Television Review | Andor (Season 1)
I don't want every future Star Wars show to be like Andor, but I do want every future Star Wars show to have the same level of effort for excellence that Andor had. Andor is the present high water mark for Star Wars television, arguably for Star Wars generally, so I award the first season 10/10
Television Review | Tales of the Jedi
An enjoyable watch that will go over well with fans of The Clone Wars. Makes me want an entire Dooku series more than ever. The show itself is just okay, seeming like streaming catalog filler. 6/10
Television Review | Obi-Wan Kenobi
This show is sort of a reverse Solo, a television series that should have been a movie. If you’ve avoided the show due to bad word-of-mouth, I’d say give it a watch, expecting something a little small-scale but which builds every episode toward a satisfying finale. 7/10
Television Review | The Book of Boba Fett (Season 1)
Good, not great, but good. Treats the main character as a character, against the obvious direction such a show might take.
Film Review | Black Widow
Black Widow succeeds in showcasing the title character while telling its own compelling story. It's not the best MCU film, but it's exciting and never collapses under the weight of detailing a known character's backstory.
Book Review | Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good
This book works well as the middle chapter. It follows from the previous volume smoothly, it points toward an interesting third book, and the story of Thrawn, et al, racing to prevent a civil war between the Chiss is more than enough to justify Greater Good in it’s own right.
Book Review | Star Wars: Victory's Price
This book, and this trilogy, is the best thing to come out of Star Wars in some time. You should read it. It's well worth your time, even if you aren't much of a Star Wars fan.
Book Review | Star Wars: Light of the Jedi
While I read this without ever feeling like I should quit mid-way through, I have no real desire to read it ever again. Its strength, and its purpose, really, is in its world-building. By itself, that's not enough to make a good book.
Television Review | The Mandalorian (Season 2)
This season The Mandalorian really took the mantle of being the current flagship Star Wars property. Season 2 was a solid improvement over Season 1, and both were great television.

Book Review | Thrawn Ascendancy: Chaos Rising
If you’re a fan of Thrawn, you’ll probably appreciate this book. If you aren’t a Thrawn fan, I’d probably recommend you read some other books ahead of this one.
Book Review | Shadow Fall
If you read Alphabet Squadron and liked it, go ahead and read this one too. It builds from the same themes as that last book, and goes in some interesting directions, setting up the next book to be, hopefully, something pretty good as well.
Game Review | Warframe
I don’t play much in the way of video games; I just play Warframe.
