Lucas Announces new Star Wars TV Series

Not sure if this has been posted yet but read this:

Though it was appropriate as it mentions the Star Wars Holiday Special too.

Isn't this, like, the 12th time he's announced this?

Discussed here:  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21365041/

Some person, after reading the article,was inspired to start a blog on the SW site sobbing about it in response.  One of the comments was from a person who had read his reaction was, and I quote, "Wow, I wish I could write as much as you do!"  Because long always = good.  My other favorite comment was something like, "Next time, try REAL journalism, (LadyKenobi!)", because it's so easy to miss the enormous red COMMENTARY disclaimer on the headline.

Oh, thank you.  At least it's not the plague.  I think.

I'm actually kind of excited by the potential of a TV series that doesn't focus on the characters from the two movie series. Maybe we'll finally get a lead female Jedi for a change, and other more interesting characters. I've read a few Star Wars Expanded Universe novels and they've been OK. But I'd like to see some of that on the screen too.

Well, here's hoping it'll be watchable.

As long as there's no Jar Jar, Pod Races, Midichlorians or Senate Meetings.

I'll tune in and watch. I'm a die-hard Star Wars nerd, so I'm sure I'll enjoy it.
I'll curl up with my non-Special Edition DVDs of the Original Trilogy and leave what's left of my memories in tact.

I dunno. A Star Wars version of West Wing might be neat to watch. And Qui-Gon Racer has a nice ring too...

Except that the political intrigue is completely lost thanks to George Lucases incredibly boring writing. Now if Tom Clancy wrote the political parts... :D
