But will it be more hilarious than the Holiday Special?

CraicBaby: But will it be more hilarious than the Holiday Special?


and will it be as trippy as the animated segment of said special?

Sure, you all laugh at the "raping my childhood" thing, but you watch! He'll keep trying until he succeeds!

The Star War holiday Special isn't funny, just painful.

Ok, based on that video?

No. Episode II was funnier.
 
2012-08-24 06:23:47 PM  
Episode II wasn't funny, it was face-palmingly bad.

However, I went to see it on Discount Night, so I didn't feel too ripped off.

Will they explore day-to-day life of the Death Star? Perhaps the canteen?

That chart is always relevent.

Funnier then Episode II?

Well that wont be hard. It was farking awful in every respect.

Perhaps life on Echo Base...

What once seemed like a wide open galaxy seems nothing but recycled adventure.

Please let it star John DiMaggio as Tracy Morgan.

Robot Chicken is funnier. Although the Emperors voice was cool, just like Robot Chicken.
 
2012-08-24 07:03:53 PM  
I'll watch
 
2012-08-24 07:05:41 PM  
Only if it's set in a convenience store on the Death Star... with an otherwise anonymous stormtrooper saying "I'm not supposed to be here today..."

Not every respect. If you made a video of nothing but shots involving Christopher Lee, you'd have a video of Christopher Lee.

That was terrible, and why do they look like Wii characters?

I suppose you are right. Maybe I have been to harsh on episode II. It also had less Jar Jar Binks. That is a good thing too.

I admit it, I rofled at the matte painting joke....

au contraire

I'm with you.

Hopefully there will be a Stormtrooper they call Two-Ton 21

Christopher Lee was known as "Count Dooku" in Ep II. The fail even encompasses him.

I'll give this a shot before judging it. It could be pretty great, or pretty awful.

I will say that I was getting a kick out of Dexter explaining to Leia how much of an idiot Padme was, and that I've always found humor in the idea of Qui-Gon Jin's ghost just hanging around and annoying the hell out of Obi-Wan.
 
2012-08-24 09:35:06 PM  
I thought Episode II was rather sad.

THIS. Before the prequels came out, I was a fan of anything Star Wars related. But even I can't sit through that thing in one sitting. To paraphrase Calculon, that was so bad I think it gave me cancer.

The RiffTrax for the Star Wars Holiday Special is one of my favorites. Especially the riffs on the commercials that weren't edited out from whatever videotape they found it from.
 
2012-08-25 01:05:38 AM  
I enjoyed the Robot Chicken star wars episodes, so this could be pretty funny. They need to change the way they say Star Wars DETOURS though...that was painful.
 
2012-08-25 02:48:01 AM  
That looked absolutely terrible.
 
2012-08-25 12:28:30 PM  
It had its moments, but I was not impressed, and McFarlane using the Quagmire voice (with Stewie's accent) for Emperor Palpatine was distracting.

I think I'll stick to Tripping the Rift and that succulent evil clown, Babbette Bobo.
