What do you get when the wonderfully crazy folks from Robot Chicken take a second swipe at the Star Wars franchise? The Chicken Strikes Back of course. Put Robot Chicken: Star Wars, Episode II in your DVD player, make a bowl full of fresh hot popcorn, grab a large soda, sit back, and enjoy yourself again and again.

While both the Special Extended Edition and the Broadcast Version of Robot Chicken: Star Wars, Episode II are hilarious and well worth the price of admission, the extras are another story. They range from boring at worst to hilarious at best. The show itself is nearly as good as Episode I, but the extras fall short of the first episode. I watched the DVD when I received it but after watching it more than a week later just to be sure, the extras were still not as funny as the original. That said, I'd still recommend Robot Chicken: Star Wars, Episode II for a good belly laugh.
