Loved this, would probably give it an 8 personally (middle a little saggy). Only thing I couldn’t get away with was the Padawan at the beginning with a middle aged mans voice

The padawan here was, I believe, supposed to be Kanan Jarrus from Rebels and they made a bizarre choice in using the same voice actor.

"Face, Murdoch, BA, Hannibal and... Rambo? I guess?"

I think you'll find that's Topper Harley, Tom.
Yeah, not an outstanding opener but it had to cover a not inconsiderable amount of ground to wedge (!) in.
I actually had more trouble with Saw Gerrara and Tarkin's (careful to not quin him) voice work. The former sounded weak after Forest Whitaker's and less we say about the latter...
Omega troubles me too - as she's no Ahsoka. Yes it's Star Wars for roughly all ages but my kiddie twee meter in on high alert. I guess they could ditch her and do some of Filoni's dark arc episodes, Maybe I'm being overly concerned, as they certainly made effort to give her DNA some spunk in scenes. I'll leave that there.

I felt very much the same about Ezra in Rebels at the beginning and they developed his character very well. I think the hidden programming in Omega could be interesting going forward.

As long as she's not like Kaz in Resistance, we should be OK.

Can you watch this as a standalone or do you need to watch previous clone shows?

Decent start. I have no concerns about Omega, she doesn’t come across as annoying nor is she supposed to be another Ahsoka, not even sure why she’s been mentioned.

no, it read like a really good review which is why I was surprised at it only getting a 7, there wasnt really anything important to complain about, it hit all the right spots for me, the presentation on my 4k 65 inch OLED / ATMOS was awesome.

What device are you watching it from. Only 5.1 and no Atmos from my Apple TV 4K. The films play in Atmos OK so not my settings.

to be honest I didnt check if it was actually ATMOS but it usually is, i'm using an amazon firestick 4k plugged straight into my 4k reciever, my TV isnt great at HDR as its only a first gen EF9500 LG OLED and about 400 nits but its looks fantastic with the lights out

Perfectly fine second episode, still setting the scene.

I did like the way they set up the origins of chain codes though.

Take note of the Imperial officer - as I think he's going to be a big role. Primarily because they're making him into an action figure..!
