The Wretched Hive: April 13, 2018

Episode #59: The SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY trailer blasted out of Mos Eisley last week and we provide our analysis and commentary along with a Hutt-load of the usual nonsense you’ve come to expect from TWH. Special guest Brad Chowen from The Super, Fantastic, Terrific Podcast joins us to review the Solo trailer and provide his expectations for the next installment in the Star Wars franchise (actually I think he just wanted to meet the Porg). We’ll get you caught up on Episode IX news, debate the Meryl Streep as Leia rumor, and travel back in time to hear Mark Hamill sing on German television. Der unglückliche Schwarm liebt Deutschland!

Episode #57: It’s THREE’S COMPANY as Scott, Greg, and Steve remove the training wheels and scream downhill towards traffic with no brakes and a lot of Star Wars news to cover including the announcement of a Jon Favreau-produced live action show, THE LAST JEDI digital and Blue Ray release, and John Williams’ sunsetting his SW career. We blast away at Lucasfilm’s “homage” to an unknown artist, wonder how fans would react if JJ’s treatment for Episode VIII is ever released, and review the best Twitter has to offer in response to President Trump’s Space Force idea.

The Wretched Hive: February 2, 2018

Episode #54: Three words describe this episode, and they are not ‘THE LAST JEDI’. Never before have we been more OFF THE RAILS than in this, with talk of STAR WARS devolving into THE BREAKFAST CLUB, Kevin Spacey, FOOTLOOSE, and worst of all for Greg, LOVE ACTUALLY. Turns out the Wookie co-pilot will say anything to stop the rest of us from talking Love Actually, including BEEEEEEEEP. We touch on Rian Johnson’s obsession with holding our collective hands, Joseph Gordon Levitt’s insightful article on TLJ, and highlight Carrie Fisher’s Grammy win. The laughs are strong with this one.
