Notes

Film

  • Starts with Lando giving orders to various pilots, and ends with Darth Vader looking for Luke in the Emperor's crawlspace.
  • Continuity error: bodies appear and disappear.
  • Maj. Hewex

Podcast

  • Meredith specifically asked for Endor minutes.
  • Pilot confusion.
  • The (at that point) unnamed military-centric Gareth Edwards Star Wars anthology film.
  • The medical frigate and the Imperial Star Destroyers slugging it out like old-timey ships.
  • TIE interceptors.
    • 20% of TIE fighter fleet was interceptors by this point.

    • Disagreement over the number of guns
  • Lando can't mention Han without bringing up that they're old buddies.

    • Star Wars repeating itself over and over.
  • A bunch of Imperial officers are introduced in this bunker.
  • Harrison Ford's acting in this scene.
  • What the Rebels do with their prisoners.
  • Meredith's stance on the Ewok movies and Ewoks in general.
    • The movies are extremely messed up, but they were made for kids.
    • The possibility of covering the Ewok movies the same way that they did the Holiday Special is raised.
  • What happened to Leia after she was shot.
  • Support the show.
    • Mentioned: M*A*S*H.

Meta Minute

  • 34:28 podcast episode length.
  • Cold open: Cute hotline call from John and Vivian in NM.
  • What system of measurement uses ".06"?
  • Sorry Pete, two members of the Skywalker bloodline appear in Rogue One.
  • TIE Interceptors were discussed in more detail back in Minute 66.
  • Unfortunately the timing didn't work out, and when the guys covered Caravan of Courage they were not able to get Meredith as a guest.

Quotes

  • Alex: Are you questioning my knowledge of medical frigates?!
  • Pete: (radio serial voice) A battle at the edge of space!
  • Pete: I love Imperial officers; the more you throw at me the better I feel.
