Yeah, and Doctor Who was ruined when it shifted focus from a lovely policeman to this time travel rubbish.
Can somebody please add an 84 year old Jar Jar among the civilian fleet?
If it makes you feel any better, I don’t mind you guys sharing your thoughts on it. I think the rule is more about avoiding heated debates. If you guys just wanna get it off your chest so we can move on, I think that’d be okay.
I prefer the ST to The Mandalorian.
Who refers to their dad by their full name like that?
Anyway, wow, that is impressive. A little grainy though.
Replace Tarkin with a Jango clone.
Now I don’t mean in one sitting, but rather, how long can you go watching a show regularly before you get bored of it. Not that you don’t come back to it later, but rather that you need to put it down in the first place. And for the sake of this discussion, that means waiting for a new season is a break (although the fact that you’re still craving more is worth an acknowledgement).
I lost interest in Naruto after 97 episodes (will revisit someday).
When I finished 97th and final episode of Code Lyoko, I felt like it was just right. I had my fill, but enjoyed every minute of it.
I remember seeking out similar shows to fill the void of Mystery Incorporated after its 52 episode run.
Avatar had me hooked 'til the end with 91 episodes, leaving me eager to jump straight into Legend of Korra (which I quickly realized I didn’t like much).
After 106 episodes of William Hartnell Doctor Who, I just needed a break. I definitely got through over (the equivalent of - as the episodes are double lenght) a hundred of the modern series (there were 6 at the time) and was still craving more, but that was years prior and unrelated.
I happily made my way through all (at the time) 125 episodes of TCW, and will need to rewatch it at some point, given the new season. I don’t recall being in desperate need for more Clone Wars, but I was annoyed at being cancelled prematurely.
Conclusion? I guess the ideal amount is around 100.
Really? I’m just overthinking this for my own projects.
As a kid I would sometimes catch the Simpsons on TV. I didn’t love it, but it was perfectly serviceable. Then I kept hearing online when I got older that people thought it was bad now and was better in the earlier scenes. One day I watched the very first episode in order to test that. The one where they find the dog on Christmas or something. The quality was exactly the same. Only the animation had changed. If it were written today, I wouldn’t have noticed the difference.
Conclusion: The Simpsons hasn’t gotten any worse since it started.
Granted, in retrospect, the sample size is to small to provide an accurate judgement, but like I said, I don’t care for sitcoms, so I can’t be bothered sitting through more of it. It was mildly amusing then and is mildly amusing now.
I think there’s a thread for that buried somewhere.
These edits get rid of the excessive comedy of TFA.
What’s the equivalent of cheap frozen dinner in this context?
I’m completely and utterly indifferent to the Planet of the Apes franchise.
Does anyone have a strong attachment to it, though?
I think this article makes a very good point: it’s not the ending that messes everything up, it’s the pointlessly meandering middle. Nothing of consequence happens until the finale, which on its own is actually fairly solid IMO, if uninspired.
I don’t have any problem with the concept; all of the Knights wear thick enough clothing that you wouldn’t be able to tell any more than you could tell Enfys Nest was a woman. My problem is that Sollony ain’t one of the Knights of Ren we see in the flashback or in any of the supporting material. She comes out of nowhere.
How do we know that? We don’t have the script.
You’re both wrong. Sollony could be any one of the knights we’ve already seen, and we do have a script (though maybe not the exact draft you’re looking for). It was leaked and confirmed as real by Trevorrow himself, remember?

The Last Jedi’s comedy is perfectly consistent with The Force Awakens. While people were calling at the film’s excessive humor, I’d already called it out two years prior, yet no one listened. I mean, does the leaf gag really feel that much different than “Who’s in charge now, Phasma”?
There was also something else I wanted to say was perfectly consistent with its predecessor despite what people say, but I forgot what it was.
No, it’s an apt analogy for something manufactured and artificial that feels really good in the moment, but doesn’t hold up in the long term.
You know, you could be right. The grass is always greener on the other side but I’ll wait till I see his Jurassic Word 3 to pass my verdict on him as a film-maker.
That makes two sandwich trilogies. Shoulda just swapped directors. JJ Abrams’s Jurassic World 3.
The Sarlacc pit talks!
With an “oy bruv” accent no less!
FWIW, the male vocalist in Jedi Rocks is a Yuzzum, a species native to Endor, so it would actually make sense for him to show up there.
Jabba the Hutt now farts at random intervals.
Wouldn’t be out of character with the several burps the film already has as well as the infamous TPM scene.
I don’t watch sitcoms. I need some greater plot to be invested in or if standalone it needs to be more than just comedy.
Would have been interesting to see JJ and Rian take up the script for episode 9, with one of them taking the director’s chair.
Wow, that would’ve been amazing. Honestly, can you imagine the two of the collabing the whole trilogy? So that way instead of a Sandwich trilogy, we get a consistent compromise.
The Force Awakens still holds up fine, IMO. Sure, it’s not revolutionary, but it’s a damn good time. The first chunk up until they meet Han and Chewie is absolutely phenomenal.
Now that I think of it, it makes no sense whatsoever. Never mind!
Someone on Reddit suggested replacing the contact on Canto Bight with Lando. I think that would make sense. That said, people might find it frustrating to be robbed of him appearing properly in the film.
Funny you’d say that, as someone whose username is made up of reference to two characters from the Sequel Trilogy.
You ain’t gonna be humming Time the way you do Time. 😉
Time, time, time, look what has become of me
