CBS (Sunday, Feb. 26, 8 p.m. ET)

On the small screen, the Death Star looks like a basketball, the Wookie like Bonzo and R2D2 like a Cuisinart. It won't be the same with commercial interruptions and without popcorn in your hand. But CBS tries to make up for it with a 22-minute special before the movie: Mark (Luke Skywalker) Hamill shows how it was made. Star Wars is one of the fun movies of all time. Against the first—and best—part of Lace, it's a hard choice to make.
