Try the Machete Star Wars play order.

The order is IV, V, II, III and finally VI.
(leaves out Phantom Menace)

Can't drink beer before dark, I fall asleep.

Geekfests cannot be enjoyed while sleeping.

I like where you're coming from.

Now where did I put that Stormtrooper's outfit?

Ewoks can be allowed if ritual torture is part of the proceedings. Jar Jar is also allowed under similar circumstances.

This week we have been showing our 5 year old the "proper" Star Wars as he loves the Lego game so much we thought he might like it.
Did the correct IV,V,VI but then realised we only had II out of the newer ones.

Wednesday eve my missus says she saw the 9 disc blu-ray box-set for £56 in Tesco, so I nipped down there and picked it up.
Looked at the receipt - £74 FFS! Took it back and they explained it went up this evening! I did a barcode search with my phone and Tesco Electrical have it for £49.99.... Refund and ordered in on-line.....

Watching the Robot Chicken Star Wars trilogy is a lot quicker, mind you.

You'd probably be left with time to watch the Family Guy ones too.

This thread inspired me last weekend biggrin
I made the missus (who had never seen any of themyikes) watch the Machete order at the weekend.

Worked very well! She understood all the connections that I think perhaps may not have been so evident otherwise.

Couldn't manage it in a day though! Forgot how long each film is!

Best bit - didn't have to watch episode 1! smile

Funny link on there, 10 script changes that would have changed star wars.

I watched these over a week but as allways I get distracted and turn round and face my pc. Think a holiday is required to watch them properly in 1 go.

I did it with lord of the rings extended. That was a long haul.
