    I love the USA shows. Psych has been a fav of mine for years. I missed the last season of Burn Notice though. :( I love NCIS too.

    I thought the prequels, and at least the final 30 minutes or so of ROTS were the "Origin" movie(s) for Vader?!? :confused:

    I want a Wedge Antilles origin movie. Hijinks at Gus Treta, starring Wedge, Mirax, and Booster.

    Actually, that would be darn cool!

    However, let's have Hoojibs at Gus Treta ... perhaps our furry friends can somehow be retconned into the story, causing the explosion.

    I want to see an Origin film about Jek Porkins. Of course he would have to start of slim, perhaps he could be played by Christopher Mitnz-Plasse. The tragic irony of the film, is that Porkins was endeavouring to get back to his former glory days, and during the Battle of Yavin, he was committed to the GFFA version of the Subway Challenge, ala Jared Fogle.

    That sounds more like a 10-minute animated short before the main feature.

    Good idea! All new Star Wars films should have anime shorts before the main feature. If "REBELS" is half as good as this, I will be happy...

    The short is a backdoor pilot, obviously.

    I would actually like shorts like that before all of the new movies.

    I love that video. Sure, I hate seeing the Rebels lose, but that battle is awesome!

    The last few seasons have been a little on the crazy side in my opinion, but its still a heck of a lot better then a lot of stuff on TV. I recommend watching the last two episodes back to back, otherwise, you will end up wanting to see the finale even more after seeing the penultimate episode.
    I love them too, though I am unfortunately behind on White Collar and Suits. I like Psych and Covert Affairs, though I am also somewhat behind on them too. However, I don't care for the new show Graceland. I hate it when I like shows on different channels that end up airing at a similar time on the same day, Mondays and Tuesdays are notorious for having this happen, which is part of the reason why I am behind on most of the USA shows and I doesn't help that I keep conveniently ending up with Tuesday and now Monday classes.

    My choice for New Leia would be Willa Holland.

    But I doubt they'll be doing recasts of the OT, as much as I'd like to.

    I could not see her as Leia but for Jania is could be possible.

    They could use Yulia Tymoshenko. I hear she's out of work. :p

    What? It could be precisely the break she's been looking for.

    Wedge Antilles: Backdoor Pilot is a different kind of video feature.

    Get clear Wedge, you can't do anymore good back there.
