We still haven't started working our way through the previous Star Wars films. Looks like we can skip Episode I based on a blogger's explanation and many other articles that refer to The Machete Order
. Since I personally have seen only the first two releases (kinda got busy with kids after 1981) I figure it can only be a good thing to not watch a movie with Jar-Jar Binks. If you loved
that character and can give me a good reason to watch a movie that seems to reference a great deal of characters that do not show up in any other episode, I will entertain comments. Doesn't mean I still won't watch it (per what I've read), but I'll read the comments.
