What was general consensus on Ahsoka (spelling?)?

I started it the other day and I think it’s pretty entertaining, though, I thought it fell differently in the Star Wars timeline.

Solid installment especially if you've read Heir to the Empire and watched Rebels

I haven't read the book, but I strongly recommend watching Rebels as well as the Disney+ playlist they have for Ahsoka Clone Wars episodes. Ahsoka really does seem like a time jumped season 5 of Rebels, so watching that first gives you a bunch of background info that make Ahsoka much more enjoyable and easy to follow.

I enjoyed it, but it’s more like Rebels season 5 than it’s own show. It dives deep into lore that was set up in Clone Wars and Rebels and it really excels in that aspect. David Tennant reprising his role as the Jedi droid from Clone Wars was great, but Ray Stevenson was the star of the season and his death is a significant loss to the franchise. The Thrawn storyline in Rebels was excellent so I’m excited to see what they do with him leading up to the Heir to the Empire movie.

The fight choreography needs some work, but overall it’s a good show. The people that watched through YouTube hated it, but they hate themselves, so that’s to be expected.

Liked it a lot. The Ahsoka-Anakin scenes are top tier.

Didn’t love the finale, but overall it was really good.

It's not a bad show, but I'm not really a fan of the direction they took for some characters.

Thrawn was basically a total bumbling moron, which made it seem unbelievable that he had survived for so long after the Empire.

Sabine's entire storyline seemed completely out of character.

Or in the Empire for that matter. The Impreial Navy in general was pretty bigoted against non-humans. The only reason he succeeded as he did was because he proved himself to be brilliant. More than brilliant, even.

That Ashley Eckstein is the real Ahsoka Tano, not Rosario Dawson.

They did a great job with him in Rebels, but just totally made him into an idiot in this show.

Ahsoka turned Thrawn into an impulsive, whiny, emotional, incompetent, petty child.

The literary Thrawn was cold, calculating, scheming, authoritative, tactical, driven, and brutally efficient.

Enjoyment of it really depends on whether or not you watched "Clone Wars" and "Rebels".

If you did, it's a B tier show. Pacing is weird, the sets occasionally look cheap, the acting is uneven, and there's several plot decisions which seem...odd, but it's an entertaining story with some solid development of previously known characters. There's some good action, but the fight choreography is sloppy and often seems either low stakes, predictable, or out of place for where it should be in the character's developing arc.

If you didn't see the cartoons, it's a C- at best. The characters will come across as wooden with very little backstory on who everyone is, their motivations, or their personalities (or lack thereof). Basically, all of these characters got extensively developed throughout those two cartoon series. So, without those series, they appear to have a ton of unearned acclaim and skills. The reality is that they actually did earn all of that and go through a whole heck of a lot to arrive at who they are at the beginning of the Ahsoka series, but if you didn't watch the cartoons, you wouldn't know that.

I thought it was good.

I loved it seeing her live when she appeared in The Mandalorian. At that point, I had seen Clone Wars, but not Rebels. My son talked me into watching Rebels prior to Ahsoka, and that really, really helped with this show. Rebels is enjoyable on it's own, and it lays the groundwork for the direction they should have always taken with movie sequels.

I did think some of the fight scenes needed some better choreography, and Rosario Dawson needs to hit the gym harder if she's going to keep this role. Not meant as an insult to her, but she needs to commit if she's gonna do it, the way actors do for superhero movies. She was ok in Mando, but a little thicker in Ahsoka. I get that she's 45 and it may not be easy, but it needs to be done.

If one likes their villains being convenient idiots instead of brilliant unstoppable tacticians, than im sure this show would be entertaining
