One thought on “Lattes with Leia Show #6: Debate This (196)”

  1. I’m really enjoying this episode so far. (I heard the first half on my drive to work; I’ll hear the second half on the drive home.

    What bothers me about many of these Star Wars “debates” is that they aren’t really debates–they reflect the viewpoint of certain fans who believe that “because I didn’t enjoy the prequels, nobody should be able to enjoy the prequels”. I believe that many people who bash the prequels don’t do so for the sake of expressing an opinion and opening up a dialogue–they do it for the sake of fitting in with other “true”: Star Wars fans. Thus, gripes about the Special Edtions or the prequels are often expressed on a collective, eather than individual basis, such as “Nobody wanted to see Anakin Skywalker as a 12-year-old”, or “Everybody hated Jar Jar Binks”. These types of viewpoints aren’t intended to spark debate, but to construct social boundaries; passive-aggressively establishing which fans are to be accepted and which fans are to be singled out and ridiculed for “defending” George Lucas.
