The Nose On Roseanne Barr, Samantha Bee, And 'Solo'

Solo is the tenth feature-length, live-action Star Wars film. It is the fifth Star Wars prequel. It is the second Star Wars anthology film (following 2016's Rogue One), and it's the second Star Wars movie to come out in just the last six months (along with The Last Jedi).

It is, though, a number of Star Wars firsts too: It's the first Star Wars picture to have its director(s) fired midway through production. It's the first to star Woody Harrelson. It's the first Star Wars movie that may well lose money.

Also this week: Roseanne Barr lost her show, and Samantha Bee didn't lose hers.

Other possible topics include:


  • Rebecca Castellani - Scholar of modern literature
  • James Hanley - Co-founder of Cinestudio at Trinity College
  • Pedro Soto - Account executive at DRT Power Systems in New Haven
