Chris is extremely Pro hermit Luke. From a story perspective it's a curveball. Mark Hamill is not a great actor. Meta notes Stephen Colbert great president or greatest president. Exceptional voice actor but not a great actor in front of the camera. Mark Hamill's post Jedi career. So we weren't going to get Luke Skywalker Grizzle battle hero or stoic night. Or weisleder. Referenced ham salad from Hardware Wars. He just doesn't have the gravitas to deliver the the Luke Skywalker we thought he would be so instead we get weird dumpster guy. Playing to his strengths of actor ( if you had been Luke Skywalker of Skywalker Castle bold it wouldn't have been as good.

Luke in Return of the Jedi never seen fully comfortable with that power over that responsibility, he still the farm boy so it makes sense this is where his character would go. Meta notes Radke loves lawful good Captain America alignments. Chris would have liked to see Skywalker of Skywalker Castle but that's not we're going to get with this actor. Also he's an old man now and understand that you're not the same person you were in your twenties.

Alex in Oliver Twist voice raised please I want some more. The amount of expositional dialogue about politics and Star Wars were never satisfied the argument that these are movies for children. The 90s kids that love the prequels. Radkey in accusing voice I know you Alex Robinson I know what you're doing. PSN Regal Ozzy Osbourne slightly and he wants Warner Brothers to do with HBO max Prestige series for children. Detour in 2 OZ ancillary material and Jack Pumpkinhead. Luke the addresses directly FedEx vacations that he's going to show up with a laser sword. Also: laser sword. Quote laser sword quote is what people who are ignorance or don't care about Star Wars say so 4 stars minute fans it's a cell phone / self-deprecating way of referring to it, it's like calling it Star Trek track it takes a bit of self-awareness to appreciate. Gives us film study equivalent of New York University tuition mentions bigger Luke Theory. 100 Grand worth. Luke James the Cinematic High Ground when the power shift in the conversation. Melanocytes where would you get a go away doormat? Call out to Kevin Maura and Joe dator. Chris Luke Skywalker is the Ruiner of unfindable planets. Tatooine was supposed to be the plant that was the farthest from the right side of the universe but since Luke Skywalker was born there now every movie has to be sat there. In 10 years time October will be a tourist destination. -->

Podcast

  • Now Pete has to buy StarWarsCity.fun.
  • Radtke is in the Josh Flanagan Memorial Lounge (Josh got the naming rights this season).
  • Radtke is extremely pro-hermit Luke:
    • From a story perspective it's a curveball.
    • Mark Hamill is not a great actor. He's an exceptional voice actor but not a great actor in front of the camera.
      • Mark Hamill's post-Jedi career.
    • So we weren't going to get "Luke Skywalker, grizzled battle hero" or "stoic knight and wise leader". Referenced: Ham Salad from Hardware Wars.
      • He just doesn't have the gravitas to deliver the the Luke we thought he would be, so instead we get 'weird dumpster guy'.

      • Mark Hamill is at the top of his weirdo game delivering a great weirdo performance.
  • The map to Luke Skywalker literally leading to behind the Safeway.
Before the movie came out, Radke's wife bought him the Luke Skywalker figure from this movie and there was no lightsaber.

This is not Josh's Luke, but our Luke is different. Luke in Return of the Jedi never seen fully comfortable with that power over that responsibility; he's still the farm boy so it makes sense this is where his character would go. Radtke would have loved to see Luke Skywalker of Skywalker Castle but that's not we're going to get with this actor. Plus, Radtke's an old man now too and so he understands that you're not the same person you were when you were 18.
