QuoteSure, they've done good things during war.

Yes, but Mandos wouldn't know that.  They would know about their warrior prowess and give them props for that but despise almost everything else about them, especially their non-attachment philosophy and sticking their nose where it doesn't belong.

Ah okay, didn't read that from Mando perspective... just overall.

The tongue-in-cheek joke is that many of the criticisms are full of hypocrisy (child soldiers, childhood indoctrination, backwards traditions) or trying to have it both ways (Ahsoka is painted as a bad guy in #4 but a sympathetic downtrodden in #9)

I thought the test tube soldiers were ordered by Sidious, or one of his agents.

Possibly.  But officially, the name on the purchase was jedi master Sifo-Dyas, who died some time after the purchase.  That's all that's known with certainty.

Watched the second season of the Netflix documentary Cheer. Darker, messier, and at times very moving. I am amazed at the work and athleticism required for these routines.

Molly cows. Can you imagine their practise routines in any level. Exactly how tough these kids are?

Boba Fett.  Just saw the season finale.  Didn't disappoint.

I won't lie to you guys and say that the logic or tactics are flawless, but it's no GoT s8.  Maybe more like GoT s4, where some stuff didn't add up but it was still very good.

[spoiler]I 100% roll like the Pyke Syndicate, tactics-wise.  Nothing too complicated or unconventional, just tried-and-true tactics with a couple aces up my sleeve.  If it weren't for plot armor (more like plot beskar), Boba and co would be 100% dead.[/spoiler]

The Gizmoplex app is up for Android, iOS and Roku systems, so I've been watching the MST3K episodes I had on vhx.tv and getting more excited over the Season 13 premiere three weeks from today.

I think you should leave with Tim Robinson.  :agreenod: It's very funny.

I tried to try Star Trek Prodigy, but it's the most graphically-impressive, well-rendered crap I've ever seen in my life.

It would be good except for three key flaws:
1) Literally seems geared towards babies
2) Boring to the point of unwatchability
3) Not even the slightest whiff of normal Star Trek themes

A key plot point is that the starship is being pulled into gravity well of a star and about to be destroyed.  The star?  A white dwarf.  <1.2 solar masses.  It's like being crushed to death by a chihuahua.  Possible?  I guess.  Likely?  No.  (the cherry on top is that the white dwarf is tearing apart a nearby red giant even though red giants are usually more than a solar mass, up to 8 solar masses)

Oh, and the ship's sublight engines can't escape the gravity well, so one person has the galaxy-brain idea of getting into an escape pod, which likely has much, much less thrust.  It's like parachuting out of a plane caught in a hurricane.  You better thank your lucky stars that there aren't any available (they jettisoned the escape pods at the first sign of trouble lol)

Has anyone seen The Haunting of Bly Manor? Is it too scary or watchable?

I enjoyed The Haunting of Bly Manor. It is more creepy, suspenseful, Gothic romance than horror movie. It deals with themes such as love, isolation, and regret.
