An Obi-Wan Sandwich


Several days ago, I had some harsh words regarding the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series.  I love all things Star Wars but felt the first two episodes of this series were very slow.  Now that I have watched the entire thing, I feel it’s only fair that I give an update.  Obi-Wan is one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars universe and I was very happy to see this part of his story. It had lightsaber battles, plenty of one-liners, great secondary characters, and some interesting character development. The problem is that we already know how the story ends for all of the main characters.  This show is a little sliver of the Obi-Wan story and we have already seen his beginning and end.  It’s hard to manufacture suspense when there is a very clear threshold for potential peril.  If only real life worked the same way.
