    Obi-Wan Kenobi
    This was trash, worse than I expected. It's like they were trying to channel their inner CW, and the actress playing the main antagonist Reva cannot act to save her life. She was constantly trying to act tough and enraged, and it felt so hammy and inauthentic like she was a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers villain.

    The writing matched the acting ineptitude putting forth premises such as Reva discovered Anakin's twins right under Vader's nose without anyone suspecting anything, yet he knew of her ridiculous secret plot against him all along? And there are numerous near fatal close encounters for the young twins Leia and Luke (Vader's kids, who had been hidden away from him) yet no other inquisitor or Vader notices any of this? Also, why is the great Jedi Master who defeated Anakin/ Vader twice now, General Grievous, and Darth Maul constantly fleeing for his life from this nobody inquisitor, who Vader completely thrashes without trying? Obi-Wan is 2-2 with Darth Vader but doesn't dare mess with this clownish Power Ranger villain? And there is no way a subordinate disobeys and speaks to superiors the way she does without getting their neck snapped or chopped in half with a light saber within 10 seconds. Garbage.
  2. Yeah I had all the same problems with the show. You got to turn off the voice in your head to enjoy any of it.

    The Last Kingdom

    Take Vikings and flip the perspective to the Saxons and you have this show. It's set in the same time period and has many of the same characters.
