Mike (Caped Chronicles) joins Lou and Erik to discuss the upcoming film projects and George’s original plan for the sequels! Also, the live-action series may begin filming this Fall, we may be getting Detours on the streaming network, and we get a new Sith lord joining official canon!
Star Trek: Discovery loses its show runners, Millie Bobby Brown loses her patience with Twitter hatred, Chris Hardwick loses his fans, AT&T gains Time Warner, Apple gains Oprah, Netflix gains video games, and a police department offers free testing for your illegal drugs. Go figure.
Lou, Katie, and Erik take a look at what’s going on behind the current state of fandom and how to move forward in a positive, constructive way. We also take a look at what Jim Rash (Community) reveals about his upcoming role on Star Wars Resistance, the new Star Wars game announced at E3, some book announcements, and a lot of tangents!
Erik joins Lou and Lizzie this week! HBO greenlights a Game of Thrones prequel, major cast members leave The Walking Dead, DC brings back the “Vertigo” imprint, and some really good trailers get released.
The percentage of people shouting at each other on Twitter does not represent the percentage of fans who are truly enjoying their passion for Star Wars. So how to we continue to celebrate Star Wars in the midst of all this chaos? We believe there’s a positive path forward, and that’s what map out for you in this episode of The Outer Rim. We also take a look at fan debates that won’t die (Ewoks, midichlorians, who shot first, etc.), and Andrea & Fred give Erik a crazy idea and force him to pitch it as a new Star Wars film.
On this episode Katie shames Lou and Tim in The Last Jedi trivia, we learn about the inspirations for the conveyex scene in Solo, and Akbar’s last words are revealed!
Lou and Tim are joined by new network host, Katie, who clearly watches a LOT of TV! Tim gushes over Archer and Lou is like, totally into Bill and Ted. What was the best summer movie season ever?
Andrea presents Erik and Shannon with a barrage of popular/unpopular opinions, which they have to decide are either true or false. These range from silly (“Bacon is overrated”) to serious (“Money really can buy happiness”). This may be our most unusual episode yet, so be sure to join us for this week’s Getting Sidetracked!
Solo failed to meet projections, but is it actually a failure? If so, how does this affect the future of Star Wars? Fred joins Andrea and Erik to discuss the film’s performance on this episode of The Outer Rim.
Erik and Andrea are traveling back to The Outer Rim, and we want you to join us! That’s right, we’re spinning off from Echo Base and bringing you discussions on all kinds of Star Wars-related topics!
In this episode, we discuss rebooting the show, and we give a spoiler-filled analysis of Solo (don’t worry, we give plenty of spoiler warnings first!).
Are we treating Star Wars films differently than we treat other films (including other tentpole films)? It seems fans often treat Star Wars films as “events,” but might that be setting our expectations up for failure? This week we welcome Katie as a permanent host on Echo Base to look at Solo‘s performance at the box office and what it means (or doesn’t mean) to the world of Star Wars fandom. We then record an extended discussion segment with a spoiler-filled discussion of the Solo film (but don’t worry, we give plenty of spoiler warnings!).
A very special guest fills in for Lizzie and joins the discussion about Solo’s box office results, upcoming movies, and more!
