Rebels: "Crawler Commandeers" (Ep. 4.08)

-- "We've done a lot more with a lot less."

Sometimes, I'm reminded how dumb droids are in Star Wars. Not the idea of them, but the actual droids. No, I don't mean the battle droids; they have a reason to be that way. But there's no good reason for anyone to be able to sneak up on a security droid and, yet, Sabine does just that. If you're going to use droids for security, they should be able to see, or whatever, in all directions. They shouldn't be marching around on patrol like a stormtrooper. If that's the way you want to play it, use a stormtrooper.

Yeah, sometimes I'm bothered by little details, even in Star Wars.

I don't have much to say about this episode other than that. It has almost nothing to do with the overall plot arc and nothing of real significance happens. It was amusing, but, mostly, it just left me with, "Why?" Not that I believe that everything must further the story, but this episode seems to be totally inconsequential.

"That could have gone better."
"I thought it was pretty good."

"It's not too late to abandon ship."

"Like mother said, 'Once a scoundrel, always a scoundrel.'"
