Meh. More proof that SW is going down hill. They're trying to patch up flaws in the PT by retrofitting the Saga in the TV shows:
1) The return of Darth Maul. Sure, DM was underutilized in the PT. But resurrecting him only makes things worse.
2) Introducing the Mandalorians now only underlines that they should have been a major antagonist in the PT to begin with, and that the whole "Boba Fett is a Clone" is not well thought out.
3) The Emperor should never, ever have a lightsaber. Let alone two. Yuck!! That image alone is enough for me to not touch the season with a pair of pliers.
4) Having Anakin be angrier only serves to underline the imcompetence of the Jedi even more. I mean, how many hints to those guys need to pick up the fact that he's got issues and need some frikking therapy already!
In short - no, this is not what SW should be.
How exactly does fixing the flaws make Star Wars as a whole worse? And even if they were fixes for the worse, ala Greedo, I would hardly call that proof.
1. He had no character whatsoever in TPM, how does bringing him back and giving him an actual identity make things worse. Furthermore, he wasn't resurrected, he never died to start with.
2. How does introducing a secondary set of villains prove that they should have been in the movies. That's like saying that having the Black Sun appear as villains in Shadows of the Empire proves that they should have been in Empire Strikes Back.
3. First, the idea of whether the Emperor should or should not have a light-saber is entirely a mater of opinion, not forgone fact (same thing with Yoda BTW). But even if that weren't up for debate, how exactly is the Emperor going to defend himself against two attackers simultaneously both of whom are wielding double bladed lightsabers with only one lightsaber. He needs two so he can block two simultaneous attacks.
4. Having Anakin become angry slowly as the show progresses helps make his fall to the dark side more believable than simply going all at once. Anakin has had moments where he's dipped a little close to the dark side throughout the series and he always bounces back. It's called foreshadowing. BTW, Luke did the exact same thing in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, getting angry at Yoda, Ben, Vader, the Emperor. And he didn't fall to the dark side. You could also argue that Obi-wan walked dangerously close to the dark side when he lashed out at Maul, or what about Mace Windu prepared to strike down a disarmed Palpatine. There's a big difference between having a moment where you loose control of your emotions and sitting around constantly brooding. The Jedi teach to let go of your anger, not suppress it. You will get angry, but as a Jedi you need to be able to let it go. You can't make an accurate distinction about whether or not the Jedi should have been able to see Anakin's fall to the dark side when you're looking at it through the goggles of hindsight. It always seems so obvious after the fact, doesn't it, but I've never seen one of my friends or coworkers in a moment of frustration and immediately think to myself, wow, that guy is probably going to come in tomorrow and decapitate a bunch of children.
