I didn't really like Mandalorian. Bowed out after s1. Skipped boba fett because it looked more of the same.

But this I will watch. Probably give it a try for 3 or 4 episodes.

Not too bad on the first 2 eps. Music was not your typical SW themes... Didnt think they would go there in terms of getting into the storyline of the Skywalker saga. I thought Obi Wan would be on his own quest mostly. But I liked what they did. Looking forward to the rest and the recent news about a Vader series that has been rumored.

Founder series seem to have non glossy finishes compared to the Persona. Don't like glossy speakers for HT use due to reflections.

Is it me but when I tried the paradigms at the audio shop they had plenty of power but sounded flat... I like clarity and detail.

I have old Paradigm's. I wish I could afford Founders

I'm running Studio 100 V4.. I love them. Timeless sound and super accurate with an ATI 1502 powering then.

Got them second hand? I found an old review of them by Andrew Robinson and it was 2499 at the time which is pretty close to the 2599 of the current Founder 100F. Either way good for you, it's way more speaker than I can afford (plus don't have the space for floor standers or an avr that can power a pair). Enjoy the show tonight!

Yep. My Uncle bought them many years ago when they were brand new .. ran them for years, and he upgraded to Focal Kana's last year. I was stoked to get my hands on them. The Studio 100 V4 resale is particularly high since they were one of the best versions of the 5. I got a great price since it was family.

Yeah kinda. What threw me off were the foot chase scenes with her where the adult actors faked being stopped by non existent obstacles when she was clearly in arms reach. It felt like they were just play chasing

started watching this. other than the main movies + Solo/Rogue, this is the only star wars content im going through. never watched Boba Fett, or any of the cartoons (even though i mostly hear good things) or read the books.

yeah leia is somewhat of a weak link but i think they had to make like that so that she would be somewhat memorable and stand out.

the soundtrack is FREAKING AMAZING. I find myself enjoying the music quite a bit, often more than what was happening on screen.

sorry if super obvious question, I'm guessing Reva is meant to be one of the kids who gets away when the temple is under attack from Order 66?

Started watching last night. I'm a super cynical old Star Wars fan, but I'm actually enjoying this somewhat. I did go into with really low expectations though.

The story they went with for this is actually pretty interesting and makes sense to me as to what may have been going on with Obi-Wan during that time. Also I definitely prefer Disney doing stories like this that actually connect to the existing Star Wars movie plots, rather than creating completely new and unnecessary stories like the sequel trilogy. It lets them do some interesting ret-conning to fill in more backstory about what was going on and I find that interesting.

I think the only irritating thing so far is the forced comedy. Man, can any show do comedy right anymore? Whenever they try it in Star Wars now it just falls flat and breaks the immersion completely. But yeah not bad so far, will continue watching.

Why do they always make Jedi battles so underwhelming. I don’t get it. They had an opportunity to make a great battle in episode 3 but it fell flat on its face. So bad.

That’s why a woman should not direct action sequences because they usually suck ass at it.

Why would it be a good Jedi battle when Obi-Wan hasn't been in the game for 10 years and Vader is the Frankenstein monster.

One is like oh ****, I need to hit the gym and the other one is put together with janky Lieutenant Dan magic legs.

The best part of the show is the intimate moments between characters. Owen was fantastic and ep. 3 discussion with Leia was great too.

Good stuff.

That wasn’t the point but sure. I did not complain about the concept. I complained about how stupid the whole thing was. Like Vader EDITED FOR SPOILERS Wtf?

Similarly, the saber sequences were poorly shot with Vader not even showing half the level of hate that he had in episode 3.

I don’t have an issue with the story but the crappy views, how it was shot and how it was acted plus the scape goat escape.

The Kenobi character gets similar reductive treatment in this show, as Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi. Kenobi is weak, undeceive, apathetic, while Vader is already built up Sith tyrant in his peak power, throwing a major wrench in the both characters' progression arcs between Episode 3 and 4.

Haven't watched anything yet, but really how else would you describe the last surviving Jedi Knight trying to keep a low profile on a backwater planet? Kenobi may be good, but Vader has killed a LOT of Jedi to get us to this place.

If anything, Kenobi knew he was never going to best Vader in the original trilogies, he was buying time. If he could have won, he should have done it then and there. Alec Guiness just didn't show him exerting and losing as badly as he probably should have.
