Notes

Film

Archaeologist David West Reynolds in front of the Hotel Sidi Driss in Matmata, the only "Star Wars" shooting location he knew when he set out in Tunisia. Reynolds said the set decorations like the ceiling mural and the doorway frame are still in place as the crew left them.
  • Starts with Cliegg telling the story of Shmi's abduction, and ends with Cliegg telling Anakin to accept the fact that she is dead.
  • Back in an iconic set.
  • Cliegg is the first Star Wars character amputee without a prosthetic.
  • Cut line:

ANAKIN
I can feel her pain, and I will
find her. I know she's alive

Podcast

  • Trying to recreate the set dressing from Star Wars, they had to rely on a scant few photos and Lucas' and Daniels' spotty memories.
C-3PO drinking a soda
  • "Vicious, mindless monsters". Mentioned: Ska.
  • Cliegg is kind of a jerk for going through the whole story and making the punchline "oh and she's probably dead".
  • Does Luke know what happened to Shmi? He probably got the "Cliegg version" from Uncle Owen.
  • Why Cliegg really didn't go back for Shmi/how he really lost his leg.
  • Maybe Owen bears ill will toward the Skywalker family because of what happened to his father.
  • Does Owen find out that Anakin is Darth Vader? Did Obi-Wan tell him?
  • A potential Obi-Wan prequel.
  • Hayden Christiansen's abilities as an actor.
  • Shameless plug for http://stawarsminute.com/amazon

Quotes

  • Alex: <great Tusken Raider impression>
  • Alex: <pretty bad Ray Romano impression>
  • Alex: Uggh I don't like Sand Day!
  • Alex: (as a crusty-voiced Cliegg) I got moisture to harvest. I can't be wandering around the desert all night—Meredith: (also as Cliegg) looking for my slave wife.
  • Alex: Cliegg dies from his leg injury, and like Skywalker spouses everywhere, a broken heart.
  • Meredith: ...I don't want Qui-Gon. I don't need Qui-Gon.
  • Meredith: Congrats, man. You got that ten seconds right.
