Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.
This Week: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Tread Perilously adds a special extra episode to finally discuss, at length, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Somehow, Palpatine has returned. Kylo Ren goes searching for him, then hunts Rey. Rey looks for a dagger which will give her a clue to a wayfinder which may lead her to Palpatine. Lando reappears as Leia and Rose fade into the background. But is all of this as Sheev has foreseen? And will it lead Rey to decide who and what she is?
Justin and Erik discuss just how little director J.J. Abrams seems to care. Justin continues to sing the virtues of Dave Filoni while Erik tells him the truth about Mustafar. They continue to disagree if Kylo can be the primary antagonist. In the weeds, they find a possible better version of the sequel trilogy and show some restraint by only discussing the film for 65 minutes.
Also, the Knights of Ren make an appearance.
