    • It's a breath of fresh air to have a scene with minimal dialog between two skilled actors.

Meta Minute

  • 26:34 podcast episode length.
  • Former guest of the show Jim O'Kane answered the call to create an Obi-Wan noir film, complete with voice-over taken from The Firesign theater.
  • A New Zealander listener noticed the guys were having trouble pronouncing the Australian and New Zealander names of some of the actors in this movie, so she called in to 8-DAY-GREEDO to give us the scoop.
  • Temuera Morrison played Azazello in The Island of Dr. Moreau.
  • Jango Fett claimed to have been born on the Mandalorian homeworld of Concord Dawn, which would suggest that he was speaking the Mandalorian language to Boba, however it has been retconned that Jango and Boba are not Mandalorians, and merely wear their armor. The written form of Mando'a does appear on Slave I in AOTC.
    • The novelization states that Jango is speaking an invented code language that only he and Boba understand. Other sources suggest this is Huttese.
