Yeah, I don't see the justification for a second season here.

I don't think Disney cares about justifications.

I guess we could have six episodes of Qui-Gon teaching Obi-Wan how to become a Force Ghost

you also can't really get the Kenobi-Leia team up again and she was a big spotlight here

maybe it would go like Book of Boba, do a few eps of Kenobi & Krrsantan on Tattooine then quickly shift over to an episode of Leia and an episode of Vader, then come back to finish off the Kenobi-Krrsantan plot for the finale

Binged all of this over the last couple of days and uh, definitely can't relate to the people getting super excited and being moved to tears. Don't want to be cynical but by episode 4 I was feeling incredibly down on this. 5 and 6 were significant improvements but man, a lot of damage was already done by then.

Leia having this huge adventure with Obi-Wan and knowing exactly who he is by itself fucks canon so badly that this show probably straight up wouldn't have been approved in the pre-Disney era, which is really saying something if you know all the whacky shit that was. Like, it's kind of hilarious to me that they had all those lines at the end of the final showdown trying to smooth over minor inconsistencies when they just blasted this gaping plot hole straight through episode 4.

It's crazy to see the polarity of the response to this series. Half the people (including myself) see it as a pile of low-budget trash that shits all over the OT and established canon, yet you have people in this topic saying they were "moved to tears". What is the explanation for people being able to completely ignore the multitude of logic and canon issues this series has to just turn their brains off and "have the feels" as the kids say?

luke making out with his sister

it's 40 years I don't give a shit about a few retcons to give us further enjoyable content, same way I never really cared about Darth later being turned into a general Sith title and Obi-Wan's tattered hermit robes into an official Jedi uniform.

Idk, I think for those of us who liked it, we just reached a point where we knew it wasnt perfect, but we appreciated it for what it was and what it gave us. I mean, I don't think this series was meant for someone to watch it cynically holding a microscope to it.

Take some advice from Palpatine: "Clear your mind. Your letting hatred cloud your vision. Release your attachment to the Original trilogy. It was not without its own issues."

I think that's what he said at the end of the show.

Yeah I'm trying to get to that place and largely succeeding since I do legit think eps 5 and 6 are really solid, but I do maintain there's a difference between calling out actually sloppy writing and holding up a microscope to every new entry. I can see from some of the general discourse I'm now seeing out there that there's a *lot* of the latter happening to this series in particular.

I'm somewhere in the middle, I didn't care for the show as a whole but I did quite enjoy a few scenes here and there (mainly in eps 5/6). At this point that's unfortunately all I can ask from Star Wars...

I dont think pointing out that it makes no goddamn sense for 10 year old Princess Leia to be on a fun kidnapping adventure with her new BFF Obi-Wan Kenobi that she apparently completely forgot about 10 years later in ANH

I still haven't watched episode 6, but my general feeling is that it's a significant improvement compared to Book of Boba Fett (which was legit awful), slightly below season 2 of Mando (which I was kinda lukewarm about) and well below season 1 of Mando (which was great).

Episode 6 could probably move it at or above Mando 2, and there's legitimately no way it could fall to Boba Fett levels because Boba Fett makes Attack of the Clones look like Citizen Kane.

Honestly for the most part it the worst of the star wars shows, but it does give us some of the things we wanted to see.

Some of what Obi-Wan did in exile(stole slices of meat from his legitimate employer)

A glimpse at young Luke and Leia(even if one got almost no screen time)

And a brief cameo of Qui-Gon!!!

And ill just leave it at that. It was at least better than the last trilogy but it would have taken considerable effort to make it that bad.

This is legitimately one of the main reasons I could never get into comic books. No continuity, no logic, just empty/soulless fanservice, just like what Star Wars has become

Explained in the series? Summarize for me, as I couldn't get past episode 3 and have no plans to watch the rest

I'd hate to break it to you but this was at least somewhat true ever since the prequels.

it has stumbles for sure but I think Boba takes worst spot because the structure is just so awkward, 3 episodes poorly jumbling around an uneven flashback-presentday balance then jumping to a entirely different show for two eps before coming back to the finale

it's something that works for a longer series but as a short 6-episode program it just felt poorly focused, even though I absolutely loved some of those side episodes, they kinda just make you think "while why did they make this a Boba show"

I think the moment I realized I was done with the Boba Fett show was when he was searching the sarlacc pit for his armor. When we literally saw him in the very first episode climb out of the pit armor intact and watched it get stolen.

Damn ep6 was freaking fantastic. Great finale to the show. I really enjoyed it overall and I'm glad I'm not one of those people that has to nitpick every little thing and can just sit back and enjoy. The final showdown with Vader was awesome and better than their episode 3 showdown. Was just super hype.

Mando > Obi-Wan > Boba Fett feels like a pretty clear hierarchy for Star Wars shows

I guess you could argue whether Obi-Wan is better than Mando Season 2 but that's about it

tbh I don't really have the memory capability to compare Mando & Obi

Boba & Obi is easy since they released so close and it's just one 6-ep season compared to another

yeah I mean this is something that may apply with me too, I love me my fanservice including stuff others definitely complain about

but yeah again I don't really have a concrete perception of each Mando season, maybe I'll have to do a rewatch or something but it's just like it's own, good, different thing to me

I'm also just often very fine with not ranking things I just enjoy for different reasons, like I got no clue what my MCU ranking is beyond "I really liked these movies and really didn't like Black Widow"

So finally sat down and watched the final episode.

It was... okay. Much like the series as a whole. It just felt like it didn't do enough to connect the two trilogies, and I'm not talking about continuity issues. Just in general, Leia really doesn't undergo any development throughout the series. Obi-Wan really doesn't have much a personality still. Anakin's obsession with Obi-Wan is handwaved rather quickly at the end of the series. Just a whole this series felt... unnecessary? Like Solo. The performances were good but it was in service of story that didn't need to be told and wasn't told particularly well. Hell, why bother killing the Grand Inquisitor early in the series only to bring him back in the second to last episode and do... nothing with him in the finale?

Like the entire story needed to be about how Obi-Wan reached the wise old teacher by A New Hope and the only real hint we get of that is him wandering off with Qui-Gon. Otherwise all I felt I was watching was PT Obi-Wan with better acting and scripting.

The fight between Obi-Wan vs. Vader was fine although it shows the ridiculous power-creep of Force Powers and felt a little too DBZ for me at times.

Like this show wasn't downright painful to watch at times like Boba Fett and bless them for giving Hayden a chance to prove that his awful performances in the PT weren't on him since he was fine in this, but this felt like unrealized potential.

Finished Mandalorian and started Book of Boba Fett. I feel like I understand why people are kinda down on the latter but I was okay with episode 1. Highly doubt I'm going to find the whole series worse than Rise of Skywalker like someone said.

Also am I the only one who feels like Luke's dark robes obliquely foreshadow that he still has a bit of the Dark Side in him?

No it's just because that's what he was wearing in RotJ. And considering how he ended up I don't see where any "dark side foreshadowing" could come into play.

But I believe his black outfit was supposed to represent him finding a balance in both sides of the Force. So in that case yes he would still have some dark side in him.
