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.

And if you want to see these quizzes for yourself, find them here:

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.

2015 is coming to a close and so, as we approach the beginning of the year when those born at the turn of the millennium will be driving cars, Evan and Carissa take a look back - as many others are doing - at the halfway point of the Twenty-Teens.

The best (and a couple of the worst) in science, tech, medicine, movies, tv, and games of the year all get a nod.  Then we take a look forward to hope for the best to come in the approaching year.  We know everyone is doing a year-in-review, but naturally we think ours is the best.

Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve celebration, everyone, and we'll catch you in a week!

Christmas is nigh, and our hosts take this opportunity to reach into the stocking and pull out all the random goodies they can find. We talk SPOILER-FREE about The Force Awakens, wax cautiously optimistic about the Warcraft movie, rant about the (not-so) casual racism in the prequels, contemplate fun things to do with Harry Potter's wang - er, wand - and have some general silliness with Star Wars Mad Libs.

Big shouts out to the gents at the Wikishuffle podcast and to the nerdcore group 2d6.

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

Holy crap, you guys, we made it to Episode 10!  We're throwing ourselves a party and of course you are invited!

For the Big One-Oh, we get into some serious nerd love for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Yes, we know, "everyone" loves the MCU, and we are no exception.  There are, however - as surprising as it seems - ten thousand people who don't know and love it already.  Maybe you happen to be one of them.  We won't judge, we just want to share how awesome we think the MCU is - not just the movies, but the full scope of the vast multimedia empire Marvel has been able to successfully build.

Please join us for our loving ode to one of the greatest filmographic undertakings of all time.
