    I won’t watch another SW Show after The Book of Boba Fett. Could not give a fuck about Obi-Wan but then I’m only really a fan of Star Wars in terms of the original trilogy anyway.

    But Obi-Wan originated from the original trilogy.

    That was such a misfire of a show. My favorite episodes were the Grogu/Skywalker/Mandalorian heavy ones, which is telling since those completely sidestepped the show's titular character.

    But the current Obi-Wan is heavily influenced by the PT, not the OT.

    Yeah, but Ewan says he's channeling more of Alec for his performance as it's closer to ANH.

    I mean...maybe? We won't know for 7 days. Regardless, it's closer tied to ROTS and the PT than ANH as it stands right now. That might change over the course of the series.

    Star Wars? I quit watching after the first movie. Basic science is basic science. If you think a parsec is a unit of time, you have no business doing science fiction. Star Wars is not the space opera you're looking for. The Expanse, on the other hand, is well worth watching, maybe even more than TOS.

    SNW, for me, is ranking right up there with TOS. I just wish they had more of the funny stuff like TOS did.

    Good thing Star Wars isn't science fiction.

    To be fair if you're going to call out one IP for things that it does that are either non-scientific or scientifically impossible/inaccurate, then neither neither is Star Trek. ( both IPs are more Fantasy.);)

    I mostly disagree abour SW sequels, but I think NuWho really lost me with much of late Moffat and all odld Chibnal from almost the onset.

    Will Strange New Worlds be released on Amazon Prime under a paywall or/and Pluto TV?
