Does anybody else remember the Star Wars Holiday Special? I know I do, and I would have been far better off not knowing about it, much less practically being forced to watch it. I remember pretty much how I reacted to learning of it’s existence, I was in disbelief.
I think that gif sums it up well enough. Of course though, I didn’t know just how awful it really was. It seemed so ridiculous, that it had to be fake right? Of course though I wanted to think it was some big joke, but my denial quickly changed as I learned just how real it was.
I didn’t have that exact reaction to it, but that’s rather close to how I felt in my head. Of course though, it all changed into nervous laughter and horror as I had to sit through the whole thing. I honestly wish I could have gotten up and left without any backlash, but that wasn’t happening at the time.
Oh goodness, did it ever hurt to watch it. The cheesiness was far too much for me. One of the things I recall thinking the most at the time, other than why I was watching it, but why was this thing even made? Not that I wanted to know, or even want to know now. Anyways, I just thought I should get my thoughts out there and the weight off of my mind.
