Talking Bird

Psssst...hey kid, wanna hear two dudes talk about Star Wars for two hours? Cool.

The bird boys get light on news and heavy on conversation about Star Wars. Questions raised: are there enough ladies in the new Star Wars films, How do SW films rank in our personal top 10 favorite movies of all time. Is Lando Calrissian the most under utilized character in the SW universe. We also talk about Marvel Comic's new "Lando Calrissian" miniseries. Who else needs a miniseries? Robert confesses his age once again and Jon admits he doesn't read comics (aside from SW). Fun times. Get on the bandwagon.

This week the bird boys talk about the Star Wars Comicon 2015 video. They talk music, they talk about the value of "real sets" and "practical effects", they talk about their favorite things you might have missed. (if you haven't seen the video, go find it)
