The question is the title. No flaming allowed, take it someplace else. It has been 5 years since the prequels have wrapped. Let's go back in time to the end of the 20th century. When you went into the theaters in May 1999 what were you expecting? The second coming of your savior? I'll admit Episode 1 was okay, I didn't think it a tragedy, I thought I might had expectations a little to high. The good news was I came prepared thanks to Leonard Maltin. Now, I figured maybe by the time 2002 roles around the grumbling would stop. After all it's the Clone Wars. We've been waiting forever to know what the Clone Wars was about, ever since old Ben mentioned it in the film formerly known as StarWars. But no, people kept complaining, why? Sure there were a few lines that should have been left out, but I thought it was at least good. In 2005 I figured, great, it's the start of the Jedi purge and the great lightsaber battle between a Young Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi, that made Vader the machine man that we know him to be. After all we have been imagining what it would look like for years. But the people who've been grumbling since 1999, continued to grumble. Come on! Episode III was the best and far more emotionally impact-full than the other three films. Some critics even said, "it was the best of all six." I wouldn't go that far. But, did you grow up watching StarWars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi? And at the point you started understanding how to read Roman numerals, did you start to ask yourself: why does it say 4, 5 and 6? Where's 1,2 and 3? And after you get your wish, your disappointed? Why, did Jar Jar Binks screw it up for you? Of all the ungrateful jerks. I even heard people say, "I'd rather endure the StarWars Holiday Special than the prequels." G-d forbid. The Holiday Special was worse by far. Moreover, there is no I-VI Star Wars episodic movie series. There's the PT and then there's the OT. You wanted a back story, what's missing? I'm glad I am not still wondering, "what was that reference about?" By the way my favorite movie in the series was Episode VI Return of the Jedi, that's right. Star Wars freaking Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Take that you PT, OT segregationalists.
