May the Force be with us All

The week of August 11-24 TV Guide had a cover feature of the New Star Wars animated Flick, (The Clone Wars). This was in anticipation of an up-coming animated TV show of the same name.

Well, TV Guide also included a special CD-ROM with that issue. I did not notice the CD at first because I have my TV Guide delivered. Interestingly enough, I didn’t get the Disc, but it was included on the store copy. As you can expect, this irritated me, so I wrote to them and asked for my copy with the disc. After all (I said), why should casual readers get something that I — a dedicaded reader — didn’t get.

Well, This week I received my CD. I hope to watch the CD this week, and then go out to see the flick. I’ll let you know when I have.

I'd be pretty peeved too if I didn't get the extras as a subscriber.

It wasn't due to someone actually stealing the CD from your mailbox, was it? (If so, that's kinda creepy that someone would be doing that.)

It seems the series is set to start in October if I remember the preview bit I saw on Cartoon Network correctly. I also saw the McDonald's toy commercial recently as well.

With my sometimes twisted sense of humor, I can see someone putting it on youtube, but altering the part where Anakin gives his lightsaber to a kid with a sound byte from The Empire Strikes Back.

Anakin: "...you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy!"

Kid: "Do they have Happy Meals outside Earth?"

Anakin: "Uhhhh...no."
