I realise that this must be really old news for the US forummers (as you get everything months before us unfortunate Brits), but I've just seen the Ep1 DVD and I am IMPRESSED.
If there is ever a case for buying a DVD then Ep1 is it.
I always thought that Coruscant taxis were a bit naff - but the extra scenes with them in are excellent - I didn't realise that they were so big.
Also, the close up scenes of the pods are brilliant - it really catches the pre-race tension.
The scene where one of Gasganos race is selling "frogs" in the stands must surely be a homage to "The Life Of Brian" - ocelots ears, anyone?
