The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy

Stargirl.

Geoff Johns has written some of the biggest stories in the DC Comic universe over the years, but his most personal project was his first, Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E in which he created the character of Courtney Whitmore who was based on his sister that had passed in a plane crash and who has now been brought to life in her own show on the DC Universe app.

In this episode of The 602 Club hosts Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris talk about the new show, Stargirl. We discuss our familiarity with the character, comic to screen, Courtney Whitmore, the tone and pace, Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Brainwave, connecting, soundtrack and score, ratings and our recommendations.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Final Season.

In March of 2013, in the wake of the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney, it was as if millions of voices suddenly cried out, but instead of being silenced, they continued to speak clearly with one voice saying, #SaveTheCloneWars. Because of the dedication of the fans and Dave Filoni, on July 19, 2018, a day that will be long remembered, a new hashtag was born #CloneWarsSaved, the series would return for it's final season to wrap up properly!

In this episode of The 602 Club hosts Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris welcome John Mills as we celebrate the final season of The Clone Wars! We discuss our relationship with the series, The Bad Batch arc, the Ahsoka Walkabout arc, the Siege of Mandalore/Order 66 arc and the music.
