Star Wars Holiday Special: Watch it in All its Glory!

I have to admit I have never been able to watch it all the way through, it’s just too painful. The Star Wars Holiday Special is basically a tragedy set to film. It defies all attempts at logic and all methods of explanation. It’s like watching a train wreck…you can’t look away.

It’s fascinating how a tiny handful of Betamax and VHS recorders (kids Google Betamax if you want to laugh) back in 1978 apparently managed to record a television special that has never again been officially released within the U.S.

I've tried 3 times. I made it to right after the dance sequence, I think. It gets hazy. It was like being incredibly drunk and hung over. My eyes were seeing something my brain couldn't comprehend, and it was trying to protect itself by causing intense pain, nausea, anything to make me stop looking.
