Watch A Scene From The Now-Defunct 'Star Wars' TV Show Concept

Light sabres. Now that I have your attention, watch this video. Before Disney bought the franchise, George Lucas had been kicking around a Star Wars TV show. Though the idea never got to pilot, it's now come to light that a concept video had been made, and while it's a little light on the plot details, it appears to have a decent budget behind it, and it has a light sabre fight. Which is really all you need. In light of the onslaught of five Star Wars films coming our way, it's probably a good thing that we don't have this series as well. But it's still nice to look at.

George Lucas And His Beard Discuss ‘Star Wars’ In 3D And The Delayed Live-Action TV Show

Whoever bet that he wouldn't have a beard and a plaid shirt in this interview owes me five bucks. George Lucas seems to move more slowly than other directors. Perhaps that's because his projects are more widely anticipated than everyone else's. Or maybe it's because he actually moves more slowly than anyone else. In this interview with G4's"Attack of the Show," Lucas discusses what the hold up is for "Star Wars: The Adventures Continue," and why he wasn't ready to convert the six Star Wars films to 3D...until now. As for the TV show, Lucas has 50 hours of the arc crafted, but is just waiting for production costs to become way, way, way cheaper. Like a tenth of what they are for films. So that could be a minute. Essentially, he says he plans on doing it, but stop holding your breath, because it won't happen soon. As for the 3D discussion, he says he's ready to convert for a February 10 release date for Episode I. Without getting too specific, he says he was waiting for the technology to be there, and now it's there. So it's on its way and looking good, by all accounts. If you thought Jar-Jar was up in your face before (metaphorically), wait until you see him in 3D when he's really up in your face! LITERALLY! I'm gonna go lay down. I feel sick.


The New Ryan Lochte Show Might Be The Stupidest Thing On Television

I don't say that lightly. Even by E! and Ryan Lochte standards, the upcoming show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? is a total travesty. Namely because the premise of the show is completely muted and smothered by, "Hey, Ryan Lochte, amiright, ladies?" It's clear that he doesn't know what he should be doing on this show, and it's clear that the E! producers don't have any clearer a picture. So without further ado, go ahead and get dumber with this clip promoting a good-looking idiot with no other material premise to speak of. God bless.


TLC Takes Spectacle Television To New Heights With 'All-American Muslim'

They opted out of the working title 'Look At These Weird Muslims!' TLC, realizing that they've already done midgets, polygamists, and families that breed like rabbits, have decided to branch out with a show that lets middle America know that there are at least five Muslim families that aren't currently plotting to blow up our monuments, hospitals, and schools. All-American Muslim follows five Muslim families that reside in Dearborn, Michigan, a town with the highest density of Muslims in the United States. In an interview with AOLTV (why, AOLTV?), two of the families shed some light on what the series is and isn't about. Hint: They won't be up to Jersey Shore-like antics, which is a shame, because that's probably the only circumstance under which I would watch this show. Assuming this show accomplishes its goal and depicts the five families as normal, well-adjusted Americans (which I'm sure they are), why the hell would anyone watch it? The only way this would serve as any sort of entertainment is if the subjects were doing very strange things (and by "strange," I don't mean praying to Mecca or practicing Islam). It sounds like a Muslim The Osbournes. Hmmm. Maybe I will watch it. Also, don't be alarmed or unsettled for the U.S. Army recruiting ad that is placed before this video. I'm sure that's....just a coincidence. Geez, TLC, you're really firing on all cylinders here, aren't you? 


More Marvel Stuff To Watch: 'Avengers: Infinity War' Teaser

Can Marvel please start streamlining their updates? Remember when I said that Marvel refuses to not be part of the daily conversation probably about fifteen minutes ago? Well, as a case in point, they JUST released an extended trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron and now there's a leaked teaser trailer for their upcoming 2018 and 2019 sequels, The Avengers: Infinity War. Assuming this will soon be offline, the teaser is made from recycled footage as well as voice-over from previous Marvel films -- dialogue that points to the existence of the mysterious Infinity Stones. Finally, we're given a glimpse of Thanos wearing the Infinity Gauntlet as is his favorite pose. Yeah, asshole. We see your Gauntlet.
