GUEST: STEFAN POKORNY AKA “THE DWARVENAUT”

Dwarven Forge was founded in 1996 by artist Stefan Pokorny, a medieval fantasy devotee -- and an avid Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast. As a classically trained, professional painter and sculptor, Stefan decided to create "real" dungeon terrain that would equal his incredible 25mm tall hero figures. After many months of painstaking design, sculpting and painting, he introduced the world's finest pre-painted miniature terrain in 1996.

Comedian Michael Brown and certified geek Richard McBain join Shane for a full on, spoilers-are-a-go Star Wars: The Last Jedi discussion. TLJ is proving to be divisive among the fans. Did our panel love it? Hate it? Do they launch porgs into low Earth orbit for fun and profit? Who is Shane's favorite new trilogy character? Is Snoke half the man the Emperor was? Casino scene: unnecessary? Tune in for all this and more!

Lucasfilm's The Last Jedi earned $19 million on its third Friday, a drop of just 23% from last Friday’s $24m day-eight gross. To wit, that’s a smaller “third Friday” drop than Force Awakens (-30%) and just slightly higher than Rogue One (-20%).
