TLJ never happened. Who cares. Put an animatronic Grogu inside the build-a-lightsaber temple room and watch big kids like me fork over $200 everytime I visit just to get a glimpse of him. The fact is The Mandalorian is more Star Wars than the last trilogy ever was. Read more
I don’t think Luke’s appearance in the Mandalorian finale was empty fan service or a lack of creative imagination. Yes, there is an element of Star Wars stuck in the past but that seems mostly because there’s unfinished business. Luke showing up fulfilled in a small part what the sequel trilogies denied an audience,…
I think you just defined why I did not care for the sequels. I didn’t WANT movies where Han Solo is murdered by his son or Luke Skywalker is broken and bitter. For me, the OT was about hope and wonder and a lot of fun. There was even some of that in the prequels until they ended up where they needed to go. But the… Read more

The weirdest thing I’m seeing are fan theories that the S2 finale of Mandalorian effectively wipes out the sequel trilogy, that somehow by having badass young Luke show up and take Grogu as his apprentice (ward?), Episodes VII-IX are rendered invalid and retconned from the saga. Read more
I really enjoyed the show with my kids...especially the irreverent humor towards the things we all complain/joke about.

There is no one that knows how to Star Wars than Dave Filoni. He is the true heir to George Lucas’s vision, most definitely not Kathleen Kennedy. Kennedy has made a mess of the Star Wars universe, just look to the upcoming High Republic storyline, what do Jedi fear? Why space pirates and evil plant creatures of… Read more
The treatment of droids is weird, anyway.... Given how they’re treated as objects, despite obviously being sentient.. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone found a way to program them to feel pain just to torture them... Read more
Yeah, I think the Punisher works best as an antagonist against an actual hero. I tried to watch his Netflix series, but I got the vibe they were making him what real-life paranoid militia gun-nuts WISH they could be, and those kooks don’t need the encouragement. Read more
Are we SURE it’s not got a tie to Sean Bean?
One of the updates killed my Nexus 7 (2nd generation). It went into a boot loop after that. Called Google support, who told me to let it loop. Well, that solved the boot loop. It wouldn’t boot any more after a day of that. Google said “Oops. Looks like you’re out of warranty. Sorry.” Read more
