One of the best ways to learn about film history is to take a popular movie and work backwards, to discover its many influences. And there is perhaps no movie that embodies the fascinations, obsessions and inspirations of its director more than STAR WARS!

Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they examine a film that directly inspired STAR WARS every single week, starting with the original FLASH GORDON serials, which inspired George Lucas so much that he tried to make a FLASH GORDON movie, couldn't get the rights, and had to make STAR WARS instead!

Not every STAR WARS was a blockbuster smash. The Saturday morning cartoon show STAR WARS: DROIDS, starring Anthony Daniels as C-3PO and R2-D2 as himself, only lasted one season, despite featuring huge cameos from popular characters like Boba Fett and IG-88, and tons of ideas, vehicles, planets and even podraces which would eventually turn up in the prequel trilogy!

It was co-created by Oscar-winning sound designer Ben Burtt, and featured a theme song by Stewart Copeland from The Police! That's pretty cool, so maybe - just maybe - STAR WARS: DROIDS was... CANCELED TOO SOON!

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a trip to a galaxy far, far away to unearth this overlooked chapter in STAR WARS history, just before the premiere of their new STAR WARS podcast: EPISODE ZERO!

TEENS! IN! SPACE! The expensive Disney sci-fi mini-series EARTH*STAR VOYAGER was a pilot for a television show that never took off, about attractive and precocious space teens in the future, on a fifty year mission to find a new planet for humanity to live on!

Featuring the stars of REVENGE OF THE NERDS, THE MONSTER SQUAD and THE LONE GUNMEN (and many more), and a score by the great Lalo Schifrin, it's weird that EARTH*STAR VOYAGER has been almost completely forgotten by popular culture.

Was it really CANCELED TO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold embark on an important mission of their own, to find out!
