Most of it was some group cancellations that totaled 29 lost tickets. But even if that hadn't happened, it would have just been keeping pace with the three comps. Still, only one day and these blips can happen. Not anything I'm remotely concerned about, especially as F2 was coming off a couple of very strong days and most of the other theaters in the region were still pretty good. But I'd be remiss if I didn't comment on why it was relatively low tonight. Chalk it up to random variation and nothing more.

  3. I don't think it's so much "getting up in arms" as getting an unexpected whack at the piñata that is George Lucas and his tinkering with the OT. Mostly on the stale joke end. Then again, it's always Amateur Stand Up Comedian(ne) Night on Twitter, so this was irresistible for some folks, I'm sure.
  4. Sound and fury, signifying nothing. The reaction, that is. A classic case of stand up comedy acts gone awry on Twitter and elsewhere. One giant huge yawn from me, in other words.
  5. I personally saw it on the WW Trend list when I was up watching it. Was for a few hours as well. No idea why it might not have been picked up.

  8. Knew this was coming. Zaidi really wanted him and didn't hide it very well. And the longer this process dragged on, the more it smelled like it was the SF brass trying to figure out a way to craft a perfect PR statement. This is not gonna go over well in Giants land. On the one hand, the traditional end of the fanbase looked at his time in Philly and shrieked in horror. On the other hand, the more, shall we say progressive end of the fan base looked at his dealings with those assault accusations and flipped out. He really doesn't have much of a cushion here, outside of folks who implicitly trust Zaidi. And even then it's... Really? === Me, personally? I'd buy Zaidi's line of reasoning of "Hey, folks learn from their mistakes" if Kapler actually had a whole year off to reflect on things. Figure out what he actually did wrong. That he was hired immediately might make him think he did nothing wrong and that Philly was full of a bunch of losers. I didn't have a much of an issue with how he handled things in Philly, though I'm a little troubled about how he handled personalities there. But his handling of the girl who was assaulted by a minor leaguer is just damn near close to a deal breaker. And that Zaidi couldn't read the room about all of this? ... Well, he better hope he really is smarter than everyone else. Both for his sake and Kapler's.
  9. Could be a group sale refund, as I've seen several over the course of the pre-sale window, possibly because of the sheer length of pre-sales. Also could be a glitch on their end or your own scraper. Not a huge deal, either way.
  10. Not a chance in hell. You don't intentionally set a giant pile of money on fire just in the hopes of maybe getting a good comeback story.
  11. There is absolutely something to be said for watching in release/production order. For one thing, the animation quality as well as the writing of the characters will be fairly consistent. And, truth be told, folks probably should make their first watch in release/production order. It's told in "arcs" anyway, and there are recaps before every episode (you'll see what I mean when/if you watch it), so it's pretty easy to tell what stories are being told at any one time. Can be a bit odd though seeing a character get introduced and then skipping back a bit before they were ever around. === Mind you, I love love looooooove TCW to pieces. Mostly for the writing and the eventual long term story arcs. It is extremely my jam when it comes to SW. ... Then again, I like a lot of odd things in SW, so that also might be something of a warning. One really great thing about TCW was that it wasn't scared at all to push the boundaries. One arc it might be telling a western story. The next, a gangster one. Then it would go into political intrigue. It even tipped its toes in to kaiju inspired territory on one occasion! By far, it is the one SW project that wasn't afraid to take risks and go all over the place when it came to genre. From Lovecraftian inspired characters to A Day in the Life of Droids. It went all over the place. And god bless it for doing so. 👍
  12. WARNING: If you decide to watch the cartoon The Clone Wars it is 1) told out of chronological order for much of the first four seasons (because non-linear storytelling is one of George Lucas' hobby horses) and 2) the animation quality was... Let's just say it improved greatly as the show went on. Rebels, on the other hand, was linear all the way through. But it too was pretty rough around the edges at the beginning (especially when it came to animating hair [those poor Wookiees ]). So keep that in mind. === There IS an official guide to watching TCW in so-called chronological order, FWIW. But that can be a lot of work jumping back and forth. Though I suppose with the Watchlist function, it might not be too bad,
  13. So Disney Plus went live ahead of schedule, for any night owls (or folks in other countries) that might be interested in checking things out.
