//// Description ////
"It was a long time ago -- 30 years to be exact -- in a galaxy not so far away when Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back was first released to movie theaters. Considered by many to be the greatest movie sequel of all time"

"Spike is inviting its viewers and the trilogy's loyal fans to view a special simulcast of The Empire Strikes Back the same day at 4:00 PM ET on MTV's 44 1/2 foot video board."

"I bring cam-corder. Record show. Nice Day. Wanted to do a live group commentary. Didn't happen.."

"We received this bootleg of the ESB Spike broadcast in Times Square. Since there was no audio, %20 added fourteen fan commentary or ESB 30th anniversary podcasts which were sync'd up at the starting point of the crawl. Since a DVD can only have eight audio tracks, each of the commentaries were mono'd and shifted to the left or right channel. Use this disc to practice your audio shifting and commentary channel switching abilities, while you get an in-depth listen to the public's continued fascination with this movie sequel."
