    Thought this would be better in the Off-Topic section, but mods please move if needed...


    Having seen the original trilogy in theaters in the 1970s and 1980s, then witnessing the release to TV several years later, this was a big deal. I remember that TESB was time compressed, and I hated that.

    Anyway, here's the TV commercial for TESB airing, featuring JEJ as Vader.

    I remember watching it that night. My dad tickled me and I swallowed my gum. Then we ate C-3POs cereal on the fold out couch. Good times.
