This week, our gallant heroes strive to bring balance to the Force! Share in our glee about the upcoming release of “The Force Awakens”, our dismay at the use of green screen in the prequels, and why saying there weren’t enough women in the original trilogy is a criticism we can learn from, not a damnation of what was an absolutely fantastic group of films.

Join us and find out which type of droid Caitlin is most likely to hoard, what Liz says will separate the new JJ Abrams trilogy from the (awful, awful) prequel trilogy, how Karen gained her SPECTACULAR Yoda impression, and which unexpected version of the original trilogy is Mindy’s favorite!

Carrie Fishers Remarkable Legacy As A Script Doctor (hitfix)

Postcards From The Edge (Trailer)

Correction: Fisher has stated that “Postcards from the Edge” was not biographical. – karen
”I wrote about a mother actress and a daughter actress,” she says. ”I’m not shocked that people think it’s about me and my mother. It’s easier for them to think I have no imagination for language, just a tape recorder with endless batteries.” – Carrie Fisher

The father who flipped out about it, “What am I going to tell my kid about why she’s in that outfit?” Tell them that a giant slug captured me and forced me to wear that stupid outfit, and then I killed him because I didn’t like it. And then I took it off. Backstage.” – Carrie Fisher (wsj)

“It doesn’t have any effect on your life. What do you care?! People try to talk about it like it’s a social issue. Like when you see someone stand up on a talk show and say, “How am I supposed to explain to my children that two men are getting married?… I dunno. It’s your shitty kid. You fuckin’ tell ’em. Why is that anyone else’s problem? Two guys are in LOVE and they can’t get married because you don’t want to talk to your ugly child for five fuckin’ minutes?”― Louis C.K. (goodreads)”
