1. Ewoks

If you're looking at your screen sideways because you had no idea this show even existed, fret not - I also didn't know about it until recently.

Ewoks is that quirky little outlier in the vast expanse of the Star Wars universe that nobody really talks about. It's a show that, at first glance, feels like it wandered off and ended up lost in a Saturday morning cartoon lineup, blinking in confusion under the harsh, Earthly light of day. Now, don't get me wrong; Ewoks has its charms, much like a peculiar relic found at the back of an antique shop. It's unique, undoubtedly, with its focus on the fluffy, forest-dwelling creatures known for their surprising prowess in taking down an entire Empire. Yet, therein lies its conundrum: nestled amidst epic tales of Jedi, Sith, and galactic rebellions, Ewoks feels like it's dancing to the beat of its own drum, off in the woods, somewhat disconnected from the overarching narrative that fans cling to with the fervor of a Wookiee in a tug-of-war contest.

The show feels a bit like inviting a band of Ewoks to a lightsaber duel – intriguing, sure, but slightly out of place. The show dives deep into the day-to-day of Ewok life with a whimsicality that's both its greatest strength and its Achilles' heel. It's weird, but not the lovable kind of weird that grows on you over time; it's the kind that leaves you scratching your head, wondering if you're really watching a Star Wars series or if you've accidentally stumbled into a parallel universe where the franchise's main themes of conflict, moral ambiguity, and heroism are replaced with tales that might feel more at home in a children's fairy tale book.

This disconnect from the core elements that define Star Wars doesn't do Ewoks any favors, relegating it to the fringes of the galaxy, where it's appreciated for its novelty but not necessarily embraced for adding depth to the lore we love.
