The Clone Wars

I'm watching The Clone Wars. its a series that ran on thr Cartoon Network for 5 & 1/2 seasons. I'm enjoying it tremendously. The animation is often amazing and the tone is surprisingly mature and gritty for a children's cartoon. Are there any other fans of tis show out there?

Lots of fans here. I'm not even that big a Star Wars fan, and I thought The Clone Wars was fantastic.

I just started a couple weeks ago; I'm about halfway through season 1. There have been some good ones, and there have been some real stinkers. Some of the character movements and dialogue are awkward at times.

Re: The Clone Wars

There are a surprising number of plot twists and a lot of character development; esp for a kid's cartoon. Several 2-5 episode story arcs. Really keeps you interested. I'm in Season 4 now.

I'm surprised when people suddenly discover shows. How do they not know this? Great show and season 6 was epic.

Re: The Clone Wars

Personally, I don't watch a lot of tv. Most tv is stupid and boring and the commercials are agonizing to sit through. I count on friends and co-workers to clue me in on shows they like and then I wait for them to show up on Netflix, then I kick the show's tires for a few episodes.

When I say "I discover" a show, it more accurately means "I finally got around to watching" a show.

Do you have Netflix? If so, you should watch it. Season 6 was great.

Re: The Clone Wars

I recently finally got round to watching Season 5, and have now decided to rewatch s1-4 but in chronological order. As laid out by the Star Wars site-
http://www.starwars.com/news/star-wa...l-episodeorder

Up to 202 at the moment, funny that I can't watch the s1 finale until well into s3.



Anyone know if s6 will ever be released on DVD? I don't wanna subsribe to Netflix solely for that.
Esp when s5 wasn't that great. Yes it was 20 episodes but it felt slightly a con with all the 4-part arc, thus feeling more like 5 episodes really. And good god the first three arcs were hard to get through. A tedious rebellion one about some people I couldn't care less about, some effin younglings and that annoying pirate guy (never liked him.) And then that godawful droids arc; I was seriously losing the will to live during parts of that.
The last two arcs were enjoyable at least.




As I say I'm rewatching it all, but I am skipping through certain ones. As Stevil2001 says; there are some stinkers. If you think I'm gonna sit through those Jar Jar episodes for a second time you can think again!

Re: The Clone Wars

It's an uneven series. I really wish if they would had done an anthology with different arc very loosely tired together or they could had focused on the main cast and a consistently darkening tone. It could had been great, the way it it just has some great arcs.
