Sorry about the delay folks, just recovered from my Star Wars hangover. In addition to the movies on Spike, I indulged myself in a little Legacy of the Force. Ah, what a weekend.
What made the weekend even better was to learn that the Trilogy drew more viewers than the Rings trilogy. I like the Rings trilogy but to put it head to head with Star Wars was complete madness I tell ya -- MADNESS! I'll take Jedi over Hobbits any day.
Something else that came of the Prequels being on TV is the fact that my 2 year old, for the first time not being prompted, asked to watch Star Wars. She wanted to know about the characters, the star ships and seemed to really take a shine to R2-D2.
Every Dad is sure that his youngling is the smartest thing in the world and mine proved she is a brilliant little one. Even she turned her nose up at "The Phantom Menace". Don't get me wrong, Kitster is so wizard but a lot of ground was left unexplored while trivial stuff was beaten to dust.
I know I'll have people who question my love for the Saga after voicing a negative opinion of "Menace" but it has it's place. I liked the flick but thought Anakin should have been older. It would have given us a chance to see a little more the Sith and a lot less sugar. But every saga has a beginning I guess.
I have to keep this blog brief but I still encourage every Star Wars fan out there to check out The Force-cast podcast. Also, don't forget to mark your calendars; The Force Unleashed hits the rack on Sept. 16
For those of you that new to my blog, greetings and thanks for stopping by. Leave comments on the blog or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org; I'd love to hear from you.
