Ok. let's talk Sith.
First of all- "There can be only 2?" Was this always true? or was there a time when there was a whole bunch of them? If there were always only 2, I don't see how they could have been that big a problem, especially in the past when the Jedi were so numerous and prosperous. Anyway.
Let's talk about the Sith we do know. Vader was the coolest, and baddest. Palpatine makes a nice "evil Master" type, and even the toughest critics of TPM will grant you that Maul was was one bad mamma-jamma. I haven't seen AOTC yet, but this Dooku character looks kinda stuffy. I know I should wait to see it, I don't even know if he's going to be back for III.
But I want to take another look at Maul. Sure, he's dead, and he ain't coming back, Lucas has told us over and over. And after TPM, there was some debate as to whether he should come back or not. At the time I was all for his permanent retirement. But now that I think of it, part of what makes a good serial/comic/series is the return of a really great crowd pleasin' villian, over and over. Imagine the first screen shots of Vader in ESB or ROTJ. He'd get standing ovations. Maul was fun to watch, he didn't even need the lines he had. Maybe he and Vader could duke it out in III to see who's the baddest. Oh well.
Say, another question, Dooku is an old guy, what was he doing during TPM? And if he's a Sith, is he a newly initiated Sith, because he wasn't one of the 2 in TPM. Is this just some evil hobby he picked up after he retired? I'm terribly uniformed on the EU, maybe someone could help me out. Thanks
