    I saw Episode 1 at age 12, and I loved it… and I was so disappointed by episodes 2 and 3. So there ARE people who like Episode 1! However, I DO like the original 3 best. I just think 1 is the best of the prequels – I’ve rewatched in later and it definitely holds up for me.

      Episode 1 has a few very stellar moments (Darth Maul fight, for goodness sake). I think I agree that it’s better overall then 2 or 3, which are pretty inexcusably broken.

    Oh and I DID see the originals first – my cousins had the VHS tapes and we watched them a few times a month at least from about age 6 onwards.
