Chris Radtke is back as guest commentator despite Luke Skywalker’s repeated pleas to get off his lawn!


Chris Radtke



  • Starts with Rey telling Luke that the First Order is only getting stronger, and ends with Rey following Luke as he goes about his "day in the life" on Ahch-To.


  • Now Pete has to buy
  • 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 [[Wiki[edia:Hardware_Wars#Cast|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'.
      • Playing to his strengths of actor. If he had been "Luke Skywalker of Skywalker Castle" it wouldn't have been as good.
      • 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. His friend who is a film critic went to an advance screening and Radtke asked him if Luke wields his lightsaber at any point. When his friend couldn't give him a straight answer. he knew his expectations were going to be undermined.
