Actually it was Rant Of The Day on 3/2, but Din Yalonen posted this on Paul McDonald’s Facebook page that in many ways captures exactly how I feel about life, the universe, and everything. Hope they don’t mind if I repost it here because it’s just that good:
“The Wrong Jedi. Best ending since Return of the Jedi. Makes the penultimate statement about the whole Saga. This episode was the greatest thing to happen to Star Wars since I can remember.
I was maybe moved emotionally more by this episode than anything since Vader saving Luke. It’s even the whole reason Vader had to save Luke.
It shows why the Jedi failed and why Anakin failed. It shows why they had to move from following a Gospel of Law to a Gospel of Love.
If anyone can’t watch Revenge of the Sith now and not get it, not get why Anakin was so down, not get why he turned, not get why we had the Prequels, well, I dunno man.
Everyone needs to stop being so hard on this show and Kevin Kiner, as a matter of fact. Hearing Ahsoka’s theme at the end. It was so utterly moving. Genius. Bravo Kevin!
And everyone also needs to stop being so hard on the Prequels and it’s era. This was The Greatest Star Wars Thing Ever to me (Since Vader saved Luke.)
And another thing, I’m glad Mark Hamill has been told to pipe down. I don’t want to hear another quote from Hamill, Kasdan and whoever else, dumping on the prequels as if that’s a good reason to make the sequels. Correcting or getting away from the so-called flaws of the prequels is no good reason to make anything. I hope everyone learns that maybe it’s time to stop shedding so much darkness on the Prequels. I want to hear these Star Wars luminaries talk about how the Sequels will embrace the greatness of the Original, the Prequels and The Clone Wars – All At Once!
Everyone from Hamill to Kasdan to us needs to lighten up. This stuff is moving. This stuff is pure greatness.
We all need to just get over it, I wanna hear more talk about how awesome the Prequels and this show are. And how this Episode, The Wrong Jedi, is The Greatest Thing Ever!”
