"A young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine until he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights." - Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 4: A New Hope
So this series is going to keep with the idea that they can mess with the continuity as much as they want, just for the sake of being able to create new unnecessary characters. What about that whole, I don't know, rule of two thing they established in TPM. And doesn't it pretty much take away a HUGE part of what made Vader so evil, in that he had to farm the task of Jedi hunting out to a ton of other people. Like he couldn't handle it personally. And here I honestly thought the villain would be Vader taking charge of the Imperial forces, showing them conquering system after system, not just hunting rogue Jedi. And we would FINALLY see the Rebellion form (like we should have with the prequels), fighting off the tyranny of the Empire with small victory after small victory. Because remember, the first large victory for them was written in the opening crawl of A New Hope.
But no. We get another crappy villain of the week, who is assigned to do things by characters we ACTUALLY want to see. It's just unnecessary. We'll see the Emperor farm the tasks to Vader, who will farm the tasks out to whoever the new villain is. If I wanted to watch CSPAN, where we watch Congress get nothing done, I could do that any time. I'll more than likely be skipping this series too.
What a shame. It could have actually been good. This just seems like more of the same.
