Awesome! Can't wait! I actually picked the Robot Chicken Star Wars Special up on DVD as a blind buy before I had ever seen any other Robot Chicken episodes. I usually get screwed with blind buys, but this was hysterical and I am now a huge fan.

Thanks for letting me know I had no idea they were even doing a second one.

I actually saw the first one randomly flipping channels one night when it premiered.  I had no clue what robot chicken was either at the time.

As someone who would also like to go to Prom with Joel McHale (I think I just thought up a new thread for the game section), I never miss a Soupl Episode. That was actually how I found out about the episode

I really thought this one was better then the first one. I especialy liked the Bobba Fett parts and the ending about how the Rebels won.

I feel the same, Imrahil.  Certainly quite a few funny sketches but overall not nearly as good as the first one.  I definitely wouldn't call it a disappointment, just didn't live up to the high expectations after the first one.  There was a lot more randomness and guys like Boba Fett just sort of talking and not doing much of anything or like with Darth Vader at the dinner table.  Seems like that dinner one could have been the funniest gag but they totally blew that one IMO.

My favorite definitely was the Jar-Jar Binks GEICO ad.  Laughed out loud at that one.

Maybe not as funny as the first one, but overall it was good. Still, nothing beats the Emperor phone call with Vader in the first one.

With this one, my favorite part was the dinner with Vader at Cloud City after Lando's betrayal. And, Billy Dee did a splendid job reprising his roll!

Also loved the Lando part, but my favorite was the deal altering. Just the thought of Lando in the dress and clown shoes on a unicycle . . . I think it was the stormtroopers and Fett laughing in the background that really did it for me. Maul on the skateboard declaring "At last we will have our revenge!" during the lawyer scene was greatness, too.

You guys have bean sprouts growing out of your ears and eyes. This was funnier and better than the first one. Then again, quality always loses to guys getting hit in the nuts, so I guess it doesn't matter.

The dinner skit was from a previous episode, which they show right after.

They relied a bit too heavily on Palpatine, but there were more hits than misses. I think I enjoyed it a bit more than the first one.

Interestingly, the parts that most people I know always praise as the best parts from the first one (the Palpatine phone call and the "I am your father" scene) were all taken from earlier RC episodes, so if it had just been the original material, I wonder if they would have liked it as much.

This time, i remember the Lando dinner scene from an earlier episode; anyone know if there were any other repeats?

See I love Palpatine, and I really liked the whole bad business trip bit.

I love Palpatine too, and most of his sketches were funny, but I think he works best as a nice occasional surprise. Seeing him show up is less special when it becomes "Palpatine and Friends: The Sketch Show."

I liked Death Ball MD. (was it Death Ball?) I thought it was hilarious; I mean, I had always excepted that it was a torture ball, but a DR? and that would explain what that shot was.  :D

Actually, it was Dr. Ball, MD.

This one was amusing, but most of the skits in the first one were much better. I liked Dr. Ball and the two sketches about Cloud City ("this deal keeps getting worse" and the post-betrayal dinner). The emperor skits were not nearly as good as the phone call sketch from the first one, but the "could this day get any worse" bit was pretty good.

On the whole, I'd give it a B. I got a few good chuckles, but it didn't measure up to the first one.

They said they focused more on story/character this time, where the first one was stuff fanboys would speculate about. Obviously that wasn't true, but it's what they said. All of it was better than the Star Wars on ice skit.
Title: Re: Robot Chicken: Star Wars Part 2
Post by: Chaos on November 19, 2008, 07:43:04 AM
Yes, but being spit in the eye by a camel would be better than the Star Wars on Ice skit, so that's not saying much. ;)

I watched it finally and knew I'd enjoy it. My favorite part was....

That really cracked me up, and I'll never look at it ever the same. Dr. Ball, M.D. giving shots to the jawas...that was cute...

...and I said good day, sir!

I got the 1st Robot Chicken-Star Wars disc from Netflix over the weekend and added it (the episode only) to my Video Collection on my BlackBerry Bold.. 8)

All the Extras were pretty boring to me, but the 22 min episode was pretty funny :D :D

My absolute favorite was the Jar-Jar Binks spoof of Geico commercials.  Ahmed Best apparently won an award for that.

Anytime you can have Seth MacFarlane as Palpatine ranting away at Vader, I'm happy.  "You look like a little mean pepper shaker"
