Luke's Sister

We all know that Episodes I, II and III are the worst things ever, and that the new-edition Episodes IV, V, and VI are abominations, but I recall days where we had enough to complain about without these new catastrophes.

In Return of the Jedi, audiences discover, as does Luke and Leia, that Luke and Leia are brother and sister! Gasp. Oh wait, it doesn't really matter. Is this Lucas's way of amazing his audience with family information, the way he did in The Empire Strikes Back? Of course. However, nothing could have been as startling and life-altering as the news that Darth Vader is Luke's father, short of discovering that the Emperor is Luke's mother, (the Emperor is, as we know, played by a woman, after all.)

Nice try, Lucas. But stop adding stupid elements that only confound the rest of the series. Now instead of "Oooh they kissed." We're shouting, "Ewe, they kissed!" And the series has an entirely different flare to it, one that is nasty!

(And while I'm at it, Lucas, stop calling me whenever you need a ride someplace!)


  1. I do hear star tours and its new multiple storylines (all of which have got to be as apocryphal as the firsts ludicrous 'lets go on a death star run') is good, there may be redemption for this series yet...

  2. I don't trust the new Star Tours. If it has Jar-Jar Binks so help me....
