Not quite as good as the first one but still really funny and creative
After watching the first Star Was parody thanks to the kindness of someone lending it to me, it wasn't long after laughing myself silly that I discovered that they had made a second one a few months ago. After this it took me very little time in trying to borrow the second one, which I did. The approach is the same as in the first Star Wars special as sequences from the film are reimagined and minor characters are taken on different threads. So we have an awkward dinner at Cloud City, the adventures of black probe Dr Ball and several other examples. The show moves very quickly with some of the sketches being blink and miss it quick and, with this approach it must be said that it tends towards being hit and miss.
Fortunately it will have many more hits than misses for those fans of this style of humour and Star Wars and the quality is surprisingly high yet again. To me it was not quite as hilarious as the first special but it is hard to complain when there are still so many hits. It hurts itself by making it all look so easy as well but it is not. I had never imagined mice driving the little Death Star robots but this is in one of the sketches; I use it as an example as it is relevant, funny and creative and the special is full of such moments. The voices involved are impressive and it helps the comedy to have them involved doing their characters. It is silly and funny but viewers who like any modern comedy that lives on references will find much to enjoy here.
