    After years of avoiding them, I think I might check them out to see what all the fuss is about. Is there a certain order I should watch them in? I read somewhere that I shouldn't go into numerical order...

    There's 2 trilogies and it doesn't matter what order you watch them in because they are kids movies, mostly to sell toys

    Yes. Watch the original trilogy in order. Then take the prequels and throw them in the trash.

    If you're feeling suicidal, but don't have the guts to go through with it, then skip the movies and watch the Star Wars Holiday Special. That ought to do it.

    Yes. Star Wars episode 4 A New Hope. Episode 5 Empire Strikes Back. Star Wars episode 6 Return of the Jedi. And if you MUST watch the new ones, watch only episode 3 Revenge of the Sith.

    My daughters wanted to watch them so we can go see 7 together.

    They wanted to go in order.

    Well, we're stopped halfway thru Ep. 2 and they can't see what the big deal is.

    I feel like I've failed as a father. :suicide:

    The failure is thinking that the prequels are worth it at all. They are pure shit.

    My prediction for 7 is better than all the prequels but worse than 456.
