TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)
« on: March 24, 2016, 09:16 PM »
Yeah since Lapti Nek is annexed from Star Wars forever, why not sneak it in as a fan wank?  I'd have appreciated it.  Instead, just a lame scene that ultimately meant nothing.

Anyway, yeah...  I was talking to a buddy earlier, and I find I like the little stuff in the show more than the show itself.  The mini turrets in Season one, the graffiti and propaganda posters, new ship designs, homages to old EU (even if small), and even just boxes...  or the floating forklift box loader things.  Or the Yavin Hangar Sled Ladders even.

And I dig Chopper...  I'm easy when it comes to Chopper humor.  Best design of the show IMO was taking the old R2 design and tacking on an R5-ish head so you had something new and interesting to look at, and the personality has been fun.  I really actually enjoyed the episode last week where he just went off to steal something because he's a dick.  And I've enjoyed the Droid he picked up from the Empire and that he appears to be sticking with the show, even if in a background capacity. 

But next week...  Ugh.  This guy, again.  You're killing me.  You're not killing him, ever, apparently, but you're really killing me.

Hah I thought I was the only one wondering about the pilot.  But hey I'm sure pilots are a dime a dozen for the Rebels!

Seriously though that's one of those things about this show.  And add in Zeb's music...  Would it have been hard to get something that had a Cantina or Laptinek sound to it?  No?  So 80's bubblegum rock?  Ok. ::)

I'm sure I'll watch cuz it's Star Wars and all but man I want to like it more.  I like parts of it but not all.  I actually enjoyed the Chopper ep, but only because I felt it moved things along. He meets a new guy they'll have on now, new guy helps them with getting the base, blah blah blah. 

But like this week I have someone on twitter challenging my opinion and going with the same ole same ole "it's character driven and you don't understand..." implication.  No, I understand, but last night was really only ONE thing at the end that had to do with developing the characters at all and it's something most of us feel is obvious I'm sure.

I never thought TCW was perfect by any means but it had more hits than misses.  Rebels I can't say is the same.  It feels like so much is just dull filler, and like this whole season there has been one "mystery" and nothing else to it but that filler.  The mystery gets brought up but then just fades away to more filler.  *shrugs*

While I liked seeing the McQuarrie Spiders...  Man this show is slow and dull sometimes.  Last night being one of those times.  The end scene sets up an obvious character connection and plot, but beyond that, this one was nothing but Spider fights.  If you watched recon after, they try to imply other stuff but really none of it moved the show along.

Next week looks to have more umph to it, but I was never a fan of having this character back, so that alone kind of spurs me on the upcoming ep. :(

I want to like Rebels more, but it's like its a chore some weeks.

The sex in the show is kinda goofy when you think about it but it's worse in the comic I think.  Relationships are kind of necessary for story but I think Darryl's storyline is the most believable in the situation.  Too busy to get busy.  You've got **** to kill and stink to accumulate.

Getting laid probably is not that high on the importance chart...  Except Glenn.  The apocalypse was the best thing to happen to that guy.

Dumbest thing on the show any single person has done was Abraham breaking up with her.  Clearly THAT is something nobody believes would happen.

I can but the rpg stuff and impossible head shots more.

Talking Dead has a few bright spots but every week is a chore to sit through the filler to get to the behind the scenes things, or the preview for next week.

Not the best ep this season but ok...  Didn't see the doc dying, but Hilltop has one so now they have that as leverage too.

Eugene...  Wow.  Uh.  Hmmm.

Bill said exactly what Matty was expressing.  Look at Marcus and Sallah at least.  Very unnecessary and nothing like their characters in Raiders.  At the beginning Marcus sort of plays a role like he does in Raiders but once he is integrated into the adventure later he becomes pathetic comic relief.  Take he and Sallah out, and you lose nothing and gain a lot.

I like TLC, personally, but yeah it's way weaker compared to ToD and RotLA.  For me I only hate Skull at this point and won't watch it.  Even it's figures kind of blow.

Comic relief in Indy should be somewhat limited.  Indy and his dad was plenty sufficient in TLC but they took it a step too far by dumbing down two secondary characters for no reason.

One of the more fun episodes and had a lot of action aside from the main story.  While I can't say I like all the characters, I do dig Chopper a lot.

Hah.

What was left at the satellite place was kind of absurd.  It was like all they had was mitary grade stuff and a spear, haha.  No hunting rifles?  Lever action?  I don't think I've seen a .22 or a small gauge shotgun yet since this began yet you'd think these would be everywhere.  Hell, I know I have 3 .22's here.  Nobody has one anywhere on this show though.  Not as cool I guess. :(

Why was that group from last night out by themselves?  And then two more guys out and about?  Negans group seems better thought out than all this.

Fortunately for Ricks crew everyone who knows about them in Negans army is dead, unless that random car that popped up behind the bikers turns out to be more than a mistake on the show.

Sorry you had to put your dog down Rob.  I know that feeling all too well, and you just have to take your time.  Still think about so many pets I've had over the years. :(
