Darth Vader in Star Wars

Is it just me, or is 'Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith' ALWAYS on HBO? I'd say that each time I turn on my TV there's a 75 percent chance that one of the 10 HBO channels will depict Yoda saying, "Good relations with the wookies I have," or Natalie Portman doing her best to emote while delivering the line, 'Oh, Anakin, hold me like you held me by the lake on Naboo!" And, on the off chance that 'Star Wars' isn't showing, I have HBO on Demand just sitting there and waiting on channel 200, primed and pumped to deliver the goods.

I only mention the ubiquity of 'Sith' on HBO because I credit it with this thought: On this fine Father's Day, it's important to remember that no matter what problems you have with your dad, at least he's not Darth Vader. If, by some fluke, your pops bears the moniker of Darth Vader and also once cut off your hand with a light saber, then I apologize. You got me. Otherwise, go pick up the phone and thank your father for not hunting down and exterminating all the Jedi in the galaxy.
