Disturbing, yet...disturbing.


February 23rd, 2017


ANAKIN takes off across the desert. PADME watches him go.


Meredith Woerner



  • Starts off with sad Padmé (Sadmé) and ends with Ani riding off in his speeder at suns set.
  • NOT a new Padmé outfit.


  • Padmé's hair. She probably has a droid to do it, and that droid would of course have a sassy accent.
  • Referenced: Bill Clinton.

  • Lengthy discussion of the shot where it's just Anakin and Padmé's shadows on the wall of the igloo.
    • Alex is pro, Pete and Meredith are firmly con.
    • Referenced: C-3POV.
    • Mentioned: Staring at the French horn.
      • Characters in the Prequels are often shallow and underdeveloped. A notable exception is Watto.
        • It's frustrating how underserved Natalie Portman is in these movies. Missed opportunities.
    • Anakin's shadow looks like Darth Vader?
  • Speeder bikes vs. Swoops.
  • What vehicle would you want? The Millennium Falcon? That's too obvious.
    • Meredith weighs in on how to pronounce "AT-AT".
    • What about the cat thing from the arena later?
  • Meredith ranks the movies. Spoiler-free hinting about Rogue One, which had just come out and which Pete and Alex had not yet seen.
  • Why "Duel of the Fates"?
  • Mentioned: Luuke.
  • Leaked plot points resulting in rewriting the movie.
  • Anakin does some quality scowling in this minute. He looks like Grumpy Cat.
    • Showing vs. telling.
  • Meredith wants to do the Ewok adventure films.

Meta Minute

  • 29:18 podcast episode length.
  • This is actually the 15th week of their coverage of AOTC.
  • The repulsorlift vehicle "borrowed" by Anakin is a Zephyr-G swoop bike owned by his step-brother Owen, although the terms "speeder bike" and "swoop bike" are sometimes used interchangeably, and swoops are sometimes considered a subset of speeder bikes.


  • Meredith: Living the now, everybody. Harass me; don't @ me [on Twitter].
  • Meredith: I like her [Padmé's] travel buns.
  • Pete: Keep it going for a second, I have reference material behind me. [...4 minutes of Meredith and Alex vamping...] So, uh my research yielded nothing.
  • Meredith: Remember that horrible cat...that they fight?— Alex: (quickly) C-3PO?
  • Alex: *makes explody noise* That was my mind being blown...
  • Pete: ...the computers are bad, the humans are bad; like, everything's bad about that. Meredith: Well I know when I'm out on picnics I'm constantly faking my own death to get women to fall in love with me.
  • Meredith: (á la Cindel) Star cruiser. Crash. That's all I'm saying.
