The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video games are in a bit of an odd place these days. Wildly successful and critically regarded as being among the very best stories in the Star Wars series, it has become a foundational text in its own right. There are the small things – the appearance of a Selkath or … Continue reading STAR WARS REBELS Primer – Malachor
The great irony of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is that as the show has progressed and improved, the in-universe justification for a show about S.H.I.E.L.D. has grown more and more tenuous. On the film side of things, Marvel has completely eradicated and discredited S.H.I.E.L.D. – the whole purpose of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, after all, was to show … Continue reading Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Who Are the Secret Warriors?

I’ve made no secret of my distaste for this show and the fact that I think almost all of it bad, but this four episode arc is not only the best the … Continue reading STAR WARS REBELS Primer – Ahsoka Tano

I certainly wasn’t expecting to completely fall in love with a new Star Wars cartoon, especially not to the point that it would actually compel me to go back and sit through the mostly … Continue reading Wild Speculation for STAR WARS REBELS Season Two
Over the past few months I’ve watched Star Wars: The Clone Wars in its entirety. I’m still not sure why I did this.
