Unoriginal. Things have come to light about him

New things came to light on his “scholarly” work which made me reconsider. Don’t waste your time. Ideas are stolen and behaviors have come to light.

Amazing but not worth it

Alastair is poised, brilliant, articulate, and funny. And he really knows his stuff. At the same time, after I learned more about him (google him) I couldn’t listen any more.

Best Star Wars podcast. Most thoughtful,and intelegent break down of Star Wras content. Other podcasters seem like lesser next to Alastair. Keep up the good work!

Truly academic

I didn’t know what to expect when I started listening. I was pleasantly surprised to hear the Star Wars cinematic universe discussed in a straight up academic perspective. As Alastair refers to them, these podcasts are “lectures.” I think of them as a seminar course in the immense (and continually unfolding) storyline that is Star Wars. As a SW lover since...birth, I guess, I was thrilled to hear perspectives that had never crossed my mind. Additionally, Alastair finds a way of articulating the apparent reasons for my questioning of certain story choices. I always knew that some story elements felt “off” or just “out of place,” but Alastair explains why by delving into the academic side of storytelling, or “storytelling theory,” if you will. I’ve listened to the entire series (to-date) and look forward to hearing Alastair’s thoughts on the films yet to come.

A Very Different Take

I’ve listened to this series over and over and continue to pick up new things every time I watch one of the films. Alister takes a very unique perspective on the series as a whole and sticks purely to what the text communicates rather than what the cultural impact has been. Don’t agree with all his opinions but they are clear, concise and most importantly interesting

Too opinionated

This podcast is touted as a deep look into the story structure and characters of Star Wars but this show has too many opinions to be an objective view on the matter, which I was looking for.

So glad it’s now regular!

A fantastic thematic/structural breakdown of Star Wars, and one of the very few cis het white guys (save the ones directly involved in the series) I genuinely love hearing talk about my very favourite franchise of all time!Still hoping those Clone Wars episodes are on the table - or at the very least an episode on Our Lady of Perpetual Survival, Ahsoka Tano!
