And he might have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for those meddling jedi...  ;D


But Mundi might have spoken in truth if there won't be any witnesses after this series.

Either that, or they're sworn to secrecy and future generations never learned of this Sith. But we know that Darth Plagueis was real, and must have been alive around this time, so there's that...

What's everyone's take on Jedi High Councilperson Ki Adi Mundi's comment about the Sith not being seen for 1000 years in the prequels, yet he's in this series? A cover-up?

Well...it could be a cover up...

Or it's not a Sith?
Or its a Sith, but the Jedi can't accept that its a Sith?
Or no one that sees the Sith lives to talk about the Sith?
Or Ki Adi Mundi has dementia?
Or the writer of the Acolyte screwed up?

The jedi have always lied, covered things up, and hidden the truth, "from a certain point of view". 

Vernestra has deliberately assembled a small council - including Adi-Mundi - to avoid telling the High Council, and therefore informing the Republic at large.  As far as the Clone Wars era council is concerned, the Sith have been extinct for millennia, unless Adi-Mundi breaks secrecy, which we know he doesn't, and maybe inadvertently actively contributes to the ultimate fall of the order.

Still doesn't make 'em morally equivalent to the Sith, despite what Harvey Weinstein's acolyte would like to do in an ham-handed manner.

Any one of these could be possible ATM and Headland will claim it was all planned, like the intro to the Battlestar Galactica reboot. ::)

Slightly tangential to The Acolyte, but still Star Wars, I just wanted to mention the YouTube series For the Empire. It was actually on another thread here that I heard about it, and it is really good.

Interesting thread in that it's gone from 'cautious optimism', to 'haters gonna hater', to 'maybe this isn't as good as I hoped' to 'yes - it's absolute bilge'. I'd say, the the LAF's credit, most people tried to give it a more than fair go but there are just too many flaws.

One wonders if the only people watching it are youtubers looking for material to make hate videos (there are a lot of them out there). Still, it has brought people together, so that's something.

Roll on Andor Season 2.

Iíll watch it to the end but for me this is the worst of the live action series so far.

Itíll no doubt get another viewing at some point in the future but not anytime soon I think.
cheers

It's all a bit Southgatey...  it might get there in the end but it's a dull old journey. Wouldn't surprise, given his lack of mobility,  to find out it was Harry Maguire guesting in the dead, shaved Wookie suit.

This weeks was much better, almost feels like the first three could've been rolled into one.

Yeah, but only because it was just one  long light sabre battle.

Props to to long necked one for getting the identity of the dark master.

Yup...tbh, they could have just started with Ep 5, and left a lot unexplained rather than spell everything out with flashbacks.

Nice to see cortosis ore in action  8)

also...
