This show doesn't have the same impact if you binge it, for what it's worth.

When they announced the new season of The Expanse they said that they preferred to release it weekly as it kept people talking about it for weeks at a time rather than generating a huge buzz but disappearing after a couple of weeks as happens when they release all the episodes at once.

I've got to say I agree.

I just remember being completely engrossed during season one (which I watched weekly), and then I binged season two yesterday and a lot of it fell really flat unfortunately due to the episodic nature of the series where every episode has the same formula (reminds me of the formulas for Star Trek episodes a bit). It doesn't really keep you engaged the entire time.

And people are f***ing terrible at not spoiling this show for some reason which doesn't help either.

Loved the finale but the uncanny valley in that CGI face was strong, we're still some ways off that being entirely convincing like.

Soon this will feel like a distant dream. Until then, may you rest in a deep and dreamless slumber

Tbh I am thinking the disney Luke looks better. A little more natural. I guess it’s all down to opinion, though.

The technology is clearly not there yet, but still, I’ll take it to see Luke in all his Jedi Master glory a few more times.

Now been confirmed that the Book of Boba Fett is its own series separate from Mandalorian with Favreau, Filoni and Robert Rodriguez as show runners
I looked into the eye of the Island and what I saw was beautiful.

I actually thought the Mandalorian Luke was way better the ones in the films. I found the Tarkin one in particular massively jarring at the time in the cinema.

Generally though I'd rather they just didn't bother with this CGIing in of old characters.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.
The are both white, both intellects, both middle class, both the typical 'people who would have thought could never do such a thing ', all traits of a Psychopath.
