DIMINISHING RETURNS: A comedy podcast about movie sequels, prequels, spin-offs and reboots. Hosted by Allen and Chris. WARNING: Contains Scottish accents and spoilers.

With The Last Jedi being released today, Allen and Chris look at JJ Abrams’ soft reboot of the biggest franchise in Sci-Fi

We’d lived through the prequels, old hope had died, but Disney had bought Lucasfilm and that meant a new trilogy of sequels, starting with JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it had Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker back. Could it live up to expectations? Was this just an exercise in fan service? And why does Harrison Ford look so engaged in this film?

In this episode we discuss

-Scottish Star Wars characters

-Who do the First Order Remind us of?

-Is Rey a Mary Sue?

-Young gifted and black (Stormtroopers)

-Camp German Commandants

-How do the new kids on the star destroyer (Kylo Ren, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Rey) fare?

-and friend of the show, Judy Frary gives us a run down of the plot of the original Star Wars films. The only issue? She hasn’t seen any of them.

Not our Star Wars: The Force Awakens episode, which due to some production delays will be out later this week. Apologies.

Chris hastily recorded this mini-ep on his phone, in his bed, hungover. So it doesn't have the ususal wall-of-sound production values that you've come to expect. But you can now imagine him in his bed. So that should more than make up for it.

Anyway The Force Awakens is our next episode (episode 41). Make sure you have subscribed so you get it as soon as it drops.
