Why ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Was Better Than ‘Book of Boba Fett’

Obi-Wan Kenobi is done after its six episodes on Disney+, and we thought it was a much more enjoyable experience than the last Star Wars TV show on streaming, The Book of Boba Fett. And if you put the shows side by side and compare them, one big difference between the two leaps out at you: The use of flashbacks. They make all the difference between a really successful show, and a really frustrating one.

‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3’ Is In Production in Greece

A low-budget independent romantic comedy, the film became a massive word-of-mouth hit in the spring and summer of 2002, and wound up grossing $241 million in the U.S. alone. Its writer and lead actress, Nia Vardalos, then spun the film off into a television series, My Big Fat Greek Life, which lasted for a single season on CBS and then into a direct sequel, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, in 2016. While not quite as wildly popular as the original, the sequel still grossed way more than its budget.
