Reader David Strohmenger forwarded along this eyeroller from Entertainment Weakly, a publication I’ve boycotted since 2002:
I just wanted to let you know that the Bullseye page of the latest Entertainment Weekly takes a shot at the prequels. There is a picture from the Super Bowl commercial with the caption ‘Finally a Star Wars prequel we can get behind.’ I guess I shouldn’t be surprised; this is the same magazine that gave the Clone Wars movie an ‘F’.
The funny part is its online arm EW.com has been a happy part of the Clone Wars Booster Club for some reason.
And while perusing ThinkGeek’s site, I noticed that when you run a search for Star Wars, there’s a box at the top of the page that says “Han’s equation: Ep 4-6 > Ep I-III.” Go check it out yourself. I’d never noticed that before and it pretty much ensured that I’ll never buy anything from those guys unless and until they 1) remove it and 2) apologize. Fans of the whole saga have to fight for respect; we’re not gonna get it otherwise.
