20 from 2020

I made a lot of videos and podcast episodes in 2020. To narrow down which ones I’d pick for this video, I divided them into four categories and picked five from each one. I also talk for a little while at the beginning about my plans for making videos and podcasting in the new year, and especially my plans for writing.

Star Wars: A New Viewing Order

Release Order, Chronological Order, Machete Order, everyone has an opinion about the best order for watching the Star Wars movies. I have a new order to recommend: the Spoiler Order, one that preserves the famous “twists” of the franchise for longer than either the Release Order or the Machete Order.

…About Fanon

One of the best parts about being a fan is coming up with your own theories and stories about the stories you love. But when does it go too far? That’s what I talk about in this episode of my podcast.

…Rewrites Star Wars

As much as I love Star Wars, there are definitely some things I would change about it.  This is the first in my new “Stephen Rewrites” feature.  In Part 1, I talk about changes meant to enhance the Star Wars movies as we know them.  In Parts 2 and 3, I change the stories themselves.  Part 2 covers my complete rewrites of Episodes I-VI, and Part 3 covers Episodes VII-IX.

…About Prequels

Once a story is told and you’re wondering where to go next, sometimes the best place to go is back to the beginning…or even further.

…About Adam Driver

Adam Driver, the star of Star Wars and Marriage Story, was recently forced to leave an interview with NPR’s Terry Gross before it completed.  I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about this incident.
