    I'm enjoying the show a lot, but I also feel like I know why, and a lot of that is because this is something I am 1000% predisposed to like.

    One thing this show is killing me with, is it's "first take" energy. Like Obi-Wan is just standing there during a wide shot, on a break from filming, but they are actually shooting the show. :funny:

    It really falls into the problem with prequels where you know where its headed and the show does almost nothing in giving the viewer any new insight. This would have been a lot more manageable if it was a tight movie where things are moving much faster.

    Now we know how Vader meant that. He didn’t actually say what Reva wanted, just let her come to the wrong conclusion, like how the Emperor promised the separatists in ROTS that he was sending Vader to "take care" of them.

    I really wish Ewan would stop playing Obi-wan like he's Halston (great NFLX series btw).

    Haha the entire time I'm thinking, my dude if you have to leave a message use coded language or encrypt it. It's not like he thought Obi-Wan was on vacation at the beach.

    For whatever reason, the interaction between Obi and Anakin in the flashback reminded me of this scene.

    The grand inquisitor wishes he had half the swagger of Klaus.

    I was about to say the same thing. If only he was half as entertaining as Nomi, he would totally eclipse everyone else...

    :D

    I just hope, that Vader doesn’t visit Tatooine again. Not because he doesn’t like sand, but also for honoring Shmi‘s sacrifice, that Anakin never has to visit that planet again.
    Also it won’t make much sense, if Vader never tried to find Kenobi on Tatooine again the following 10 years

    This scene alone is better then most things disney has done with the SW franchise. Great sound design also.

    Well, that's your opinion.
    My opinion is that that scene is one of the worst scenes in the absolutely worst film of the entire saga.

    I don't actually want this to turn into some sort of war, but I'm so sick and tired of seeing this whole "Disney is ruining Star Wars!" thing. It's exhausting.

    Thats okay. There are cool things in the SW stuff from Disney. But i dont know, it also lacks something most of the time, cant put my finger on it.

    I went into Obi Wan without expectations.

    I wasn't anticipating the idea of a Kenobi show or film , and I didn't build up ideas for what I wanted to see and what I felt needed to be in it.
    So I went in cold in alot of ways

    For me, the show has largely worked and has been enjoyable.

    It's still flawed, but I really don't have the dislike or disappointment with it that others have.
    I've liked it as much as I liked Mandalorian.

    I've been pretty critical of some of the creative choices made in the Disney era, but I definitely consider this among the better outputs of theirs so far.

    Yeah, after Blowba Fett and the abysmal prequels, my expectations for this show were pretty much in the cellar. But overall I’ve enjoyed it. It has plenty of flaws but I’m enjoying it a lot more than any of Ewan’s previous appearances as Obi-Wan.

    It’s sad that Disney couldn’t do this but these talented group of people can

    I've enjoyed moments Obi Wan, but overall... I may have been expecting too much from it. Episode 5 has been the only one I would say I enjoyed throughout most of it, but it still had some head scratching moments...

    One thing George Lucas did, is explore new planets, had different ship designs, new species in every film. Disney just seems to retread a lot of stuff... and it gets old after awhile. I'm tired of sand planets lol. Seems like there's more humans than aliens in the galaxy now too.

    George also would push new technology... I don't think Lucasfilm really does that as much now (correct me if I'm wrong)

    I can't wait until they completely move away from the Skywalker saga honestly lol.

    And AOTC was always the weakest in the Lucas films to me... but I'd take that over some of the new Star Wars... (I do love that scene shared above, seeing Coruscant like that was so awesome.)
