Just checking in again, after about 350 pages, to confirm that Tlj is a garbage movie by any standard, and a borderline crime to destroy two iconic movie characters that way...

Then I see what's being discussed here and I must ask, where would one go to watch good Star Wars stuff outside the main movies? Never seen anything else, but would be interested in catching something good, but maybe not wading through 40 years of fan books and cartoons that might not be so great.

Appreciate any input.


Better than anything in Episode II or II.

I preferred Rebels because Clone Wars kept retreading the same confrontations as stalemates - Dooku vs. Jedi, Ventress vs. Jedi, Grievous vs. Jedi. Anything featuring the Clones or Asokha really won the day for me.

Rebels escalated its villains from Kallus and the Inquistor to Tarkin to multiple Inquisitors to Vader to Thrawn.

If you want some book rec's go with:

Anything Timothy Zahn has written about THrawn, but especially his series from the early 1990s
Darth Plagueis
Shatterpoint

was Darth Plagueis any good? the summary made it sound boring and rooting for the bad guy.

If you're listening on Audible, the Aftermath trilogy is very good. It's almost unreadable on paper.

If you're a Clone Wars watcher, I highly recommend Ahsoka and Dark Disciple.

Lords of the Sith and Tarkin are great Vader books and up the list of best overall, especially Tarkin.

It's a young adult title, but Lost Stars may be the best new Star Wars novel.

I love Filoni but imagine that making a live action series is waaaay different than an animated one. He also may not WANT to do live action.

Rewatching all the Maul episodes of TCW and am reminded how awesome the choreography is in this show. If you're not a Clone Wars veteran, maybe check out Season 5, Episode 1: Revival. A great Maul vs Kenobi episode, with the bonus of featuring Hondo, one of the animated canon's best characters.

Man, the fight between Pre Vizsla and Maul is awesome, too. Any fight involving the Darksaber automatically gets bonus points.

Brad Bird seems to have made the transition nicely.

Not that big of a fan of his either.

I've seen a few episodes from season 1. I enjoyed what I saw but it just didn't grab me much.

And there is almost too much to watch these days; I tend to prioritize live-action over animation.

I'll definitely try to catch up before the newest season.
Be aware that you can't watch these in episodic order. For some stupid reason they were originally released out of chronological order. So, in some cases you have to jump forward and watch some episodes from season 2 before you watch some episodes in season 1. And this isn't a flashback scenario. They were literally released out of order.

They weren't released out of order. They were produced independently without respect to order. The series, particularly at the beginning, was a true serial that told individual stories that were pretty much self contained. You would start an episode and not know who was going to be in it or what the story would be.

Later, many popular episodes got lead-ins and the overall narrative took hold and it became more of a modern sequential series.

Meh. Not excited for this one after the turd that I saw last December. I'm going to wait for the reviews from this board before I consider seeing it.

This sentiment has been posted/discussed ad nauseam since December. We all get it. I was simply posting it as news, not as endorsement.

Nobody can tell you if you'll like or dislike a movie, especially when it comes to Star Wars.

I'm disappointed with how Luke was handled in VIII.

I can't WAIT for IX. I'm ready to see how we wrap up the saga.

Well, whatever they did you can't watch them S1E1 through n because it will be massively confusing otherwise.

Sure you can. I agree it's not my favorite way to watch, but each episode stands alone with an intro and everything. It's how people watched it originally so it's not a huge problem.

Several of the episodes have arcs that carry across more than one episode. Not every episode is self-contained.

Even those that have multi-episode arcs have the intros that catch you up. You could watch any episode on its own and be okay except maybe the REALLY deep arcs like Mortis or Yoda's search for the Living Force.
