Hello and welcome to another week of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a series. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.
What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask?
When a show hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a show hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the show hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode Five
Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the episode:
Banana Meter Rating: 80%
This is probably the strongest episode of the season so far. I loved the backstory with Anakin and Obi-Wan, as well as the reveal of the backstory for the Third Sister. It’s setting up to a fairly epic conclusion.
Banana Meter Rating: 97%
Dodgy de-aging aside, episode 5 of Obi-Wan Kenobi is great. It’s an improvement on last week’s filler episode and introduces interesting elements to the story, creating a great setup for next week’s final episode.
Banana Meter Rating: 60%
The fifth episode of OBI-WAN KENOBI is certainly a step up from last week’s. The action is intense and pulsating, and the stakes have more weight this time around, with smart uses of flashbacks in between intense moments of tension to exacerbate the suspense. It works brilliantly.
