…then the Force hit the snooze button and slept for nine more minutes.
Sith. Siththththth. It’s like the most evil-sounding made-up word ever.

Man, those phantoms sure are menacing. I hope they turn out not be a big deal.
This Jedi doesn’t fit. Can I return it?
If the Empire Strikes twice more after this, they’re out. The post 18. The Empire Strikes Back appeared first on Chipperish Media.

Everyone knows about the struggle of good and evil in Star Wars, but there’s another huge conflict happening alongside it: nature and technology.
In response to the previous episode, this discussion will be about the politics that are likely not intentional but nevertheless are present in Lucas’s Star Wars movie.
