Summary

Obi-Wan falls fifty stories, until a speeder drops down next to him, and he manages to grab onto the back end of the speeder and haul himself toward the cockpit.

Guests

Tom Taylor

Notes

Film

  • A downer of a minute.
  • First time the word "swordsman" is used.

Podcast

  • Pete does some math on Obi-Wan's fall.
    • He falls for 30 full seconds.
    • Assuming Earth-like gravity and atmosphere, Obi-Wan would fall 1138 feet after 10 seconds.
    • He would reach terminal velocity (120 mph) soon after that, and his total fall would be 1.4 km.
  • Is Obi-Wan using the Force in any capacity to slow his descent?
    • This could be an extreme sport—Force-diving.
  • So many things in this minute have to be explained away using the Force.
  • Obi-Wan's hair stays perfectly coiffed. Maybe that's what he was using all his Force power on because of his vanity.
  • Jake Lloyd-esque cut dialog.
  • The writing is trying hard to demonstrate that Anakin and Obi-Wan were friends through banter that is inappropriate for a high-speed chase.
    • Is this what Obi-Wan was thinking back to when he remembers Anakin was a "good friend"?
  • Someone should edit it so that Obi-Wan in Star Wars has a flashback to a montage of these sorts of scenes.
  • Referenced: SWM-Canon#Laser Swords
  • Foreshadowing: Yoda's lightsaber.
  • Mentioned: The Naboo Movie
  • Yoda as the high point, the standard against which all Jedi are compared (for everything)? It's a small universe.
  • Sound design is reminiscent of the podrace.
  • Shoutout to the great Ben Burtt.
  • Anakin's wit
    • He's far too whiny. Maybe someone else could deliver these lines better.
    • Up to now, Obi-Wan has been the witty one.
  • This should be an exciting space car chase, but it isn't.
  • Car chase clichés.
  • Referenced: Ric Olié.
  • Coruscant facts.
    • Asimov's concept of the Ecumenopolis.
    • Coruscant ecology.
    • Is there a giant furnace below them? Or just traffic?
  • Call 8-DAY-GREEDO.
  • Plug for Caddyshack Minute.

Meta Minute

  • 29:28 podcast episode length.
  • Indiana Jones Minute just wrapped up their coverage of Raiders the week before last.
  • Mentioned: Do I have to buy that?.
  • Coruscant is only a tiny bit smaller than the Earth, and assuming the average density of the planet is the same as ours, then it should have 96% Earth's gravity. Of course, Obi-Wan's weight (or more accurately, his mass) would have no impact on the speed at which he falls. That is more down to the force of air resistance.
  • Technically, the building that was known as the Sears Tower in Chicago, is now the Willis Tower, though people still commonly refer to it by its previous name.

Quotes

  • Alex: Uh oh. No one told me there would be math.
  • Tom: Yellow is more of a "wizard" color anyway.
  • Alex: Say it? I can't even pronounce it!
  • Alex: Well for decades sound editors have been trying to break the "g-g-g-g barrier"...
  • Tom: It was his wife's casserole being thrown against a bear.
  • Pete: Can we talk a little bit about Anakin's wit? Alex: <quickly> No. Tom: His what? Alex: Yeah, if you see any, tell me.
