I can’t even begin to express all the emotions Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions brought out of me. It went beyond everything I had expected for this final season. I love how they tapped into the Star Wars mythology on such a deep level. There were so many feelings. I am so grateful to the whole team of talented people who worked on this. It was Star Wars at its best and it made me want to rewatch all of the previous seasons (+ the movie). I also realized I never rewatched Episode III: Revenge of the Sith since watching The Clone Wars. I am already dreading the day because I believe that I’ll cry even more (knowing I could barely stand after the first time I saw Episode III on the big screen).
There are so many things I want to write about in future papers about The Clone Wars within the Star Wars universe. I already landed a new paper idea, thanks to Rose who fed my muses (Star Wars and My Little Pony Friendship is Magic cross study angle, knowing I already have an idea for a comparative analysis between some aspects of The Lion King and Star Wars).
Speaking of writing, I have started the afterword for my book Women in Science Fiction Television today and did 1,400 words out of the 2,000 planned. I’ve already mentioned other shows I didn’t study in the actual chapters in it and I can’t help wanting to make a series and not just a one shot book. Time will tell, of course.
While looking up a random detail about the Stargate franchise for the Afterword, I suddenly wanted to try Stargate Universe out. I love Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, but I had always refused to watch Universe, because of all the mess that surrounded the production and then how Atlantis got cancelled. I liked a few of the cast members, and since the original Universe airing, I got to know even more of them. And now I want to try the show out. I am the first surprised! Oh well, that only means two seasons to check out (in case I like it).
I also just found out that executive producer Howard Gordon (The X-Files, 24…) has a new show coming up: Legends. I don’t need more shows on the to watch list, but I am a huge fan of Sean Bean, and of Gordon’s work, so I will have to check it out when it comes on TV this upcoming summer. And it’s labelled as a mini series, so how am I supposed to resist?
