Yeah I sure am a self loathing Star Wars fan who hates everything Star Wars related! What with owning multiple copies of every movie across multiple media platforms, nearly 3 decades worth of collectibles in my possession, etc.

You clearly missed my earlier post where I said I enjoyed SOME things on the show, such as the interaction between Obi-Wan and Owen, and Obi-Wan seeing the homeless 501st on Not-Nar Shaddaa. I'm not sure why people like you just can't accept other people criticizing things. It's a TV SHOW. In addition to being enjoyed, it's meant to be criticized, analyzed, etc. And the best part is that it's subjective! I can feel free to say that the forest chase with Flea and Young Leia is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen in Star Wars, and you can feel free to disagree entirely! But people like you for whatever reason won't accept ANY criticism whatsoever, and you can't even defend this show without resorting to personal attacks. Why is that, I wonder?

Good lord do I miss the days where the biggest debate in Star Wars fandom was what color Han's coat is.

There are better TV shows and movies to watch, so I'll go seek those out instead. Just like there are better posters here on JediDefender who aren't pieces of **** like you are, GrandMoffNick. I'll go interact with them instead.

We should also all know that's how SW fans determine what's good and what sucks. Whether it fits our expectations. I think I would have been very bored with your version Diddly.

Thatís all fine with me, man. Frankly I was pretty underwhelmed by what we got with this series, and Iím pretty disappointed in how it ruins a lot of lore of the OT. Maybe by voicing my displeasure, one day the bar for good Star Wars content will be raised. Maybe not. Weíll see.

I'll be honest, I really hated the first half of the series and couldn't even gather the strength to watch episodes 4 and 5... until I finally decided to binge the last 3 episodes last night. I didn't really care for it at all. I guess I was expecting something more simple, like Obi-Wan having to save the Lars family from some Tuskens and having to face the guilt of slaughtering a tribe like Anakin did. Instead we got a ripoff of Jedi: Fallen Order for most of the series, with the added bonus of Obi-Wan coming off as a jerk (leaving the Lars alone after someone with a lightsaber attacks them!) and Bail Organa coming off as the galaxy's biggest idiot (WHAT WAS THAT TRANSMISSION ABOUT LUKE'S LOCATION?!?!?). Oh and Qui Gon looks dumb too, because who knew you could survive a lightsaber stabbing by thinking about revenge?

I guess I need some time to process things

I'm seeing rumors that they're now planning for a second season, so who knows where things go now

Like he couldnít have snuffed out those flames using the Force? I think that ending could have been scripted a little more effectively.

This was so stupid to me. Like, Vader puts the flames out with the Force... then 30 seconds later he can't do it a second time? Just stands there when he could have done a Lightsaber throw or something?

The only thing stupider was that shot of Obi-Wan running away from Vader, to the side behind the hill. Then they cut to Obi-Wan running back to the same spot like he forgot his cell phone, but they pretend it's a different area. I'm pretty sure they didn't even bother moving the camera or changing the background

Ugh, I guess I am the only one who REALLY did not like last nightís episode. I feel like there are two things at odds with each other going on in this show. One, the internal plots and characters and events, but more importantly how all of this activity dovetails with the rest of the movies.

They are doing an ok job with #1 but #2 is really starting to bother me. I wonít go more into it than that for now, but man, so much revisionist stuff happening.

You are not the only one. I'll delve into more spoilery thoughts later, but while I thought the episode was better than 2, it still left me wondering what the writing staff was thinking. It really felt like a first draft script at times.

And are the tax breaks really that much that Disney will forego creativity in favor of shooting in what is obviously California?

Are there any new parts on this Vader? It looks like a repack of the 40AC/2017 #45 Vader to me, but I can't remember little tiny details about the costumes anymore.

I'd be willing to bet money that this mysterious, lost planet winds up being Tatooine  ::)

I had less than zero expectations for this series after the disaster that was Book of Boba Fett, and the first two episode don't suck, but still get a resounding "meh" from me.

Calling it now, the Nightsister is one of the younglings from the beginning, who is somehow obsessed with Kenobi for not saving her or something lame.

The bounty hunters chasing Leia through the forest might be more embarrassing than that Mos Espa speeder chase in Book of Boba Fett. I had to pause it for a few minutes so I could laugh when that green alien ran into the tree branch.

I don't want to sound like a total negative nancy, so here are some things I liked: the meeting with Ben and Owen, the veteran hobo 501st Clone, Kumail being a fake Jedi for money, Flea getting non-RHCP work

I spotted at least 10 Droids 3POs at a Walmart yesterday afternoon. This was near St. Louis. ???

Which city?

Granite City, IL (I've been here for work all week)

There's a LOT of cool stuff coming out soon, like the 20th Anniversary Legends. The Spider-Man 60th Anniversary figures from a few weeks back are awesome too, but I'm passing on most of them for space reasons.

Something weird must be going on because I saw the Target exclusive TVC Droids card 3PO at Walmart yesterday. And there were at least 10 on the pegs, so it wasn't like someone made a return with a swapped barcode.

I wound up canceling my preorder on the Merrick/Erso due to a variety of personal reasons, but Target was putting holds on my card for these for a few weeks too, which I thought was odd if these aren't ready to ship.

I recently traded for a Plo Koon figure, which arrived yesterday. Just need to track down Kit Fisto and a Geonosis Battle Droid and I'll be done with the red/black numbered line
