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.

Pixar's Toy Story franchise continues to impress with its high-quality animation, imaginative plots, and sensitive voice acting.  The latest offering in the series is a Christmas special, "Toy Story That Time Forgot," where the old gang of Woody, Buzz, Trixie, Rex, and Angel Kitty cross paths with a very intense tribe of Battlesaurs during a play date at a neighbor's house.

TV Reviews: Star Wars Rebels, "The Rise of the Old Masters"

In this episode, Kanan tries to teach Ezra the ways of the Force, but it quickly becomes clear that not only is Kanan not a very good teacher, but he may not have been all that good of a student, either.  After all, as Yoda said, "there is no 'try.'"


Losing his temper and almost getting Ezra killed during a particularly complicated excercise, Kanan decides to attempt to break a legendary Jedi Master out of an impregnable Imperial fortress in order to foist the lad off on "the best teacher possible."

Series Stuff: Wander Over Yonder

The Husband and I got curious as to what "My Little Pony" producer Lauren Faust has been up to lately, so we decided to record some episodes of Disney's "Wander Over Yonder," which Faust is producing with her husband, Craig McCracken.  The show is about the adventures of two good-natured aliens who travel the galaxy in a soap bubble, helping people and foiling the machinations of evildoers--and having themselves a blast while they're doing it.

Review: Futurescape, With James Woods

The Science Channel has come up with a new futurist series called "Futurescape" with actor James Woods as the host. It has physicist Michio Kaku for "legitimizing" backup. It also is peppered with sound bites from various "futurists," "biophysics ethicists," and other such "experts."

To sum it up, it is another one of those paranoid drivel TV shows designed to scare you. The opening episode about advancing technology in the field of Brain/Machine Interfaces seems designed to drive up the price of stock in the Tinfoil Hat industry.
