In honour of the impending theatrical release of Episode VII of the Star Wars film franchise, let's watch Episode VI, The Return of the Jedi:

enter image description here

To set a "standard", let's aim to watch the 2004/2006 DVD release version. The 2011 version is only longer in one scene (as far as I can tell), and so there should be only one need to resync. Watch other versions at your own peril.

I'm proposing 11 pm UTC (11 pm GMT, 6 pm EST) on either Tuesday the 15th or Wednesday the 16th.

People can vote below for Tuesday or Wednesday. I'll call a victor at 11:59 pm UTC on Sunday.

Everyone is invited, including the user who said these things:


As of 23h59 UTC on 13 Dec, both options (Tuesday the 15th and Wednesday the 16th) had an equal number of votes.

So here's what we'll do:

  • On Tuesday the 15th at 23h00 UTC, we'll watch Return of the Jedi (the 2004/2006 or 2011 versions, which have minimal difference in length, or another version if you don't mind being out of sync) — to be hosted by our very own Wad Cheber

  • On Wednesday the 16th at 23h00 UTC, we'll watch It's a Trap!, the Family Guy version of RotJ! — to be hosted by yours truly

    Given the vast array of versions of RotJ, I'm tempted to tune in just so I can laugh at you trying to coordinate things.

  • You may want to ask a mod to mark this as "featured" so it shows up on the main site.

  • If everyone watches different versions won't we get all out of sync every time there's an edited scene?

    @Richard : I'm not going to try. As I said above, people can watch other versions at their own peril. Also, we've all seen RotJ a million times. It's not going to matter if someone's complaint about CGI eyelids on ewoks comes 5 minutes before someone else has gotten there.

  • Is the Family Guy special on Netflix or any other streaming service (Hulu, Amazon) or do I have to buy a copy? Dec 15, 2015 at 15:25
  • I have the 6 Disc Collection on Blu-Ray is that roughly the same? Dec 15, 2015 at 15:26
  • Is there a link for the chats? Dec 15, 2015 at 15:27
  • @MichaelBrown : Just visit chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/198 at the times above! :-)
