Lounge II (The Lounge Strikes Back)

The Clone Wars is certainly great, and rebel's, while I'm a little pissed at how they messed with Thrawn in that last episode, was decent. Certainly ready for whatever show Dave Filoni does next. As for the other stuff... let's just say I get physical distress thinking about some of the writing in Mando and the Sequels.

I honestly love clone wars Anakin way better than movie Anakin

It's hard not to. He's just the perfect blend of highly intelligent with no common sense meshed with smirky arrogance and topped off with a heap of wise-cracking adrenaline junkie. You get that for seven seasons and it is hard not to love the moron. 

Makes Revenge of the Sith even more tragic though. Ugh, my heart.

her fight with Vader, oh man, and the way they used Anakin's voice and overlapped it with Vader's

My initial reaction was simply "AHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

I actually went to Star Wars celebration last year and got to see some of the panels with Filoni and crew and it was so incredible. All of Filoni's characters are just... *chef's kiss*

I am mad green with envy. That sounds spectacular. What was your favorite part?

She died in the novel dark disciple, I think! So, sadly, we probably won't ever see her again :,(

Google says you are correct. 

I have not decided if this means I should read the book or avoid it. 

Thrawn book was awesome. It led so well into Rebels.

Can you imagine what Thrawn would be like if he was written excellently instead of just good?

*shudder* 

I want the pain.

I think it depends on what you are expecting from Mando. 

If you are looking for an elegant, deep Star Wars story that hits emotionally, makes you question everything, and is a stunning work of writing...that isn't Mando.

If you are okay with the Adventure-of-the-Week as Metal Dad and his starving Green Child explore the universe, make wacky friends, slaughter awesome beasts, and occasionally stumble upon a serious plot...buckle up. And honestly, right now, I will happily take the Child's weekly taste testing over a Game of Throne's level seriousness. Life is hard enough right now. I like having something warm-hearted to look forward to.

I'm looking for consistent and logical writing. While they have their moments, they have their contrived episodes and i can't help but see Mando being pulled by a tie fighter and thinking "His arm should be ripped off." and fobs do not work when you consider how they would impact the universe at large. It's not all bad, but I would like it to be a little better. And it's not about seriousness, the tone of the show is not what I'm criticizing, I'm am more than aware when something simply isn't what I enjoy but is well-crafted. Remeber, I mentioned I liked rebels and clone wars, very episodic adventure of the week shows.

First, read the recent Thrawn trilogy, it's really good. *Kisses*

And second, what do you mean by pain? Do you mean you want Thrawn to kill all our heroes with his brilliant tactics and cold calculating posture and attitude and commanding tone and really nice c... Sorry, lost my train of thought there. But yeah, I'd love having a show that just let it be genocided by Thrawn, hopefully while having his complex character intact and not reduced to 'really smart evil guy'.

Oh yeah, I'm giggling at that one. Totally agree there. I've seen theories that suggest that Mandalorian armor has the tech built into it to allow it to absorb kinetic energy...which mostly just sounds like excuses to make up for poor writing.

They are on my To Be Read list!

Exactly! I want a Thrawn show where I feel every moment a deep seated fear for the Rebel Alliance. That there is no way out magical solution and Thrawn just wipes the floor in his cold, calculating way. For someone who is a villain, I find myself rooting for him. I have a severe weakness for complex, highly intelligent baddies. Especially ones who love art, as an artist myself.

The panels were really enjoyable! I waited so many hours to get into the rebels panel but it was well worth it!

Memorable things from the whole experience:

  • The trailer drop for The Rise of Skywalker. I wasn't in that panel but I was in the convention hall where everyone watched it on a big screen, and when palpatine laughed in the trailer EVERYONE lost their minds. (it was hilarious)
  • ALL the costumes.
  • Of course the rebels panel, I love listening to Dave Filoni talk.
  • Getting into the clone wars panel, because it was snowing and our flight got canceled, so we decided to try our luck getting into the panel and we actually got in on a day we didn't pay for (I know, how scandalous).
  • The clone wars panel was honestly the best part because it was where they dropped a real trailer for the last season that we all didn't think we were going to get. You can imagine my hype.
  • All the free posters
  • The shop was also really cool! The line was ridiculous to get in but still worth it.

I included my view of the clone wars panel and me in front of an xwing :)
