"Revenge of the bored...."

Just got back from my latest donation to Lucas' estate.
My wife and I LOVE Star Wars, but this is the first time she nudged me (without the "wink, wink") and said, "Are you as bored as I am?" And I told her that I was indeed, and had taken to timing the jump cuts during the Droid factory scene. (Longest shot? The Senator in the crucible, trying to climb out -- 6 seconds.)
The jump cut -- modern entertainment's contribution to ADD/ADHD....
Ooops, getting a nudge -- and -- WITH the wink, wink...!
