I Was A Star Wars Pundit

December 14, 2007

Here’s the amazing true story of how I was recruited to appear in The Sci-Fi Channel’s Episode 1 Unauthorized: The Phantom Menace in 1999.

Back in April 1999, SW-mania was at a fever pitch with TPM’s release only weeks away. I got a phone call on Easter Sunday from a young man who was a producer of an upcoming SW special for Sci-Fi, or what was then called The Sci-Fi Channel. He wanted to know if I was interested in coming up to New York the following Sunday to tape a panel discussion on SW.
