On top of Obi Wan, they could’ve made Reva such a cooler character too. A youngling who witnessed all her friends die and is now hunting down the man who killed them while pretending to be helping him is such a cool concept. But instead we had to get a predictable redemption storyline where she does awful stuff throughout the entire show and then one good thing at the very end to show she’s now good.

​@Jack Alope That's my read on it. She was rendered toothless by her inability to defeat Vader. But her conclusion was indeed very confusing. Why go after Luke at all? They'd need to set up her discovering he was baby Vader more than just finding a garbled transmission mentioning boy and Tatooine.

7:51 Hands down it is indeed the best scene in the entire show. Ewan Mcgregor’s acting during this scene, his display of emotions and the line delivery of “I’m sorry, I’m sorry Anakin, for all of it” really hit me to my core. Obi-Wan feels responsible for Anakin’s downfall and he feels he could maybe get Anakin back, but he then realizes Anakin is truly gone. The way Ewan Mcgregor’s amazing acting emits Obi-Wan’s emotions was amazing and heartfelt.

I wanted an in depth character study of Obi Wan post Revenge of the Sith. Imagine the regret of all the things that went unsaid to Anakin and the guilt that he played a part in his student's downfall and to an extent Padme's death. THAT is what I wanted this show to be about. Toss in some Owen, Beru, Tusken Raiders, and some Qui-Gon and Vader with a few well placed flashbacks and you'd have a pretty compelling story for most fans. But this is Disney Star Wars and we have to have action action action and a little child character that Kenobi has to save and grow attached to, even when it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense lore wise. I was really disappointed with most of this show. The highs are high, but the lows are very low and drag the whole thing down. Maybe I'll buy the Kenobi novel and give that a read now to see how it compares.

i’m sure you’ve gotten it by now but after reading it, i truly wanted the show to be that kind of story. obi wan on tattooine, trying to live in exile and hate himself in peace, trying to not step into the position of the protector that he’s so used to playing. then eventually remembering that he can’t stand by and let innocent people get hurt, he has to carry on what the jedi stood for even if he can’t present himself as a jedi. But also having VADER be the reason for that arc being carried out would’ve been the cherry on top. The closure that they got with one another in the finale was the best part of the show.

I thought we were getting Samurai Jack Season 5 with a jaded, bitter Obi Wan coming to terms with both good and folly of the Jedi Ways during the early days of the Empire, heck, you could've thrown the Crimson Dawn Syndicate and Darth Maul as the literal embodiment of a past that continues to haunt him... But I guess Disney just wanted The Last of Us in Space Ver 6.0, what a shame.

If this was like the book of boba fett, a character people like but don’t necessarily care about then I’d brush it off as dumb fun. But when you bring back Hayden and Ewan after nearly 20 years for two very prominent characters that almost every star wars fan enjoys above a superficial level then you need to bring your A game. Unfortunately, Kenobi was super mid and that’s terrible for the content that’s revolved around it.

My feelings about “The Mandolorian” exactly. They gave us “fresh and new” and then immediately dragged the character into the story of other characters we already know. With “Kenobi” there just wasn’t enough risk taken, but that’s the trap they got themselves into.

The thing I loved about Mando was that it was fresh and new. It was great exploring a different part of the star wars world detached from the standard lore. I was really hoping that it would branch of into new adventures once grogu went with Luke. Ok, chapter ended, this story arc is complete. Mando can do bounty hunter things and continue to develop his own character and story. Sure check in with grogu briefly and see how he's doing. Instead that just had to bring it in and tie everything back to the Skywalker saga. Very disappointing. It would have been really exciting to continue to explore the scum and villainy of the universe.

Genuinely wish they had had the guts to do a “final season of samurai jack” style feature with this. Imagine Obi Wan on the run, hunted by the inquisitors (or equivalent). The pain of having lost his entire word, way of life, his friends and comrades and masters weighing on him. The guilt of having a close friend and student of his having been so failed by both the system and obi-wan himself that he became a monster that he dismembered and left to burn at a molten shoreside to stop his slaughter. The realization his inability to deal the final blow has led to a galaxy-wide purge of those who used to be children in his care. He runs from planet to planet always having to look over his shoulder, deprived of the chance to discuss any of his frustrations as he knows it would put others in mortal danger. The weight of all that guilt and pain crushing every moment that isn’t filled with fear or rushed desperation to keep from being caught. Sure, maybe it’s not strictly story accurate, but it would be so thematically compelling and in-line with the “last of the old world” status that obi-wan has. I think it would have been amazing to see him struggle between keeping up the principles he was raised with in contrast with the crushing failure that they led him to.

@A mosca na véia Yea those are the only good aspects of the show. Whenever it explores Obi WAN’s character. All the other crap is a pointless distraction with no tension. I’d have appreciated a scene where Obi Wan has an actual breakdown and let’s all of his pain out. He does this with Vader briefly. I just would have appreciated a little more subtlety. Plus they didn’t explore anything that happened in the clone wars. I’m not all about callbacks and whatever, but it’s a show that expanded on his character a ton and I’d like to see how he’s doing now after all of his trauma, instead it focuses entirely on events that happened in the prequels.

@branden marik Uhmmmm... That's Obi-wan's arc on the show? I mean, he doesn't undergo a meltdown, but he is completely broken down, dejected and hopeless . He failed his best friend and gave him to Palpatine on a silver platter. He is unable to reconnect with his Master after Yoda tells him how to do it. Owen pushes him back and also blames him for Anakin's fall. The Empire won, the last Jedi are being hunted, he has to work a shitty job and knick the meat for his ride home and he can barely feel the Force anymore. Then he finds a way to reconnect with himself, finally find closure for Vader's fall and also become the Jedi Master we all know from the original trilogy.

@Randall Jones When Solo was first announced, yea I was pretty excited about it. Wasn't the only one either. Keep in mind Solo came out two years _after_ Rogue One, which was generally well received. Hell, even Lucas is on record he enjoyed that movie. I liked it too so I had good hopes for Solo. And imho, it wasn't that bad. Not great but fun. After The Mandalorian everything became a tv show and that isn't working either. It's already hard to write for a fandom that's deeper into the lore than you will ever be, but I don't even get the feeling they're even trying at times.

I really do think that, as far as shows go, they could fuck up the other shows, but this was one that they had to nail and they just didn't bar from a couple of moments. I kept watching it thinking, "I want this to be better". There is so much dead air and then you get to the good juicy stuff and then just more dead air, back and forth. Predictable and just like an flat escalator of a series, just moving along, and then occasionally being like "oh shit, we have literal Obi wan Ewan and Hayden Anakin" for a second, and then back to Ewan just doing very little for a while.

Similarly to how RDJ was the best part of Iron Man 2, or Andrew Garfield in Amazing Spider-Man 2. And while Hayden himself didn’t have as much screen time as I hoped for, his few scenes weren’t bad imo. The conversation they had in part 6 was honestly one of the best things Disney Star Wars has done recently.

@A mosca na véia The problem with Luke Skywalker in TLJ, was that he is a complete opposite character from what he was in the original trilogy. And it’s all because of dumb decisions he made. Why would he try to kill his nephew, instead of comforting him and helping him not turn to the dark side? You can argue by saying Luke’s character in TLJ makes since, but just because something makes since, doesn’t mean it’ll make a good story. And why would a leader like Holdo not tell her team the plan? I wouldn’t trust a leader who wouldn’t tell me any plan at all.

​@Trevor Phillips TLJ wasn't after your childhood, mate. It's not anti-fan service. It is an authentic story with a core and themes, unlike the other movies that make up that trilogy. The majour beats of the plot (also very conspicuously the same beats most TLJ haters have a problem with) ultimately serve a coherent narrative, from Snoke dying to Rey nobody to Poe being an idiot and having to learn not to act like one. And don't forget Luke, that is fallible and human and relatable unlike his deepfake doppelganger that got some fans crying.

Let’s analyze how Reva got the communicator in that second to last episode. Obi-Wan hands off his stuff to fake Jedi so that he can sacrifice himself to the bad guys to buy enough time for everyone to get away. So he goes out, has a conversation with the bad guys, eventually gets back inside and is like, “Hey, I’m back, let’s get outta here!” Fake Jedi drops the communicator because…I guess he’s just clumsy, then Reva finds it after getting stabbed. The writing throughout just seemed so sloppy and forced (pun intended).

I love how Obi-Wan is supposed to be keeping a low profile, yet in the first episode he has a conversation with Owen on the street about training Luke, and Owen retorts by saying "oh, like how you trained his father." The inquisitors are on the planet, there were people standing behind them when they had this conversation. So much for keeping a low profile. Obi-Wan might as well have just run around Tatooine shouting, "HEY EVERYONE, I'M A JEDI!"

like so many other people, i was pretty enthusiastic when i first heard about the prospect of this show a couple years ago (obi-wan and ewan himself are two of my all-time faves, so i was hardly going into the series looking for a hate-watch). i wanted to be optimistic, but you can imagine my disappointment when it comes to that chase scene with leia through the forest - it’s one instance of how this series treats its audience with such little respect, in my opinion. i mean, i realise that the writers were saddled with this problem from the get-go given the show’s premise, but it’s hard to feel any real tension or excitement regarding characters who i know cannot be seriously harmed before the events of the original trilogy, like when leia is threatened by her kidnappers or when obi-wan is faced with any kind of trouble whatsoever. maybe with an engaging screenplay and a clearer focus on character development this problem wouldn’t feel so obvious (because it really shouldn’t have to be a problem whatsoever), but with the show’s lacklustre third sister antagonist as an obvious example, i feel like this wasn’t realised at all. i wish i could experience the payoff of that final heart-to-heart between vader and obi-wan, but i really cannot bring myself to watch anywhere past the second episode because of how damn mid it all is.

Thing for me with this show: I loved everything Vader related throughout it. I thought Hayden Christiansen did a great job as Vader and put a really strong performance in. Unfortunately, lots of the show was spent fleshing out unnecessary parts of the story. Reva NOT being killed when stabbed and exposed by Vader and the Inquisitor just for her to complete a pointless redemption arc that we knew had to happen was infuriating, especially because they kept cutting away from the main fight, which was comfortably the best fight in the show. The plot wasn’t great, but it was ok to suspend your disbelief and just enjoy the characters, even if this show could have taken a more interesting arc for its main story. 7/10

7:50 The best moments are these short bits. And like you said, it feels like they tried to write a story around this idea. We need more short things. Just short disconnected scenes like Visions but based in canon (it doesn’t have to be but that helps it get views). That’s why I think this new CW prequel/spin-off might be one of the best things we’ve gotten since the Siege on Mandalore.

You nailed pretty much exactly how I felt after watching this series, and Disney Star Wars as a whole. It’s all just far too reliant on fan service and callbacks. I’ll admit, there’s some genuinely good moments, but they’re just too far and few between to keep me invested. And speaking of which, it’s so hard to be invested in something when you already know the fate of all the major characters. Even when they try to present a situation where any of the main characters are in danger, you already know they’ll be perfectly fine.

I absolutely love Star Wars, seeing Ewan and Hayden made my day. I even teared up in the last two episodes because of some of those personal moments with the two characters. That said, there are a lot of issues and I don't see a point in dancing around them. Leia was written as though she were an adult which was just weird and off-putting. There are a bunch of cheesy scenes and downright funny low budget moments (especially in ep 4), and everyone agrees this feels like a great concept they stretched out over 6 episodes. That's been every SW show so far for me; there's some great writing for one episode and then they drag it out along a whole season. That really sucks being a lifelong SW fan, I've also generally been very positive with the Disney sequels and things. I just don't think I can get down with these television shows, our kids shows growing up were the two Clone Wars series' back in 03 and I believe 08 for the widely known CW series. Those had some of the best writing in the entire series, so there's really no excuse for poor writing here. Writing is free.

Reva’s half of episode 6 is so contrived it’s almost hilarious. She hears a garbled message from Bail talking about a boy on Tatooine, somehow concludes that this kid is a son of Anakin, walks off her stab wound, and goes to kill him because she thinks Vader would care whatsoever if she does.

@lilHamster97 That doesn't make sense, as she was the one who rejected Obi-Wan's offer to work together. She has no reason to be angry with Obi-Wan. She also has her breakdown, crying about how she failed her fellow younglings only after she lets Luke live, meaning she thinks she failed to avenge them by doing so. Why would she think killing Luke would avenge the younglings if she didn't think he was somehow connected to Vader?

Overall I really liked this series, but Reva just assuming that the Owen Bail talked about had to be the exact Owen she'd run into feels very contrived.

Completely agree with your arguments, would however rate it only 5/10 since the majority of the series was underwhelming to straight up garbage and one and a half great episodes can’t make up for that. The fight/conversation between Vader and Obi-Wan was one of the best scenes I have seen in Star Wars for a long time, though.

I think also to keep in mind that this show appeals to the crowd that went to theaters to watch the prequels, and many in that age group has now evolved to start families and such (me being one of this demographic) and they want to incorporate themes about learning to parent and mentor someone, and it's an adjustment phase which is why you see some other shows (Mandalorian being the most prominent) showing the initial struggles of taking care of someone vulnerable and being responsible for their well-being.

At best this show was a 7 for brief brief moments. In its entirety I’d give it a 5/10 strongly propped up by McGregor and Christenson’s acting. The script was so so bad and didn’t need to be. They forced Leia into the show when they didn’t need to. Obi and Vader could have crossed paths much much more organically just from digging into Obis guilt and Vaders obsession with catching him. The scene of Vader merking villagers would have been a good way to get them together the end no kidnap plot necessary lol then you could have it be a Vader chasing Obi and Obi leading Vader away from Luke. End of story but the story didn’t ever need to happen anyway so there’s that

It's strange. I was super into it for the first two episodes, but it really just kind of petered out for me as it went along.

I’ll admit, there’s some genuinely good moments, but they’re just too far and few between to keep me invested.

@Kris SciHist Or it's the writing being inconsistent. I can't blame the show's writers entirely though since Anakin in the prequels, even after he turned evil, felt like a completely different character when compared to Vader in the original three films. That probably put the Kenobi writers in a tight spot. Also it's more like 10 years between Kenobi and Empire.

@Matt Ward To be fair, this show takes place 10 years after Revenge of the Sith. Which means The Empire Strikes back takes place, like, 15 years after this show. And people grow a lot in 15 years. So Vader may have not been "super mature" yet in the show. Maybe he still had a part of immature Anakin within himself at this point.

Honestly this video explains my problems with the movies as well, for me the solo movies are pretty damn alright as most of them try to be something a little bit different. I actually surprisingly liked Rogue One and The Last Jedi, the most out of the Disney films. But every single other piece of media is too much of the same story, I legitimately want to see a different story told in the Star Wars universe, I seriously would have loved the Mandalorian if it was a tough guy just living in a harsh galaxy and doing bounty hunting without any child character for him to look after. Like I'm hoping that the Yoda TV series is a stronger one that shows us more about the character behind the Grandmaster of the Jedi, like maybe he feels responsible for not catching Darth Sidious at all and because he is on Dagobah, it can be a really personal series.

This sums up exactly how I feel about the show. So many interesting themes that were minimally explored, and were overshadowed by a story that felt pointless. Cameos and callbacks are cool for a while, but fresh and heartfelt narratives are a lot more valuable and definitely more memorable. Take, for example, the Siege of Mandalore. Peak Star Wars, and all of that is attributed to good writing, equally good direction, and solid technical work.

I wanted an in depth character study of Obi Wan post Revenge of the Sith. Imagine the regret of all the things that went unsaid to Anakin and the guilt that he played a part in his student's downfall and to an extent Padme's death. THAT is what I wanted this show to be about. Toss in some Owen, Beru, Tusken Raiders, and some Qui-Gon and Vader with a few well placed flashbacks and you'd have a pretty compelling story for most fans. But this is Disney Star Wars and we have to have action action action and a little child character that Kenobi has to save and grow attached to, even when it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense lore wise. I was really disappointed with most of this show. The highs are high, but the lows are very low and drag the whole thing down. Maybe I'll buy the Kenobi novel and give that a read now to see how it compares.

At first I was super excited because I thought this was going to be an anthology series! Like the whole rescue episode was just the 1st one and then they had him do different stuff every episode. Like the clone wars. I think the best way to sum up Obi-wan is that I just had it downloaded to watch on a plane ride. I think what I want from Star Wars is a mini series that is actually about the war (any of them) and is like a gritty Band Of Brothers type show. Wouldn’t be as popular with the KIDS but I’d sure like it!

I found this to be a love-hate show, enjoying parts of it immensely and absolutely despising others. I had so much enthusiasm for a kenobi show trying to survive during the empire but wanting to keep upholding his jedi values. The internal conflict was a goldmine waiting to happen and it's tackled in like 10 minutes in the first episode. Then it's 2x fetch quest with a generic bunker down and a duel with vader. About it. It had so much potential, with my absolute favourite characters in all of star wars. The only scene i truly enjoyed was the display of vader's power when he demolishes Reva and yet, it's a plotline for reva to survive getting stabbed a second time. Like for god sake.

I think "character learns to take care of other people younger than self" is just a weird comfort zone for whenever they start a new project. The Clone Wars movie was about saving the little hut kid, and the show started out as a way of humanizing Anakin by making him care about Ahsoka. Rebels was at least partially about Ezra's master (Canaan?) caring about Ezra. All of the shows you listed use it as a plot device, and then to top it all off Rogue One is about a bunch of people learning to care about each other before they all die. Weird long-running trend

@Ijiikieruさん but does that mean it has to be like that forever? Mando S1 was perfect, gratifying star wars with no hokey little kid bullshit. Need more of that

The prequels were the same way. This isn't new to Star Wars.

My favorite part of the whole show is when Obi Wan says "Hello There" and Luke is like "General Kenobi"

Obi-Wan findin his inner peace as a story arc has some incredibly powerful moments that I think the show did really well. Builds well to his final confrontation with Maul and passing into the Force. Also baby Leia did a shockingly good job feeling like Leia. Weird they were in the same show tho.

I will say this Marcus. At first when i found your videos i disagreed with you a lot and found you a little annoying until I grew up a bit and now I agree with a lot of the stuff you say. Dont get me wrong its still my own opinion i dont agree with 100% of the stuff you say but typically if you like something so will I. Thats why you have my subscription and viewership. You went from a youtuber i found kinda annoying to one of my favorite creators on the platform. So thanks for that and im looking forward to see your thoughts on The Boys Season 3.

Based on your analysis, it seems that since there are no loose ends, they couldn't surprise anyone and since they couldn't surprise anyone, they couldn't tell something new that's why the other shows got more funding.
