Dooku Captured could have been an awesome episode. Count Dooku, scourge of the Republic flees Jedi and ends up captured by pirates. Instead it's a ridiculous parody that makes a mighty Sith Lord look like a fool. I don't protest Dooku's capture per se; Sith or not, he's still a man, and as we see with Order 66, sheer numbers can overwhelm the Jedi. With thirty pirates aiming their guns at him, Dooku would have no choice but surrender, as choosing to fight would probably mean his death. But for the Count to even end up in that position is utterly ridiculous. Dooku is a Sith Lord! He shouldn't even have to negotiate with the pirates. Dooku should have just walked up to Hondo, used a mind trick and arranged passage off Vanquor. Instead we end up with Dooku being betrayed and his lightsabers somehow being stolen from him. Yes, a Sith Lord doesn't notice a monkey-lizard stealing his lightsabers.What utter nonsense. Does anyone have an explanation as to how Count Dooku could have been captured by Hondo and his pirates and why he never used a mind trick to simply escape? Dooku: "This old man is not worth your time, and you really don't need those lightsabers." Hondo: "Never bite off more than you can chew, that's what my mother said. Take your laser swords and get out of here, old man." That's how it should have happened. Instead we get this ridiculous farce where a bunch of pirates actually manage to capture a Sith Lord and hold him for ransom. As if Sidious would ever allow that to occur. Palpatine should have contacted Grievous right away and sent a droid army straight to Florrum.
