    __________If I start this topic with an example,I think the Tv Show "Robin of Sherwood" from the early eighties's gonna be a good beginning.In the series,Michael Pread starred at the screen as Robin of Loxley (aka Robin Hood).After the end of the 2nd season,when the character portrayed by Michael Pread died,a new Robin (Robert of Huntingdon) emerged and claimed the name of Robin Hood (he was portrayed by the actor Jason Connery;Sean Connery's son).It was a successful tv show,and in my opinion,the main reason of its success came from giving the character Robin Hood a different and a new sight.And it wasn't just the character of Robin Hood which changed,but also the athmosphere of the story,the characters,the places...In fact,I may prefer to call it a "Re-Imagined Robin Hood",and the idea of creating a new R.H. universe that no one's ever seen appeared terrific.Until the beginning of the show,the audience had used to see Robin Hood in the sixties-style...A R.H. who always smiles,happy/positive-looking townsfolk and a consructive/shining sight for the places of the story.When the tv show hit the screen,it didn't just surprise the audience,but created a new,gothic and misty athmosphere from zero as well as the "Crossbow" tv show which was made at the same period of time.It was about the story of William Tell,and like Robin of Sherwood,it gave a very different spectacle for William Tell and the medievel athmosphere where the story took place.There were some scenes and dialogues in both tv shows which made them appear in a mysterious way and I do believe same mold of these scenes/dialogues might appear so cool for the SW tv show if it would be consructed on a dark background.(By the way,some of the actors that took part in Robin of Sherwood series also acted in the original/prequel SW trilogy.The actor that played Boba Fett (Jeremy Bulloch) in the classic movies acted as "Edward of Wickham" in the tv show.And in the show,John Abineri;who played the god-like character "Herne",appeared in a short role in E1.) As far as I remember;in one of the episodes of the show,a barber comes to shave Sheriff.At the haircut scene,the barber accidentally hurts him and he threats the barber by bidding "it is your Sheriff whom you shave,not a rabbit",and tells him that he'd be punishing him by cutting his fingers if he made that mistake again.Those assortment of dialogues were increasing the thrilling dose of the series.And some mysterious characters (like Herne) make the episodes appear in a darker way.In fact,the show has some common parts with the old SW trilogy.There are band of rebels hiding in a secret place in both SW and RoS.In RoS,a mysterious character named "Herne/Lord of the Trees" appears to Robin from time to time to give him advices as well as Ben Kenobi who shows himself to Luke.Before Ben is killed by Vader,he helps Luke in a normal-person form,but after his death,he appears as a spiritual image and continues to be his mentor.In RoS,Herne also appears to Robin sometimes in human form,sometimes as a supernaturel image.At E4,Ben gives Luke a light saber,and tells him that it was an elegant weapon used by Jedi Knights for generations.In the show,Herne gives a sacred sword named "Albion" to Robin in his struggle against the Nottingham Sheriff.Considering the Live-Action Series take place in the "dark times" (as mentioned by Ben Kenobi in E4),those things'd be useful for the show.I mean there'll be a rebellion,some rebels who hide in a secret place (as well as RoS) and a tyrant ruler who oppresses the galaxy.If there'd be remaining Jedi (there "must" be),it'd be so cool to see them takin' advices from the spiritual form of the Jedi Masters,not from the Jedi who lived in the same era,but also the Jedi who'd lived centuries ago in the galaxy before them.If the story is 'bout the "dark times",there should be some rulers/barons/counts/landlords instead of the top commanders who seizes the citizens of their territories for private gain like the nobels of RoS.There's just "one" territory in RoS,but in SW,there's not just one territory,cons

    That's an essay.

    Divide up your paragraphs to make it more readable, oh original poster.

    Suddenly all those "rules" that my English teach taught me make perfect sense.

    [face_skull] Don't be too proud of this grammatical terror you've constructed. The power to make a wall of text is insignificant next to the power of paragraphs.

    I find your lack of proper paragraph structure disturbing.
