What a treat! Thanks for doing this commentary guys! Teague, you haven't lost a step at all with the classic DIF/FIYH sync point instructions.
I haven't finished listening to it yet, but I'm really enjoying how you guys approached it from the lens of "What are our opinions on this thing before the internet told us to hate it?". Because my suspicion has long been that people typically thought The Phantom Menace was a fun movie, but had big problems with the next two. Speaking of which, I hope we get another commentary on Attack of the Clones in the future with this same kind of lens (although I don't think any kind of lens will be able to save that one from scrutiny)........Oh, and what did you guys think about The Last Jedi?
And about the Jedi robes discussion, although Obi-Wan's and Owen's robes look kind of similar in the original movie, Obi-Wan's are much closer in appearance to samurai robes (longer cloak that goes down to feet, huge sleeves), and Lucas did take inspiration from those Kurosawa samurai films. At some point though, I think he did want to make the Jedi have outfits similar to Luke's in ROTJ, but may have just decided to revert back to his original inspiration for what the Jedi were.
Oh and I think Ryan has become the new Trey with his interesting personal anecdotes.
