Summary

Anakin's engine floods and coughs – then dies. All the other Podracers except one swerve around him and disappear down the track.

Guests

Asterios Kokkinos

Notes

Film

  • First of two whole weeks (ten full minutes) of podracing
  • Sebulba sabotages Anakin then literally twirls his mustache (à la Snidely Whiplash).
  • Graxol Kelvyyn is the tallest practical costume (11 ft tall) in the film.
  • Death of Mawhonic.

Podcast

Meta Minute

  • 36:37 podcast episode length.
  • "Kelvyyn" sounds like "Kelvin" which J.J. Abrams (who directed Episode VII) tries to work into each of his movies. This is an interesting bit of foreshadowing since Abrams did not work on The Phantom Menace.

Quotes

  • Pete: A lot of the garbage stayed the same.
  • Alex: Behind every great man spouting gibberish is a tired, harried woman.
  • Asterios: Am I having a stroke right now?!
  • Alex: Ask your doctor if Mysturall is right for you.
  • Asterios: (à la Montel Jordan) This is how we do it. This is how we ruin the movie.
  • Alex: People hate when we talk about the Toy Dampner.
