Shadow of Malevolence: Targeting a medical frigate is such an ***holish move that I actually got angry at the Separatists, as opposed to pulling for the Republic because we're supposed to be on their side. There have been a few more moments like this in the series and a few more in the related books but they don't come often. I like seeing Anakin in charge of a mission, Anakin inspiring confidence in the clones, Anakin using knowledge he had prior to coming to the Temple--the reference to eavesdropping on the pilots when he was still on Tatooine and learning of the old smuggler's route, although apparently the spacers left out the full story. I liked seeing Anakin's more reckless side contrasted with Obi-Wan's cautious side. Nice Battle of Yavin references all around. I liked that the Naboo sent the fighters to assist as well. Plo seemed a bit shoehorned in but his role did end up working nicely with him tag-teaming off Anakin at the end. The biggest downside in this episode: For the love of all that is holy, Ahsoka, Shut. The. ****. Up. I don't remember being this annoyed with her in that episode when it first premiered several years ago but upon re-watch tonight, I wanted to take a shot of something very intoxicating every time she opened her mouth. Between several "Artooey"s, questioning everything Anakin or Plo said, the peanut gallery in the back of the Anakin's fighter, and the demand for recognition at the end (to which Anakin and Plo's rebuff was hilarious)...I'd make "take a shot every time Ahsoka does something annoying" into a drinking game but my liver just curled into a fetal position at the thought. Ah, those creatures that Anakin apparently didn't know about... "He looks hungry." "No, he's just smiling at you." LOL, you're annoyed too, aren't you Anakin? To "Does anyone care what the Padawan thinks?" I actually said "No!" out loud, and the cat on my lap looked at me like I had lost my mind. 8/10, only docking two points for Padawan Motormouth, the rest of the episode I thoroughly enjoyed.
