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

I don't remember them real clearly, but I'm pretty sure I liked the Mortis trilogy too.

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

Certainly lots of people liked those episodes. I just found them irritating.

I like to feel like I'm watching Star Wars when I'm watching Star Wars. The status quo on TCW is lots of clones and lots of Jedi smashing tinnies as the war unfolds throughout the galaxy. When the series deviated away from that I found myself enjoying it less. This Mortis Trilogy I included them in my rewatch of the series this summer and I'll be skipping it the next time... it was actually worse than I'd remembered.

The story was pointless. It felt like someone asked the writers, "Think of the stupidest possible way that we could include a brief image of Darth Vader's face." Never at any time in enjoying the Star Wars universe did I feel the need to have the source o' the force explained to me like some stoned first year philosophy student with bad ideas. Everything about it took me out of the very coherent mise-en-scene of the series and made me feel like it wasn't Star Wars.

But anyway, that's just my opinion, man. [/thedude]

The source of the Force was explained in both ANH(1977) and TESB(1980); it had nothing to do with Mortis. The stoned first year philosophy students in question were Ben and Yoda.

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

There is a separate thread, but since this one continues to remain active, I figured what the hell. This really should probably be closed soon, as we're probably not gonna get any further real Clone Wars news (at least not on Season Five anyway .

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

The show is apparently in syndecation now. It's been on one of my local network channels on Sundays at 11:00. I haven't watched them since I already own the first two seasons, but once they hit S3 I'll probably start.
I'm wondering if they are still going once the last few new episodes are released if they'll eventually add them to the rotation, or if it'll always end at S5.

Are they syndicated in broadcast order or chronological order?

They could have the entire surviving cast of A New Hope do cameos, and I still wouldn't watch Rebels, as long as it's not on basic cable. Ditto for any further Clone Wars that might come down the pike.

Too bad, but c'est la guerre, and I'm unlikely to lose one second of sleep over it. I'm a huge Star Wars fan, but I'm way past paying for crap I don't want to watch, which would be pretty much everything besides the one show I'd be buying the extra channels for. I'll just wait for it to trickle down to something my box can decode.

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

I'm going to have to watch Rebels on another medium besides cable television, because if it's going to air exclusively on Disney XD after the premiere episodes are out of the way I'm not subscribing to a whole new digital channel package just to watch one 30-minute animated show, Star Wars or not.

You might be surprised at how many brand-new Clone Wars episodes ended up on YouTube mere hours after they originally aired on the Cartoon Network and many were never pulled down. I'm sure I'll catch Rebels and get to see all the episodes I want, but it won't be on Disney XD. It will help make XD a bigger and more popular channel, but it doesn't do much for the wider audience or for Star Wars fans.

I'm not entirely sure, but they appear to be in broadcast order.
I just double checked and apparently it's been pulled from the local station's schedule already.
EDIT: I just looked and according to this story from Club Jade they are (or were?) airing them in chronological order.

I highly doubt they're being presented in chronological order. From what I've seen they appear to be very slowly moving through broadcast order. Isn't chronological order somewhat complicated?
