This week, the Lando Society spreads the love, Fred Flintstone recalls sharing The Wars with Pebbles, and we break down the latest Saga Blu-ray news, including audio of the new Krayt dragon sound effect and a new ending to Return of the Jedi.

  • Billy Dee Quote of the Week
    • Williams appeared on the TV show Three Ways to Get a Husband.
    • Jason and Jimmy discuss The Lando Society, which is petitioning for BioWare to include Lando Calrissian in The Old Republic. Members of the Society were protesting at PAX in Seattle last week while wearing blue shirts, Lando capes, and mustaches.
  • Star Wars in Pop Culture
    • Jason plays a clip from the two hosts' appearance on Steve Glosson's Geek Out Loud show last year. In the clip, the three podcasters discuss Glosson's vague memory of a CBS special where celebrities discussed the impact of Star Wars. Glosson specifically remembers that Fred and Wilma Flintstone shared their thoughts on the epic space franchise. After the clip ends, Jimmy provides more context. Back in 1984, CBS created a number of bumpers (clips that air right before and after commercial breaks) featuring Steven Spielberg, Magic Johnson, Fred Flintstone, and others talking about their Star Wars memories.
  • Jimmy interviews artist Tom Hodges at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con.
  • Jason and Jimmy discuss the various changes to the Star Wars films for the Blu-ray set, from the confirmed changes (CGI Yoda) to the rumored ones (post-unmasking ROTJ Vader being Hayden Christensen).
