    Loved it. Very, very militaresque.

    Did anybody get some "Band of Brothers" vibes?

    AWESOME!!! :D

    There was so little dialogue and so much action... loved the ARC captain's gun-twirling... and the ARC trooper who blows up the AAT single-handedly, that rocked!!!

    Sweet action episode... I'm glad they were allowed to actually kill Clonetroopers in the show ::)

    Loved the running-up-the-walls bit, and using the remote to get a 360 of the area was a cool tactic.

    And the ARC Captain firing at the little dragon rat thing was funny ::)

    Hehe, some "Jango-esque" gun-twirling!

    :)

    This episode definately showed the similiarities the arcs have with jango. That was great especially the arc at the mtt.

    Just watched Chapter 3 and I must say, it's the best one yet! It's starting to come together now. :D BTW, what was that dragon-looking thing that was shot at and skittered away when the ARCs walked up?

    Send in the clones!!!!!!!

    I liked the lack of dialogue there...built up the tension quite nicely I think!

    This is sort of like reading a comic one page at a time. This really is going to be one 10-part story! Can't wait for more!

    Go gunslinger red ARC Trooper Commander!!! Awesome! So efficient, so technical, crazy. Did you see the blue one in the AAT? Jumps in, blows em all away, jumps out, BOOM. What, 5 seconds?

    That was brilliant!
    I really like how there was almost no dialogue in the entire episode. The 'sounds' that the ARC trooper's armor makes when they are giving hand signals and moving around is really cool.

    I also liked the little tribute to Jango.

    Pretty cool. All ARC troopers all the time.

    Kenobi's troops seem to be doing quite well on land... what about Anakin in the air?


    Good stuff again. That orb was the coolest. And I like how there is little dialog, it doesn't really need it.

    Oh yeah, gun twirling= Jango. VERY NICE.

    Jango lives on in that red ARC trooper. Man that makes me want that clone commando game.

    SCAWEET!!!

    ARC Troopers in action!!! So it looks like the red ones are the leaders. I thought it was awesome when the Trooper jumped inside the AAT and wreaked havoc. Then they scaled up the gun turrent...awesome. Tho it seems like they coulda squeezed more in in that last little bit with the ARCs standing at the top of the gun turrent. All in all tho, a good one. And next time, we get to see those droid bikers!

    Very, very, very cool -- from the Black Hawk Down setup to the Private Ryan tactics in taking down a tank to the fact that (unlike, say, old G.I. Joe and Transformers cartoons) actual casualties!

    If this cartoon manages a Wilhelm sound effect, it will be the coolest cartoon, like, ever.

    As it is, it's running second place behind Samurai Jack. But not bad at all.

    I can't say enought about this one. At the same time, speachless.

    ARC troopers rule. think we'll see them in EPIII?

    Looks like the running time was the shortest of the three so far, yet it seems to have had the most well defined action sequence.

    ARC Troopers officially rock. Something must have happened with one of the later batches of clones to produce the Stormtrooper Syndrome...
