I have been watching the series again on Blu-Ray and the "new" trilogy really is total crap.

The first movie is a total waste on every front and really set that series off in a bad direction. Looking back now, I can tolerate the second and third films in a "Stupid, made for kids, WTF are they doing???" sense, but that is about it. There are just too many things that are silly and make no sense. I challenge anybody to sit through that first movie, go until the end credits roll, and tell me what the hell the pod race and Jar Jar and some trade dispute of some random planet really have to do with anything.

The new trilogy really is a beautiful art piece - just turn off the sound and look at all the images and detail put into the visuals - but is otherwise lifeless and idiotic.

Then I got to the second trilogy and it is a completely different story. The movies are still kid friendly and have moments of humor, but they do it without being stupid or insulting. Further, you are dropped into a world and accept the things they present rather than being given utterly stupid explanations or incredibly ridiculously implausible scenarios. It is pretty clear that Lucas is the type that needs people to control or guide him and that he works best within limitations.
A few people watches Episode 1 and a number of people laughed at it.
Thinking I bought the old trilogy with three crappy movies included for free,
