I dunno, I see both shows as a team effort, even if one person is heading it. I have heard both Favreau and Rodriguez described as showrunners. I think in either case, there isn’t a single person saying “go, no-go”. It seems like a collaboration, as it should be. If Rodriguez has had issues in the past of starting a plot, but not delivering at the end, hopefully with Favreau and others scripting, they will take the ideas and direction, and then flesh it out to a competent story.
They both have a good understanding of Star Wars, IMO, and I feel like they will make sure the final product satisfies. There will be a season two, so no need for EVERYTHING to be tied up neatly, but yes, we should get a satisfying clear obstacle and conclusion, I would hope.
I agree and I don’t have a problem with that. I don’t even mind sort of “side quest” type stories. Sure, they are sort of stand alone episodes, but they further the overall story, building on to them. I feel like the sequels and prequels tried to stuff too much into the story to make it interesting, when the original 3 films were pretty simple.
Oh, yeah, that is fair. He did get tossed around some. You would think that would at the least bruise a rib.
I don’t know if that is the case, but cybernetics have long been a part of the Star Wars universe. But never seen in such a Cyberpunk (Cybermod?) way in live action.
Re: The bacta tank. Besides being a plot device for the flash back sequences, I suspect they will eventually show something happened to really tear him up. Something that is taking a real long time for bacta to heal.
Oh yeah, I will have to look at that again. I though it was just the trope of smashing up fruit carts. I have been watching “XX things you may have missed from this episode” type vidoes to catch all the EU references.
YES! Except the Luke was edited out.
It did feel a little slow… and I have to wonder if they created a half way accurate speed one would need on cramped streets like that, and how we have been conditioned to expect everything has to go fast!
Still, we are nitpicking effects for a TV not having the same effects of movie. I remember when bad CGI spaceships rendered on an Amiga were the best were could get, and we liked it!
Yeah, but other than the Cantina one, I don’t think they had blood. I did agree he should have gotten battered up some.
