TIckles_Tapeworm: Thanks for your comment and double thanks for the link to the blog about Episode III. You're making my expectations rise which may or may not be a good thing. Then again, that reviewer did say the first two films were "weak" yet the third one was better so he and I are at least coming from the same direction regarding the prequals. If Episode III geniunely is better then it might restore my faith in George Lucas and his team.
And thanks for mentioning you found me via Blogclicker. I was beginning to lose faith in that service. Hope you return.
