    Unlike you I have a few friends I trust their opinions on, and we collectively like to make sure something is good/bad before we make opinions/consume something. With Disney almost everything has been a miss lately so one person who feels the best about a show watches it and tells the rest of us if it is worth it. So instead of 5 of us watching the show, one does, meaning they get 20% of the viewers they could have gotten. Kenobi as I was told was a complete mess that fucked with lore and was nonsensical at many points, so hard pass.

    The only "marketing" I have done is WHEN ASKED told people I would not recommend watching it if they like the character Kenobi, hardly making them money.

    I know this is above your normal level of thought, but figured you might want to be informed for once, before I go back to ignoring you. Enjoy the taste of crappy media.

    Ya you totally haven’t been watching
    The show you clearly were just posting as the episodes came out because your “friend” was telling you about it and you also totally didn’t post how you justify your hate watching through account sharing in another thread.

    If your going to try and lie atleast don’t leave such an obvious trail, lol.

    ... and any others in this thread (you're in double digits for a series you haven't even personally seen) is all based on what a friend that clearly hate-watched the series said to you? Either that, or you're full of shit, watched it yourself, and are just trolling. Jesus Christ.

    You're a literal joke, not worth anyone's time. Especially when your opinions supposedly aren't even your own lol Yet you'll sarcastically post about not getting opinions from YouTube videos when someone else is called out on it, holy shit.

    No, it is based on a friend I trust, we would get in discord, and he would laugh/cry and tell us about the garbage he just watched (friends are people you trust, kind of like a teacher but more your equivalent, and you have built up trust that when they tell you things you trust them). I know you little Disney drones can't comprehend that people couldn't like a show they made, but alas it is true. The only joke is you and the rest that think this is good media and continue to allow Hollywood to produced sub standard crap and get away with it.

    As for the rest, man you are one ignorant guy. Back to ignoring a thoughtless consumer. Only joke here is the garbage tier shit Disney is creating.

    You're trying SO hard here, and all it's doing is exposing you.

    Seriously, no one is impressed by the internet tough guy act. It just makes it clear that you're trying to cover your BS.

    Nah, I'll call Disney out at every opportunity I see lol I even gave Kenobi a 6/10, IIRC. This is you just being defensive.

    The only joke is you and the rest that think this is good media and continue to allow Hollywood to produced sub standard crap and get away with it.
    More empty defensiveness from a guy that didn't even watch what he's crying about lol

    As for the rest, man you are one ignorant guy. Back to ignoring a thoughtless consumer. Only joke here is the garbage tier shit Disney is creating.
    Ah, the ultimate in defensive takes. Got caught out with all your bullshit, so have to run away and put the things that threaten you somewhere you can't see them. Bless you. But sure, I'm just ignorant

    God the best part is me as a “thoughtless consumer” have been worse for Disney then You “totally not sharing accounts to hate watch” as I’ve watched every show other then the bad batch on steaming sites so unlike you I’m not even giving them views.

    But atleast I can sleep well knowing my lack of viewer ship is made up by people like you who can’t help but watch what they hate and make sure Disney knows they are watching by going through official means.

    Well some people here imply that "this is the way" to listen to youtubers for opinions. They are probably Jedi, so figures. Dark Side is ultimate power.
    All right, gentleperchildren, let's review.

    First of all, I thought Kenobi was a 5.5/10 show. Slightly better then Boba Fett. It got better with the last episodes but still wasn't great The youtuber comment I made was to the one poster here who likes to share those bug eyed youtube videos, none of them I clicked.
    The result of that comment, however is great. While I thought it was pretty obvious it was directed to our Belgian treat poster, a lot of other people felt attacked by it. So I guess where's smoke there's fire.

    This TV show was never needed. Sigh. Ruins all that I had in my mind.

    I stopped watching after first 2 episodes and all the youtube clips have only reinforced my POV.

    This is the part that makes me squinty-eyed at the people who are bitching about Kenobi while pointing at the Prequels and Sequels.

    We actually don't know what happened, in large part. The Prequels give us a very narrow view of what is going on (despite cutting to many different perspectives, there was no way for it to include all perspectives). So I mean, there's a lot of room in there for people going missing but surviving, people getting picked up by the Inquisitors and turned (see Rebels and Fallen Order), people being in hiding, etc. I was really happy to see the Underground Railroad, of sorts, because it means what I always thought - that ordinary people the Jedi were working with didn't just sit on their hands and let them get killed. That they helped however and wherever they could, at great risk to themselves. Because it was the right thing to do.

    What sucks about that is that the third episode is actually where it started to get much better, and the pace picked up quite a bit. As you watch further, more and more things start to make sense from the first two episodes, because you find out more and more about the characters involved.

    You should go write down your brilliant fanfic and start getting a following. Disneys love to hire people who can prove they are qualified. See Luke’s change in appearance between Mando and BoBF.
