"The series follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch – a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose."

Premier: May 4, 2021

Post-Clone Wars would mean they'd be working for Palpatine, no? Perhaps they help Vader chase down the remaining Jedi?

Intriguing. The pace is slow like old Clone Wars episodes. They need to give these A-Team a mission. They have been ousted from their lives as soldiers. They’ve been betrayed. I wonder where it leads them.

I think they are going to have to show more dimensions to Wrecker and Tech. The programming thread is interesting.

These guys are defects. Omega proves they are results of particular engineering. The defects is the excuse the Kaminoan scientist is using to do their experiments.

I liked it. I think it needs more direction. They will tell the change from clones to conscripted soldiers. They will show more seeds of the rebellion story. I’m curious to see if they these guys into fleeing Jedi’s path or if they avoid the Jedi. Surely more interaction with Regs is in store. Them fighting their brothers who looked down on them is a story they will tell.

I am curious what they do with this his story. Bad Batch is about special ops and super soldiering. Their action needs a purpose.

I'm just over an hour in and I... really just don't care. I absolutely despise the Clone Wars animation style, so I knew this one would be a hard sell for me. But I was actually a little surprised by how much I don't care about any of this story or any of these characters. Even my son got bored at the hour mark and asked me to turn it off. So... cool for those that are into it, but I don't think anyone in my house will be continuing with this.

2 episodes in and I am... underwhelmed. Like KD, I've never been a huge fan of this animation style. I liked Rebels more. But I just don't find myself caring about these guys. I think that's really the hidden purpose of Omega; to try to make us care about the BB more. I'll give it another episode or 2, and hope for the best.

Watched the first episode with my daughters. Loving it! I’ve always loved Stormtroopers, so it’s a blast getting to see highly trained and effective armored troopers who aren’t aimless bad guys. Love the characters so far. My daughters are cheering for them, especially in the training room sequence.

I'm a couple episodes behind, but I do like this show. I'm not up to date on Clone Wars (still near the end of season 2), as I really don't care for the art style. I wasn't sure I'd care for Bad Batch, but I'm digging it so far.

Gets better and better. The cameos will run out soon enough. Visually it’s great to see the series at its best. I realize just how much I missed this type of story telling. It’s pretty simple. I wonder when the Kaminoans become a liability to the Emperor and he attempts to remove them. I wonder if they will have a fail safe built in to give them control the clones in even if takeover. I wonder if there is a clone civil war coming. I wonder if we see other female clones.

I can't express how excited I am for more Cade Bane, love that guy. Beyond his story in Bad Batch, I really want to see him show up in live-action somewhere. Maybe Andor, Kenobi... maybe he's alive in Mando's time?

Live action Cad Bane… That’s a cool dream.

Episode 15 - Return to …
Spoiler! :
Kamino…was I the only one sad to see it destroyed. It is images like this and all the dead at the end of Season 7 that really grips you.

Since Omega is basically...
Spoiler! :
...Boba Fett's twin sister...
...it follows that she might eventually show up in...
Spoiler! :
...The Book of Boba Fett.
I would think that in casting a live-action Omega, it would be important to cast someone of Maori descent. In the Mandalorian timeline for example (9ABY), Omega would be approx. 46 years old, so it would need to be someone who could be believable at that age. There aren't a lot of actors who fit that bill, but then I found Miriama McDowell.

WDYT? I think she really looks like an adult Omega. Her eyes help sell it:

Not familiar with her work but she looks the part.
