Episode 4 was … new content? It had protagonists that needed to achieve a goal, antagonists with opposing goals, along with a beginning, middle, and end.
Seriously though, it’s really weird how different the experience watching this show is compared to Mandalorian. This show feels aggressively bland. The music is giving me flashbacks to 90s-era Berman Star Trek.
I just don’t get these writers. This show feels like it was constructed by a generic Star Wars content algorithm. I was hoping for some deeper exploration of Obi Wan’s relationship with Anakin - possibly flashbacks to the Clone Wars even. But so far no… just generic Star Wars rescue sequence in generic Imperial facility #45345 featuring inept Stormtroopers and cliched last minute saves.
Also, why is the Empire keeping dead Jedi in stasis in the basement? What the hell is possibly the point of this? Is it suggesting some kind of evil medical research/medical experiments? This wouldn’t be a Disney+ Star Wars show without a random scene showing weird shifty medical research that foreshadows something ominous having to do with cloning/Snoke/Palpatine/JFK assassination but is probably never followed up because the writers don’t actually know what’s going on.
