Yet Another Star Wars Podcast: The Empire Strikes Back


Join Anders, Colleen and Daniel as we parkour through the swamps of Dagobah to discuss Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back! We discuss how this film is so perfect that even George Lucas hasn’t felt the need to completely redo it through edits. We all agree that this is our favorite Star Wars movie, is more or less the perfect example of a sequel, and that Han and Leia are ON FIRE throughout this film.


This movie does a great deal to expand on our concept of Force and how the galaxy fares under the rule of the Empire. We laugh about the pitfalls of retcons with Luke and Leia’s twincest kiss.


As always, we end with our recommendations for content you might like if you are a fan of ESB.
