Watched first episode last night. I liked it, pretty much a western in space. Interested in seeing where this goes.

So this takes place between ROTJ and TFA?

Hedon I wanted that to be his sidekick going forward lol.
that would been neat but a bit typical with previous Star Wars films and series.

i kinda want it to go differently like...

I want him to be a lone wolf on the run with that baby, like a sci-fi movie I never saw about a world with nothing but robots and one finds what it believes to be the last and its on the run from the others for they want it dead

Yee, I got some firefly/serenity vibes from it.
I just said this on the D+ Reddit. This show scratches that space western itch that only Firefly did since first watching Star Wars "A New Hope" as a child. It's hard to say this after only 2 episodes, but so far it's just perfect, as it's both narrow enough in scope, yet big enough in universe! I don't want to jinx it though.

Episode 3.... wow. No spoilers, just amazing. It shows that Disney can make quality Star Wars stuff with the right director and material.

I never understood why people get all bunched up when there is a female role in something.

People treat it like a virus or something.

When there is a female role or isn't one?

Frankly I don't understand either outrage. Just let writers and directors make what they want, with the characters they want. I mean studios treat their properties as a product, so they might wanna look at demographics... but why does the public care, either way? Whiney b@tches everywhere! Stop freaking whining! There's more important things than your feelings of representation. Wah, this superhero movie has girls in it! Wah, this Star Wars movie has a black guy and a girl! Wah, this Star Wars show DOESN'T have girls! Wah, this sexual orientation isn't getting properly represented by Marvel! Grow up, people! For f@cks sake! It's stories! Let people tell stories without you trying to get on a soapbox that it isn't representing what you want! /Rant.
