The shaak bucks, and Anakin falls off. Padmé laughs even harder. Anakin lies still.


Ricky Carmona



  • Starts with Anakin outlining his authoritarian form of government, and ends with him falling off a cow (shaak).
  • Cut Padmé dialog: You're so bad.


  • Does Anakin really mean what he says about supporting a fascist dictatorship, or is he just needling Padmé? Both?
  • Good Natalie Portman acting in this scene. Her best acting is when she is smiling, because you can actually tell what the character is thinking.
    • Referenced: Aaron Burr, as depicted in "Hamilton".
  • Does Padmé really go for the bad boys? The cut dialog suggests she likes him because he's bad.
  • Carrie Fisher was one of the people working behind the scenes to tighten up the script for this movie.
  • Ways the love story could be improved.
    • Comparisons with the Han-Leia romance.
  • George wanting to try new things as an artist.
  • The constantly evolving state of CGI.
    • This is the same year that The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers came out.
    • Curmugeonly Pete remembers thinking Anakin riding the shaak looked fake at the time.

Meta Minute

  • 27:39 podcast episode length.


  • Pete: Analyze, scrutinize, and... bad CGIze...
  • Pete: (as Hayden Christiansen) Can we do a scene where I juggle? Girls like that, right?
  • Alex: <In response to Anakin on the shaak-back) It's the fakest looking fakeness that was ever faked.
