Clone Wars: 2X7 "Legacy of Terror" (spoilers)

Episode Brief: When Luminara goes missing, Obi-Wan and Ki-Adi-Mundi lead a platoon of clones in search of her. When the search leads to a mysterious lair, the Jedi are faced with a horde of undead warriors.
Yeah, you read that right. Zombies, alien ones, on a Star Wars cartoon.

This episode amounted to a zombie/ALIENS/Borg mish-mash, that was pretty dark, like this season has been (I'm not complaining.)

Does Luminara Unduli have Obi Wan out ranked?

Re: Clone Wars: 2X7 "Legacy of Terror" (spoilers)

Interesting episode though I wish that they would move on from the Genosis storyline. By now we could've had another "movie" with just the Geonosis material. I had just heard about the "Zombie Stormtroopers" EU book that was recently released ("Death Troopers"). Now, it looks like we've had "Zombie Geonosian Soldiers" and it looks like next week we'll have "Zombie Clone Troopers" (and "Zombie Jedi" too?). The scene with the Geonosian Queen reminded me a LOT of "Aliens", particularly the eggs the drones were placing on the ground around the Queen. I half expected there to be "face huggers" getting ready to pop out of them.
What I thought was pretty interesting about this episode is that the Republic forces have now captured TWO Separatist leaders whom have, at least so far, NOT escaped Republic custody (Wat Tambor was captured on Ryloth). We know that they will eventually escape like Gunray did since they were, of course, all free (to be slain by Anakin/Vader) in ROTS but I kept expecting that Poggle would found a way to break free from Obi-Wan during their escape but he didn't. Even though we know they will get away somehow, it's nice to know that the villians aren't invincible nor do they ALWAYS get away scot-free in the end every time.
Oh, and I liked how they threw in a line from ESB: "That's not true. That's impossible"- spoken by Anakin, no less.

Pretty good episode. Nice to have a change of pace horror episode. Nice to learn more about Geonosian culture/biology. So is the queen supposed to be the REAL leader of Geonosis then? Does this conflict with pre-existing information?

Yeah this one had several pretty good lines. My favorite was the exchange between Obi-wan and Anakin "I was going to study that!" "You can study the bottom of my boot".

Good episode. Much better Star Was zombie story than Death Troopers.

I was really impressed by the work the animators did with the lighting in this episode. Very moody and creepy and subtle and effective. And good work on the lights from the Troopers' helmets -- very realistic-looking, the beams illuminating the catacomb walls and such. The one problem I had lighting-wise was that I would've expected the lightsabers to produce a lot more interactive lighting with the walls and characters and such.

Actually I believe - at this time - they are both Jedi Masters. Obi-Wan, however, is eventually given a seat on the Council.

I was sickly amused by the Battle Droid "Don't leave without me!"

They used the K word, "kill" being forbidden in American cartoons for the most part.

I'm left wondering why the Queen could speak English ("Basic", is it called?), but no other Geonosians ever do.

^^ That's why she's the queen! She took a correspondence course in Basic

^ Makes sense to me.

Did anyone else get a Starship Troopers vibe from this episode too?

Wasn't the 90s CGI Troopers toon in the same format? A series of linked episodes showing one campaign on one planet before moving onto the next one?

^ Yeah, but I meant storyline wise I'm sorry I wasn't clearer.

Brain Bug - Queen (Said they had a hive mind collective consciousness)
Body Snatcher - Worm (Take over someone's brain).
Geonosian - Warrior Bugs

Not the best of the series, but still a good episode. Very dark. I really liked the character work between Obi-Wan and Anakin at the end -- showcasing how their different approaches lead to natural, but still fairly good-natured tensions. The beginnings of their subsequent hatred are being given some nice touches in these episodes.

Have to say I'm very bothered that we've got Jedi Masters--members of an order to whom "this crude matter" is supposed to be irrelevant--referring to the Geonosians as "bugs." (Anakin, sure, but Luminara?) Would've been nice to see a Geonosian Jedi in there somewhere, reacting.
