WFTM Podcast Episode 23: Star Wars - Braxton's New Hope

We have another special episode for you this week. Who hasn't seen Star Wars?! Braxton hasn't! In this special edition, listen to Braxton's reaction to watching the original trilogy (Episodes IV -VI). Do the films hold up? Has nostalgia clogged up fans feelings? Will Braxton join the dark side or will he join the side of the good?? Find out in this special episode of The Working for the Mandroid podcast!

We hope to get back to regularly scheduled episodes soon. Until then, we hope you enjoy this Leslie-less episode of the WFTM podcast (she was too stuck in Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel to participate).

WFTM Podcast Episode 20.2: Tom Hiddleston is Attractive in This Movie

Spoilers abound in this week’s television talk. Big things happened on The Walking Dead (spoilers 31:38 to 41:25) and Doctor Who finally explained one of the things that bothered Leslie about Peter Capauldi’s casting (spoilers 41:54 to 48:07). We also take some time to determine if Crimson Peak is a horror film or something else instead. Also there’s news of new shows in development (including a continuation of Gilmore Girls!), talk of Back to the Future Day and lots of Star Wars shenanigans this week.
