Star Wars Holiday Special (TV Show)

The Incomparable 541: The Incomparable Life Day Special

Happy Life Day! To celebrate this important occasion, The Incomparable hereby presents a commentary track, to be viewed alongside The Star Wars Holiday Special.

You’ll need to find the Holiday Special via the usual rebel channels. We watched the version with ads in it, so if you find a different version, pause the show during the ads.

The Incomparable 226: Stop Circulating the Tapes

It’s the holiday season, when it’s time to consider what’s truly important. We spend time with family and friends and maybe even reserve a few moments to ponder some of life’s mysteries: Is Bea Arthur really Boba Fett? Does Han Solo have a secret Wookie bride? What is Tobor spelled backward? And does C-3PO have eyelids?

Jason Snell with David J. Loehr, John Siracusa, Steve Lutz, Erika Ensign, Tony Sindelar, Monty Ashley and Dan Moren

The Incomparable 71: The Holiday Movie Vault

Grab some eggnog and hitch up your reindeer! It’s time to put six holiday films in the Incomparable Film Vault! We discuss some beloved classics and offer a few surprise choices that redefine what “holiday” and “film” actually mean. What is a realistic depiction of Santa? Is Bill Murray’s best Scrooge not actually in “Scrooged”? Has Clarence the angel left a trail of dead bodies behind him? Is Kris Kringle the original Apple Genius? Happy holidays, everyone!

Jason Snell with Andy Ihnatko, Dan Frakes, Glenn Fleishman, Serenity Caldwell and Steve Lutz
