    This is pretty much my feelings. I just sit back and enjoy the adventure, and alternate between a sad face and an angry frown when Even Piell dies. :p

    Padawan Lost:

    Felucia again? Really? What the hell is up out there? Other than some cool glowing plant life they can hide in.

    LOL Anakin telling Ahsoka not to get cocky.

    *** DAMN ****ING SPIDERS AGAIN! Make it stop!

    This is the first time I've really noticed Ahsoka's backwards saber hold. It looks wrist sprain inducing.

    The Trandoshans are damn menacing, some of the only TCW villains who actually scared me. Makes me wonder how Han ever got Chewie away from them.

    And they mount their kills on their walls? Damn Southern rednecks...oh, wait...

    Geez, poor Rex. And poor Anakin. :(

    And poor hopeless Kalifa. Who is right, the Trandoshans are disgusting.

    "Other Padawans once thought as you do." Baaaddd OT line use.

    "My Master would never forgive me for running and hiding." Probably true.

    "Here Lizard Lizard." LMAO WTF?

    And let the Force-choke game begin. "Don't kill him out of hatred." Oh Ahsoka, you hypocrite.

    Ahsoka brings hope where there was none. I think I need a fluoride rinse now.

    And lookee here, she sees Wookiees.

    Jungle scenes are visually stunning.

    OK Lizard Boy, shut up and shoot. After Mad Skillz Snips jumps over you of course.

    OK that was annoying, but the next scene...damn, Kalifa. :_|

    I've always loved the scene with Anakin and the galaxy hologram, looking like he has either been crying or is about to. The talk with Plo is good; someone has to be the calm one here.

    Do it.

    Wookiee Hunt:

    "This one was faster than most." Hello, Mad Skillz Snips.

    Ranting Vengeful Trandoshan from the end of Padawan Lost reappears. Annoying.

    "Let's go down with a fight." I agree with Ahsoka for once.

    But LMAO did she just jump on the ship?

    Oh hell, nasty lizard Padawan dodgeball.

    Ahsoka shoved the Trandoshan out of the ship with the Force. Ok, I appreciated this Mad Skillz Snips display.

    "It's a Wookiee!" What's up, Chewie? I thought you were an OT character.

    I'm actually OK with Ahsoka speaking Shyriwook. Maybe she likes languages, as I always did. I had a bigger problem with Filoni's later statement that Han couldn't speak it.

    "Time to join the Force, Jedi." LOL wut?

    Chewie should have ripped the Trandoshan's arms off.

    Jenks and the other British-accent-youngling come up with a convoluted plan and then give Ahsoka more sappy words.'

    Ah, this is new: if at first a Jedi mind trick doesn't work, have Chewie knock the **** out of the victim.

    Chewie and the Jedi vs hysterical lizards. My son: "why the heck does he want their skins?"

    And damn, the rescue crew appears. It's not wise to upset a Wookiee. The whole fight is amusing, except when Chewie is on his back.

    Mad Skillz Snips display was OK until she pulled the Vader line. " You are beaten." *headdesk*

    Reunion. Wow, sweet Ahsoka and Anakin moment there. My only complaint? Anakin, just hug her already, who cares who is watching, you know you want to.

    Well, it's always nice to lower your expectations of a creator's abilities by reading stupidity.

    At least TCW didn't have a young Han in it.

    It was Filoni's stupidest attempt ever to elevate Ahsoka into a Super-Padawan.

    If TCW had had young Han in it, Ahsoka probably would have taught him how to build and fix the Falcon.

    We've groaned at a few of them already I think. But I'm sure Filoni would have Ahsoka out-smartass Han.

    And I'd have to do tequila shots as I watched.

    Filoni, look at ANH first.

    Chewie growls something
    Han: Boy you said it, Chewie.
    Han: Boy you said it, Chewie.
    Han: Boy you said it, Chewie.
    Han: Boy you said it, Chewie.

    And MadSkillzSnips is my sock.

    And...

    Han: Keep your distance though, Chewie, but don't look like you're trying to keep your distance.

    Chewie barks a question.

    Han: I don't know. Fly casual.

    The most glaring example is this exchange:

    Han: Chewie? Chewie, is that you?
    Chewie grabs Han and shakes him
    Han: Ch-Chewie! I can't see, pal. What's going on?
    Chewie barks
    Han: Luke? Luke's crazy! He can't even take care of himself, much less rescue anybody.
    Chewie barks again
    Han: A Jedi Knight? Jeez, I'm out of it for a little while, everyone gets delusions of grandeur!

    Yeah, tell me Han got Luke's name and occupation through emotion. o_O

    That's got to be the dumbest thing Dave Filoni has ever said. I don't know how someone could watch Star Wars without realizing that Han understands Chewie.

    Padawan Lost

    This episode started of really strongly with the battle of Felucia, I really like that planet, because the scenery looks so awesome. We've seen Felucia a few times now, so seeing it at night was really cool, especially with the glowing plants, and I reckon battles always look cool at night with the laser bolts and explosions brightening up the scene, like in 'The Jedi Who Knew Too Much' and 'Massacre', which both looked amazing. It was also a nice addition to see a couple of Felucians from the episode 'Bounty Hunters' again, and see them actually help the Jedi.

    It was great to see Plo Koon in a battle, because considering how many episodes he's actually been in, which is a lot, this was the first battle we've seen him in, followed by Kadavo, but that's it. I liked the part where Plo Koon tells his troopers to follow him and him force jumps like one million miles into the air and there's that brief moment where the troopers just look at him, but then use their jet packs. Maybe it would've been cool to make this duology an arc, and have a whole episode just with the battle of Felucia, and instead of just a small outpost, have a proper base with Grievous in command or something, and we could even get a Plo Koon vs. Grievous duel, which would've been awesome.

    I was really happy when I saw that there were Trandoshans in these episodes the first time I watched them, because of how much I liked Bossk, and I always thought we'd never see anymore of his species, then bam! There's hundreds of them (Well about 10 or more anyway), but that was cool to see. Garnac was my favourite Trandoshan, he's still no where near as cool as Bossk, but he was still strong and intimidating. His son had a bit of an odd voice, and so did one of the other Trandoshans, but I guess you've got to make them as different as possible so you don't get any of them mistaken for one of the others.

    The scenery on Trandosha looked great with the forest and the other planet or moon you can see in the background. Having the Jedi Younglings were a great addition to compare how much stronger with the force Ahsoka was than an average Youngling, which is shown throughout the whole series, especially the season finale arc of season five. I thought Ahsoka was great in this episode, and she must be pretty strong to be able to take on a Trandoshan in a one on one fight and manage to push him off of her when he had her pinned to the ground. I thought that brief look she gave during the fight was pretty funny when the Trandoshan had his claws across her whole face. That fight was definitely one of the highlights of the episodes along with the battle of Felucia.

    Overall I thought it was a great episode, and I give it an 8/10.

    Water War:

    Ugh, fortune cookie about destiny.

    I always liked that they animated this whole arc in a fish tank. Nice visuals there.

    Padme's negotiations fail, the Quarren scream hostilities, prepare for assault. It's been done.

    Tamsin is as annoying as I remembered, and I feel just as sorry for Lee-Char as I remembered. Little dude is in way over his head.

    Pew-pew-pew and all the bolts manage to miss Ackbar.

    "****! We're in trouble!" And Snips to the rescue just in time.

    "They're cheering for them!" "Then make it for you." Awesome line.

    And the monumentally stupid moment when the Chosen One can't retrieve his own damn helmet.

    Asinine ****ing Jaws moment. But...shirtless Kit Fisto.

    The giant jellyfish were set up as a good threat. Well done. And Lee-Char quits jabbering about "being brave" and gets the **** out.

    7/10
