Obi-wan Kenobi (show)

I’m curious to know how you feel after episode 6, where reva tries to kill a random child she knows nothing about, for absolutely no reason.

Reva is now officially the worst Star Wars character in my opinion.


This series was utterly terrible. It contradicted canon in major ways, contributed nothing to Star wars, was horribly written, and even the lightsaber fights were awful.

I give it a 1/10: not canon

never once did Obi-Wan use pocket sand, Anakin’s greatest weakness, in their fights.

0/10. fake star wars.

Well, I loved the finale and thought the show was pretty good overall. Yes, it had flaws, but they didn’t bring the show down for me. I thought their duel in the finale was one of the best lightsaber duels in Star Wars, and I loved the scene after Obi-Wan slices off half of Vader’s helmet.

I know I’m in the minority in this thread (although I’ve seen plenty of people enjoy it on other forums I’m a member of), but I enjoyed this show a lot. I do agree with the sentiment that it should’ve been a movie though. I think it would have helped with issues regarding pacing.

Bail Organa, the smartest man alive

Since you haven’t communicated, I’m beginning to worry you’ve been captured. Therefore, I’m going to go to the desert planet Tatooine to help the moisture farmer Owen Lars protect Luke Skywalker, who is the son of Darth Vader. You know, just like I protected Leia, who by the way is also the child of Darth Vader. I mean, you already know all of this, I just wanted to remind you in case you forgot. Make sure that if you are captured this message doesn’t fall into enemy hands, that would be bad. I’m not sure if this communicator has a delete function, but try stepping on it a few times, that should work. Bye!

Cinematographically, it was great. I can’t disagree with you there. Seeing the lifting rocks, the broken [spoiler], was honestly cool.

Choreographically, it’s got nothing on the duels from Revenge of the Sith, or even TESB. Those fights are amazingly choreographed, while this one is a mess. A cool looking mess, I can’t deny that, but a mess.

Also, Cinematographically might be the longest word I’ve used on the boards.

And she might be getting her own spinoff!

I love Disney!

Not great

Just realize I sort of posted my reply in the wrong topic, but it actually works better there:

I finally watched the last episode, and it was meh. Although nowhere near the prequel fights, Vader vs Obi-wan was a long waited upon quality lightsaber duel in live action. Kind of upset the grand inquisitor did absolutely nothing in this series though. Reva also should just be dead by now. Stab wounds mean literally nothing.

Feels like they kept reusing one gimmick throughout the entire show to force encounters, and let certain people split up over and over. Obi-wan was used as bait in the same way three times, the last one being a stupid waste. Why couldn’t Obi-wan have just stalled for a little while until the main ship got away? He could’ve jumped into hyperspace as soon as they were clear.

You know what rubbed me the wrong way about this series? The music. Like, if you were going to bring John William’s themes into a Star Wars show, this would be the place to do it. But you only get some in the last episode, and not even where it should’ve been.
Someone did a rescore of the Vader vs Obi-wan fight using Battle of the Heroes and Anakin Vs Obi-wan, and while it’s not perfect, it brings so much to the fight that wasn’t there before.
50% of a movie’s story is music, and having the score do the bare minimum instead of elevating the story is a crime.
