Star Wars: The Bad Batch

What do you think/say, boys? Shall we give Disney’s Star Wars a last chance? How does this appeal to you?

“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch—a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army—each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.

“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” is executive produced by Dave Filoni (“The Mandalorian,” “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), Athena Portillo (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” “Star Wars Rebels”), Brad Rau (“Star Wars Rebels,” “Star Wars Resistance”) and Jennifer Corbett (“Star Wars Resistance,” “NCIS”) with Carrie Beck (“The Mandalorian,” “Star Wars Rebels”) as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer (“Star Wars Resistance”). Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer.

Produced by Dave fukn Filoni! Pheew! /me emanates sigh of relieve. He’s – together with Jon Favreau – one of the good ones. And the powerhouse/driving force behind all that is good about Star Wars.

In further good news/rumours: Kennedy to be ousted, Carano to be rehired for the next season of the Mandalorian. But before you jump for joy, these are unconfirmed rumours.


  1. OMgawd No! I can’t bear any more computer generated pixel people, toys or animals with celebrity voices. I have been binge watching The Expanse though. I like it and am about half way through all the episodes to date.

    • “I have been binge watching The Expanse”
      Oooh, lucky you. I wish I could watch this show from the beginning again. Well, I could, but I mean with a fresh eye. Unfortunately they are speeding things up in the last few seasons.

      And I understand your stance on CGI shows but once you got into them and watch them for the entertainment factor and forget it’s all just artificial you’ll know to judge them by their stories and characters … and in both regards Star Wars Rebels and hopefully The Bad Batch are a thousand times better than the real life movies. Weak unmotivated chars like Rei, Finn, Poe and Kylo Ren would’ve been killed off any of the cartoon shows after a couple scenes already.

      Look what chars they were using as guest stars in The Mando: Ahsoka fukn Thano and Bo-Katan Kryze. Why? Because, eventhough they were first cooked up in a fukn computer, they left a lasting impression on the audience. And what does the audience asked for as the next co-stars? Ezra Bridger and Sabine Wren. Both interesting characters with more depth and development than any RL Star Wars character ever. And Grand Admiral Thrawn! OMG, the thinking man’s villain. He came from a trilogy of novels, not even cartoons. He surely lived thru some interesting episodes during his career in the service of the empire.

      These are all carefully thought out and developed characters with much more stories to tell than a Mary Sue like Rei.


      • BTW, what about a follow-up on your first Linux story? Still happy on Mint? Or restlessly wanting to progress to a more bitchy distro? Or gave up and back to Windows? 😮


    • Zacly! Let Becca nag and bitch and whine and moan, the BB can’t be worse than RoS or the whole last trilogy. I guess it’s gonna be good enough SW entertainment while we’re waiting with baited breath for the next season of the Mando.

      And now on to start a lenghty Bricks and Bluebottles safari. Haven’t peek into your blog in a looong time. :/


      Congratz! You and every other SW fan have watched it all. Contrary to you we’ve finished it loooong ago and are waiting for the 3rd season. Just as we*’re waiting for a 3rd Mando season.

      “AND IT IS GREAT.”
      Yes. Great for what it is. Not as dark and dramatic as we wanted and expected it to be but rather lightweight and childish entertainment. I guess putting a 12 y/o know-it-all girl front, back and center of the group wasn’t helpful from a storytelling perspective.
      Anyhoo, the BB isn’t really meant to be for adults and we watch it as a guilty pleasure. And unfortunately it is a pleasure indeed. 😉
