If it's an hour long, why don't they call it "An Hour" instead of "60 Minutes"?

I don't even really use the vcr anymore now that we have ReplayTV.]

We have sort of have our own version of 60 minutes: This Hour Has 22 Minutes;D

The days of the VCR are coming to an end with the advance of technology.

Most hour long programs, because of commercials, are only about 42 mins or so long.

Yeah, that was weak alright.  Not much at all in the way of new footage really, aside from some early CG work on Grievous.  Yawn.

Lucas needs to get some serious liposuction surgery on that waddle thing that hangs below his neck.  It's scary looking...   :-\

Well it looks like the Lucas household gets fed plenty.  When you are a billiionaire there should be plenty on the kitchen table. 

There were a few new or expanded shots in that show.  There was some rough CGI of what looked like either Anakin or Kenobi jumping on something jutting out from a lava bed with the lightsaber ignited.  Looks like the duel will feature a lot of hopping on and off of things.  Which might be a bit too much IMO.  We'll see. 

At least we got to see how R2-D2 is going to finish off one of those buzz droids :)

Yeah, Lucas' girls are well fed indeed, Brian!   :o

So what was up with that clip of Obi and Anakin standing face to face, about a foot or two apart, and just spinning their lightsabers around in circles but not attacking eachother?  That's a pretty bizarre scene, unless it serves some kind of purpose or there's some kind of meaning as to why they're not actually fighting...

Anyone have an idea?

Did any see the mouse droid?  8)  

Seems strange why they did that lightsaber ******* almost like Bruce Lee swinging nanchuckas (sp). Maybe they just want to show who's schwartz is better/bigger!  :D

I think Kev is right, they are trying to not fight.  They don't want to do what they are doing

The Lucas family in general needs to mix in a few salads

That was my only potential guess as well, was that that was the very beginning, and they were contemplating mixing it up, but trying to refrain.  Still, kinda silly looking.  Hopefully it translates better into film though...

Anakin has stormed the Jedi Temple, slaughtered those in it, traveled to Mustafar, killed every Seperatist leader, and Force-choked Padme. Why wouldn't he want to fight Obi-Wan?

Someone made a post over at MF (actually a cross-post from CHUD) that made a lot of sense, mentioning that the move was something that experienced swordsmen often do, a sort of "feeling out" of the opponent, especially when they're too close to come to blows. They spin their swords, learning how the opponent will attempt to counter, and find a move to come out of the spin with to attack. Well, something like that. Made sense when I read it, and I'll stick to that until I see the scene in context.  :)
