Star Wars Rebels: Lothal Under Seige

The Husband kept grousing about how this show has jumped the shark by bringing in Grand Moff Tarkin and Darth Vader.  In actuality, their presence serves as an entre'acte to move the team of the Ghost from Lothal to the Rebel Fleet.

After busting Kanan out of the clutches of the Empire, the Ghost crew repays the Rebels by trying to secure a cargo of military-grade forcefield generators from an Imperial cargo convoy.  They succeed in liberating the cargo, but the generators are not part of it.

We've waited thirty years for this movie, and it still won't be arriving in theatres until December, but Disney's stock jumped when it released a new trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

I just hope it's good.  From what I've seen so far...I'm not too optimistic.

TV Series Review: Star vs. The Forces of Evil

Mama Fisi's picture

We just watched the first four episodes of the new Disney TV series "Star vs. The Forces of Evil." That's four 12-minute shows, folks. That is how fast and frenetic this show works.


Star Butterfly is a wild child princess from another dimension who receives a magic wand on her 14th birthday and promptly destroys her castle with it--by accident, of course. Sometimes Star is a brilliant kick-butt fighter, sometimes she's a klutz, but most of the time, she's Pinkie Pie hopped up on too much sugar.

Star Wars Rebels: Fire Across The Galaxy

The season finale of Rebels was satisfyingly exciting.  Even Chopper comes off as a hero.


The crew of the Ghost stages a daring raid on Governor Tarkin's personal Star Destroyer in order to rescue Jedi Kanan, who is being tortured for information by the pasty-faced Inquisitor.  Their plan requires that they steal an Imperial transport ship, which they do thanks to some jumping-flea-fu acrobatics from Sabine.  This sequence was the weakest part of the episode.

Series Review: Gravity Falls

I'm a recent convert to the fandom of the Disney series "Gravity Falls."  This is some of the loopiest, most creative writing to come along in a very long time.  The laughs are deep and the creepy bits are genuinely creepy, and the shows are stuffed with little sight gags, in-jokes, and homages to classic sci fi and horror movies of the past.  And getting Neil deGrasse Tyson to play a hyperintelligent pig is pretty awesome.

Fan Film Friday: Kim Possible--A Very Possible Christmas

Republibot 4.0's picture

Tis the season for Christmas specials, and here at Republibot, we too can get into the spirit of the holidays.  While an episode of a TV show isn't really a "fan film," there are enough references to classic holiday cartoons of yore childhood to qualify as a "fan film."
