Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

In each episode of Quality Control, a Polygon editor talks to a critic after they review a new game, movie or piece of gear and allows them to add a little bit of extra context and insight. Why did they feel the way they did? What do they wish they had been able to discuss in more depth in their review? Also: Did they play it wrong?

For this special two-part episode, co-host Charlie Hall talks with entertainment editor Susana Polo about her review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. They're joined by Polygon's Dave Tach and Ben Kuchera. We’ll cover everything from the opening crawl to about half-way through the film.

Part two will be up soon.

This isn’t our first time doing a deep dive on the Star Wars movies:
