This week, we return to the world ofStar Wars in our ongoing series of in-depth retrospectives on the original six films, this time arriving at the best and most iconic Episode of them all: The Empire Strikes Back, a sequel that not only defined much of what we now think of as Star Wars, but created a sequel template that countless Hollywood franchises have since followed. For as widely appreciated and discussed as the film is, there is still a lot to learn from and discover about this great movie, something we strive to do in this discussion. Jonathan also gives his final thoughts on the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion, Sean talks a bit more about catching up with Rise of the Tomb Raider, and we cover a few pieces of stray entertainment news to round out the show.
