IIRC,  few years back it was said that sales in boy's toys/action figure market were slumping and Hasbro told their teams to maximize profits. Add to that, increased labour costs in China  and things suck now.

The Future of the Force.

"A sith lord tried to do the same thing during the clone wars, but we stopped him."

Yeah, he's also had 15 years to do the same thing with probably no one to stop him. That's a lot of dead babies or something.

Good Guys Are Dumb moments: Two times I said "you shoulda killed that inquisitor". Once Fifth brother was knocked out and on the ground and Kanan could've decaptitate him. Ahsoka had 7th Sister at her mercy.  Yeah, yeah, Jedi don't's a kid's show...whatever.

Bad guys are needlessly evil moment: Implied slicing up the ship's passengers. What did that accomplish? No witnesses...who cares, the Empire runs the show!

Bad guys are dumb moment: Leaving the derelict transport in space with life support and the old woman (very youthful looking thanks to CGI) alive.  So again, what was the point of 5th Brotha killing those people.

What was the Watto's flying in the desert?


Just HOW much stuff are they setting up for future films?

Finn actually looks intriguing, though also kinda chunky.

Unkar Plutt is a vending/gaming repairman, and fixes the claw game in the local mall. 

There, his EU backstory is complete.

Did Sheryl Crowe used to ride with him? Has he been down that hyperspace lane more than twice? Is he high on intellectualism?

LOTR Cave Troll appears!  :o

Some trailers revealing too much because there's so much money invested they have to show the goods.

It was out of character them to stop...remember last time we saw them they fought off an ambush that wasn't even intended for them.

Now, they act like fools?

We are at the "characters acting stupid just to serve the plot" stage.

Under the cowl, Affleck's hair is perfect.

IIRC, from the review at Jeditemplearchives says
the droid socket is changed for Chooper (platform for his short legs, guess that means other astromechs won't fit?), the back end is closed, the cockpit inside redesigned, probably to accommodate 5 POA figures.

Now I can buy every Hero Masher Admiral Ackbar they have in stock.

I like how they made Maul with the spider legs...for 3 3/4? NO. For some silly line that will be gone in a couple of years, he's in the second wave!

It's all a fake out and like 6 people die in the February episode.

Abe, Sasha are gunned down and Daryl runs off in the woods, wounded again. Gabriel, Jessie and her kids are ripped apart.
That's all before the opening credits. LOL.

After that, the Wolf and the doctor die, then Carol wakes up and slits Morgan's throat. Then she demands Tara, Rosita and Eugene toss his body to the hungry walkers to cover up her actions.

Zombie Deanna defies her brainless state and leads the herd away to a new zombie community.

Rick remembers his promise to Deanna about looking after her son, only to discover his severed head being used for hacky sack by some walkers.

By the end of the episode Rick and Michonne are doing the nasty.  Not gutting more zombies, the other nasty.

Got nothing for ya. Underwhelming entirely.

Tara nor Rosita were willing to take the shot? Knowing what kind of people the Wolves are? In fact those two and Eugene almost might as well not have been in the episode.

Glenn got to shame Enid and then look over a wall. Wow.

The crib fake out...boooo! (It may have been the only effective bit in the episode actually...even if it was ridiculous that Deanna later summons enough strength to go out fighting.)

"Mom? Mom?"
She's gonna have to stop and break his neck, I guess.

I was wrong, I thought the first half of the season would cover a mere two days, now it's more than half the season.

I even hated the 2 minute preview for the mid-season premiere. Stopping. Getting out of the truck....really? REALLY?

Admiral was rocking those 70's sideburns.  8)

Kind of a small crew for Sato's ship...3 guys and Ezra?

Imperial Engineers (?) with the gunner helmet...another EU thing.
Rex not being able to see a thing in the stormtrooper helmet, yet he wore clone trooper helmets.  :P

Chopper still kicking butt...killing hundreds.  :D
