In episode 58 we begin discussing the many themes of The Last Jedi and we start with failure. Did Luke learn from his past failures? If so, did it help Rey? Would Luke have benefited from more teaching experience before beginning his Jedi Academy? Also, was Luke's story arc from the original trilogy to the sequel trilogy logical and believable? Finally, how relatable was Luke in The Last Jedi? As usual, we begin the show with a comics update. We'd love you to join us as we delve deep into The Last Jedi. Don't resist.

In this episode, Alan, Mark, and Ryder discuss what part faith and self-confidence play in using the Force. From Luke Skywalker failing to lift his X-wing out of the Dagobah swamp to Rey mind tricking a stormtrooper, faith in the Force and oneself seems to be crucial.
