"The Angst Of Anakin Skywalker" is episode 15 and the third part of the Attack of the Podcast miniseries, about the film Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. Posted 6 Jul 2015.
Well, he’s a teenager now: not in control of his emotions, hormone-fueled, and in desperate need of discipline/a good spanking! So what does the Jedi Council do? They put young Anakin in charge of protecting Padmé, of course!
You mean, an important Galactic Senator with multiple attempts on her life being guarded by a Padawan that is recognized as being a bit of a wild card? Sure what could go wrong?
In this episode, your co-hosts Griffin and David metaphorically lock themselves in their bedrooms, blare their stereos and write bad poetry about how no one understands their pain, 'cause this week is a discussion of Anakin’s character arc. Including: the casting and performance of Hayden Christensen, his discovery that his mother was kidnapped by Tuscan Raiders, and mass murder.
