The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy
59: Spark of Rebellion in Vader

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

1983 would see the end of the Star Wars saga from a story point of view and it would be further cemented in the Special Edition and blu-ray release as Lucas seemed to put a big bow on the Rebel’s victory with galaxy-wide celebrations because of the Empire’s defeat, but as we all know the story is about to continue.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Rebel pilots Bruce Gibson and John Mills to talk about Return of the Jedi. We discuss our Episode VI experiences, Luke’s new lightsaber, tale of two halves, Luke loosing a step, going out like a punk, Jabba and Jedi, Luke’s plan, a question for two dads, the journey of Luke, the journey of Anakin, who’re you gonna call and our ratings.
