Watching_Return_of_the_Jedi_for_the_FIRST_Tim...

Mike has never seen Star Wars. We had to fix that. Join Jay Sherer as he watches Star Wars with a newbie and gets his reaction! Jay and Mike break down Episode 6: Return of the Jedi to see what it's like for someone who has never seen Star Wars to watch it for the first time!

What are Mike's thoughts on Return of the Jedi and the close of the Original Star Wars Trilogy? Does Return of the Jedi hold up 38 years later? Is Luke Skywalker cooler in Return of the Jedi than the previous two Star Wars films? In this full length Star Wars podcast, Mike and Jay discover what it's like to watch Star Wars for the first time as an adult. Plus, there's a great Star Tours reference in there! What was already spoiled for Mike by Star Wars being so popular in our current culture?

Jay and Mike tackle all those questions and more.
