The guys head back to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away for the second installment in the original Star Wars trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back. The guys compare the film not only to the rest of the Star Wars series, but also the rest of director Irvin Kershner's catalogue, which includes such classics as RoboCop 2 and Never Say Never Again. They talk about how Empire stands alone and bridges the series together, as well as how the actors both grow and, well, don't from A New Hope to Episode V. The Bit Players also imagine what it might have been like had iconic method actor Daniel Day-Lewis prepared for a role in the film.
