This show is f&$@ing pathetic…never thought there would be a character more annoying to me than Jar Jar and Episode 2 Anakin…Ezra…I hate this character with all my black heart…a total Luke Skywalker rip off and all this crap about inquisitors is ridiculous…Vader is suppose to be the one purging the galaxy if Jedi! I can’t believe so many of you give this crap show a pass…you’re clearly blinded by your nostaligia for the OT
I can’t believe so many people are into this show, even granting it status equal to the original trilogy. For me, this show is a huge disappointment. It’s lame and completely misses the mark in the kind of story that I wanted to see take place between episode 3 and 4. I would think that if you were to ask fans what they wanted to see in a show that takes place between episode 3 and 4 the number one answer would have been Darth Vader. I know for me personally I want to see Vader hunt down the remaining Jedi. Instead we get no Vader except for one episode (those stupid cameos that aren’t even a minute long in season 1 don’t count for me). Instead we get the Inquisitors, stupid and pointless characters who are playing the role Vader should be doing.
Another point where this show fails is in the Rebels crew. I would think that a majority of Star Wars fans when asked what they would want to see in a Rebels show would say they want to see Mon Mothma, Bail Organa, Wedge Antilles, Biggs Darklighter and a young princess Leia coordinating their rebellion against the empire. Instead we get a lame and corny wannabe Luke Skywalker character, Ezra, who is more annoying than Anakin in AOTC could ever be, and feels like a total gimmick to copy the Luke character. Ezra is a totally unlikable character for me and I hate his stupid Sling shot! Man, how lame can you be? Sabine is another gimmicky character, sporting pink mandalorian armor, it just feels like a Disney business ploy to target little girls, which is exactly what it is ( “look! she’s a girl! and she has pink mandalorian armor! ain’t it cool girls? now buy all her toys!”). There’s nothing wrong with female characters but why depict it like this? Sabine even spray paints a TIE fighter hot flourescent colors! I wish this show would have been more like the EU Dark Horse comics “The Purge” and “At War With the Empire.” You know, actually tried to have some edge? The clone wars TV show was more edgy than this and at least they focused on their main characters like Anakin and Obi Wan and didn’t pull a bunch of gimmicky lame characters out of their butts.
This show just feels too kiddy at times and feels like they competely missed the mark. I want to see Vader hunting down Jedi, I want to see Mon Mothma getting the the Death Star plans, I want to see Wedge and Biggs in their X Wings, I want to see Bail Organa’s last stand on alderaan before he’s blown to bits, I want to see how Leia came to be a leader of the rebellion. As far as new characters Hera and Kanan are likable and I wish the show would cut the rest of the crew out because I don’t like them, especially Zeb and Ezra, who horseplay way too much like Tom and Jerry. The only good thing about this show was seeing Tarkin show up at the end if season 1, revealing Ashoka’s return and that Vader episode in season 2.
I know many of you disliked the prequels but to me this is far more blasphemous…I’d rather watch bith clone wars tv shows and revenge of the sith than thismlame shit any day
