StarWTF!? Episode 5: IG-88

In this episode, we discuss the ever-stable & always awesome bounty hunter IG-88. It's an assassin droid with seconds of screen time, but pages and pages of Expanded Universe backstory. And that story is intense.  

We also learn what "IG" stands for (it's not exciting at all) and how creative they were in naming all 4 IG's as well as IG-88's aptly named ship, the IG-2000. It's a longer episode than normal, but well worth the length.

And while we're at it, let's take a quick look at the many toy variations of IG-88.

The Book Was Better Episode 104: Zardoz (with guest host Violet!)

This week we journey back to the heady days of the late seventies when we read the novelization of the freakishly trippy Zardoz. The short version: hairy Sean Connery in a red mankini catching women in a net while his God - a giant floating stone head - vomits guns. I swear I'm not making any of this up! And to verify these wild claims is first time guest host and catch of the day: Violet! Convert to the cause by downloading now!
