Well folks, I'm about 2/3'rds of the way through summarizing the old "Droids" cartoon series. I'm well on track to have the whole thing ready for this month's update. Man. The first story arc, "The Trigon-1," was pretty good. But I'm really struggling through the second one, "The Pirates and the Prince." Talk about some lousy writing! Cookie-cutter villains who hit on the only female character. Scenes going by so fast you can hardly keep up with the story. Threepio and Artoo relying WAY too much on clumsy slapstick to win the day. And you thought they were bad in AOTC? Sheesh... A couple of real surprises in this arc, though. In the first part, the droids are working at a diner run by a four-armed man(!!!). Could this have inspired Dexter Jettster? And even more shocking, a "Star Destroyer" used by one of the villains of part three -- except for the front (which has a hangar where the nose would be) -- looks almost EXACTLY like the Acclamator-class Republic troop transport!! Show of hands: How many people have actually SEEN "Droids"? In doing research with the reference materials, this really does seem like the forgotten corner of the EU.
