In Defence of The Last Jedi

Welcome to an emergency episode of In Defence Of! We don’t typically talk about movies still in theaters, but today we make a special case for a special movie. In episode 14 of IDO, the team discuss and defend the second instalment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, The Last Jedi!

Your temper-tantrum-throwing, bare-chest-showing host, Andrew ‘Kylo Ren’ Steele/Darth Steelius is joined by the hotshot flyboy, cantina space cowboy, Billy ‘Poe’ Dodson and his sidekick BB-Kitty-8, and a man not afraid to rough it with the boys, kick it with the droids, or fight his way through a whole Imperial Army, Todd ‘Leia/Organa/Skywalker/Solo’ Horan.
