  1. The opening theme also hit me, though I thought it was just kinda funny. I got very similar feels a couple weeks ago watching the reunion seasons of the first two casts of The Real World.
  2. Be sure to check out the sequel and Freaky.
  3. That’s basically the gist of the EU and the cartoons where in a galaxy full of people, the same dozen characters continue to meet by chance… usually on Tattooine.
  4. Oh well. More proof I could have written better prequels.
  5. That footage watching scene is the one I am thinking of that I can’t remember clearly— especially because there was an alt version of it.
  6. So I've been wracking my brain on what I would pitch if I was in the Obi-Wan writer's room to make the Vader interactions unique, while keeping Vader the cold machine he is supposed to be. Again, showing anything less than that from him is a misstep. That means, there has to be something unique about the point of view of Vader being this way. And I think I have it. So in ROTS, Palpatine refers to Anakin as Vader before he's in the suit once, when sending him to Mustafar to kill of the Seperatist leadership. We know how that ends. But... follow me here... we don't know if Ob
  7. When I was in London I eschewed anything planned or guided. I just put boots to ground, googled up the stuff I knew I wanted to see, and tried to walk as much as possible to just be entrenched in the city.
  8. You can Tetris those things pretty good! Just remember-- heavy furniture on the bottom, the kids on top.
  9. I don’t love all the inconsistencies with technology, uniforms, continuity, established character ages, and despite top notch effects, 40 years have passed and TWOK still has the best looking Enterprise in space effects… But despite those things, this show is an utter joy so far. Too soon to say, but it feels like the best spin off since DS9.

    Picard

    That was one of the worst seasons of Trek ever. Every episode an awful inditement of how poorly the writers know Trek.
  11. This is amazing! I had no idea!
  12. She must be feeling the need for speed… and homoeroticsm.
  13. The space between decks stuff is a MEGAHATE for me.
  14. I think people are just ready for an unapologetic good time old school summer movie that isn’t bogged down in decades of IP continuity.
  15. This is what happens when you take a Very compacted, broad strokes mythic tale and make into a serialized never-ending story. This is why I never felt like the EU worked. Star Wars was never meant for nuanced, slow paced stories. I disagree with you that it’s the only thing to mine with Vader, but you’re not wrong in that he’ll feel one note if they don’t explore something. They should give him something new.
  16. It’s not a narrative problem for Obi-Wan to know or not know, it would be a significant change to a well established part of the overall mythos. Vader’s redemption comes when he saves Luke in ROTJ. Finding out he did the same thing in a lesser form 10 years previous is a hat on a hat and does nothing to add to the story, and if anything, weakens the significance of Luke’s role later. It’s a terrible idea that undercuts the overall saga for the sake of forcing a moment in a new story inserted into the timeline… to which I’d give 50/50 odds of it happening.
  17. Honestly, it ruined the cartoon for me. Introducing time travel to Star Wars was a wrong turn for me. Almost as bad as Bringing Palpatine back. I love Ahsoka, but for all the great ways Dave Filoni has added to the mythos, his inability to kill his darlings for the sake of continuity has done some damage.
  18. Hahaha IMPECCABLE!!! When Vader showed up on Rebels he had zero sympathy for Ahsoka and more or less killed her (save for Ezra pulling her forward through time to rescue her.)
  19. Also, was reading some recaps and was reminded that in BB s4 Gus said “All the Salamancas are dead.” (Save for Hector of course). That doesn’t bode well for Lalo showing up in the Gene years. Also, Lalo And Jimmy seem to be at an end, most of Lalo’s story is now centered on him and Gus. That makes me think the Gene years will be focused on Kim and Jimmy/Saul/Gene.
  20. It’s already pushing it to see Vader and Obi-Wan meet at this stage, to make Vader at all redeemable is just too contrary.
  21. I think the Sandpiper money is coming and it’s Saul’s nest egg that lets him be as established as he is in BB, have that mansion, and be able to afford Robert Forster’s vacuum service.
  22. Having just rewatched the whole run, it really does shift once Chuck dies tonally. I remember the first season feeling like WAIT THIS ISN'T SAUL WHAT IS HAPPENING, and then realized it was a slow burn. When he first started wearing the colorful suits to get himself fired from Davis and Main it locked in how slow of a burn it would be. I've honestly never seen a prequel manage to do so well as giving us really in depth and new stuff for characters we know the fate of. Saul and Mike's histories are now so complex and interesting. I do recall one plot point in BB, that Saul only then realize
  23. I went to my ten year and it was half great and half upsetting. I skipped the 20 because by then FB had me informed. Mostly I want to go because now I’m so much cooler than most of them.
