About this Episode

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace is on trial this week. Is this the way or do we have a bad feeling about this?

Alex and Joel defend, comparing this original and lovingly made prequel to the more focus grouped fan service films that came after. Gav and Dave list a multitude of basic filmmaking errors, adding that Lucas may have been wrong in thinking his audience was interested in galactic taxation as a central plot point.

All this with an impression of a Sith lord and a quiz all about Star Wars!
