Brief summary of show:

Wayne & Trev discuss how Star Wars has influenced and shaped their lives since boyhood and compare the impact of the original trilogy with the general apathy that surrounds everything else in the Star Wars universe since. 

Ultimately they conclude as to whether it's still cool to love Star Wars as a middle aged guy or should they turn to the dark side and grow up!

Bullet points of key topics & time stamps:

●Trev: 4:23 

I mean, I remember being an infant school and having like a little Harrington Lambretta jacket and thinking it was like Han Solo sort of waistcoat. Yeah. Obviously it had arms and idiot mittens, it also I think it was probably a tank top or something. It probably was to be on it but yeah, I honestly thought it was like the jacket was a Han Solo jacket.

 

●Trev: 17:08 

Obviously, you had Jango Fett? Yeah as you know, Boba Fett to us when we were kids had so much mystery about him. So much mystery because the figure got banned because he had a flying rocket out of his back and then  re released. He folks, I think Boba Fett came out as an action figure before you'd even seen him.

 

●Trev: 35:19 

Can you imagine me and you walking about about at Christmas? drunk after about 15 pints of Guinness? Absolutely. walking around with over 1000 pounds worth of gear. Imagine what state we would be in.
