The Nerfherder Council – Most Underrated Star Wars Characters

Welcome back, herders of Nerfs! Last week was all about overrated characters in the Star Wars universe, which naturally led us to ponder the opposite: which characters in Star Wars are *under*rated?? We look at new, old, and new versions of old characters to see who got the short shrift from fandom, the writers, Disney, and even George Lucas himself. Which characters do you think don’t get the recognition they deserve?? We want to know! Tell us in the comments below. https://api.spreaker.com/download/episode/15679111/nhc_ep76.mp3 Follow The Nerf Herder Council: Facebook Twitter Google+…

The Nerfherder Council – Most Overrated Star Wars Characters

Hello, Nerfherders! This week, we look at the characters of Star Wars. Not the best characters, or the most underused characters, or anything like that. We turn the microscope on the characters we feel are the least deserving of the hype and following they’ve achieved! (Hey, it’s the internet. We like to complain.) So sit back and get ready to yell at your speakers as we dive into the most overrated characters in Star Wars! https://api.spreaker.com/download/episode/15625699/nhc_ep75.mp3 Follow The Nerf Herder Council: Facebook Twitter Google+ Spreaker RSS

The Nerfherder Council – Do Star Wars Fans Miss George Lucas? – NHC: August 26, 2018

Four movies into Disney’s stewardship, Star Wars is in a very different place than where George Lucas left it. Some like the new direction, many others don’t. Episode IX not only concludes the sequel trilogy, but the Skywalker saga as a whole. With such a daunting task set for the film and fandom so divided, are they starting to look back on the George Lucas era and wish he was back? https://api.spreaker.com/download/episode/15573062/nhc_ep74.mp3 Follow The Nerf Herder Council: Facebook Twitter Google+ Spreaker RSS

The Nerfherder Council – “The Clone Wars” Retrospective: Do We Need More? – NHC: July 22, 2018

“The Clone Wars” is coming back! The big Star Wars news out of SDCC 2018 is the revival of this legendary series on Disney’s upcoming streaming service. Before the news broke, we discussed the series’ original run. It was groundbreaking, sure – but after 100+ episodes, was it running out of steam? We look at some of the unfinished stories that ended up being released after the series’ cancellation in 2012 and ask the tough question: did “The Clone Wars” end too soon, or just in time?? https://api.spreaker.com/download/episode/15307184/nhc_ep70.mp3 Follow The…

The Nerfherder Council – Turning Points: “The Phantom Menace” vs. “The Last Jedi” – NHC: July 15, 2018

Weesa back! Sorry for the delay; when the birth of US falls on a recording day, it throws off our schedule. Enough ranting about the fandom, we’re back to talking about movies! “The Last Jedi” is still inspiring heated debate and likely will for years to come. We got to thinking: has any other movie in the franchise caused this much uproar? We think the answer may be ‘yes’: “The Phantom Menace”! Both movies did not deliver the story fans expected and set the franchise on a different course. Join…

The Nerfherder Council – Star Wars Stories Shelved(?): NHC – June 24, 2018

Breaking news – sort of! Maybe? The Council responds to Collider’s report that Lucasfilm has put all future Star Wars Story film development on hold, presumably in response to poor box office numbers for “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. But did they? Less than 2 days after the Collider story broke, Lucasfilm informed ABC News that is not the case. So what’s the real story? Collider’s report: http://collider.com/star-wars-spinoffs-on-hold/ ABC News’ follow-up: https://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Culture/multiple-films-star-wars-pipeline-sources/story?id=56057987 https://api.spreaker.com/download/episode/15121325/nhc_ep68.mp3   Follow The Nerf Herder Council: Facebook Twitter Google+ Spreaker RSS
