Side Track 7 - The Force Awakens

If you've ever listened to Derailed Trains of Thought, you know that Tim and Nick mention Star Wars almost every episode.  If you're not living in a cave, you know that a new Star Wars movie just came out.

I'll give you three guesses what this Side Track discussion is about. The first two guesses don't count.

Joining Nick and Tim is Weekly Hijack contributor and fellow Star Wars fan Zach Hayden.

SPOILER WARNING! Do NOT listen to this if you haven't seen the movie.

  1. The cool new place at the end (Luke's hermit island) is Skellig Michael, the site of an Irish monastery in the middle ages. I agree with the criticisms here (including the superweapon's irrelevance to the plot), and I'm looking forward to seeing it again.

  2. Also, I just want to make a note--near the end, I say that The March of the Resistance song sounds like something else, but I can't remember what. I checked and to me it's reminiscent of the Flag Parade from Episode 1's soundtrack.
