The Acolyte Is Just Another Mediocre “Star Wars” Show: The Critics Must Be Crazy

The Acolyte: The critics have to be insane. I will say it again because I have said it before. This time, the professional media class’s profoundly strange sensibilities have been piqued by Star Wars: The Acolyte. That and Rotten Tomatoes, the malfunctioning aggregation system.

If you browse the internet, you would not know that the newest House of Mouse show is, at best, mediocre. Look at that: such a large gap. There are numerous causes behind it. We will arrive there briefly. Initially:

The Acolyte takes place in the last days of the High Republic, just before the long era of peace and prosperity came crashing down into turmoil and strife—at least partly thanks to the arrogance of the Jedi Order itself. Partly, too, thanks to a mysterious new villain who, we can only hope, turns out to be Darth Plagueis. Seriously, it was a long time ago. 100 years before the rise of the Empire.

We have been stuck in the Skywalker era for so long that even a show like Andor, which has no Jedi and never mentions the Force or Luke Skywalker, still takes place within the years of the Imperial rise and fall. It is a breath of fresh air to see a Star Wars show actually branch out. This is a cool idea for a new Star Wars setting that we have previously only seen in games, comics, and books.

Sadly, The Acolyte barely makes use of the new setting to feel truly fresh, and it still harbors many of the worst tendencies of the franchise. This could be set two years before the prequel trilogy, and nobody would be the wiser.
