Re: Star Wars: The Clone Wars New Year's Day Double Featue

I gave "Grievous Intrigue" a B+ for its fantastic action sequences. Put simply, the episode was one heckuva ride from start to finish -- though, of course, it's not without its faults. There was almost no depth to the story (aside from Obi-Wan taunting Grievous about commanding mindless droids).

"Deserters" rated a C+ from me. It's a much deeper, more meaningful and complex story -- at least as far as Rex and Cut were concerned. But the overall episode was very uneven. The dying droids were kind of interesting. But Obi-Wan's search was just plain dull. Worse, it took time away from the real heart of the story: the debate about *choice* between the two clones.
