Wow, what a terrible movie (if it can be called that). I'm new to the forum, so I'm sure you've already had discussions about this TV special.

If only Luke new the Empire's weakness sooner...Jefferson Starship.

Day to day wookie life is pretty boring as well. Why would anyone want to spend their whole day just yelling and wailing their arms around? Those crazy wookies.

I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

Sorry Zombie. I haven't seen it and I must say that ignorance truly is bliss.

It's like with the Tree of All Knowledge... take the apple to knew everything, but the world won't be the same after doing that...

See SWHS to complete your SW experience, but suffer the pain of what had been done to your favourite Star Wars...
...heck, after seeing the Prequels it won't leave such a big mental scar as it possibly could

Nice parting shot there, RRS.

I still think I'm gonna skip over this opportunity. Not one that I'm gonna actively seek out.

Yeah, can't say I have a mental scar from the prequels. However, I could possibly get one from the OT UE. No guarantees, but trauma I do see.

I'm with Motti on this. Besides, I can always edit the thing to the way it was on my home PC. Hopefully it'll be a MAC by the time the whole thing comes out as a UE.

I'm hoping it will be a Mac for your sake as well. Just my two Lincolns from a fellow Mac addict.

Never saw this special. I know George Lucas hates it he said he would burn every copy if he could. Yes the special probably is bad but its still Star Wars and I would like to see it at least once.

This may be one instance in which giving Lucas complete creative control (read: the ability to destroy it) may not be such a bad thing after all.

Granted you would make it even better company, but I'm not one to say that Dayv, Gundark, and Radic are anything but damn good company.

Mom got an eMac @ work, and it's taken some getting used to, but she's learning to like it. The only setback she had was when the hard drive died, but since that'll happen with just about any computer, hasn't swayed me from seriously considering an iBook.

Han Solo: I'm a nice man.
