- I had no idea that so much of the plot would revolve around a 10-year old Leia, who simply has no sense of personal danger. It gets annoying sometimes, but is generally not too bad (though a kid like her in real life would be very annoying to deal with).
- We get just a glimpse of the potential of having Vader in this series at the end of the second episode, and I'm thinking it's going to be exactly the right choice, because of the emotional implications of Obi-Wan meeting his "brother" again. He did not know he survived, and is clearly disturbed and shocked when he learns the truth. I wanted to see Maul when I first knew this series was coming, but no, I think putting Vader/Anakin in the show was by far the better choice.
- Bringing in the Inquisitors from Rebels is also the right move. It ups the threat to Obi-Wan and connects the animated and live action nicely. It allows the show to hold Vader back until he can have the most impact. The 3rd sister is an angry Inquisitor who enjoys killing and is obsessed with tracking down Kenobi and is really effective, in my view.
- The effects are good, the environment is convincing, and all the parts seem well cast to me.
