    Shmi had to come from somewhere...

    Has anyone ever heard the NPR radio dramas? (Phil, I'm looking at you here!) Are they any good? Are they worth tracking down. I'm looking for a little Star Wars to muck up my ipod with, (that isn't a soundtrack) and the books on tape drive me crazy, because most of them that I can find are abridged! Who wants anything that's abridged?... As of right now, I've resorted to plugging a mini to mini from my headphones jack into my mic jack and made an mp3 of the first half of Empire. Let me tell you this; it makes weaving a lot less tedious.

    The radio dramas are excellent and really expand the story. I have a 12-CD box set of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back plus a 15-CD box set of all three films. The trilogy set had new extras without the extras that were on the initial release, so I ended up getting ANH and ESB twice.

    I got totally lucky the November before last, a temporary bookstore here in Austin had an unopened LE (numbered) edition of the trilogy radio dramas on CD for $39.00. One of my best collector finds.

    Listening to them on headphones will really make the stereo more impressive, too. I first listened to them on WBEZ-FM in 1981 and 1983. Return of the Jedi was completed years later in 1996. Funding for radio dramas had dried out after The Empire Strikes Back. The success of releasing the first two dramas on CD and audiotape in the early '90s made it possible to complete the saga.

    I can't speak for ESB or RotJ, but the original SW Radio Drama is a classic. It's a greatly expanded story (not sure if any of it's considered canon) and the overall tone is pure "Flash Gordon" cornball soap opera cheese, especially the early scenes with Leia and some Snidely Whiplash Imperial officer. I'm pretty sure you can hear him twisting his mustache a few times.

    Ever wonder what happened when Lando, Han, Leia, and Chewbacca sat for dinner after being captured in Cloud City? [link=http://www.adultswim.com/video/?episodeID=8a25c39215b8f3910115b8ff70860020]Robot Chicken[/link] has the answer. NOTE: May not be work safe. It is Adult Swim, after all.

    Wow, that was so incredibly not funny. You'd think with the material and the past RC Star Wars bits that at least one of the jokes would have been accidentally funny.

    Wow--he's good but his Han Solo is really great. I didn't know a Harrison Ford impersonation could even exist.

    I always respect someone who can do a good Chewie impersonation.
