    Great show as always by Rocha. But Reilly… big respect to you for bringing up Ronald D. Moore who wrote BSG ‘re-imagined’ and other shows. I also don’t want the Star Wars universe to be over saturated, however, not at the cost of a potentially ground breaking, premium quality live-action TV show. A running series would allow true world building, proper character development and bringing the fans and audience in, up close and personal on a week-by-week basis. Overlooking TV would be a seriously lost opportunity. And I can think of no one else worthy, to pick up that baton other than Ronald D. Moore. Make it dark and gritty in detail but pure and simple plot and direction, make it the STAR WARS – OLD REPUBLIC! xD

    • Thanks dude! I know, I am so curious about Moore’s episode and – moreover – think he should be called in to showrun the whole series. I think if he is brought in, saturation aside, we will get a groundbreaking series as you suggest – something we haven’t seen in the Star Wars universe before. Especially when you think of the title – Underworld – so much potential!

        We can only hope and pray… us Star Wars fans are like junkies, right? Always wanting more (after years of starvation), hahaha. Keep up the good work, Rocha & Reilly. Cheers xD

    YES YES YES to Hayden coming back as Anakin/Vader force ghost. Loved the force ghost artwork in Art of TFA. Him flowing back and forth between light and dark would be intriguing. Love to see scenes of him with Kylo and Rey/Luke. Even if just an Anakin force ghost talking to Luke would be awesome too.
