There is no possible way that Shipwreck can't understand the concept of Ms.  I work with many women who would rip your head off and call HR about sexual harassment if you continued to call them Miss.  People must be a lot more relaxed in Cincinnati than in the Northeast.


Definitely. Also, I think our pronunciation of it isn't as distinct so you wouldn't be able to easily tell the difference.

The top 10 NPD game sales don't include copies sold in bundles like the Star Wars PS4 bundle or the Fallout 4 Xbone bundle.


We said as much.

Thanks for listening, George Lucas. Big fan!

Great show guys, glad you are back!

Star Wars The Force Awakens was a bad Star Wars movie....there I said it.

As far as a movie goes, sure it was good. JJ and co created a video that appealed to a mass audience, had likable characters, and was entertaining to 99% of those who watched it.

As far as the story goes, it was a joke. it was an exact copy of IV. Oh, the force sensitive hero grows up on some dessert planet without her parents. Never hear that one before. Oh look, Han that rascally smuggler is still in trouble with some shady people. Hey look a bar scene full of random aliens, that's original. They couldn't even come up with a new weapon of mass destruction. Oh cool guys, this one can destroy more than one planet at a time. So original. They couldn't even come up a new way to destroy the big bad weapon.

What the heck is up with Finn? A black guy gets some screen time in a Star Wars movie and they make him a bubbling idiot janitor? I was honestly shocked at how Finn was portrayed.

Kylo is probably the worst villain I have ever seen. Star Wars is very much about light/dark good/evil. Kylo was an angsty teen who had daddy issues and got angry every once and awhile. He wasn't an evil Sith apprentice or Sith lord. He wasn't even really that evil comparatively speaking. No one looks at Kylo and thinks, "Man that guy is full of the dark side and is straight up evil." They look at Kylo and think, "Man that guy is a dick. He needs to go."

The main thing that annoys me is Rey. No training at all but halfway through the movie she is pulling Jedi mind tricks. BS. Rey can fight with a stick, cool. Apparently that means she can pick up a Light Saber, once again with no training at all, and defeat someone who has apparently been trained in the Dark Side and trained in Light Saber combat. Give me a break. Sure, have a strong female lead but don't crap on the the lore of Star Wars while doing it. Not that there is any lore left anymore.

Congrats Disney, you made a billion dollars destroying one of the greatest stories in modern history.
