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

I forgot to mention that I really enjoyed this morning's episode. I thought it was a great conclusion to a fun arc. I'm wonder if she survives Order 66 if Katooni will be joinging up with Hondo's pirates.
I think that is my only problem with the series, there are a lot of little things like that that will probably never be followed up on.

Yeah he is, the story of the clone commandos is a bit more complicated, but he basically is.

At last! An episode that had me captivated from beginning to end. A Necessary Bond was IMHO the most watchable and exciting show from season 5 so far.

This thread isn't doing spoilers, right?


Great fun to watch, the best this season and probably in my top 5 for the series. Too bad the buildup was too slow... this should have been a 3 story arc... and the last arc (rebels), too.

It was a cute episode and this arc was more enjoyable than the last; although I'm not fond of all the episodes being 4 part arcs this season. This group of kids would be fun to watch as adults in a series. Sadly, that won't happen.

Is having that be Slave 1 a nice tie in, or a trite "small galaxy" syndrome moment?

It's the result of things that happened with Boba in an earlier season.

Secret Weapons was a cute light episode. 47 and Colonel Plankton were amusing enough. Droids are an odd duck in Star Wars, some seem to pick up sentience which is acknowledged somewhat but they're still considered disposable tools in general. Maybe the personalities are seen as neural net quirks they acquire but the organics don't really believe they've aquired "life".

This was pretty tedious. Mostly what I was thinking over and over was "Please, let this not be another 4-part arc."

At first, I was thinking, "Oh, this episode explains how R2-D2 got those powerful rockets and stuff." But then I realized -- didn't he already have them in AOTC, which took place before this?

I think this was probably my least favorite episode so far this season. It wasn't really bad, there just wasn't really anything that interesting about it IMO.

It doesn't appear so. According to the Clone Wars wiki, there's one more episode before Christmas, then the first episode of 2013 is a Padmé episode.

Oh, that was pretty bad. It was probably the worst episode in the past couple of seasons. Ok the fight scene with the artificial gravity turned off was pretty funny but the rest of it was tedious.
