Mike is on assignment down at the J’ore so Alex returns to the Bantha’s Den for another round of STAR WARS chit-chat, this time with Josh Flanagan. Why do the prequels make people so angry? Is George
Lucas really more machine, now, than man? Speaking of which, what’s the deal with Lobot anyway? If you aren’t sick of STAR WARS yet you will be by the end of this one.

It’s The Ink Banthas Show! Mike is wrapped up in house buying and moving mayhem, so it’s a Very Special All Star Wars Episode this week with Alex and guest host: Pete the Retailer. Hopefully this will become a recurring feature, as I (Mike) really enjoyed listening to the two of them talk about everybody’s favorite trilogy (and, I guess, uh, the prequels too). They make some very sound points, especially in picking apart Luke’s “plan” to save Han from Jabba’s clutches. Have a listen!

The Holidays are behind us, so Alex and Mike creep groggily back into The Lair to catch up and discuss the things that happened over Hannukah, Christmas and New Years. Warning: the first ten minutes or so are particularly rusty, as the Panthers shake off all the egg-nog and candy-canes and struggle to get their heads back into the game. Hear about Alex’s Ukelele, Mike’s Cello and Superior Singing Voice, and an account of a visit to the Metropolitan Opera. Also: a listener call is answered, and Alex poses an ethical conundrum for us to ponder. Happy 2012 everyone!

Blammo creator, Noah Van Sciver, calls into the Panther’s Lair from an undisclosed location out of the streets of Denver, Colorado, providing a heightened sense of tension for the entire episode, as we worry he may be struck by a speeding car at any moment. Speaking of cars, Mike’s just been to the International Car Show, and marveled at the new line of 2012 Fords and Chevys. Also, we respond to a listener question about whether we have pop-culture rules for our significant others. For example, could any of us really be with a lady who doesn’t like Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings? Is that a deal-breaker?

A while back, Alex was wondering if there was room in the show for a recurring “Star Wars Minute” feature. This week we find out the answer: NO. Any attempt to talk about Star Wars for one minute, clearly devolves into a half-hour segment about the quality of the prequels; the quality of Return of the Jedi; the quality of the action figures, and on and on… We can’t afford to do this every week! So, here’s the one and only Star Wars minute. But, don’t fret, non Star Wars fans, we’ve got The Desert Panther in the house, and before we get to arguing about nerd minutia, we have a follow-up on The Sexy Human chair story from episode 87, and a lively discussion about gift-giving.
