Chuck’s review published on Letterboxd:
This movie is a decent introduction to the TV series that followed. I had this plan that I would watch the TV series after I watched the movie. Well, about 15 episodes into season 1 (of 6), I just couldn't go any further (farther? fathier? I am your father?) Some episodes were good but others felt like filler. I didn't want to totally give up on the series, so I found this article that outlines the essential episodes and in which order they should be watched. I know the die-hard fans would say "watch them all," but all I need are the ones that give me a good feel for the series and/or relate to the rest of the Star Wars universe.
As I said, the movie is decent, but it kind of feels like two episodes stitched together (because it probably is).
