Generation Jedi

Got home late last night, and sat down to watch some TV for half an hour. While searching the channels I came across a documentary/comedy on BBC 3 called Generation Jedi. It was presented by Dermot O'Leary, who was describing his life growing up as a Star Wars fan facing such problems as his parents giving away his Star Wars figures, and girls not living up to the standard set by Princess Leia.

The funniest bit was when he compared the night New Labour first came into power in Britain and everyone dancing to the song Things can only get Better to the Ewok celebration at the end of Return of the Jedi, and then preceeded to track the last few years as Labour slides to the Dark Side of the Force. Very good :-)
