Say It Ain't So, Ben!



Uh-oh. I just read that George Lucas is going to write the first season to his new Star Wars TV show entitled, "Star Wars, Underworld". If you cringed at the simplistic, robot-like dialog of "Star Wars, Phantom Menace" and those other 2 Star Wars prequel films then you share my fear in allowing Mr. Lucas to write anything that he has created (ironically!). Mr. Lucas, with all due respect, can you please, please, put aside your well earned arrogance and take a FUCKING WRITING CLASS before "creating" more disturbingly bad writing and thereby weakening the incredibly rich tapestry of Star Wars folklore that you created so painstakenly in the first two films, "Star Wars, A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back". Ever since you had your hand in the writing of "Return of the Jedi" has the entire series of films become a blundering mess of repetitive fanboy-appealing dialog ("I've got a bad feeling about this.") and hokey, almost criminally bad acting (due in no small part to your own armchair directing efforts). Please, I beg of you! Give the writing chores to someone who has the motivation to succeed at the art of script writing (say, a professional writer!) because his fucking rent depends on it!
