I’ll be perfectly honest. I think the three prequel movies were garbage. I also don’t think much of the ‘expanded universe.’ You like it? Good for you. Just two things: don’t tell me I’m obligated to like it, don’t use the word ‘hater,’ don’t tell me the books are ‘good literature,’ and don’t tell me that’s four things not two. Cool? Cool.
I do have a rooting interest in this stuff. That is, I want them to be good. I really do. I don’t need more disappointment in my life (thanks for nothing New York Jets). So I recapped the Clone Wars episodes hoping that at some point I will be entertained. If not, it’s a fun way to waste bandwidth.
As I recap them, I will keep track of two measurements: 1) the number of times per episode the phrase “point of view” is used and 2) the number of firefights that occur in the open without cover. It is my contention that Star Wars is produced by people with no greater imagination than that of third graders and these two measurements are, I think, strongly indicative of that.
