Did anyone else watch this documentary on the History Channel? It aired Monday at 9pm and was very interesting. It likens the characters and villains to ones in greek mythology. 1 The conflict between father and son prevalent in SW is similar to the conflict between Zeus and his father, Chronos, and between Chronos and his father. 2 The hero's menagerie of flawed friends to help him on his journey. 2 SW being called a Hero's Journey, a common theme in GM, where the protagonist must overcome obstacles to prove themselves and to grow in strength. (examples: Hercules' tasks and the Skywalkers' training under their respective mentors) 3 The damsel in distress. But it should also be said that Padme and her daughter Leia were resourceful and assertive in the movies at times. 4 The simple-minded fat guy and the intelligent skinny guy as comic foils to each other likened to C3-PO and R2-D2. ...and there were more. I don't care if I have some of the GM facts wrong. You got the gist. I just wish I could watch it again online/download it.
