Get ready to travel across the galaxies with your friendly combination robot and the Millennium Falcon where we review Mighty Orbots and Solo: A Star Wars Story!
(0:00 – 52:00) Review: Mighty Orbots – This was a series that has taken years to be put out on DVD, and both Jonn and Dustin jump on the chance to review this great 80’s Saturday Morning Anime co-production cartoon! We’re actually not the only podcast to cover this show, as Anime 82 did it well over a decade ago that no one seemed to notice because of how obscure it was at the time. This also includes the voice actors that worked on this show like the late Gary Owens, other 1980’s cartoons talk, if Orbots had their own Soul of Chogokun toys, getting a hold of the Techno Police 21c Bluray if you order the Blade robot online, if Orbots and God Mars are a fair comparison and much more!
(52:00 – 53:25) Right Stuf Promo: Dustin babbles on for a minute to convince you the listener to buy everything and everything from Right Stuf!, because you totally should, and we should TOTALLY GET PAID (but we kid since the review material we receive is very sufficient, so thank you Right Stuf!)
(53:25 – 1:32:15) Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story – Both Jonn and Dustin enjoyed this film despite it coming out a mere few months after that debacle Last Jedi hit the main screens, which the hosts own review to this movie is very positive in general. This also gets the hosts talking about how Disney might screw up Star Wars in the future and that Han really did shoot first in the cantina.
(1:32:15 – 2:11:45) Closing Remarks – This goes right into the hosts opinions on the Supreme Court decision on Colorado baker case, John McAfee running for the libertarian party in the upcoming election, Tara Strong influence on Teen Titans Go, can President Trump really pardon himself?, the live action American Dad party and much more!
OP1 – Orbots, UNITE!

Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!
(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!

So for this years Thanksgiving special, we’ll talk about something we haven’t focused on in years, and that is an entire episode dedicated to video games. So join Dustin, Jonn and Josh to talk about Vidjer Gamez!
(0:00 – 01:26:10) Thanksgaming Special – This is a discussion mostly of what the podcast has been playing in our spare times when were not doing podcasts. Jonn and Josh talk extensively about the Nintendo Switch, Mario Odyssey and Zelda Breath of the Wild. Josh mentions the new Sonic Forces and Mania games, and Dustin goes into Gundam Versus, Final Fantasy X, Friday the 13th: The Game, and Windjammers. Of course other topics arise like Star Wars games, EA being the worst lottery company in the world (followed by how long it would take to unlock their crap), Final Fantasy collections that might not come out, and some banter about how Dustin never talked about the con he went to nor anything about the SNES Classic.
(01:26:10 – 1:51:35) Closing Remarks: Chris Chan spreads his Hyperdimensional Waifutunia autism across the state of Virgina for a week, The death of Charles “NotMarilyn” Manson and Della Reese, Political Sexual Misconduct talk, and much more!

What better way to end out 2016 but to travel back long ago, in a galaxy far far away. This time Dustin and Jonn are joined by previous guests Daft and Vekou to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One.
(0:00 – 1:07:30) Review – Star Wars: Rogue One Review – The council of nerds have all gathered to talk about the recent Star Wars film, which seems to be divided in the fandom of who likes and dislikes this movie. All hosts mention the movies strengths and weaknesses, as well as talk about other Star Wars material. This of course gets us talking about story lines in video games, nerd conversations on Clerks movie levels, and much more.
(1:07:30 – 3:02:44) Post-Christmas Holiday Closing Remarks – A lot has happened over the past month, and the hosts have something to say about it. Aside from talking about what we all got for Christmas, we give RIP shout outs to Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher and George Michael passings. We also mention convention talk from Daft’s North East Comic Con review and seeing the Hanna Barbera exhibit, where as Dustin went to experience what happens when a high school puts together a comic con in the middle of nowhere. There is also discussion of a book about Tommy Wiseau, talk of terrible and cool animation industry people, Dustin desire to meet Jerry Beck and Fred Patton, abandoned Flinstone parks, the recent ramblings of Peter Fay, who to ban from our chat, and much more.

2015 is over, and now we move onto the year of 2016. 2015 was a pretty fun year from the podcast group, especially when Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out to end it all. So this years podcast special is about our hosts giving their take on the recent flick from a galaxy far away galaxy…
(0:00 – 1:11:15 ) Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Review – In previous podcast episodes, Dustin and Jonn seemed a bit skeptical to how this new Star Wars film will turn out. With both parties seeing the film along with past podcast guest Daft, the three sit down and break down the film to their understanding. So yes, that means we will spoil this film, so go see it before you hear this podcast. They also talk about the Star Wars series in general, how people don’t know the origins of Good Burger, what it was like to see Star Wars now than the prequel films, fan theories to the latest Star Wars film, our thoughts on the Iron Man movies, Dustin thoughts on the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film, and much more.
(1:11:15 – 1:51:20 ) Yuletide Closing Remarks – All three hosts talk about what they did and got for Christmas, along with Daft experience with seeing the Hateful Eight, The last Hunger Games movie, how Right Stuf hooked us up, Bennett the Sage Bubblegum Crisis review rant, Dustin using Twitch, the Nickelodeon Slam Block, and much more.

Dustin never knew about this till James Rolfe had to talk about it…
