    Geez louise, I said that in response to whether or not the middle episodes held up on a binge watch. The answer was basically "they aren't as good as the beginning and end of the season and you can skip them if you want."

    in conclusion, give ME a break

    there’s really zero reason to skip them though.

    Everybody's different. I would skip them becuase they were weak plots with some of the worst acting of the show between them.

    But this isn't worth arguing about

    Yes. But since the episodes are short it wasn't too bad.

    Even if the “plot is weak” why in the world skip 1/4 of the episodes

    It was/is still entertaining.

    ep 5 and 6 are basically the difference between this being an 8 episode mini-series and a long movie. I'll take the filler eps. Thanks.

    Thought the series was just ok. But I feel like season two has more potential.

    I wonder why they protected their tweets. I brain automatically goes to SW fans being awful and harassing them for some reason over that.

    501st is awesome. They used to come out in full force for Star Wars weekends at Disney. Like the article said, their armor was better than Disney’s. Hardcore cosplay before it was even called LARPing

    The secretive assignment turned stressful, though, when Pally was informed by the boss just how expensive that Baby Yoda prop is. “I remember the first take that I did when I punched him,” he said. ” They called ‘Cut!’ and Jon, who was watching on a monitor in his office, he came down from this office and said, ‘I just want to let you know that this is the hero Yoda [the main prop used for close-ups] and it costs, like, $5 million. So while I want you to hit it, I just want you to know that.’ Because I think I took a big swing at it. And the next three takes I missed, because I was so nervous.”

    Theres no way a baby yoda prop cost that much unless it can actually use the force.

    No but between the multiple designs and prototypes, working with puppeteers to figure out how to make it all work and look realistic, and it taking two people to operate it the budget can add up.

    Just binged this over the last few days. Thought it was great, surprised anyone would think to skip episodes.

    I think the “side stories” episodes aren’t so bad when you don’t have to wait a week to progress the plot you’re really interested in
