Likely the episode everyone has been waiting for (though, if you skipped the prequels you may have missed some comedy gold). The Empire Strikes Back is a landmark film– a film other films will be compared to for all of cinematic history, similarly to Star Trek‘s Wrath of Kahn. How could this sequel outshine the original film that launched the entire franchise? What is it that people just love so much about this dark and unresolved tale?
This episode’s panel included Laura Fissel and Blaine Grimes.
