At one point you couldn't buy the non-SE version of the OT, and you still can't get it in any kind of quality.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I'll take a cautious wait-and-see attitude regarding this. I don't entirely trust Disney to make all the right and best decisions with this content but there's really no practical point in complaining at the moment. I have a feeling it might not be that bad in the long run.

Not like we can do much if anything anyways.

It's not bad in the sense that I really don't give a shit one way or the other. I'm sure I won't lose one second of sleep over anything related to Star Wars ever again!

P.S. If the rumor's true, I won't be watching it through that outlet. It's just simply not worth it.

I saw the Apple story the other day. I'm assuming (and hoping) that they will release it through other means eventually.

Well, if the phrases "Star Wars" and "holiday" are this close together you just know things are not gonna end well.
Thanks for the chuckle.

On the other hand, Disney has a history of making its films available only for a short time and then putting them "in the vault" indefinitely. The wording of the release is ambiguous; it's not clear what will happen after that limited time elapses.
I worked at a video store in the late 1990s. For some reason back then, it was all the rage for movie trailer voice overs to include the suffix: "only in theatres."

This somehow led many people to think that these films would never eventually see home video and/or would stay in limbo for a very long time. We used to get customers that would come in and complain to us, "why is (such and such a film) not ever going to be available to rent?"

I'm glad that trend ended. But I sometimes wonder if it wasn't a turn-of-phrase generated by some overpercolated marketers to make more short term sales.

Only in theatres.

Only on AppleTV.

As to this mostly welcome news... I'm eager to see what remains of this series and then I'll see how I feel about it never being on the shelf next to the rest of the The Clones Wars DVD cases.

I can't believe how many fans are still so angry/bitter about TCW ending. They got their 100 episodes, unlike so many cancelled season one shows.

I REALLY wish Trek had a cartoon going on for 100 episodes right now.

I think that was probably a response to piracy -- a way of saying "This movie is only supposed to be in theaters right now, so if you see it offered on home video, then someone's trying to sell you something illegal." I still see that disclaimer in the current day.

I think the bitterness comes from the fact that a season already in production was abandoned midway, and that it was unclear whether it would ever be completed or released. And that it happened as a result of a corporate merger and thus felt rather arbitrary.

I always thought that was to encourage those damned home video renter cheapskates to go spend the money to see movies in the theater.

Nah, the people that go see the movies vastly outnumber the Clone Wars show viewers, which get like 1-2 million viewers per episode.

I would think having the show on as the same time as the movies get released would be great advertising, but I guess Disney badly wants to start over with their new SW movies and Rebels cartoon.

i stand corrected. there was a 2 disc set released in 2006 that included the originals, but that is out of print.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I have those 2006 two-disc sets. They weren't in retail circulation for very long but were definitely worth picking up for the bonus discs.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

The Star Wars The Clone Wars episode guide is pretty amazing. It just came out. It's $20 bucks in Canada so that means it's probably .20 cents in the states? I had a chance to flip through it last night and it was incredibly useful for picking out which ones to rewatch. Of course there is the internet for episode listings but the book is really well laid out and there are little pictures highlighting which characters highlight each show, locations and highlights, etc. Maybe best of all is that is lists the shows in story order, not airdate order. I look forward to rewatching these in order.

I had to laugh when I read that the two weakest points of the entire series were both heavily consulted with George Lucas! Namely the Mortis trilogy and A Sunny Day in the Void.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

What makes Mortis one of the "weakest points of the entire series"? I certainly didn't find those episodes to be worse than average in terms of inherent quality. As I recall the main problems with Mortis were that some found it incomprehensible while others were frustrated that it supported the duality of the Force ( or equivalently that the balance of the Force is between the light and dark sides ).

The Mortis arc is one of the high points of the series imo. Props to Lucas on that one.
