They suck. And I'm in for anything that can make them better. I've checked out Magnolia's edits and I've read/had endless conversations about what was wrong with the prequels and what was good/bad and what can stay and what must go. The problem with this, as I see it, is that they're still based on the crap prequels. (But thank you all for your efforts. Nothing against you Magnolia, just that whole sow's ear->silk and turnip->blood problem.)
So, what I'm looking for is everyone's ideas of what the prequels should have been totally disregarding what Lucas did in his Eps 1-3. I'm sure plenty of people have already written in detail their concept of the PT, so links to pre-existing material is fine.
I guess random musing on the topic is okay, but I'm really looking for complete ideas.
So, lay 'em on me.
IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!
