STRIP: Why, George? WHY?!
So, we recently watched the two season of Spaced that Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevinson put out some time ago. In the show, Tim (Simon's character for those that haven't had the pleasure) has a HUGE hate on for Episode 1. This made us relive our own personal hatreds of that atrocity.
And consequently, A STRIP WAS BORN!
I HATE Jar Jar fucking Binks. HATE HIM WITH THE FIRE OF A THOUSAND SUNS!! He ruined for me all that was wonderful about Star Wars. And before anyone talks about Ewoks being the same as Jar Jar. At least the Ewoks didn't speak in some ridiculous bastard version of Pig Latin and make a mockery of the Senate and made the Empire look like a GOOD idea!
Hate. Him. So. Much.
Sorry about that. I try not to think about it too much. Makes my blood pressure go all hinky. Anyway, enjoy the strip. And if you get the chance, track down Spaced. If you received any joy whatsoever out of Shawn of the Dead and/or Hot Fuzz, you will love Spaced. Directed by Edgar Wright, written by Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevinson. The show has tons of cameos from the movies as well (although I suppose it would be in reverse since the show came out first)!
You may now return to your regularly scheduled Sunday.
