Why is Obi-Wan the most boring thing about the Obi-Wan Kenobi streaming series on Disney+?
ROADTRIPPIN’ co-hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Mike Bawden discuss the broader implications of a question posed by an Imagination Connoisseur who asks why Obi-Wan Kenobi is such a boring character in his own series. In fact, one could ask why so many Star Wars series seem to be “running in place” and not really going anywhere with characters who don’t seem to be doing all that much. Is there a larger force at work here that no one seems to acknowledge? And where have we heard THAT before?
Established genre franchises should use their best stories – no matter where they come from.
ROADTRIPPIN’ co-hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Mike Bawden respond to a letter from a listener who asks why when it comes to making films or TV, genre franchises don’t use the best stories available – even if those stories were created for other media like comics, novelizations, etc.? And when it comes to the Star Wars franchise in particular, why aren’t stories like the Republic Commando series included in the mix?
Is Star Wars incompatible with the Disney brand?
Co-hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Mike Bawden celebrate Memorial Day and discuss the implications of a letter received from an Imagination Connoisseur who asks how different Star Wars would be if it had been acquired by HBO instead of Disney. Our revelation … Star Wars may not be compatible with the Disney brand.

Star Wars turns 45 – is it middle-aged or ready for a second wind?
Co-hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Mike Bawden talk about the 45th anniversary of STAR WARS at the movie theater. Both Rob and Mike saw the film in the theater during opening weekend and they share their recollections as well as their views on where the franchise is headed.

Does suffering make the heart grow fonder?
Imagination Connoisseur, Craig Stratton, asks if Star Wars fans are starting to view the prequel trilogy in a better light now that they’ve seen the sequel trilogy. Might we finally forgive George Lucas for Jar Jar Binks? No. Probably not. But thanks for asking.
Cynacism run amok
Imagination Connoisseur, Jermaine K., asks why our favorite sci-fi shows have to be so darn bleak all the time? Is it so out-of-fashion to be optimistic that the only alternative is to be dystopian? Is this the future we aspire to realize?
This is the way (please step around the plot holes) …
Even with a few plotholes in the second season of ‘The Mandalorian’, Imagination Connoisseur Julian Mushkin is excited for season three to start on Disney+.
The Book of Boba Fett was worse than the Star Wars sequel trilogy. (A Robservations Short Take)
ROBSERVATIONS host Robert Meyer Burnett makes the claim that ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ might have been the worst thing to happen to Star Wars in its 45-year history.
When the Force finally awakened, why did it have to be in such a foul mood?
A villainous entity sucks all the energy out of its sole source of power in order to have its way in the universe only to learn that without its gravitational center, it’s destined to a perpetual existence of aimless wandering through the cold void of space. Sounds like the lesson taught to the First Order in THE FORCE AWAKENS, doesn’t it? It’s not.
Should STAR WARS even be considered science fiction? (ROBS #790)
