The first thing they address on the new show is the elephant in the room, and the question on all our minds, why the change? Jimmy and Jason sum it up in one word, Independence. They explain that they can increase communication on their website, facebook page and other web elements without being filtered, and when they communicate it will be from them. They assured us that Clone Wars round ups, live shows and fear not, the Where's Kitster? campaign would still be in the podcast although they joked they contacted Kitster about the changes but not heard anything.
Once they had addressed this burning subject it was business as usual. Their first report was the big and happy news of George Lucas getting engaged to Mellody Hobson. They also speculate about sightings of the big G.L. around the Chicago area in particular Nike town.
The main part of the show (and quite rightly) was taken up talking to Director and Clone Wars man Dave Filoni. The interview was very insightful and it was interesting to hear that Dave Filoni doesn't know how long the show will run for. He asked the question to George Lucas who just said more or less "Carry on." As promised by the hosts they spend half an hour asking Dave questions posted by their readers and fans from their Facebook page. This added extra interatction which really makes you feel part of the show. I hope they do this more often as I tend to find this is lacking in other podcasts.
Last and by no means least is one of the regulars that we've all come to love, the "Billy Dee Williams quote of the week." I won't spoil where the quote comes from, but it's a good one.
The first show doesn't feel like a first show. It feels more like business as usual. Even the music at the end is the same. The show is full of high quality content, high production values, plenty of sound bites and professional hosts who know what they're doing. It's no wonder that this premiered as number one in its category on Itunes, and that was just the promo!
