He's #3 on AFI's list of 100 best villains of all time... but does he deserve to be?

Daryl Smith and Jay Sherer are joined by Helen O'Hara from the Empire Podcast to dig deeper into the Dark Lord of the Sith, DARTH VADER.

  • Where does Darth Vader rank in our list of Star Wars characters?
  • Does the Prequel Trilogy hurt Darth Vader's journey through the Skywalker Saga?
  • Remembering the biggest twists in the Original Trilogy that involved Darth Vader...
  • Did Darth Vader deserve redemption?

And much, much more... including Helen O'Hara singing! You should listen just for THAT!
