My gf has not seen the first half of season 3, but it starts on marathon at noon tomorrow(central time), and we're going to watch through it. It was so good and I cannot wait for this show to start up again. So good.

I know best show on tv imo. I was late to the party and was bored one day during the lock out and started watching it on Netflix. I couldn't stop watching it! Plus it was great no commercials and I could start a new episode when one ended, it was like a movie! Then I caught up. But Hell yeah it is back!

And Michael Caine was unable to accept his Oscar for this POS! It's amazing how every Jaws sequel is 10x worse than the last movie yet they don't ruin the appeal of the original.

Nerd alert! Two stand alone films are planned for the Star Wars universe: a young Han Solo based one (before A New Hope) and a Boba Fett one set between A New Hope and Empire strikes back.

John Noble is also apparently going to be the villain in Episode VII

I like the concept of a Han Solo back story. But it will be very difficult to try and mimic Harrison Ford's character. Kind of like the new Star Trek movie kind of imitated but didn't really capture Shatner's charm.

Watched the Grammys last night. I look way too similar to Marcus Mumford, especially now that he's put on some weight.

The Han Solo film better not contradict anything in the Han Solo trilogy. It basically *IS* Han Solo's backstory. Very in-depth and interesting. Goes into how he met Chewie, got the Falcon, and even some of the driving forces that got the rebellion going.

Theyve already said that they dont really care if they break the expanded universe. If some stuff gets left untouched, great, but otherwise the new stuff trumps the old stuff and they do not give a **** if people get mad.

And honestly, i like that idea. Nobody wants strict adaptations, and people want brand new stuff. No way to appease both parties.

I thought the Han Solo Trilogy was not well-liked among Star Wars fans?

I doubt the movies will ever be as good as books though.

Part of the thing with Star Wars though, the original trilogy, much less about the sci-fi and much more about the fantasy. It wasn't so much the story and the special effects and all that, but the coolness of the characters, the amazing concept of the Force, I think even the possibilities. The movies were open enough that your mind filled in the blanks and we tended to fill them with things that made them better.

Contrasted with the newer trilogy, very much bogged down in the details, really bad and bland actors, they basically made an awful backstory to the original movies and instead of giving us cool characters and possibilities, they ran through all the boring details of the story and rather than inferring this massive war, spent half the film with action CGI sequences.

I suppose that's one of the good parts of JJ Abrams Star Trek movie, it was heavy on characters and broad plot lines, and kind of in that way was closer to Star Wars than to Star Trek.

Are you suggesting that Harrison Ford himself does NOT play young Solo?

****

And then I suppose all the new EU content will have to ignore all the contradicted EU material afterwards.

Honestly I would not mind if they forked the universes and gave each one their own continuity.

I liked the Han Solo Trilogy. There are only a handful of Star Wars books I did not like. The Jedi Academy trilogy, Jedi Trial, The Bounty Hunter Wars. Those ones I did not like. Every other book that I have read has been anywhere from good to excellent to outstanding.

I had to look that up. Michael Caine won it for Hannah and her sisters. He couldn't make it to the Academy Awards ceremony because they were filming Jaws 4 at the same time.

My headset, which I bought not more than 2 months ago, has started doing that annoying thing where the right channel keeps cutting in and out, because it is apparently made of substandard garbage.

That is the last time I buy a logitech headset. going to go to the store tomorrow to get a new one.

We had a high speed chase on Hwy 71 down here. It came by my house. Was pretty awesome. Stripped his tires and everything.
