NOP starts 2016 off with a bang as we discuss the latest Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. Many passionate nerds join us for the discussion, including Ricky Glore, Ryan Bond, Robert Shumate, DJ Fink, Dominic Cianciolo, Orion Couling, and newcomer Chris Lloyd. Due to our various feelings on the film, there is no specific outcast for this episode. What did we all think of Episode VII? Is Kylo Ren redeemable? Are there too many familiar plot devices, or does the film find its own voice? And what do we hope Episode VIII and IX bring to the table? We chat all this and more on the fantastic episode!
