    It started off well first couple of episodes but I'm starting to think they've spunked the budget on those and it's now turned into a generic shite sci-fi show.
    That devil type alien thing in the last one about summed up where it's at now, shame looked to have potential.

    An absolute waste of Clancy Brown's acting skill.

    I really want you to be wrong but i fear you may be spot on. Yeah that devil dude was just the worst, espesh just after he did those 2 droids. I was being generous with "good again" if i'm honest with myself.

    The originality has been sucked out pretty quick. The exploration of the Dark side, anything. They may have someone with the dark side of the force as a series climax but that would suck because we have had nothing to know so far. Carl Weathers is the seeming bad guy for the season and it is weak or tedious, not sure which, possibly a bit of both. We need to have more information of the repurcussions should Weathers get Yoda, where is he taking him, a hint of their goals etc. So far we have seen what is seemingly his (Weathers) personal best at the end of episode 3. We need more risk and threat because the show seems to be running out of originality already.

    They may do as i note above or similar story wise but it is going to be drawn out to hell going by current pacing.

    It can recover and i hope it does. It has gone from great to good, now it is staring in the face of "ok".

    Yeah I hope it does too but I think it's fucked.... Ffs it's a galaxy..... Stop turning up on fucking Tattooine
    Yeah I really wanted it to be good.... Once they turned up on Tattoine again I knew it was fucked.
    The last three episodes have been pointless and you're right there's no stakes

    There's a chance there was about three films worth of decent material in the Star Wars universe and it was used up thirty years ago.
