I remember reading about that case a few years back. Terravision  patent got invalidated.

There was a bunch of tech in it that seemed interesting at first glance, but wasn't really new in restrospect: Like course-to-fine loading which had been in games (and internet loading images) for years prior to Terravision. Birds eye view of a place might as well be any flight sim. IMO the tech felt more like "game technology but applied to real-world satellite imagery with heightmaps".

It was kinda annoying that the most interesting Boba Fett episodes so far (5,6) were basically The Mandalorian episodes.

I did kind of felt "insulted on Boba Fett's behalf".

Peacemaker is the surprise hit for me. I liked the Suicide Squad movie by James Gunn, but John Cena as the main character in his own series? I was skeptical. But the show proved to be the best DC live action series so far.

Night Sky on Amazon Prime.

It's Sci-Fi with a family vibe like Stranger Things. Starts slow but progresses quite well. It's one of a few TV series I managed to keep me interested past the first few episodes. I hope they can keep it up.



Edit: Just finished Season 1.... No spoilers....

Kenobi was a pretty mediocre series but with exciting highlights, those being the Darth Vader scenes.

Reva is a walking plot hole.
