    Okay the final two episodes redeemed this show for me lol. Still has alot of issues ofcourse but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the final two episodes and was genuinely surprised watching the final episode.

    Last episode was the best of the lot.

    But it still just has that problem of being a prequel. No tension at all during what would normally be tense scenes, if it wasn't a prequel. Vader fighting Kenobi and Reva hunting down Luke. Reva is the only one there who might have died.

    I'll be surprised if they don't make a second season.

    Just watched the last episode. Thought it was mostly dugshite along with the rest of the series. Another massive missed opportunity for Star Wars.

    I thought one good moment was when the helmet got smashed. They handled the mesh of Anakin and Vader in that moment quite well - better than I expected.

    I don't know what the new Star Wars obsession with rocks is all about but they could be doing with toning it down. It's very fan-fictiony.

    Also don't understand why Obi-Wan spared Vader again. Maybe I missed it but does he just walk away because of emotions? If so that's just really poor and lazy writing, especially when the message from the fight was Anakin is dead and it was Vader that killed him.

    I think all the pieces are back in their original place, so they can make a season two. I'm convinced if they give it to good writers and producers they can make something special. The potential is enormous, the execution is abysmal.

    Disney+ in general has an issue with that. It's a technical problem of some sort IMO.

    Thought it was the best episode by far, I’m conflicted on a season 2. Obviously it would be great to see Ewan McGregor playing him again but it also wrapped it up nicely here

    Have jsut finished sitting through the whole series... and, while it has it's moments and upsides, it's a dog with a lot of fleas - but that is the case with pretty much everything that SW has donesince the original trilogy, but most especially since Disney took over, with Rogue One remaining the only half decent (yet ironically completely unnecessary) addition to the whole SW saga.

    To start with, how lazy is it that they chose to reuse the exact same trope as The Mandalorian (solo grumpy old man has to look after baby/youngster), with the writing & dialogue are pretty * cringeworthy at times.

    And the sad fact is, there is no chance they are going to stop any time soon.

    Loved the first 2 episodes.

    Great to see how they get the proper characters back.

    I love Star Wars though so I'm easily pleased
