Episode #124 - The Star Wars Holiday Special

17Dec

It's that magical time of year again. The time when we gather with our loved ones and dress in our finest red robes. The time when we get out our glowing orbs and stand next to a giant tree while Carrie Fischer sings to us about loving one another. The time when Rawwrraawrrrwarrrrrrrrr. It's Life Day! In the most embarrassing moment in George Lucas' career (somehow more embarrassing than Darth Vader yelling "Nooooooooo"), the Star Wars Holiday Special finds Han and Chewie trying to make it back to the Wookie home world of Kashyyyk in time to celebrate Life Day with Chewbacca's family. They're slowed up by a sudden attack of stock footage, leaving Chewie's father(?), wife(??) and son(???) to worry that he won't make it. After passing some time watching cooking shows and Jefferson Starship music videos, their house is ransacked by Imperial officers looking for any sign of rebel activity. Will Han get Chewie back to Kashyyyyyyyyyk in time to stop the Imperials and celebrate Life Day with his family? Who cares! Just show us more Bea Arthur singing in a Cantina, and we'll be sure to have ourselves a Merry Christmas. Grab your thingamajigs, whip up some "Bantha Surprise", and join us as we make things by hand... solo, with the Star Wars Holiday Special! With special guest Farah Jadran!
