I’ve never been that interested in TCW or Rebels, but I could easily imagine myself jumping in if there were movie edits of the shows. Does anyone know if there’s someone in our midst who is / has been juggling with this kind of an idea? A story arc in a single movie or two with all the filler cut out? To me, that would probably be the most enjoyable way of watching (or just look up all the filler episodes and skip them).
I always watch filler because one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so I think I should see everything for myself to form my own opinion. I encourage everyone else to do the same.
Rebels literally took the most commonly cited “filler” episode and made it a crucial element of its finale’s climax. So yeah sometimes it can be tricky. I will say though due to TCW’s non-serialized/episodic-arc nature, combined with the rotating cast, you can pretty easily skip around with that show.
