Star Wars, nothing but Star Wars...


Recommended Posts

The second one is pretty excellent. It takes a season or two to get its footing, but it gets a lot better as it goes along. There is an oddity in the first two-and-a-half seasons, though, in that many of the episodes randomly jump around in the timeline without any warning whatsoever. That gets cleared up in the second half of season three, though, which is also where the show almost doubles in storytelling quality. So, in short, Clone Wars has its quirks, but it's totally worth your time if you're a Star Wars fan.

Are there any "wow" episodes that you would recommend for someone trying to get into the show?

I definitely wouldn't skip straight to Revenge; there's six or seven other episodes that lead into that one. It should also be noted that Ahsoka, who's arguably the main character of the show, is introduced in the Clone Wars movie, so even though it's not a good movie, it's recommended viewing before the series.

From Season 1:

Rookies - An entirely clone-centric soldier story.

Cloak of Darkness - Badass from beginning to end.

The Ryloth Trilogy: Storm over Ryloth, Innocents of Ryloth, and Liberty on Ryloth - A 3-part story, each part focusing on a different aspect of war and how it affects all involved.

Hostage Crisis - Introduces a totally badass original bounty hunter villain, and also ups the level of on-screen violence considerably.

Season 2:

Landing at Point Rain - Epic epic epic epic epic battle. The first in a great 4-part arc featuring a return to Geonosis from Attack of the Clones.

The Boba Fett trilogy: Death Trap; R2 Come Home; Lethal Trackdown - A 3-part arc featuring young Boba Fett attempting revenge on Mace Windu.

Season 3:

Assassin - Ahsoka learns to deal with Force visions and seeing the future.

The Nightsisters Trilogy: Nightsisters, Monster, and Witches of the Mist - Dark side witches, Sith apprentices, and lots of death. The first time the show really completely lived up to its potential as a Star Wars series.

The Mortis Trilogy: Overlords, Altar of Mortis, and Ghosts of Mortis - Takes place entirely in a world literally made of the Force, where the light and dark sides take personified form. Big ramifications for the entire saga.

Padawan Lost and Wookiee Hunt - 2-part Season 3 finale, featuring awesome character focus on Ahsoka and a guest appearance by Chewbacca!

Season 4:

Darkness on Umbara, The General, Plan of Dissent, and Carnage of Krell - 4-part arc where the clones have to decide whether or not they truly are human and deserve more than to be cannon fodder. Shockingly amazing; easily the best story the show's ever done.

There's tons of other great episodes, like the 4-part finale to Season 4, but those are more continuity-heavy.

Before anyone starts celebrating with Muppets, I'd like to point out that this is not being confirmed by anyone at Disney or Lucasfilm yet. This is based off of "sources" which is code for someone who was at a meeting talking to someone else who then mentioned it in a off-handed remark at lunch with Bob from accounting who's hearing isn't the best who then tells that big mouth Susie who will say anything to get attention. If it is true, Kasden did a good job then but his track record since then has been less than stellar. See Dreamcatcher, The Bodyguard, Mumford, and Wyatt Earp. Yes, this is the man who wrote the Big Chill and The Accidental Tourist but his best days are gone by. Also, I think it;s a little premature to hire someone to write Episode VIII when VII hasn't even entered official pre-production. When there's official word, then I might celebrate. Until then, let's just pay attention to episode VII because that's going to be the one that helps convince people if there is even going to be an Episode VIII.

If you've actually seen the footage that's been released, you know why so many of the pilots were cut. None of them were as good as the ones that actually ended up in the movie. One of the A-Wing pilots was a woman in her fifties or sixties, which was so ridiculous it was simultaneously mind-boggling and hilarious. Hell, they even had a Mon Calamari pilot, too, all rigged up with the animatronics and everything. That hit the floor as well.

True but how many of them had a page and a half of dialogue then got cut that far into production?

Still, this is really showing that they need female characters that matter in the new trilogy, preferably ones that don't have a royal title, die of broken hearts, or have seriously nothing to do all movie except have aliens use them for dress-up.
