  1. "If I can change, and he can change, then everyone can change...he gets it." "I do." One of the other parts that made me laugh was "No mercy, MFer." I enjoyed this season, but it does seem like this show has run its course. Daniel finally got what he was after since Season 1 (shutting down Cobra Kai). Johnny has become a better person, and he and Daniel even seem to be good friends now. Silver was exposed for who he really is and is now in jail. All the kids quit Cobra Kai at the end. Most (if not all) of the rivalries between the students have been settled. Mike Barnes got a painting to sell so he can get back his furniture store. I just don't see where they can go from here. I guess they could always make something up. For example, after Kreese breaks out, he teams up with Kim Da-Eun to restart Cobra Kai. Or Silver's attorneys manage to get him out of jail. But these things would seem even more contrived than the last season was. I was honestly surprised Kreese broke out. I really thought the writers were going to let him die and make him somehwat a tragic character being killed as he was seeking to redeem himself. That is what I thought they were going for especially after he talked with the prison psychologist. But nope...a swipe of the key card and a little jello for fake blood....and BAM! Instant prison break. I also thought the writers were going to let Chozen die after his fight with Silver, but I was glad to see him make it through. There were a lot of cool moments throughout all 5 seasons especially seeing old rivals (Johnny, Chozen, Barnes) become allies, but I think this show should quit while it's still ahead.
  2. I watched the first episode. It was good enough to keep me interested. I wonder how they will tie this show in with the older show. For example, why did Ben decide to suddenly leap without testing it more? Is he looking for Sam? What does he hope to find (and/or learn)? He left a message on Addison's phone but it did not explain anything. I understand they won't just give everything away in the first episode, but hopefully we will get more details before the end of the first season. I was also interested in why Al's daughter seems to be against the current quantum leap team.
  3. Does Porkins like to eat at Perkins? *ahem* .... uh...sorry...I'll think of a better dumb question... Would Luke still have gone to face Vader on Bespin if Obi-Wan accidentally let the secret slip out on Dagobah? "Luke, I don't want to lose you to the Emperor the way I lost Anakin...um...uh....I mean Vader."
  4. If C3PO had his memory erased, then how would he know he had his memory erased? Where did Han learn how to speak Wookiee? Or does he just think he can talk to and understand Chewbacca the same way people communicate with their pet dogs?
  5. Is anyone interested in Season 2 of the Bad Batch?
  6. The absolute worst dialogue change was in ESB where after Luke got away from Vader, Darth Vader used to say "Bring my shuttle." Now, he says, "Alert my Star Destroyer yada yada yada..." What were they thinking?
  7. I thought that is pretty much what Obi-Wan said in this scene: BTW, watching this now makes me think: Obi-Wan in the PT says he cannot kill Anakin and refused to do so on Mustafar...but then he tries to guilt Luke into doing it after Luke said he cannot kill his own father. What a hypocrite.
  8. So that's where Obi-Wan learned it. I may be missing something, but it seems like from the first two episodes of this miniseries, this is the first time Bail and Obi-Wan have spoken since Episode III. I can think of maybe two explanations: 1. Worrrying about Leia, it just wasn't on Bail's mind to fill Obi-Wan in on the details about Vader. 2. Does Bail even know that Anakin is Vader? I know Obi-Wan and Yoda know via the events of Episode III, but was Bail ever let in on this secret?
  9. I would assume Bail would have heard about Vader rather than Obi-Wan (after the events of Episode III). Obi-Wan seemed to lead a pretty disconnected life hiding out on Tatooine. He buried his lightsaber along with Anakin's and tried not to use the Force or intervene in any conflicts. I would assume that Obi-Wan probably did not leave Tatooine after Episode III until Bail asks him to help rescue Leia. By the way, the girl who played Leia in this series reminded me more of Princess Leia in the OT than Padme in the PT. I guess part of it was her dialogue and the other part might have been the ESB-style outfit she was wearing on Alderaan. Maybe Reva got to watch the same recording that Obi-Wan and Yoda watched in Episode III. She seemed to be pretty resourceful and she knew that Obi-Wan was close to Bail (which is the reason why she decided to have Leia taken to flush Obi-Wan out of hiding). By the way, did anyone else want to yell at the camerman during the scene on Tatooine where that one Jedi found Obi-Wan but Obi-Wan kept insisting he was "Ben"? The camera was shaking so much it was giving me a headache.
  10. I think Obi-Wan was partly lying in ANH to manipulate Luke into becoming a Jedi. Obi-Wan also said Luke's father wanted him to have the lightsaber when he was old enough. I don't believe there was ever Anakin saying something like this in the prequels (and definitely not to Obi-Wan). After all, Anakin was trying to hide the fact that he and Padme were going to have a baby. Maybe they should film another edition of ROTS with the following dialogue: Obi-Wan: "You were my brother, Anakin. I loved you....uh...btw, this may not be the best time to ask...but...um...if your kid with Padme survives, would you want him to have this? (holds up Anakin's lightsaber)" Anakin: "I HATE YOU!" Obi-Wan: "Ummmm....I'll take that as a yes."
  11. Braves 2022 season so far:
  12. Has anyone heard anything about if Obi-Wan is supposed to fight with Vader in this series? I have mixed emotions about that. On one hand, it would be cool to see. On the other hand, it would seem to water down the impact of their duel in A New Hope (being the first time they have faced each other since ROTS). Also, Vader's line about the last time they met he was the learner would seem kind of odd.
  13. Luke looks like he is practicing his podracing moves.
  14. Are you talking about Boba Fett?
  15. I am guessing this is probably the reason. When Luke defeated Vader on Death Star II and chopped off Vader's hand, Luke looked at his gloved hand then Vader's missing hand. He was probably thinking in that moment he was too much like Vader, wanted to avoid repeating the same mistakes as Vader, and thus turned down the Emperor's request to destroy Vader.
  16. I undertsand. I mean, that dead horse has been beaten so much even Arby's wouldn't take it. All I was saying was that from the scene at the end of Mando S2, it didn't seem to me that Luke was insisting Grogu give up any attachments until Luke explicitly said so in Book of Boba Fett. If that is the direction they want to take it, I guess that is cool. I am just interested in Luke's journey. He is obviously a central character in all of the Star Wars saga. So, I am interested in the little things/events/decisions along the way from Luke being an eternal optimist in the OT to being a broken-down grumpy old fart in the ST.
  17. Funny you should mention that. There was an Arena Football League team called the Washington Commandos. I would have liked that name better. This could have been their mascot:
  18. I watched that scene again, and it does not seem that anything in there is implying Grogu must never have any contact with Mando again. Mando even said to Grogu he will see Grogu again and Luke does not object. However, in Book of Boba Fett, Luke is making it very clear that Grogu must not have any connection with Mando again. Also, isn't Luke breaking an old Jedi rule about teaching students older than children? Grogu seems like a baby but we see a flashback of him (maybe at the Jedi temple with clone troopers killing Jedi) and Luke says a little part of Grogu's life is like a lifetime for others. Maybe we will learn more in coming episodes of Boba Fett and Mando, but for now I have no idea what Luke is thinking. Grogu - Training at older age (against PT Jedi rules); giving up attachments (in line with PT Jedi rules) https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Ben_Solo I know this link is not considered canon, but can anyone help out fill in the canon details? Ben Solo - Training beginning at 10 years old (against PT Jedi rules - Anakin was about the same age); Did Luke force Ben do give up attachments to Han and Leia?
  19. I am thinking more about that attachment thing. Luke took Ben Solo to train at the new Jedi Academy. Did he force Ben to give up his attachment to Han and Leia? If not, what a sniveling weaselly hypocrite Luke was.
  20. Was this the first time Luke and Ahsoka met (on screen)? I liked her line saying Luke was just like his father. Luke smiled at this which indicates they know who each other are (i.e. Ahsoka knows Luke is Anakin's son and Luke knows Ahsoka was Anakin's padawan). I am curious as to how they first met and what was said during their first meeting. Maybe just "Hi, I'm Ahsoka. I was your dad's padawan."
  21. This episode busted out a whole lot of characters. R2-D2, Luke Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Grogu, Mando, Cobb Vanth, Cad Bane ....and...uh....oh yeah...Boba Fett was in this one too. I like how Luke was trying to seem like the cooler parent by offering Yoda's lightsaber. However, I was surprised Luke was asking Grogu to give up his attachment to Mando. I thought Luke was not interested in continuing that part of the Jedi. Or maybe wherever I read that it is now considered non-canon (can't remember if it was a comic book or novel or maybe I heard that in an interview with maybe George Lucas).
  22. I liked the space city at the beginning of the episode (just like a Stanford torus). Also, best part of this episode: “Wizard.”
