Enjoyed the new episode. Vader was pretty cool. Show isn't great or good, but it's also not doing any damage to the canon. Last night definitely felt like a Vader appearance from one of the cartoons

Similar to the last time out, while I quite liked Ch 5 story-wise it still managed to have a few beats of comedy bad action.

I am interested to see what Reva finding the holopuck leads to.

I'm a broken record in this thread so I'll save you the in depth critique of part 5. Every negative I've already called out is applicable here as well. The show is simply bad.

There's barely one story to tell. And if season 2 moves forward, it needs to be without Deborah Chow.

We can take him down together. Here's the plan:
I escape and then you take him on one-on-one when he's not even distracted by my escape anymore.

I am high and decided to rewatch Attack if the Clones for the first time in probably a decade for a good laugh. Man what a wonderful train wreck that movie is

Really the only positives are Natalie Portman’s cuteness and John Williams’ score

Obi finale was terrific, I'll watch that last episode when going through rewatches of the movies. I think this series would have been killer as a movie. Probably would have cleaned up at box office too.

Just started Obi Wan. Got through the first 2 episodes. It's ok so far. Just funny how a 10 year old that runs slower than me gets away from everyone, and the 3rd sister lady doesn't seem to be the best of actors, but it's been decent.

I was thinking, for 20 years, is this the first time the clone troopers were actual people in any star wars show?

So funny, I had this same thought as the credits rolled. Would've been much better served with this exact story tightened up to no more than 2.5 hours.

The finale is better than the preceding episodes, sure, but the series as a whole still detracts from ANH rather than enhancing it like Rogue One. It also suffers from the same baffling character/story choices as the other chapters.
Obi Wan had a chance to kill Vader and strike a major blow to the Empire and instead he's just like, "welp, see ya later!"
Did it also seem incredibly dark to anyone else? Visually dark, not tonally dark. Like I legit had trouble seeing some of the action. What was the point of this series? It didn't add anything that we didn't already know from the existing films.

This series has been epic......ally frustrating. More or less very meh with a couple lol howler moments, and then there have been a small handful of moments that where amazing.
The second saber battle w Vader..........omfg, that hit hard, so much more powerful than Mustafar imo. Lucas' hallmark as a director is 'at least 25% too much', and Chow rightly dialed the encounter back to bare bones so the spectacle didn't overwhelm the moment. Every fight scene, be it fists or weapons, has its own story to tell. Lucas went with "LOOK AT HOW AMAZING VFX HAVE GOTTEN" as his guiding light. But the reason we care about these characters is because of the 1:1 relationship of these brothers in arms and spirit, and everyone involved here nailed it. To me it was sort of the only real moment in the series that overcame the fact that the audience knows more than the characters.

Agree with tif here. This series reminded me a lot of the animated shows right down to the action. All in all, it took until the last episode to actually feel big and I think that's on the cinematography. That last saber battle was incredible. I got choked up a couple times during the finale as well. Could be wrong here, but during the Luke scenes in the finale, I kept thinking that Luke said something along the lines in ep4 about nothing exciting happens here and then last night.

Yeah, involving Luke at all was dumb (I mean, Leia for that matter too).

Also I'm sure this was already brought up, but in Ep 5, when Obi says Luke is their only hope, and then Yoda says no there is another, and it cuts right to Leia, the implication isn't that Obi knew about her but she wasn't force sensitive, it's that he didn't know about her at all. At least, that's the way it's shot.

Granted, the end of ep 3 would kind of ruin that anyway.

And I always interpreted the message at the beginning of Ep 4 was that Leia had heard of Obi through rebel legends, but never actually met him.
