Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 21!

This Week's Episodes:
The Jedi Who Knew Too Much
To Catch a Jedi
The Wrong Jedi

I can't say enough how much I love these episodes.
And somewhat hate them at the same,
but that is the reason I love is so much!
It is such a well crafted story!
It was great seeing Ventress and Ahsoka
(My to favorite Clone Wars characters)
Working together, and the connections between them.
I was sad to see that it was Barriss who set Ahsoka up,
I always loved their friendship,
 but of course the part that was saddest was definitely the end.
The tears start coming every time 
as soon as it hits the "welcome back" scene.
You know she made the 'right' decision, 
but it doesn't make it any easier.

Okay, done with the emotions...
Haha, check back next weekend for more episodes!
Next week starts season six!
Which is also really sad...
Anyway, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan!

Week 20!

This Week's Episodes:
Shades of Reason
The Lawless

I have to say, by this time in the series, 
the idea of Maul was growing on me.
Still don't think he should have survived, 
but these episodes are definitely some of the best in the series.
I was really excited to watch these episodes again!

I'm really excited for next week though!
Check back this weekend for more episodes!!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 19!!! Oh my goodness! Only five weeks left!
And then Rebels will be coming!

This Week's Episodes:
Secret Weapons
A Sunny Day in the Void
Missing in Action
Point of No Return

Another droid ARC. 
Although this one is better than some of the others.
Especially in animation, which was simply amazing!
Especially in the last episode with that awesome explosion! Haha
It was one of the better combinations of humor and action.
Although we all hoped to one day again see Gregor,
 but that would seem nearly impossible now that the series is over.
Maybe we'll get to see more of him in some other form.

Sorry I didn't get this one up until now!
I had a considerably busy weekend, and then I forgot about it....
Anyway, hope your still enjoying the plan!
Check back next this weekend for more episodes!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 18 of the plan!!

This Week's Episodes:
The Gathering
A Test of Strength
Bound for Rescue
A Necessary Bond

I really love these episodes!
It was great to see Ahsoka help train the next generation.
Although, I do believe they changed the story of getting your crystal(s)
and lightsaber a little bit, but it was still all pretty cool.

That's all for this week!
Check back next weekend for more episodes!!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 17!! 

This Week's Episodes:
A War on Two Fronts
Front Runners
The Soft War
Tipping Points

So, I'm still not happy about Maul coming back necessarily;
but I do now realize that it is canon, and I enjoy these episodes.
My favorite part is definitely when Kenobi and Ventress work together though.
It was just too awesome! Haha
All around though, the episodes were really well made.
The story and character development were great.
It would seem that the first half of most seasons were not quite too par with
any of the second halves.
Although I enjoyed the Onderon ARC, it held with this pattern.
It was a good ARC as a whole, but some of the lines were a little corny.
I still enjoy the episodes though.

That's all for this week!
Check back next weekend for the next episodes!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 16!! 

This Week's Episodes:
Friends and Enemies
The Box
Crisis on Naboo

This is such a great line up of episodes!
First of, one of the better four-part-arcs 
with Cad Bane, Obi-Wan in disguise, a bounty hunter showdown, 
and so many other awesome things! Haha
And then two of my favorite episodes of the series.
Before these two episodes I really wanted Ventress to die...
But, by the end of Massacre, I was glad she didn't,
And by the end of Bounty, she became one of my favorite characters!
I mean, how much better of story telling can there be 
than to change someone from your least favorite character 
to your one of you favorite characters in just two episodes?! Haha

So excited to be continuing the plan!
Hope you guys are still enjoying it as well!
Check back next weekend for the next episodes

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 15 of the plan!
So, I decided to postpone the plan a few weeks
since I was getting ready to go out of town, out of town,
and then the Fourth of July holiday.
So here we are starting back up again this week!

This Week's Episodes:
Slaves of the Republic
Escape from Kadavo
A Friend in Need

I really love these episodes!
The Kidnapped ARC takes us to a place in Star Wars 
that we haven't really been before: slavery.
We've seen slaves in Star Wars, but we haven't really explored the subject much.
I thought these episodes did a really good job of showing 
how the Republic tried to keep it outlawed, 
how Palpatine clearly built his empire through slaves, 
and how the Zygerrians operate.
Not to mention the awesome for-shadowing of Episode VI!
And of course I love A Friend in Need!
Ahsoka, Luxsoka, a winter planet, and Death Watch.
That's all I have to say!

So, yeah, sorry about my absence!
I just haven't had the time recently.
But it's business as usual now, 
so check back next week for the next episodes!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 14! So, I've been really busy the last two days...
I made the picture late Friday night, but fell asleep before posting
and I had no time whatsoever yesterday...
But, anyway, here it is.

This Week's Episodes:
Mercy Mission
Nomad Droids
Darkness on Umbara
The General
Plan of Dissent
Carnage of Krell

A LOT of people don't like the first two...
It's like the most stereotypical attributes of a Star Wars fan:
if the episode stars R2-D2 and/or C-3PO, then we must hate it?
I personally don't understand it...
The episodes may not be packed with action, 
but they still are well written, animated, and fun to watch.
It's the comic relief... Get a grip... haha
Sorry, but that's my opinion. There is not a Clone Wars episode that I don't like.
Of course, like any good fan, I do have my favorites!
And the Umbaran ARC would definitely have to include some of them!
Having waited since Season Two for another of it's kind,
we all, I think it's safe to say, thoroughly enjoyed the second four-part-ARC of the series.

Check back this Friday for the next episodes in the plan!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Friday, June 6, 2014

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 13!

This Week's Episodes:
Padawan Lost
Wookiee Hunt
Water War
Gungan Attack
Shadow Warrior

I have always really loved the first two in this list!
For one thing, Ahsoka is my favorite character if you guys didn't know that. haha
And, also, we got to see Chewbacca in his younger days!
And they worked together! I mean, how much cooler can you get? hahaha
Anyway, I wasn't too fond of the next four when they came out...
I actually probably gave Shadow Warrior 
a better review than the other three, for whatever reason.
But they've all grown on me since and the little peevish things about it no longer bother me.

In the end, I'm just excited to watch these awesome episodes again!
I especially love the scenery shots at the beginning of Water War!
Such great animation!

Check back next Friday for the next episodes in the plan!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 12! Already half way through! Wow! haha

This Week's Episodes:
Alter of Mortis
Ghost of Mortis
The Citadel
Citadel Rescue

Pretty much the entire second half of Season Three was amazing!
Many of the main characters got a great new updated look and the show had
awesome new story lines and action!
It was a turn for the better especially after many fans had disapproved of the first half.
I personally liked all of Season Three, but I do consider the second half a lot better.

I had another late night last night and I was just so exhausted
 so I'm posting this this morning. haha
Check back every Friday for the next episodes in the plan!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 11! Sorry about the poor quality of this picture... :/
I didn't notice it until after I had put all the text on it.... haha

This Week's Episodes:
Heroes on Both Sides
Pursuit of Peace
Senate Murders
Witches of the Mist

I pretty much love all of these episodes. haha
Some are better than others, but they are all good, in my opinion.
I liked Ahsoka seeing another side of the Separatists:
the civil side. Plus I totally ship Luxsoka!
And I always love seeing what Padme is up too, 
and seeing her take matters into her own hands.
It was very interesting seeing Ventress's past and origins on this show.
I also really enjoyed Savage, although I was, at the time, disappointed to see Maul was coming.
The duel between Ventress, Savage, and Dooku was amazing though!

Check back next Friday for the next episodes!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Friday, May 16, 2014

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 10 of the plan!

This Week's Episodes:
ARC Troopers
Sphere of Influence
Evil Plans
Hostage Crisis
Hunt for Ziro

Honestly, with the exception of Sphere of Influence,
 these are really my favorite episodes...
Don't get me wrong, I love them and love watching them,
they just wouldn't be considered for my top picks.
But I am excited to watch them again, and Bane is of course a plus!
I also loved seeing Baron Papanoida;
especially when he pulled out his blaster at the bar fight!
Totally awesome and unexpected! haha
And of course Echo and Fives were amazing!
I just feel like the episodes themselves were kind of lacking,
but still good! :)

Check back next week for more episodes!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Friday, May 9, 2014

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 9!

This week's episodes:
Death Trap
Artoo Come Home
Lethal Trackdown
The Academy

I pretty much again love all these episodes!
Young Boba is just amazing! haha
And then I always love exploring the politics of Star Wars,
and seeing a few senators fighting is pretty fun as well.
Some people didn't like The Academy, but I enjoyed it.
I always love an episode with Ahsoka in it,
and seeing her face off against Aurra Sing was awesome!

Check back next Friday for the next episodes in the plan!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 8 of the plan! Sorry I wasn't able to get it up last week!
I was visiting my grandma in the hospital on Friday
and I've pretty much been crazy busy ever since...

This week's episodes:
Grievous Intrigue
The Deserter
Lightsaber Lost
The Mandalore Plot
Voyage of Temptation
Duchess of Mandalore

For these episodes, I just want to say I love all of them! haha
The Grievous episodes are amazing because of a few things:
Grievous, Adi Gallia, Rex, and a new aspect of the clones we got to see!
Lightsaber Lost was also a great episode for seeing more about the Jedi we hadn't seen before.
And the Mandalore episodes are obviously amazing because we meet Death Watch!
And we are also introduced to Obi-Wan's weakness
(although some people don't like that part because of Siri).

If you guys are still catching up(like me... haha) don't worry! There's still plenty of time!
And the idea is for it to be on your own time and schedule.
Just remember the last episode you watched and pick up from there! ;)
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars Rebels Trailer Preview!

I'll have the entire trailer up as soon as we get it!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 7 of the plan!

This week's episodes:
Senate Spy
Landing at Point Rain
Weapons Factory
Legacy of Terror
Brain Invaders

Many people don't like Senate Spy very much because there's not as much action
or too much politics... But I actually really enjoyed this one.
I have to agree that it was a little too "mushy" for lack of a better word.
Don't get me wrong, I love romance, but this just kinda felt forced.
I always enjoyed taking a peek into the politics of the Clone Wars though.
The Geonosis ARC is simply an iconic set of episodes!
For a long time it was the only four part arc,
and the animation hit a new high in these episodes!
Seeing four Jedi(and eventually two more) in one place was amazing!
The show did a great job of showing just how difficult the taking of Geonosis was
and how thorough the Jedi were this time in making sure they didn't lose it again.

Check back next Friday to see the next episodes in the plan!
And if you are still catching up, don't worry!
I'm still on week 5 myself... haha
There's plenty of time to get caught up,
but I do want to apologize again for not having them up the last few weeks!
I hope you're enjoying this plan so far!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 6! Episodes:
Holocron Heist
Cargo of Doom
Children of the Force
Bounty Hunters
The Zillo Beast
The Zillo Beast Strikes Back

These are all pretty great episodes!
I'll never forget watching the Season Premier of Season Two
 in my sister's basement with my nephews on a HUGE tv! haha
The zero gravity fight was just the coolest thing ever!
Bounty Hunters was also such a cool episode since we got to see bounty hunters work with Jedi!
The Zillo Beast episodes were also really cool.
Although, I wish they would've continued the story...

Well, that's it for today. Again, I'm so sorry for not posting these the last few weeks!
Hope you are enjoying this plan!
Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 5! Episodes:
Blue Shadow Virus
Mystery of a Thousand Moons
Storm Over Ryloth
Innocents of Ryloth
Liberty on Ryloth

I have to say I LOVE all of these episodes! 
The Blue Shadow Virus ARC is one of my favorites of Season One
(I especially loved seeing Iego and the angels mentioned by Anakin in The Phantom Menace),
and I love the Ryloth ARC for a few reasons:
They are sort of stand-alone episodes that each use different main characters but tie in the story.
I also loved the character development of Ahsoka in the first episode
and the vulnerable side of the clones in the second one.
Overall, all of these episodes are just great, in my opinion.

Next and final one coming up soon(:

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Ahhh, soo incredibly sorry for not posting these the last couple of weeks!
I was really busy two weeks ago and I was out of town last week....
But I'm getting my posts caught up tonight!
They won't be as long at all though because I'm really sick....

Week 4! Episodes:
Dooku Captured
The Gungan General
Jedi Crash
Defenders of Peace

I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the first four, but I think Trespass is a great episode!
I loved almost everything about it: the story, characters, animation!
It was all great!

Well, that's all for this post! I'll be uploading the next two weeks in a few minutes. . .

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 3 already!
This plan has already renewed my interest in The Clone Wars(and Star Wars in general)!
I'm sorry to say I actually got a little disinterested with Star Wars without anything new really going on for such a long time... :/ But now I seriously can't wait for each Friday when I get to share these episodes with you and watch them!


  • This episode aired on October 24, 2008 and sparked what is probably the biggest sub-fandom of the Clone Wars(if that's a thing, haha) as it followed the well known Domino squad in their mission to protect the Rishi Moon outpost.  It is the fifth episode of Season One and the ninth episode in the complete story.  Although some of the squad might consider this post to be more than a little boring, they are in for a big adventure when a Separatist fleet attacks the post.  They will have to fight to let the Republic know of their troubles, or die trying. . .
  • Written by Steven Melching
  • Directed by Justin Ridge
  • During the beginning of the episode a DJ dedicates a song to the clone troopers on Mimban which is a planet explored in the 1978 novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye.
  • Who couldn't love this episode? It comes with all of the greatest things the Clone Wars has to offer: action, heroics, sacrifice, and explosions, haha.  While the show was still in its early stages they still managed to produce a great episode with characters we would love and remember long after.

Downfall of a Droid:

  • This sixth episode of Season One comes in as number ten in the order of the story.  It aired on November 7, 2008.  Following an encounter in space with General Grievous, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano must search for R2-D2 who mysteriously went missing during the fight.  Despite the fact of Anakin's attachment to the droid, Artoo is also carrying sensitive information that could harm the Republic if it fell into the wrong hands.  In "Artooy's" absence, Anakin is forced to get a replacement astromech, R3-S6, but it seems the new droid is a little slow.  Time is running out for the Jedi to find the missing droid before General Grievous does.
  • Written by George Krstic
  • Directed by Rob Coleman
  • R3's black-and-gold color was a tribute to Davi Filoni's hometown of Pittsburgh, whose football team wears the colors.
  • I personally really love this episode.  The beginning battle is incredibly interesting, and Anakin's tactics always prove to be amusing!  It's great to see R2 in some action of his own too.  I also really loved R3-S6, but sadly that kinda fell flat. . . haha

Duel of the Droids:

  • Being the next episode both in Season One and chronological order, this episode aired on November 14, 2008 and continues the story of the search for R2.  It seems he has led the Jedi to a secret Separatist listening post the Republic has been looking for.  Anakin is instructed to destroy the post despite Artoo being on it.  Anakin, however, goes against Obi-Wan's wishes and searches for his partner, leaving the mission of destroying the base to his padawan and clones.  Grievous intends not to allow this and creates many obstacles for the crew, including an unexpected traitor.
  • Written by Kevin Campbell and Henry Gilroy
  • Directed by Rob Coleman
  • The seats in Gha Nachkt's freighter, the Vulture's Claw, are actually very similar to those in the Millennium Falcon.
  • This is actually one of my favorite episodes of Season One and really the entire series.  One reason I love it so much is because of how many times Anakin and Grievous come so close to one another, but never meet until Episode III.  This is only the first of many of those instances and you barely even notice the connection until you think about it again later.  Also, the combat and design in these episodes was great!  It was also pretty interesting as a child to watch R3 being a traitor, although I wasn't very happy about it. . .  I had the same optimistic view as Ahsoka.

Bombad Jedi:

  • The next episode in Season One and the story line aired on November 21, 2008.  Here we see more of the political and comical side of the Clone Wars as Padme Amidala travels with Jar Jar Binks to Rodia to negotiate a relief effort with one of her oldest friends Senator Onaconda Farr.  He, however, has betrayed her and sided with Nute Gunray.  Padme is taken prisoner and Jar Jar and 3PO are forced to fend for themselves and hope to save the senator.
  • Written by Kevin Rubio, Henry Gilroy, and Steven Melching
  • Directed by Jesse Yeh
  • The sea monster seen in this episode is modeled after an unused concept design by Ralph McQuarrie for a swamp monster inhabiting Dagobah.
  • Many people don't like this episode because they don't like Jar Jar.  I like all Clone Wars episodes though, and I enjoyed the comedy in this one.

Cloak of Darkness:

  • After Padme and Jar Jar capture Nute Gunray on Rodia, he is sent with Master Luminara Unduli and Ahsoka Tano to be transported to Coruscant to be tried for his crimes in the next episode which aired on December 5, 2008.  It would soon appear that Nute Gunray is even more important than previously thought as Asajj Ventress is sent to rescue him.  Luminara, however, underestimates the assassin and is nearly overwhelmed by her, but Ahsoka comes just in time.  The diversion was just what the sith apprentice needed for her inside man to retrieve the Viceroy and escape.
  • Written by Paul Dini
  • Directed by Dave Filoni
  • Gree took his name as an allusion to his interest in alien species such as the Gree, an ancient species living in the Outer Rim.
  • One thing I really liked about this episode was seeing masters and padawans working with other Jedi than their usual counterparts.  The traitor bit was getting a little old though; but it did give us more insight into the minds of those working for the Grand Republic.

Lair of Grievous:

  • When Ventress manages to escape with Gunray, the two are "foolish" enough to use a Republic ship, which can be tracked.  In the next episode, airing on December 12, 2008, Jedi Master Kit Fisto and his former padawan Nahdar Vebb are tasked with tracking down the war criminal before he slips out of their reach.  They soon find out that they are actually being led into a trap; but who is the trap actually for?
  • Written by Henry Gilroy
  • Directed by Atsushi
  • There are many aquatic species in the Jedi Order like Fisto and his old padawan Nahdar who are from the water worlds Glee Anselm and Mon Cala.
  • I really enjoyed the conclusion to this ARC!  And I loved the fact that they were three episodes that had a connection, but weren't really the same story.  Kind of reminiscent of the OT.

I hope you enjoyed this week! I'm so excited to watch these episodes and next week's too! Come back next Friday for the next set of episodes to watch! Until then, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 2 of the Plan!

This week's episodes:

Clone Cadets:

  • On September 17, 2010, the first episode of Season Three, or third in chronology, Clone Cadets aired as the Season Premier of Season Three.  The episode follows the Domino squad through their rocky training road on Kamino to becoming a part of the Republic army.  Heavy, Fives, Echo, Droidbait, and Cutup must overcome their differences and work together in order to pass their final test.
  • The episode was written by Cameron Litvack and directed by Dave Filoni.
  • In one of the tests of the clone cadets, Commander Colt orders a challenge "version THX, variable 11-38" which is a reference to George Lucas's first feature film, THX 1138."
  • I really love this episode! As I've said before, I love exploring all the aspects of war(politics, the front line, training, it's effects, etc.)  We also get to see the back-story of the Domino Squad from "Rookies," and who doesn't love them?

Supply Lines:

  • This third episode of Season Three originally aired on September 24, 2010.  Being the fourth episode in chronological order, this story shows us the effort used to convince Toydaria to allow a relief effort to use their planet to reach the struggling Twi'leks on Ryloth.  Master Ima-Gun Di desperately tries to save what Twi'lek people he can as Jar Jar Binks and Bail Organa negotiate with King Katuunko of Toydaria.
  • This episode was written by Steven Melching and Eoghan Mahony and directed by Brian Kalin O'Connell.
  • It is almost clear of Master Ima-Gun Di's fate from the beginning of the episode.  The name was no accident; however, the Clone Wars team could have been a little more sublte.
  • I think this episode is one of the more well-rounded episodes of the series.  We see the politics of war, the quirkiness of Jar Jar, and the battles on Ryloth.  The story is also pretty good and gives us more insight into, both the struggle on Ryloth, and the state of Toydaria's neutrality.  I hated seeing Master Di, well, die; and I really wish we could have seen more of him throughout the series, but he did have an honorable death.


  • The very first episode of the Clone Wars, airing on October 3, 2008 actually comes fifth in chronological order.  In this episode we continue the story of Toydaria's neutrality as Master Yoda tries to reach King Katuunko in order to hold negotiations on the planet's alliance with the Republic.  He is, however, blocked from his goal by a legion of droids lead by Asajj Ventress.
  • The episode was written by Steven Melching and directed by Dave Bullock.
  • Voice actor Tom Kane not only voices Yoda, but also Admiral Yularen and the opening for each episode.
  • In my opinion, this episode is definitely a classic!  It will long be remembered as the first episode of the Clone Wars, and there isn't much else you can say about it.

Rising Malevolence:

  • Episode two of Season One(or number six in story order) also aired on October 3, 2008.  This episode tells the story of a mystery weapon the Jedi have been trying to track down and destroy.  Master Plo Koon has just engaged the weapon, but soon loses all contact with the outside world.  Though there have been no survivors to this elusive tool of the enemy, Anakin and Ahsoka believe Master Plo has survived and mount their own rescue mission.
  • Written by Steven Melching and directed by Dave Filoni.
  • The firing chamber of the Malevolence's ion canon very much resembles that of the Death Star from Episodes IV and VI.
  • I will always remember watching this episode, and the one before, enamored by the animation and action of the episodes.  I was young at the time, but both episodes will always remain favorites of mine!

Shadow of Malevolence:

  • Coming in at number seven in the story order, the next episode of Season One aired on October 10, 2008.  After finally discovering the abilities and location of the Malevolence, Anakin, Ahsoka, and Plo Koon mount a small bomber strike force to take down the menace.  While Obi-Wan brings the fleet as quickly as possible, Anakin leads his pilots through a dangerous shortcut in hopes of cutting Grievous off before he can do anymore damage.
  • Written by Steven Melching and directed by Brian Kalin O'Connell.
  • Y-wing fighters, used in this episode, where still utilized in the Original Trilogy time period.  They are then considered old ships that can take a lot of damage.
  • The four-legged power droid of the PLNK-series is named for the "plunk" sound it makes.
  • I again loved seeing these first Clone Wars episodes, and thoroughly enjoyed the first space battle!

Destroy Malevolence:

  • The next episode of Season One and the story line follows the final attempt of the Republic fleet to destroy the Malevolence.  After his prized ship sustains extensive damage, Grievous makes one last attempt at escape by abducting Senator Padme Amidala in an effort to stop the fighting long enough for his hyperdrive to be repaired.  Anakin and Obi-Wan must rescue Padme and destroy the starship before time runs out.
  • Written by Tim Burns and directed by Brian Kalin O'Connell.
  • I thought this was a great conclusion to a great story ARC!  Though, throughout the first season, good would seem to win a little too much, we find our balance a little later in the show and these episodes can be regarded as the classics of the series.
Sorry I wasn't able to post yesterday... I was really busy... haha  I again hope you enjoyed this post! Check back next Friday to see what episodes come next! Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars 24 Week Plan

Week 1 of the 24 Week Plan!
I have mixed emotions about this year. . .
I'm excited because I've been wanting to do them in chronological order for a while,
but I didn't know the exact order. . . haha Now that I do, I'm really happy for this year's plan!
The sad part is that there is no more Clone Wars, and this is, in fact, a final goodbye.

Well, on to this week's(or rather last week's...) episodes:

Cat and Mouse:

  • Originally airing on March 26, 2010 as the 16th episode of Season two, this episode actually comes first in chronological order.  The episode shows us a rather fresh Republic fleet fighting the experienced strategist, Admiral Trench, who has blockaded the planet Christophsis.  It is clear here that both sides are fresh into the war.  It is later discovered that, between the time of the battle of Geonosis and now, the Separatists have been aligning many systems to their cause, either willingly or by force.  With, what would seem like, a newly organized Republic military, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan have been sent to this particular planet to put a stop to the Separatist movement.  It is obvious that the war is fresh, with Admiral Yularen showing his lack of knowledge about Skywalker, in addition to new clones and equipment shown in the episode.  Anakin is ordered by Obi-Wan to take an experimental stealth ship down to the planet to aid Senator Bail Organa and the Republic base.  However, after Yularen reveals their enemy's great qualifications, Skywalker chooses a different action and attacks Trench with the ship.  A strategic game of cat-and-mouse ensues as each opponent tries to outsmart the other.
  • This episode was written by Brian Larsen and directed by Kyle Dunlevy.
  • In Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Captain Needa is certain that no ship as small as the Millennium Falcon could have a cloaking device. He clearly is wrong, but it is not shown throughout the rest of this series whether or not the stealth ship used in this episode was successfully used in the war effort.
  • Admiral Trench's name was originally Admiral Taranch and can be seen spelled this way on Yularen's intelligence report.  The name, however, was changed because it was thought to close to tarantula, the obvious origin of his species and name.
  • I personally love this episode! It was great to see two experienced military leader battle it out in space with experimental technology and quick thinking.

The Hidden Enemy:

  • This episode aired on February 6, 2009 as number 16 of Season 1. It comes in as the second episode in chronology.  After defeating Trench, Anakin and Obi-Wan proceed to set up a trap for the droids on the planet below, but are betrayed by one of their own.  As the Jedi take a look behind enemy lines, Commander Cody and Captain Rex launch an investigation into who may have given up their battle plans to the enemy.  Anakin and Obi-Wan again find a trap waiting for them at the Separatist headquarters.  They battle Ventress and discover another attack being launched on the city while Rex and Cody do some battling of their own.  They manage to catch the traitor, but not before he did some damage to the weapons depot.
  • Apparently, though still early in the war, the fight is already having an effect on the clones as Sergeant Slick reveals his reasoning for betraying the Republic as being a favor to his brothers.  He did it "for his freedom" from the Jedi.
  • The episode was written by Drew Z. Greenberg and directed by Steward Lee.
  • Captain Rex was originally an ARC trooper named Alpha in the Dark Horse Comics' Star Wars: Republic.
  • This episode gave us a lot of insight into the minds of the individual clones in the early days of the war as well giving us the context of the theatrical release. It's not, however, one of my personal favorites.

The Clone Wars(Theatrical Release):

  • The full length feature hit theaters on August 15, 2008, thus beginning the Clone Wars fandom.  Yoda sends aid to Anakin and Obi-Wan on Christophsis in the form of a new padawan for Skywalker.  The arrogant master and snippy apprentice make an odd pair, but they must work together to shut down the droids' new shield and win Christophsis for the Republic.  With some difficulty, they manage to destroy the generator and clear the way for reinforcements, but the next Separatist plan has already been put into place.  Jabba the Hutt has contacted the Jedi Council in hopes that they can help find his son.  Not yet sure who is behind the kidnapping, Anakin and Ahsoka are sent to investigate on the planet Teth.  They find the huttlet, but the real battle has just begun.  Dooku twists the truth to Jabba and convinces him the Jedi are responsible.  Anakin and Ahsoka have to return Rotta to his father, without incident, before time runs out.
  • Writers Henry Gilroy, Steven Melching, and Scott Murphy and director Dave Filoni originally planned this story to be the first three episodes of the series, but instead decided to extend it and launch the series with a movie.
  • Samuel Jackson, Christopher Lee, Anthony Daniels, and Matthew Wood again filled their roles from the prequel trilogy in this feature with Daniels and Wood also continuing into the show.
  • The Twilight's design was taken from an unused Republic gunship concept for Episode II.
  • Who wouldn't love the movie? haha It made for a great start to the series! The story line and conflict could have been a little more substantial to the overall story of the Clone Wars, but it was pretty good, other than that.  The character development of Anakin and Ahsoka was very well done. The music(at the time) was all fresh and well put together, and the animation was great for the time period!
I hope you enjoy this week's edition! Check back every Friday for the next episodes!(Not sure if I'll be adding all this information every time; still deciding...) I hope some of you are doing this with me and will enjoy it! Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars the Clone Wars All Season Summer Plan!

Hey guys! So, a lot of you may remember me doing this before, or you may not, but, basically, I watch 4-6 episodes of the Clone Wars series(and the movie) every Friday night for 24 weeks and by the end I have watched all of them. With the release of the episode guide book though, I've decided to do them in chronological order this year! So, I'm just wondering if any of you would like to join me? I don't think anyone has before, if they have they never told me... Haha But, I usually start a week or two after the last episode of the season premiers. Season 6 was uploaded a little over a week ago, so I started last weekend, but if you guys want to do it with me, you can either catch up, or start this weekend. It really doesn't matter, I just wanted to know if some people wanted to do this with me as kind of a last goodbye to the Clone Wars series before Rebels comes(:I'll be posting the first week later today, then I'll post the second week on Friday(:Until next time, MTFBWY!

Star Wars Rebels Overview

So, we've gotten a lot of news recently about Star Wars Rebels coming this fall to Disney XD. So far we know that it's going to be taking place mainly on one planet and cover the rebellion rising on that planet against the Empire. We now also even know the names of a few of the new characters and somewhat of a description of them. . .
The first character we were introduced to was the Sith Inquisitor. So far, what we know is that he is basically the Ventress to the Dooku. It sounds like he is a small part of the Empire itself, but a large part of the setting of the show. . .
The next character we met is Kanan, who seems to be a 
kind of "cowboy" Jedi. He will be one of the new
good guy main characters. From this picture, it looks like he will
definitely be acquainted with the Sith Inquisitor.

Our next character is Chopper: a rather stubborn little droid made of scrap parts the rebels were able to scrounge up. Though he may not always do things when and how his superiors would like it done, but it sounds like he will be a lovable hero nonetheless.

And now we come to the most recent addition to our cast, Ezra. He's rather well cut out for the rebels: young, ambitious, and ready to fight. He takes any and everything he can get from the Empire, hoping to make some kind of difference.

You can always
From what I've heard so far,
I have a feeling Ezra will be my favorite character
from the new series. But I would love to
hear all your opinions!
From the information we have so far,
who do you think will be your favorite character come this fall?

Until next time, MTFBWY!
