OK, I admit that I was a bit of a glee fan during the first season of the show. The start of the second season was so lousy and joyless that I stopped watching. From what I understand, I got out at the right time 'cos those who have stuck with it say that it bears little resemblance to the show it once was.

Anyhoo... I ran across this article (http://popcrush.com/glee-star-wars-christmas-episode/) on the web yesterday and my head exploded a little and I died a lot on the inside. I don't even think I can muster enough strength to be curious enough to tune in.

Run, children. Run far and cover your eyes and ears.

Man, Lucas is really becoming a... streetwalker in his old age, isn't he?

That's a rather nice way of stating it... yeah.

Obviously Lucas has become intent on reliving the Holiday Special.

On a side note, I was VERY confused by the following quote:


There’s only one guy who can officially be Chewbacca, and he lives in Northern California. They flew him in. We had Chewbacca for the day. It was just great. We were taking pictures with him. He’s been doing it for 12 years.

Woah! I didn't catch that.

Twelve years ago would be 1999... WTF?

The "official" guy might be just the guy who Lucasfilm uses for such appearances (like Deal or No Deal, and now this, apparently). I know they had an official Darth Vader, Kermit Eller, who would go to the mall and do public appearances and that sort of thing, back around the release of ANH, so this is probably similar.

I can't stand Glee for a minute, but my family and girlfriend love it, so I'll probably see the Chewie moments. Or maybe not. I dunno.
