Star Wars Rebels

Interesting turn of events, and quite frankly, I'm glad to see Filoni involved.

Perhaps an older Ahsoka Tano will appear in this series.

I personally hope they try to take a more series tone with the series, but some how the doubt of that eats away more than the Jar Jar Binks episodes of Clone Wars ever could. The Disney ownership is giving us new movies, the partnership with EA will give us new games; the next couple of years will determine whether or not we actually wanted any of it.

Whoa.

Yeah, it has a shaky start. Booby Trap is... probably the start of the upswing. In and of itself, it's fairly average for TNG. But it's not quite as schlocky/Roddenberryized as "The Bonding."

...Then again, even that quietly subverts the Roddenberry ideal. Early Season 3 is that shift from the hardline, ideological show of human perfection to the TNG people remember fondly. There's bound to be some rocky spots.

Yeah, I just finished watching "The Bonding." It's funny, all of the writers in seasons 1, 2, and 3 say the same thing: "I wrote this really emotional story about the characters and Roddenberry made it about human perfection and technology."

EDIT: Oh, look, from Memory Alpha:
According to Piller, this change was at the behest of Gene Roddenberry, who objected that children in the twenty-fourth century would have a greater acceptance of death.
For the sake of fiction, I hope humanity never achieves Roddenberry's vision.

I apparently was laughing too much--which is quite unusual for me; my response to humor is usually a smile, or a chuckle or snigger at best--and it set off an asthma attack. But it was totally worth it, as Tali would say.

Okay, so... watching the pilot. Caught a late-night run.

Only started about fifteen minutes in. It's... actually, pretty good so far. I've been watching about ten minutes... the actors--besides maybe Ezra--are really great.

EDIT: Hmm. I was gonna bitch about a little insipid "inspirational" dialog... but they chased it with something I didn't quite expect. I'm intrigued.

EDIT 2: That was... interesting. Certainly not bad. I am intrigued. However, the timeslot may be problematic.

See? Expect the worst and you're either right or pleasantly surprised. <_<

The thought had occurre--no, wait. The TCW movie was shitastically awful. So was the first episode of TCW (I believe one professional reviewer aptly described it as, "shit sandwich."). It took to Rookies to get it right.

And this 'professional reviewer' clearly doesn't understand that people would rather see Yoda destroy entire columns of droids than hear painful dialog. The painful dialog came in the other episodes.

No, he's pretty ruthless on the painful dialog. Like the stuff involving Yoda's silly pep talks.

And you will not say mean things about SFDebris.

Compared to the other episodes (where the stupidity generated could only be surpassed by SpongeBob), the first actual episode was decent. I still maintain Hostage Crisis was pretty good. And I will say mean things about what I wish

He makes money doing reviews. That makes him a professional reviewer. Adam Sandler is a professional actor, director, producer, etc. You may not like what he does, but he still makes insane amounts of money on dick and fart jokes.

Even if he doesn't deserve it...

I'm still trying to figure out how her books became so popular. Not to mention how a horrible fanfic of it became likewise. Then I remember the majority of people are not smart. This leads to me worrying about the fate of humanity.

Also, on the bright side... Rebels equalizes the "blasters can't kill heroes" thing. Now they can't kill major villains, either. <_<

Beyond that, though... good so far.

EDIT: GASP! THREEPIO IS EEEEEEEEEEVIIIIIIIIIIIL! And not in the cool way, like Creepio.

But good ep, overall. Kallus is definitely growing on me, as is the crew. I don't even want Space Aladdin jammed into a blender droid anymore!

The ending... could've done without certain bits of dialog. <_<
