Still Watching the Skies: Episode 31 "THX 1138"
Robert, Nat, and Cody are joined by Paul Hermann of the Marvel Studio News and Blaster Canon podcasts to discuss George Lucas's first feature film THX 1138 and everything that led up to it. THX 1138 was met with little interest by the general public in 1971, but it turns out that we had a lot to say about it with discussions ranging from what kind of government was Lucas trying to describe, to auto-erotic CGI inserts, to preserving films as historical documents, to the common threads that run through George Lucas's work. We discuss Lucas's efforts to spiff up the original version and whether it's successful or not. Also, Nat and Paul whip out George Lucas impersonations.
