Though at one point in the EU there was a Sith empire after the Empire's reign that formed that was about some level of unity between the Lords.

What comic was it?

I can't remember the name, but I do remember their new Empire. They had the "Rule of One" instead of the Rule of Two; you were supposed to hold the Empire itself above all else and be willing to sacrifice anything for it.

It says something about how terrible the Sith are that such a horrifyingly fascist government was actually an improvement.

The One Sith. Seems they mostly appeared in Legacy of the Force and Legacy.

Is The People vs. George Lucas an informative documentary or is it just some jagoff whining about the prequels?

I've not watched it myself, but Mark Hamill himself seems to take the latter position:

"They had the "Rule of One" instead of the Rule of Two; you were supposed to hold the Empire itself above all else and be willing to sacrifice anything for it."

So instead of Nazi Germany they became Imperial Japan.

Nevertheless, you must persist.

@Tuckerscreator While this is funny, the implications are actually intentional subtext. Vader is meant to be, behind the scary mask and voice, a somewhat pathetic individual who does petty chores for Sidious (in Lucas's words "He isn't The Devil, he's the guy The Devil sends to go fetch cigarettes").

"Is The People vs. George Lucas an informative documentary or is it just some jagoff whining about the prequels?"

Well...it's both. It was riding the wave of Red Letter Media's peak popularity, so it was definitely made with an agenda, but it's still a fairly informative documentary about the productions and George Lucas's impact on them for better or for worse. I think it's a fairly accurate time capsule to the anti-Prequel fandom's opinion immediately before Lucasfilm's sale.

Is it known why they got the boot? GOT's ending? That tone-deaf show about the South winning the Civil War? Something else?

Good. I wasn't worried about the sex and violence—Disney would have kept that under control. But those two have many other problems that I'm sure GoT fans can go into more detail on. These were the guys who said "themes are for 8th-grade book reports."

As for The Mandalorian, I'm not super crazy about the voice. Maybe because I was expecting Boba Fett, and this is (probably) someone else. Besides, it was just two words. Other than that, it looks great.

They claim it's because their "schedule is full"... but come on, nobody keeps their old schedule against STAR WARS.

For anyone with any lingering doubts about their aptitude, read this monster of a thread where Benioff and Weiss went into detail about how thoroughly incompetent they were when making Game of Thrones.

The whole Q&A in a nutshell.

So, as someone who didn't watch it, GOT's ending legit was genuinely bad-bad, not "nothing with this amount of hype could reasonably satisfy everyone under any circumstance"-type bad, right?

The most charitable words I've heard spoken about it are, "They didn't have the time to tell the story they wanted to tell."

The actual finale I didn’t think was bad, it was just everything leading up to it...
