Exactly like Cheers, but set in the Mos Eisley pub.

Porkins will take the place of Norm. Television gold, guaranteed.

beerdini: Had an idea for a sort of young Han Solo TV series, around the time after the prequel trilogy ended and Lucas had a major announcement I actually convinced a co-worker that it was going to happen.

Would follow a young Han Solo as he meets people like Chewbacca and Lando, gets the Millennium Falcon, gets into a career as a smuggler, encounters bounty hunters, and basically "Captain Kirk's" his way across the SW universe. Han always seemed to be a guy who knew someone that could help him out from the smuggler days and his cocky attitude and smugness was something that was sorely missing from the prequel trilogy... thats what I used as the point to convince the co-worker that there would be a series about him.

Isn't that basically Firefly?

Darth_Lukecash: gaspode: HotWingAgenda: fusillade762: HotWingAgenda: There has already been a Star Wars TV show. It was all CG, and was better than the movies.

I was better than the prequels, that's for sure. Though I don't remember it being CGI...

[media.sfx.co.uk image 610x464]

Oh wow, they made a cartoon version too?
[www.thickets.net image 350x542]

first couple of series were 2d animation and entirely brilliant.. then they made the 3d ones which were very good, and got consistently better as it went.

The first animated season was crap. It had out of character moments like Padme using C3P0 as bait or Mace Windu taking on an army by himself. It was mostly: ooh look at these cool action scenes i animated! The second Animated season was great.. And the CGI version has been excellent.

The live action one was supposed to be about the Underworld/bounty hunters...

But those wanting HBO style... That's not Star Wars

Exactly. Empire Strikes Back on steroids? Like BSG and Deadwood? Fark that. Star Wars is all about the farking Mary Sues and Pew! Pew! Pew! Hell Firefly was closer to farking Star Wars then either BSG or Deadwood.

Meh, set it between Episode III and IV give us a crew, with an ex-trooper Clone captain, his bad assed no-nonsense Rhodian side kick, a lovable goof ball of a pilot, their ex-Republic Military Doctor, a Wookie mechanic, a bounty hunter, an old ex-Jedi and his half crazy apprentice in a lovable scruffy stock light freighter trying to make their way throughout the outer rim of the galaxy and avoid Imperial entanglements.

Yeah, this is going to suck. They'll make the cancellation pile in less than twelve parsecs.

They've talked about that for years and years. My friend gets all excited about it every time news of a Star Wars TV show does the rounds, but here's the thing... 1) it hasn't come out the last 10 times it was mentioned and 2) do you really want to watch a Star Wars TV show? Really?

/One Star Wars Tree Hill
//probably set in the PT universe
///no thanks
