2018: The Star Wars Year Ahead

So, what can we expect from our favorite franchise in the year ahead?  Well, here are five predictions I have for 2018.  Be warned, these are made with tongue firmly planted in cheek, so if any of these actually come true, I’ll eat a Porg!  Enjoy!

2017: The Star Wars Year In Review

Less Than 12 Parsecs is not a news podcast.  Sure, we cover the big headlines when everyone is talking about them, and I occasionally recap the top headlines of the week that grabbed my attention, but by no means is this a Star Wars news podcast.

That said, with the year winding down, today I am looking back the last 12 months and recapping what I think were the biggest stories in Star Wars this year.  And all in 5 minutes or so!

Happy Star Wars Holidays!

Since it's that time of year when people celebrate a wide variety of holidays, in today's episode I take a look at the special occasions commemorated in the Star Wars galaxy.  Yeah, there's more out there than just Life Day!

I hope that you and yours have a wonderful holiday season, no matter how you celebrate this time of year!

Gut Reaction: Star Wars Adventures

After spending too much time online this past week, I needed something fun, simple and pure Star Wars.  And I think I found it in the Star Wars Adventures comic book published by IDW.  Here is my mini-review, in only 5 minutes!

ALSO... I am experimenting with a video edition of the show.  I have a great deal of technical details to work through first, but here ya go, this is my "rough draft".  Please, let me know what you think!

Chatting About The Last Jedi

Today's episode is a Bonus Episode, because it is longer than 7 minutes.  Waaaaay longer!

I sat down with friend of the show, Mr. Ryan Dassing, and we just nerded out together over the newest film in our favorite saga, The Last Jedi!  We're not all that deep, and I'm not that articulate, but if you like listening to fanboys gush, then this is the show for you!  Beware, here there be spoilers!

AND, if this episode wasn't enough for you, I can be found doing the exact same thing with my old pal Mr. Jason Collier, over on my old show, The Expanded Fandomverse.  It's another hour of nerdy chatter amongst friends!

The Last Jedi: Declan McMahon's Initial Thoughts

Just moments after we got out of the theater tonight, after seeing the premier of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I turned on the recorder to get my son's first thoughts on the film.  I'll be working on my own review this weekend, but for now, here is what Declan, the 14 year old casual Star Wars fan, thought of the film.

Warning, spoilers ahead!

Gut Reaction: Forces of Destiny

I'm a little late on this one (late in posting a new episode and late in talking about this topic) but today I finally get around to reviewing this years animated Star Wars micro-series.  Have a listen to hear what I though, and then let me know if you agree or disagree.  I wanna know!  ;-)

David Frishkorn from The Cocky Cockpit Podcast put the word out that their show was looking for people to submit their Top Five predictions for The Last Jedi.  So, I sent him my thoughts.  But, I am also going to share those same thoughts with you here now!

-And even though your listening to them now, please be sure to check out The Cocky Cockpits prediction episode.  I promise you it will be fun! In an adult humor sort of way! ;-)
