For this final foray into the Star Wars galaxy, the podcast and its critics are crumbling under the concluding chapter of Lucas’ prequel trilogy: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005).
Trying to avoid dealing in absolutes, the four weary warriors work hard to find any subtleties and nuances in this bridging instalment of the saga. Are there any points of view that can explain angsty Anakin’s turn into pedicidal Darth Vader? And what do they make of the pantomimic perfection of Ian McDiarmid’s Dark Lord of the Sith? Meanwhile, Eamon reveals how his study of Star Wars has been a pathway to many responses considered to be…unnatural.
So, as a final step on the journey to the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, listen to their last pass at the prequels. Go on. Do It.
Huge thanks to our guests Eamon (so powerful and so wise) and Alan (who always tries for the high ground) for their reflections and humour!
