In this roundtable episode, we are joined by Becca Benjamin of Tarkin's Top Shelf to discuss our initial thoughts and reviews of The Last Jedi. What were our thoughts after our first viewings? How did our feelings on The Last Jedi change from our first viewings to our second? Did it meet expectations? 

We begin the show by talking about Canto Bight: Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. How did this collection of short stories tie into The Last Jedi? Does it add to the depth of TLJ? Is it required reading? 

Whether you are from somewhere or nowhere, we would be honored if you would join us.
