Star Wars Holiday Special

Recommended Posts

Actually, I've never been able to hate this.

 

It's very silly and very dated, but it does actually hint at what 'normal' people do in the SW galaxy when they're not shooting stormtroopers.

 

I don't find it (or ewoks, or Jar-Jar) anywhere near as damaging to my enjoyment of SW than the total obscenity of the final two prequels.

Happy Life Day Everyone

 

Here's a review of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special that aired when I was a kid back in the late 70's. I would not torture you with posting the original, trust me, this is the best way to watch it.

Warning- profanity.

 

I disagree...THIS is the best way to watch it:

I can't hate on it either. Oh, I'll admit that it's terrible - no denying that. It is, however, entertaining as hell - and that's all I require from my media.

 

Plus its no more goofy than anything else in the Seventies:

 

 

 

See what I mean?

Yeah, we have to take it in context.  It was the disco era, Lucas didn't and couldn't have known how big his franchise was about to get.

 

And Diahann Carroll was pretty, at least.

 

It feels like an easy target to be honest, when there's much worse to get worked up about in the films, let alone the EU.

 

I'm seriously considering doing a homage to this in our game, disco dancers, Jefferson Starship and all.
