Buy Tales of the Jedi (Part Three)
*So, okay, this will at last wrap up this particular audio drama, though there will be more to come. So, this part dramatizes The Freedon Nadd Uprising.
*Okay, this is just beyond the pale. You remember that whine Luke did when he said that power converter line? Well, Satal Keto speaks in that tone ALL THE TIME. AND IN A NASAL VOICE. ARGH! KILL! HULK SMASH TAPE PLAYER!!
*You know, I used to find it annoying when there would be action sequences and the participants would just be speaking in a normal voice, while explosions and etc. went on behind them and they were supposedly doing back flips and trying to kill each other. Only, just now, they did an action sequence which consisted solely of lightsaber noises and two actors taking turns doing “scream/grunts.” I think I liked the other way better.
*Why do they sometimes accompany Master Thon’s travels with sounds reminiscent of a horse’s hooves clopping? He doesn’t have hooves, the tempo and sound is clearly coming from a beast not nearly as big as Thon, and, well, if you’re going to do it you should damn well do it all the time, not just when you feel like it.
*And is it just me or does that argument Thon uses to sway the Senate into helping the Jedi just really, really not hold any water whatsoever?
*And why does Nomi sing her first line on Onderon (“Need a little help, fellas?”). I mean, she just unashamedly sings it. It just boggles the mind.
*Okay, I’m tired. We’re done here.
*Seriously, steer clear of this train wreck, unless you’re in the mood for mind blowing stupidity.
*CANONICAL STATUS: God, you have to ask? This work is NOT RECOMMENDED as a historical resource.
*Bad. Warned Against. 1 star.
*Next time, we’ll jump back to the Chronicles of the Old Republic for the next installment: The Naddist Revolt. They certainly do! *rimshot*
