    First 3 episodes available now. First episode is double length.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    The first kinda grew on me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,761 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Looks like it's a slow enough start setting up the characters, but I've learned from Clone Wars and Rebels to give these series time.
    I did enjoy the episodes though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Just caught up. It's a good opening alright. Put together, they feel like a mini-tv-film :)

    The story is decent enough. Yer man is annoying so.. plenty of room to grow I guess :)

    The main stand out is the animation. Wow, it's like top notch Anime level stuff. It really brings the atmosphere.

    Aaaaahh, first episode where I wasn't left feeling yer man is annoying :)

    Dunno. I'm still not sold on him. He reminds me of Peter in Spider-Man Homecomig wanting Tony's approval.
    If it moves away from him wanting to be a spy and just let it happen naturally, it will be better.

    This week's episode
    So the last surviving people from a planet no one seems to know called Tehar, which just so happens to be an anagram of Earth

    Seen it, all 5 episodes on Torrents and its dire poor characters, soapy animation. We need Feloni at the helm and get rid of Kathleen Kennedy


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,761 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    But Filoni is over this, the same as Rebels. They need to do something to get it moving. The other series were set in different locations. This one restricted itself to a single place, for some reason

    Filoni isnt on the job or it was cobbled together over night (3 months). I havent seen anything this bad since the infamous Christmas special.

    Could see this weeks development a mile away! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,761 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Hopefully it leads to something interesting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,063 ✭✭✭✭ wp_rathead


    i quite like the animation
    While Rebels was pretty "Lothal" heavy it still let us expand and explore the Galaxy..
    Keeping them confined to this Fuel station seems bit of an anchor story wise
    I was hooked on Rebels by episode 5 whereas I've still not completely bought into this
    I'm sticking with it ofcourse but really needs to up the ante

    I've just finished reading the book Phasma (not sure if this is set before or after it) but I would like to see Cardinal or Vi Moradi at some point

    There it is. This place doesn't stand much of a chance of holding out for long.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,761 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Is it too much to hope that everything is building to something drastic happening that either turns the platform into a rebel base or it gets destroyed?

    We're a good bit in now and I still couldn't name most of the characters


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    I can't see them stopping the 1st Order taking the base... BUT.. maybe that's gonna mean we'll see one hell of a Fight! X-Wings and Aces!

    Oh, TM that name! :)

    Sounds like a game!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,063 ✭✭✭✭ wp_rathead


    Can tell that it is slowly building to something, i really hope the pay off is worth it though
    honestly, I think that Jar Jar was less annoying than Kaz


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Hrmmm.. tie-in for episode IX maybe?

    Guessing the Fireball is gonna be all souped up when Kaz gets back :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,063 ✭✭✭✭ wp_rathead


    Easily the best episode so far
    Shows that Poe risking lives of his team mates isn't just a one off like in start of Last Jedi where he got most of his squadron killed

    Sorry my series guide app, didn't pick up on these, so sorry for delayed posting.








    Welcome to 2019!

    Ha! No need to apologise for keeping us up to date. I never even think about these until I see them posted here.

    Like Star Trek, I do like these shorts to give us something during breaks. Though this is actually a lot.

    Looks like it's back this weekend


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Just caught up.. I get the feeling we might get to see a BIG space battle. Unlikely season 1 though.


    Agree about the Holiday Special Shorts corkie, thanks for posting them! They were hilarious! :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    16: Jeez the teddy...

    I guess we're just before The Force Awakens now that Poe is on his way to Jakku

    Maybe the big space battle I was guessing about is actually the two from The Last Jedi


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,063 ✭✭✭✭ wp_rathead


    The Core Problem was easily the best episode of the season for me
    Really starting to gather momentum now
    While I'll miss BB-8 I look forward to more CB-23


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,761 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Nice to see something starting to happen.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,821 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Feels ominous. 3 episodes left this season.
