Oh man, me too. My step dad told me while we were watching it, so when it got to the end I was like "What's he freaking out about?"

It was awesome being blown away by the big reveal. I still remember it as probably the most amazing "movie moment" I ever got to experience first hand.

(When the first movie came out I was a huge fan, we didn't even know there would ever be a 2nd movie. There was no internet or anything back then that could possibly create any type of spoilers or even much speculation with other fans, I didn't even know any other fans. The best I could do was hang out at my local comic store and hope to hear any news on the chalkboard message board. )

Dalton, were you surprised when you heard Chet Lemon say "No, Dalton, I am your Father"?

Surprised? I was fucking elated. The only way I could have been happier is if Tom Brookens would have said it.

It was shocking, yes. There were no internets with the IMDBs and their wacky spoilers. We would get a line in a magazine and read it over and over and pray for more info next month.

lol, it seems silly now. Does this sort of "shock" still happen in movies and TV shows? Or was it just cause I was a kid? The only show I can think of that had a similar air about it - like "WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT?" - was The Sopranos (for the record "I am your father" >>>>>>>> Onion Rings). I guess LOTR was big, but there were those book things that told you what was going to happen.

I remember a big debate on whether it was going to be called "Return of the Jedi" or "Revenge of the Jedi" and my geeked out cousin telling me that Jedi's don't get revenge, so it had to be Return of the Jedi. Apparently, he was right - and all these years later it still stings cause "revenge" is way more badass than "return".

JR getting shot in Dallas was a big deal. The TV series the Fugitive's last episode had people riveted. Then there was Ross/Rachel. That last one was a joke.

I remember the Revenge/Return thing, too, but I never did talk to your idiot cousin. I think there were printed materials with "Revenge" in there, but, as you say, Lucas decided that Revenge, while best erved cold, is not to be served by the Jedi.

Yes, I didn't phrase that right. I meant recently have there been any shows that riveted a large amount of people. Lost and Heroes are pretty big, but not like those examples you mentioned above. I guess there's more choices nowadays. I have like 500 channels or someshit.

Part of it is definitely the plethora of options you have, so much fragmentation and channels directly aimed at specific demos.....

Who shot Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks was semi-recent and had a lot of people watching....but not like the above examples, or the last episode of M*A*S*H......

Dallas completely reversed karma'd itself with this twist though:



I wish I was around when the original trilogy came out, but I was part of the generation that caught it on VHS. I remember owning the '90s box set of the original releases, with the cheesy Leonard Maltin/George Lucas interviews, then seeing the special editions in theaters (although I don't remember much from them), owning the special edition VHS tapes, and now owning the 2004 DVDs.

I guess the next frontier for these is Blu Ray and eventual 3D re-release... which is totally fucking stellar. My jealousy for guys like NSW and Phanan will know no bounds; they got Lando, the badass black dude, and I got fucking Watto, the stingy Jewish stereotype - that may say it all right there.

Oh god, I remember those interviews very well. Lucas seemed thoroughly bored and Maltin had that cheesetastic grin plastered on his face the whole time. Wow. That brings me back.
