I'm really hoping ep 4 was a low point rather than the direction it is heading. Nothing wrong per se but hardly original.....

Absolutely loved this episode for that very reason:)

The big problem with Episode 4 is that traditionally there are 7 defenders of the the town against the Japanese or Mexican or whatever they were bandits.

Which parts that you have seen so far have been particularly original?

Finally watched Episode 5. The series visits Tattooine at last and this feels like a homage to the original film.

Cantina - Yep
Tuskan Raiders - Yep
Dewback - Yep
Familiar looking droids - Yep

I did enjoy this episode  :)

Much preferred this one. Could have easily gone the other way

Didn't mind ep.4.

I mean, the entire character appears to be based around Clint Eastwood in a western. Mando with no name?

Really liked No 5
Does anybody know where the art work on the credits comes from ?

Is that not the Doug Chang/Ralph Mcquarrie Stuff? I imagine they’ll make a book you can buy of the concept art from the series. They did that with all of the films.

I liked 6th a lot..  Second best after the first IMHO.

He could be made better by killing the bastards but I guess he has to be a good guy and not that ruthless (he is only to droids  pg13 thing :)  and they spared him anyway.

Agreed, but overall I got more and more disappointed.
True Star Wars in the look and feel, but where is the overall storyarc?
For 6 Episodes surprisingly little happened!!!
cheers and keep on gaming, Agis - http://www.adpublishing.de

It was supposed to be a limited 8 episodes show, but, with all the fuss created by "baby Yoda" on the net, maybe they decided to do further seasons... Let's hope not as this always results in diluted storyline and increasingly bad episodes... >:(

It was really supposed to be 8 episodes only ?

If so the plot is seriously thin (Non existant really)  o_o

I hoped for 8+8 season like they do some shows

I suspect they may not have planned it to be anything at this point.

I say that because the original plan was for a Bobba Fett movie which got panned. This then came about and it is clear they had fun doing it. It reminds me of a lot of old 50's/60's shows in that the plots aren't amazing but it gives you all of the entertainment and fun you'd want in 30min episodes.

Watching Episode 6 made wonder if the creators/writers had played Imperial Assault. Very much had that vibe about it.

This series has been perfect for me - "hey, watch this cool star wars stuff", it's basically all I need. I loved 4, scenarios like that are the reason I love star wars. I like seeing the universe post-Empire, I like seeing that things don't seem to have improved much, it's interesting.
