    Awesome. Where to start.... I wonder if the Katooni-Hondo thing at the end is supposed to foreshadow anything... :D

    @KenobiSkywalker

    Katooni seemed to like him and long to go with him. I wouldn't call it much more than that. I'm a big fan of adopted fathers and daughters however. Maybe. Maybe she'll walk out on the Jedi and go with the pirates life. Honestly she'd have been better off if she had gone with Hondo. Lol, she reminds me a bit of Kiara from TLK2. I can almost hear her singing Kiara's part in We Are One. - "If there's so much I must be, can I still just be me, the way I am. Can I trust in my own heart or am I just one part of some big plan?" Damn you circle of life.

    Some order 66 intervention from Hondo would be cool, but I doubt we'd ever see that.

    Nah, Seerow, I saw it more as Katooni realizing "Hey! He is a nice guy after all." And Hondo realized the same thing and gave that glance to affirm her faith in humanity (or weequay...ity). I should watch it again, as it was my favorite Hondo moment ever. Also reminded me of Long John Silver from Treasure Planet/Island. I dunno, I like when the so-called bad rogues turn out to have a heart after all.

    Yeah the whole, "Faith in the galaxy" is another good way to look at it. Great moments for Hondo for sure. But she sure seemed to consider wanting to go with Hondo. Would have been a smart move in the long run. I'd be all for Hondo adopting her. ^_^;

    Oh boy, not like this. x.x;

    Ugh.

    I almost mentioned my worries for something like that in my review of the episode: that bit at the end where they acknowledged the bond made between the two of them opens up "possibilites" for some people, who knows when HondoXKatooni pairings will start popping up and there will be fanfics about it?

    Even if it isn't, a dozen depraved lurkers have seen this thread and are now industriously sketching away with their pencils and styluses.

    Well, this one ain't my fault. I already said 'No!", Qbert.

    Eh, it was probably inevitable.

    Prepare for the deluge.

    This is probably a good time for the new episode thread.

    Considering the hands-on behaviour of the new episode's quartermaster character towards the droids...

    1.39 Million US viewers, the lowest this season. That's a pretty big drop from "Bound for Rescue"...

    It was a pre-Thanksgiving weekend, that could be a major factor

    You know the most disturbing thing about Kodomo no Jikan? The fact that it was written by a woman.

    Rule 34 is as universal as it is inflexible, my friend.

    You guys have it all wrong: Hondo is Jack Sparrow if Jack Sparrow had been based on Ricardo Montaban instead of Keith Richards.

    Thanksgiving killed us. By tomorrow the kiddie numbers should be out. Wonder if those will be any better.

    Disturbing over all, not terribly surprising.
