Episode 1 - was slow but okay aside from the chase. 

Episode 2 - was too frantic, a bit clumsy but still enjoyable. 

Episode 3 - was 10/10

(Page 107 of this thread makes for interesting reading - spoilers though)

I'll put this I spoilers incase people haven't seen the latest episode, but hasn't...

Spoiler

The episode absolutely obliterated the ' The last time we met I was but a learner, now I am the Master' line from A New Hope. Seeing as a near prime Vader has just dragged an aging Kenobi through the fire.

Kind of. Depends on how they finish the series. Maybe 

Spoiler

Obi Wan whoops him and gives him a wee put down like "you still have much to learn, my old apprentice"

Which might work around it a little.

I must say I thought the Leia "grandad" bar was shit. I hate the disneynification marvel pish where every character is ultra meta and self aware. I know this is petty and I overall like the show but it was the same when the fake jedi was on the brink of being lightsabered to death and said some shite joke about magnets.

My real issue is that the message from Leia to Obi Wan in "A New Hope" is all about him serving her father in the Clone Wars. Unless she goes through some sort of memory wipe after this, you'd have thought something like "Hi Ben, remember me? You made an arse of trying to save me when I got kidnapped a few years back" seems more appropriate now

Not quite yet, I would imagine the broken Obi-Wan will get his "Get up ya bum" Mickeyesque talk from a force ghost of a fallen Irishman before having one last battle with Vader.  Vader to get the Clubber Lang treatment

If it goes like that then it will be even more of a cop out given what we just seen, vader is completely and utterly full of rage, which fuels his strength, obi wan has barely done anything for ten years, theres no way within the time frame of the show that obi wan should be able to overcome what vader has become now, 

Obi wan could barely wield a lightsaber, vader was not only holding him hostage with the force, but at the same time setting the ground on fire, and his force power is now so strong he can put out flames with the force with a simple hand movement

The only way they can end the show imo (whatever series it does) is if something big happens and vader thinks obiwan is dead, that then allows them to kinda keep the meeting in a new hope on track (doesn't fix the vader master and apprentice line)

Spoiler

To keep it in any way credible and to keep the dialogue in A New Hope relevant, in the final confrontation between Kenobi and Vader in this series, Obi Wan is going to have to defeat Vader using purely wit, rather than saber or Force.

As long as he doesn't try to run away, cause he's no very good at that given vader got the jump on him 3 times lol

There might just be a spanner in the works of our argument, that has stretched back many pages.  In that the likelihood there could be other seasons to go with this one.  So that line you refer to in Episode IV might not even be finished in this season.  By the time they have told the story, the line will still be true.  However I would imagine Obi-Wan will prevail using the flawed character traits of Anakin and his wits, rather than over powering him.

Only laughable bit is obi wan, ex jedi master being outran by a fucking ten year old lassie across rooftops lol

 

Spoiler

I am a wee bit annoyed at how badly Obi-Wan has deteriorated. I mean I know he's been in hiding etc but ffs.

Obviously it doesn't fit in with the "Look! A plot hole!" stuff that we all need to get involved in but...

...regardless of their meeting in this series "When I left you I was but the learner; Now I am the master" still holds true. He does say "We meet again" in A New Hope but that obviously isn't the same as saying "When we last met I was a learner". I don't really see the issue.

I'm not overly enamoured with the prospect of a second series though. There's too much content.
