Hyperbolic Tangent #1: Seeking Balance

Jared & Shawn have diverging opinions. No one is right. No one is wrong. There is a balance in the Force. Here’s what we thought from The Last Jedi.

SPOILER WARNING. DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST BEFORE WATCHING THE MOVIE. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.

      • Finn
      • Rey
      • Kylo
      • Old Man Luke
  • Overriding Themes
    • Let go of the Past
      • Let go of your expectations.
      • There is no happy ever after

    • TLJ did not set up EP 9 – it destroyed it
