  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.

    I'm really enjoying the Clone Wars cartoons, but since it's a continuing story, why didn't they just do an hour-long special?

    I always thought the 3-minute thing was a weird idea, and I'm sure the story will be more satisfying in one sitting, rather than in little bits.

    Because it would all be over at once.
    And that would suck.

    Indeed. Also, this is a test to see how a Star Wars show would survive on TV, not a test on how a Star Wars one-off would survive on TV.

    Agreed.

    I like being able to download the cartoons from hyperspace in (barely) manageable chunks via dialup.

    And I like this forum getting 2 weeks of sustained activity.

    And I like the cliffhanger endings.

    And I like chocolate.

    As far as I am concerned, the cartoons totally work. They could make EP 4, 5 and 6 in Cartoon and I would be very happy.

    I hope more is to come.

    I was one of the few people who didn't complain when it was announced that they would be 3 minutes. I never griped a bit until after I saw the first chapter and couldn't help but think "that's it?". (I still loved it, nonetheless.) But after seeing the last two episodes, I don't mind it a bit. It was the intro that made the first seem so short, I suppose.

    EDIT: Oh, I almost forgot:

    I like chocolate, too. :D

    I like Swiss Chocolate. :D


    I think that it's better to drip feed them, and it's better that they're doing it over the course of a couple weeks.

    Didn't George already make eps. 4-6 (in live action, no less), about 20 years ago? :D

    I like it in little bits :D
    They said if this show gets high ratings it'll be made longer. :D
    No matter what it's addictive and makes you want to see the rest :D

    I don't see the need to experiment. LFL should know that they could easily get away with 30 min episodes.

    I can easily imagine each episode so far stretched to 24 min with 6 min of Star Wars merchandising commercials. Awesome!

    I agree with all the above reasons mentioned but it's also about ratings.

    I like the way they are coming out.

    Given these are just 3 minutes long, I really like the fact they are on every night. It's a unique and fun format. I also think it will be very satisfying to see all of them strung together in one 30-plus minute "show."

    It's fun and different. And since tv pretty much stinks, it gives me something to look forward to every night for a couple of weeks. I have yet to find anything wrong with this series. It's not supposed to be too serious...just very cool.
