This is the Generation X-Wing Podcast FB site. We discusses pop culture from 80's to now. A modern look at our retro lifestyle.

Dec 27, 2017

It's been a couple weeks since the release of Episode 8: The Last Jedi. It is obvious that this is one of the most divisible movies in the franchise. Why the love? Why the hate?

St3ve (from the Outer Rim Garrison of the 501st) joins us again to share his views on The Last Jedi and why Star Wars fans may be feeling the way they do?

Check out our website for the full vids of the sampled reviews.

Dec 21, 2017

Rob is bridging the generation gap by inviting his brother, Steve Williams and Dad, Jim Williams to talk about a holiday staple: A Christmas Story.

We not only look back at the wonderful moments of this classic 1983 Christmas movie, Dad shares his experiences living during this time when the Olds would freeze up, furnaces would backfire, dogs would chase you down the street and the only way to settle a issue was a good ol' fashion beating.

Rob also opens his Commonwealth Secret Santa gift!

We hope you enjoy this special episode.

Greetings programs!

Rob and Jamie are joined again by Karl Germyn (while Anil is AFK) to talk about a cult movie franchise that had a major impact on our young lives: Tron.

We look into the 1982 original series and discuss its revolutionary style while trying to figure out why it was deemed unsuccessful.
