I admit it. I have managed to squeak out almost a quarter-century of life in a non-third-world country having NEVER SEEN ANY FRAGMENT OF A STAR WARS MOVIE!
I also work in the scientific community. About 90% of my male co-workers randomly ejaculate upon hearing the first 5 notes of “The Imperial March.” The obscene anticipation for this final prequel that has been hovering around me for the past month has been all I can handle. I have made up my mind. I have to watch this. It is my duty as an uber-nerd to incorporate this as part of my being. I must embrace it. I must buy a plastic lightsaber at Wal-Mart for $24.99. I must touch myself whenever I watch a movie with Carrie Fisher. I must genetically engineer a pet Ewok.
I’ve decided that I’m going to watch the entire sequence, but I have a question: Should I start with Episode 4, like everyone else has done, or should I begin with Episode 1? Thoughts? Opinions?
Also, are there any other Star Wars virgins out there? Maybe I just feel like a damned freak due to the demographic of my colleagues.
