I like Episode 1, but this part really was stupid to me. It ruined my whole idea of what a Jedi is. I liked the idea that anyone who is strong in mind and spirit could learn the ways of the force. But no, you gotta have a high midichlorian count! It takes credit away from the Jedi themselves too. No, they're not highly skilled masters of arse kickery, they have high midichlorian counts! Ugh, from now on I'll just pretend this part never happened.
