Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith is the movie your annoying friend points to when you mention how much you didn’t like the prequels. They say this despite this scene:

But finally, someone actually fixed Episode III, so that it’s watchable. You may remember about ten years ago, when the movie hit DVD, people were sharing a clip of the movie overdubbed in Mandarin with the English subtitles on, resulting in this in the Do Not Want meme.

Well, a YouTuber has decided to go back and overdub the whole movie with those subtitles, resulting in the official way we all have to watch Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, or how it will forever be known Star War The Third Gathers: Backstroke of the West.

So now Anakin’s classic line “From my point of view the Jedi are evil” is now

From “the Closet Summit” to “Birdie Sanders,” the 2016 election was the never-ending nightmare that seems like it never ended. But it’s still worth a closer look, especially when Marco Rubio made allegations about not being able to trust people with small hands (among other things about small hands — man, 2016 really was awful).

Anyway, Seth Meyers recapped it all in his “Closer Look” segment. 12 months of horror in eight minutes of comedy. There are all those great things you forgot about, especially this:

Maybe it wasn’t all bad. Wait, yes, it was.

The 1980s were a dangerous time for many of us, but it was especially dangerous if you were from a specific demographic: A sitcom mother.

Go ahead, think about it. Have you ever noticed that while you were watching reruns of Diff’rent Strokes or Full House that there was never a mom around? To paraphrase a 90s sitcom, what’s the deal with that?

This was no accident. There was a reason why so many sitcoms were about single fathers dealing with multiple children, and the After Hours team at Cracked took a quick look at why “audiences tuned in week after week to laugh at grieving families and abandoned children?”

In this video, Cracked uncovers the reason that the 80s were such a bad time to be a sitcom mom, or a sit-mom, as I’ll refer to them. Some reasons include: the success of the first example, Diff’rent Strokes led to copycats; the removal of a show’s moral center (the mother) would result in “dad’s burning dinners and uncomfortably buying bras,” as well as unaccompanied minors playing in a dump and getting stuck in a fridge. But ultimately, they discover that these shows were a response to rising divorce rates and the breakdown of the American nuclear family.

Check out the video and learn a little something about how the 80s were a golden age of abandoned kids and idiot fathers.
