Yeah, the ending kind of surprised me.

So, 13 episodes, I assume that means 3 - 5 Arcs? Are the episodes in Arc order? (I've been avoiding spoilers mostly)

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

Not as many arcs as many of us prefer, but oh well - for a cancelled TV series getting 13 more episodes as streaming content isn't too shabby. In the old days we'd be waiting and hoping that a network like the Sci-Fi Channel would pick up the show or, failing that, someone would spearhead a direct-to-DVD fan effort.

What counts is that the show received a decent send-off (even though I'm not a fan of them wasting time on a Jar Jar arc) and they still left room for future content in other avenues.

When I first heard it was canceled, I figured we'd get nothing, maybe at best a couple of half-finished episodes might get completed. To get a full and fully-realized season was way beyond anything I had hoped to get.

They even convinced me to endure new Jar Jar content. That's no small feat.

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

I had a similar mindset. "Well, Disney bought Lucasfilm and now the show's been cancelled. Even the Hasbro toys and collectibles based on the show have been stopped. Guess we can kiss any more episodes bye-bye and forget about them." It was a pretty common opinion within the circle of fans I talk to.

Learning that Filoni and his team were actually working on completing some additional arcs for release in some undetermined format was very pleasing to know, because as great as the final Cartoon Network episode was I don't think many of us wanted the last moments of the series to be Ahsoka wandering off into the Coruscant sunset. Ten years ago we'd have been hoping another cable channel would get permission to air additional episodes or that Disney would be cool with releasing some limited edition DVD containing the final episodes. Thanks to Netflix for simplifying things.

I really enjoyed watching it on Netflix...checking out an entire story arc at a time. At 22 minutes each, the show never dragged.

Does that mean it's meant to take place during season 4? I'm still trying to get a sense of the right chronological order for the series.

I know the Clovis arc was supposed to air last season (it was in the Season 5 trailer) but I only heard recently it was originally intended for Season 4. My guess it took place shortly after we met Satine because of Obi-Wan's reference to her.

the production code on the Clovis arc is 4X19-21, which places it after the Onderon arc and before the Jedi Younglings arc. Oh wait those were actually in Season Five. So it was held back from Season Five.

That does explain why it was Ian Abercrombie voicing Palpatine/Sidious and not Tim Curry. I assumed it must have been held over from earlier when I saw his name in the credits.

It was great hearing Abercrombie again. I think Curry did a much better job than he did in his first outing (The Wrong Jedi) but Abercrombie really had the voice nailed down well.

Abercrombie remains my favorite voice artist for Palpatine, but Curry's done a pretty great job trying to fill his shoes.
