I just watched the Prequel Trilogy for the first time in several years, in an effort to get myself ready for seeing The Force Awakens tomorrow. My first takeaway was that Episodes II and III aren’t nearly as bad as I remember them. So that’s neat. The next big ticket item that stuck in my head was just how ridiculous the political process works in the Prequels. I’m not alone in this, because, there have been several articles written by qualified individuals on the topic.
