Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion
Cartoon Network itself initially prefaced TCW with a content advisory about the violence, one of those "This program may not be suitable for all audiences" things, though they don't seem to do that anymore.
I haven't seen the show lately, but as I remember it they used it in specific places that seemed to call for it - for example, after coming back from a commercial break when Grievous is about to kill Ron Perlman's Trandoshan smuggler.
You get hurt, hurt 'em back. You get killed, walk it off.
