Iím not familiar with the actor that voices Dr Hemlock (Jimmi something) but Iím curious if he speaks that weirdly in real life. Itís like Peter Lorre on downers.

Good to see Howzer again, and the other clones. Thought their ship was cool too. (The Leech!)

I hope the rest of the season doesnít play out as obviously as they are setting it up.

I have a feeling the Bad Batch are walking into a trap designed to get Omega.

Well, that was a bummer.  :(

Guessing next season will be the last. Itís been an enjoyable ride, hope they keep making toys at least.

This season ended pretty strong, and dark.

The beginning of the season was kind of all over the place with no real story arc.  Lots of the episodes were very fluffy and kid oriented. 

By the end of the season stuff was coherent with most of the shows being roughly tied together in to a common plot with some side adventures mixed in that generally added to the overall character development.  Some of the episodes were pretty dark too.

I'm hopeful we get more of the later - coherent, story arcs, and character development in next year's season.  They can skip all the random kid oriented filler as far as I'm concerned.

Overall though I wouldn't recommend this series to anyone other than hardcore Star Wars fans.

Final Season Trailer dropped today! February seems so soon, I thought this would be a lot further out. I'm really excited to see how this all wraps up.

It was crushing to see Tech again.  :'(

Agree.  Looking forward to this new season.  The show has really grown on me.  (Still annoyed we're onto Season 3 and all we have in TVC is Hunter while BS6" has everyone in the BB crew in both Season 1 and Season 2 flavors  ::)).

PREACH!  Representation of the Bad Batch in TVC is just piss-poor.  The series runs from February 21 through May 1.  Would it be too much to ask for some Bad Batch TVC reveals in time for May The Fourth Be With You?

This trailer brought all the feels.  I am wondering if the one mysterious trooper is "zombie Tech".  And the direct involvement of the Emperor in project War Mantle?  That's definitely raising the stakes in this season.  Could we possibly see Vader as well?

Three new episodes dropped today.  I haven't watched them yet, but they're out there.

I watched the three episodes.  Solid stuff, and continuing the trend with Bad Batch to be oriented towards older kids.

I got through two... well, more like 1.5 as I kept nodding off the second episode.  I'll have to rewatch the last half and watch the third one to really form an opinion.  The first episode was pretty good though.

The first three episodes are pretty solid.  Also glad we can finally put the "ThEy'Re GoInG tO ReTcOn ThE SeQuEl TrIlOgY" idea to bed.

I had not been the biggest fan of The Bad Batch over the past couple of years.  But the first three episodes have really drawn me in this season. 

The breadcrumbs for Project Necromancer have been sprinkled throughout a number of stories.  In print there was the Aftermath trilogy as well as the Shadow of the Sith novel.  And itís also been explored in The Mandalorian.  This story arc through TBB just brings it more to the forefront. 

Itís also been interesting to watch Omega and Crosshair.  Their time on Tantiss has taken time, but itís built the two of them up in a way where they discover how much they need each other. 

Oh, and my kid and I both agree - Hemlock is seriously creepy!

He definitely reminds me of a certain real-life someone in looks...
