On second thoughts, I couldn't help but think there is a bit too much of a Marvel /Iron Man theme in the Dark Troopers; numerous, identical, disposable enemies. Plus, they are very reminiscent of Whiplash's drones, Ultron copies and the iron battalion. Not a big complaint, still thought it was epic, the Dark troopers were more menacing and tougher than any of those.

Weren't the Dark Troopers first introduced in the Dark Forces video game back in the 90s?

Yeah, as soon as I saw them in the staging area I said ooh, are they Dark Troopers from the Dark Forces game. The mrs of course had no idea what I was going on about

Just watched the only Season 2 "Gallery" episode - an hour of content that covers pretty much everything in the series except that one bit with you know who in the finale ?? Really ??

Or did the Gallery episode come out before the finale was aired ?

Yikes ! I embedded the Youtube video but the default thumb is a major spoiler.

Anyway >> We Made a Better CGi ending of you-know-what (interesting making-of, with moneyshot at 17:24).

Major surprise ending spoiler - only click after you've seen the entire S2.

I watched this yesterday. I think their result was more human, better CGI but looked less like the character than the original.

Gina Corano gets the tin tack for spouting ***** constantly on Twitter.

To be honest people can't say that this is a rash decision at all (even though they are). She's been banging on about election fraud and anti-mask nonsense for a while now and she's been defended by cast mates for it but obviously comparing the treatment of modern day Republicans to that of the Jews in the holocaust is the straw that broke the camel's back. You have to question why she thought that was a reasonable thing to say.

That said was she actually fired or is it more the case that they've decided not to renew her contract for the new series? Cara Dune, whilst a fun addition, is hardly a key character in the progression of the story.

She wasn't technically fired:
Quote:
"Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future," a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement. "Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable."

I’m loving the people arguing about free speech on this. Yes you can say what you want but when you’re employed by someone who doesn’t agree I’m afraid there might be consequences.

No loss in the long run, just another ultra hardline conservative who has no concept of a modern world.

The problem with all this ultra left wing outrage over Gina Carano is that when you actually research the things she actually said (rather than rely on clickbait articles that just summarise and make her sound like some vile peddler of hate and conspiracy nonsense), it's not nearly as inflammatory or offensive as you would assume given the reaction to her. You have to work really ******* hard to have any opinion of her other than she's probably a bit of an idiot.

Her goose was cooked the moment she refused to put gender neutral pronouns in her bio. Since then she's been reacting to the completely insane hate that came her way as a result of that, which has led to more and more stupid posts on her part. You might think it's good riddance to some moronic ultra-right "anti-masker" or QAnon believing nutjob, but it's only a matter of time before it's not just easy right-wing idiot targets like Carano that are being persecuted by the left wing twitterati. If there's one thing you can always rely on these left wing activists these days is that they always work their way around to consuming their own (just ask JK Rowling).

If it was just refused to put pronouns she would of been fine but everything else was awful. Sadly people are becoming more and more polar opposites in their political sides and they expected you to pick a side.

One side, you have the twitter puritan, who thinks everyone is sexist and racist if they don't agree with them on their views. Then you have rabid ultra right wing/alt right nut job, wo thinks you are "SJW woke ****".
