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.
  • The terminology of "aliens" vs "humans".
    • Standards of beauty.

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.

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.
