This is the kind of bold programming ideas that RTE and TV3 need - showing sci-fi classics on a 24-hour rotation. We'd watch it.

SkyHits HD in Germany will begin showing every Star Wars from December 1st to December 14th. That's right.

Two WHOLE weeks of Star Wars. Nothing but Carrie Fisher in a gold bikini, Jedi, Imperial Star Destroyers, Death Stars, lightsabers and Harrison Ford. We couldn't possibly cope.

Not only that, the station is playing the films in their narrative order - which is Episode I: The Phantom Menace and finishing with Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

The station will also be showing Empire of Dreams, the feature-length documentary about the Star Wars saga as well as featurettes in between each film.

Meanwhile, production rolls on for Episode VII and as December 18th, 2015 draws ever closer, this is getting louder and louder in our head.
