Out of the Blue

Disney's stewardship of the Star Wars franchise has been a mixed bag at best, and I've found myself pretty unmoved by the hype of recent projects. But the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is different. The premise and tie-in to the previous movies is a strong draw, and it only took seeing about two promos to suck me in. The first two episodes debut today, and I am risking disappointment by allowing myself to get pretty excited about watching them.

Watched both episodes of Obi-Wan last night. Well, technically in the wee hours of the AM this morning. It's better than The Book of Boba Fett. It doesn't feel as good as The Mandalorian.

Spoilers below:

Any time you bring a kid in as one of the protagonists, the show is already in trouble. I am also not super thrilled with Inquisitor Reva. She feels like a carbon copy of Trilla Suduri from Jedi: Fallen Order. I'll give it a couple of more episodes to click with me before making a final judgement.

On the other hand, part 1 of Season 4 of Stranger Things just dropped.
