    Case in point: the episodes TWIN SUNS and JEDI NIGHT are two of the most stunning and emotionally affecting pieces of MEDIA I've ever watched, never mind just Star Wars.

    AGREED. Honorable mention: Twilight of the Apprentice and the final ep.

    THE BAD BATCH episode 1

    Yeah, this was completely excellent.

    I wasn't expecting to really be pulled in to a show about clone troopers, for the most part, even this group. But I probably should've known better; Dave Filoni rarely, if ever disappoints. I'm in.

    I'm certainly interested... I'm thinking I should probably watch things like Rebels and Clone Wars...


    TCW and REBELS are both excellent. TCW took what the prequels made story-wise/idea wise, and made a phenomenally written 7 season tv show out of it, filling in the gap between ATOC and ROTS. TCW actively makes the prequels BETTER just by dint of fleshing out everything at play in those films. The final 4 episode arc of TCW can actually be watched in tandem with ROTS and it all fits together (I think someone even edited them together on YouTube?).

    And REBELS is stunning bridging material from the Prequels/TCW to the OT-era, and features appearances by people like Leia, and Lando in small roles, but focuses on a smaller group of Rebels who existed just as the Rebellion against the empire is gaining traction in shadowy groups. It also features a young boy who was born the same day as Luke, who grows up and joins that small faction as they fight against the Empire.

    Both shows are very much worth your time if you are in any way interested in SW content, and honestly I think are two of the best pieces of SW media that exist.

    EDIT: You'll also recognize people from MANDO, like Ahsoka, and Bo Katan, both of whom make their first appearances in The Clone Wars.



    I will back QT up on this; I completely agree with his post. I had never paid the animated series much mind up until a couple/few years ago. I think we actually took my daughter to see the Clone Wars animated "movie" in the theater because they introduced the young Ahsoka Tano, who became her favorite character and mine. But I didn't follow up with the rest of the CW series until much later. It seems very daunting to take on if you plan to watch every ep but when this show hits its best, it is more than worth it. The CW series is the story of Ahsoka, in many ways, but I found that it will make you appreciate and even love Anakin. His story gets so much fleshing out that the Anakin of just the prequels is barely a shadow of the real him. And the final 4 eps of the final CW season are literally a 4 part movie, totally intertwined with RotS. Those episodes and what they add to RotS almost completely changed my opinion of that movie. Not to mention one of the greatest lightsaber duels ever, imo, takes place in those final 4 CW eps. And the closing scenes, just wow.


    As to Rebels, I know that some think CW is the better series but I love Rebels just as much. Being able to binge both shows at any pace you want helps erase the irritation when you hit the seemingly "filler" eps, and both shows do have some. But again, the high points of Rebels are so awesome its hard to believe an animated show can pull it off. I was amazed at the emotional impact these shows can produce. I think CW and Rebels add so much to the SW universe that when I talk to or hear others talking SW and they haven't seen the 2 animated series, my brain starts yelling "you have no idea how much more there is! You're missing some of the best content!" I usually try to tell them so, less bluntly, lol.

    I don't know, apparently he can really hold a grudge and he is pissed off. I heard today his agent is the same one Carson Palmer had when he retired a season to get out of Cincinnati back when. He has apparently told a couple teammates he won't be back?

    What did you think of Pittsburgh taking a RB? Great back but don't you need major O line just as much?

    Well I'm an idiot on the Bears statement I made above. Matt Nagy was not the Bears head coach when Trubisky was drafted (2017 draft). Nagy was brought in for the 2018 season and so Trubisky wasn't "his guy" as they like to say...
