Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been chased down by the latest episode of The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular, as Alanna Kelly joins Glenn & Scott to dissect the latest addition to the Star Wars saga. A brief spoiler-free discussion on their expectations for and impressions of the film (taking up the first twelve minutes of the show) is followed by a longer discussion of the depth and breadth of The Last Jedi. How does the movie carry everyone’s favorite characters forward? How does it play with preconceived notions of what a trilogy’s middle chapter does? Why does Glenn suddenly care about Kylo Ren? They discuss how one of the storylines seems to be a sidetrack from the main plot, and then Glenn & Scott get sidetracked by ranking all nine Star Wars scores.
