Today we begin the run-up to The Force Awakens by discussing the Star Wars that broke a million geek’s hearts: The Phantom Menace. Special guest Zach Glenn joins us to enliven the conversation. The recording of this episode literally took hours so we’re releasing it in chunks. This episode only covers Act 1 of the Phantom Menace, from the opening crawl to the blockade run. Join us as we dissect this delightfully odd disappointment.
