Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Reactions to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them starts with some discussion of playing pretend as kids, some news, they go through the superhero movies of 2017, then share their thoughts on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, pretty spoiler free, and their thoughts on who would play a young Dumbledore. Good episode, informative and fun.

Bombad Radio: A Bombad Happy Thanksgiving is hosted by James and Steve aka Fudge Ripple as they share Thanksgiving stories. The audio is a bit rough but it’s nostalgic for long time listeners of the show. I thought it was a fun one but if you’re a new listener, you might not get as much out of it.

Bombad Radio: Episode 259 covers The Chronicles of Riddick. This one is more of a review of the film, a critique, and a look at the overall franchise with a couple comparisons to Star Wars. It’s really light on the Star Wars ties, but if you’re a Riddick fan, you might want to check this one out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

When Princess Leia is taken prisoner, Luke, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 ride to the rescue and take on Darth Vader in his awesome Death Star.

How did Caleb Dune escape the Jedi purge? Then, journey even further back and experience Caleb’s very first adventure as a Padawan, protecting the Jedi Temple alongside his new master.
