So did anyone catch this on Sunday?  I watched it and re-watched it on the DVR again yesterday.  It looks like you can watch the full episode on adult swim.com as well.  Good special, I really enjoyed Fett's recounting of how he ended up in the Sarlacc.

It was funny.  I've only watched it once but I was glad that there was only one repeat in it.

I think it was better than the first one. I'd have a hard time picking my favorite bit. Palpy and his Ithorian hairdresser was pretty damn funny. The Fett/Sarlacc scene was pretty good too. I'm looking forward to picking this up on DVD.

I picked up the DVD the other day and highly recommend it! The main feature is about 45 minutes long, with lots of deleted scenes that might even be funnier than what was included in the full episode! For example, they start out with the ANH opening scrawl written in "text talk" by a teenage girl. Then there are a lot of extra scenes involving the bounty hunters, like Zuckuss (voiced by Conan O'Brien) and 4-LOM acting as their own agent and responding to Palpatine's bounty. Then they have Dengar following the Falcon through the Executor's trash in a toilet shaped spaceship. Hilarious stuff and that doesn't even scratch the surface. There's also a TON of bonus features with some cool stuff, like the premiere screening at Skywalker Ranch and a time lapse showing how they do the animation.

Here's some links to three different trailers for Robot Chicken Star Wars III.  Looks pretty good, and I've really enjoyed the first two as well.

So did anyone else watch last night? I was really disappointed...i don't think I even laughed one time. A whole hour too...that's pretty weak. Seems like they just completely ran out of gas on this one.

The most interesting thing to me from the whole episode was the scene with Anakin and Palps discussing how he had gotten disfigured. It never even occured to me that this was attributable to Mace Windu reflecting the energy back at him during their fight. I always assumed he just got disfigured from simply channeling all that Dark Side energy through his frail and aging body. I need to go back and watch that scene again I guess.

The Boba Fett stuff just seemed silly.

I fell asleep during both airings. The "funniest" part I thought was at the end when the old Anakin spirit was replaced by young Anakin spirit and Obi-Wan says "Special Edition Mother ******" or something like that.

I caught it last night as well, and although I did enjoy parts of it (and like Robot Chicken in general), I guess I didn't find it as "laugh out loud" as the previous episodes either.  Not too bad though.

I thought they did a good job with it.  Now for "It's a Trap" on sale tomorrow.

I thought it stunk compared to the other two... I laughed at the AOTC fireplace scene where Padme strips and washes R2 yet the fireplace is her "non sex talk" room or something.

I like Yarael Poof stuff mainly because it points out how Yoda and Mace just make all the council decisions without any visible input from the others.

Also, Jar Jar Binks' "Yeah, you use'aded me." scene

I thought Yaddle trying to blow Poof off was funny too.

It wasn't any, "What the hell's an 'Aluminum Falcon'" funny, but I thought it was ok.
