In my Marvel comic canon the second wave of special teams were handpicked active robots whose experience would theoretically make more stable combiners, the Combaticons came from Cybertron, the Protectobots were imprinted from crystals explaining both Onslauhghts ancestry and First Aid's experience.

@  Cyoti : (18 June 2021 - 03:32 PM)

Even with B5, it didn't follow its original 5-year plan. Summaries from the supplementary materials for the scriptbooks demonstrates that was originally planned was very different from the actual product. Sinclair's actor's departure seemingly changed the show to the point that the stuff with the Vorlons/Shadows, the Minbari and the ending were all changed. Mapping out a show years in advance is difficult because of changing bts stuff like writers/actors leaving the show or suddenly having to retool because of ratings/execs. No plan survives intact especially in a chaotic environment of television production.

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2021 - 11:27 AM)

To be like Babylon 5, you need to cram a 2 season story arc into one because you fear being cancelled, then get further seasons you have no more material for. You also need a spinoff which the network heads don't want and do everything in their power to kill it while it's on air.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 June 2021 - 10:33 AM)

The required effort is probably why we don't have babylon 6; TNG.

@  Dekafox : (18 June 2021 - 10:23 AM)

Everyone wants to be like Babylon 5 but no one wants to put in the effort

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:36 AM)

And then, after five years of hosting their own official podcast where they would answer fan questions and always encouraged their audience to pay attention to the mysteries, after the show had ended, they claimed the show was never really about the mysteries, it was all about the characters.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 09:34 AM)

What really bugs me with "Lost" is that the producers had willfully negotiated a set end date with the network halfway through season 3 (the show ended with season 6, as planned) specifically so they could plan out the plot for the remainder of the show. Then... the plot wasn't resolved properly.

@  tigerhawk : (18 June 2021 - 04:17 AM)

By then I had lost interest in arc TV shows, I followed a few and got the impression they were just making them up as they went along. Seemed to be a trend starting with new Galactica and Lost though in actuality began with The X Files and has become a trope called 'The Chris Carter Effect'.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:12 AM)

I think it was season 3 part 1 specifically, since they had two separate plot "arcs" for season 3.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:11 AM)

They threw everything in there, with no clear story structure, no clear stakes, and characters flip-flopping wherever the episode's writer needed them to go for their half-baked plot.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2021 - 02:10 AM)

Season 3 was the worst, with a terrible meandering random events plot.

@  tigerhawk : (17 June 2021 - 11:59 PM)

'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

I rewatched season 3 resently and, I still don't like how the Obi Wan & Maul duel played out, I think it could of used just one more movement from Obi Wan to stab his foe, I mean he cuts Maul's lightsaber in two and all of sudden Maul is dying, how the hell does that work? Then the planet Obi Wan is living on, Ezra goes there with no actual knowledge on top of the fact he didn't know what the vision he seen meant or where, twin suns, that could be anywhere in the galaxy. Anyway, the story that links Rebels to Rouge One, when I first watched it, I felt it was rather dull, after rewatching it, I feel that was a wasted story with no relevance to the show actual plot. The Mandalorian plot is the real highlight of season 3 as its the story of one of the main charaters and her world. In all, I say season 3 was kind of a mixed bag with its ups and downs, thou I hope for whatever takes over from rebels, they address the outstanding issure regarding the battledroid commander who didn't obey the shutdown command, its a bit of a outstanding loose end in the show.

The slice that Obi-Wan hits Maul with is close enough that it not only goes through his saber but also through (likely a good portion of) his torso. Definitely close enough to hit some major organs.

I think the fight had to be understated to make the point. Luke and Ezra's journeys are separate paths and Obi-Wan is trying to as politely as possible get Ezra to hug off.

Maul and Kenobi are now both relics that survived a dead era. Heck, Maul should already be dead and Kenobi is focused on who he mistakenly believes to be the real chosen one. The fact that it comes to an end with a simple unobserved dual is fitting for both of them.

The one stroke kill of Maul was 100% intentional and 100% a homage to Samurai films. That is like the platonic ideal of how a Samurai dual should go.

-ZacWilliam, there's literally nothing else to it than that.

I absolutely loved everything Rebels did with Maul, I found him really interesting, but it's worth noting that I say that as a dude who has seen only a handful of CW episodes.

1) Id love to see The Vong.  Unfortunately it cant be done the way the books were done with the whole Jedi Order, unless it took place AFTER the newest trilogy with a new JO that Rey establishes.  But I doubt they jump THAT far forward.  

 

2) So where was Ahsoka during the war? I feel like she wouldn't have been one to just stay in hiding.  While I'm glad to see her character survived, and I'm curious to see what becomes of her and Sabine's quest to find Ezra.  

 

3) Can we get a Republic Commando series now? One of the best video games under the Star Wars title and some of the best set of books.

I think the obvious explanation for Ahsoka's absence from Almost Everything is that she and Sabine will probably end up somewhere far away from Star Wars as we know it. I doubt we'll get any canon follow up any time soon though, because "Sabine and Ahsoka searching for Ezra" is a bit too "just more of Rebels". I would really love to see more of those characters sooner rather than later though. I hope Marvel gets to do something in that area. Have any of Marvel's SW books been stinkers? I didn't find the Anakin and Obi-Wan book very interesting, and I'm waaaaay behind on the Poe book (and somewhat behind on the other ongoings) but they've been remarkably solid across the board for the most part.

Sabine and Ahsoka didn't go looking for Ezra until after the war was over.

 

What Ahsoka was doing between that and her fight with Vader is unknown.  She may have spent a lot of time trying to get off that planet, as only Ezra knew at that point that she survived and he was zapped away (unless he told someone else like Sabine - I can't remember if he mentioned it).

I kinda love the idea of Ahsoka just stuck there, just growing ever more bored because no one bothered to come get her.

She and Hermit-Luke should compare notes.

I can totally imagine her being stuck there until post RotJ. She had no ship and it was an ancient ruined world. Though if I were writing that's not the way I would go. My approach would be that she explored the ruined Sith temple in an exciting Indiana Jones-esque manner, fought some ancient Sith evil there, found an ancient sith starship to leave the planet but also a map to other Soth temples where other evils are working and has to go off and have adventures and spend a few years ending that threat before returning to Sabine and friends.

-ZacWilliam, I mean if the other option is just meditating for years a until she can use the Force to attract a ship.

At some point they still need to explain Ezra's green lightsaber. Did he build it? If so, where did he get the crystal? Did he just find it somewhere? Where? Did he force grab it off screen while they fled the sith temple at the end of season 2?

 

There's an episode rather early on where he receives a crystal at the Lothal temple while talking to a force-projecting Yoda and it ends with him building his lightsaber.

That was his first Saber: the blue one with the stun blaster built in.

Where did he get the crystal for the green saber?

So I finally got to watch season 4. 

 

I am not thrilled with how Rukh looks, as I always pictured him a little more reptilian than that. Still, I like that he was included and that even Pelleon got a line in on the finale.

 

Asoka surviving was awesome! She was awesome in this series and I hope that they bring her back again.

 

While i have some problems with the season, it overall was quite enjoyable and I can't wait to see more from this team with clone wars next year or so.
