  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    I'm glad Ahmed Best will be getting his due and look forward to what he brings, but I doubt the show will amount to much.

    I might have said that when it was on D+, but the move to Youtube is lowkey brilliant in the long run- WAY more visibility and possibility for popularity.

    Looks fun. Not made for me, but still makes me happy that it exists.

    It looks a little bit like The Crystal Maze with Richard Ayoade, but more kiddy and with rather less snark.

    This TV show is definitely going to destroy my childhood.

    Why didn't this exist when I was a kid?
    I won't watch this but it looks like something kids might love. And it's great to see Best back in a SW project.

    Good to see Best back in Star Wars. I might watch one episode for fun to see what they do.

    I would have killed to participate in this when I was a lad and I am glad it exists as an adult.

    But I have a nagging suspicion I would end up on some sort of watchlist were I to sit and watch it at my age.

    Maybe they didn't have a full season in the can when the pandemic lockdown hit so they moved what episodes they had to YouTube instead of Disney plus. Also I'm fairly certain that I read/heard somewhere that it is produced by the same crew that makes The Star Wars Show on YouTube so that also may have been a factor in putting it on YouTube instead.

    Looks silly, in a good way for kids. Nothing I'd watch at all. It would've made a good tie-in with Galaxy's Edge had they stuck with the original plan to make it non ST related.

    The kid in me still, I'd prefer a Dark Temple challenge - I'd rather be a Sith.o_O

    Forces of Destiny was a YouTube series that aired on tv and was eventually on D+, this may happen here too

    I think he would, basically sometimes with "canon" you take a "artistic license" to it. So Best's Jedi Master was probably a guy who put youngling Padawans through various training and trails and this would be metaphorically representative of it, if not hard factual canon "truth"

    Well the production design is definitely elaborate (that ship shot is great), Best has enthusiastic delivery (of course we already knew that), seeing a few kids repeatedly faceplant in the first round was kinda funny & hey Frank Oz Yoda voice cameo! Worth checking out the first episode but can't really commit to all of the episodes since it'll basically be the same (nicely designed) sets and challenges over and over. Someone tell me if anyone ever uses the Sam Witwer voiced Dark side shortcut
