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:

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:

Update

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. – Valorum Dec 11 '15 at 23:51
  • You may want to ask a mod to mark this as "featured" so it shows up on the main site. – Valorum Dec 11 '15 at 23:52
  • Ha! :-D Thanks for including me, but I still stick to "Never watched Star Wars, never will." – Rand al'Thor Dec 11 '15 at 23:53
  • @Richard : Already done. And laugh away! :-) – Praxis Dec 12 '15 at 0:05
  • If everyone watches different versions won't we get all out of sync every time there's an edited scene? – KutuluMike Dec 12 '15 at 0:06
  • @MikeEdenfield : I've added a version recommendation. – Praxis Dec 12 '15 at 0:13
  • @Praxis - Good luck actually enforcing that. – Valorum Dec 12 '15 at 0:14

    @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. – Praxis Dec 12 '15 at 0:17

    @Praxis "we've all seen RotJ a million times": a-hem ;-) – Rand al'Thor Dec 12 '15 at 1:58
  • @TARS : I already created chat events for it...do they show up for you? – Praxis Dec 14 '15 at 15:36
  • @Praxis It seems they do, just not in the sideboard. – TARS says Reinstate Monica Dec 14 '15 at 15:45
  • Is the Family Guy special on Netflix or any other streaming service (Hulu, Amazon) or do I have to buy a copy? – Michael Brown Dec 15 '15 at 15:25
  • I have the 6 Disc Collection on Blu-Ray is that roughly the same? – Michael Brown Dec 15 '15 at 15:26
  • Is there a link for the chats? – Michael Brown Dec 15 '15 at 15:27
  • @MichaelBrown : Just visit chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/198 at the times above! :-) – Praxis Dec 15 '15 at 16:23
