint its own medals. (Part 2 of 2.)

    The Incomparable participants: Jason Snell, Scott McNulty, Greg Knauss, John Siracusa, and Dan Moren.

  2. The Incomparable Episode 46: I Like My Coffee Like My Evil Sith Lords

    “Star Wars,” the original film, is finally in our crosshairs, and if we can bulls-eye a Womp Rat we can take on this classic sci-fi film. We talk about our first memories of Star Wars, pretend the prequels didn’t happen, give Cantina drink-ordering tips, and marvel at Darth Vader’s coffee-drinking habits. (Part 1 of 2.)

    The Incomparable participants: Jason Snell, Scott McNulty, Greg Knauss, John Siracusa, and Dan Moren.
