StarWTF!? Episode 33: Dengar

Oh Dengar... You are such an odd man. What's with the toilet paper? And you look like you've put on some weight.

Yes, today we talk about one of the stranger Bounty Hunters in the Star Wars universe, Dengar. He's briefly seen in The Empire Strikes Back, and we've recently learned (DURING THE EPISODE!) that he's seen even more in Return of the Jedi. But thankfully he has an awesome role in the Clone Wars series, and is actually played by a super cool actor. Listen in for all of the details, as well as our list of the Top 5 Bounty Hunters from The Empire Strikes Back.

Dengar, also known as "Payback," was a Corellian bounty hunter and the pilot of the Punishing One. Brought up in the culture of swoop bikes and becoming a successful racer himself, Dengar also led a double life as a successful bounty hunter during the Clone Wars, becoming one of the galaxy's most efficient mercenaries; his work teamed him with the likes of bounty hunters such as Boba Fett and Bossk. Dengar would eventually give up the life of bounty hunting to pursue his other passion: swoop racing.

Scarjo A Go-Go Episode 38: Lucy, or, "100%"

We did it! We caught up! This is the last episode of Scarjo A Go-Go for a few months while we wait for the Blu-ray release of Age of Ultron. But I'm still going to give it 100% as we examine Scarlett Johansson's performance in crazy Frenchman Luc Besson's don't-let-the-facts-get-in-the-way-of-a-good-story science fiction action flick Lucy! Thank you so much for coming along for the ride!

The Book Was Better Podcast Episode 126: Tank Girl (with guest host Lia!)

This week is a BWB first as we read an outlandish book that not only strays wildly from the film, but appears to have complete contempt for it! It's the novelization of Tank Girl which thankfully has the manic energy of the comic book rather than the awfulness of the movie. And joining me on this post-apocalyptic tank ride is the wonderful Lia! This is a show unlike any other...
