    Then you need to be more specific. "Good" & "memorable" are debatable and subjective. Every droid I listed met those criteria for me.
    :rolleyes: And...?

    It’s a good thing I have legends like the Thrawn Trilligy to fall back on.

    they did provide one of the few experiences of people actually eating on-screen in Star Wars media.
    So are evil empires, plucky farmboys, rogues with a conscience, haughty princesses who have to get off their arses and do some work for once, wizardry, parents having a change of heart, worldbuilding and visuals making up for real plot, etc. etc.

    All culture is repetitive.
    Passing observation: agreement.
    Oh, come on, there's better plushies out there than Porgs.

    Heads up, Netflix subscribers: Solo: A Star Wars Story is arriving on January 9th, and Rogue One is leaving on January 18th. I haven't seen Solo yet, but I'll probably take it out for a spin. I really liked Rogue One and may watch it again before it departs, if I have the time.

    Solo was surprisingly good. I was mad that I liked it. :lol:

    I liked Solo, though my dad was not a fan of it. It could be that I like Alden Ehrenrich (Solo) and Donald Glover (Lando) quite a bit.
    But either way, the movie certainly wasn't bad.

    I like both of them, but good isnt what I'd call it. It certsinly wasnt bad, but I think I would call it standard. Good bits, cringey bits, and nothing unforgettable.

    When you do, watch for all the allusions that are just a function of blocking and camera angles.

    The show was mind-numbingly boring and childish for the few episodes I watched it. That trailer gives it an entirely different atmosphere. Tempted to go back to it if it rings true but I wouldn't be shocked if they just took the highlights and the rest is just as bad as the beginning was.

    Your reaction to the program juxtaposed with your avatar is honestly really funny, Synsensa.

    That's the whole point, and I agree with Syn's diagnosis.

    Well it is geared for children, so...:rolleyes: That being said, it doesn't mean it couldn't be entertaining for adults. Unfortunately, I've had a hard time making it through the already aired episodes. I'm only up to Ep. 6 with the rest gathering dust on the DVR. I saw the action figures today at Wal-Mart and even those seem lackluster. That mid-season trailer does pique my interest again though!

    p.s. It's also been renewed for a second season.

    I mean, so were Rebels and (early) Clone Wars and they were fantastic.

    Hmm... I think I'm going to rewatch Rebels...

    Yeah, but this series was specifically marketed towards a younger audience than either of those shows. Anyway, the subsequent part of my comment, which you didn't quote, "That being said, it doesn't mean it couldn't be entertaining for adults." I am essentially agreeing with you.
