Notes

Film

  • That's no moon; that's a space station
  • First "I have a bad feeling about this." Said by Luke.

Podcast

  • How do they know how big the Death Star is? In space it's hard to judge scale.
    • Ben must have great eyesight.
  • The Death Star should put in a public park system.
  • The Star Wars Drinking Game.
  • Mentioned: Redshirts in Star Trek.
  • Having a good feeling about things for a change.
  • Alec Guinness' great acting in this scene.
    • Especially considering he's looking at nothing (or even worse, a softball on a stick), and not knowing what Star Wars would eventually become.
  • Good actors in bad genre films.
  • Mentioned: The Last Starfighter
  • If they had escaped the before getting caught in the tractor beam, where would they go?
  • Han makes Chewie flip a switch that's right in front of him.
    • Similar to if Han was driving a car and had Chewie flip on his turn signal for him.

  • Pete "That's true—maybe he's a dog."
  • Pete: "Take yourself out of... out of Star Wars for a sec. Just picture—" Alex: "Wait a minute, what? I don't understand"
