  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. Strong 4th episode. Really setting the scene well and having the story spread out of different planets helps a lot. 
    Great cast, a lot of familiar faces, even in small roles like Mon Mothma’s driver.

    Only downside was when the credits rolled as I could have watched a good deal more.

  6. It is entertaining and I have been surprised how much fun I have had watching it!

    Doesn’t take itself too seriously, lots of nice touches, for example before it aired, I disliked the subtitle of “Attorney at Law”, but each week they have changed that to suit the circumstances!

    Good fun, and an underlying subplot of pepper after her powers which will be good to see fleshed out.

  7. I have to agree with all the comments here. It’s not what I expected, but I will stubbornly be watching it each week and keeping my fingers crossed we see improvements.

    Very odd take being done when considering how much Tolkien wrote about this world. It just doesn’t feel like the same place at all at present.

  8. Just stumbled upon this the other day - Part 2 of the remake, officially titled “Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth”, has a release date of winter 2023.

    Info on news article link below which also has a trailer on the page:


    Very much looking forward to this! But as that’s a while off, we have something else to tide us over that’s released in December this year.
    It’s a remake of the prequel to FF7 called Crisis Core, and the makers have said this is very much in the a compliment to the FF7 remake trilogy!

    Article and trailer in link below. Already pre-ordered this! 


  9. Agreed - with the Empire’s mining accident more or less destroying his home (still not quite sure how the kids survive - guess like Covid they have stronger resistance?), that works for me.

  10. Yes, definitely felt like a 3 act first episode the way it all played out.

    Pleased we are off to a great start - flashbacks (Lord of the Flies meets Max Max 3), nicely cutting in with the current storyline, and not shying away from showing the Cassian we saw at the start of Rogue One - willing to do what it takes to get the job done.

    Very gritty and interesting - time absolutely flew by watching these. Be interesting to see where the sister storyline takes us as he now moves away from his adopted family & friends to his destiny with the rebellion. Lovely stuff.


  11. Ah now on that bit they did say early on that Valkyrie’s flying horse (probably has a proper name but I’m not sure), could travel via the bifrost, but not accurately, so they use Stormbringer. Suddenly it’s quite accurate at the end hey… ;-)

    A quirky film - felt like he was a bit tied down by having to have the Guardians there at the start, and wanting to get rid of them asap. 
    Bale & Portman were excellent, but overall was a let down as a film and that’s with me considering Ragnarok to still be my favourite of the MCU so far, so that was a real shame.

  12. Yep, with you there Tank. Only time I have felt the proper magic since Endgame was in Spider-Man: No Way Home which was a special event film for sure.

    Just needs the “McGuffin” to be revealed, outside of it being just general Multiverse stuff.

    Otherwise, it’s just fun stuff on at the mo. But could do with that little kick!

  13. An excellent 10 minute preview on d+ that dropped last week. And they revealed it’s 3 episodes that land on release day as well, so that will be great to get stuck into!

    Can’t wait!

  14. Interesting one! Our snake in the grass has been outed by the king (via his daughter of course!), and so what will that bring for that character now?

    Enjoying this show a lot - has hit the ground running. I’ve deliberately. It read the stories from this era, so anything I know is vague memories from references made in GoT itself. So it’s fascinating seeing how it’s all going. 

  15. Ah - classic! And they revisited Jimmy and his brother in the 5th season where “the evil leaper” is trying to mess up what Sam originally put right.

    Hope the new series finds a channel to air on here in the UK! Otherwise I will be absent from this chat for a bit!

  16. Did anyone watch the “making of” that dropped last week? Caught it last night and really enjoyed it! Everyone is clearly having lots of fun and it was great seeing Ewan and Hayden reminiscing.

    Some interviews with Alec Guinness I don’t recall seeing before, although I’m sure I must have at some point.

    Very nice!

  17. Agreed - Madisynn was great fun! Had to double check the credits as she kind of looked like Elizabeth Olsen I thought - just me?
    Enjoying this show! Loads of new stuff on at the mo, so it’s nice having a program with shorter episodes!
