Introducing your friends to Star Wars
In this episode:
- Getting into Star Wars can be tough.
It has a huge history and a gigantic fanbase, and with 50 years
behind it, some people are intimidated by the franchise and don’t
know how to jump in. Never fear, geeks! We’re here to help.
- Inspired by our resident Jedi Noobs
Chocobochica and CapsuleJay (among others!), we want to make sure
that Star Wars is not unapproachable. We provide suggestions on the
best viewing order on the movies, as well as jumping-on points that
aren’t necessarily even tied in with the films.
- There is a huge swath of Star
Wars-related media out there, so if you’re a book person, we
recommend books (specifically, audiobooks!), or
if you’re a gamer, there are always video games, and if you like to
binge, you can even jump in with some of the cartoons and even
different ways to watch those!
- We discuss the oft-mentioned Machete
order, as well as how The Force Awakens (Episode 7) changed the way
you jump in and get accustomed to the galaxy far, far away.
- Even spinoffs like the recent Rogue
One and the upcoming Han Solo films present unique ways to dip your
toes in without needing 50 years worth of history to make sense of
Geeky Offer of the Week
- Head over to audibletrial.com/geektogeekcast
and grab either LOST STARS or A NEW DAWN. They are phenomenal
audiobooks, and because they’re Star Wars, they have ultra-high
- Zelda Zelda Zelda. Breath of the Wild
has made him pretty much live in Hyrule.
- Buffy: The Vampire Slayer rewatch
with his wife.
- Replaying Wii games--Mario Kart as a
good 2-player game, and watching his wife discover how different
Super Mario Run is over New Super Mario Bros Wii
- Read Wayward and Ratqueens, which has
been given a soft reset, which means you can get into it easier
- Finally “Beat” Fire Emblem Heroes,
but more content should be comign soon.
- I still love Shovel Knight and have
been replaying it on Switch. Not only is this his year of trying to
replay more things, but it’s also a way to keep using the Switch
because it’s just great to hold and use.
- Void’s kids prefer joycons sideways
with the wrist strap over other controllers.
- Finally watching a bunch of stuff
that built up between the new job and Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
(Various YouTube series, Genius Game Season 3, Assassin's Creed
(movie), Moana. Fantastic Beasts, Passengers, and the
disappointingly bland Iron Fist on Netflix.)
