I need to get a few confessions off my chest.
1. I really don't like Padme Amidala. Neither Natalie Portman's hotness nor the overall awesomeness of Clone Wars could change this for me. I know she is supposed to be a strong female character who is brave, powerful, and smart. And she may be those things. But first of all, she tolerates and is apparently friends with Jar-Jar. Immediate points lost there. Really? What kind of person would do that willingly? I think they wanted to make a character to match the fierce and spunk of Leia's spirit, but got mixed up somewhere along the way and ended up with a character torn between gooey misguided feelings and trying to be a wise senator. Some poor dialogue is definitely to blame, but for me, it can't be laid entirely at the feet of poor writing. She has potential I think, but you know, she dies.
3. I used to watch and enjoy Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills. I would get up early before HIGH school just so I could watch it. I blamed this on my little sister of course. The tattooed teens were chosen to fight the evil Emperor Gorganus. They are summoned by glowing tattoos on their forearms. Just watch a few seconds of the opening credits, and you will see why I have never told anyone about this.
