Nice end to the regular series, with a return to the tropes and angst from the early series, and a focus on the changing relationship between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. They connected via the Force and had a lightsaber duel that was actually about feelings. This what I'm here for, and I appreciated a last hurrah in that line. That said, the planet of the episode was possibly not well thought out, and Obi-Wan really should be better at planning by now.
Were I to reread, I'd probably skip the Tahl arc that took up the last four books.
