i get what you're saying, gaffer, but I don't necessarily agree. to me, it's all about the quality of the work and the sense in which lucas or whoever or lucas AND whoever are able to capture the spirit of star wars on a weekly basis.

think about it: star wars was originally envisioned as part movie serial. what current entertainment format imitates the serial format more than any other? a weekly TV series.

it'll never happen, mark my words, but if they can capture that serial feel--the adventure and swashbuckle and sexy excitement of the best Star Wars--every week, i don't care who stars in it, or whose story they tell. to me, star wars is as much about how the story is told as it is about the story itself--something lucas never seemed to understand on the prequels.
