Rank #2: Blah Wars #75: The Rise Of Skywalker Teaser Trailer Reaction
John and Jude reform to discuss the Episode IX trailer and the film’s finally revealed trailer. We also have some catching up to do, including John’s exchange with Richard E Grant at a recent recording of Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast (this episode will be available on YouTube later this year), the fact that we are both working together again and therefore able to record more shows. We also return to the subject of the “Wish” sponsored advertisements we keep seeing on our Instagram feeds, and the bizarre products we are being targeted with (see Blah Wars #56 for more on this). This episode was recorded in an Oxfordshire pub, early on a Saturday using handheld recorders. We didn’t know at the time but there was a great deal of digital audio interference from our mobile phones throughout the show. In addition to this, you’ll also hear clinks, chinks, glass being smashed, and the ever increasing sound of a pub as it fills with hungry people. Never the less, we hope you enjoy it. In addition to this, a further 18 minutes of conversation was recorded and uploaded to our Patreon
Rank #3: Blah Wars #70: The Force Awakens Live Watch-Along
It's the TV premiere of The Force Awakens. John presents a live watch-along video broadcast on YouTube, with a healthy audience of regular listeners chatting away and everything. The video has been taken down on copyright grounds, sadly, however, here is the audio of the whole thing, more or less. Advert breaks have been edited out and the overall sound quality is not great. One for the completists? The video will be available to our Patreon subscribers at some point soon.
Rank #4: Blah Wars #62: We want an open-world Star Wars video game
On this week's show, we share the sad news that John Williams has been hospitalised, forcing him to cancel a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. There's also been some news of theft from the Mandalorian set in Manhattan. What was taken and will this get leaked online? The main talking point this week is our vision for an Open-world Star Wars video game in the style of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption series. Aside from these, we also discuss Jude's obsession with ASMR, follow up on last week's Mike Zeroh rant with some startling revelations about his influence on the press, play a a few rounds of Star Wars 'Who Am I?', even reveal the first records we bought. We've also recorded the first of our Monthly Payload episodes which are only available to our Patreon subscribers. Head to patreon.com/blahwars for more information on how to get these extra episodes and unlock other bonus content.
Rank #5: Blah Wars #55: Everything We Know About Episode IX
The filming of Star Wars: Episode IX is well underway and we've been looking at photos taken at the location shooting. What do these images tell us about JJ Abrams conclusion to the sequel trilogy? It's been an exciting week for casting news too, with Matt Smith and Dominic Monaghan joining the likes of Richard E Grant and Naomi Ackie in the new movie and we're speculating about the nature of their roles. John's got even more beef with the prequels and Jude nearly dies laughing at his argument against the Battledroids, plus what's the deal with Kylo Ren's helmet? Is there more than one? If not, then how did he even rescue it from Starkiller base? And is John losing his love for the sequels? All this and more in the latest episode of Blah Wars.
Rank #6: Blah Wars #47: The People Vs Kathleen Kennedy
YouTube is awash with furious vloggers claiming that Kathleen Kennedy is single-handedly destroying the Star Wars franchise. John and Jude read out your feelings on the matter and discuss online abuse and diversity in the Star Wars franchise. Bit of a political one this week, with next to no laughs. Family fun. Contains strong language.
Rank #7: Blah Wars #46: Your thoughts on Solo
We asked our listeners for their thoughts and feelings on Solo: A Star Wars Story and we received dozens of responses. On the show this week John and Jude read and respond to as many as they can. Thanks very much to everyone who got in touch!
Rank #8: Blah Wars #41: May the 4th be with you
It's Bradie's birthday and it's also Star Wars day. On the show this week we've got more Solo sepculation, some minor episode 9 news and the Star Wars filmed ranked, according to Blah Wars.
Rank #9: Blah Wars #37: Episode IX Speculation (Jude’s Freudian Slip)
Having done such a great job on our Last Jedi commentary, Bradie joins us once again to speculate over the final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy; JJ Abrams' Episode IX (working title 'Black Diamond'). Once again, she's providing next level insight, offset by the purile silliness of John and Jude.
Rank #10: Blah Wars #35: The Silence Of The Porgs
This week's episode was recorded at the Baltimore State Hopsital for the Criminally Insane, where John is being incarcerated, under the care of Dr Chilton. On the show this week John gives you the low-down on the Last Jedi novel (available to buy now) and we discuss Mark Hamill finally recieving his star on the Hollywood Boulevard walk of fame. Also on the show this week, the toothpaste story, the brie story, how to make a chicken bomb and unmissable events going on this month.
