STAR WARS REBELS Review – “Always Two There Are”

This review contains spoilers During the last season of Star Wars Rebels, I wrote a particularly nasty review of the episode “Idiot’s Array” in which I called out the episode’s writer, Kevin Hopps, describing his work as (among other things) “a major stain on an otherwise spotless show.” It was mean – more mean than … Continue reading STAR WARS REBELS Review – “Always Two There Are”
