Between Season 2 and 3, the creators of LOST made an alternate reality game called “The Lost Experience”, which expanded the backstory of the DHARMA Initiative. It was designed to satiate the most die hard of fans who wanted more answers than the show could provide, and involved so many pieces it’s remarkable it even happened at all. Ben and Kevin discuss, if they feel it was a success, and what the ARG was and what the most important takeaways from it were.

WARNING: Here be spoilers. Your first and only warning.

Once The Last Jedi came and went, audiences officially began the journey from the “comfort” of the Skywalker Saga to the great unknown with the future of Star Wars. There is only one more film to go in the (foolishly presumed) final Skywalker trilogy, and soon enough there will be more Star Wars films that cover every little corner of the galaxy that is far, far away. As such, Solo provides some additional insight into the thought process guiding this venture. But also, it leaves many unanswered questions which I, an expert – obviously, will attempt to answer.

1. What were they thinking? Continue reading 5 Questions After Watching Solo: A Star Wars Story
