  • Sebulba sabotages Anakin then literally twirls his mustache (à la Snidely Whiplash).
  • Graxol Kelvyyn is the tallest practical costume (11 ft tall) in the film.
  • Death of Mawhonic.


Meta Minute

  • 36:37 podcast episode length.
  • "Kelvyyn" sounds like "Kelvin" which J.J. Abrams (who directed Episode VII) tries to work into each of his movies. This is an interesting bit of foreshadowing since Abrams did not work on The Phantom Menace.

  • Alex: Behind every great man spouting gibberish is a tired, harried woman.
  • Asterios: Am I having a stroke right now?!
  • Alex: Ask your doctor if Mysturall is right for you.
  • Asterios: (à la Montel Jordan) This is how we do it. This is how we ruin the movie.
  • Alex: People hate when we talk about the Toy Dampner.
