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.

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.

Star Wars Rebels: Path of the Jedi

After a long holiday break, the show returns with the best episode yet.


Kanan is struggling to train Ezra, and decides to take the lad to a Jedi temple--only he requires Ezra to find it himself, using only the Force to guide him.  As it happens, there is a temple hidden in a mountain right there on Lothal (handy...) and Ezra listens to the stones and says they will only open for him and Kanan working together as master and padewan.

Star Wars Rebels: Out Of Darkness

This episode featured the two female leads, Sabine and Hera, who until now have been barely getting any screen time, so I had high hopes for it.  Unfortunately this was solidly "meh" from start to finish.


I think they just don't know what to do with Sabine.  In this one, she played the part of impatient, angsty teen daughter against Hera's patient "we tell you what you need to know" mother figure.  About the only plot advancement we get is that Sabine used to attend the Imperial Academy.

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."

TV Series Reviews: Star Wars Rebels "Fighter Flight"

In this episode, Ezra, Chopper, and Zeb get on each other's nerves and threaten to destroy the Ghost with their sparring, so Hera sends them into town for some supplies, including a particular kind of fruit that she knows very well doesn't grow on Lothal.  Ezra and Zeb bag far bigger quarry on this particular snipe hunt.
