A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

Again, sorry for such an immature way to start this quick tip, but holy moly, this is one of the most atrocious things ever stamped on to celluloid.  This special does nothing but waste your time with painfully unfunny "humorous" scenes with Chewbacca's family and other horseshit that's a total embaressment to the Star Wars universe. 

Between seeing the pointless cooking show in Chewbacca's kitchen, Chewy's dad jerking off to virtual reality softcore porn (okay, this didn't really happen, but it might as well have happened since it has strong innuendo), and Princess Leia's horrendous singing, I nearly cried tears of blood over how abysmal this was.

Now I gotta see the RiffTrax version of this.

It's no secret that Lucas hates it in a way which would qualify him for Sith Lord status. …

Among STAR WARS fans, nothing brings forth such a grimace as placing these five words in a single sentence: THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL. Still, it's a sort of legend amongst fans. It's become one of the most sought-after DVDs around, showing up only as bootlegs because George Lucas has famously stated, "If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every bootlegged copy of that program and smash it." Lucas also attempted to purchase every master copy of the program, to make sure it …
