We forgo the Hughes this week to watch The Phantom Menace with someone that doesn't care about Star Wars as dearly as we do, Claire Stanton. Holy crap, turn up the volume, because Richard makes an appearance. We rundown the movie, Claire thinks there's something fishy about that Palpatine guy, and Watto impressions get a lot of play. Opinions on podracing and E.T. divide the gang, but get overshadowed by prequel disappointment. It's not all bad though! The guys give mad respect to George Lucas, and talk about how optimistic they are about the upcoming, J.J. Abrams helmed trilogy. Claire finds fault with Queen Amidala's disguise, and everyone misses Darth Vader. To close, we go around the table and speak about Star Wars, from the heart.
