  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Episode 5.12!! Missing In Action

    The TCW General Discussion Thread (spoilers) will be open to any "official" information discussion, other than the leaked plot info for S5, and any preview/episode clips for the individual episodes (i.e., things like IGN where they give us a 2:00 minute part of the show, often spoiling key scenes).http://boards.theforce.net/threads/...-discussion-thread-spoilers-allowed.20757653/

    The S5 discussion thread (Spoilers!) will continue to be the main heavy spoiler thread, including discussion of the video clips for each week's episode. Plot spoilers will continue to be limited to this thread and must still be "spoiler tagged" or black highlighted. http://boards.theforce.net/threads/season-5-major-spoilers-video-clips.50003192/

    I hope they don't have D-Squad hide in the Republic shuttle by just pretending to be Separatist droids.

    Hopefully Gregor beats the crap out of WAC or at least tells him to shut up .

    ROFL... poor little droid. Maybe if someone would just tell him he is annoying and try to teach him a little better.

    I'd totally teach him to say 'Aye-yi-yi-yi!'

    What I love about the history of Gregor revealed also in the clip is the planet Sarrish.

    I love how this season especially likes to reference EU planets - Carida, Agamar and now Sarrish. Kudos for such references...

    "Battle of Sarrish" in particular, which i was i used as a placeholder name for the article on Wookieepedia like six years ago.

    more than likely the writer just needed to reference a random battle and stumbled upon my wookieepedia page :p

    Must've been a different Battle there since the one in Routine Valor is during the Outer Rim Sieges, which hasn't started yet in this series.

    Do you guys think I'll need to watch the previous two episodes to enjoy this? After watching the previews for those episodes I decided to not watch due to complete lack of interest.

    Based on the trailer, probably not. If you know what happens in the first one, you can probably skip it. The second you wouldn't really need either way IMO.

    I don't know if this is gonna be an awesome episode, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it immensely. I really like the idea of an amnesiac clone commando (Gregor) and from what's known about him so far, he'll no doubt be an interesting and pretty cool character.

    Yes, I'd be very surprised if we're already into the Outer Rim Sieges in the timeline - but chronology has not been linear in TCW.

    This episode had better make up for the previous two episodes which I personally thought were dire...

    I'm concerned that I might be the only one here that gets that joke...:p
    I agree with KenobiSkywalker on this one -- you can probably skip the other episodes. The plot is fairly straight-forward at this point.

    The good news is we're not Barriss_Coffee. =b

    Plot summery for arc so far: Droids and frog sneak aboard Separatist ship, steal flash drive. They crash land on a strange planet. Frog goes insane thinking he is going to die. Is saved by space emus. Now here we are.
