Episode numbers were a mistake.
The Mandalorian should never have brought in preexisting characters.
TLJ didn’t derail the sequel trilogy. TFA already did, halfway through its running time. TLJ just made people aware of the derailment.
Geonosis is the coolest looking planet shown in the saga.
Watto and Nute Gunray are worse than Jar Jar.
I agree with all of this (except for your fourth point)! Happy to find a like-minded individual!
I’m glad to hear you say that!
I have a soft spot for Geonosis. The landscape and architecture are just really cool to me. Something about it has always struck me as especially memorable.
I always hated Gunray, though, and not in the way you’re supposed to hate a villain. He’s basically the main antagonist of TPM, and he’s woefully unfit to fill that role.
Also, one more take. That one moment of the Ewok dying and his friend mourning him in RotJ is sadder than the entire Order 66 scene in RotS.
