Sorry, TV series for you

George Lucas, the man who built one of the most enduring sci-fi series of all time and then proceeded to destroy it with the help of Jar Jar Binks, has announced that nary a Skywalker will appear in the planned Star Wars TV series. Said Lucas:

"It has nothing to do with Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader or any of those people. It's completely different. But it's a good idea, and it's going to be a lot of fun to do."

Let's hope it's better than the prequels. Personally, I'd like to see a sit-com based around the lives of all the unintelligible supporting characters. Like Greedo, Admiral Ackbar and Nien Nunb sharing a cramped studio apartment in the East Village. They're the original odd couple! Er, threesome.
