    I have definitely felt the same but the last two eps have actually been decent.

    The show is so horrible. I don’t even know the character names. Can’t bother to learn them. I just call main kid the idiot. I actually liked and had hope the show was turning around with the S2 opening but nope. I did like the “curse” Ep and this past Ep with Pirate Girl saving the day.

    This show has had a history of looking like it is going somewhere only to then once again go back to horrible. It is coming to an end very son though now, so hopefully it is full steam ahead from here.

    Just read the summaries for the last five episodes and no spoilers, but, I’ve given up on hoping that they’ll focus on Kaz’s family this season. That holomessage from Kaz’s dad was just shoehorned in as an excuse to not have Kaz deal with losing his family.

    I like that we have finally had three good episodes back to back, hoping it finishes on a real high.

    Episodes are produced well in advance of airing so Oscar could have recorded his lines a while ago.

    I think I've determined why I have had such a problem with this season. It's completely ignored anything that could be remotely interesting about this time in favor of just (for the most part) boring and repetitive fetch quests. We know that at some point during the season it passed TLJ because we see Hux visit that refueling station. Since he never left Supremacy during TLJ that episode had to have been after Crait. The First Order has had this massive power shift with Snoke being killed and Kylo taking over and yet the show never even mentions it. It never mentions that Phasma who was an actual character on the show last season is now dead. It never mentions that the Resistance has been nearly wiped out or deal with Leia's message to her allies. I mean why is this show even called Resistance? It has only the slightest connection to that organization.

    I think that's the primary problem. But I fear all of that is because, for one reason or another, they were not allowed to.

    I agree and I think that was a really bad decision on LFL's part. Either delay the season until after TROS or just don't worry about these non-existent mysteries. We know Snoke is dead, we know Kylo has taken over, we know the Resistance will have to rebuild somehow. Don't hamstring your writers and just let them tell the damn story of what happened next.

    Yeah, I think that the Mandalorian makes this case the most strongly, actually. If you create non-mainline stories, let the creators run much freer than you'd normally be comfortable with. If there's a continuity issue as a result, somewhere down the line, just deal with it the way George dealt with it: ignore it.

    You guys have nailed the problem with it. They should have called it Colossus or something.

    The mystery box approach to storytelling sucks. It also ruined the first half of Agents of Shield’s first season, and as a result, the best cable TV Marvel show (that isn’t called Legion) sort of lost a lot of fans out of the gate.

    Sure did and by the time it finally crossed over with Winter Soldier and got REALLY good, it was too late for many to return.

    And some of us kept watching beyond that and wondered why they stopped with occasional references to the movies.

    I'm starting to wonder if the rumors are true, that they were planning at least one more season, but they cancelled it 'cause of bad ratings.

    Well...that looks cool! And given how well this show has picked up in the last couple of episodes, I suspect they may just stick the landing of an overall average dive.

    I must say I hated this show until 3/4 of season 1
    Now it's much better.

    Ya know, it'd be nice if the space battles had a little more going on than "spend a few minutes chasing one another until the plot demands the scene changes and all the TIEs are immediately destroyed"

    Have ships land glancing blows, show some sparks and smoke and shield flares to show that the First Order ships can take a few punches before popping while giving the heroes some illusion of being in danger
