Oh boy, Kevin Murphy will be salivating to see the adventures of "Bob"-a Fett.

Except that the political intrigue is completely lost thanks to George Lucases incredibly boring writing. Now if Tom Clancy wrote the political parts... :D

The bonus here is I seriously doubt he's going to take the time to write every episode himself, so there's at least a chance to find someone who CAN write political intrigue, or for that matter romance or comedy.

Lucas has said he's going to give a general outline of what should happen and then pretty much wash his hands of the whole business while directors and screenwriters and actors make it happen. At least that's what I've glommed from his rare appearances where he talks about it. Wouldn't worry too much about Lucas' involvement. I'm really REALLY looking forward to this. An ongoing Star Wars TV series has been a lifelong dream of mine. :^)

However, no matter how good it is, I'm convinced there will be a large camp of people who believe the series bites because Lucas lost it 20 years ago, even if he doesn't have much to do with it. :^)

Well hopefully it won't be entirely a pile of shit.

I'd say you just described the people who inhabit these forums.  They're generally a one-note lot when it comes to Lucas. So, I generally just ignore those posts.

Well....you wouldn't convince me that the Prequels were any good....or that changes to anything other than the effects in the Special Editions were necessary....and I only give him 1/4 credit for the Indiana Jones movies because I think that's really Speilberg, for better and worse....

But if you want to name something good he's done since the first half of RotJ, I'm willing to consider your arguments.

I hope it is good, I like the Star Wars universe for the most part but my gut feeling is it won't be all that spectacular,

Let's see....



(about a Star Wars TV show....not Lady Kenobi's lymph nodes)

I really don't care about her lymph nodes, either.

I'm actually kind of excited by the potential of a TV series that doesn't focus on the characters from the two movie series. Maybe we'll finally get a lead female Jedi for a change, and other more interesting characters. I've read a few Star Wars Expanded Universe novels and they've been OK. But I'd like to see some of that on the screen too.

Well, here's hoping it'll be watchable.

I can't really imagine it sucking, like say, regular TV does. Because Lucas doesn't do anything conventional. At the very least, it will be a whole new level of innovative suckage.

That's OK; they don't really care about you, so we're good.

Im going to give it an open minded viewing.  It could really go either way at this point since there not a lot known about the show.  I think it would be cool to see a Rogue Squadron show, in my opinion.

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

I agree (have you read the xwing series of extended universe books by any chance?), but since the series is being placed between eps 3 and 4 I don't think we'll see much of that unfortunately. But yeah, I'm like you, I'll keep an open mind until I see what they actually produce. It could go either way. I really do hope for more interesting Jedi characters (male and female, as well as different species). But it'll need all kinds of interesting characters to make the show worth watching, along with a good story of course.

Seriously. He agreed with me in some other thread about something innocuous, but even that made me feel dirty by association.
