Ok, granted. He was the only redeeming factor in that book. Even Qui-Gon thought so.
He's not that great - the rest is just that horrible.
Someone photoshop a sign saying Jedi and pointing into the distance!
Oh man, how embarrassing.
I always thought that one was The Jedi Path.
Well, TCW just gave us Darth Maul teamed up with a bunch of Mandalorian Death Watch commandoes leading an attack on a Black Sun base and then subsequently raiding Jabba's Palace. Maybe it was a long, weird path to get there, but that was kind of awesome and is definitely not something we would ever have gotten without TCW.
Nope, you got that one wrong.
This is the Jedi Path:
There are a couple continuity-related season finale previews in the new issue of Insider:
- The red-armored Mandos from the CVI preview apparently have the title of "supercommandos". This could be a cool nod to the TESB novel.
- Korkie Kryze's model looks older and taller in the Mauldalore arc, suggesting that several years have passed since the Corruption arc. This could throw a hydrospanner into the works for Clone Wars continuity...
Also, it says he's "all grown up."
HE'S A CLONE!!!
No wait, we'd see a plot twist like that in the previews six months beforehand.
Normally I like to smooth over continuity issues rather than bring them to light, but I had to comment on this:
Jedi Prince Reference!
Though yeah that is very off unless the unspoiled is relative as in the “less of a wasteland” part.
They used to have the atmo processers on kessel turned up to full, so the surface was inhabitable, so maybe not as big an issue as it sounds.
There's definitely room for parts of Kessel to be relatively comfortable thanks to the oh Jesus I give up.
Obviously they're referring to the Kessel from the early comics (aka "Little Kessel" in the Atlas)...
Oh Second Kessel Run
Once again, perfectly salvageable if not for LFL's penchant for rubbing salt in the wound of inconsistencies rather than letting the retcon machine bandage things up.
Yes, I like TCW and think the continuity concerns are relatively overblown, but I think we can all acknowledge that it has a tendency to make more problems for itself than it strictly needs to (e.g. Ryloth).
edit: Seriously, though: artificial environmental conditioning, Leland, just let us say it's artificial environmental conditioning.
I enjoyed the Vizsla vs Maul battle in today's episode, but not much else
Sundari is like a massive KKK meeting.

Aaaaand exit Jon Favreau.

Yeah, I was wondering what Mandalorian fans thought of today's episode. And paging
@CooperTFN, cause the continued lack of diversity on Mandalore is comical. In a sad sort of way.
On a side note, I really hate the Duchess Satine. Cause apparently she is such a pacifist that she will not even defend her people during an invasion or attempt to fight back. Which is ridiculous. What sort of message is that?
Lastly, the standard Mandalorian guards unicorn really reminds me of the Eternian soldiers from Masters of the Universe (the movie, not the cartoon). Like the one worn by Man-At-Arms.
The fight in today's episode is one of my favorite bits from the whole series. Just awesome.
indeed! the fight was awesome awesome awesome. but i think that the one that we will see in the final episode of this arc will be even better!
edit: oh a i cannot stress enough my love for Sam Witwer's Maul! He's just a sneaky, sneaky badass.
They did the same thing with the Lurmen. It's dumb.
I wish the Mandolorian guards had been slightly more competent. Still, overall I enjoyed it.
I thought this Maul stuff was going to be the season finale though. Surely, even if the other episodes end up being higher quality, they could possibly be more gonzo and a better spot for a cliff hanger.
Especially since what is coming up is jealous Anakin and Ashoka doing something with Coursicant's crime ring.
Though there does seem to be some kind of air battle over Cato Nemodia that looks promising. Of course, most space and air battles in this show look promising but are way too short.
