    Hmm, I didn’t feel it flowed very well, as though it were two different scenarios welded together – the first half sluggish and the second flashy but flimsy. We have the slow and not terribly exciting scenes of Ezra’s earlier childhood and the voices of his parents … ghostly recollections without imagery to support them never make for fun television, especially for Star Wars which is a visual medium. The Empire Day celebrations and subsequent dogfight-pursuit was action rather than story (a checklist of characters, toyetic vehicles and SW tropes) and contrasted roughly with the first half of the episode, then was halted abruptly with the ‘To Be Continued’ tag, just as the episode was beginning to become exciting and gain traction. Cliffhangers are great, very Flash Gordonesque, but I felt this cliffhanger came just as things were getting exciting, rather than following a good dose of WOWZAH to make it impressive as a piece in its own right?

    I hate to say this but I’m finding rebels pretty boring …

    Unless Ezra can sense Force Ghosts (which should not be happening because was’t Qui Gon the first to figure out how to return to communicate with the living?) does this mean Ezra’s parents are alive?

      Well, I know the EU doesn’t count anymore but there have been plenty of times in the EU where there were force ghosts and even Sith force ghosts.

    they set up the Death Star in this episode…how cool is that?!?!? this was the best episode so far. We are officially on a running 5 year clock, already making the events of A NEW HOPE seem that much more important. Wow! Connective tissue is amazing

      Oh well, guess we’ll have to wait and watch it legally 🙁

    • November 19, 2014 at 1:53 am

      You are actually the best.

    • November 19, 2014 at 12:15 pm

      Thank you so much, man! But the last time you uploaded the series in HD quality. Should we wait for this series in HD?

      • November 19, 2014 at 2:11 pm

        Nah its definitely watchable. This was the best episode yet so go see it!

        • November 19, 2014 at 3:34 pm

          I already watched this episode) And I totally agree that this is the best episode yet! And that’s why it is better to look in HD

          • November 19, 2014 at 4:16 pm

            LoDo you still want a HD version? Cuz if you do I’ll upload one tonight after work.
            the reason this one wasn’t HD was because it was the only version I could find this week but a HD version should be out by now

  • November 19, 2014 at 5:43 am

    Awesome! Thanks again, now back to some illegal viewing of Star Wars Rebels, yay!

    Seriously though, it’s really cool of you to post this!

  • November 19, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Best episode yet!!!! Thank you- any version works for me. Esp. when its free, I ain’t picky. Much appreciated. Gonna go watch it again!

    • November 19, 2014 at 8:13 pm

      Couldn’t agree more. Show is definitely improving (WHEW!!!)

  • November 19, 2014 at 11:43 pm

    ughh for the life of me I can’t find a HD version, this is so wierd. ah well, look for my post on the next rebels recon. the latest it will be posted each week is Tuesday evening.

    • November 20, 2014 at 1:04 am

      There’s supposed to be some long ass break until the next new episode.
      Hard to know how early the next one will be available before the official broadcast.
      HD is better but not a BFD, at least we get something early

        To quote Darth Vader “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

    I suspect that Fulcrum is Leia.
