There was some serious excitement in our home this weekend, as my daughter and I prepared to watch Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal, and then the Season Two opener.
Star Wars: Rebels may be my very favorite storyline in the Star Wars universe, and Season 2 starts off with a bang! Rebels rejoins the dissatisfied crew of the Ghost several years after the fall of the Republic, as their struggle against the Empire continues! This is a dark time for the galaxy and a worse one for the Rebels, as they've caught the attention of Darth Vader.
This is no later-in-life, maybe considering the path he's taken, willing to hear Luke's pleading Darth Vader. This is Vader at the very prime of his evil! A Vader who orders mass murder like it is just another Tuesday. The Vader we knew existed but barely got to see. Darth Vader.
This is my favorite cast of Star Wars characters. The writers are doing an amazing job at growing them, and bringing back some folks we really wanted to see. I haven't been this excited about a TV series in a while. C1-10P, Zeb, Hera, Sabine and Kanan Jarrus are wonderful! Ezra is your stock Star Wars whiny teen dude about to become a Jedi, but they seem to be trying to develop him.
Siege of Lothal is a wonderful 44 minute mini-movie that sets the new season up beautifully. Season 2 is now airing Wednesdays on Disney XD, but as I watch everything via the internets I'm streaming from Amazon.
We'll be waiting for each episode!

In the early days of the web, everyone wanted a .com domain for their site. As a result, all the good ones got snapped up. But .com no longer has the cachet it once did. In fact, many new businesses and individuals are opting for other top-level domain extensions. One of the most memorable is […]
