#ScienceFiction Worth Watching: Obi Wan Kenobi #StarWars

I recently watched the Obi Wan Kenobi series on Disney and was impressed with the quality of the storytelling and performances. The series takes place ten years after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and follows Obi Wan as he tries to protect the secrets of the Jedi while living in self-imposed exile on Tatooine.

Ewan McGregor reprises his role as Obi Wan, and he delivers a standout performance as the iconic character. The supporting cast is also strong, with standout performances from Moses Ingram as a young scrapper named Katooni and Joel Edgerton as a familiar character from the Star Wars films.

The series explores the themes of redemption and responsibility, and it does so in a way that feels true to the spirit of the Star Wars franchise. The action sequences are well-done and the special effects are top-notch. Overall, I thought Obi Wan Kenobi was a great addition to the Star Wars universe and would highly recommend it to fans of the franchise. I give it a beer is optional rating despite the lack of dancing.

The Mandalorian: #SciFi #Streaming #Review

If I see Darth Vader’s helmet when looking at a mountain, does that mean I’ve watched too much Star Wars? Is there such a thing?

At any rate, The Mandalorian is an excellent series. Warning: it’s hard to watch just one. The story kept unfolding, and I was eager to see where it went.

The series takes place about 10 years after Return of the Jedi, and looks at the Star Wars universe from a different angle. It’s a bit grittier, a bit darker. I like that. There’s no Darth Vader, of course. He’s quite dead, but the Mandalorian visits familiar planets and some familiar characters pop in now and then. Plus, the baby Yoda character is really adorable. Who doesn’t want one?

The Star Wars universe is vast and filled with thousands of stories. This series put out by Disney is a great way to explore one of them. The ending of season 2 had me cheering. There will be a season 3, and I have to wonder where the story will go next. I will for sure watch.

You don’t need beer to watch The Mandalorian, unless you want one. It’s not boring, and it kept me watching the screen instead of doing something else. If you haven’t seen it yet and love science fiction, I recommend it. It’s streaming on Disney.
