Writer-producer-director, Robert Meyer Burnett, and the Imagination Connoisseurs of The Post-Geek Singularity look for the good inside all the speculation surrounding the next installment of the Star Wars saga on episode #211 of ROBSERVATIONS.
Join in on the fun as RMB also discusses the following topics:
• Rob uses a letter from Imagination Connoisseur, Justin Anderson, to take a closer look at the successes and failures of the latest trilogy of Star Wars movies.
• The cast of this last set of Star Wars movies is great – but are they given enough to do?
• And as long as we’re in the Star Wars universe, Rob gives some time to a letter from a fellow Imagination Connoisseur who explains just why those capital ships don’t land on Tatooine in STAR WARS: EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE, but seem to land and take-off at will in STAR WARS: EPISODE III – REVENGE OF THE SITH.
• Dave Chappelle’s latest comedy special on Netflix, “Sticks and Stones”, gets rave reviews and the full ROBSERVATIONS treatment from Rob.
• Rob takes a closer look at TOTAL RECALL (the Arnold Schwartzenegger-starrer, not the Colin Ferrell version).
• How do you score the Star Trek TV series? Rob discusses the new documentary on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and the relative strengths of DS9 and ST:TNG.
• An Imagination Connoisseur writes in to ask Rob what he listens to when he’s working.
• Rob continues the conversation with a discussion of possible enhancements to ROBSERVATIONS and other Burnettwork programing in the future – what would you like to see (let us know).
• Imagination Connoisseur, James M, asks how much leeway viewers should give historical fiction when it comes to altering history to keep the story focused and interesting.
• And finally, Imagination Connoisseur, Terry Flynn, writes in with his concerns that the latest send-up by The Auralnauts indicates the problems with Star Wars may have crossed an important rubicon.
All that, plus more letters, SuperChat questions and much more!
