Man alive, this show is terrible. And people who haven’t seen it often seem to think it’s bad in a MST way, but it’s not, it’s just BAD.
It’s Chewie’s father who watches the porn, btw, not Lumpy. And he makes, uh, creepy Wookie noises when he watches. This is the only part that I don’t remember at all from watching it when it originally aired, I’m wondering if my mom yanked me out of the room.
It’s also painful when it uses clips from the movie (say, a long shot of Darth Vader walking) and then switches to video for the dialogue.
Actually, I think the cartoon is the best part.
No, wait, the best part of watching it on bootlegged video is that it includes the commericials that aired with it. Remember the Reggie Bar? Plus lots of spots for the Star Wars toys, of course. There’s one ad that urges us to remember to look for the union label, which is almost haunting because it brought back one of those weird visceral memories of the soaring unemployment at the time, and how perpetually worried my parents were during those years.
One plus for the show is that now several of my hardcore SW geek friends and I exchange “Life Day” cards instead of Christmas cards.
