    "Screeners report that this character fires a barrage of laser bolts, then pauses while the red spot in his chest lights up. When the protagonist shoots the red spot, the enemy attacks with another barrage, moving around the room in a repeating pattern, until the red spot becomes vunerable again. Rumors state that if the red dot is hit three times he will explode." That's sooooo hilarious. What is that, Metroid or Contra? Maybe both? And the parts where Yoda and Obi-won die. Brilliant.

    does anyone know of a 'lost' starwars program, i think it was from 1978? it was produced by one of the tv networks, shown only once on national tv - around the holidays (thanksgiving i think).

    it was supposedly very, very cheesy. it was like a variety show, with star wars. lucas himself had nothing to do with it, and he hated it so much he had the master destroyed and made the network vow never to show it again.

    despite this, some videos are around (VCRs were in households by then).

    i would love to get my hands on one of those. lucas deserves to be associated with that in his legacy.

    That's the Star Wars holiday special, it had bea arthur and jefferson starship in it. The only thing good about it was that it had first appearence of Boba Fett. I downloaded it of Kazaa but it was really crappy footage, I haven't been able to find a copy of it that is even decent. There is more info about it at http://www.starwarsholidayspecial.com/

    wow...that's amazing. i'm glad people are staying on top of this phenomenon.

    i have heard that carrie fisher said she was 'heavily medicated' during her performance of 'the life day song' which she sang at the end of the show, to the tune of the star wars theme.

    If I were Lucas, I would reveal in Episode 3 that Darth Vader was never Anakin Skywalker, but instead he was originally Jar-Jar Binks. That would be in keeping with the quality of the prequel trilogy, in my opinion. And then I'd roll around in huge piles of money.
