I hate JJ Abrams. That is all.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

He didn't keep true to Star Trek, but I really hope he does Star Wars justice.

I'd rather take the prequels. Let the series die already.

I watched it as it aired and it was definitely a colossal waste of time.

Why do they have to make Episode VII? Can't they just start over with something new in the Star Wars universe? They can still use characters from those movies but lets move on to a different storyline.


That's the beautiful thing about Star Wars. Lucas didn't just create a story but a universe. Why they keep going back to the same well when there is nearly limitless potential to do new stories in the universe is beyond me. Lucas' ego really held things back in that regard. I'm guessing Disney feels they have to start with an Episode 7, but hopefully they get to the point where they're willing to abandon the Skywalkers and try something new.

It's too bad the Seven Samurais rumor turned out to be false. (Though, I guess that really only denies Zack Snyder's involvement.)

Not to mention the show only went 6 seasons. This just looks like the kind of thing you say because you've seen other people say it on the internet...not because you actually watched the show.

Ding, ding, ding.

OT but Clone Wars is having a phenomenal season this year if anyone isn't already watching. Some really good writing even if they're ripping off a lot of plot points from the original movies heh. Only bad arc so far has been the droids and that fucking frog thing that's worse than jar-jar.

I'm only intrigued by the concept of robot goat legs Darth Maul...

Lol, I'm loving the fact they're finally digging into Black Sun. That and Dengar (bounty hunter) made an appearance last episode.

Abrams seems like a good choice. I loved Star Trek, and Super 8 was solid as well.

The only bounty hunter I remember in the game was IG-88, an assassin droid. Perhaps you're thinking of the main character, Dash Rendar?

Ah, that's it. Dengar is the old man mummy bounty hunter then if I remember right. I Base this all on my vague memories of the toys and games.

I'll believe it when J.J. himself or his reps confirm it. Like the IGN article stated, Abrams had already been approached for the role and seemed pretty vehement in not wanting it.

I stand corrected. It has now been officially confirmed.

Goat legs are gone. . .

The episode that aired on Saturday was really good. The story arc they are doing is well done. The last one with the droids was light hearted, but I really didn't mind it.

The direction it's taking is a little overambitious for a character like Maul though. It's still a really good arc, but it's a hard sell for me.
