    Well I really enjoyed that final episode. The tension was building and building, and delivered. Excellent series. As I have been very positive on this show, if I am going to raise any negatives, maybe once you know what’s happened, is there the rewatch value? Maybe, maybe not? I’m looking forward to a rewatch and picking up bits I missed! But for me this has been an excellent written and acted show, and up there with Rogue One as my favourite thing Disney have done with the franchise. Don’t miss the little clip after the credits! A flash forward that answers one question from earlier in the series!

    Yes, that was a fantastic sequence in his ship! Shows how good this guy is - really enjoyed that and the very subtle nod to Rogue One after Cassian’s phone call, looking off to the horizon. Could be a saber? Not sure if it needs to be as he such an interesting character without that, but definitely feels like setting something up, and he did give the Kyber crystal to Cassian in episode 3.

    Fantastic 10th episode. Not saying much as a number of you are a few behind, but dramatic stuff. Such a great cast acting their socks off. Once again I was left disappointed when the credits rolled. Another damn week to wait!!

    Yep, highlight of the week for me. Thoroughly enjoying this show. I read season 2 starts filming later this month - that is supposed to cover the remaining 4 years to Rogue One.
  5. Yeah - Spidey has been the only one I have gone to the cinema - wasn’t going to miss that one. Have watched all the others on Disney+, so I would agree on an element of burnout with the sheer volume of releases.
  6. Yes, I agree to an extent. Rod for his own back in terms of us having seen Episodes 4-6, so 1-3 needed to be the big cinema release. But in this day and age, there could have been a series or two between films to better explain Dooku’s background, the Syfo Dyas element (never clear in the films), and who Grevious was maybe, plus more besides. The Clone Wars series did a little of nice things in there with explaining how Palp’s gets more and more control slowly but surely - taking over the banks for example. I really liked the six part Tales of the Jedi. Totally agree that the Dooku elements were the best, but enjoyed the final part of Ahsoka’s 3 episodes.
  7. Unknown - whilst it happened between Hartnell and Troughton as well, that was more practical “getting on with the story” as it was the first time. Personally I think it’s to do with the villain of the 60th anniversary specials (Neil Patrick Harris is playing that), who has allowed this to happen (when in reality it’s not to lumber Ncuti (great seeing him in the trailer!) with coming in fresh to the role and handling the 60th all in one go). So potentially at the end of those 3, he changes back into the old clothes? Who knows really. If it helps, the ending wasn’t a surprise here in the UK as it was all over the news a few months back that he was involved. The publicity department released loads of photos of the shooting taking place for next years 3 specials. In other news this week, the BBC has agreed a deal with Disney + to air the show outside of the UK & Ireland, so hopefully that will bring in a bit of cash to make more episodes! https://www.doctorwho.tv/news-and-features/bbc-and-disney-branded-television-join-forces-on-doctor-who
  8. Oh no - sorry if I spoilt anything Tank, I was trying to be fairly vague on posts this week and the links were just the trailers, although maybe since the episode aired, surrounding videos gave something away?

    Well episode 8 just flew by! Fascinating series, thoroughly enjoying it! It feels like an odd jump from him trying to get his mum to leave at the end of ep7 to full on jailed up - all happened so suddenly, but then it’s just emphasising the awful corrupt power of the empire. Genuine confusion and fear on Cassian’s face. The cast gets more and more impressive - lots of familiar faces in the prison and of course Mr Serkis himself relishing the role! Fab use of music as well - very dramatic in places with it cutting out.
  10. Very good final episode! I have not been a fan of the writing from Chibnall, but he ended on a high (lots of fan service which personally I loved, but appreciate it might not be for everyone not born in the ‘70’s!), and Jodie got a very nice send off. Just got to wait to November 2023 now for the the next episodes!!! Too many big gaps!!

    Highlight of the week for me this show. Really gritty, lots of nerves from those daring to hint at being a rebel. Lovely stuff. Ending sequence seemed to jump a bit with Cassian’s new location, but other than that, am enjoying the Empire scenes as well as our heroes, and the strong cast in this ensemble show. Can’t wait to see what comes next, and it’s pleasing we have a timeline laid out. Season 1 covers 1 year, season 2 covers 4 years and finishes at R1. Learning some lessons from the sequel trilogy it seems.
  13. Oh I agree completely! Fantastic set of episodes - can’t believe it’s whizzed by so quickly. Last nights was epic! The queens outrage at learning of the mens plot to put Aegon on the throne regardless, the hunt for him in the city, the lords being made to break their oath and bend the knee or pay the price. And that ending! Should be a fantastic final part!
  14. Did anyone see this video of a GOT style intro for Breaking Bad? Made me smile on a grotty Friday!

    She-Hulk!

    That was fun! Very Blazing Saddles! Insanity and I liked it! Special mention to the opening titles in the style of the classic tv series!
  16. Really enjoyed that - it’s been a great opening season for sure. So much tension, it’s all built up and ready to pop! The family tree is somewhat complex though hey!

    Oh how weird! Totally misremembered that one! Good knowledge chaps.

    That was another nice tense episode - the calm before the storm. Never seen the tie fighter sound be so scarily done in the other film and tv we have seen. Great stuff! Did anyone else think “uh-oh”, when hearing Mon Mothma has a daughter? The father in me was immediately dreading what might happen to her in the future there when she goes full Rebellion. She was a bit of a cow though, so meh! Few mentions of Hosnian Prime (to be known as Starkiller Base in ep 7). Also heard it in episode 4 (well, read it on the subtitles…), as an announcement for a transport ship heading there. Just a coincidence? Cassian’s team now looks to have got their issues resolved and all set for a spicy next episode!
  19. Anymore episodes watched? Still waiting for a channel for it to be aired on in the UK sadly…
  20. Ha ha! Love the volcano comment!
  21. Episode 6 pushed things along nicely - best episode so far by a long way. Be good to see where it goes from here! I think this first season only has 8 episodes if I remember rightly.

    That is a great idea! Having rewatched it, it could fit in very nicely!
  23. Yeah, odd one really. Great cast, looked excellent, but the actual story felt more like a collection of the snippets of the history we had heard through the series. Maybe that works with Christopher being the narrator.. Didn’t quite do it for me. Good casting as I say - Michael Gandolfini did a great job and was eerie to watch with some of the mannerisms of his old man.
  24. Ah man! I just finished a rewatch of The Sopranos on Sunday which I really enjoyed (first time since it originally aired), and planning on watching the film tonight if all goes well with work and stuff. Hoping it’s good! I see Michael Imperioli is in the second series of The White Lotus - might have to give that a watch!

    Yes, really is world setting and showing the tension in these people that are daring to rebel. The risks they face, the paranoia of these new people coming in - do they suspect me? We haven’t really seen this - it’s either a pocket group (Rebels or Bad Batch animations) or the rebellion is already established. Very nice. Great to see the actress playing Mon Mothma back in the role after Rogue One and her deleted scenes from ROTS. And I think we will be due some good action with this upcoming raid - love the idea of the diversion being based on a religious event which is in fact a natural occurrence in the planets orbit. Lots of nice detail like that.
