In the spirit of this auspicious day, we rank the good Star Wars movies, shout out our favorite Expanded Universe entries, compliment George Lucas, explain why Jar Jar might just be better than Chewie, and Evan passes a Star Wars QUIZ!

...Wait, what was that fourth one?

To find out, watch Hard Truths with Doug and see if you don't view everyone's least favorite Gungan in a slightly different light.

In our final Very Special Episode, we join Teddy and the Bassman once again for a grand two-parter. This time, we play a couple more standard games. In our episode, hear us try to outwit the great sayings of the ages in Wise and Otherwise, then listen to T&tB's half where we play everyone's favorite awful game: Cards Against Humanity.

When there are tigers on the hill...

We're more than 40 episodes in and we realized that even though we have shared a bunch of stuff about ourselves with you guys, you don't really KNOW us. Let's fix that! Come get to know us! Carissa issues a challenge to the listeners - that's you - to answer some or all of our Getting to Know You questions and email them to us.

Also, this week we're priming the pump for the upcoming Podcast Awards! Click the link or visit www.podcastawards.com to nominate Lucky 10,000 in the Games and Hobbies category and also for a People's Choice Award.

We would love to win an award for you guys, so vote early, vote often! (Or at least early, since you can only vote once and nominations close April 30.)

Recorded live from the Steampunk Library, we proudly present Part Two of our collaboration with fellow Bearded Pods cast Teddy and the Bassman. Evan and Carissa play some fun games and wax philosophical with the whimsical pair, celebrating the chance to record together in one physical location.

To hear the other half of the evening's festivities (namely: the Room 101 Game), you will want to listen to Teddy and the Bassman's latest episode, found here.

We get into close encounters of all kinds this week on The Lucky Ten Thousand. Well, really just the alien kinds. UFOs, extra-terrestrials, string theory: it's all here. Come with us on a universal adventure. We promise not to anally probe you. Unless you're into that.

Recorded live in Evan's studio, our intrepid hosts are back together again in a face-to-face encounter of their own for the first of a series of very special episodes from the Bearded Pods Network. Stay tuned for more!

This week Evan and Carissa solve gender relations!

OK, not really, but we do discuss some of the more prevalent issues between the genders within the overarching geeky communities - most specifically in gaming culture.  While we won't be winning any Peace Prizes for our contribution here, we take a moderate, common sense, humanitarian look at some of the misapprehensions, misunderstandings, and misogyny that plague games and geek ventures in general.  Sparked by a particularly egregious incident at the Dota 2 Shanghai Major tournament, Carissa explains both of the friendzones (and how to get out of them) before tackling a more serious problem.

Remember, you don't need to be a White Knight to be a decent human being. Warning: some offensive language presented.

Evan was the last person on Earth to watch Firefly and now he gets to share with us the joy of being the lucky one.  Lamentable as the show's premature cancellation is (damn you, Fox!), most of us have had the better part of a decade to mourn its loss while he is finding himself in the throes of new grief. Like most of us, the only closure he can really find is from incessantly going over all the great things we can only ever enjoy on rewatching.

You can't take the sky from me.

Attention grammar nerds and logophiles: this one's for you! Reformed grammar nazi Carissa opens up her ever-expanding list of adult vocabulary words to share them with Evan - and you, our faithful listeners. Evan, in turn, shares a very few choice examples of the words with which Shakespeare graced us. We even toss in a few from across the seas, because what would a talk about English be if it didn't include some linguistic pilfering? This is an episode far shorter than it could have been, all about the collection of sounds which make up the lovely, thieving, sadomasochistic English language.

You know all those "little details" movie and tv producers just get WRONG? The ones that make your otherwise enjoyable movie or tv show slightly less enjoyable - or worse, downright unwatchable? Yeah those. This week we bring back fan favorite friend of the show Winston to help us ruin your movies for you by pointing out all the things in some of our favorite (and least favorite) productions which the makers just screwed up. Covering editing mistakes, historical inaccuracies, and just plain fuck-ups, we leave no sacred cow untipped.

What are your pet peeve mistakes from movies or TV? Email us, tweet at us, or leave a 5-star review to have your grievances aired.

Humans are portrayed in most extra-terrestrial science fiction as puny, weak, insignificant, and utterly outclassed by any and all offworld explorers who happen upon them. This week, Carissa and Evan ask: what if humanity isn't a pile of crap but is, instead, terrifying and bewildering to our galactic neighbors? Maybe we are the horror movie villain of ET's nightmares, and we set out to explain why we might not be the primitive hairless apes of most modern science fiction.

Humanity! Fuck yeah!
