I polled a number of CJers on the releases of 2005 and here are the results:
Revenge of the Sith came out on top with 45.5% of the vote. Serenity made a strong show for second place with 40.9%, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was third with 27.3%.
Best Star Wars Fiction
Matt Stover’s Revenge of the Sith novelization was the clear winner with 81.0%.
Best SW nonfiction/reference
With 66.7%, Dressing a Galaxy was our favorite non-fiction publication.
Best genre TV
I admit I slipped up here, forgetting to include at least two shows (Stargate and Stargate:Atlantis) so the majority vote was a tie between Battlestar Galactica and ‘Other’. D’oh.
This completely unscientific poll is still open for members.
Cry for MIT’s bandwidth instead. Our pals from the the Trilogy Musical Edition have been Slashdotted!

Congratulations to Sir Rogue, Jeff and the entire cast and crew!
Plans are underway for composer Adam Guettel and screenwriter William Goldman to bring “The Princess Bride” to the stage as a musical.
