    “Stop pursuing the small ship in our giant star destroyer to follow the smaller ship with Kenobi on it.”

    5 minutes later.

    “Peace out. I’m going to follow him on my own smaller ship.”

    Everyone on the Star destroyer who could have just kept following the original ship the entire time…

    I mean they let the escape pod go in ANH. Lots of terrible ideas from the empire

    I liked the series. Would watch a season 2.

    Not saying this for anyone here but Star Wars is for kids and some people forget that. From the start it always has paired since Lucas was making it up as he went. That’s why people that get bent out of shape around the lore, crack me up. The lot always has plot holes since it was ad hoc. I think too many people have outgrown Star Wars but don’t want that to be the case. Saw multiple reviews saying the show should have been darker. A show that discussed kids getting murdered and showed their lifeless bodies.

    Darker? My eyeballs disagree, I am already fighting glare enough as is. Had to avoid spoilers and wait until nighttime just to have a chance.

    It's made for kids yet somehow shows like TCW, Rebels, and Madelorian managed to create content that could be equally enjoyed by both kids and adults.

    You mentioned two animated shows that each have over 70 episodes. That’s a lot of runway for a show plus based on history (see DC comics), animated series aren’t really going to be comparable to live action. The Mandalorian was given room to be its own thing but it’s only because it’s very loosely tied to the Skywalker saga that it could get away with some things. Compared to shows like Disney’s Marvel offerings, Kenobi is telling a story that you already know the before and the after so it’s a tougher needle to thread. It’s a classic western story told in 6 episodes. Not perfect or anywhere close but a decent show.

    I get it. All I am saying is that it is possible to create SW content that appeals to kids and adults alike. The excuse that this is a kid's IP holds minimal weight to me.

    Shit, I am thrilled that my kid's favorite show is Bluey because every episode is written for both kids and adults.

    True but I also think most people would hate Star Wars IV-VI if the same story with better effects came out today.

    Glad Obi quit being pathetic

    That’s about all I’ll say as being against this show is equivalent to being a republican(on tmb) andLeia was annoying

    I love Star Wars and always will. This fact doesn’t stop me from still knowing and laughing at the absurd story telling. Star Wars shower thought incoming…..

    Why did reva have to comb through the library at the Jedi temple to discover the connection between bail organs and obi wan? Then Vader is all congratulatory bout it. Wouldn’t Anakin / Vader have already been well aware of the Kenobi / Organa bromance?

    I am not sure how much he knew of the connection between the two. I think that Padme met with those senators privately and I don't know that Anakin was that aware of it, otherwise I would imagine he would have told the emperor about it.

    Even if he did know, it was mentioned previously in here but the emperor couldn't just openly kidnap a senators daughter. Even if he had full control of the empire he still needed the senate to stay in line and kidnaping a senators kid would have been very bad.

    Doing it in the manner that Reva did gave plausible deniability to the empire.

    I would say that the hate for it was so incredibly over the top with extreme cuntiness and that has just been repaid in kind. Especially after the steaming pile of shit that was RoS

    I'm so over the time period. I'm ready to completely move on to something fresh. Hopefully Taika can do it.

    Mandelorian's cheesy comedic relief for kids came via Baby Yoda who is an infinitely better character than young Leia.

    didn't notice it at first either but saw a TikTok about it, most of the time Vader's face has the red reflection, it turns blue when the Anakin part of him is talking. They also blended voices, when Vader was talking it was more James Earl Jones-ish, when it was Anaklin, the voice was more Hayden Christiansen's

    my only knowledge of this show was that vader was in it + people didn't like the third sister girl + people were generally pretty meh about it

    and with those low expectations, i have to say i really liked it! and im not a star wars superfan; i've never read any of the books and only seen some of the cartoons (rebels and the other one). i couldnt make it past ep 1 of the boba fett series, either.

    i watched it over the last two days so maybe it just works better as a binge because you're not stuck with a shitty episode for a week.

    everything that expands on the main characters from the movies was great (and one of the reasons why i really like TLJ). so seeing an "in shape" vader + obi-won working back into force fitness was delightful to me. i didn't really care about leah's story and the bad sister's was convoluted but they were ultimately fine in the end. plenty of "that's pretty dumb" moments, either with what felt like parody scenes or what just didn't make sense (mainly leaving people alive). but the good of this show far outweighed the bad imo.
