    Heh, I saw an old rerun of Partridge Family where Hamil played Lauri's boyfriend. The episode where her braces were picking up radio stations. Hamil really got around with all the 70's teenage hotties.

    I just realized, The Blackhole can now be retconned as how humans first came to the galaxy far, far, away!

    She could have easily passed as hispanic if you didn't know her surname.

    Really? I always had trouble believing she was Italian. She looked more Irish to me back then. Of course my perception was clouded by youth and ignorance. Now I'm married to an Italian/Irish/Mexican woman who few people would guess Mexican or Italian as her background.

    Everyone who talks about Mark Hamill sees him as the Jedi Pope, all dignified and wise, but I can see him playing an old and bitter Luke Skywalker, living like a drunk hermit somewhere on Tatooine, looking more and more like Uncle Owen every day.

    The main bad guy hunts him down and forces him back into action, and of course, in a pivotal scene, the villain tells him "I am your SON"!

    Mwahaha. That's what I'd do, anyway.

    "Your wife never told you what happened to your son, did she?"

    "She told me enough! She told me you killed him!"


    "No. _I_ am your son!"


    "That's.. that's not possible! NOOOoooooooo! ...Wait, I just had a the weirdest feeling of Deja vu"

    Good evening. Tonight on 'It's the Mind', we examine the phenomenon of deja vu. That strange feeling we sometimes get that we've lived through something before, that what is happening now has already happened. Tonight on 'It's the Mind' we examine the phenomenon of deja vu, that strange feeling...

    Nah, but seriously, it makes dramatic sense. You just have to Anton Chekhov it up.

    Disney wants to sell toys.

    This will be made for kids.

    Who will buy star wars happy meals to collect all the toys.

    I watch hot in Cleveland, I like hot in Cleveland.

    far too much make up, + real tan, + spray tan = the illusion of Greek to Mexican, or Latin or an African American grandparent.

    I will also be buying the toys. But not the happy meals.

    2.00 for the toy without the happy meal! When AOTC came out they said they would not be releasing any promotional items with fast food. But then they did release cups with figures on top of them for Hungry Jacks (which I presume was Burger King in the US) and I still have all of them. I do hope so very much that there is something similar with Episode VII. But they better not put them in cereal boxes. I remember when we had (quite excellent) Wallace and Gromit figures in Sanitarium corn flakes and every single box in every single supermarket was ripped open.

    I don't eat happy meals and I don't buy toys, but I like stories about space monsters, laser swords and things that go pew.

    I actually did wonder if the female lead in the new trilogy will be either oblivious to pain and genocide or actually turned on by it. It seems to be a Star Wars tradition as much as the Droids.

    That would actually be more in keeping with current fashion. And I do like the symmetry of having his kid become the new Darth Vader.

    But don't you want those things on your dashboard? And your computer and key chain and dresser?

    I don't know if you're joking about the "I am your son!" part, since I think Luke would know if his own son was the bad guy. But I do think that would be an interesting way to take the story. First Luke saves his father, and now he has to save his son. It could work.

    It only sounds like I'm joking because I find the whole thing funny, but from my point of view, it's one of the only ways to make the whole thing make sense dramatically and to tie the three trilogies together:

    Prequels: Anakin rises and falls
    Classic: Luke, Anakin's son, redeems his father
    Sequels: Luke saves his son.

    I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.
