    I never got into Ewok hate either. I like Ewoks. Cute teddy bear creatures that try to roast Han and Luke in order to honor the Great God 3PO. What's the problem?

    Mortis, however, was full of a lot of "prophecy" and "destiny" bull**** that I can't stand. It made my pro-science pro-realism head hurt.

    I liked it because it got more into the characters' destinies, and the Force, and all the chosen one stuff.

    I like Bombad Jedi
    Heroes on Both Sides is one of my Top 10 episodes
    Mortis is fantastic

    Heresy. Jawas and ewoks do not belong in the same sentence. Jawas can pimp their rides, ewoks can put a saddle on something.

    I am going to get my most polarizing opinions trophy one ways or the other.

    +1. Most of my TCW-watching friends consider that arc to be one of the best. They are definitely in my top 10 as well.

    I had to talk a friend into watching the series after he tried to start watching on the Mortis arc. I got him into it none the less.

    Maybe cause aside from the tribute to Anakin that it is, it is also a "I AM SORRY about midichlorians " letter from Lucas himself.

    It's a tribute to my least favorite part of Anakin's story other than the second half of ROTS.

    I'm agnostic and I don't believe in the concept of "destiny" at all, so there is that.

    Agreed. Religion in general has confused me in SW, any way. In S1, a "God" is mentioned at least twice that I remember:

    "Oh my god..." -clone
    "..this godforsaken planet?" -Dooku

    So.. is it the Force or a god, Dooku?
    Or is it just a writer error?

    Lol off topic.

    We do have Han saying "I'll see you in hell!" in ESB.

    Well, if there's no one religion on Earth, apply that to a fantasy / sci-fi galaxy..

    Anyway, I just thought Mortis was interesting. I just liked that the show was FINALLY getting into the chosen one prophecy, more into the Force, and all the symbolism and other-worldly stuff that's open to interpretation.

    It wasn't perfect, but it got more into the big things than other episodes. Too bad what actually happened in it doesn't seem to matter at all.

    There's nothing more intriguing to me in Star Wars than the Force and its nature, so I can't help but love the whole Mortis trilogy even though I don't think its second two episodes were as perfectly executed as Overlords. It's like a feature-length Dagobah dark side cave scene.

    I really don't have a problem with "humanizing" Jabba with the inclusion of Rotta. Makes him a better character IMO, rather than a typical, one-dimensional villain whose only defining trait (to me, at least) is "HO HO HO ME SO EVIL ME KILL EVERYONE DERP DERP DERP". :p ;)

    I don't have a problem with Jabba having a son he cares for, but Ahsoka constantly calling him Stinky is annoying.

    Thank God we're past that, though. :p

    The novelization had an interesting take on that which I don't recall being explored in the movie. There was a lot of focus on Jabba's mindset that Rotta was "his," especially since Hutts are hermaphrodites and no mating is required to reproduce.

    I thought Stinky was cute.

    Even if he is, Ahsoka is now 17 going on 65 so she probably won't do anything so immature and imperfect as to call him Stinky.

    I don't get the big deal about Landing at Point Rain. I mean, it wasn't a bad episode or anything, but left to myself I probably wouldn't even put it in my top ten.

    In that case, and I mean this in total honesty, why do you like Star Wars at all?

    Seriously, Star Wars has never been "hard science fiction". It's not even really science fiction in a traditional sense. Star Wars is more like fantasy genre stuff in space. Spirituality, prophecy, destiny, and all that kinda thing a is a deep, core part of Star Wars, and frankly, complaining about that in Star Wars is like complaining about big muscles in He-Man or about people shooting stuff in GI Joe. I mean, sorry, but that's just the kind of story it is, and either you accept it or you don't; and if you don't, maybe this just isn't the right story franchise for you.

    If you're looking for hardcore scientific realism in Star Wars, well, no pun intended, but I think you have some unrealistic expectations of it.

    Again, I don't mean to give you a hard time about this - you like what you like. I just have to admit to being a little baffled by what you've said.
