        Oh... that was unfortunate. There were a few laughs, but a lot of misfires and the art style is grotesque, not humor-inducing.

        Holy snot, that may be the least funny attempt at comedy since Good Burger.

        Mabs' Cruisemissile Trooper story is funnier than this by a long shot. Of course, so's stubbing your toe and shattering the bones in it and having it swell up to twice the size of the rest of your foot.

        I was at the second panel, where George Lucas made a surprise appearance (though I had just seen his more-surprising surprise appearance at The Clone Wars panel, so it was, uh, less of a surprise ). They showed some more actual clips here and elsewhere through the Celebration, many (if not all) of which have made their way online since then. Anyway, I like some of the character-based stuff, which is very much like the Robot Chicken specials (duh); Han returning to the Falcon to an annoyed Chewie and cold dinner was pretty funny. But yeah, a reasonable amount of it didn't exactly leave me with much confidence (I really don't need stormtroopers singing Katy Perry parodies in my life). I don't know how this could be a weekly series, but they didn't give any information on where or when or how this would show up. There are writers on it who worked on the Family Guy specials, the LEGO specials, and several other shows, so it seems like it could be several different styles of humor not blending together very well. We'll see.

        I know from experience that sometimes the convention exclusive footage is better than the actual trailer (hello, TMNT and Superman Returns!), so I'm not willing to completely pan it yet. But this trailer stinks.

        And Robot Chicken I find to be hit and miss. The funny stuff is hilarious, but about 9-12 minutes of every 15-minute episode isn't funny.

        Ouch, that's not good because those episodes are only 11 minutes long, the slot is 15 minutes but 4 of them go to commercials.

        Okay, then about seven minutes are unfunny. I never actually timed them.

        It's hard to gauge because the bits are usually so short that 1 bad bit doesn't matter, but when there's a long bit that's flopping or several in a row, then it feels like forever.

      I'm not sure if it occurred to me before, but last night I realized how similar the the phrase is to Brennan's "I don't know what that means."

      Just as the credits were to go, I wondered if there'd be a voice-over that said "Oh, THAT'S what that means!"

      So his name isn't really Han Solo...

      I can see the tagline now... twice the smuggler, twice the scoundrel, twice the pilot... meet... Han Duo!

      His name is Hans Olo. They spelled it wrong on his driver's license and he didn't think it was worth fussing over.

      Maybe he's related to Boba Fett! I'm sure someone would think that was neat..

      Or maybe we'll find out that Woody Harrelson was the first

      He's an Organa, so his name should be Han Organa Solo Organa; and he's Leia's step-brother husband. It's meant to explain Kylo's messed-up attitude?
