We can’t believe it finally awoke! We talked about this way back in 2012 HERE.

Movie Discussion:

Harrison Ford was AWESOME!  Is there more to his death than we know?

Nods to the original: Chess game, trash chute, broken Hyperdrive, etc…

Was Kylo Ren being Kylo Ben or is he just a Kylo DICK?

Who is Snoke?

Rey is a bad ass, but who is she? (There’s been an awakening!)

Does Finn have “The Force”?

Combing the Desert was apparently NOT in the movie:

Comb No Comb

Cameos

  • Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, apparently half the cast of GofT, Carrie’s Daughter, JJ’s Dad, and of course Grunny, SO MANY MORE but I didn’t have a clue who they were

Merchandising!

Ash vs. Evil Feminism

November 8, 2015

This time on the couch, we take a look at Supergirl and wonder if there’s a feminist agenda, Heroes Reborn on NBC, Ash vs. Evil Dead on STARZ, and AMC’s Walking Dead 90 minute Morgan Episode. We also discuss things that happened in 1995 and wonder why Pablo Escobar got such a bad rap but Frank Sinatra didn’t.
