Fair comment, the dialogue in Star Wars has always been of the highest standard

It’s not as jarringly bad as the first 2 episodes as Obi-Wan. Third Sister’s is up there with the very worst points of the prequels.

It really is. 

Take of the nostalgic specs. The OG films had some laughable patter, inconsistencies, shite acting and plot holes all the way through them.

There has been some awful stuff in Kenobi, ill admit.

But all I was in it for was Ewan McGregor reprising the Kenobi role and seeing Vader played by Christiansen. The scenes they were in were more than good enough for me. 

The Turd Sister was terribly written and acted. Leia shouldn't have been in it. It should have been purely Vader hunting down Kenobi from the start through the Inquisitors or his own secret apprentice or bounty hunter or something. But it was always going to be a bit of a dead rubber as we all know Vader or Kenobis end point.

Was it Tolkien level stuff? Nope. But tbh I don't want that in my Laser Sword weilding Space Wizard Opera. 

Despite its problems, it was still more enjoyable than the entire ST for me, and all other movies post Disney era.

However, please please please stop it now Disney. Keep Mando going, its a good wee series. If you're doing a second Kenobi season then ok, I'm fine with that as long as there's no more daft links to the OT now. Just have him go off, train with Qui Gon and then kill some secret apprentice Vader sends after him or something. A third StarKiller or something. Don't have him go off and meet Chewie or Lando or something.

As I said before, let's see some weird Dark Side stuff. Young Palpy and his Master, or a story set way before the PT. Even Darth Revan or Malgus. Jedi Hunters. Dark Jedi. Something fresh.

And I dont care for the up coming Cassio And/Or or whatever it is.

IM actually more hyped for Andor than I was for Kenobi. 

There are a lot of people that think Rogue one is actualy the best Star Wars film (me included) so getting more of that, for me is going to be amazing, even the trailer looks head and shoulders above anything else star wars related except for the Madalorian. It gets the blend of technology but poverty for the general public more in keeping with the originals. Again though with Andor even though its 2 seasons, you know where it ends so probably wont have the same impact.

Again the Mandalorian for me works as it looks and feels like star wars with characters that (in the main) that werent in any of the movies but are recognisable as being of the star wars universe

I loved the last episode and I think it's a good end to the series.  It will be interesting to see if they decide to go for a second series, as they've pretty much left it in a place that sets up A New Hope.  The only way it could work is if it's completely absent of Vader or any of the OT characters and has Obi Wan off doing some stuff totally under the radar.  

The duel between Vader and Obi Wan in this episode was everything I think you could have hoped for and it sort of closes that "The circle is now complete. When I left you I was but the learner, but now I am the master" plot hole from ANH, as Obi Wan very definitely shows him he's still in charge here.

I loved the way they had Anakin and Vader's voices overlapping when his helmet was broken (despite them already using that same trick in Rebels) and the way they lit it, with the blue of Obi Wan's lightsaber on his face when for the briefest moment it looked like Obi Wan's words were getting through to him, then the change to red when he closed himself off again.

Not sure about the plot holes it opens up though, with Leia very much knowing who Obi Wan is, but not appearing to have any memory of him by the time ANH comes around.

She knew his name, background and where he lived, she had to to send him the death star plans.

I loved Kenobi. Of course Leia had to be in it, her being in trouble is the only possible way to get Obi-wan off Tatooine, anything else would cheapen his self imposed exile and efforts to watch over Luke. Also, it gave real background to Leia's belief in the rebellion and showed the seeds of her growth into the Leia that became a General

Yes there were some dodgy bits but I don't really care, the Obi-wan/ Vader stuff was top notch.

To take things back a bit, I've been watching The Clone Wars animated stuff. Film was fairly decent. Season 1 though was a complete cluster f**k. only now I have slogged my way through it am I enjoying season 2. (which is/seems great BTW)

Clone Wars gets better as it goes.  The recent final season was magnificent.  The last 4 episode are as good a Star Wars "film" as anything they've released recently. 

Rebels is also great.

Also for some reason they aren't in correct order, the film comes after an episode set later in a series for a start, so it seems jumbled up at times

Hot dog! We have a wiener! 

Thanks for that. Still can't work out who the black and white one belonged to. All the pics I've found are red and white which probably explains why I couldn't find anything before
