Summary

Brief silence, then a rolling wave of APPLAUSE. JAR JAR beams and bows. PALPATINE rises.

Guests

Chrysanthe Tan

Notes

Film

  • Starts with Jar Jar proposing emergency powers to the Supreme Chancellor, and ends with Yoda and Mace looking on from the viewers gallery (either skeptically or bored, it's hard to tell).

Podcast

  • Our heart goes out to Jar Jar. He's pleased that he did what he thought was the right thing.
  • Reactions from the senators, positive and negative.
    • The Squid Heads (Quarren).
    • Disagreement about the reaction of the Walrus men: is it yea or nay?
    • Aqualish and Quarren both wind up on the Separatist Council.
      • The number of eyes that various Walrusmen have. Mentioned: Yarael Poof.
  • The terminology of "aliens" vs. "humans".
    • Standards of beauty.
  • Alex continues to mispronounce "Zam Wessel".
  • Referenced: Pete's hair.
  • Is the Galactic Senate more like the US senate or like the United Nations?

Meta Minute

  • 24:23 podcast episode length.
  • There are Wookieepedia entries for both "{{{2}}}" and "{{{2}}}", which is a fear or hatred of aliens.
    • Although never said in the dialog of any of the films, the term "alien" is used extensively in the stage directions of many Star Wars scripts.
    • One notable alien in the Empire is Grand Admiral Thrawn, a member of the near-human {{{2}}} species.
  • For more information about Aqualish eyes, see (Which episode?).
  • Wookieepedia does not list an entry for the red mohawk Rodian, but does state that the mohawk is made of hair.
  • There is no Kingdom of Walrus man, but there is a Kingdom of Mann.

Quotes

  • Alex: Who amongst us has not offered unlimited executive power to a...dictator... Pete: —in a pinch.
  • Pete: The Millennium Falcon has been called 'ugly' by a lot of people, I think that's a shame [...] I'm sure other ships find it quite attractive.
  • Chrysanthe: George Lucas, if you're listening to this, which I know you are: you can still change.
  • Pete: I'm doing the 'Walrus man shimmy' over here.
