Star Wars - The Clone Wars...
« on: January 31, 2011, 01:44:29 PM »
... AKA the 3D cartoon, which is better than the prequels.

So I just watched recently a couple of episodes of the third season, and I must say... I'm surprised.
This show isn't THAT bad. Sure, the old Clone Wars cartoon was much better... but I don't care.
If I'm able to enjoy something prequel related... it's good.

Anyway. The latest episode was interesting, albeit a bit rushed. I never thought I would think that Anakin is badass... but then this episode proved me wrong. Go check it out on youtube or something. It's episode 15 from series 3.

Hm. I certainly did not expect this.

It's like they're trying to make up for what the prequels didn't do right. Which is everything.

They're actually giving CHARACTER to the characters in the prequels.

Honestly, I love the show.  I have Season One on DVD, with plans to snap up Season Two, and I eagerly await Season Three as I missed a few episodes, due to not having a TV.

And as for the episode with Greedo...  Yes, it officially did away with some EU backstory, which made for a mess for us at Wookieepedia to clean up, but it was still a good episode.  He got some hot Twi'lek lovin'.  And I was perfectly fine for him speaking Basic (English), as I've been voicing an English Greedo for a while.

My fave episode so far this season?  Pursuit of Peace.  Others may not have cared for the political commentary, but I loved that episode.  It gave us a glimpse into the socio-economic impact the war is having on the common man, something we would otherwise never get to see.

LoL, we see ZERO effect of the war on ANYONE in the movies.

There is a war? I thought it was just random Jedi shenanigans

Well, there's a war occurring in the background, with points of interest being the character development and Jedi shenanigans.

Last week's episode was downright weird.  Not one of my faves, that's for sure.  It had some interesting points, but I could see where it was also influenced very heavily by Avatar and other things.  It just was too out-there for my taste, didn't seem to fit with the tone that the series was trying to convey.  I'd sooner see it in some EU novel.

I ripped music from the Wii version of the Lego Clone Wars game.
I regret nothing, it's awesome. I'm so buying this game for PC when I have the money again. : D

Here, have some:

Topic dead.


...derailing into betting what's Ashoka's death going to be like. 8D

Too bad they probably won't kill her.

I'm betting it'll either be her escaping from the galaxy forever when [parasitic bomb] hits the fan, or she's gonna lose her jedi powers (or swear to never use them again because Annie went boo-boo or some [parasitic bomb]) and join the Alliance.

Well, this coming weekend is the US premiere of the season finale, which will (hopefully) include a sneak peak into Season Four.  As usual, I plan to watch it.  Then I get to hop onto Wookieepedia and thwart people trying to add in their fanon.

REVIVING! The "old" Clone Wars cartoon is so [tornado fang]ing awesome.

I wouldn't ever believe Grievous can be so badass... I was proven wrong. AND DAT VOICE!

A true gem indeed. My favorite battles had to be the ones with Mace Windu. That [chameleon sting]er was running at, like, 100 mph while slashing those hoards of droids (forgot exactly who he fought).

As awesome as that show was, Samurai Jack was Genndy's best work. Hands down.

Did you mean it like JEDI who pwn Grievous, or did you mean GRIEVOUS BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF JEDI?
Because the first one is only true when we take this into account:

And this was [tornado fang]ing hilarious.

Overall, the battles were so over the top, especially with Mace Windu in charge. The [tornado fang]er was beating up droids BARE HANDED.

I really much prefer Genndy's cartoon over the 3D stuff.

I wish they had Genndy handle the series.

Genndy should handle a lot of things.

A Hellboy cartoon by him would be nice.

Yeah, a Hellboy cartoon under his helm would probably be very good.
