Yeah what Matt said.  I think a rebellion on Ryloth may become a bigger arc and Ryloth becoming an early alliance alligned group is old Legends stuff so thatís kinda neat to see it fleshing out. 

As always I wish I just had figures.

Seems like Chamís Clone buddy is gonna maybe turn?  Itíll be interesting to see how Clones react to fighting against friends who arenít really encompassed in their Order66 programming.  Maybe that doesnít impact them as much since itís not a Jedi.  Would be possibly why Bail was let go?🤔

That was odd that The Bad Batch had such a small role, but I didn't mind it.  I haven't found the Bad Batch stories all that great, so mixing it up with some origin story stuff is fine by me.

I find the things going on around the Bad Batch is more interesting than what is directly happening to them most of the time.
This is the way.

Great episode this past week. Kamino has always fascinated me, so to see all the inner workings was really cool I thought. Bittersweet too obviously.

Speaking of figures, I am now dying for 6Ē Pykes. They were in my top 5 Most Wanted list for the Clone Wars line, and it was so enjoyable to see them again recently.

I'm really enjoying this show overall.  There are some episodes that are better than others, but that is to be expected.

We have gotten a good view of how the Empire took control of the Galaxy both separatist worlds like Raxxus and Republic worlds like Ryloth.

We're currently seeing how the clones are being phased out.  Still more to come on that one.

We've also gotten some more hints about what happens on Exegol setting up the Rise of Skywalker.  For the record, I don't want a full explanation of Clone Palpatine...just hints here and there.  Enough to keep the Fandom Menace flipping out that Disney has no plans to retcon the ST.   :D

I enjoy that trolling thought. 

Rubbing out more bad batch is welcome.  The show is pretty good...  didnít even start off terribly slow.  Loving the early TKs.  Itís solid stuff.

Without even having seen the season finale, it has been a really solid first season for The Bad Batch.  The series has weaved a number of storylines together, from the prequels through the Clone Wars, and from there onto Rebel, the OT and those little seeds for the sequel trilogy.  It has also given a more complete picture of the underworld and how it would function during the Imperial era.

One thing that really caught my attention on Friday's episode?  The use of some of the Kamino music cues from the soundtrack for Attack Of The Clones.  It added to the atmosphere in a big way.   And seeing the not so bright and shiny details of Tipoca city was interesting too - especially seeing the lab where Clone Force 99 and Omega were created.

The twist involving Crosshair was well done.  The callback to the mirrors that he used in Clone Wars on Skako Minor required some attention to detail.  I think Crosshair taking out those droids in order to save the rest of the Bad Batch was intended to give viewers some false hop that he would reject the Empire.  But then to learn that he had his inhibitor chip removed, and that he really does view the Empire as the best option was eye opening, but not completely surprising.
