  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.

    These are getting progressively more unwatchable.

    Yeah, because if there’s a time to rage about Rey’s skills, it’s at an animated show where everyone’s the shape of a ball.

    No rage here. If this is non-canon then I have no issue with it. But if the fact that Rey avoided being sucked into a machine that sucked the back end off a star destroyer that was further away behind her (and she avoided being hit by all that) is canon, then I call that god mode ridiculous. Imagine what that would look like with a realistic visual depiction. It would look something like Galen Marek's force abilities in The Force Unleashed.

    Yeah, but it’s not a realistic visual depiction...that’s the point.

    I just described what happened without using any visual depiction. Do you change what happened to enable a realistic visualisation? Do you reduce the canon to just the fact that Rey was scavenging a wreck and some rivals were stealing her finds, and that she prevailed in the end?

    Yup.

    It's the same logic that you can take with something like The Freemaker Adventures. The broad strokes happened, but the minutia is different due to the medium.

    Dude...a bit of unsolicited advice. You need to be more selective in what you choose to be annoyed about. This is a super-stylized child’s cartoon where everyone is shaped like a ball, and squeaks like a mouse. So obviously, even if it’s canon, the implication is that the real events would play a bit differently. Including that the characters don’t all turn into BB-units and sound like rodents.

    Thank you but the advice is not necessary as I am not annoyed at all. I merely say whether I think something is good or not. I liked the BB-8's story and Chewbacca's story (which as I said before, actually made me laugh). I found Maz's story to be weaker, and Rey's story to be the weakest so far.

    Even though I have regularly watched these, every time I see the title "Star Wars Roll Out', I never cease to somehow expect the thread to be about some new sleeping bag or inflatable bed.

    These are getting almost no views now. This one with Fin is not good at all.

    1000 is pretty decent for something like this. It's not exactly a series people are waiting at home for constantly pressing refresh.

    I'm mixed on this, I understand that we are trying to bring in as many fans as possible and this I geared to a much younger type of fans. But one animation that kicked butt was the Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures. I wish they concentrated several episodes on the prequels and the sequel trilogy. Titmouse really did an awesome job there. Would have liked to see more and maybe a series commissioned by them. Niko and the Sword of Light was just pure awesome and my daughter loves it.

    I need Elan Sleazebaganno to explain this to me. But, sadly, he rethought his life. Now, there is no one who can comprehend it.

    It was about how saving zombie droids that tried to kill you can help your career.
