When I started the first of these three episodes, I had the bad feeling that this batch might be a bad one. As it turns out though, the trio was just a slow starter. The episodes just getting better as they went along. And the more I watch this series, the more I realise that the series’s original characters are far more compelling to me than the already established ones. Which kind of makes sense if you think about it, but hey, let’s actually get into the episodes before I really go off on one.
We’re into the swing of things now, and this time I’ll be talking about three episodes, two from season 3 and the first episode of season 1. Why those three in particular? That’s because I made the incredibly arbitrary decision to review these episodes in their chronological order rather than their airing order, thanks to the helpful list on Starwars.com.
Unlike the previous two episodes and the three that follow, these three have almost no connection to one another, so I have a feeling I might be in for a long on here as I discuss the themes, the newly introduced elements and how the series repurposes the content from the old canon into this new continuity.
