Episodes II, III and IV

So I saw Episode III yesterday, and came home and (after the 24 finale) watched Episode IV. Wow. I'll never be able to watch the first three movies again without getting a chill. Because really, for the last thirty years we've cheered Luke and the gang as they fought the mean guy in the black helmet... but now we know who's inside that helmet, really, and how he got there -- the manipulation, the pain, the betrayal and all the rest.

Okay, I think that's it for now. I want to watch Episode V before I go to work at 6p, so I'm sure I'll have some more commentary then.
