The Narrative Imperative
14 - Halloweentown
Have you ever realized how the Disney Channel Original Movie, Halloweentown, is basically a complete remake of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope? You will after listening to this podcast, because we obviously can't go more than 30 minutes without talking about Star Wars. Sorry, not sorry.

Episode starwarsreturnofthejedi: 13 - Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi
Hot takes alert! In our episode about Return of the Jedi, Laura and Jared get controversial; Yoda is a bad mentor, Ghost Hayden Christiansen is one of the best edits George Lucas made to the original trilogy, the new Ewok song is far better than the Yub-Yub song, and Bobba Fett still sucks.

12 - Hedwig and the Angry Inch
In this week's episode, Laura and Jared switch things up by reviewing a Broadway musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Sorry for spoiling that but at this point you should be expecting it. Next time we will be discussing the musical 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch', which apparently has nothing to do with Harry Potter! Check it out on YouTube now so you can be caught up for our episode!...
7 - Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Part 1
In this episode, which covers the first two acts of Empire Strikes Back, Jared and Laura pick up where they left off with A New Hope: gushing about Princess Leia. We rave about the snappy first act, discuss the convoluted and slow, but still entertaining second act, bask in one of the greatest romances in the galaxy (although they might want to think twice about having kids), and Jared goes on a whiskey-fueled rant about Boba Fett fans. This episode is sponsored by the Maury Show, but for...
