    Well, we have not had a new thread for a while,
    and this topic seems like___What's Next:D

    Cartoon Network


    or, as one of their pomo-s has it,

    artoo Network
    (an animated R2D2 comes on the screen and re-constructs the CarToon Network logo)

    Had a sneak (almost fooled my TIVO as it was not there just days before) preview,

    Since it is TV, the promo shots look pretty good,
    or
    big screen animation seems to work better on TV for some reason for me.


    AMBUSH____looks to be the premier Episode, and at this time has no repeat viewings,
    according to my TVIO search. It looks like Episode 2, airs right after that,
    and has several repeat opportunities over the next week or so.


    The Sneak Preview, featured,

    Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano)
    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/one%20time%20use/blocks_image_0_1.jpg]

    and

    Matthew Wood (General Grievous)

    It is easy to see that Ashley, will become a fan-boy favorite at conventions,
    (if this is not already so)

    The preview is a mixture of live action (including R2D2 and Clones)
    animation from the film,
    and snippets from the upcomming show.

    Music used that I recognized,

    was the Asteriod Field theme,
    from Empire.

    I did see some of this episode. While I thought the film was ok, I continue to think the series will be awesome, once they get away from Anakin and Obi-Wan and focus more on the other characters.

    I enjoyed the movie, well done, exceeded my expectations. Of course, maybe my expectations were too low, forgot the series is already going. Thanks for the heads up.

    Both episodes actually repeat on Sunday and on Tuesday, I believe. I know my DVR is set to record both on Sunday starting at 9pm, at any rate.

    I give high marks to both episodes, although the first one featured a little too much corny battle droid humor for me. Both were improvements on the movie, IMHO.

    Just watched both episodes, and I must say I was entertained. I'm not sure why I liked these better than the movie, but I did.

    No Ziro the Hutt, that's why the tv episodes are better!

    OK, so this series is totally working for me.

    Back to my childhood, when cartoons were cartoons,
    and
    there was actual humor!

    Who ever is writing the "roger roger" dialogue/jokes
    is doing a very fun nerdy job of it.

    Strongly agree. Last night's episode was the best yet, and the previous two were no slouches.

    Usually several days a week, at various times. The new episodes always premiere on Fridays at 8pm Central (but not tonight). The Official Site has a moving window of the most recent ones that are available as full episodes for free.

    Interesting...perhaps I overlooked this. What parts? It is an excellent episode, I just watched it again yesterday.

    FYI, the Official Site posts "episode guides" that include a full synopsis and trivia for each episode after they air.

    well, the rookies at the end of the episode

    are given the opportunity to joine the - - - - -

    actually this is on other boards I visit,
    but I am unsure if it is anywhere on these boards yet,
    so maybe I am being overly cautious.

    South Bend thread already[face_laugh]

    oh, just another post in the post count....
