Merry Christmas, everybody! The last day of our Culkin Keatmas is upon us, and with it, our final gift to you. Jim and I break down the Star Wars Holiday Special and take it for all it’s worth. Wookiee porn, deeply unfunny instructional videos, ill-fitting helmets, and hours of uncaptioned Wookiee dialog are considered and de-coded but we’re still left with the big question… Why? Since all involved have disowned the project we may never know. But whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Life Day or any other tradition that aims to turn the coldest, darkest part of the year into something more, you are in our thoughts, and you have our gratitude for all the love and support you’ve shown us this past year. We’ll see you in 2018!
That’s right, you saw the title. For this years Merry Culkin Keatmas grand finale, we watch the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special. Thrill as the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk is blockaided by sinister Imperial forces that stand between Chewbacca and his family celebrating Life Day. Honestly, that description I just typed is 1000% cooler than the awful reality; Star Wars providing a thin vinear attempting to cover that most awful of television traditions; the variety show.
A.Ron’s son Mine Dragon swung by the studio over the holiday break to record his thoughts on Star Wars: Rogue One, the infamous “Holiday Special”, and Disney’s latest CGI masterpiece, Moana. Enjoy!
