Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Minicast Know A Legion Episode #3 spotlights the Northeast Remnant Garrison, their origin as they grew out of the Empire City Garrison, trooping incentives and more as they speak with Jeffrey Nichols, TK-1454.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 018 puts John in the hot seat as Matthew grills him on why Revenge of the Sith is the best Star Wars movie. John makes his case, and it’s interesting, but as someone who finds ROTS to be their least favorite Star Wars film, I wasn’t swayed by John’s arguments. Good try, though.

Assembly of Geeks: Remembers Spock & The Wrath of Khan episode starts with some more Hollywood what if’s as they talk about how Nicolas Cage was almost the Green Goblin, Jason Momoa was almost Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, and a bunch of others. It’s a fun discussion. Then they get into the upcoming director’s cut for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and the extra 30 minutes of footage. They talk about the Mary Poppins sequel with Emily Blunt, the For the Love of Spock documentary, Ghostbuster Day, and then they a lengthy and fun discussion on The Wrath of Khan including the director’s cut. Plus Emily talks about her run in with the Flash. Great episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
