Despite fans ending up being relatively satisfied with 'Obi-Wan Kenobi', it seems it still has a way to go.

Now that 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' concluded its first season, fans are weighing Disney's recent attempts at bringing the 'Star Wars' universe to small screens. Naturally, everyone has their own rankings, but it seems that the Jedi Master story is far from being top tier, according to fans who took part in ranking 'Star Wars' TV shows in a thread on Reddit.

The first place is almost unilaterally given to two shows: 'The Mandalorian' and 'Clone Wars', with 'Rebels' occasionally appearing in someone's top three as well. 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' ends up being placed somewhere in the middle, but not as high as one would expect following the wave of delight after the finale premiere.

The problem with 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' seems to be that the final episode was way better than the previous ones, even though Part VI has satisfied almost every 'Star Wars' fan. Still, 'The Mandalorian', 'Clone Wars' and 'Rebels' appeared to be more consistent and compelling.

And some fans think it's a pity, because 'Kenobi' surely had its chances.

"And the sad part is that it Kenobi should of been of the minimum same quality of Mando. It’s Ewan and Hayden returning and this is the best they can give us? Poorly written show with some outstanding moments sprinkled throughout." – /sickricola.

The sentiment is reflected in the show's current audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes, as it only has very modest 63% compared to critic rating of 83%. In the end, the decent finale was not enough to save the entire show.

"67% for Kenobi is about right. It’s an average to slightly above average show. The finale isn’t enough to make up for the rest of the season." – /MAU13717235.

Among the shows that appeared to have disappointed fans the most are 'The Book of Boba Fett' and 'Bad Batch', with the first one "somehow" making Boba Fett "boring", and the second one lacking compelling characters despite being described as potentially interesting by the majority of fans.
