Notes

Film

  • We see Jango's silhouette and meet Zam Wesell for the first time.
    • Some of Zam's only dialog.
  • Kouhuns
  • First time we see Coruscant at night.

Podcast

  • Jar Jar is excited to see Anakin, whereas Padmé burns him and leaves.
  • Jar Jar is understated in this scene.
  • Relic of the love triangle—she was happy to see us.
  • It'd be funny if Anakin dressed himself up the way he looked when Padmé last saw him, complete with bowl cut wig.
  • Anakin's accent in this scene.
  • Cut scene: Yoda and Mace discuss how a disturbance in the Force is masking their Force vision.
    • The way the scene is written, it seems to suggest that prognostication is a Dark Side power.
  • Did Yoda ever go dark? That's something we'd like to see.
  • The "reveal" of Jango Fett (Fett silhouette) is only a reveal if you're familiar with Boba Fett.
  • Zam Wesell was not originally intended to be a changeling, and all those effects were done in post-production.
    • Explains why she veils her face and wears a disguise (which you wouldn't need to do if you could transform).
      • Referenced: The Skrull from Fantastic Four.
  • What are the rules for Jedi attire?
    • Anakin's Canadian-style outfit.
  • Hopefully Kenji will be back tomorrow.

Meta Minute

  • 22:14 podcast episode length.
  • Kenji is the first new guest of the season, although he is not the first food-based commentator—Cake Boss Ralph was on last season.
  • This is the second instance of Pete saying something that could be interpreted as "cannibalistic" on the show. The first was during Return of the Jedi Minute.
  • Although Seattlites do occasionally litter, native Washingtonians are known for properly using crosswalks and obeying crossing signals.

Quotes

  • Pete: You know, I mean technically depending on how hungry you are, all commentators are food-based. I'll just put it out there.
  • Kenji: It's frankly not surprising that she doesn't recognize him; the last time she saw him he was Jake Lloyd and now he's Hayden Christensen.
  • Kenji: That's why you should never trust a meteorologist.
  • Pete: (as George Lucas) What if she turned into a lizard when she died?
  • Kenji: Always a Knight, never a Master.
