Reversal of Fortune has such great continuity with Labyrinth of Evil and RotS, too.
Am I the only one who finds the TFN reviews (by Eric) for each show so downright horrible?
I actually never read Reversal of Fortune. Good thing now, I suppose?
I definitely feel there will be a twist to Barriss's role in this arc... but I also am willing to bet a hefty sum that the twist will come with her death.
Pablo Jill properly only got killed because he kept looking strangely at Griv.
Episode guide is up.
Confirmation that level numbers increase with altitude: "Coruscant's surface is subdivided into striated levels. The highest surface is 5,127, while the uninhabitable lowest depth is Level 1. The action in this episode covers from Level 1312 to Level 1315."
Coruscant transit map! For the in-joke district, apparently.
"This episode marks the first appearance of a Republic police gunship, a vehicle design inherited by The Clone Wars team from another project." Another project, eh? Wouldn't happen to be 1313, would it?
The concept art gallery confirms that some of the street views that look like 1313 concept art are, in fact, from level 1313.
Edit: Filoni's commentary makes it sound like a cut and dry deal that Barriss is behind this. He basically says "Sorry guys! [sad trombone]".
Yeah... I'm not buying this. Star Wars isn't much for the 'twist' - any plot elements are telegraphed about 500 miles ahead. Remember how after TPM that LFL made all entries for "Palpatine" and "Darth Sidious" separate, leading fans to speculate that they were going have this incredible twist that they weren't the same?
Also, in the CWAS Jedi don't do evil things unless it's made blatantly obvious that they will do them (i.e. Krell).
Edit: Oh dear, Wookieepedia is going to take that transit map as 100% canon, aren't they?
I particularly like that LAAC is one of the destinations.
Yeah, they are so fawning and act like TCW is the deepest show ever. I've haven't read many, but it seems like he never has anything negative to say.
Filoni you son of a b****.
Now, now. You know when the next commentary comes out he's going to say it was all Lucas's idea.
What about after he's barraged with questions regarding logic, such as how padawan! Offee is able to force choke a person from several miles away, or how she managed to infiltrate a prison in the first place?
His response: "No it wasn't me, it was the one armed man!"
Edit: Nevermind about the map
Also, I would say making Barris the secret villain would be the biggest dump this show has taken on continuity, but... Darth Maul. Also, the Trade Federation. So, in short, changing the age, characterization, and likely death of a major pre-established character would only be the show's third biggest crime.
That's actually much nicer than the names I had for him in my head.
I didn't even hear a "sorry guys" in his attitude in the commentary. More like "I'm TCW god, I do whatever the hell I want, and if you choose not to accept it, oh well, tough **** for you."
I highly doubt that. I thought the first Coruscant Nights book was written well before its release. They basically ripped off the plot point, it's not an amazing coincidence.
This is why animators should not become directors. See also: Aliens versus Predator Requiem for similar results. That's the level I'm putting TCW at from now on.
Yeah. Just caught the episode, and I think they're telegraphing the identity of the assailant from miles away. I'm hoping that they're using misdirection but TCW's really not that subtle, and that Filoni commentary basically confirms it.
I really don't understand this. What's the purpose?
Hack writers and a man who has no place in the director's chair.
In the next week's episode, GrandAdmiralJello is retconned to be a separatist sympathizer.
For those talking about lack of subtlety, should realise that a show that has the Imperial March playing every time Anakin (he's gonna be Darth Vader you know) gets moody is not that subtle to begin with.
Yeah, but that happens whenever I get moody too.
And every time they do that I feel the urge to slap Filoni.
Well I put the Ark theme on background every single time I open parcels so I'm not one to complain.
Filoni and co giving us the finger as usual
He wasn't even being subtle about giving us the finger this time.
But as you all have said, subtlety is not his strong suit.
