More on Sith

As a quick addendum to last night’s Star Wars impression, I just want to add another thing that I really didn’t like – midi-fucking-chlorians. I’ll admit that it could have been worse, as when Palpatine started talking about Sith being able to manipulate midichlorians to create life I was half-expecting another “I am your father” moment, but wouldn’t it have been better just to leave them out?

Maybe it was intended as a sly joke to the knowing fans like when you find out in Attack of the Clones that Jar Jar Binks, probably the most hated character in the whole thing, is responsible for the whole Empire, as it was partly Palpatine’s ruminations on midichlorians that started Anakin down his slipperly slope, but I still think that we would still have been better off without it.
