YUP! And guess what he’s a Sith lord too!
In this episode, Griffin and David examine the new Emperor’s rise to power, including: the origins of Darth Sidious, the “ancient” Darth Plagueis myth and their possible connection to Anakin’s birth, the death of Mace Windu, space opera, as well as the George Bush connection.

Can Ben pitch a $200mil movie idea? If Ben had made all the edits requested, would this episode be 21 seconds long? What does that space opera remind us of, hmmm? And who are these damn Wookiees anyway?
Milestones and Ephemera
- Griffin's opening: scary Emperor voice
- Mace Windu: Boring, serious, Popelike, stern
- Chewbacca: The most vanilla of the Wookies, a "hair guy"
- Mortdecai photo reactions: Griffin hysterical, Ben dismissive
