that's really interesting, I had never heard that. It may explain why I liked the TV show but was not impressed by the movie. Then again, I suspect that many fans WANTED to know what reavers were, I didn't, and was thus dissappointed by the explanation of the space boogeymen.
Certainly explaining the force for fans that wanted to know, didn't go well for Lucas.
