Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 5

“The Occupation” Star Wars Rebels returns to Lothal to let Ezra attempt to save his home and complete the arc started last season. Lothal has been an important part of this show since it began. It’s Ezra’s home, it served as a base of operations of sorts for the team and ultimately it’s the place…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 4

“In the Name of the Rebellion Part 2” Star Wars Rebels follows on from the previous episode and continues exploring Saw Gerrera’s more extreme tactics against the Empire. The previous episode dealt with Saw’s tactics in opposition to Mon Mothma’s tactics which is interesting to a point but lacks in any practical examples. This episode…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episodes 1 & 2

“Heroes of Mandalore Parts 1 & 2” Star Wars Rebels returns for its fourth and final season and starts off by revisiting the Mandalorian story and give Sabine some much needed development. This show has had its ups and its downs but on the whole I would say it has been a very good example…

Kneel Before Pod – Spectacular Spider-Man

In 2008 and animated Spider-Man TV series started by the name of Spectacular Spider-Man. It was a well developed and respectful adaptation of the iconic Marvel character. It made such an impression on Craig and Aaron that they just had to record their thoughts on the show overall. They cover everything from the characterisation of…

“Zero Hour Part 2” Star Wars Rebels concludes its two part season finale with Thrawn’s forces launching a full scale attack on the Rebel base.

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episode 20

“Twin Suns” Star Wars Rebels returns to Maul’s vendetta against Obi Wan Kenobi as he heads to Tattooine to confront the source of his hatred. I’ve always thought Maul was an interesting character. He was someone I found interesting in The Phantom Menace and I’m glad he was reintroduced in Clone Wars. Maybe it’s my…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episode 19

“Double Agent Droid” Star Wars Rebels focuses on the droids as the Empire reprograms Chopper to act against the Rebels and expose their hidden base. On the surface it seems like this episode might be an annoyance given that AP-5 sarcastically complains most of the time and Chopper communicates entirely in unintelligible noises but it’s…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episode 18

“Secret Cargo” Star Wars Rebels tries to create another connection to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story when the Ghost crew helps an important political figure escape the clutches of the Empire. This show has often struggled when including important characters from the wider Star Wars canon in episodes. The biggest problem is that the…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episode 16

“Legacy of Mandalore” Star Wars Rebels takes us to Mandalore this week to finish off the two-part story of Sabine taking up the Darksaber, promising a lot right from the outset.
