I have never thought of it this way before. You know, you could be totally right, maybe the new gen isnt as devoted. Maybe Star Wars is just another show like spongebob to them, so it gets high ratings, but then they will lose interest much quicker then OT fans.
Becuause I believe the OT had a MUCH bigger impact on society back when it came out, as opposed TCW or even the prequels for that matter.
Good points, thanks. A whole new way of thinking about the direction Star Wars is headed in.
I don't know about everyone here- I'm 30 now- don't feel it-but remeber getting online at 20 and seeing alot of older fans- 30-50 then. I don't see many around if at all anymore- and most that I was emailing were getting sic of the continuity issues as it was. I stuck it out- (like I always will- I tend to speak up for the disenfranchised which can lead to aches in my hind end that I could have avoided by staying quite )
I do enjoy a GOOD retcon.
Large part because THEY WERE looking at stopping and fixing all these- now it feels like all that work be damned we can do it again.
Ok- but it better be NINE HELLS OF A GOOD retcon
I fear though that things could go south of cheese- I don't know if it's due to GL's directing or Dave Filoni (Whatever I don't know the full detail- which probably adds to my paranoia )
Same song here- please bring all sort of new things. Just don't kill of planets or backgrounds- bending is ok, breaking - hey it hurts.
But anway- I see less and less of the Old School - and now I feel Old School But after a while people will start to tune out.
I mean I love wolverine- but there are so many different story arcs and very few are tied together. When this happens to SW- when I can look at my book collection and see more of the The Lost city of the Jedi or Galaxy of Fear series that I know have very little to do with what "IS" Star Wars anymore- I think even I'll be like "What's the point"
(to me :D)
