Back to the Eighties - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi - Commentary

With the release of Rogue One closer than ever, it's time to watch the last film in the original trilogy, and ask ourselves honestly, were the Ewoks THAT bad? Really?

Spoiler - they're not. No matter what Simon Pegg said in Spaced.

Back to the Eighties - Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back - Commentary

It is a dark time for the Rebellion. 

With that in mind, it's time to watch The Empire Strikes Back, relax, and enjoy watching our favourite Rebel Alliance take on the evil Galactic Empire, and this time, lose.

Spoiler alert - Darth Vader turns out to be Luke's dad.

(Also, Paula had to duck out halfway through this one as she needed to sleep - she'll be back for Return of the Jedi though!)

This week we've got ANOTHER special guest! This time around it's Manga Girl herself, Harriett Greene, joining Glenn, Sam and Paula to talk about wrestling, not just in the 80s, but through the New Generation, Attitude, Ruthless Agression and the New Era of wrestling that we have today!
