Picked this one up today. The random jokes seemed to come a mile a minute...

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
And while some of them went a bit overboard (Peter slapping Lois after she called him a nerf herder was a bit much), there was a lot of funny stuff.

-The AT-AT falling and going into the "Ssssss...Ahhhhh" motion
-The Rocky IV montage
-The brief appearance of The Hall of Doom
-Dak trying to take the Empire on all by himself
-Turning the classic "I Love You, I Know" line on its head

And the ending made me spit out my Coke.

Chris: Not gonna let you get to me this time, Dad.
Peter: Ok, maybe I should tell another story called "Without A Paddle"
Chris: FUCK YOU, DAD!!!

Without spoiling the actual story and the jokes, I will say that they took the easy route casting Carter Pewterschmidt as The Emperor. They could have knocked it out of the park by using Bertram.

Overall, I was amazed that they managed to make it all flow seamlessly and fit the entire Empire Strikes Back film into an hour. I loved it and will have watched it a handful of times before it airs on FOX. And man, I'll bet FOX just LOVES the shot the show took at them in the intro.

No release date yet for "Return of the Jedi: We Have A Bad Feeling About This", but I'm hoping they go the full monty and extend it to a 90-minute feature.

The shining moment for me was Tom Selleck showing up.

Loved everything mentioned so far. Gotta also add that the Drago montage was awesome.

The best part of waking up is not Folgers in your cup, but knowing that Chuck Norris didn't kill you in your sleep.

It was good, I thought it would be longer then an hour. It felt like it went by too fast. I did love some of the shot for shot scenes from Empire especially the Asteroid field. You are my Nerf Herder is going to be the new nerd phrase for the next few years.

As more of a Trekkie, this still amused me. I loved the end though with the Back To The Future 2 reference that came from nowhere and the robot chicken jokes. Those made the episode worthwhile for me.
