Star Wars Rebels
Thu Oct 09, 2014 2:26 pm
  • Anybody watching? I watched the first episode last night (a double episode/movie titled "Spark of Rebellion") and I loved it. I liked The Clone Wars well enough but this really starts to have the feel of the original trilogy to me. Definitely looking forward to how the story progresses and how it ties in with A New Hope and beyond.

    Here's the extended trailer for anybody interested. The sound mix is funny on it; all the voices are loud but the sound effects and music seem to be really low in the mix. This was not the case in the actual show.



    Lots of other videos and info on the official site: http://www.starwars.com/tv-shows/star-wars-rebels

    No it's live action. You're thinking of something else.

  • BTW I just finished A New Dawn which is not only the prequel novel to the Rebels series, but also the first novel in the new Star Wars expanded universe. It was ok. It's really hard for me to get into new Star Wars characters, but I'm determined to try as hard as I can.

    Better than getting yelled at by your wife for putting the turkey baster in the wrong drawer.

    You should see my toy collection.

    Were we ever? You said watching cartoons is better than being yelled at by your wife, it seems you were talking about yourself the whole time.

    PS I never said anything positive or negative about grown men watching cartoons.

  • Fun, imaginative, and childish hobbies (such as watching cartoons) are good for our brains, they activate the "learning" neural pathways in your brain, activate your dopamine receptors naturally, and help prevent early-onset dementia. It's called having fun, and your brain needs that to be healthy.

    I think grown men who watch cartoons and have childish fun will live longer and enjoy healthier lives as a result. Your brain will thank you in the long run! Keep your childish imagination alive as long as possible, it's good for you! :)

    Incorrect. In fact I did say "your" but in saying "your" I most definitely meant "your" and not "my".

    Well I certainly hope you take the occasional moment to watch and enjoy a cartoon as the good Dr. Gruber has, as you can see in the post above this one, just recently recommended. And I concur with the good Doctor.

    Oh I thought you were speaking generally from experience.


    I don't mind animation as a medium, and don't think any less of those who watch cartoons. I was just stating facts.

    Why are you putting his wife's turkey baster anywhere?

    And to keep with the theme...anything that makes you smile is a good thing, and cartoons are great stress relievers.

    I guess it wouldn't really matter in that case since they have already been lobotomized. :P

    I want you to know I really tried to drum up some kind of troll response that would be just completely over the top. However, something about my 40th birthday this last weekend has just taken it out of me this week (probably excessive alcohol consumption). But it's the thought that counts, right?

  • Speaking of Star Wars, anybody playing Star Wars Commander on Android or iPhone? It's basically the Star Wars version of Clash of Clans. Pretty cool.
