Silver Linings Playback 34 – Star Wars Holiday Special

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of December, they are watching Christmas movies.

When Silver Linings Playback launched in May, Joel and Andy spent the month watching maligned Star Wars films. So it’s only fitting that they end the year by watching the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, a made-for-TV movie so reviled that for years the cast refused to talk about it in interviews and George Lucas tried to have all copies destroyed.

[Editor’s Note – While it isn’t officially streaming anywhere, bootleg copies of the special can be found on YouTube, including this link right here.]

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott
