Just a random thought while watching AOTC. When Anakin and Obi-Wan go into the nightclub on Coruscant, there're three big screens with sports events (one of them is podracing). The patrons are watching them, just like people do in real life. A few days later, and both Anakin and Obi-Wan - along with Padme, who they're trying to help here - become the subject of the gruesome crowd entertainment on Geonosis. So I'm thinking: if Dooku set up live broadcast, it's quite possible that same folks in the club watch our heroes prepare to die, just like we're doing. I don't know if it's intentional on Lucas's part, but it seems fairly ironic to me.
