Did the "Dark Times" thrive with unprecedented wealth and prosperity?
Did currency differences hinder trade between galactic sectors?
Was Jar Jar a fit candidate to be your accountant?

These are questions we'll attempt to answer in today's episode of Freakono...erm Loose Canon!

And please someone help us define what conscription means!

Are you Force sensitive? Are you kinda moody? Do you dance to the beat of your own Yub Nub, and apprenticeships just really cramp your style? Come join the Dark Jedi!

...or don't, whatever, who cares.

Come with us and learn why some Jedi just want to watch the world burn. Why some do not sew. And why some [insert 3rd nerd pandering analogy here].

As if it wasn't horrible enough to feature man-eating, religious zealot teddy bears in Return of the Jedi, they had to throw in a man-eating pit too. Oh, but that's just what happens on the surface (literally). Join us while we deconstruct the inner-workings (literally) of the sarlacc pit. Who knows, you might think it's just the cozy getaway you were looking for. So come on in, there's a spot for you (literally).

State-of-the-art gadgets and armor? Check.
Badass attitude? Check.
Sweet cargo sweat pants? Check.

Boba Fett is the complete package. Join us as we explore the man, the myth, the legend all the while trying not to offend the “Cult of Boba.” Seriously though, if you're adhering strictly to canon, Boba Fett...leaves a little something to be desired. Luckily our name isn't Tight Canon, am I right guys?

Well it's that time of year folks! A time for rushing home to be with family, ingesting mind altering substances and gathering 'round with all the townsfolk to become one with a tree. Nope, it's not Christmas at the Loose Canon household. We're talking about Life Day, the yearly tradition on Kashyyyk depicted in the 1978 psychodelic train wreck that was the Star Wars Holiday Special.

Join us in revelry as we figure out whether or not the weird stuff we witnessed during the show actually happened or if our minds just fabricated the whole experience. Seriously, we could have just made this all up and you wouldn’t know the difference.

Join the trio for the last episode of season one. The boys get all meta on your ass as they attempt to justify their own existence in a post-Expanded Universe world. Did the Disney Death Star 'splode your fandom this year? Did George Lucas hate the EU anyway? It's not cause for alarm, folks. Listen to the boys explain why you should embrace the new Legends stamp. The Lucasfilm Story Group can go about their business. Move along.

Plus basically Obi-Wan endorses Loose Canon in A New Dawn. So that's cool.

This was Alex's most eagerly anticipated episode to date, but you'll find out it's for the completely wrong reasons. Listen as the boys give a rundown of just who the "scum" hanging out with Darth Vader are in The Empire Strikes Back. Learn the gentlemanly, albeit loose, code of conduct amongst bounty hunters. Scratch your head at the prospect of seeking a spider web floating in space (Kud'ar Mub'at the Assembler) for neutral ground.

Come for the Bossk jokes, stay for the disappointment at having very brief coverage of Boba Fett (don't worry, he'll get his own episode).

Meet the most exclusive club in the galaxy: the Sith. With their mysterious origins as exiled Jedi, the Sith went through long growing pains, until finally reaching their stride. The boys go into detail about what it takes to make it as a Sith apprentice, why the 'rule of two' worked so well and how the greatest trick the Sith ever played was convincing the galaxy they were irrelevant.

Join us on the dark side, there will be cake.

Running a galactic empire is hard! Stress cracks start to show by the beginning of Return of the Jedi, and sure enough a cunning race of creatures is there to exploit it.

Join the boys as they discuss the cutest, most blood thirsty and most "easily religious" teddy bears of the galaxy. Beyond the Ewoks, the Battle of Endor shows how the Sith fell to their greatest enemy yet: bureaucracy.

Many Bothans died to give us the Emperor's Instagrams.

To wipe or not to wipe? No this episode isn't about personal hygiene in the galaxy, it's about droids. To be honest, the role of droids in the galaxy makes the boys a tad uncomfortable. Were they mere tools meant only to benefit the master, or were they true, albeit inorganic beings sentenced to a life of toil and eventual dismemberment? Maybe by the end of this episode, you'll be ready to rid the universe of "meatbags."

Bonus points for those who recognize the theme from our end credits.
