All New Showcase Episode 319: Star Wars-The Force Marathon

AllNewShowcase2This weekend was the cultural event of the century, the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. To prepare for it, Blake and Erin spent a week watching and reviewing the first six Star Wars movies one-by-one, before finally finishing up with a massive spoiler-rich analysis of The Force Awakens. (Don’t worry, the spoilers don’t come until after they’ve discussed the other six movies.) In this extra-sized episode, they talk about everything they love — and hate — about the seven movies of the Star Wars saga.

And what’s cool this week? While Erin is still too enraptured by Star Wars to think of another recommendation, Blake is there to talk about the first half-season of CBS’s Supergirl and the first issue of IDW’s Mickey and Donald Christmas Parade.
