This week’s Star Wars Rebels took a little bit of a goofy turn. The episode starts out with Ezra trying to practice using The Force to move a bowl. When the bowl finally rises, it turns out it’s just Chopper lifting the bowl. But that’s just the start of Chopper’s antics.
Chopper follows Ezra to his room, a room he shares with Zeb, basically just to harass them both. Zeb was trying to nap, so he’s not pleased, and he goes after them both. Hera is not pleased with them running around making a mess of her ship, so she sends them out together to pick up some supplies.

They gather most of the supplies in no time. They’re missing one item, a fruit called meilooran.  Ezra spots some Imperial forces with an entire crate of them. So, that’s where the adventure begins…to steal some space fruit.
This wasn’t exactly where I expected the episode to go tonight. Personally, I was hoping we’d finally get our first good look at The Inquisitor.  But, no. He wasn’t even mentioned.
Zeb ends up stealing a TIE Fighter and eventually rescues Ezra. Making sure Ezra says they are now even for saving each other’s lives. Ezra also sets free a family friend, who I’m going to call space Donald Sutherland. Space Donal Sutherland would not sell his farm to the Empire, so they destroyed it and imprisoned him. That was really the only dark moment in a mostly silly episode.

A couple of little fan-boy notes: I still get really happy just HEARING the TIE Fighters again. I didn’t know how much I missed it until it was back. It was also cool to see some dejaric being played by Kanan and Chopper onboard Ghost. I believe that’s the first time we’ve seen it played since Chewie and Artoo played in A New Hope.
It wasn’t terrible, it just kind of felt like a filler episode…but this was only the second episode(Spark of Rebellion was considered a “movie”).  Did the writers think this too? At one point, a Stormtrooper asks Ezra, “You did all of this for fruit?”.

Drive Shaft’s hit song, “You All Everybody” also appears in the background of an episode of Alias, another JJ Abrams creation.

Jack was originally to die in the pilot episode, and was to be played by Michael Keaton. Keaton backed out of the role after it was changed to have Jack live because he did not want to commit to a television series.

Forest Whitaker was originally cast as Sawyer, who was  originally to be a slick, suit-wearing con man from Buffalo.  The character traits were changed when Josh Holloway was cast.

John Locke and his father, Anthony Cooper are both named after English philosophers.  The actual Anthony Cooper was educated by the actual John Locke.

Ilana was originally supposed to be Jacob’s daughter, but the writer’s ran out of time to develop the plot, so she was killed.

John Hamm auditioned for the role of Jack.

The show was almost entirely shot in Hawaii, no matter if it was supposed to be on the island or a flashback.  In fact, in the Desmond and Penny picture, one of the buildings in the background was used as the hotel that Jin worked at in Korea.

When Ben Linus first appears, he tells the survivors his name is Henry Gale and that he crashed his hot air balloon on the island.  In the Wizard of Oz, Henry Gale is the name of Dorothy’s uncle, and The Wizard travels to the land of Oz in a hot air balloon.

Rob McElhenney of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia appeared on the show twice as one of The Others.

There are no characters that appear in every single episode.

Lance Reddick who played Matthew Abbadon, was initially wanted by the producers for the role of Mr. Eko, but he was unavailable at the time because of The Wire.

Vincent the dog was actually a girl named Madison.

In the season 3 finale, Jack visits the Hoffs/Drawlar Funeral Parlor.  Hoffs/Drawlar is an anagram for “flash forward”.  This was the same episode that shocked everyone with a flash forward instead of the usual flashback.

Mr. Eko was supposed to appear in the church at the end of the finale, but the actor who played him, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje,  turned it down.

Although Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion aired over a week ago, Monday night brought us what was considered the series premiere of Rebels, in it’s normal half hour format and time slot.
Much like in Spark of Rebellion, Droids in Distress wastes no time in reminding us that we’re getting back to the look and feel of the original trilogy.  The episode starts with a Star Destroyer passing overhead (a la A New Hope), chasing after our heroes aboard The Ghost.  They avoid them by making the jump to light speed, but are in desperate need of fuel and food. Because of this, they set out on a mission to steal some weapons in order to make some much needed money.

They hop aboard a shuttle to Garel  The crew pulls a con involving translation on Minister Tau. Her translators she is traveling with happen to be C3-PO and R2-D2, but Chopper gets involved to get the droids sent to the back of the shuttle.  Sabine then slips in to do some translating for the Prime Minister, learns the location of the weapons, and sends the Prime Minister to the wrong location, while she and the rest of The Ghost’s crew to the real location of the weapons.
We then learn the weapons they are stealing are ion disruptors. A banned weapon that was used in the massacre of Zeb’s species.  They end up getting busted by a bunch of Stormtroopers, which we once again see Zeb take great pleasure in pummeling.  The crew once again escapes back to The Ghost(with Threepio and R2 on board) and takes off for Lothal to deliver the weapons to their client, Vizago. While unloading the weapons, Agent Kallus and a crew of Stormtroopers(and some AT-ST’s!) show up because of a distress signal that C3-PO sent out.  What Threepio doesn’t know, but R2 does, is that they are actually on a mission to get the weapons away from the Empire.  R2 works with Sabine to use the disruptors against the Stormtroopers, and we once again see Ezra display his force powers to take down Kallus.


The episode ends with a big moment.  The Ghost return Threepio and R2 to their rightful owner, Bail Organa.  Organa kept his identity secret, paid our heroes, then gathers information that R2 obtained about the crew of The Ghost.  The rebellion seems to be becoming THE REBELLION!



A couple of little fun notes:  The pilot of the shuttle was Rex, who originally appeared in the old version of the Star Tours ride at Disney parks.  AND he’s voiced by Pee Wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens.  I have to admit, the internet told me this.  I never experienced the old Star Tours, only the new one.  I didn’t have an emotional connection to Rex that many viewers seemed to have, so, for me he was just a little too cartoony.  But, again, this IS a cartoon, and it’s ultimately for kids.  I have to remind myself of that sometimes.  There was also another fun nod to Ralph McQuarrie’s artwork.  In the back of the shuttle, if you look closely you’ll see a droid that is McQuarrie’s original concept design for C3-PO.

Overall, I didn’t think the episode was quite as strong as the “movie”, but there was still plenty of fun, and it has plenty of room to grow.  We still haven’t even really gotten a good look at The Inquisitor yet!  I thought he would pop up in this one.  Ezra also hasn’t yet begun his Jedi training from Kanan.  I have a strong feeling plenty of good stuff is coming our way.

My recap/review of this week’s Star Wars: Rebels.

eatgeekplay:

This year marks the tenth anniversary of LOST.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be doing a series called Looking Back on LOST, reliving what I loved, and still love, about the show.
Ten years ago a tv show captivated me like never before.  Okay, technically it was 9 years ago for me.  I started watching season one of LOST after it came out on DVD, while the second season was airing.  I actually bought the DVD’s without ever even seeing the show, but several friends had raved about it, and I decided to just give it a shot.  It was late at night and I decided I would watch the pilot and then go to bed.  That’s not exactly what happened though.  I was immediately sucked in.  That pilot is still my favorite pilot of anything I’ve ever watched.  It’s so intense.  At the time, it was the most expensive pilot ever produced.  It was money well spent.  Before putting that DVD in, all I really knew was that the show was about a plane crashing on an island.  I didn’t know how many great characters I was about to meet, and about how many mysteries were going to cause me be scouring the internet to read theories about what was going on.

That was maybe the thing I loved the most about the show.  The mystery.  It’s been very well documented that a lot of people were unhappy with how the show ended.  But it totally worked for me.  One of the most fun things about the show to me was trying to figure out why things were happening.  It’s really the only show I can think of that lead to countless discussions with friends, trying to figure out why things were unfolding the way they were.  Everyone had their own theories.  People were unhappy that not every little detail was explained in the finale.  Do you really need EVERYTHING explained?  Seeing every little thing ruins the fun.  Remember how we all thought it was going to be so awesome to actually get to see just how Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader.  That didn’t exactly turn out how we wanted either.  Sometimes leaving some things unseen is for the best.  Plus, this way, we don’t end up with Jar Jar.

Look, I’m not claiming it’s the greatest show of all time.  I’m just saying it’s my favorite.  I’m just like everyone else.  I absolutely loved Breaking Bad.  It was the closest thing to fill the void when LOST was gone for me.  But as terrific as it was, and yes, ultimately superior, it just didn’t have that totally obsessed factor that LOST had for me.  Breaking Bad would end, and I would think, “that was amazing”.  LOST would end, and I would immediately hop online and start reading people’s theories and reviews of the episodes.  The show was just so fun for the die hards.  So many subtle things you really had to pay attention for that will come back into play eventually.  There are things you won’t even notice about the show with just one viewing.  Re-watching the show after you have seen the whole series is quite fun.  People loved to accuse LOST’s writers of “making it up as they go”.  While I’m sure there is maybe a little truth to that, re-watching the show will prove otherwise.  John Locke basically summarizes what’s coming in the very first episode.  While explaining backgammon to Walt, he simply says, “Two players.  Two sides.  One is light. One is dark.”  We don’t see Jacob and The Man In Black until the final episode of season five.

I haven’t even mentioned how great these characters were.  Sure, there were a few you might have hated(Did ANYONE like Ana Lucia?), but I think John Locke is the greatest television character ever.  His first flashback episode, the reveal at the end might be one of my favorite moments in tv history.  The episodes that would focus on Locke were always my favorite.  Or were they?  That Richard Alpert backstory episode in the final season?  I was waiting years for that one, and it didn’t disappoint.  And then there was Desmond.  His episodes gave them both a run for their money.  I think season two might be my favorite season overall.  Introducing Desmond in the hatch was when things really, really got interesting to me.  What about Hurley?  Ben Linus?  Sure, you probably wished Ben had died several times, but you can’t say he wasn’t a great character.  And played so convincingly by Michael Emerson.  If an actor can make me hate someone THAT much, they’re good.  Really good.  Just sitting here typing all of this is making want to give the series another run through.  I need a spare 121 hours.
The four toed statue.  The numbers.  What’s in the hatch?  Is Henry Gale a liar? Why is Richard not aging?  How is Jack’s dad on the island?  I miss getting to discuss all of these things.    And as much as part of me wants to see some more LOST, I’m glad it ended when it did.  I don’t want it all spelled out for me.  I still like to imagine what happened.  I think we could all use a little more imagination these days.

This looks like weird torture, but it’s just the actor inside Ackbar getting some cool air into his hot costume between takes.  This picture screams “the 70’s”. Please, no eating inside the droid. Just…everything about this. Tiny, tiny Tauntaun. Inappropriate!Kenny Baker, the man in R2-D2, was also an Ewok!The wardrobe is a little off…Is this the worst looking alien in the cantina?Mardji the elephant getting into her Bantha costume. Even droids could use some shade when you’re in the desert. The only way Jar Jar gets more lame. No caption necessary. Now we know why The Emperor wore a hood. Still looks better than anything in the Holiday Special. Okay…the guy on the right?!?!Empire Strikes Back director, Irvin Kershner likes bad boys.Must have been a hot day on Naboo. Was he in Beetlejuice?You might recognize Tony Cox (Bad Santa) on the right.  Fun fact: he was also in Spaceballs. Darth Maul. Sith Lord/cameraman. Jedi casual. I can only assume he’s drinking Hi-C3-PO.
