The year was 2002. It had been 3 years since the Phantom Menace. George Lucas returned with his second Star Wars release: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. But did ol' George learn his lesson and adjust to some of the issues that critics and fans had with the previous film? Is there a clear answer to what this movie is about? Who are the clones and what are they attacking? Griffin and David (having discovered this sequel) are excited to return to their investigation, and in this week's episode, they dive back in looking at the first 25 minutes. Join your hosts as they get reintroduced to Padme, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jar Jar Binks and a now grown up Anakin Skywalker, discuss the assassinations attempts, why Anakin has become such a jerk and what message Lucas has inserted in the film in regards to smoking cigarettes AKA 'Âdeath sticks.' Also, should Griffin's merch spotlight continue as a segment and #PadmeDolezalYesOrNo?
