Obi Wan is off to a good start.   The hook at the end of episode 2 is powerful.

absolutely cringe scenes when people are chasing Leia. Other than that I like it.

I have some continuity questions, however, it’s fine.

At this point, I just accept that Star Wars continuity is going to be spotty.

Pretty good show, so far.

Huge gripe. Those guys were like on crutches chasing her, and they got her eventually anyway. So just cut that crap out.

I'm just shocked Disney allowed the brutal violence

I've liked episodes 1-3. The girl playing Leia is great.

Numerous leaps of faith and/or logic, but what else is new? I loved loved loved ANH, and five minutes after cheering the ending my friends and I were picking apart some of the dopiest things. But we still loved it.

I mean, there's no way Obi-Wan should be able to get away from Darth as he did after the fire was lit. But whatevs. Keeps the series going.

The blocking of that scene was as bad as I’ve seen.  Just sloppy filmwork and that’s another reason it didn’t work for me.  Been pretty disappointed thus far

I'm fully expecting Doctor Aphra (played by Maya Erskine) before this is over.

I'm not the harshest critic when it comes to Star Wars stuff. I've enjoyed watching much of it over the years, maybe even most of it, so it's gotta be something gawdawful to turn me off. In a way, it's almost fun for me to be able to pick at stuff.

In ANH, why didn't the Death Star just blast the moon that was in the way and then annihilate the Rebel Base's planet? Because then there wouldn't have been any more movies or TV series or anything!

It's like James Bond. Just pull out an effen gun and effen kill him already. Stop putting him on a conveyor belt with a laser aimed at his onions. But no!

It was driving me nuts that the actress who played Obi-Wan's rescuer, Tala, was so familiar but I couldn't place her.

So I had to look it up. She's Indira Varma, who played Oberyn's lover Ellaria in Game of Thrones and gave the deadly kiss to Myrcella. She's been in a bunch of other stuff, too, including Rome and This Way Up. Did a very nice job as Tala.

Finally watched episode 3 of Obi-Wan.  The  final act didn't make much sense to me.

Hopefully the miniseries doesn't become a hot mess.  I had been enjoying it through the first 2.5 episodes.

Interrogation scene was really weird. Why in the world would a 10 year girl know the locations of a secret Jedi network.

I think because Reva knew she was taking Leia out of the Path, so she was already in a part of the secret network. But man...the Imperials really need to invest in faster interrogation technology. How slow are those articulating arms?

I thought this last episode was really good. Disney has done a great job with Vader in my opinion.

Agreed. In the past, the comics have been the main vehicle to explain how Anakin went from how Obi-Wan left him on Mustafar to the overwhelming Dark Lord we see to start A New Hope. Glad to see them expanding this to the visual mediums, which are most casual fans only window to the Star Wars Universe.

It will be fascinating to see how this is resolved.   It will have to be a longer episode.

They pulled it together nicely while leaving openings.   Reva 25 years in the future crossing paths with Ahsoka?

Really loved Obi-Wan. I love how they dealt with his own inner turmoil and growth, the relationship development with Leia, the path of Reva, and the on-screen fleshing out of Vader as a force to be reckoned with. It was handled incredibly well and I am interested to see what spins out of it into other corners of the Star Wars Universe.

Disagree about Reva.  The whole thing was convoluted.  But that may have been pacing issues.  Felt rushed and unbelievable
