DSTV are currently offering a ten day Star Wars special on a dedicated channel. Yay! An entire channel – Star Wars, 24/7   – how much better can it get? I’m currently watching Star Wars Rebels  which is an animated series, in half hour episodes. Suits me. In between my frantic dashing to and fro, I can collapse on my couch and lose myself in a universe filled with the heroic exploits of the noble Jedi versus the inhuman villains of the evil Empire.  We zoom from galaxy to galaxy, (what would we do without hyper-drives?), dodging gigantic hostile creatures or armies of robotic troopers; we’re hiding behind asteroids, or exploring buried Jedi temples. It’s all so straightforward: Good versus Evil. No deep psycho-social issues, no emotional traumas, no politics,no literary nuances :  just the comradeship of the brave few battling the forces of evil. Whoosh! I want a light-sabre  and Jedi powers for Christmas, please.

    Hi Alison, I can understand why you enjoy writing science/fiction and are so good at it.
    Being transported up there ‘on high’ really gives you a literary high.
    However, if you look around on planet Earth, you will also find ‘the brave battling the forces of evil’. … Only thing is, it’s not quite so straight-forward or so easy.

    We all want that for Christmas. You are not alone in this galaxy

    That made me chuckle. Enjoyed reading it. Haven’t watched any Star Wars in ages.

    LOL!! What a joy to have a whole channel dedicated to pure escapism. I only have SABC, but they provide four channels of pure escapism … there’s nothing to watch so I manage to escape being a couch potato 🙂
