    Well.. its very cold... in space. -Khan

    The only thing people have ever wanted is good coherent storytelling across a trilogy. What they've gotten is a writers version of telephone with no real coherent strategy such that things suddenly flip for no reason from one movie to the next. First Snoke is important, then he gets punked out. First Rey(and her lineage) is important, such that it is mentioned constantly throughout TFA, now its like.. nope.. she's an orphan of some drunks who sold her off for some liquor.

    By the time we get around to 9, I half expect JJ to come and fix all that with her being a Skywalker of some sort and Snoke actually being important.

    Episode 9: Just Kidding.

    I agree. The new movies are being written as a series of character moments for people to blog about and post about on social media. The idea of telling a good story, let alone over the course of an entire trilogy, is being criminally ignored. =( And, again, this is from someone who is only here because of TFA. So, it's not like I'm some OT fanboy pining for the old stuff.
