November 16th is the date for the premier of Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II. So, you’ve got roughly three months to go online and watch the first installment. Adult Swim has two options - you can watch the show online, or you can buy the recently released DVD.

I must admit that I had never heard of Robot Chicken: Star Wars until they were recently nominated for an Emmy for Best Animated Series. Okay, okay, I live in a cave. Actually, the only animated series I watch are geared towards preschoolers. And though my five year old loves Star Wars, I’m guessing it’s inappropriate.

For those of you who have no idea what this show is, here is a quote from Wikipedia, “The program is a sketch comedy that "parodies" a number of pop culture conventions using stop motion animation of toys, action figures, dolls, and claymation (usually for special effects) and various other objects, such as tongue depressors and The Game of Life pegs.” And, clearly, there is no bigger pop culture convention than Star Wars

The second installment of Robot Chicken: Star Wars will be just as entertaining and star-studded as the first... “Many members of the voice cast from the first special, including original "Star Wars" actors Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams -- reprising their roles as Princess Leia and Lando Calrissian, respectively -- are back. Also returning are Seth MacFarlane as Emperor Palpatine, Conan O'Brien as Zuckuss, Breckin Meyer as Admiral Ackbar and Boba Fett, and Ahmed Best as Jar Jar Binks. Green will voice several characters, including Ponda Baba. Joining the voice cast this time around is Andy Richter."

So, catch up on the missed episodes while you can, or just re-watch them for fun. With a combo like Billy Dee Williams, Seth MacFarlane ( I love you!), and Seth Green, how can you go wrong?
