General of Dokar's Soy-Slaying Anti-Lego Regiment
True & Honest Fan
Pretty much what I've been saying. The show should ditch the whole larger narrative bs like the First Order origin story and just make it a father/son episodic western that doesn't try to connect itself to anything and just focuses on its own world and character arcs rather than the fate of the greater galaxy or tying them in with more important characters. Also in terms of setting, this episode I think is an example of one of those weirder episodes that doesn't know where it stands in continuity (although this time around it seems to have more favor with Disney shit...). Disgustingly enough they reference Canto Blight from TLJ (member TLJ?! Yeah it still happened!) instead of referencing a gambling den people actually like, like Nar Shaddaa or Cloud City or just make up something on the spot. They also show the same creepy six armed monkey from Solo (member Solo?! That still happened to!). But then they go and mention Alzoc III, the old homeworld of the Talz which was retconned out of existence by Filoni Wars and Disney and the Talz homeworld was changed to some ice moon, but now its their homeworld again. The New Republic is pretty much on point with how it used to be. Twi'leks are lewd again. Devaronians are both intimidating and intelligent with red skin instead of green again. But then there's that Zero droid who looks like he's supposed to be an RA-7 but comes off as sort of chinese knockoff like the one in RO.Well, Mandalorian was pretty good again. I didn't know Clancy Brown was going to be in it, so super nice surprise.
Set design was good. It was a break someone out of jail episode...but it was done well.
Rehashing old episodic western stories but giving them the Star Wars dressing actually is pretty fun. As crap as Disney Wars has been, I'm fine with this maybe never telling anything beyond the pair drifting around making a living in the universe. It can be fucked up but if there's not a lot of story beyond that, I don't see it even having to interact with anything beyond its own bubble. That may keep it safe for a while from the SJW shit. Sort of like how Netflix Marvel did minus Jessica Jones.
It is also nice that by Episode 6 we have already seen more classic aliens and new aliens than all of the ST.
Anyways, I think it was the best episode so far.
Enjoy the Gungan joke.
Despite the references to crap like TLJ, the plot was still very much what one should want and expect from old SW, aliens, action and good sets, and it was better than previous episodes but not as good as episode 2, but the show should just stop referencing the new films (also stay the fuck away from Wendig and Marvel shit) and just focus on itself ffs. But we know that's not gonna happen and they still intend to do the FO crap. And no, I didn't pay or watch it on their shitty Disney+ service.
@damian mind sharing the new episode so everyone else can watch and review?
