~111k atm.

What makes it all sweeter is how great that #clonewarssaved trailer did.

For the focus of the show, I could do without the racing and just focus on the other stuff with the First Order.

Galan007
Adding depth to, and expanding upon, the happenings between RotJ and TFA is really all this show should be doing, imo. If it at least has a decent story that helps fill in the gaps during that time, it will be more tolerable to watch(shoddy animation notwithstanding.)

Unfortunately, I'm not even expecting that. The trailer makes it extremely hard to be optimistic for this. ermm

Yeesss...good, good. Give into the pessimistic and your journey towards disliking the show will be complete!

First 3 episodes are out.

Tremendous crap.

Good, good. Use your hateful feelings. Also how bad?

Galan007
Worse than I expected... And I expected it to be terrible.

Is it even worse than the Holiday Special?

Galan007
Same level. But at least the Holiday Special had the original cast, ffs. ermm

This show is bad... Like really, really bad... Embarrassingly bad. I'll be shocked if most SW fans can even sit through the first 5 minutes of the first episode.


And I just saw that this season will have 20 episodes. TWENTY. Jesus.

I might have to watch an episode, just due to the fact it turned you...probably the most optimistic guy of this new SW....away and into disliking it so much and even worse you have no expectations to begin with!

Were you able to stomach all 3 episodes? Or did you not even get passed the 1?

Galan007
I got through all of the first episode, but I'm pretty sure I blacked out after the first 10mins. Super cringey... I don't even want to attempt watching any others at this point.

Maybe there'll be some people out there who can stomach this better than me. Dunno how anyone could actually enjoy it, but ya never know I guess.

Zenwolf

Galan007
Can't wait to hear what you think. haw-som

juggernaut74
What channel is this show on?

Galan007
Basically any Disney platform.

...or you can DL it from any torrent site.

How far after Return of the Jedi does this take place?

Ok watched the first episode....and that will be my last one. What...the....****?...Sorry, but anything about this is just...no.

I already hate that green guy who's name I can't remember because I don't care. Kaz should have died in the very first few minutes against the TIE, everything after that...hell even that was a bore, the whole episode was such a complete borefest!

StiltmanFTW
So, unwatchable?

Figures.

Darth Thor
Lets bet on the number of episodes before they bring in Ashoka or OT characters to convince people to keep watching.

Audience scores can be tampered. If critics would watch this over Venom then thats fine. But I will not trust their recommendations again.

StiltmanFTW
When you click "Top critics", tomatometer decreases to 50% big grin

Darth Thor
Even that is too high as it means Half the Top Critics like this!

StiltmanFTW
RT is not very reliable when it comes to TV shows/cartoons.

They only review the first episode, afaik.

Total Warrior
Did you watch the first episodes? Is it good?

DarthSkywalker0
No and no.

First episode is terrible, so I'm not gonna watch anymore.

Also why is it these shows keep bringing in old EU concepts and just....not handling them well? Rebels did it and it seems The Resistance did it with that red TIE Interceptor, which I'm pretty sure is suppose to be akin to a Royal Guard TIE Interceptor from the old EU.

Yeah....great showing for this supposed elite Preatorian Guard?? In that he couldn't take out 3 pilots who should be inferior, it's just.....ugh.

Darth Thor
^ Okay im sure this show is garbage. But you gotta let the old eu go dude when giving new material a shot.

Zenwolf

Darth Thor
Saw it. Hard to sit through. Just has it on in the background.

But I dunno, maybe kids would like it. Thats clearly the target here.

It was made clear that aside from Poe none of them were a match for him. Kaz was clearly going to die before Poe came giving the other 2 an opportunity to escape.

So this would have been the last thing on my mind had you not brought it up.

Sure, but it seemed to me that the chase had been going on for some time before Poe got involved.

But alright, plot protection there, I'll take it.

Tzeentch
I'm about 5 minutes in to episode 1 and it does seem pretty garbage.

I like that the dude voicing Poe sounds like he went through puberty 3 times compared to Oscar Isaac.

Darth Thor
^ Urm, that dude was Oscar Isaac.

Prob cause he no care. Plus I doubt he's gonna be a series regular, maybe re-occurring.

Also from what I've read, the RT score was stolen/fake so...ha...they had to steal/fake a score just to make it look good...when it's not.

Darth Thor
Ratings were ridiculously low for a pilot. 0.33million viewers which would have been average for Rebels final season. Rebels first season averaged around a million viewers which was already much lower than TCW in its prime (granted TCW was on a bigger network).

Zenwolf
What else could possibly go wrong?

Galan007
A few sites are raving over this series like it's the best SW material since ESB, which blows me away because I can't even imagine how you could tolerate(let alone actually enjoy) the series at this point. It's just f*cking garbage... And I'm more lenient/optimistic towards Disney canon than most.

I can only imagine that the sites giving this shitshow good reviews have been paid off(or threatened) by Disney in some way.

Or Disney people making said accounts and leaving good reviews so they don't look bad.

Also best since ESB? No....no....that's what was said also about TLJ....yeah...no.

Darth Thor
Its solely for kids. So none of us are going to enjoy it.

But yeah those sites/reviews (which I assume are not written by 4year olds) are clearly doing Disneys bidding.

Galan007
Which seems really stupid to me, because young children aren't even the franchise's target demographic/audience.

Why dump all this money into a project that only kids who still write in crayon can enjoy? Filoni knows better.

Galan007
That being said, I will say that Phasma at least looks pretty good in this:

https://i.imgur.com/42cXk9q.jpg

And they have Gwendoline Christie voicing her, which is neat I guess.


...Not that it's enough to make the show enjoyable on any level, mind you. ermm

victreebelvictr
I tried watching it...

I stopped after episode 3 I think...

It was that bad...

One Big Mob
I watched the first episode... meh.

Are they all 40 minutes though or did I just watch a bunch cobbled together? That seems lengthy for a cartoon where nothing happens.

victreebelvictr
Most of the episodes I watched was them trying to fly to some planet while talking about things which made it dramatic.

Galan007

The first episode is supposed to be an hour long with commercials(45ish minutes without them.) The other episodes are the standard 30mins with commercials(20ish minutes without them.)

One Big Mob
Seems pretty long for a barely asian looking kid to fit in, but oh well. That really doesn't bring in new viewers.

I guess I'll check out the other episodes, but... that was a horrible introduction that could have easily fit into your standard 22 min episode. The other ones should be more tolerable... maybe? I hate that I'm a big Star Wars kick recently.



But yeah, I was watching that and halfway through I wondered why it didn't end yet. 43 minutes. Imagine my surprise when they didn't do anything big with the other half.

Galan007
I got through 2 episodes before I threw in the towel. Doubt I'll watch anymore unless I hear that something good actually happens.

A bit off-topic (link me to the right thread if there is one), but have you heard of Chuck Wendig?

Galan007
Yeah, he wrote the Aftermath trilogy, and is slated to write the upcoming Shadow of Vader comic mini.

ares834
He was also fired recently.

Galan007
laughing out loud

Just saw that. They should have never hired him in the first place, tbh.

StiltmanFTW
Getting fired over f*cking tweets is pretty ridiculous, though.

Bautista was right, this is just the beginning.

ares834
I agree.

However, his Star Wars stories were utter garbage. So while I can't say I agree with why they fired him, I am happy that he is gone.

Galan007
So episode 5 was crap overall. #Shocker

But Kylo Ren being the leader of the FO army was mentioned. At least that sets the stage for the reported appearances Kylo will be making in this from time to time.

srug

Darth Thor
^ They will have to bring in more major players. Probably more Phasma at first. But atm this doesnt even seem like Star Wars to me.

RealistRacism
Literally none of the newly created characters in any Disney Star Wars media are interesting.

Zenwolf
Galan, why are you torturing yourself? Also it seems the positive reviews for the show are fake heh, or vast majority....or all.

StiltmanFTW
Galan and pain are old friends.

I vomited after the teaser trailer, I choose to torture myself in different ways. F*ck this.

Its his style to start off more kiddish in the first season then go a bit darker for every season after.

Think of TCWs first 2 seasons compared to the latter ones.

That said, not only has he gone way overboard with the kiddish tone on this (Disneys influence im guessing), but its simply not an interesting story or set of characters. And it just doesnt even feel like Star Wars.

My guess is they will have to bring in Kylo Ren, Ahsoka and others to keep this show alive and save them the embarrassment of cancelling it after one season.

|King Joker|

Darth Thor
^ But its his show. So the joke is on him.

That said, im pretty sure Ahsoka would whoop Kylo Ren, so not sure what there would be for her to do here.

|King Joker|
I don't know, I just find it hard to believe he really has the reigns. I bet he's concentrating more on the revival of The Clone Wars.
