Notes

Film

  • Starts with Darth Vader continuing to choke a guy and ends with the droids getting in to the escape pod.
  • There is a crunching sound as Darth Vader chokes the guy with his robot hand.
  • C-3PO calls R2-D2 "an overweight glob of grease".

Podcast

  • Darth Vader as a complete robot or super Stormtrooper.
  • Captain Antilles, who he is in the movie, and the speculative familial relationship to Wedge Antilles.
  • Everyone is somehow connected to everyone else in Star Wars.
  • R2-D2's body issues.
  • R2-D2 is all business.
  • R2-D2 as a Swiss Army knife.
  • Droid capabilities to open doors, hot wire escape pods etc.
  • The Stormtroopers are literally looking everywhere for the plans - i.e. behind doors, in the corners etc.
  • What room is this scene taking place in on the blockade runner?
  • The 'stun' laser special effect in the movie.
  • The only use of 'stun' in a Star Wars movie.
  • Princess Leia is very bad at hiding, or maybe she wanted to get caught to buy the droids some time.
  • Was a stunt-double used for Leia's fall after being stunned?

Meta Minute

  • 12:01 podcast episode length.
  • The line "There's one, set for stun" is another line that is sampled in the troop transport toy.
  • Tony Consiglio recalls children not knowing Darth Vader's name and referring to him as "the black guy".
  • C-3PO as "golden guy" (not "goldenrod" at this stage).

Quotes

  • Tony: And I am Tony Consiglio from nowhere.
  • Pete: Here we have another human and he dies too.
  • Alex: There's one: Set for bun.
  • Alex: We've all had our hardships.
