The Pop Show Podcast #18: ‘Rogue One,’ ‘Game Of Thrones’ and more

Leave a comment

Yeah, so, the trailer for a little move called “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” was released last week, and The Pop Show crew has a lot of thoughts and feelings about it.

When it came to “The Force Awakens,” I always tried to remain cautiously optimistic. Now that I’ve seen “The Force Awakens” and loved it, I’m trying to manage my expectations for “Rogue One.” I won’t lie. I’m ridiculously excited to see it.

In the podcast, we talk about the sexist trolls, who are complaining that “Rogue One” features another female lead and therefore everything about “Star Wars” is ruined. The more these jerks tighten their grips, the more awesome “Star Wars” movies will slip through their fingers. I go off on a bit of a rant about it in the podcast that kinda turns into this:


Other things discussed in this week’s podcast:

  • Smith and I tried to convince Peter to break up with “The Walking Dead,” because it’s turned into a frustrating shit show.
  • We talk about the latest “Game Of Thrones” trailer, and we’re downright giddy about its return later this month.
  • We try to encourage Ryan to stop living his life, and instead watch TV shows and movies, because life is too short to spend time with loved ones.
  • The “Suicide Squad” trailer is super fun, because it doesn’t want the stink of “Batman V Superman” on it.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
