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

I just rewatched the pilot movie. The action scenes were great, but there were quite a few embarrassing elements. I'd forgotten how annoying Ahsoka was when she first appeared...

I'd also forgotten how the initial episodes of the series were always Obi-Wan/Anakin fights Grevious/Dooku/Ventress

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

Yeah, the series really evolved in complexity and depth as it went on. Ahsoka, in particular, embodies that ... maturation. Though, admittedly, it never really leaves the Obi-Wan/Anakin duels Grievous/Dooku/whoever - unless you add Ahsoka to the mix. Which was always fine by me.

I would say by Season Three they definitely shifted away from Jedi vs. Sith lightsaber fights and moved more into a sweeping anthology of the entire war.

I can't help myself I'm having a huge Netflix Clone Wars marathon! I'm watching the pre-series episodes (Cat and Mouse, Hidden Enemy, Clone Cadets, Supply Lines) then I'll switch to S2 because I saw S1 several times.

^ That's awesome.

Once I have the time, I'm definitely going to try and do the chronological viewing order. That should make for an interesting experience.

Me too. Netflix will make that a lot easier since it won't involve constantly changing discs.

I'm just shocked that I'm getting Blu Ray quality images from a streaming video on my PS3! It looks gorgeous! I saw the entire series on standard def tv up until the very end so this is quite the treat.

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

Netflix carrying the entire series is extra great for those of us who don't own all of the first five seasons on disc, not just because of the constant disc switching. Hopefully the entire six-year run of the series will remain posted for a good long time so a lot of fans can successfully play catchup.

I started back on season one after finishing the series myself. It feels like it takes forever to get away from Grievous and freighters...

^ Which is why I think the chronological order might be better. It spreads out the weaker (production-wise) early episodes a bit. Maybe that'll give the series a different (and more engaging) feel.

Same here. I just got my first HDTV last year, and the show looks gorgeous in HD.

Did you pick up the media remote? Quite worth the $20 IMO. I got the old style but I imagine the new one is good as well.

Nah, I just use my wired controller. I mainly watch DVR and not Netflix.

I just realized something. I just watched the Clone Wars pilot movie. Wasn't there a scene where somebody fights a monster like a Gundark or something in it? Cause that wasn't in the version I just watched?

No, but Mace does fight two Gundarks in one of the new episodes.

That's what reminded me of it, actually.

You know what? I'm thinking I remember now... it was a deleted scene that was on the DVD, but not on the movie, is that right?

All I remember as far as creatures in the deleted scenes is something that was supposed to be a rancor but was an absolutely awful incompetent attempt at depicting a rancor.
