A hokey religion, you might say?

Star Wars used to be a rare treat now they like buses. Not good this one, pointless.

++SPOILERS++

Given how awful the prequel trilogy was, it's impressive that they managed to make Hayden work in this series as a dark character, and not just a moping, winge-ridden, angsty twat with bad hair. Impressive! Most impressive!

Third Sister teleporting to Tatooine was a bit of magical plotting. Please - nobody needs to explain to me how it could be done - I can invent stuff myself. The trouble is that it was jarring, because last time we saw her she had been impaled by a light saber, couldn't walk, had been abandoned by her logistical support network and just didn't seem like she'd be able to teleport to Tatooine, or bandage herself, or survive.

No doubt there'll be a graphic novel or mini-series along at some point to tell that untold story.

That's just an example - there are loads of plot contrivances that don't really pass muster - and it detracts from the positive aspects of the show. If your ship is being chased by people who are shooting at you, why is there time for everyone to have long drawn out conversations about the situation. The sense of peril is utterly lost. In Empire, they managed to have their chase cake and eat it by having the Falcon hide in a giant asteroid - then you get the Tie-Bombers to ramp up the tension while the characters have a conversation.

Luke's "escape pod" was about half the size of the ship it came out of. After he kicked Vader's butt, he escapes the planet - and the orbiting Star Destroyer is nowhere to be seen. Did they pop off for lunch? Gah!

Like Shark said: a curate's egg.
