Summary

The spacecraft flies over the endless cityscape of Coruscant, the capital of the galaxy.

Guests

Chris Radtke

Notes

Film

  • Starts with Padmé telling Anakin that she doesn't need his Japor snippet.
Ends with them arriving at Coruscant.
  • This scene is a weird mix of maternal and romantic.
  • Ric Olié's big line: "Coruscant: the entire planet is one big city".
  • When we first see Senator Palpatine, he's in the shadows.

Podcast

  • Padmé should be doing all of her lines with a Nemoidian accent.
  • Chris was excited to have someone From Long Island (Natalie Portman) cast as the Queen, but was disappointed in her performance.
  • It's unrealistic that Padmé (a 14-year-old queen) would be at all interested in Anakin (a 9-year-old) no matter how cool he was.
  • Anakin almost never changes his clothes; he must stink.
  • The Ric Olié letdown
    • Chris got the Ric Olié action figure before the movie came out.
    • There was a lot of hype about the character and he turned out to be a big letdown.
    • They were hoping Ric Olié would become the Boba Fett of this movie.
    • Ric Olié's Captain Obvious routine.
      • Reminiscent of when the Simpsons visit New York.
  • Coruscant facts.
    • Pronunciation?
    • Birthplace of humanity in the Star Wars universe.
    • Demographics.
  • Comes from Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire.
  • Ring theory? Minutes 80 and 83 of Empire and Jedi, respectively feature landing ships.
    • did George Lucas make the special Editions so that the timing would line up better?
  • Before the Prequels, Chris loved George Lucas and supported him unconditionally.
  • Will Chris come back tomorrow? Hopefully.

Meta Minute

  • 26:47 podcast episode length.
  • 8-DAY-GREEDO call from Bert in Connecticut. His sons were reading Good Night Darth Vader, and yelled Sebulba! when they got to that part.
  • Chris was adamant that the hosts were making a big mistake by covering The Prequels, so it's surprising that he agreed to come on this season.
    • This minute in particular is the one that he signed on for.
    • The "Phantom Menaissance" is on hold this week.
  • Valorum's shuttle was a Eddicus-class planetary shuttle.

Quotes

  • Chris: <grumbling, and under his breath> ...and I'm Chris Radtke...
  • Pete: (as Padmé To Anakin) You're like a carnival prize.
  • Chris: <Sound of Chris throwing himself off the landing platform>.
