i think blu ray is released later this month. i've been deep into the new clone wars cartoon on netflix (don't know if i've already mentioned this) which is actually quite comfy.
watched the prequel series again to take advantage of this star wars phase. i enjoyed them a lot more than usual this time around by adopting the perception that Sheev is the main character and that all others are his play things, which is the correct way tbh.

Sheev was executed really well in those films.  They are beneath him.

i haven't read any EU stuff with palpatine in it but i read his wookiepedia the other day. his powers of deception and planning could only exist in a universe like star wars with which anything too ridiculous can be justified by "lol he is strong in the force".
 great character though. watch the new clone wars series for more great sheev false flags and 4d chess

I mean that's true of most force users in the series.  He was just one of the best.  "It's treason, then" makes me wet my pants every time.

I have been meaning to re-watch old Clone Wars.  Might give the new one a chance whenever I do.  I only ever watch shows when I'm sick though and my immune system is the Berlin Wall so it might be a while.

i mean shooting lightning out of one's hands is one thing but single-handedly overthrowing the republic from the inside and destroying the jedi in one swoop is truly magnificent and inspiring

The magnificent part of it is that aside from using the force to block the perceptions of the Jedi around him, Palpatine's manipulation of both governments was fairly mundane.  The way he put himself at the top of both was brilliant.  He wins no matter what happens and so is free to take his time and wait for the perfect opportunities.
