That having been said, I'm enjoying it. The characters are all fairly balanced and so far are doing well - we're obviously starting to get more backstory on each, too, which is great. Glad the female characters are being done well.



Agreed. There are archetypical elements, but overall they're doing a nice job with it. It's still at root a kids' show on Disney, so we get things like Ezra, Chopper and Zeb chasing each other around over pranks and oops a switch gets thrown as a plot device... but it's not overdone and i'm enjoying it.

GATHERING FORCES was a great episode for chaarcter growth with Ezra and Kanan as master and student and some great stuff with the Inquisitor. Jason Isaacs is nailing that role.

SAd that we have to wait now till the new year for the next ep...but at least it sounds like a good one!


Again, the Inquisitor's cred as a baddie is somewhat limited by Disney's inherent limits.. he's just never going to cut anyone's head or even limbs off no matter how fast his lightsaber spins... but within that, he's a nice combo of some of the fun elements from other baddies... Maul's nastiness, Doku's elegance, Vader's implacability.

It just looks more than a little silly that when faced with 5 Stormtroopers with guns, there is the option to.. run away. Amidst the laser shots wildly blazing everywhere but at the target. Kinda takes away any level of threat.

Also, if spacefruit is all it takes to stop a blaster, they should all be wearing improvised fruit armour. (Maybe it bugs me because it reminds me of the debacle with the ewoks!)

Anyway I've only seen a couple of these, I'll try to catch some more though.


Again... it's Disney.

I hope for a REBOOT type development tho'... that show started out light and fluffy for two seasons, and then shit got dark, nasty and serious. There are enough hints that the potential is there.

1. I've heard that rEBELS plans on going to some "dark places" as per Filoni...darker than some of even TCW.

2. I assume you've heard that REBOOT is coming back? It's squeeworthy news for those of us who loved that show.

There's dark and there's dark. The inevitable 'Ezra tempted by the dark side' storyline is no darker than most of what Disney did in FROZEN.
Show me 'Ezra is tempted by the Dark Side, trains with the Inquisitor, cripples his buddy from the Academy, makes the Wookie kid from the premiere into a rug, gets a tattoo of a Twilek dancing girl on his butt and then goes on a three day bender at Jabba2's palace where he meets Asoka who puts him thru rehab that involves serious beatings' and THEN we'll talk.

...or see REBOOT season three where the showrunners effectively killed the lead hero, had the badguys win, promoted the comic relief kid to lead, beat him senseless and THEN things got SERIOUS for the next three seasons.

Speaking of Reboot...

Yep.
I'll believe it when i'm watching it because we've heard this at least twice before, but the notion brings me all kinds of joy.

Ss 1 and 2 haven't aged that well, but 3 and after remain pretty damn awesome to my eyes.

I made plenty of fun of the design when it was first shown, but they did some clever stuff by making the hilt have different modes... He only used the complete circle when he wanted to intimidate the Rebels or throw it. The rest of he time it was a half-bell hilt type thing that made sense the way he held it.

TheForce.net confirmed through Lucasfilm that Yoda will appear in REBELS.

Nice!

No, the last one (which was in Nov) was the last til Jan 5th (I think?). They've taken a mid-season break with all the other TV for some reason.

The scene from Path of the Jedi where Kanan and Ezra open the Jedi outpost was pretty frickin' cool. As was Ezra's lightsaber!

That seems like a dick move...considering you're paying for it. O.o

Almost certainly a rights/exclusivity deal with The CRTC here in Canada. It only sucks to be one ep behind everyone else.

They don't do it to me with Downton, which I also bought a pass for on iTunes, it's avail the same night it airs.

Weirdness.

Disney XD seems to run a week behind in Canada as well. Go figure.

Finally got to watch PATH OF THE JEDI and really, really enjoyed it. Possibly the best ep yet. The Lothal Temple was clever and intuitive. It was cool to see both Kanan and Ezra speak with Yoda for totally different reasons and Yoda dropping the wisdom. The fake Kana VS Inquisitor lightsaber fight was well choreographed.

Did anyone else notice that Ezra reaching up in the darkness of stars to grasp the lightsaber crystal was aping Luke on the poster for A New Hope? They keep doing little things like that, which is awesome.

And yeah, Ezra basically has a Gun Blade Lightsaber. Which is hella cool.

EDIT: Tonight episode has Lando in it. Voiced by Billy Dee and all!
