I was a bit behind on this and hearing how good it was from my mates, have caught up on series 2 and just finished the current series 3 this morning!
Bloody love this show! No holds barred - loads of fun!
Can’t wait to see this!
Loved that game! Made my top 10 also!
Agree completely. Trying to solve a prob that wasn’t there - thinking that it was confusing that Vader just suddenly appears on the Super Star Destroyer.
Worked perfectly how it was and just is odd having outtakes from the start of ROTJ.
Lots of fun being had by RTD in terms of promotion seeing them filming over the last month or so. Won’t spoil anything, but you can Google search it if you want! Can’t wait!
For those of us who have been fans for yonks, the team are back with their great podcast series on the notorious missing episodes, with part 2 of their look into the epic 1st Doctor story The Dalek Master Plan. Really good series of videos I’d highly recommend. Very knowledgeable chaps.
Link to their site is here:
Fantastic finish to season 4! Epic stuff and really impressed how they wove all the groups together in an exciting confrontation.
Bring on the final season!!

You’re not the only person to note this, there’s been debate over the years that her voice was redubbed at some point. Some people say it was for the first rerelease before ESB came out, some say in the early 90s THX remaster.
Oh really? Ah thanks goodness! Thought I was going nuts!
But of all the things to change!
But the one that annoys me is that with all the changes made since the SE’s were released in ‘97, they never cleaned up the issue in ESB where after Luke has kicked Vader off the carbon freezing chamber platform and then jumps down, you can see Mark stand straight back up again.
Surely that could have been tidied up by now?
I know what you mean though - there are really small things I remember differently from the countless times I watched the film in the ‘80s before the big changes came.
One really random one is when Owen is asking Beru if Luke took those 2 new droids with him when he started work early. Her reply in my head is more of a chuckle version of “I think so” rather than the more emotionless answer we have. Hard to explain that properly but hope it made sense!
Has to be my memory getting it wrong as there’s no reason to change that sort of stuff!
Whoa! Really? Hadn’t read about this. Loved the original when it first came out - dip in every now and again as it’s on permanent cycle at the mo on a couple of channels in the UK.
Fingers crossed it’s ok. Tough act to follow Bakula & Stockwell for sure!

I pushed through the rest of Season 2. Overall I’m still with my thought above that the actors have been let down, but at the same time the stuff with the writing is a love/hate for me rather than just a ‘wtf this all sucks’ sorta criticism. The story is fine, I can dig it, it’s like a story for a novel really. The execution of the story in a Star Trek series setting was not successful for me. There are things I like with this story, with these characters, but I am certain to never revisit these seasons. Maybe that means something about the series, maybe that just means something about where I am. I dunno.
Yes, this sums it up for me also. Story was fine to watch through for series 2, but I know I will never watch it again in the future.
Caught this last night now it has dropped on Disney +. Lots to unpick!
Bit slow to get going, first 20 or so was a lot of narrative before it really kicked in. The fall through the Multiverse was fun, but kind of reminiscent of that Family Guy episode with some elements.
Once they got to the Earth 838 (Question - if they mapped the multiverse, why designate themselves as that number and not 1? But I digress…), there was some fun scenes with Strange & Chavez with the tables turning so that she is the experienced person explaining the rules.
Illuminati sequence as great fun! Black Bolt backfiring, Carter doing “that” Captain America line, and of course Xavier making a decent appearance.
Totally get Wanda’s motivations - she wants her kids back - even if they didn’t properly exist before. How far would you go if you already were super powerful?
Agree with above comments - if you didn’t watch “WandaVision” / “What If…”, much harder to follow. And definitely scarier elements at the end for the younger kids.
All in all, fun way to spend a Friday night. If I’d paid for the cinema, probably would have been disappointed.

Oddly enough there was one thing that I wanted a literal line for. I was hoping that during the various conversations Obi Wan had with Leia about her parents throughout the series, that Leia once would mention that she’s had visions or dreams of her mother. And then Obi Wan would tell her (or maybe she herself says her dad, Bail, had told her) that her mother was watching over her in her dreams or something like that.
Yes, I was hoping for that also - thought sure it would come in that final chat on Alderaan.
Absolutely loved that! Epic final episode - superb dual, lovely moments with Leia and the trademark “Hello there!” to Luke! Qui-Gon for heavens sake! Brilliant!
The wife asked to watch ANH straight after - who am I to refuse?
The dialogue scenes with Vader and Obi-Wan - fantastic! And the split voice between HC and JEJ… magic!
As to Obi-Wan walking away, he can’t kill his friend. That still rings true from ROTS and walking away instead of ending his suffering. Seeing his face and hearing his voice brought that all back. No complaints here.
I do agree on the timing of the scenes - could have been edited differently to give Kenobi a bit more time to get to Tatooine, but the fact she brought him back to the Homestead instead of an encounter in the dune sea is fine enough with me.
Yep, can’t argue with your points there, but for me, knowing the fates of the characters hasn’t spoiled my enjoyment at all. This series has been very enjoyable to watch, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it all ends up in a few hours time.
A mad thought crossed my mind on my second watch of episode 5, and that was what if they went an Infinities route and did something different to really shock… Won’t happen and I know a lot on here don’t like that series of stories or the alternate reality idea, but…
Anyway, looking forward to more Mando era stuff and Andor looks like a lot of potential also. After that, let’s get away from the Skywalker era for some fresh and unrestricted stories.
Absolutely brilliant! Took my time watching the 7 episodes due to the final 2 dropping in July.
Excellent series - big main cast and splitting them up worked so well.
The reveal at the end of Ep 7 was excellently done and Ep 4 was also a massive highlight with a tense time!
Looking forward to these final 2 episodes!
Probably quite old, but just seen this today and it made me laugh!
Nice one - thanks for the tips! Good to have it confirmed that it was improved upon. I enjoyed it at release for what it was, so will revisit that when I get a chance!
Ah man - shame this isn’t coming to the PlayStation.
Out of interest, did No Mans Sky improve with later updates? I got it at release and enjoyed playing it, but it was a bit light initially. Meant to go back to it, but other things got in the way.
Shame about Tala I thought - liked her character and there was a nice bond with Kenobi.
About 2 mins before it happened, I allowed myself to think that maybe, just maybe, the 2 of them could have some time together back in exile on Tatooine before she passes away prior to ANH…
Then BOOM! Dead. I blame myself…

The more shows/films they make, the worse I feel for Qui Gon. He seems to be the only one who can’t survive a wound to the gut.
Agreed! Has she got 2 stomachs as well??? ;-)
Rumours are the final episode could be a beefy length.. pure speculation based on the cinema timings for the series and a bit of math being done here:
Also, anyone spot that the final “I” in the title page is his lightsaber? Can’t believe I didn’t notice it!
It was quite early when he first arrived in the base - he also saw a Jedi cloak in a second box if I remember correctly. Very short sequence.
Well - a fair bit to digest in episode 5. I think how much I liked this one is dependant on what happens in episode 6 and a key development.
But that aside, the opening shot will make a lot of you smile I think! It was clear what was coming!
Better Call Saul
Holy moly - that was superb! I love a show where I just can’t guess how the episode will end! So many ways that could have played out and now we just have 5 episodes left to see where Jimmy/Saul/Gene ends up!
Love this show!
