Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
When we first decided to start this podcast, one of the topics we wanted to tackle was the Star Wars movies. We are both huge Star Wars geeks and we know it can be tough to talk about Star Wars without people focusing on the negatives of every episode that isn’t part of the original trilogy. So we are going to watch every Star Wars movie that is currently canon and focus on key plot points and what is great about them. Like a SparkNotes of sorts. StarNotes? GeekNotes? We’ll work on it.
What better place to start than Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace? This is easily one of the most hated entries into the Star Wars universe, but when watched with a focus on the positive it is a story of political intrigue, amazing fight choreography, and immaculate conception. That last one might sound like I am making it up, but it will make sense once you listen to this episode.
