Put Empire in your earholes (49:53) Hey, a clean episode! No bad language here.
The consensus choice for best Star Wars movie is what we’ll talk about in episode #16 of the Next 100 Project. Like most people, we rag on the prequels. Empire, though, has some pretty good acting and obviously outstanding F/X to go with the dark story. Dedicated to Geoff Wall, the unfortunately departed superfan and college friend of Ryan. Go to Sparkplug Coffee, then saddle up your Tauntaun (for no reason) before you hit that play button.
For The Record: “Obi-Wan killed your father” is what David Prowse supposedly said on set, not “Obi-Wan is your father.”
