Star Wars Holiday Special
#1
Does anyone know where I can watch the Holiday Special from 1978?

Also is it as bad as people say it is?

The Holiday Special? You actually want to see it? Blink

Ok, but don't say we didn't warn you:

I managed to get through it once... most painful 2 hours of my life. The most disturbing part by far however is Itchy's "gift".

The Holiday Special should become a pilgrimage for all Star Wars fan able to stand it. Wink

It's the funniest and most painful two hours of your life.

You know, I've watched the special and I thought it was kinda good...
In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant. Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.

This was so bad it came full circle and became hysterical... I loved the bit with Han at the end where he faked out the stormtrooper to get him to fall out of the treehouse... classically bad stuff.

Eek

You should go wait by the door for guys in white to show up. Don't resist them; they'll take you to a fun house. Tongue

I have found that the Holiday Special is BAD, really bad! Worse than if they made a movie about Jar-Jar and Ahsoka talking about what they do in their spare time!

The Holiday special must be the worst "entertainment" ever put on film. It's a must-MISS. Believe me, you'd rather watch paint dry. I could only watch about 10 minutes of it before fast-forwarding to the end. And it's like good and evil, evil and good. It's so bad that it makes any complaints about the prequels seem small.

Please tell me your enjoyment was in part due to alcohol?

I've never watched or had any desire to see "The Star Wars Holiday Special". Maybe I should one of these days...

You should. Everybody should watch it at least once. If nothing, it'll give you a new appreciation for the prequels.
