Day 26, Least Favourite scene from the prequel trilogy: The swamp scene in Episode I
I myself like to call this scene: Qui gon Jinn and Bully wan Kenobi vs Nerd Nerd Binks (yeah I’m bloody great with names). Basically it looks to me like Obi and Qui are ganging up on Jar Jar, bullying him in to helping them out which is hardly the Jedi way! I mean they could just as easily have explained their situation to him but instead they form a bully circle around him and scare him in to helping them out.
Here’s what I would have said: Mr. Binks, clearly you’re a reasonable Gungan so I’m sure that with your cooperation the three of us can be out of this situation as soon as possible. All we need from you is directions to Gunga City and we’ll be out of your hair before the week is out and with any luck the invasion of Naboo will be over before you know it.
To which Jar Jar would have agreed and we’d be friends! But what they did was go: HELP US BITCH OR WE’S GONNA DIE!!
