Lucky 10,000 A podcast for anyone who ever geeks out about anything.

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:

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!

Tomorrow, as we all know, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens hits general release. We were remiss in raging about the second two prequels, so we get that out of the way because we are people of our word.

Then Trivia! How much does Evan remember about the minutiae of the Star Wars movies? Carissa quizzes him to find out. Play along at home, test your own memory, and see if you get to feel smug about how much Star Wars trivia you know. With many huge thanks to the Geeks Who Drink for their inspiration from the Let The Wookie Win national pub quiz last Saturday.

Send us your quiz scores so everyone can be suitably impressed, or so others can maybe not feel so bad. :P

How's that for an episode title?

After three months, it is finally here: our long-awaited talk on the first of the Star Wars prequels.  Talked seemingly to death by nerds and film critics for 16 years now, we take a new stick to this horse and cover both the bad and the good that can be found in The Phantom Menace. And yes, Carissa argues, there is good to be found.

We play devil's advocate for haters, believers, and apologists alike.  Irrespective of how you feel about the prequels, there is almost sure to be something you hadn't thought of in our comprehensive geek-out over the first of the three least-beloved entries into the Star Wars oeuvre.
