    I think it's a toss up between Carnage of Krell or Bounty for me....annnnd Bounty it is, because CoK stole Palpatine's treason line from RotS.

    Revenge for me. Loved the banter between Ventress and Obi-Wan and it was a great way to bring Maul back and start off his story into the series and setting up the Obi-Wan - Maul dynamic that has been occurring throughout Season 5. I feel its one of the best lightsaber fights of the series too. So that gets my vote and I also have a feeling its probably my most watched episode.

    Carnage of Krell- and it's not even close for me. It was a great way to end an even greater arc as a whole. It's not only the best of the season, but the entire show!!^:)^ .

    Bounty- should go as the second best episode of the season. It was great; action packed and it made Ventress that much more relevant and most importantly -interesting-..This episode would of got my vote in almost any other season. But unfortunately it was going up against my favorite arc/episodes.

    Carnage of Krell. Great episode. My 2nd favorite in the series behind "The Deserter". Deep episode is so raw with the near execution of Fives and Jesse and then the heart-wrenching friendly fire scene. R.I.P. Waxer. The capture of Krell was epic. Then the cryptic scenes of Krell's imprisonment and execution. Voted.

    The General. It did a much better job of showcasing Krell than Darkness on Umbara did, and it was more focused with its story than that episode as well, which just ended abruptly.

    I did not watch Bounty or Revenge. Or Brothers if that was an episode.

    Carnage will win, so I voted Friends and Enemies. I quite enjoyed most of the Undercover Brother arc.

    Of the Umbara episodes, I prefer Darkness. Plan of Dissent and Carnage of Krell are ****.

    S4 is the second best season, imo.

    S1 > S4 > S2 > S3

    I'm still figuring S5.

    So difficult to choose between Revenge, Bounty, Carnage of Krell and Friends and Enemies as well as A Friend in Need and The General, but went Revenge. I liked seeing Ventress and Obi-Wan fight together and their banter was great. Maul's return to his normal self was awesome, Sam Witwer is amazing. Great animation and duels as well.

    As ambitious as Carnege of Krell is, I have to go with Crisis on Naboo. It's even more ambitious than CoK, IMO, and is a better arc wrap-up. It also has great pacing, a rare feat achieved by TCW.

    Frankly, all of the episodes in this poll are great. It's difficult to choose the best of the best.

    So are you saying this is a btichbox than? I may be new to this forum, but I'm not new to forums themselves. You wanna bitch about this and that, go for it pal. At least try to have a sense of objectivity when you do it.

    Objectivity? Could have sworn that the comment you labeled as "so negative" had a ton of substantial criticism based on telling instead of showing, lack of in-universe logic, lack of cohesion, lack of desired expansion, and what he saw as an enormous plot hole ending.

    While yours consisted of "Ahsoka decapitating 4 dudes at the same time. That alone makes me giddy like a child".

    Please do not abuse and harass other users for their opinions on Star Wars, it is unwelcoming.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    Apparently my tone was misinterpreted. I'm not denying that what he said isn't valid. But in the end, what does that criticism do? What is it going to accomplish? There was a ton of potential there that they missed with the episode, but does complaining and hating on it do anything? There's no progression for the sake of discussion, which is the point of having forums!

    With as many o's as I used, I would think one would tell that I'm being a bit sarcastic and joking around. I didn't have the intention of shooting his opinion to the ground, I was saying--in a joke-y way--that the decapitation part was so cool one could forget everything else.

    And you wanna talk about harass and abuse: "The sooner new people learn that this isn't a hugbox the better." Read that and tell me that isn't abusive to newcomers here. If my "soooo negative" comment is abusive and harassing, I'm interested to hear what you have to say about his. If he's going to have an attitude, it's kind of hard for me not to get one as well.

    In your opinion, looks like no. In my opinion, yes.

    The criticism helps clarify the good and the bad and often teaches me something I did not know before.

    Even the complaining and hating serves to enhance my appreciation of the good.

    I disagree, his comment provoked thoughts in me that could lead to more discussion, if this was the proper place.

    I don't see how your comment of "Soooo negative. A Friend In Need gave us Ahsoka decapitating 4 dudes at the same time. That alone makes me giddy like a child." is any more conducive to discussion.

    My thoughts are that he wouldn't have to tell people "this isn't a hugbox", if he didn't have someone jump on him every time he posts criticism.

    Zand tends to react harshly to such comments, but he's right, this isn't a hugbox and comments like his are completely acceptable according to the mods and are not subject to harassment.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you were joking, but I'll give you a heads up:

    Calling someone, or their comments, "negative" is a huge powder keg around here. My advice would be to avoid it. Feel free to ignore my advice as you wish, of course.

    Welcome to LACWAC.

    I don't see how there can possibly be "progression for the sake of discussion" when one takes the attitude that "only positive comments are allowed because complaints don't accomplish anything."

    If one suppresses criticism and only allows comments along the lines of "OMG THAT DECAPITATION WAS AWESOME," there is no discussion. Cheerleading practice without the gymnastics maneuvers maybe, but no discussion.

    And no forum is a hug box, especially if people are going to take it personally when people dislike a work of art that they like. I'm fairly new around here myself, only came in last summer, and I've always felt welcome in LACWAC, but I came in looking for discussion as opposed to a fan club. (And I hold a lot of opinions around here that no one else shares, I liked some episodes that got a lot of criticism. And that is perfectly OK.)

    My comment was a playful jab at his. Kind of a "hey buddy cheer up, it's not that bad". Sarcasm is hard to convey through text but I assumed and, clearly, failed. What they say about assuming is true.

    I didn't "jump" on him as you put it, but apparently that's how he took it. Again, assumption. Baaaad Embomania.

    Is it my fault he reacts that way? No. does he need to react so aggressively? No. but he didn't know where I was coming from, so there ya go. Still, I have to say that if this isn't a hugbox (which I never intended the comment to be), what is it? Can we not "hug it out"? Is this place only for criticism, and nothing else? Because that's how you make it sound. That we have to tip-toe around each others comments or else all hell will break lose. Frankly, it sucks.

    Oy. Not making any friends around these parts. I'm saying that criticism goes nowhere. You're right, praise go nowhere either. But I wasn't praising, I was playing around. His comment wasn't constructive in my mind, so that's why I said what I did. A simple sarcastic, playful comment. What I was getting at with the sake of discussion is that there was no constructiveness in what he said. No where to build on; it just felt like he hated everything and that was it.

    Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go smack my head on that wall over there.

    I'm sorry if it seems like we're ganging up on you here, just terrible forum drama. I assure you that you have not made any enemies either, and that you have nothing to worry about so far.

    This place is not a hugbox or a bashbox, it's both and more. All comments within the Terms of Service are welcome. That means people are welcome to praise or criticize as they please, as long as it's within the Terms of Service, and they are not to be harassed for doing so. Harassing someone for criticizing the show would be against the Terms of Service, according to the mods. I understand that harassment was not your intent and I do not hold that comment against you.

    Perhaps this entire discussion could have been avoided if you did not use the word "negative". The word really is that much of a powder keg.

    It's not really your fault that he reacts that way, though I believe there is blame that can be placed, I'd rather not play that game. Let's just say there's history.

    That we have to tip toe does suck, I agree.

    It's really not my intention to be difficult, or to suck the fun out of posting for you, I sincerely welcome you to LACWAC and hope you stick around and enjoy your time here.
