    86: The Call, Homecoming, & The Honorable Ones

    86: The Call, Homecoming, & The Honorable Ones

    As we inch towards the end Rebels Season 2, some things are becoming clearer and clearer. First, Ezra's whole animal empathy thing is going to keep happening. Second, we're definitely going to get some 'different rebel cells have different goals' stories as the series continues. And third... they are definitely, absolutely going to try to redeem Kallus. It's a bold strategy. Let's see how it plays out.

    85: A Princess on Lothal, The Protector of the Concord Dawn, & Legends of the Lasat (Rebels 27 - 29)

    As we return from the midseason finale, we get a trio of episodes that represent the three major emerging categories of Star Wars Rebels stories so far. One is a story driven by a cameo from the larger Star Wars universe. Another is a big swing at some brand new worldbuilding and an exploration into tone and style that is totally brand new for the show. And the third is, unfortunately (and of course), a lackluster Sabine episode that doesn't even have the decency to give her credit for her own good ideas. Ah well, maybe next time!

    84: Stealth Strike, The Future of the Force, & Legacy (Rebels 24 - 26)

    Folks, we did it. After a middling pair of episodes last time and with what looked like a connected pair of stories coming up, we decided to call an audible and increase our episode count to three!
    So, today, join us on a journey across the galaxy: First into an experimental imperial weapon with its origin in the EU glory days of old, then on a planetary hunt for force-sensitive babies, and finally a return to Lothal where a troubled Ezra Bridger finally gets some answers about his family.

    After Season 2's strong start, the crew of the Ghost is finally settling into a lower key rhythm, which has both ups and its down. On the plus side this week, we get a loving look at the B-Wing (an all time great Star Wars ship design) and some more Sabine and Hera backstory! On the other... well, that backstory ain't all that great, and we're really feeling to limits of these one-off episodes.

    82: Always Two There Are and Brothers of the Broken Horn (Rebels 20 - 21)

    This is a week for introductions and reunions. First, Rebels offers us our first real look at the Inquisitors left behind by the now fallen Grand Inquisitor. Then, as Ezra begins to doubt his place in the burgeoning rebellion, he stumbles into an old acquaintance of ours. Yes... he's back. Yes. Him. Hondo Ohnaka. And wouldn't you know it? He just happens to be looking for a new crew member,

Bigredlobster ,

Natalie Watson is me

episode 82: trying to describe a specific tiktok but recast with star wars characters but not being able to remember a single word from the tiktok but knowing that it’s gonna be a hilarious joke if you can find the right video. i was crying laughing by the end and let’s just say that’s not an uncommon occurrence with this show. y’all are the best

iamEricTremblay ,

Why even do the show?

Why make a podcast about Star Wars when some of the hosts haven’t even seen all the films or shows and the others have only seen them once or twice in their lifetime, and from what I’ve heard don’t seem to like anything about Star Wars and complain about every little thing??? But sure, slap “Star Wars” on your podcast to get all those cheap clicks…

gnomeovandyke ,

a true joy!!

i fell out of love with star wars a long time ago, and it is truly thanks to this podcast that i’m finding new ways to appreciate something that had long been ruined for me by other experiences with it. their analyses and discussions bring so many things into new light and heighten the experience of thinking about star wars exponentially. thank you for letting me recultivate a childhood joy with fresh eyes
