Obi-Wan Kenobi Concludes the Series with Confidence (Part VI Recap)

The finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi, worryingly labeled as the conclusion of the season instead of the series, has arrived on Disney+. Boiling the quality of a miniseries down to how well its finale operates is not always fair, but in the case of Obi-Wan, its inconsistency of caliber — ranging from groan-worthy to downright epic […]

Episode three of season four, titled ‘The Monster and The Superhero, directed by Shawn Levy (Free Guy) and written by Caitlin Schneiderhan starts off with a harrowing revelation: the government believe Eleven to be the one responsible for the brutal Hawkins murders.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Part IV Retreads the Franchise in a Bid for Nostalgia (Part IV Recap)

With only six episodes, Obi-Wan Kenobi will be coming to an end in two weeks’ time. If the story were to drastically change course from how it began, I believe it would have happened already.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is haunted by the past as it reaches midseason (Part III Recap)

With the third episode of Obi-Wan Kenobi released in the span of one week, we’re officially halfway through the series. After so many years of build-up and anticipation, it almost seems like it’s happening too fast.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” goes off-world in another exciting adventure (Part II Recap)

Following up a premiere episode could be easy or difficult, vastly depending on the series — if the opening did its job, and properly established character, setting and conflict, the following episode should be able to get the ball rolling at the very start without much set-up.
