Gobbledygeek episode 258, “A Wretched Podcast of Scum and Villainy (feat. Kenn Edwards & Andrew Allen),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a filmmaker named George Lucas accidentally created a pop culture empire. Over the years, the Star Wars saga has gotten away from the man who conceived them, both figuratively and literally; the prequel trilogy is a classic example of an artist’s reach exceeding their grasp, and Disney is now making a new series without his involvement. Kenn Edwards of So Let’s Get to the Point and Star Wars zealot Andrew Allen join Paul and AJ for a wide-ranging discussion of Lucas’ saga, what it means to them, and what it’s really about, plus an artistic (and political) re-evaluation of Lucas himself.
Next: nothing says Christmas like Shane Black and pissing on a corpse, so ho ho ho, Kenn is back for this year’s Twisted Christmas entry: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
