What kind of episode do we record after spending forty-five minutes trying to get our cameras to work and failing? Apparently a fairly normal one, albeit an audio only installment. In this, we discuss the Good Omens casting news, the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, and Netflix’s atrocious Death Note adaptation. Then we hit the con scene, where we talk about the Avalon Expo organizer disappearing mid-con and how much fun we had at Geek.kon last weekend.
And yes, we address the Nazi cosplayer and a bunch of other stuff.

I know that I shouldn’t use old inside jokes none of our readers will get as headlines, but I couldn’t resist this particular one as the most interesting rumor coming out of Star Wars-ville is that instead of just one Obi-Wan Kenobi film, they want to make three.
And these wouldn’t be a trilogy — each film would stand completely on its own. Three stand alone Obi-Wan Kenobi films.
Which I wouldn’t mind at all.
We’re still in the “crazy-ass rumor” phase of this particular piece of news, but since Ewan McGregor (the lone bright spot of the prequels) loves playing Kenobi so much, it’s not completely unbelievable.
Time will tell.
We’ve reported on some crazy Star Wars rumors in the past, but happily we’ve finally found a believable one. Part of the current plan for the franchise is to release “Spin off” films between “Proper Episodes.” Well, the current rumor du jour is that one of these spin off films will be one featuring a young Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The character is massively popular, and Ewan McGregor seems game, so I’m going to mark this one in the “credible” column. Nothing’s been announced officially though, so take this with the prerequisite grain of salt.
It seems like it would be awesome though.
