1. "Watched the first two" In response to Reply # 0
The first episode features an animation style that blew me away. Loved every second of it, and I'm not really into Star Wars. Actually it makes sense that this one would resonate because the only thing that I think is revolutionary about the original Star Wars is the production design, and this was groundbreaking to me in the blend of animation/visual styles.
The second one was cute but will probably only be loved by elementary school aged kids.
---- I check for: Serengeti, Zeroh, Open Mike Eagle, Jeremiah Jae, Moka Only.

binging - but that first episode The Duel was amazing visually, and there was a LOT packed into it in terms of story.
I really love the freedom they gave the studios with these not having to be held to cannon - so they were able to really be creative. Those creative ideas could end up making their way into cannon also.

watching these. It’s a pretty unique experience these days - typically with episodic TV shows either they release all at once and you have to binge watch to avoid spoilers, or they release every week and you have to rush to watch that day to avoid spoilers. Recently that has meant for both the Marvel shows and Mandalorian I end up having to get up and watch at 6am before work when I’m really tired, or on a break from work on my computer or my phone. In both cases not an optimal viewing experience, but it’s either that or have something spoiled.
With Visions though, since each episode is completely separate, and also short and digestible, I can take my time and watch when I have a moment with the kids doing something else (or sleep) in my basement with my projector screen. And if I want I can run an episode back to back to really catch everything.
I’m just through episode three at this point. I REALLY loved that one (The Twins) and how it leaned all the way into the anime style of hyperbole in storytelling, and it just feels so good to see a Star Wars story not hampered down by the rules of cannon or connections to other characters.

I know there's a book based on The Duel that I may check out. But they need to continue more of the stories...The Ninth Jedi was pretty mindblowing, and there were several cliffhangers. I still have a couple more episodes to check out.
