Screen Verdict wanted all of our listeners to have ample time to watch the new Star Wars film at least twice so they could easily point out any of the Star Wars related errors we inevitably make. So here is our perfectly timed review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
On the podcast Matt and Jonathan try to decide who is the Jedi and who is the apprentice, figure out which HBO show character is making Kylo Ren so sad, and take turns as stormtroopers trying to pick each other up at a bar.
