Basically, if you saw and loved the first Robot Chicken: Star Wars special (or, for that matter, if you saw it and hated it), you'll know what you're in for with this second part. It just continues on with more parodies of more things that will be known to casual fans and the die-hards. Sometimes, in fact, I can't seem to remember what some segments are from what special, since if you watch the two 30-minute episodes back to back it makes it feel complete. Then again, there are a few truly memorable things about this one (I believe this one had Lando Calrissian's very badly times joke: "Who has two thumbs and betrayed his friends? This guy! Oh... too soon."), or the whole bit involving that black-ball probe droid or whatever it's called. But the best thing of all is a running "plot" with the bounty hunters ad Boba Fett, leading up to a hilarious display of masculine pathetic prowess as Fett tries to show off to another guy trapped with him in the Sarlac pit. If for nothing else, for anyone on a level of Star Wars fandom, the opening with the Ewoks is worth your time scanning around on Cartoon Network (or, for that matter, if and when they release Episode 2 on DVD). It's silly, stupid, sophomoric, and clever as all hell - like the show itself, if you're in the right mood and frame of mind for the sense of parody, it's bliss.
