As some of you may know, several elements and ideas within the Star Wars saga are quite similar to those originating in this series.

Are the apparent similarities just surface level ideas or seem like more than just a coincidence?

The official site of Jean-Claude Mézières has some comparisons. I’m not convinced, they’re very superficial to me.

Speaking of overrated shows, I just started watching the first episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. Most of the jokes are silly rather than funny. I just don’t get surreal humour. To me it feels like it goes into r/iamveryrandom territory. I much prefer Fawlty Towers as its humour is more “structured” if you catch my drift.

It’s very English and very half a century old. If you’re not into non-sensical humour, you won’t get it I think.

very silly indeed

Cool bike girl only makes me more interested in this series. Plus I feel George Lucas would probably really approve of her bike.

(She’s played by Sophie Thatcher by the way)

So, as it seems we already saw Black Krrsantan, is this girl Dr. Aphra? Or does it not fit with the timeline? (I haven’t read the comics)

(Jedit: checking with Wookieepedia, Aphra would be 33 at the time Boba was Daimyo. Or it’s a flashback, and it’s why she looks so young)

And the gift is an awful entry level turntable? Yikes.

I see them on Amazon (without the Lucasfilm logo) for around $70. I dig it. Wish they’s send me one.

The case may be cool but the mechanical part (the actual turntable) is utter plastic crap. (as seen on the Techmoan YouTube channel)
