What are some of the Star Wars releases you previously disliked, but now like or enjoy?

Or hated, but now love?
Or thought “meh, that was poor”. But now think “Meh, that is okay”?
Or other changes of opinion?
And so on.
 

For me it is 2008’s The Clone Wars series.

I watched seasons 1 and 2 some 8 or 9 years ago. I tried to give the series a fair chance at the time, I wanted to like it, but just couldn’t. It didn’t feel like Star Wars, had no consequences to speak of, the characters and animations were lacking, it had a lack of realism or depth for me. It was all a bit bleh. Maybe it was underwhelming as it was set in an interesting timeline in the star wars universe, but when it turned out to be something different from what I was expecting it just didn’t do it for me.

Now, I have been watching the series again, and find myself more interested in the show and actually anticipating the episodes I haven’t yet watched (I am up to season 3 ‘Ghosts Of Mortis’). The series isn’t perfect, it does have a number of stinkers or “meh” episodes, but that can be said for any long running series. The characters are growing on me, and the stories too. Not all of the stories, but more than during the original viewing years ago.
 

What about you? Are there any tv series, films, specials, novels, comics or games you have changed your opinion on?
