Have any of you ever watched the infamous Holiday Special? Any thoughts or comments?

I had always heard that it was really bad, but I thought that perhaps people were being too critical of it. So, last summer I watched it on YouTube and barely made it though the whole thing. Not even comedy legend Harvey Korman was able to to save that show. I just about lost my mind in the first ten minutes, in which all of the dialogue was in Shyriiwook.

Yes. First Appearance: Boba Fett. 'Nuff said. -nods-

Shivalka: Darth Baras is quite large, isn't he?
Joran Karn: You, my dear Sith, have just mastered the art of understatement.

I remember watching it when it aired. The one and only time it was ever on TV.

Yeah, that Fett cartoon was pretty good. Best part of the entire special.

The MST3K guys did a Rifftrax on it. I swear that running commentary was the only way I made it through it.

I saw it as a kid, and as I recall, even my 6 year old Star Wars obsessed brain couldn't stay interested. As a 40 year old, it was pure torment.

Bad acting, bad jokes, bad music. Ill-fitting costumes, terrible characters, ridiculous props. It really was the worst thing ever on TV.
