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.
