The trilogy that chronologically followed the PT (I'm talking about OT, even though it came first of course) only referenced the PT by mentioning that vader used to be a jedi.  There's no mention at all of qui gonn or mace or dooku or battle droids or even clones.  And that's what, twenty years after?  Why would something fifty years after talk about these things?

"Princess Leia: General Kenobi. Years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars."

"Luke: No, my father didn't fight in the Clone Wars. He was a navigator on a spice freighter. 

Obi-Wan: That's what your uncle told you. He didn't hold with your father's ideals; he felt he should've stayed here and not gotten involved. 

Luke: You fought in the Clone Wars? 

Obi-Wan: Yes. I was once a Jedi knight, the same as your father."

By the way just becuase they optioned the rights startrooper3000 that does notnecessarily mean it will get made.
Sorry that this is such an old thread resurrected, but I happened across it today and I couldn't help but chuckle!  Season 2 was ordered a little while ago : )  So I guess in the end it did get made! And no, I don't really know how to use the quote feature, so this looks funny. --StarTrooper3000

Hmmm...I gave the whole situation some thought after I posted the reply to the moderator and I realized I probably shouldn't have said anything. I don't know what the guy said on here.... Sorry guys. But I do think it is the wrong way for a moderator to act nonetheless. Oh well. It seems like no one liked him so it apparently wasn't that much of a loss.

Fact: There are no credible rumors AT ALL about casting.
Fact: HBO generally prefers unknowns for their series.

Really, specualtion about casting is waaaaaaaay too early. HBO has yet to give the show a green light even, they only have the rights. It will be quite a while before any plans for the actual show are set in stone at all.

Jedisage, I'm totally with you, ASOIAF is not possible without the ambiguity of the character's tendencies toward good and evil. It is one of the reasons Martin's epic is a page turner. Unlike something like Harry Potter (I am not a fan of that series AT ALL) where you know what will be happening with some givens like "harry will live" Martin keeps you totally guessing because his story is based on how people actually interact and quarrel. Very few characters are "safe" in his world (ahem to the Starks...lol) whereas other storys put in a core group of main characters early on and you can trust they will be there throughout the story. I don't know about everyone else, but that idea has tired me out because it just puts a drastic sense of fiction in stories. I know fantasy isn't supposed to be realistic all the time, but come on, you know? You lose some of the thrill if you know Mr. Potter isn't actually in danger or that the emperor won't lose to Mace Windu no matter what it looks like should happen. The ambiguity is a great thing in ASOIAF and it won't change through the rest of the series.

WHAT?! Why in the world are you saying yay?? This person left because they were feeling insulted! Probably from people like you! WTH. And you're a forum moderator? Or is that some name you made up?

Hey, I don't sign into OT.com much anymore, but I wanted to share this with the group.

There's probably a 50/50 split between people on here who've heard of ASoIaF. It is a fantasy book series currently in progress. The books are on par with novels like LotR and Wheel of Time. The basic plot line involves a continent, Westeros, which is suffering a civil war after the death of its King. It involves war, intrigue, incest, murder, faith (not christianity...), oaths, and lies. Except for the occasional sprikle of magic from the gods this could be an almost entirely historical account of some distant land in the middle ages.

So, for those of you who HAVE read them: I have amazing news. George R. R. Martin, the author, has said numerous times that these books could not be sufficiently made into movies (to put it in perspective, the third book in the series - A Storm of Swords - is as large as the LotR trilogy...) because no film studio would ever commit to 18 movies to capture the whole story. BUT, like I said, an amazing thing happened. HBO, the creator of WONDERFUL miniseries, such as Deadwood, The Sopranos, and ROME, has bought an option on the tv and film rights to ASoIaF!!!! Variety.com was the first to announce the news. Then, Martin confirmed it. Enjoy the articles

Moving on, if for whatever reason you have been deprived of reading this epic series...I'm sorry, you don't realize what you are missing! I think I might like it better than Star Wars, and SW is pretty much an awesome story (bad acting aside!) If I can find one, I will post a sample on here so you can get a taste and hopefully LOVE it!

Hey Shimraa!! I'm not really back, just checking in. I heard about the DVD "bonus material" and I wanted to see what the site had to say about it. Things are pretty good on my end; I'm in college now -- UNH -- and I turned 18 this week. How are things w/ you? And yeah, this is completely off topic from the rankings, but I'm not caring right now :-P

I have a question though from like the first page of this thread, and if you guys want to continue talking about sports that's fine but here's my question anyway:

Why do so many people here hate gays? Or homosexuals if anyone is easily offended.


Lol, a new guy is mentioning the fact that we're getting off topic; we weren't but it's cool of you to keep everything clean man. We don't really want to get off topic too much, thanks.

Yeah. The days of the massive arguments have ended I think. They were oh-so-good though. I remember the other members posting things like "man, I'm gonna go get some popcorn, this is getting good" and stuff like that

I HOPE me o. GETS BENCHED BEFORE THE SEASON STARTS. PEOPLE HERE IN DALLAS AREN'T HAPPY ABOUT HIM BEING ON OUR TEAM.


No? I wonder what the deal to bring him to Dallas was. I don't think he'd be liked anywhere, but there must have been an incentive.
