Only if he comes with beard care products.
Nom Anor's manipulations aren't exactly...wowing me.
"Hey, why don't you go to war with those people you're already at war with!"
Dangor was little more than a Level 99 Bureaucrat. Give him a couple of sudoku books and he's yours.
What shall Dangor want with Su of House Dooku's books anyway?
Oh. He was that sort of count.
Hey, when the galaxy is making your job easy, no need to put a lot of effort into it.
I finally caught the first episode of season five. For a series with notoriously spotty continuity (even within itself), I noticed an... odd... correlation factor. One that was probably unintentional.
Savage doesn't watch his feet.
No, seriously. I think we're supposed to get that his technique isn't the best in the world, he's just a powerhouse. However, it seems that guarding his feet is constantly screwing him.
-In Death Sentence, Judd enrages Savage by tripping the poor bastard, and goes on to mock Savage or lack of discipline.
-The only "hit" Adi Gallia is able to land on Savage is a blow to his femur, though she's apparently not strong enough to really don anything. When Obi-Wan is fighting him, he quite literally "spams" the knee blows, hitting him there a total of six times until it actually trips him (and later looks like it even breaks his leg), and quite visibly pisses Savage off.
Gotta love it when random insignificant crap aligns like that in Star Wars. So now we know Savage's weak point: stab him in the legs.
I actually really enjoyed the first episode, too. I continue to dislike Hondo, but Obi-Wan got a much needed break from being the writers favorite punching bag. And of course, there was very little reason they had to use Adi; they obviously wanted to give Savage a council member kill.
You are now my enemy.
I'm gonna love the irony if Savage goes down to Kenobi's blade just like Maul... it would seem the waist down was Maul's weakness and the only way he learned from it was to lose them and get mechanical replacements.
Your obsession with the Emperor's towncrier is most amusing!
Your faith in your friends is yours.
(kinda feel like that should be my equivalent of "How appropriate, you fight like a cow!")
The impression I am getting is LFL has apparently been trained to believe the films and any other work George Lucas is directly involved in are the only thing that matters.
...what are you even responding to?
I am not responding to anything, I am just pointing out something that has been made abundantly clear to me by the Canon Wars quotes site
@_Catherine_ brought up.
It would be amusing if TCW decided to contradict the ST for kicks. Or even better, the ST fit perfectly in the EU, but randomly contradict TCW in a manner that doesn't serve the plot (much like TCW is fond of doing )
Oh s***, we've got a canon war going on.
Anything that invalidates the osik that is TCW would be a good thing in my opinion, but if Mortis is the basis for the ST then there will be hell to pay.
"Then I'll see you in hell" - Han Solo
I coined the term for the period between PT and ST as the Canon Clone Wars, if that helps
Edit: Double post.
The Who-droid even acts like a Doctor. Good grief. And they call him "the Professor." And he's even got a sonic screwdriver-like torch thing.
I think he might have named-dropped some stuff in his Who-esque monologue(s), but he was talking a mile a minute and I couldn't tell.
I really enjoyed today's episode. Really had that Star Wars feel - that the galaxy had a history, that touch of mystiscism, without being too overtly magical, in the beginning, and a very nice sense of adventure. Very cool.
One thing I thought was a very nice touch was the variety of weapons the pirates were using - droid blasters, Zagarian blasters, republic commando blasters, and a whole lot of melee weapons - looked to be the same kind of weapons the nightbrothers used.
Apparently, they just don't make droids like they used to.
I liked seeing the flying saucer ship in action, and having space suit pirates guide the docking procedure was a nice touch.
Though I have two small problems-
1. Complaining about almost killing someone when you are planning to launch them into the vacuum of space seem hypocritical.
2. If lightsaber crystals are worth so much, why can't he take them from the lightsabers of the jedi and sith he has captured before. Or sell the lightsabers themselves - unless the crystals can be used for other purposes, then surely the whole lgihtsaber is worth more than crystal alone.
re: #2 - we just have to say that "kyber" crystals from Ilum (that is, the ones that respond to the Force or whatnot) must be more valuable than Adegan crystals OR that these crystals are only valuable before they've been Forcified and used in lightsabers.
The former seems more practicable than the latter.
That all went over my head.
Still don't like the idea of a droid professor teaching people how to build lightsabers. What happened to reading books?!
Is it just me, or did they try a little too hard to make the whole lightsaber aspect of the episode a bit too much like Harry Potter? The whole initial scene with the Professor was just like the wand shop part of the first Harry Potter movie.
I did like the usage of the TOR era Jedi/Republic symbol. Added to the ancient vibe of the vessel.
I noticed that too. You have to give the design team credit, they use so much established imagery in this show that barely even gets seen, just because they care. Like the continual and correct use of Aurebesh.
Don't some of the clones have them too, in prior episodes?
There were some interesting symbols on the Ilum chamber floor in the previous episodes, as well. Could've sworn that one of them was the TotJ era Sith symbol...
On continuity: I have been waiting for fifteen years to see an improperly-assembled lightsaber explode. Thank you, TCW.
