I'll kick your little as.

Surely you don't mean the bronze or copper Roman coin valued at 1/16 of a denarius? ??? I can't imagine that would be satisfying.

But surely that makes it money well spent.  ;)

I'm not sure my parents and grandparents will feel the same, but I appreciate the vote of confidence. :P

I just downloaded this small screen masterpiece to my iPod Classic. Thank God for Google Video. Now I can celebrate Life Day even while on the road!

How's the quality Reid?  I'm tempted to do this even though I've never downloaded video to my iPod.

I have never seen the Holiday special.  I'm really tempted to pick up a bootleg copy just to get a good laugh, or good cry in over it.

Okay, I clicked through google videos last night and started watching this.  I couldn't decide if I was embarassed or what with watching it.  I never made it through the whole thing.  I watched the first 10 minutes and lost it.  I would just fast forward and watch bits and pieces.  Got to the cartoon and decided I would go back and watch it later.  I still don't know what happened in what I was watching and I can't say I'm really sad for not having watched it.

I think making a Star wars fan sit through the entire special is some sort of right of passage....you just have to do it if you're a fan.   ;)

I think there is a Holiday Special on Blu-ray. It's just not offical. It seems to me it would just look even worst on blu-ray.

After 30 plus years I finally sat down and watched this yesterday. It, for what it was supposed to be, is really not he on screen abortion that fan lore has made it out to be. There is a plot to the story, the singing is just what was in vogue at time. I would still watch this over an episode of He Haw any time. 
 If you compare it to the movie, it does not compare, but VS. Other tv from the time it is ok. I would like to see the special edition of this when it comes out. ;D

It's your basic comedy variety show that hasn't been seen since the Muppet Show went off the air. Bob Hope, Andy Williams and Bing Crosby use to have semi-annual shows just like it. Granted, it feels really dated but is actually quite good for the time. Personally, I would rather watch that kind of show than any Reality-tv show.
