Notes

Film

  • Starts with Anakin and Padmé discussing how she became a senator, and ends with Sio Bibble fretting that the senate is powerless to resolve this crisis.
  • Anakin's Jedi ascot.
  • Bibble is back!
  • Graf Zapalo.

Podcast

  • Very detailed Naboo politics exposition, as if a science fiction writer came up with all this elaborate backstory, and wanted you to know how much thought they put into it.
    • Queens are elected, senators are appointed.
  • Anakin is dressed like what a rich person thinks poor people dress like.
    • Funny, given that he went from being a slave to being a Jedi. Maybe Padmé picked the outfit.
    • Great place for a musical montage.
  • Referenced: Michael Dorn (Worf from Star Trek).
  • Mentioned: What's a duck?
  • Gungans are now integrated Naboo society.
  • The seeds of a good movie are here, but fails in the execution.
    • The senate system as flawed and impotent body.
    • "Yesmen" syndrome.
      • Ironically, AOTC feels like a movie that had too much studio interference.
    • TFA had a far less ambitious plot, but succeeded more.
      • More character-based story, like Star Wars.
  • Do you think Disney will ever reboot the Prequels?
  • We're excited for new Star Wars again.
  • Queen Jamillia.
    • Played by Ayesha Dharker.
    • Acted in The Arabian Nights with Captain Panaka.
    • Was in Dr. Who.
  • Riley ranks the movies.
    • She is really a fan of the "Execute Order 66" sequence.
    • KOTOR ranks above all of the Prequels.
  • Thanks to and from Riley for this week. She'd happily come back for Sith.
  • Plug for Star Wars Minute: Weekend Edition.

Meta Minute

  • 34:34 podcast episode length.
  • The exteriors are the Plaza de España in Sevilla, Spain. The lake is Lake Como, in Lombardy, Italy.
  • Queen Jamillia does not appear in Revenge of the Sith. She was succeeded by Queen Neeyutnee, who appears in the Clone Wars, and by Queen Apailana in ROTS.

Quotes

  • Pete: ...analyze, scrutinize, and "FORbidden for Jedis"...
  • Riley: (as Valley girl Padmé to Anakin) Umm, my friends are gonna see me here, and you can't be looking like that.
  • Pete: ¿Dónde está Sio Bibble?
  • Riley: I can't wait until this episode's over so I can be uncuffed from this chair.
  • Pete: We'll definitely <imitating overdub> NOT have you on.
