Over the last week - 10 days, I've watched the entire saga on BR. It's been a long time since I've done that, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The OT is my favorite, but I do have a new appreciation of the prequels especially since I hadn't sat down and watched them in their entirety in some time. Political intrigue is definitely at center stage, and the political events could happen in the everyday real world (and probably do; I'm not that na´ve.) Jar Jar is less of an annoyance. Too much dependence on technology.
