Ep. 26: Darth Villain

Episode 26, ‘Darth Villain’, on The Force Awakens

Dave and Steve go back… not to the future, but to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Be warned, while there are of course spoilers for the movie, they spend a lot of time talking about the idea of the movie rather than the movie itself. Very meta.
