Silver Linings Playback 4 – Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker


Once again, Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are rewatching a maligned film in hopes of finding a silver lining. They are finishing out the month of May with Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, the final chapter in what has been dubbed the Skywalker Saga.

Joel is fired up this week. As listeners of Hobo Radio may remember, he was not a fan of this film when it was originally released (you can hear that episode here) and his opinion hasn’t softened on his second viewing. He and Andy vent their frustrations with Rise of Skywalker and then, miraculously, find its silver lining.
