Lando's not a system. He's a man.

4 Episodes
Original Run: 2 Eps, 11/21/15 - 11/28/15
Playoffs Run: 2 Eps, 4/16/16 - 4/23/16

EPISODE ONE (11/21/15)

SUMMARY:  Lando Calrissian, who tells us how hard it is being the only black man in the universe, is the baddest mofo in Cloud City, but he's upset that Han Solo is going to be marrying Princess Leia, as he's powerfully attracted to her. Meanwhile, R2-D2 is secretly in love with C-3P0; when she finally confesses her love, they decide to get married - but droid marriage is only legal in some systems. Lando, who supports any kind of marriage (and is into "Wookie Cookie"), takes his mind off his own romantic woes when he meets the gorgeous Princess Mayla... but she's got another, more sinister agenda, and Threepio and Artoo are just the droids she's been looking for.

EPISODE TWO (11/28/15)

SUMMARY: Princess Mayla and her Imperial Girls, who are against droid marriage, abduct Threepio and Artoo, intending to reprogram them; they are aided by a clone of Emperor Palpatine (who was a clone himself). However, the Imperial Girls and the Palpatine clone all find Lando too sexy to resist, and they end up freeing him and fighting at his side. Mayla, however, is impervious to Lando's charms, because she's an "L" word - a LANDO-HATER!

EPISODE THREE (4/16/16) - PLAYOFFS ROUND 1!

SUMMARY: Luke Skywalker drops by, singing his disbelief that he's a Jedi master! His presence, however, reminds Lando of his desire for Luke's sister, Princess Leia, who is with Lando's best friend, Han Solo. After Luke leaves, the Imperial Girls return, aiming their blasters at Lando and bent on revenge. For what, we don't know yet, 'cause that's the cliffhanger moment.

EPISODE FOUR (4/23/16) - PLAYOFFS ROUND 2!

SUMMARY: Lando is visited by Han Solo (played by the same non-union understudy who played Luke Skywalker last week), and the two are beset by a female clone of Darth Vader, who calls out Lando for his sexist ways; she's upset that he gets lionized for seducing women around the galaxy, when she'd be called a slut if she did the same thing. Lando realizes that to get out of this, he's going to have to make a deal with the devil...
