Do you need a little extra help on your path as a Jedi – at least in how to handle a lightsaber? We’ll, you can just take a class.
In San Francisco some Star Wars fans got together and started offering a course in fighting with a lightsaber as the Golden Knights, led by Alain Bloch as the “Jedi Master”, who is actually has a background in martial arts and stage combat (and looks a bit like later-prequel Obi-Wan Kenobi…)
Although it sounds a bit silly, and some treat it as such at the start, many in the class come over to the Light Side. “At first they giggle because they think it’s a little silly. Then they’re like, actually that’s kind of cool,” said Julio Reyes, a student. “Then they start asking more questions.”
Although apparently there are a few Sith out there as well.
This isn’t the first class offered in fighting with a lightsaber – young Padawans have been taught the ways of the elegant weapon and fend of Darth Vader daily at Walt Disney World since 2007.
In the next new Merlin, as a deadly net closes in around Arthur, including a plot by his own wife, Gwen, Merlin finds himself far from Camelot. Watch what happens tomorrow night at 10/9c on Syfy!
And after the preview video below, check out star Colin Morgan’s recap of last week’s episode, “A Lesson in Vengeance”
Less than 48 hours after airing the (from what I understand) heart-wrenching finale of Primeval: New World in Canada, SPACE has decided not to renew the series, according to postings from the official Twitter/Facebook accounts. However, word is that Entertainment One are shopping around for other investors – the show has been sold to 17 markets, although it has not yet aired in at least some of them (Syfy has still not announced a premiere date), so there is some hope still, but I have a feeling it is a long shot.
But if you want to help out, take to twitter and use the #SavePrimevalNW hashtag and let them know you want more!
