    Hey BigBarada! Did you check to see if Rick McCallum's name was in the credits?

    I remember being numb after watching that Holiday Special. I was only 11, but I sat there thinking... "uh, what did I just watch?" and "was THAT supposed to be cool?" I felt kinda like Ralphie in "A Christmas Story" when he discovered the secret Orphan Annie message was a crummy Ovaltine commercial.

    Back to the original intent of this thread... At least SOMEONE was showing a little creativity when trying to explain Luke's new visage!
    OK... I BLOG. YOU READ. at http://jedipartner1967.livejournal.com

    See, the thing about television in the seventies is that most producers assumed that folk had real old TV sets that didn't show things too well through all that bad reception snow on the screen. So make-up ladies and 'gents' went ott on the make-up to compensate for the poor quality tv cameras used back then and the poor quality TV's that most people had. This is why Luke has so much eye make-up and a cake of orange slapped all over his mush. They still do irt today on less than quality TV shows made by el cheapo productions inc. and you can tell when an over zealous make up person has been let loose by the distint trace of orange around the collar of the presenter of the show and the fact that their neck is still white.

    My that was a dull reply! Wonder what's wrong with me lately? Must be this new look and the fact that I wake up to find I'm suddenly a dang Emperor! Sheesh.....

    Thumbs up Holiday Special

    The Holiday Special rocked. I wish they would make the Wookie family into figures. The cartoon with Boba Fett was great. It is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

    Okay I will admit the Holiday Special cartoon was awesome! Even a few of the comedy sketches were actually pretty funny. However, there were plenty of disturbing moments (Itchy's "soft-porn" holoprojector with Diane Carrol) and uncomfortable silences (the Imperial inspectors arrive and just walk around the room in silence for what seemed like ten straight minutes!). It seemed like the director ran out of story with 30 minutes left to fill, so he drug out every moment for as long as possible.

    The one thing I really liked was Lumpy's stuffed Bantha. Why didn't Kenner ever make one of those? That would've been cool!

    Did anyone else noticed that Carrie Fisher looked stoned throughout the entire show? Talk about glazed over!

    I guess you were the only one who thought I was Starfig. The irony of that post is that The_Collector got himself a new identity. I wonder if HE'S Starfig. Where is Starfig?

    Thread killer! Just kidding. If someone wants to send Obi Don a copy of the SWHS, I'll send him a spoon to gouge his own eyes out with afterwards. And trust me, you'll want to.
