The episode would have been too long to squeeze into 22 minutes but it seems to drag on in it's 45 minutes. As much as I like "Intergalatic Proton-powered Electrical Tentacle Advertising Droids" as a reference to "Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm-flailing Tubeman", you can find a lot of filler throughout. Some of the ship sequences are downright boring too. One of my favourite moments in the entire episode was the opening crawl:
A NEW HOPE
It is a time of civil war, and renegade paragraphs floating through space. There's cool space battles, and the bad guy is the good guy's dad, but you don't find that out 'til the next episode.
And the hot chick is really the sister of the good guy, but they don't know it, and they kiss. Which is kind of messed up. I mean, what if they had done it instead of just kissed? Angelina Jolie kissed her brother once. Yeah, she did. You know it, I know it, and her dad knows it. That's why they hardly ever talk anymore. You can run away to Africa, but you can't run away from the truth.
Oh, by the way, here's a tip for you: when this is over, go out and rent the movie "Gia." She's way naked in it and makes out with another chick and everything. It's awesome. I stumbled across it late night on HBO after I had just got back from hockey, and I almost fainted, But I digest...
Princess Leia was coming back from buying space groceries when this happened...
