People Who Haven't Seen Star Wars

There exist people who have never seen any of the Star Wars movies. What order should they see them in? We were dis­cussing this last night, and we decided that it only makes sense to see 4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3. This means you finish in the middle of the story, on the one film without a hero, but seeing them in chrono­log­i­cal order kills the one great rev­e­la­tion in the whole series. Not very satisfying, George.

I quite enjoyed this anti-Lucas rant.
