Wars. Hmm. I saw The Phantom Menace without having seen IV, V or VI
So. Were you:
A. Locked in a closet until only recently.
B. VCR Phobic.
C. Aversion to anything directed by men named George.
All that aside, I think you have a perspective that non of us have. I was five when IV was released. I'll never forget sitting in the theater eith my Dad seeing Darth Vader for the first time. Certainly a different view than seeing it all these years later as an adult.
