Could've been cleaned up

I like Star Wars and my son wants to watch it (But hasn't yet). I may be old-school a bit, but the show could have been made without the name-calling in it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (3 ):

There's no better way to stage a self-deprecating spoof of a story line than to put it in the cupped hands of a Lego cast, and this five-part series definitely doesn't disappoint. It plays out like a CliffsNotes version of the Star Wars story that took six full-length movies -- plus a handful of animated series -- to tell, condensing them to a few minutes' worth of highlights with more than a few hilarious plot twists. Of course the outcome is never in doubt to anyone who knows the story, but Star Wars fans of any age won't want to miss this little gem that's packed with insider jokes (multiple expulsions of the resilient Jar-Jar Binks is only one high point) and lots and lots of Lego-inspired funnies.

Even so, the flip side of marrying two commercial juggernauts such as Star Wars and Lego is that every visual aspect of the show is a full-color ad for the products it inspires. Part of what the show does so well is incorporate as many characters as it can from the movies, if even only for a cameo, but that also increases the chances youngsters will see a product they just can't live without. So long as that's not a problem, this series is a very entertaining pick for kids who know and like the Star Wars story.
