Idiot’s Array Episode 70: Solo and Cynicism

In this episode Alan, Mark, and Ryder discuss Han Solo’s cynicism.

Why did Han Solo become so cynical between Solo and A New Hope? 

Was his cynicism a defense mechanism that helped him survive?

What changed between A New Hope and The Force Awakens to allow Han to believe in the Force and become less cynical?

Why do some characters Star Wars become cynical and others don’t?

Also, Alan and Mark quote song lyrics and Ryder gets a new nickname. We have a really good feeling about this!

Idiot’s Array – Episode 52: Rey, Kylo Ren, and Rian Johnson

 

In this episode, we discuss the recent New York Times interview with Rian Johnson. In the interview he states that in The Last Jedi “Rey and Kylo are almost two halves of our protagonist.” What does he mean? What is Luke Skywalker’s attitude toward the Jedi? What has Luke been in search of on Ahch-To? We delve deep into this fascinating interview.

We also discuss the recent comics and answer a listener’s e-mail question about Rey’s vision in The Force Awakens. We would be honored if you would join us for this packed episode.
