Studiously avoiding this thread since Disney AU is still fucking us over. But, inspired by the new trailer I "obtained" the series to watch with the kids.
Holy fuck it's AWESOME. Totally gets that OT vibe and makes me feel the same rushy Star Wars love feeling I haven't felt since the prequels. A lot of it is the perfect use of the music, but so much of it is the sheer "aw shucks" adventure of it with the spiritual undertones of the Force.
Just watched the one with the Inquisitor and holy balls his lightsaber is cool, in fact he's a freaking great baddie. Loved the way he was just walking after them, spinning his lightsaber thing (also liked "does yours do that?") until he had to run. It's great that Jarrus isn't a full Jedi, but actually quite flawed and aware of it.
And it's not afraid to go fairly dark places, using the dead body of a Jedi Master as a spirit lure for other Jedi. Jeebus.
Fucking love this program. It's got me jazzed for Star Wars again in a way that the teaser trailer couldn't hope to accomplish.
The only reason I'm not watching more is the bloody kids are demanding to be fed instead of marathoning it through them. Where's the stamina???
