I don’t remember a time before I knew that Darth Vader was Luke’s father, in fact even though I watched Empire when I was pretty young I’m fairly sure someone spoiled it for me before I saw the film.
There are so many films I’d love to watch again without knowing what I now know about them.
Interestingly for some reason Luke’s paternal revelation affected me when I was a kid, for some reason I thought that the villain in every children’s TV show was the father of the hero. Megatron was Optimus Primes Father, Skeletor was He-Man’s father etc… That was weird…
