Talking Bird; The Special Edition Episode 72

After a week off, the Bird Boys return for all the Star Wars talk you can stand.

Robert & Jon see “Rogue One” for the third time and appreciate Donnie Yen & Forrest Whitaker’s performances even more than ever.

They talk about rumors of a CGI General Leia and Robert admits he’s just heard of the concept of “Uncanny Valley”.

They also discuss “Star Wars: Rebels” episodes “Ghosts of Geonosis” and “Warhead” and Marvel’s “Poe Dameron” issues 9 & 10.

That, and lots of Agent Terex talk on TB:TSE #72

Talking Bird: the Special Edition Episode 70

2016 has come to a close and we were able to get together one last time this year to release our 70th episode aka the “Rogue One” review show. This was the episode I’ve been waiting all year to record. I’ve been chomping at the bit to talk about the film since December 15th and was eagerly awaiting for Jon & my schedules to align. 

Carrie Fisher’s death has hit Star Wars fans hard. She was an amazing actor, writer and person. Her sense of humor and willingness to interact with fans made her an essential part of Star Wars, long after she had hung up her blaster.

Having her return to Star Wars after thirty years was a gift. Knowing we have one more opportunity to see General Leia in December 2017 is the closest thing to a “bright side” I can find. 

I hope our brief discussion of Carrie Fisher’s life and work at the top of the show can add in some small way to the countless tributes I have seen in the last day. I know we will continue to speak about Carrie in future episodes to come.

On behalf of Jon & myself, I would like to thank you for listening to our podcast this year and hope to see you in 2017.

Sincerely,

RZ

Talking Bird: The Special Edition Episode 69

On the cusp of the US release of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, Jon and Robert take a final pass at speculation and conversation about the first standalone Star Wars movie. 

Topics Covered: Gareth Edwards vs JJ Abrams as visual stylists. More reshoot talk. Vague “early buzz” from people who have seen it. The creatures of “Rogue One” and what we think of them. Reviews of Star Wars: Rebels episodes, “The Wynkathu Job”, “An Inside Man” and the mid-season finale, “Visions and Voices”. Shrimp.

This is probably the last TB of 2016. We will be back asap to give our thoughts on the movie. We hope it’s good. Thanks for listening.
