Star Wars TV series….zuh?


So Lucas just can’t put the crack pipe away. He’s making a Star Wars tv series, and it’s going to be set in the 20 years of Luke Skywalker’s life before he heads off to blow up the Death Star.

Eh? Let me get this straight. Dodging around the fact that a Star Wars tv series is kind of pointless to begin with, why focus on something so fundamentally boring? Is the whole show going to be set on Tatooine? And what the hell does Luke do before he hits the big time as a Rebel champion? Get into fist fights with Jawas? You’d think with all the potential backstory the series could draw on (formative years of the Empire, buildup towards the Rebellion, politics on Coruscant, Empire hunting down various species that cheese them off like Wookies, etc..and that’s just off the top of my head), they could come up with something better. But apparently, this is not the case. Meh.
