Notes

Film

  • Minute 94 starts with Dooku briefly summarizing the plot of The Phantom Menace, and ends with Representative Binks proposing something to the senate.
  • Blue Senate Guards.
  • Jar Jar's big moment.

Podcast

  • Dooku telling the truth - how far does it go?
    • Nute Gunray is still clueless. The character is a puppet (metaphorically as well as somewhat literally).
    • Do we (the audience) know that Dooku is Tyranus and in league with Sidious?
    • Is he sincerely trying to get Obi-Wan on his side or is he just trying to overthrow Sidious?
      • We actually want to know more about his hidden motives because the acting is good. It's all about execution.
  • Christopher Lee's Bond villain-esque delivery. Fitting, as he actually was a Bond villain.
  • Obi-Wan doesn't seem to believe Dooku. Is this because of his (misplaced) faith in the council? His faith in his friends is his weakness.
    • Obi-Wan is the most "by the book" Jedi.
  • Dooku is becoming one of our favorite characters. It's a shame he had to die to make room for Anakin.

In the Senate

  • Palpatine's long con. "Jar Jar is the key".
  • The diminished role of Jar Jar following (as a result of?) the fan backlash.
  • The Darth Jar Jar theory and Lucas' intentions.
  • Jar Jar's mode of speech. Referenced: diplodialect.

Other notes

  • Check out the merch store: starwarsminute.com/merch

Meta Minute

  • 21:49 podcast episode length.
  • The speech error that Jar Jar commits in this minute (where he switches the starting consonants of two adjacent words) is known as a spoonerism.
  • Several pieces of merch on the Teepublic store feature Jar Jar, including SWM Prequel Trilogy, JarBreaker, and the left foot of the Star Warrior. Sadly, he has not done a "Jar Jar as a Sith lord" design yet.

Quotes

  • Chrysanthe: Speak your mind. Live your truth. Do it.
