  Thanks muchly rsuaver.  Learned something today.  Had no idea what "Machete Order" was, so, off to Google-is-my-friend I went.  For those interested, the short version to "Machete Order" derivation is "the idea was first floated by a blog called nomachetejuggling, and the order was named after that blog."  More details HERE.    And, if you've read the previous HERE and want more, try OVER HERE.

To watch in "Machete Order" watch in the following order:
    • Episode 4
    • Episode 5
    • Episode 2
    • Episode 3
    • Episode 6

Class dismissed.

I prefer the originally released order over machete order. It's just too bad they can't air the Despecialized versions on TV.

Ahh, yes!  Another Star Wars movie term for my always expanding vocabulary, "Despecialized". = )  Back to Google-is-my-friend I went.  Assuming (Yes, I've been there many times before. = ) I've found the correct term referenced by Slickone, HERE's the Wikipedia explanation of Harmy's Despecialized Edition, for those not in the know.  "Harmy's Despecialized Edition, is a series of fan edits of the first three films in the George Lucas-created Star Wars franchise:  Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.  The edits were created by a team of Star Wars fans led by Petr "Harmy" Harmáček, an English teacher from Pizen, Czech Republic." Hit the above link for a more in depth explanation of why it was felt this to be necessary.  Quite interesting. 

Thanks Slickone.
