Countdown to Christmas: The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)

It is regarded as one of the worst Christmas specials in television history, which is a little bit odd, considering that it is spun off from one of the biggest movie franchises of the latter half of the 20th century.

In 1978, CBS presented The Star Wars Holiday Special, which reunited most of the cast of the previous year's sci-fi blockbuster. Critics panned it, and it was never shown on television again. It would be another few years before the next film, "Empire Strikes Back", hit theatres, and, you know the rest.

FuzzyMemories.TV uploaded this clip, which includes Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) singing an "Ode to Life Day", which is how they celebrate Christmas in a galaxy far, far away.........

Rating: D. What I saw of this wasn't that great, and I was looking for something else to watch in short order.
