[ 00:00:01:00 ] - [ 00:00:05:00 ]
There's people in cars flying by and he could be flying by I mean you never know
[ 00:00:05:00 ] - [ 00:00:08:00 ]
I mean it's just like Obi-Wan could be falling past the building I mean you
[ 00:00:08:00 ] - [ 00:00:11:00 ]
don't know he could be falling past the building.
[ 00:00:11:00 ] - [ 00:00:13:00 ]
Yeah like, no.
[ 00:00:13:00 ] - [ 00:00:19:00 ]
It's here after four episodes full of suspense building up to this the final
[ 00:00:19:00 ] - [ 00:00:25:00 ]
[ 00:00:25:00 ] - [ 00:00:31:00 ]
[ 00:00:42:00 ] - [ 00:00:47:00 ]

[ 00:01:24:00 ] - [ 00:01:29:00 ]
[ 00:01:29:00 ] - [ 00:01:35:00 ]
going? I'm doing well how are you? I'm doing pretty good. Can I open my beer now?
[ 00:01:35:00 ] - [ 00:01:42:00 ]
Yeah wait wait wait wait so we the last couple podcasts we've both been I'm
[ 00:01:42:00 ] - [ 00:01:46:00 ]
sorry we both have it. No you've been saluting with the with the pop.
[ 00:01:46:00 ] - [ 00:01:51:00 ]
I've been saluting with the pop. So let's do a 3 2 1 countdown pop and then you
[ 00:01:51:00 ] - [ 00:01:55:00 ]
can talk about your beer I'll talk about mine. Okay. Ready? Yes. 3 2 1.
[ 00:01:55:00 ] - [ 00:02:02:00 ]
Nice. Oh that was a nice that was a synchronicity. That was awesome. Alright so I am not
[ 00:02:02:00 ] - [ 00:02:07:00 ]
surprising anyone I am still on my setzer kick and I am drinking Scoffwall
[ 00:02:07:00 ] - [ 00:02:14:00 ]
tropical POG which is just their POG basement POGs flavoring I guess inside
[ 00:02:14:00 ] - [ 00:02:17:00 ]
of a setzer and it's pretty good I like it I've been digging it I'm still on the
[ 00:02:17:00 ] - [ 00:02:20:00 ]
setzer kick I'm I don't know maybe it's just quarantine maybe it's just summer
[ 00:02:20:00 ] - [ 00:02:23:00 ]
but I've enjoyed the setzer. What are you drinking? It's funny you say that
[ 00:02:23:00 ] - [ 00:02:29:00 ]
because I almost was going to have a basement POG tonight but I decided
[ 00:02:29:00 ] - [ 00:02:34:00 ]
instead. The actual beer though. The actual beer yes I said instead I saw
[ 00:02:34:00 ] - [ 00:02:38:00 ]
this in the store and I just I couldn't resist man they're gonna think Scoffwall
[ 00:02:38:00 ] - [ 00:02:43:00 ]
like pays us money but they don't but this is also my Scoffwall. Oh you're drinking Scoffwall too?
[ 00:02:43:00 ] - [ 00:02:48:00 ]
Look it's a really good brewery okay and it's local so it's local here in Atlanta.
[ 00:02:48:00 ] - [ 00:02:53:00 ]
But this one I couldn't resist when I saw it is called F*** Corona so I had to get
[ 00:02:53:00 ] - [ 00:03:03:00 ]
that one because yeah. Wait wait wait the tagline is F*** Corona? The name of the well it's basement IPA
[ 00:03:03:00 ] - [ 00:03:09:00 ]
Okay wait what is the yeah this is what is this virus in parentheses beneath the
[ 00:03:09:00 ] - [ 00:03:14:00 ]
oh so it's got virus okay okay I'm sorry they're not saying F*** my competitor
[ 00:03:14:00 ] - [ 00:03:19:00 ]
they're saying yes okay yeah so okay so what is the it's a basement though so
[ 00:03:19:00 ] - [ 00:03:23:00 ]
it's a style on the basement IPA
what is the I honestly tell me what the taste
[ 00:03:23:00 ] - [ 00:03:28:00 ]
well I'm probably just a sucker for marketing and in which case I tip my hat
[ 00:03:28:00 ] - [ 00:03:32:00 ]
to Scoffwall because I think it is basement I think it's just basement IPA
[ 00:03:32:00 ] - [ 00:03:36:00 ]
it's just got the nice little slogan on the front that really caught my eye so
[ 00:03:36:00 ] - [ 00:03:41:00 ]
yeah it's good but I think it's just basement. Okay so you think it's just a
[ 00:03:41:00 ] - [ 00:03:47:00 ]
rebrand? Yes. Well not a temporary rebrand. A special edition limited edition and
[ 00:03:47:00 ] - [ 00:03:52:00 ]
exclusive. America. America Bud Light. Bud Light always has those like weird can
[ 00:03:52:00 ] - [ 00:03:55:00 ]
things will do like that's right boards and NFL and that kind of stuff it's still Bud Light.
[ 00:03:55:00 ] - [ 00:03:59:00 ]
Yes. Okay so we left off on pins and needles kind of from last week at the
[ 00:03:59:00 ] - [ 00:04:05:00 ]
very end of the fourth issue Maul
is fighting with Eldra Kadis who is a Jedi
[ 00:04:05:00 ] - [ 00:04:10:00 ]
[ 00:04:10:00 ] - [ 00:04:13:00 ]
more than a Padawan
too so I mean so we really left on kind of pins and needles
[ 00:04:13:00 ] - [ 00:04:17:00 ]
and I went and read the comic that night and did you read it that night or did
[ 00:04:17:00 ] - [ 00:04:21:00 ]
you wait a little bit? I waited a little bit I wanted to read it but I had other
[ 00:04:21:00 ] - [ 00:04:24:00 ]
things going on but I think that it's appropriate that we left it at the
[ 00:04:24:00 ] - [ 00:04:28:00 ]
cliffhanger at the end of four in the spirit of you know the old serials that
[ 00:04:28:00 ] - [ 00:04:33:00 ]
that well Indiana Jones and in some parts Star Wars were kind of based on so
[ 00:04:33:00 ] - [ 00:04:37:00 ]
we had the cliffhanger and we came back. Indiana Jones has left us on
[ 00:04:37:00 ] - [ 00:04:43:00 ]
number four too. Yes. I agree. Actually it left us on number three. Number five is
[ 00:04:43:00 ] - [ 00:04:48:00 ]
coming. Number five is coming. It's gonna be so good. Number five is gonna be
[ 00:04:48:00 ] - [ 00:04:54:00 ]
amazing. But sorry I did not mean to interrupt you but yes our podcast ended
[ 00:04:54:00 ] - [ 00:05:00:00 ]
on like like the serial. On the cliffhanger yes the total cliffhanger. So literally him and Eldra
[ 00:05:01:00 ] - [ 00:05:05:00 ]
I mean like like like hardcore battling and what was your prediction last week?
[ 00:05:05:00 ] - [ 00:05:06:00 ]
Do you remember?
[ 00:05:06:00 ] - [ 00:05:14:00 ]
Well, what was my prediction? I know what I wanted. I wanted her not to die because they've done a good job of portraying her as a character.
[ 00:05:14:00 ] - [ 00:05:17:00 ]
You know, you don't want someone to be killed off. She she had skills.
[ 00:05:17:00 ] - [ 00:05:22:00 ]
She was confident. She was not some scared little quivering thing.
[ 00:05:22:00 ] - [ 00:05:26:00 ]
So she had she knew she had to work with Maul
at one point.
[ 00:05:26:00 ] - [ 00:05:30:00 ]
Like she she understood that they needed to fight together to be able to at least get to the point where they could fight each other.
[ 00:05:30:00 ] - [ 00:05:37:00 ]
Yeah. And so but at the same time, we know that she can't survive or at least she can't she can't kill him for obvious reasons.
[ 00:05:37:00 ] - [ 00:05:43:00 ]
But she also can't really survive or escape because then she'd go tell everybody and we can't have that happen either.
[ 00:05:43:00 ] - [ 00:05:46:00 ]
So you can't give away the 2000 year old Sith
[ 00:05:46:00 ] - [ 00:05:50:00 ]
It's a couple of panels in that I thought it was happening.
[ 00:05:50:00 ] - [ 00:05:58:00 ]
I thought he's going to turn her to the dark side, which I kind of wanted to happen because otherwise she has to die.
[ 00:05:58:00 ] - [ 00:06:03:00 ]
So so when we left there, they're battling it out and they just cross swords for the first time.
[ 00:06:03:00 ] - [ 00:06:08:00 ]
I really enjoyed the first, I don't know, 10 pages of this comic a lot.
[ 00:06:08:00 ] - [ 00:06:12:00 ]
Like the fight scenes were really well drawn. I think that they were really well.
[ 00:06:12:00 ] - [ 00:06:18:00 ]
The physics, I guess, involved with the bodies flailing and flying back and like the bursting of stuff and the jumping and stuff.
[ 00:06:18:00 ] - [ 00:06:21:00 ]
It didn't look anime-ish. It looked like a really good fight sequence.
[ 00:06:21:00 ] - [ 00:06:24:00 ]
Like you would imagine two humans fighting, you know, in a movie or something.
[ 00:06:24:00 ] - [ 00:06:26:00 ]
I thought it was really well drawn.
[ 00:06:26:00 ] - [ 00:06:29:00 ]
Yeah. And he really loves doing the helicopter, doesn't he? With his little double.
[ 00:06:29:00 ] - [ 00:06:37:00 ]
He does. But, you know, I'm a guy. I get it. I mean, you know, if I had two of them, I'd be like, oh, if I could do that, I would do it nonstop.
[ 00:06:37:00 ] - [ 00:06:42:00 ]
I mean, people would get sick of me helicoptering my lightsaber. But, you know, it's noticeable.
[ 00:06:42:00 ] - [ 00:06:45:00 ]
I'm not complaining. It's just like, you know, that's your move.
[ 00:06:45:00 ] - [ 00:06:50:00 ]
There's some panels that it almost looks shield-ish, like you're waiting for him to use it as a shield, but then he never does.
[ 00:06:50:00 ] - [ 00:06:55:00 ]
Right. That's right. Yeah. It's that much of a disc-looking fling around.
[ 00:06:55:00 ] - [ 00:07:00:00 ]
But what is this? Page... this is where it turned. Page 96.
[ 00:07:00:00 ] - [ 00:07:06:00 ]
The last panel on page 96, where she has that grin on her face.
[ 00:07:06:00 ] - [ 00:07:11:00 ]
She has thrown her lightsaber. First of all, I think we should step back for a second.
[ 00:07:11:00 ] - [ 00:07:15:00 ]
They are fighting. They're dueling very well. She's totally holding her own.
[ 00:07:15:00 ] - [ 00:07:18:00 ]
He's saying, if I make one mistake, she will kill me. Right.
[ 00:07:18:00 ] - [ 00:07:22:00 ]
So, yeah, he so and he is and he has also said during this fight, he's like, she is not a Padawan
[ 00:07:22:00 ] - [ 00:07:27:00 ]
She's basically, yeah, she's she's like, this is a Jedi. I'm fighting a Jedi for the first time.
[ 00:07:27:00 ] - [ 00:07:30:00 ]
Like, I really feel like this is what I was, you know, I've been waiting for.
[ 00:07:30:00 ] - [ 00:07:33:00 ]
And I feel like I'm not skimping myself in any manner and fighting a Padawan
[ 00:07:33:00 ] - [ 00:07:37:00 ]
She's a really, really good Jedi. And then she does a really foolish thing.
[ 00:07:37:00 ] - [ 00:07:41:00 ]
She throws her lightsaber. Why would you throw your lightsaber? It's your weapon.
[ 00:07:41:00 ] - [ 00:07:45:00 ]
Keep it in your hand. She throws her lightsaber into the rock wall over his head.
[ 00:07:45:00 ] - [ 00:07:48:00 ]
And he says, you know, you should have you should have tried to hit me.
[ 00:07:48:00 ] - [ 00:07:53:00 ]
And she has that look in the last panel 96 that told me exactly what was about to happen.
[ 00:07:53:00 ] - [ 00:07:57:00 ]
That look of overconfidence. You just screwed up. It's a joker-esque look.
[ 00:07:57:00 ] - [ 00:08:00:00 ]
Like, it is a joker-esque, but it's total overconfidence.
[ 00:08:00:00 ] - [ 00:08:06:00 ]
You're being smug. You're giving a little smirk. And that's when I knew she's going to die.
[ 00:08:06:00 ] - [ 00:08:10:00 ]
So another thing about her, too, and maybe it's her. I think she's Twi'lek.
[ 00:08:10:00 ] - [ 00:08:15:00 ]
The race. She looks older. Like, she looks like a Jedi.
[ 00:08:15:00 ] - [ 00:08:20:00 ]
[ 00:08:20:00 ] - [ 00:08:23:00 ]
He was like, they talk about he's like 17. You know, he's like, she looks older.
[ 00:08:23:00 ] - [ 00:08:28:00 ]
Like, she looks like she's like mid-20s in my opinion. Did you get that?
[ 00:08:28:00 ] - [ 00:08:30:00 ]
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I agree with that.
[ 00:08:30:00 ] - [ 00:08:34:00 ]
Yeah, like the Padawan
-esque was not really there.
[ 00:08:34:00 ] - [ 00:08:37:00 ]
Like, it was more like he was fighting someone about his age in my opinion.
[ 00:08:37:00 ] - [ 00:08:41:00 ]
Yes, she's not a child. No, she's not coming across as a child.
[ 00:08:41:00 ] - [ 00:08:44:00 ]
You know something bad's about to happen to her just because of that panel.
[ 00:08:44:00 ] - [ 00:08:48:00 ]
Like, it can't be that easy to kill Maul
. Which, you know, of course you know that it's not easy to kill Maul
[ 00:08:48:00 ] - [ 00:08:54:00 ]
I don't know why, but that look of, it was just like, you are, I know you're good.
[ 00:08:54:00 ] - [ 00:09:00:00 ]
[ 00:09:00:00 ] - [ 00:09:04:00 ]
talking to the Emperor
saying your overconfidence is your weakness.
[ 00:09:04:00 ] - [ 00:09:08:00 ]
And it is. It's her weakness. She thought she'd won, and what does she do?
[ 00:09:08:00 ] - [ 00:09:12:00 ]
Turn the page. She turns her back.
[ 00:09:12:00 ] - [ 00:09:17:00 ]
But also too, the panel where she turns her back and she says, uh, like, that's a weird panel to me.
[ 00:09:17:00 ] - [ 00:09:21:00 ]
Like, it's like a, did she really think she was done?
[ 00:09:21:00 ] - [ 00:09:27:00 ]
She picks up her lightsaber and she's looking off in the distance wistfully like, hmm, yeah.
[ 00:09:27:00 ] - [ 00:09:30:00 ]
Yeah, she thought she'd won. She thought she crushed him.
[ 00:09:30:00 ] - [ 00:09:34:00 ]
Again, overconfidence. What are you doing?
[ 00:09:34:00 ] - [ 00:09:36:00 ]
Well, she paid the ultimate price for it.
[ 00:09:36:00 ] - [ 00:09:37:00 ]
[ 00:09:37:00 ] - [ 00:09:42:00 ]
I mean, you know, she was a cool Jedi, but she's gone.
[ 00:09:42:00 ] - [ 00:09:46:00 ]
And which, we both kind of said last week, there's no way she lives because she can't get out now.
[ 00:09:46:00 ] - [ 00:09:53:00 ]
But, okay, I thought they did a good job of making me think, even briefly, that he's going to turn her.
[ 00:09:53:00 ] - [ 00:10:00:00 ]
Turn her to the dark side. I thought maybe, you know, into an agent that he could use, possibly against the Emperor
[ 00:10:00:00 ] - [ 00:10:05:00 ]
Even briefly I was I appreciated that they they dangle that enough for me to grab on a little bit.
[ 00:10:06:00 ] - [ 00:10:09:00 ]
And I did like his final word where he tells her that she is a Jedi.
[ 00:10:09:00 ] - [ 00:10:11:00 ]
Like he's like yeah you are a Jedi.
[ 00:10:11:00 ] - [ 00:10:13:00 ]
Like you may be called a Padawan
but there's a strength in you.
[ 00:10:13:00 ] - [ 00:10:18:00 ]
I mean even as he's stabbing her through her body with his lightsaber he still at least acknowledges a little bit.
[ 00:10:18:00 ] - [ 00:10:25:00 ]
In my opinion it's actually you know the funny thing is as much as he hates the Jedi that's actually giving her an honor.
[ 00:10:25:00 ] - [ 00:10:26:00 ]
[ 00:10:26:00 ] - [ 00:10:27:00 ]
Yeah I totally agree with that.
[ 00:10:27:00 ] - [ 00:10:30:00 ]
Yeah. Like it's so that's the thing about his character that he hates them.
[ 00:10:31:00 ] - [ 00:10:34:00 ]
But I still think he he holds a special place in his heart.
[ 00:10:34:00 ] - [ 00:10:38:00 ]
No but I but but I still think he respects them.
[ 00:10:38:00 ] - [ 00:10:39:00 ]
He just knows that he needs to wipe the floor with them.
[ 00:10:39:00 ] - [ 00:10:40:00 ]
You know I mean.
[ 00:10:40:00 ] - [ 00:10:40:00 ]
[ 00:10:41:00 ] - [ 00:10:44:00 ]
So I think that he still understands it.
[ 00:10:44:00 ] - [ 00:10:50:00 ]
And this is more of a proving to himself that he is at least they're equal if not more like it's like a like a like a self.
[ 00:10:51:00 ] - [ 00:10:57:00 ]
I don't know what the word I'm looking for is but like a self belief type thing where he knows he's going to win but he needs to win just to be
[ 00:10:57:00 ] - [ 00:10:59:00 ]
able to tell himself that he's going to be able to fight all these other guys.
[ 00:10:59:00 ] - [ 00:11:06:00 ]
Oh well I mean we see in the comic coming up that the standoff or standalone that yeah he dines out on this for like for weeks.
[ 00:11:07:00 ] - [ 00:11:08:00 ]
You know I killed me a Jedi.
[ 00:11:08:00 ] - [ 00:11:09:00 ]
I killed me a Jedi.
[ 00:11:10:00 ] - [ 00:11:10:00 ]
[ 00:11:10:00 ] - [ 00:11:12:00 ]
He's all in like this is like yeah.
[ 00:11:12:00 ] - [ 00:11:13:00 ]
Yeah no I agree.
[ 00:11:13:00 ] - [ 00:11:16:00 ]
And so here's here's my thing that I really like that I did not expect.
[ 00:11:17:00 ] - [ 00:11:19:00 ]
The C3 droid that shows up.
[ 00:11:19:00 ] - [ 00:11:19:00 ]
[ 00:11:20:00 ] - [ 00:11:21:00 ]
Got to play a part somewhere right.
[ 00:11:22:00 ] - [ 00:11:23:00 ]
[ 00:11:24:00 ] - [ 00:11:24:00 ]
[ 00:11:24:00 ] - [ 00:11:32:00 ]
But what would be the point of adding him into the comic if he didn't record something or at least make note of something that somebody is going to come
[ 00:11:32:00 ] - [ 00:11:36:00 ]
along and find the C3 droid some point somewhere down the line and say hey how did this guy die.
[ 00:11:37:00 ] - [ 00:11:37:00 ]
[ 00:11:37:00 ] - [ 00:11:38:00 ]
What is this.
[ 00:11:38:00 ] - [ 00:11:39:00 ]
[ 00:11:39:00 ] - [ 00:11:40:00 ]
[ 00:11:40:00 ] - [ 00:11:42:00 ]
If that happens and then I'm really impressed.
[ 00:11:42:00 ] - [ 00:11:45:00 ]
To me that was just like a he just slaughters everything in his path.
[ 00:11:45:00 ] - [ 00:11:46:00 ]
It was yet another.
[ 00:11:46:00 ] - [ 00:11:49:00 ]
He can't have any witnesses like you're saying he can't have any witnesses.
[ 00:11:50:00 ] - [ 00:11:52:00 ]
Just just slice him in half and done.
[ 00:11:52:00 ] - [ 00:11:56:00 ]
I'll see I think that's a I think that's a that's a that's a an anchor somewhere.
[ 00:11:56:00 ] - [ 00:11:56:00 ]
[ 00:11:56:00 ] - [ 00:11:57:00 ]
That would be great.
[ 00:11:57:00 ] - [ 00:11:57:00 ]
I'll come back.
[ 00:11:57:00 ] - [ 00:11:58:00 ]
That would be really bad.
[ 00:11:59:00 ] - [ 00:12:05:00 ]
I think it will because it just don't point you wasted a whole page of drawing just to have the C3 droid walk up and be like I can't see anything.
[ 00:12:06:00 ] - [ 00:12:06:00 ]
What just happened.
[ 00:12:06:00 ] - [ 00:12:07:00 ]
And then get sliced apart.
[ 00:12:07:00 ] - [ 00:12:07:00 ]
I don't know.
[ 00:12:07:00 ] - [ 00:12:08:00 ]
[ 00:12:08:00 ] - [ 00:12:08:00 ]
[ 00:12:10:00 ] - [ 00:12:10:00 ]
[ 00:12:10:00 ] - [ 00:12:11:00 ]
So overall what do you think about the comic.
[ 00:12:11:00 ] - [ 00:12:12:00 ]
What would you think about the finale.
[ 00:12:13:00 ] - [ 00:12:16:00 ]
It was a very satisfying conclusion to the Darth Maul
[ 00:12:16:00 ] - [ 00:12:18:00 ]
I did enjoy it quite a bit.
[ 00:12:19:00 ] - [ 00:12:20:00 ]
I actually thought it was a good comic.
[ 00:12:20:00 ] - [ 00:12:22:00 ]
I actually thought it was pretty good.
[ 00:12:22:00 ] - [ 00:12:26:00 ]
I actually was a little sad to see what's her face.
[ 00:12:26:00 ] - [ 00:12:29:00 ]
The the big bad lady.
[ 00:12:29:00 ] - [ 00:12:30:00 ]
[ 00:12:30:00 ] - [ 00:12:30:00 ]
[ 00:12:30:00 ] - [ 00:12:31:00 ]
The weird name Karen.
[ 00:12:32:00 ] - [ 00:12:32:00 ]
[ 00:12:34:00 ] - [ 00:12:35:00 ]
Karen drinking wine.
[ 00:12:36:00 ] - [ 00:12:37:00 ]
The Star Wars Karen.
[ 00:12:37:00 ] - [ 00:12:37:00 ]
[ 00:12:38:00 ] - [ 00:12:38:00 ]
She was Karen.
[ 00:12:39:00 ] - [ 00:12:40:00 ]
[ 00:12:41:00 ] - [ 00:12:41:00 ]
[ 00:12:41:00 ] - [ 00:12:42:00 ]
She got cut down.
[ 00:12:43:00 ] - [ 00:12:46:00 ]
That was that he made a special trip to go back up there to kill her.
[ 00:12:46:00 ] - [ 00:12:47:00 ]
Is that what kind of surprised you.
[ 00:12:47:00 ] - [ 00:12:47:00 ]
[ 00:12:47:00 ] - [ 00:12:51:00 ]
Because he knew he knew that she knew what he was and.
[ 00:12:51:00 ] - [ 00:12:51:00 ]
[ 00:12:51:00 ] - [ 00:12:53:00 ]
And because the first one that's right.
[ 00:12:53:00 ] - [ 00:12:53:00 ]
[ 00:12:53:00 ] - [ 00:12:54:00 ]
No I forgot about that.
[ 00:12:54:00 ] - [ 00:12:54:00 ]
[ 00:12:54:00 ] - [ 00:12:54:00 ]
[ 00:12:54:00 ] - [ 00:12:55:00 ]
Because he's saying.
[ 00:12:55:00 ] - [ 00:12:59:00 ]
Well it's it's actually kind of weird because he's there clearly to kill her.
[ 00:13:00:00 ] - [ 00:13:03:00 ]
And then he says right there before she says you know I know what you are.
[ 00:13:04:00 ] - [ 00:13:05:00 ]
He says you know say it.
[ 00:13:05:00 ] - [ 00:13:06:00 ]
[ 00:13:06:00 ] - [ 00:13:07:00 ]
Give me a reason to get.
[ 00:13:07:00 ] - [ 00:13:08:00 ]
You're there to kill her anyway.
[ 00:13:08:00 ] - [ 00:13:10:00 ]
It doesn't matter if she says you're going to kill her.
[ 00:13:10:00 ] - [ 00:13:11:00 ]
So that was also to that.
[ 00:13:11:00 ] - [ 00:13:14:00 ]
If he really thinks that she knows what he is.
[ 00:13:14:00 ] - [ 00:13:17:00 ]
Hadn't she blasted that out to like eight billion people by this point.
[ 00:13:17:00 ] - [ 00:13:18:00 ]
You got to do what you got to drink and wine.
[ 00:13:18:00 ] - [ 00:13:21:00 ]
I mean she's got to be like telling people I think I got to sell them my hands.
[ 00:13:21:00 ] - [ 00:13:21:00 ]
You know what I mean.
[ 00:13:21:00 ] - [ 00:13:22:00 ]
Like well OK.
[ 00:13:22:00 ] - [ 00:13:24:00 ]
She but she would want to sell that information.
[ 00:13:24:00 ] - [ 00:13:25:00 ]
She's not going to.
[ 00:13:25:00 ] - [ 00:13:25:00 ]
[ 00:13:26:00 ] - [ 00:13:26:00 ]
[ 00:13:26:00 ] - [ 00:13:26:00 ]
[ 00:13:26:00 ] - [ 00:13:27:00 ]
[ 00:13:27:00 ] - [ 00:13:28:00 ]
You know I got to put it on space.
[ 00:13:28:00 ] - [ 00:13:28:00 ]
But she's going.
[ 00:13:29:00 ] - [ 00:13:29:00 ]
She wants to sell that.
[ 00:13:31:00 ] - [ 00:13:31:00 ]
[ 00:13:31:00 ] - [ 00:13:32:00 ]
[ 00:13:32:00 ] - [ 00:13:32:00 ]
[ 00:13:32:00 ] - [ 00:13:32:00 ]
[ 00:13:32:00 ] - [ 00:13:33:00 ]
I get it.
[ 00:13:33:00 ] - [ 00:13:33:00 ]
So all right.
[ 00:13:33:00 ] - [ 00:13:34:00 ]
[ 00:13:34:00 ] - [ 00:13:35:00 ]
So the last the last.
[ 00:13:36:00 ] - [ 00:13:40:00 ]
Kind of not hurdle but the last supposed to be surprised.
[ 00:13:40:00 ] - [ 00:13:42:00 ]
Were you surprised when Papatini what he was doing all the time.
[ 00:13:43:00 ] - [ 00:13:43:00 ]
[ 00:13:44:00 ] - [ 00:13:44:00 ]
[ 00:13:44:00 ] - [ 00:13:44:00 ]
[ 00:13:44:00 ] - [ 00:13:45:00 ]
[ 00:13:45:00 ] - [ 00:13:45:00 ]
[ 00:13:45:00 ] - [ 00:13:46:00 ]
[ 00:13:46:00 ] - [ 00:13:47:00 ]
[ 00:13:47:00 ] - [ 00:13:47:00 ]
[ 00:13:47:00 ] - [ 00:13:48:00 ]
That's a given.
[ 00:13:49:00 ] - [ 00:13:49:00 ]
[ 00:13:49:00 ] - [ 00:13:55:00 ]
He's the he's the Emperor
or he's not the Emperor
but he's the he's the master the
[ 00:13:55:00 ] - [ 00:13:55:00 ]
[ 00:13:56:00 ] - [ 00:13:57:00 ]
So he knows everything.
[ 00:13:58:00 ] - [ 00:14:02:00 ]
So I'm going to compare and contrast both the two comics in a second after we discuss
[ 00:14:02:00 ] - [ 00:14:03:00 ]
the second one.
[ 00:14:05:00 ] - [ 00:14:08:00 ]
It wrapped up everything as I thought it would wrap up everything.
[ 00:14:08:00 ] - [ 00:14:08:00 ]
[ 00:14:09:00 ] - [ 00:14:15:00 ]
You know I think I think I think I liked the first four books of intrigue maybe better
[ 00:14:15:00 ] - [ 00:14:15:00 ]
than the fifth book.
[ 00:14:15:00 ] - [ 00:14:18:00 ]
You know I mean like it was just kind of like OK this is what's going to happen.
[ 00:14:18:00 ] - [ 00:14:18:00 ]
We know it's going to happen.
[ 00:14:19:00 ] - [ 00:14:22:00 ]
Couple of small surprises in there but not anything that was just like knock me off my
[ 00:14:22:00 ] - [ 00:14:23:00 ]
feet like whoa.
[ 00:14:23:00 ] - [ 00:14:24:00 ]
That was a good twist.
[ 00:14:24:00 ] - [ 00:14:28:00 ]
You know I mean I'm trying to think back to the other ones I'm sure we cover them at
[ 00:14:28:00 ] - [ 00:14:32:00 ]
the time but not not really any major twists.
[ 00:14:32:00 ] - [ 00:14:36:00 ]
It was a satisfying conclusion to to the little story.
[ 00:14:38:00 ] - [ 00:14:38:00 ]
[ 00:14:38:00 ] - [ 00:14:39:00 ]
[ 00:14:39:00 ] - [ 00:14:40:00 ]
It was a good conclusion.
[ 00:14:40:00 ] - [ 00:14:42:00 ]
It was a good fifth wrap up wrap up comic.
[ 00:14:42:00 ] - [ 00:14:43:00 ]
I agree with that.
[ 00:14:43:00 ] - [ 00:14:48:00 ]
[ 00:14:52:00 ] - [ 00:14:52:00 ]
[ 00:14:52:00 ] - [ 00:14:55:00 ]
[ 00:14:56:00 ] - [ 00:15:00:00 ]
So both of these were illustrated by Luke
Ross both comics that we read the fifth the
[ 00:15:00:00 ] - [ 00:15:01:00 ]
[ 00:15:01:00 ] - [ 00:15:03:00 ]
And then also this comic was drawn by Luke
[ 00:15:03:00 ] - [ 00:15:06:00 ]
which was neat because I felt like it was a very good
[ 00:15:06:00 ] - [ 00:15:06:00 ]
kind of continuum.
[ 00:15:06:00 ] - [ 00:15:09:00 ]
Like we knew the style of the artist and was really good.
[ 00:15:09:00 ] - [ 00:15:12:00 ]
The fifth book or all the whole Darth Maul
[ 00:15:12:00 ] - [ 00:15:14:00 ]
was written by Cullen Bunn, I think.
[ 00:15:14:00 ] - [ 00:15:18:00 ]
And then Jodie Houser wrote the one-off series.
[ 00:15:18:00 ] - [ 00:15:20:00 ]
[ 00:15:20:00 ] - [ 00:15:21:00 ]
that we're about to discuss now.
[ 00:15:23:00 ] - [ 00:15:24:00 ]
I felt like this was OK.
[ 00:15:24:00 ] - [ 00:15:27:00 ]
So I've made my opinion known for one-offs
[ 00:15:27:00 ] - [ 00:15:29:00 ]
for the past two podcasts. I'm not a fan of one-offs.
[ 00:15:29:00 ] - [ 00:15:30:00 ]
I don't feel like you could tell a good story
[ 00:15:30:00 ] - [ 00:15:31:00 ]
within the one-off.
[ 00:15:31:00 ] - [ 00:15:33:00 ]
I actually really did enjoy this one-off.
[ 00:15:33:00 ] - [ 00:15:35:00 ]
I really liked it. Like it was a very good like,
[ 00:15:36:00 ] - [ 00:15:38:00 ]
I don't want to call it a synopsis of maybe
[ 00:15:38:00 ] - [ 00:15:40:00 ]
[ 00:15:40:00 ] - [ 00:15:44:00 ]
but it was a good like kind of it flashed back to the points
[ 00:15:44:00 ] - [ 00:15:48:00 ]
that maybe they wanted to have stick in the reader's mind
[ 00:15:48:00 ] - [ 00:15:51:00 ]
for future Darth Maul
stuff. Does that make sense to you?
[ 00:15:51:00 ] - [ 00:15:53:00 ]
Yeah, I guess.
[ 00:15:53:00 ] - [ 00:15:54:00 ]
You didn't like it, did you? No.
[ 00:15:55:00 ] - [ 00:15:56:00 ]
What did you not like about it?
[ 00:15:56:00 ] - [ 00:15:59:00 ]
I think part of the problem with this one
[ 00:15:59:00 ] - [ 00:16:01:00 ]
was coming off of the five issue,
[ 00:16:02:00 ] - [ 00:16:07:00 ]
I had a high expectation of character development,
[ 00:16:07:00 ] - [ 00:16:10:00 ]
of story arc, and that's probably not fair
[ 00:16:10:00 ] - [ 00:16:12:00 ]
because like you said, it's a one-off.
[ 00:16:13:00 ] - [ 00:16:17:00 ]
And I bet if we had approached this one maybe first or later,
[ 00:16:18:00 ] - [ 00:16:23:00 ]
maybe I would have appreciated it more as being sort of a vignette,
[ 00:16:23:00 ] - [ 00:16:24:00 ]
a little cul-de-sac, if you will.
[ 00:16:24:00 ] - [ 00:16:29:00 ]
Yeah, no, and I, but, so whenever we did the Qui-Gon Jinn
[ 00:16:30:00 ] - [ 00:16:32:00 ]
we probably should have read these back to back
[ 00:16:32:00 ] - [ 00:16:34:00 ]
because they would have been really good to compare each other to,
[ 00:16:34:00 ] - [ 00:16:36:00 ]
[ 00:16:36:00 ] - [ 00:16:38:00 ]
Having just read the five whole issues
[ 00:16:38:00 ] - [ 00:16:39:00 ]
[ 00:16:39:00 ] - [ 00:16:41:00 ]
I think that it was hard for this one
[ 00:16:41:00 ] - [ 00:16:44:00 ]
to live up to anything in that arc.
[ 00:16:44:00 ] - [ 00:16:47:00 ]
That being said, though, we revisit a couple of different places
[ 00:16:47:00 ] - [ 00:16:49:00 ]
that we talked about in the Maul
[ 00:16:49:00 ] - [ 00:16:51:00 ]
[ 00:16:51:00 ] - [ 00:16:53:00 ]
they see all the burned bodies of the Sith
[ 00:16:53:00 ] - [ 00:16:57:00 ]
He has a little flashback thing that is really good parallel
[ 00:16:57:00 ] - [ 00:17:00:00 ]
to the Qui-Gon Jinn
flashback with the tree people that we talked about.
[ 00:17:00:00 ] - [ 00:17:03:00 ]
I will, we'll talk about that, but I don't get it.
[ 00:17:03:00 ] - [ 00:17:05:00 ]
All right, so let's cut it.
[ 00:17:05:00 ] - [ 00:17:07:00 ]
Okay, okay, let's give a little synopsis.
[ 00:17:07:00 ] - [ 00:17:08:00 ]
So as with all one-offs,
[ 00:17:08:00 ] - [ 00:17:11:00 ]
we're going to start off with some really quick action, really quick.
[ 00:17:11:00 ] - [ 00:17:14:00 ]
Zac Piero, the master thief in Lower Coruscant
[ 00:17:15:00 ] - [ 00:17:19:00 ]
is going with some masked guy to go steal some pre-spice
[ 00:17:19:00 ] - [ 00:17:21:00 ]
or something like that, some kind of stuff to make spice or something.
[ 00:17:21:00 ] - [ 00:17:23:00 ]
[ 00:17:23:00 ] - [ 00:17:26:00 ]
Yeah, yes, he's a very good discount Han Solo
[ 00:17:28:00 ] - [ 00:17:30:00 ]
although he seems to be a little more well-known
[ 00:17:30:00 ] - [ 00:17:32:00 ]
because the person in the mask
[ 00:17:32:00 ] - [ 00:17:35:00 ]
that is to accompany him on this shipment steal
[ 00:17:35:00 ] - [ 00:17:36:00 ]
[ 00:17:36:00 ] - [ 00:17:41:00 ]
really kind of is watching the guy,
[ 00:17:41:00 ] - [ 00:17:43:00 ]
not necessarily for his thieving skills,
[ 00:17:43:00 ] - [ 00:17:45:00 ]
[ 00:17:45:00 ] - [ 00:17:47:00 ]
which I thought was really kind of weird.
[ 00:17:47:00 ] - [ 00:17:48:00 ]
You know what I mean? Yeah.
[ 00:17:48:00 ] - [ 00:17:52:00 ]
Like his whole focus, it seems, is finding people
[ 00:17:52:00 ] - [ 00:17:55:00 ]
that could have been Jedi, since he can't kill the Jedi yet.
[ 00:17:55:00 ] - [ 00:17:57:00 ]
He's kind of like trying to find the scum and villainy
[ 00:17:57:00 ] - [ 00:18:00:00 ]
[ 00:18:00:00 ] - [ 00:18:03:00 ]
and maybe doesn't even know it, and killing them.
[ 00:18:03:00 ] - [ 00:18:05:00 ]
None of this story made sense to me. Not any bit of it.
[ 00:18:05:00 ] - [ 00:18:08:00 ]
Well, to me, it kind of does because he's like,
[ 00:18:08:00 ] - [ 00:18:10:00 ]
if I can't go kill Jedi, I want to go kill...
[ 00:18:10:00 ] - [ 00:18:11:00 ]
or I want to go try to fight and hunt down
[ 00:18:11:00 ] - [ 00:18:12:00 ]
the best people that I can,
[ 00:18:12:00 ] - [ 00:18:15:00 ]
and those are going to be the people that could have been Jedi
[ 00:18:15:00 ] - [ 00:18:17:00 ]
but don't realize they're using The Force
[ 00:18:17:00 ] - [ 00:18:18:00 ]
or went down a different path.
[ 00:18:18:00 ] - [ 00:18:19:00 ]
What's the point? I don't get it.
[ 00:18:19:00 ] - [ 00:18:21:00 ]
What's the point of that?
[ 00:18:22:00 ] - [ 00:18:24:00 ]
He's a hunter. He's got to hunt. I don't know.
[ 00:18:24:00 ] - [ 00:18:27:00 ]
Yeah, it's weird. The whole him setting up this whole...
[ 00:18:28:00 ] - [ 00:18:30:00 ]
All right, so quick 30-second synopsis of,
[ 00:18:30:00 ] - [ 00:18:33:00 ]
he sets up this entire brand-new cartel
[ 00:18:33:00 ] - [ 00:18:35:00 ]
[ 00:18:35:00 ] - [ 00:18:37:00 ]
This is Maul
, which preludes a little bit
[ 00:18:37:00 ] - [ 00:18:38:00 ]
[ 00:18:38:00 ] - [ 00:18:39:00 ]
which we can talk about in a little bit,
[ 00:18:39:00 ] - [ 00:18:41:00 ]
but he sets up this whole cartel
[ 00:18:42:00 ] - [ 00:18:44:00 ]
that's really quickly moving into Lore Coruscant
[ 00:18:44:00 ] - [ 00:18:45:00 ]
[ 00:18:45:00 ] - [ 00:18:48:00 ]
He names it after the Padawan
that he just slaughtered.
[ 00:18:48:00 ] - [ 00:18:50:00 ]
Yeah, he named it after the Padawan
[ 00:18:50:00 ] - [ 00:18:52:00 ]
that he just slaughtered. Yeah, that's kind of an FU.
[ 00:18:52:00 ] - [ 00:18:53:00 ]
There's a little bit of...
[ 00:18:53:00 ] - [ 00:18:55:00 ]
Actually, well, okay, maybe it's an FU.
[ 00:18:55:00 ] - [ 00:18:56:00 ]
I thought it was more of a...
[ 00:18:56:00 ] - [ 00:18:59:00 ]
Okay, he's giving even more honor to this, but again...
[ 00:18:59:00 ] - [ 00:19:03:00 ]
No, I look at it as somebody's going to realize,
[ 00:19:03:00 ] - [ 00:19:04:00 ]
like, wait, what? What happened to her?
[ 00:19:04:00 ] - [ 00:19:06:00 ]
Okay, no, you're right. Maybe that is an FU.
[ 00:19:06:00 ] - [ 00:19:09:00 ]
It's an FU. It's an FU. Yeah, it's more of an FU.
[ 00:19:09:00 ] - [ 00:19:12:00 ]
So he forms up this cartel, this fake cartel,
[ 00:19:12:00 ] - [ 00:19:13:00 ]
and then he tries to recruit people
[ 00:19:13:00 ] - [ 00:19:15:00 ]
to help him do missions for this fake cartel,
[ 00:19:15:00 ] - [ 00:19:18:00 ]
and then all he's trying to do is see if they can use The Force
[ 00:19:18:00 ] - [ 00:19:21:00 ]
with Zac Piero here being our one guy
[ 00:19:21:00 ] - [ 00:19:23:00 ]
that happens to go along with him,
[ 00:19:23:00 ] - [ 00:19:25:00 ]
and compliments him the whole way, like,
[ 00:19:25:00 ] - [ 00:19:27:00 ]
hey, you're doing a great job, and then, of course,
[ 00:19:27:00 ] - [ 00:19:28:00 ]
[ 00:19:28:00 ] - [ 00:19:31:00 ]
kills everybody. That's what Maul
[ 00:19:31:00 ] - [ 00:19:32:00 ]
Yeah, he does. Yeah, he's a hunter.
[ 00:19:32:00 ] - [ 00:19:37:00 ]
[ 00:19:37:00 ] - [ 00:19:39:00 ]
hey, did you have fun on your hunt?
[ 00:19:39:00 ] - [ 00:19:41:00 ]
Just guy talk, and he's like,
[ 00:19:41:00 ] - [ 00:19:44:00 ]
I hope you enjoyed killing all these half-Jedi people
[ 00:19:44:00 ] - [ 00:19:46:00 ]
or people that could have been Jedi down on lower core.
[ 00:19:46:00 ] - [ 00:19:50:00 ]
Somehow you're going to expose us pretty much,
[ 00:19:50:00 ] - [ 00:19:51:00 ]
and he's like, no, no, no. I'm not using my lightsaber.
[ 00:19:51:00 ] - [ 00:19:53:00 ]
I'm using regular weapons.
[ 00:19:53:00 ] - [ 00:19:56:00 ]
Anyways, the part that I really liked about the comic
[ 00:19:56:00 ] - [ 00:20:16:00 ]
is when they go back to Malachor
, and you see him...
[ 00:20:16:00 ] - [ 00:20:22:00 ]
Do kind of a 180 where it's like it's very much like Luke
going into the cave on Dagobah
[ 00:20:23:00 ] - [ 00:20:29:00 ]
and seeing Vader
and such and you know seeing his own face. It's like he in the dream or in
[ 00:20:29:00 ] - [ 00:20:35:00 ]
the vision I guess you could call it he becomes a Jedi. Yes. And he saves these people not because
[ 00:20:35:00 ] - [ 00:20:38:00 ]
he necessarily wants to save them but because he wants to hunt this big beast that's trying to
[ 00:20:38:00 ] - [ 00:20:42:00 ]
kill them. And I don't know if it's supposed to show like a spark of good in him or if it was
[ 00:20:42:00 ] - [ 00:20:47:00 ]
just supposed to show that he's supposed to gross him out is supposed to. To me I read that as
[ 00:20:47:00 ] - [ 00:20:55:00 ]
giving him the vision and making sure that he's still on the total evil path. Okay.
[ 00:20:55:00 ] - [ 00:20:59:00 ]
Okay. That's that's that's all I got out of that because otherwise it makes no sense at all.
[ 00:21:00:00 ] - [ 00:21:05:00 ]
So checkbox checked. I mean that was he ends up killing this this beast for these people and they
[ 00:21:05:00 ] - [ 00:21:09:00 ]
invite him to dinner and they ask him to stay over which is a really weird thing. You want to
[ 00:21:09:00 ] - [ 00:21:15:00 ]
sleep in the same bed. Yeah. He just cuts down all the kids at the dinner table. Yeah. Then he just
[ 00:21:15:00 ] - [ 00:21:18:00 ]
cuts down everybody's heads off the dinner table and then ends up killing the kid that he tried to
[ 00:21:18:00 ] - [ 00:21:23:00 ]
help. The only thing he would come in his vision is him instead of him in a Jedi costume. The only
[ 00:21:23:00 ] - [ 00:21:28:00 ]
cool part of this and you can tell me if I'm right is that a Rancor
. Does he kill a Rancor
[ 00:21:28:00 ] - [ 00:21:33:00 ]
It looked like a Rancor
to me. Yeah. That's what that's what I thought it was but I don't know for
[ 00:21:33:00 ] - [ 00:21:36:00 ]
sure because it looks a little different than the ones you see in Return of the Jedi
. It looks a lot
[ 00:21:36:00 ] - [ 00:21:42:00 ]
like a Rancor
to me. Yeah. And the fact that they're of his kind to like that that's what's
[ 00:21:42:00 ] - [ 00:21:49:00 ]
kind of a weird twist on the story is just like he set himself apart from his own race so much
[ 00:21:49:00 ] - [ 00:21:54:00 ]
that he just looks at him like as normal people. He doesn't care about killing them at all. And
[ 00:21:54:00 ] - [ 00:21:59:00 ]
that was kind of weird to me in my opinion. The whole thing was weird. It's just the whole thing
[ 00:21:59:00 ] - [ 00:22:04:00 ]
was weird. I really just enjoyed it though. I enjoyed it. It's really weird. I usually don't
[ 00:22:04:00 ] - [ 00:22:07:00 ]
like one-offs and I thought this one was pretty good. It was very well drawn. There's a couple
[ 00:22:07:00 ] - [ 00:22:12:00 ]
of what page am I on here. There's a couple of panels. I don't know. Page 43. There's a couple
[ 00:22:12:00 ] - [ 00:22:18:00 ]
of panels there. The first one at the top of the page where they're all sitting at the dinner table
[ 00:22:18:00 ] - [ 00:22:23:00 ]
and he's got this look like what the hell. I mean it's I love that panel because of his
[ 00:22:23:00 ] - [ 00:22:29:00 ]
expression and then at the bottom of that page the panel with the lightsaber going through the guy's
[ 00:22:29:00 ] - [ 00:22:34:00 ]
neck where his head is just nothing but on a lightsaber blade. Yeah it's like a lobbing off.
[ 00:22:34:00 ] - [ 00:22:38:00 ]
Yeah I shouldn't laugh but yeah it's very it's a very weird transition. Oh it's got the old vroom.
[ 00:22:38:00 ] - [ 00:22:43:00 ]
I mean yeah there's just also when he decided to switch it was pretty quick switch. Yeah
[ 00:22:43:00 ] - [ 00:22:48:00 ]
yeah agreed. Yeah that was it was odd and then they go back to they go back to I guess it's
[ 00:22:48:00 ] - [ 00:22:51:00 ]
. Yeah they go back to Coruscant
and they're like talking back on their little porch
[ 00:22:51:00 ] - [ 00:22:55:00 ]
and what's really weird is like they're never worried about talking about stuff on this little
[ 00:22:55:00 ] - [ 00:23:01:00 ]
porch. I guess Palpatine
's just so really good at cloaking their bad activities but like you would
[ 00:23:01:00 ] - [ 00:23:05:00 ]
think if Palpatine
's not trying to be seen as a Sith
Lord he's not walking around on his deck.
[ 00:23:05:00 ] - [ 00:23:10:00 ]
You know what I mean? Yeah. Like is him and Maul
are just up there chit-chatting about oh you killed
[ 00:23:10:00 ] - [ 00:23:14:00 ]
this Jedi you blah blah and I'm just kind of like all right well I guess he's not really worried
[ 00:23:14:00 ] - [ 00:23:20:00 ]
about people. Yeah I mean Coruscant
is like 200 stories tall right and this is one stupid little
[ 00:23:20:00 ] - [ 00:23:24:00 ]
battle. There's people in cars flying by and he could be flying by I mean you never know. I mean
[ 00:23:24:00 ] - [ 00:23:28:00 ]
it's just like Obi-Wan could be falling past the building I mean you don't know. He could be
[ 00:23:28:00 ] - [ 00:23:33:00 ]
falling past the building. Yeah like no falling like falling like down and be like hey look there's
[ 00:23:33:00 ] - [ 00:23:39:00 ]
. Hello there. Wait a second I've seen him before. Yeah hello there. Hello there. Yeah
[ 00:23:39:00 ] - [ 00:23:44:00 ]
but anyway yeah it's a very it's it's it's interesting all the stuff that they're able to
[ 00:23:44:00 ] - [ 00:23:49:00 ]
cram into one one one-off you know so I have to give them props. I liked it a lot better than the
[ 00:23:49:00 ] - [ 00:23:55:00 ]
than the Obi-Wan one. I got so much more out of the Qui-Gon one. So much. Did you? So much more
[ 00:23:55:00 ] - [ 00:24:00:00 ]
about that character out of that that tight little story. I thought that was fantastic.
[ 00:24:00:00 ] - [ 00:24:07:00 ]
This is this is just Maul
kills everything. Okay I knew that. It's Maul
[ 00:24:10:00 ] - [ 00:24:15:00 ]
[ 00:24:15:00 ] - [ 00:24:20:00 ]
okay yeah you tempered you tempered my excitement about the issue a bit. I'm sorry. I liked it.
[ 00:24:20:00 ] - [ 00:24:24:00 ]
That being said we've only read what two one-offs so you know it was the better in my opinion of
[ 00:24:24:00 ] - [ 00:24:28:00 ]
the two one-offs but sounds like you are not in agreement with that. Absolutely not.
[ 00:24:30:00 ] - [ 00:24:35:00 ]
Okay and on that note. Well on that that have we had this before,
[ 00:24:35:00 ] - [ 00:24:38:00 ]
Dough? Have we just vehemently disagreed about something like this before?
[ 00:24:38:00 ] - [ 00:24:45:00 ]
Um I don't think so. Yeah wait wait just you wait until we get to some of the later. Oh sure yeah.
[ 00:24:45:00 ] - [ 00:24:51:00 ]
No no no no I'm when we get to some of the later works. Oh my goodness. Oh yeah no I know I know
[ 00:24:51:00 ] - [ 00:24:54:00 ]
it's gonna be fun that's that's the point that's why that's why I wanted to go on this journey
[ 00:24:54:00 ] - [ 00:24:59:00 ]
with you John because I know you're gonna be like no no no no no no no no no no no. It's it's
[ 00:24:59:00 ] - [ 00:25:03:00 ]
buckle up dear readers because it's uh are they reading this are they reading a transcript of
[ 00:25:03:00 ] - [ 00:25:10:00 ]
the podcast? No uh it's it's gonna get bad.
[ 00:25:10:00 ] - [ 00:25:28:00 ]
So the uh
[ 00:25:29:00 ] - [ 00:25:34:00 ]
Before we go, I did want to touch on the fact that they pushed back the Star Wars movies
another, I think a year if I read it right.
[ 00:25:34:00 ] - [ 00:25:35:00 ]
Yeah, pushed back a year.
[ 00:25:35:00 ] - [ 00:25:42:00 ]
Makes sense. They pushed back Tenet, which I'm really excited about, but also Mulan and a bunch of other stuff that they had coming out.
[ 00:25:42:00 ] - [ 00:25:48:00 ]
Did I mention the name of my beer? Corona. Virus.
[ 00:25:48:00 ] - [ 00:25:53:00 ]
I'm bummed about Tenet. I was really excited about Tenet. Tenet looks great to me.
[ 00:25:53:00 ] - [ 00:25:59:00 ]
You know what, if because he obviously wants to release in the theaters and I'm all for that. Love me some Nolan.
[ 00:25:59:00 ] - [ 00:26:08:00 ]
So if it's mid 2021 and I'm in an AMC theater, which is the one down the road and I'm watching Tenet, that's great.
[ 00:26:08:00 ] - [ 00:26:10:00 ]
You know, good times are good.
[ 00:26:10:00 ] - [ 00:26:13:00 ]
Yeah, yeah. It's one of those things. It's not imperative that it be released now.
[ 00:26:13:00 ] - [ 00:26:18:00 ]
I'm still of the I'm still you know, this is going to sound.
[ 00:26:18:00 ] - [ 00:26:27:00 ]
I don't want this to come across as a bougie or anything, but I'm still of the of the of the club that I would probably pay 25, 30 bucks for a movie.
[ 00:26:27:00 ] - [ 00:26:30:00 ]
For my home, like, yeah, no, no.
[ 00:26:30:00 ] - [ 00:26:32:00 ]
Have you have you done that, though?
[ 00:26:32:00 ] - [ 00:26:35:00 ]
No, I have not. I haven't seen the ability to do that that much.
[ 00:26:35:00 ] - [ 00:26:38:00 ]
I know they talked about this on Amazon Prime.
[ 00:26:38:00 ] - [ 00:26:41:00 ]
Now, if you go to Amazon Prime, you can and I think it's changed now.
[ 00:26:41:00 ] - [ 00:26:50:00 ]
But when, you know, months ago, when when everything shut down, you could pay something like 20 bucks and watch something that was just in the theaters like yesterday.
[ 00:26:50:00 ] - [ 00:26:56:00 ]
Oh, interesting. OK, so they are moving forward with that model because I remember that at one point they were they were talking about like 60 bucks and 70 bucks.
[ 00:26:56:00 ] - [ 00:27:01:00 ]
I was like, that's a little too much. I think the next one and the one that I'm excited about is Bill and Ted three.
[ 00:27:01:00 ] - [ 00:27:04:00 ]
It's going to come out. Going to that's coming on. Yeah.
[ 00:27:04:00 ] - [ 00:27:11:00 ]
VOD. Well, I'm assuming it'll be available on Prime, but it's coming out VOD and I will pay, you know, whatever it is, 20.
[ 00:27:11:00 ] - [ 00:27:17:00 ]
I don't think it's 30, but I think it's more like 20 bucks for that because I want me some Bill and Ted.
[ 00:27:17:00 ] - [ 00:27:21:00 ]
Yeah, no, I'm totally fine with like 20 or 30 bucks is like it's like you buy the DVD.
[ 00:27:21:00 ] - [ 00:27:23:00 ]
Now, I'm assuming do these like expire like that?
[ 00:27:23:00 ] - [ 00:27:28:00 ]
They were that's to watch the movie. I think it's over 24 or 48 hours.
[ 00:27:28:00 ] - [ 00:27:30:00 ]
OK, so it's like a normal rental. You're buying. Yeah.
[ 00:27:30:00 ] - [ 00:27:34:00 ]
You're buying the experience. You are not buying the the film. You're not buying the movie.
[ 00:27:34:00 ] - [ 00:27:36:00 ]
Yeah. 20, 20 or 30 bucks. Yeah, I would pay that.
[ 00:27:36:00 ] - [ 00:27:40:00 ]
Like if somebody came out to me today and was like, hey, I give you 10 for 30 bucks. I do it.
[ 00:27:40:00 ] - [ 00:27:43:00 ]
Yeah, I'd pay that. You're not going to go to the theater anytime soon. So, yeah.
[ 00:27:43:00 ] - [ 00:27:46:00 ]
Yeah. Yeah. So totally. Yeah. I'm down with that. I get that.
[ 00:27:46:00 ] - [ 00:27:51:00 ]
And I'm sure other people are not for that. But again, you know, people want stuff free.
[ 00:27:51:00 ] - [ 00:27:56:00 ]
That's just how I want stuff free. But I mean, I am well for the choice movie.
[ 00:27:56:00 ] - [ 00:28:01:00 ]
I'm willing to pay top dollar. Yeah, I'm in agreement with that.
[ 00:28:01:00 ] - [ 00:28:04:00 ]
Instead of going to the theater, I was like, I like going to the theater.
[ 00:28:04:00 ] - [ 00:28:08:00 ]
But usually I would go see something like on a Tuesday, four weeks after it's released,
[ 00:28:08:00 ] - [ 00:28:11:00 ]
just so that I'm by myself and I can watch. No doubt. I was never.
[ 00:28:11:00 ] - [ 00:28:14:00 ]
This is this is this podcast is morphing into something else.
[ 00:28:14:00 ] - [ 00:28:19:00 ]
I was never a release weekend opening weekend. That's the word.
[ 00:28:19:00 ] - [ 00:28:22:00 ]
Opening weekend. I was never in that crowd. Never.
[ 00:28:22:00 ] - [ 00:28:26:00 ]
Because sometimes I don't need Star Wars. No, no, no.
[ 00:28:26:00 ] - [ 00:28:29:00 ]
It's even worse. Afternoon. Oh, it was a Sunday's afternoon.
[ 00:28:29:00 ] - [ 00:28:31:00 ]
Yeah. For me, just because I want to just because, yeah, I understand.
[ 00:28:31:00 ] - [ 00:28:36:00 ]
I understand where you're coming from. I do. And yeah, I think I think one of the best experiences I ever had
[ 00:28:36:00 ] - [ 00:28:44:00 ]
was actually going to see Force Awakens with my both my kids about four to five weeks after it come out.
[ 00:28:44:00 ] - [ 00:28:46:00 ]
I'd already seen it. But after it come out, they hadn't seen it yet.
[ 00:28:46:00 ] - [ 00:28:50:00 ]
And we were in an empty theater. It was great. It was best experience ever. Loved it.
[ 00:28:50:00 ] - [ 00:28:53:00 ]
Yeah. That tells you something, by the way. Empty theater. Yeah.
[ 00:28:53:00 ] - [ 00:28:57:00 ]
Yes. Yeah. That's what we need to do is we need to just be like, look, can you get in the theater?
[ 00:28:57:00 ] - [ 00:29:00:00 ]
Me and John will sit at opposite ends of the theater and we'll just watch the movie.
[ 00:29:00:00 ] - [ 00:29:04:00 ]
How much would it cost for us to watch it on a real movie theater experience?
[ 00:29:04:00 ] - [ 00:29:06:00 ]
Several thousand dollars.
[ 00:29:06:00 ] - [ 00:29:08:00 ]
So this is kind of a shorter episode because we've only been discussing two comics,
[ 00:29:08:00 ] - [ 00:29:11:00 ]
but we got some really good stuff coming up next week.
