Don’t get me wrong. I love this episode of Star Wars. One of the greatest in the saga. But there’s one tiny error that really irks me. You see, Jacques Skywalker, the man in blue, is known in the lore to be a Jedi master. Thus, he should be able to use the force to win this battle. However, he doesn’t, and that annoys me to no end. Did the writers forget he could use the force? Is his power suddenly drained or taken away or something? The world may never know.
This mystery haunts me and the entire Star Wars fan base to this day. A canonical explanation would shake the grounds of the community.
I feel very uncomfortable. Not quite as uncomfortable as hearing your parents making sweet, sweet love in the other room, but somewhere around there. I can only imagine what seeing Mick Jagger and David Bowie on a dimly lit street would be like. Let alone having them corner you in an alley, menacingly snapping, and shuffling their way down until they’re right on top of you. Toothy, British smiles hanging over you, asking if you’re ready for a brand new beat. Spooky; I’m certainly not ready for that nor will I ever be. That’s enough to traumatize any normal person.
But we at the BSBFB aren’t normal people. A true borderline boy would have a response ready before the question was even asked.
