Anyone catch the Star Wars VH1 special this weekend?  I believe it was called "When Star Wars Ruled the World".  Saw it, taped it, and it wasn't too bad.  Of course, I always enjoy me a Star Wars show, especially the nostalgic kind that look back on the good ole days :P.  They did have interviews with quite a few of the stars (Mark Hamill, Carrie Fischer, Harrison Ford, Billy Dee Williams, Peter Mayhew, Frank Oz, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Warwick Davis, John Williams, etc.)  Kind of nice seeing all this Star Wars attention over the past week too.

I watched it. I was really digging it until they had some snarky comments about the fans. I know I should have a thicker hide, but **** like that gets under my skin sometimes.

All this SW love from the rest of the world will be gone after the holidays, I fear. Which kinda sucks. I'm sure the whole point of the DVD release is to build hype for ROTS.

Anyway watch Lost last night?  I'm hooked.  Definitely one I'll be checking out every week.

Did anyone happen to watch the "Priceless Collections: Boys' Toys" special on the History Channel last night? (thanks Jesse, via the front page)  I happened to watch it, but the Sansweet segment wasn't until almost the very end of the show (if you are catching it on the replay, its in the last half hour).  Kind of a neat little segment, highlighting different areas of his collection.  It really made my collection seem quite piddly in comparison, but then again, I don't have that money to spend either.  It would be cool to visit his "Rancho Obi-Wan" sometime to see all of that though, pretty amazing.

Also, on the television note...for those interested, A Charlie Brown Christmas is airing tonight on ABC.  That has always been my favorite Christmas "special", and I try to watch it every year.  I think it might be replayed at a later date in December as well.

Yeah, I caught that last night as well, Brian!  Unfortunately, I got home too late for the regular showing from 9-11pm, so I had to stay up for the replay from 1-3am.  Of course, as you pointed out already Bri, the Sansweet segment didn't come on until the second to last segment, nearly the very end - about 1 hour and 38 minutes into the show, to be exact.  So I couldn't hit the sack until about 2:45am when it finally ended...   :-\

Though there were definitely some cool shots in there, I was actually kinda disappointed overall with it.  Sansweet spent a little too much time being a goof, and describing certain characters and whatnot, as if folks watching the show had never seen the Star Wars flicks before.  I basically wanted to see a camera slowly scroll through his entire collection house - floor by floor, hall by hall.  Yeah, I know, that's a tad unrealistic, with his collection spanning over 5,000 square feet of living space.

Still fun to see it though.  Maybe not 2:45am fun, but still cool nonetheless.  He's obviously got a mind bogglingly insane collection, and a lot of very rare and unique pieces mixed in there.  Still find it surprising to hear that he actually hits the toy stores like everyone else here does.  I'm not entirely sure I believe that.  Seems like something he'd get some hired help for, or have his archivist do...

Anyway, here's a link to 140 pictures of his collection as well.  Check it out, some cool stuff in there...

I don't know if anyone caught the new Family Guy last night, but it centered on Peter saving the local bartender from a fire, while he (Peter) was blind.  The whole episode Peter wanted to do something "he would be remembered for", and this act did it.  Anyways, at the end of the episode, he gets a medal from the Mayor and the scene mirrors the ending scene from ANH almost exactly.  Chewie accompanies him as he walks down the aisle, and R2/3PO are shown as well.  It also has the same fade and credits in the style of Star Wars.  Kind of neat, anyways.  I believe Yakface might have a link up of the scene, if anyone is interested in seeing it.

I tried watching that episode, but they lost me after Peter started the fistfight with the big chicken and it just drug on and on and on.

Only now, at the end, do I understand the signifigance of the chicken.

I saw one part before I switched channels where Peter and his gang of fools stuck a ceiling fan over Quagmire's wee-wee. I wonder where that joke went.  ;)

Get out of town!

ABC revives 'Kolchak'

Quote
A remake of the shortlived 1970s occult series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" is also among the three new dramas and two comedies ABC said Tuesday it will introduce in the fall.

A remake Of Kolchak, I don't think anyone could replace Darren Mcgavin, well maybe David Duchovny.  ;D

If Smallville gets the ax because of some stupid attempt to compete with another network, like they did with Angel, I'm canceling my cable subscription.
