Lol, have you seen 'the Lawless'? Maul is awesome - 'nough said.

I've seen a couple episodes featuring him. However "awesome" he is is besides the point, I don't believe in bringing characters back from the dead, it trivializes everything that happened to them prior. It's ****** writing and a blatant gimmick. One that worked for you, apparently.
DROID DOES.

And everyone else... I really don't see how making Maul epic and awesome can make at all trivialize him. But you obviously are in no position to comment as you have not see all the episodes.

I don't need to subject myself to every episode of a mediocre television show to know that it is mediocre. I'm a writer by trade, and I understand poor writing. Evidently you do not, but I won't hold that against you.

If by "everyone else" you are referring to the show's target audience, well -- that target audience is children and tweens. Not exactly an age bracket known for their refined taste in entertainment or appreciation for good writing.

Your a writer, that's great - I'm sure it says in your guide to writing: "Don't bring characters back from the dead! Its gimmicky!" But you can't judge the quality of a story purely based on the fact that one character has come back from the dead. That's just silly. And by 'everyone else' I mean all the articles I've read evidently not written by 'tweens' and the general consensus on these very forums.

But again, you haven't watched it so how can you comment?

Where did Anakin learn it from?

And no he wasn't a major character as in Anakin, but he still said and did more than Maul and Boba put together.
Who the hell knows why WIndu would or wouldn't do anything. The writers can make up whatever they want. It made no sense to bring Maul back either, but they did, and it turned out pretty awesome. We discover Maul isn't a one dimensional tool like he seemed in the movie. He's actually quite smart and calculating, and has deep emotions for his brother. The same can be done with Windu, except maybe make him a bad guy or something.

At bolded. I dunno. Maul killed Jinn, which is the main reason why Kenobi decided to master soresu. Boba kidnaps Han, which is pretty important too.

No he didn't. The ability that Anakin learned was a Jedi ability that required sacrifice.
