Bonnie sez, "After watching this fan-made Dallas-style intro of Star Wars, I'm beginning to wonder if J.R. and Darth Vader were one in the same."
Star Wars / Dallas opening
I remember that show! It came on right after The A-Team, right?
*cough* Star Trek as Love Boat *cough*
The Empire’s striking out.
Star Trek TNG + Dallas:
TOS + A-Team:
BSG (reimagined) + DS9:
BSG (reimagined) + Stargate SG-1:
Ha ha! This is great. I didn’t remember Dallas had such a funky music (Last time i saw it 20 years ago) and i love it!
Very nice. :-)
It really makes you appreciate the contribution of John Williams’ Star Wars music!
Seeing the links in the comments to videos of Star Trek Love Boat videos reminded me of a sketch I saw years ago that had Patrick Stewart as the captain of the Pacific Princess in flying through the Star Trek universe. (video)
i swear they did the same thing on “the muppet show”
but with whats his face – the cheap airline tickets guy –
but that cant be – can it?
omg wtf is his freakin name –
*looks up the cover of “common people”*
omfg – william shatner — if someone can find the link to the muppet version of william shatner as captain of loveboat – i’ll give them a free ride in my mercedes – and a cookie
Victor @ #4: Oh yeah, Dallas had a great theme song.
That’s the original theme from the first seasons, the later seasons had a less funky (then: 70’s-sounding) theme.
And OH MY GOD – WHY DO I REMEMBER THIS?!
What’s nice about this is how it so sharply puts into relief, (reveals), the essential cheesy 70’s vibe of Star Wars. Star Wars product has become such a part of culture that its understandably hard to see it clearly for what it is = junky half-baked, yet admittedly enjoyable, trash.
a spoiler warning would have been nice.
Star Wars? Dallas? What century is this? Grampa, where were you when JR was shot?
So did Han shoot J.R. (first?)
For Star Wars/Stargate, see The Stargate Cantina.
All time classic SNL: Love Boat: The Next Generation
Doesn’t the director’s name come last? Or is that just for movies?
how about a Rockford Files mashup. That had a great theme opener.
I can’t wait for the ‘Who Shot D.V.’ episode!!
My money is on R2
Holy shit, that was awesome.
This makes me think it would be kind of cool for a network to actually do this. I would much rather watch an “episode” of Star Wars, than the results show of any number of currnet programs.
FTW! I’d watch that show. What network will it be on?
