    What they DIDN’T tell you is that the ‘mystery of Chopper Base’ is actually “Why did LFL waste almost an entire season of an expensive to produce animated show on tedious filler before finally getting around to a couple of episodes we might care about?”.

    • March 22, 2016 at 7:55 pm

      I’ve tried and just can’t like it…although, I still watch it. They should only make about 6 episodes for a season in order to only tell meaningful stories, imo.

      • March 22, 2016 at 7:59 pm

        It’s a cartoon, on a channel geared towards kids (though that’s not to say that older audiences can’t try to watch and enjoy them). What do you expect?

        Come on now…this isn’t Game of Thrones!

        • March 22, 2016 at 8:18 pm

          “It’s for kids” is the lamest argument ever. If a show is truly high-quality, it can transcend age barriers. Case and point: The Clone Wars.

          • March 23, 2016 at 12:15 am

            You’re forgetting that it’s just on its second season, and I don’t think it’s fair to compare it to TCW at the moment as that series went on for 6 seasons; furthermore, TCW didn’t really start hitting its stride till about season 3. (cont’d)

          • March 23, 2016 at 1:33 am

            And the first 2 seasons of TCW are just as bad. The “for kids” argument can’t be used to defend them either.

          • March 23, 2016 at 4:25 pm

            The “kids” argument always makes me shake my head. What sort of old coot does one have to be in order to crap on kids’ content? Certainly not someone that actually has kids, that’s for sure. I guess if you’re some bitter 45-year-old without any progeny that might make a bit of sense, but it’s sad nonetheless.

            I’ve always found the best Star Wars content to be that that appeals to both children and adults alike. That being said, there’s always room for content that appeals to one or the other exclusively. The LEGO Star Wars shows are a great example. My boys love them. I don’t really get into them. That being said, I’m hardly going to complain about them because of their whimsical content. I’m 40 years sold. I’m completely able to wrap my head around the idea the writers and producers of shows like this didn’t exactly have me in mind when going through the creative process.

            Any other mindset is misguided, short-sighted, and selfish.

          • March 23, 2016 at 4:42 am

            Shhh..don’t make me miss the clone wars even more than I already do.

        • March 22, 2016 at 10:45 pm

          It’s not even SW to me.

          • March 22, 2016 at 10:57 pm

            Let’s not deal in absolutes and start making “this feels like SW” or “this doesn’t feel like SW” definitions, ok? That kind of talk is what makes SW as the saga and franchise that it is to feel limited and as if it shouldn’t evolve

            I’m not asking you to like it but there are those that do. Just remember, that not every SW product made is going to be liked by everyone, whether it’s movies, TV content book, comments, games, etc.Simply, not everything will appeal to everyone.

            I just made that comment for perspective reminding purposes.

          • March 22, 2016 at 11:16 pm

            Notice…I said to me….lol, read before you go off on a tangent.

          • March 22, 2016 at 11:36 pm

            Well, it may not appeal to you and that’s ok (and yes, I read what you stated. That still doesn’t mean that you can overwrite official canon).

          • March 22, 2016 at 11:50 pm

            Who said I was….you’re confusing me. I just think they should make less episodes and focus on the quality. But, I’ll never like this show….so whatever

          • March 23, 2016 at 1:31 am

            There is no “to me”. It may not be good, but it’s still Star Wars. You don’t get to decide that.

          • March 23, 2016 at 2:01 am

            Yes there is a to me….because for me it doesn’t feel like it. It may for you and everyone else. We all get to decide for ourselves. Right?

          • March 23, 2016 at 2:28 am


        • March 26, 2016 at 11:57 pm

          I expect at least a little bit of quality a la TCW.

      • March 23, 2016 at 6:40 pm

        See! This is a much more reasonable way to state you don’t like something. And I apologize that people below have gone after you for simply having an opinion contrary to theirs.

    • March 23, 2016 at 6:39 pm

      It’s the same as any other television show. You have the core story episodes that are drawn out over a season, with filler in between.

      If they focused every episode on the main story arc, you’d still receive less story in each episode, with a majority being filler mixed in. In my opinion, this makes the seasons feel longer and more boring because they address the relevant issue at a snails pace because they need to touch on it every episode but can only do so for ten or fifteen minutes without getting ahead of themselves.

      This season was largely catch up for back story since last season didn’t have the time to explore each character and the shows creators wanted to.

      I may have made the choice to extend those back story episodes over more than JUST this season, but oh well, I enjoyed it still.

      In the case of Rebels they took an X-Files-like route. Monster of the week episodes are replaced with “Galactic Civil War Battle” encounters.

      • March 23, 2016 at 10:06 pm

        But there were literally like 5 filler episodes in a row. That’s just unnecessary.

        • March 24, 2016 at 11:23 pm

          The pacing for this season was awful. That I cannot fight, as much as I love the show.

          • March 25, 2016 at 2:59 am

            Seriously. They had an awesome episode (Shadows of the jedi temple guards or whatever whatever) and then what do they do? Take a week-long break and then pick up with two “meh” filler episodes.

          • March 25, 2016 at 4:47 am

            Yeap. Won’t defend their pacing. Compared to TCW it’s off, they need to fix it next season.

  • March 22, 2016 at 7:45 pm

    Guitars in space.

    • March 22, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      Yeah… doesn’t fit ๐Ÿ™

      • March 22, 2016 at 10:14 pm

        a sweet power ballad fits in anywhere

        • March 23, 2016 at 1:28 pm

          Does it ever.

      • March 23, 2016 at 9:12 pm

        I appreciate that the idea. Let’s you know there’s a big galaxy out there, where other things besides war are happening.

  • March 22, 2016 at 7:48 pm

    If they are going to do direct to video releases, I’d like to see animated ones ala the DC ones someday. That way they could cover more eras/characters, vary animation styles, and censorship wouldn’t be an issue.

  • March 22, 2016 at 8:08 pm

    Looks like a short version of starship troopers ๐Ÿ™

  • March 22, 2016 at 8:40 pm

    Well, those large spider-like things are clearly from a McQuarrie piece of concept art, but from that painting I always figured those things to be mostly harmless. No?

    • March 22, 2016 at 9:58 pm

      They were originally background creatures for Dagobah.

      • March 22, 2016 at 10:32 pm

        They look very similiar to Kinraths from the Kotor video game series. And that’s not the only thing shown or teased so far that has a Kotor vibe. And I’m sure that’s not coincidental.

  • March 22, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    Why the fuck is there suddenly rock and roll music in the GFFA?

    • March 22, 2016 at 10:06 pm

      Well there’s jazz, disco, and baroque, so why not 80’s stadium rock? It’s a little jarring at first, but I’m glad that Zeb’s a classic rock fan.

    • March 22, 2016 at 10:10 pm

      rock is universal

    • March 22, 2016 at 10:18 pm

      God Gave Rock ‘N Roll to you, gave Rock ‘N Roll to me, gave Rock ‘N Roll to everyone…

    • March 23, 2016 at 6:34 pm

      That was the most 80’s sequence ever.

      I approve.

  • March 22, 2016 at 11:44 pm

    Definitely not digging that music it just doesn’t fit

    • March 23, 2016 at 4:18 pm

      It was like some 80s guitar solo lol

      • March 24, 2016 at 2:50 pm

        I know! Threw me out of the star wars universe and scratching my head

  • March 23, 2016 at 1:59 am

    this show is getting more and more darker by each episode I think the A-wing pilot was eaten by the Spiders

    • March 23, 2016 at 4:39 am

      “More darker”?

  • March 23, 2016 at 10:15 pm

    This episode was okay. Just get to DARTH MAUL!
