    I thought it was a good talk, he talked about a variety of things e.g. Young Indy, working on the movies, 3D Star Wars, The Clone Wars. But I think what got everyone excited was when he said the Live Action Series could go on for 400 plus episodes and there would be other series being created to coencide with the series in the future :D

    He was a nice guy especially when I met him by chance in the platinum suite he signed my pass and I got a photo with him!Hurray!

    Dude - when you asked about TENCLO - i was like 'no way' and then Rick told you to give him a copy of it, and I was just like 'wow, god I hope he watches it!' Awesome stuff man! :)

    Yeah and when Warwick said, "now you have something to watch on the plane", that was awesome. I wish I had something to give him.

    Ven you should have asked "so how many Jedi are in the new series" that would also had been great!

    Meh - he was being too tight lipped about the new series, he'd have just had to like laugh it off or something!

    Oui - you need somewhere to upload them to, e.g. Facebook or Photobucket, then you'll get a URL you can link to - FF:UK doesn't support pic uploads directly I don't believe!

    So 400 episodes at a rate of, say, 25 episodes per season would go on for how many years? o_O

    ...Math not so high on the curriculam in the States? :p

    Rick did say it was going to be a multi-series concept though, so it's hard to say. Assume it goes on air in 2010 - i reckon it'll maybe roll up for 10 years?

    Ten years? Now whose math curriculum deserves to be challenged? :p

    My point was that his figure seems oddly high and needed more explanation. How can he possibly say now that the show is going to run for the next sixteen years?! It might get low ratings and be pulled long before then. Are they planning on airing new episodes more than once per week?

    Well, the ten was me assuming they do say 2 or 3 series, not just 1 and so there's a bit of overlap! :)

    Basically what Lucas has done is said "I wanna be bigger on Tv than Star Trek" He has Star Trek envy, [face_devil]

    Though unlike Star Trek, we're used to a lot of stories of random nobodies and still love them so it might work - if they can get it right.
    I mean, it won't be a Dreadnaught caught in a mysterious nebula every other episode :p


    Also loved the TENCLO plug! Loved it and I hope he did/does see it! :D

    Long shot I know, but did anyone film the Rick Talk?

    I have listened to the audio on the SW blogs (awsome!), but you can't beat seeing the real deal!
