This week, Rob and Maria devote the show to their favorite TV shows. Before they get into TV talk, they dissect the new Star Wars film ‘The Last Jedi.’ Rob thinks this is the most important Star Wars film in the franchise and explains why. Maria unpacks her love of the slightly awkward, yet intense relationship between Kylo Ren and Rey.
From there, it’s all TV the rest of the way. They discuss the second season of Stranger Things and the events that unfolded within. They talk about the relationships between Mike and Eleven, Lucas and Max, all the craziness that happened in season 2.
Doctor Who enjoyed a bit of a resurgence at the end of Peter Capaldi’s tenure as the fan-favorite Time Lord. Rob and Maria ponder how much greater Capaldi’s Doctor could’ve been with he right companion and perhaps better writing.
