Melinda’s Brew: The Force of Female Fandom [2]

Melinda's Brew

The more things change, the more things stay the same. Aside from the fact I never have been a huge fan of using such a vague word as “thing[s]”, I always have been rather amazed at the truth behind this simple adage. Shouldn’t it stand to reason that change brings about … well, change … thus “things” don’t stay the same? Isn’t that what change is all about?

Yet, we’re all human. Since that is the case, human nature, emotions, preferences come into play, and each of those facets of our beings will affect how adaptable – or resistant to change – we are. Getting philosophical on you I seem to be but this line of thinking popped into my head – quite naturally – when I sat down to write the second installment in my series about Star Wars’ female fan base. From a certain point of view, change has occurred. Read more

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Double Agent Droid,” “Twin Suns,” and “Zero Hour” Reviews

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episodes “Double Agent Droid,” “Twin Suns,” and “Zero Hour.”

The third season of Star Wars Rebels has proven to be an astounding one that somehow surpassed the greatness of a second season that heavily featured Ahsoka Tano, Darth Vader and a climactic battle between the two. From the numerous Rogue One connections to the end of Maul, Rebels established its rightful place within the overall saga and continued to show on a weekly basis how crucial the show has become as an avenue for augmenting the established Star Wars canon. The last three episodes I’ll be covering in this post exemplify that importance.

Star Wars Rebels Talking Points: “Zero Hour: Parts 1 and 2”

The Star Wars Rebels season finale is always an event; threads are tied up, mysteries are solved, and tears are shed. Season Three is no different. Personally, I spent most of the episode full of angst and nervousness. The stakes are high, and with Grand Admiral Thrawn in hot pursuit, even the Duke boys would be in trouble (#80sReference). As with all Talking Points columns, there will be spoilers, so don’t click on the link below until you have seen “Zero Hour: Parts 1 and 2”.

Rebels Reconnaissance: “Legacy of Mandalore,” “Through Imperial Eyes,” and “Secret Cargo” Reviews

*Spoiler warning: This review contains spoilers for the Star Wars Rebels episodes “Legacy of Mandalore,” “Through Imperial Eyes,” and “Secret Cargo.”

“Legacy of Mandalore” serves as a direct follow-up to the excellent “Trials of the Darksaber” and continues the trend of outstanding character-driven episodes we’ve seen in this third season of Star Wars Rebels. Again taking center stage, Sabine Wren returns to her homeworld of Krownest to confront her mother and reveal that she now wields the legendary Darksaber. It’s a noble attempt at reconciliation for the Wrens as a family and the Mandalorians as a people, but it feels like a fool’s errand just the same.
