AoG Podcast 179: The Force Awakens Reaction

In the first podcast of the new year, Jarys and Melissa discuss The Force Awakens after seeing it a second time. Much geeking out over characters and dialogue is had while flaws are hotly debated. Theories are thrown around, especially a certain romantic pairing you may have heard about online. Much comparison between this movie and and the prequels is made, to the detriment of the latter. In the end, so many spoilers are laid out that, if you have not seen this movie, I recommend you drop this podcast, drop everything, and see The Force Awakens.
[Edit: I, Jarys, listened to the podcast with Melissa just now and I found the leveling of talking over her was cringe worthy. Melissa says she doesn’t mind, but I wanted to call myself out. I was…..REALLY excited. Just…..so…ramblingly excited.]
Jarys Maragopoulos
Jarys Maragopoulos grew up in the suspiciously isolated Ojai valley. Having acted in about a dozen plays as a child, including radio comedy routines, Jarys escaped with a College acceptance letter they had forged out of a hallmark card and octopus Ink. They rode the trains and learned the way of the hobos until arriving at the idyllic city of San Francisco, home to Jarys' dreams. At the University of San Francisco, where they won a Bachelors in History from the Dean in a Kung Fu match, Jarys met their two best friends and stopped blushing when they told people their favorite movie was “Return of the Jedi”. Since that time Jarys has earned their teaching credential (without resorting to thaumaturgy), collected a small library, learned Sumerian, and fell in love.
That list is not causal, they promise.

[Jarys is Genderqueer and, consequently, uses they/their/them pronouns.]
