    I thought that I would not like an episode dedicated just to clone troopers but I was wrong. I liked it a lot. It was also most fitting to show real military tactics on Veterans Day! I have a new respect for the troopers in general due to this.

    Remember, it is also a great way to see Jango/Boba in action (from a certain point of view).

    Also I loved the little cameo of Obi-wan on hollowgram and the lead ARC Trooper calling him "General Kenobi"

    Bring on Durge and Ventress!

    Just to simplify things, here's the URLs you need to paste in to get the movies:

    Regular movie: [link=http://www.starwars.com/hyperspace/member/clonewars/mov/chapter3_0.mov]http://www.starwars.com/hyperspace/member/clonewars/mov/chapter3_0.mov[/link]
    Movie with commentary: [link=http://www.starwars.com/hyperspace/member/clonewars/mov/chapter3_1.mov]http://www.starwars.com/hyperspace/member/clonewars/mov/chapter3_1.mov[/link]

    C'mon Hyperspace staff, wake up (literally) and realize you have a problem to fix here.

    Yes, but you have to be a Hyperspace member to see those links above.

    So what problem is there to fix?

    Tux -

    do you have the hyperspace link for chapter 2's with commentary?

    and how to you get these links? I have hyperspace but the movies open in their own windows. Going to them direct like this is easier for me.

    thanks!

    Little more background info on ARC troopers:

    ...The ultimate in the clone trooper ranks were the Advanced Recon Commandos, or ARC troopers, elite infantry hand-trained by Jango Fett.
    Only a select number of ARC troopers were bred and trained before Fett's untimely demise at the Battle of Geonosis, and they were used sparingly during the Clone Wars...

    ..Though these troopers undergo growth acceleration like the standard clones, their docility and independence has not been at all altered.

    Well I saw it and it was quite cool.

    I have reiterate what others were saying about the lack of dialogue, it really worked for this episode. The troopers were quite cool, and the one ARC trooper taking on that tank :eek: wow!

    is it me or is this getting better by the 3 minutes? ;)

    The way they took out the gun and watch tower was brilliant, and I noticed the nod to Jango.

    So it is on to Durge (and then Kitty Fisto ;) ).......

    I liked it when the ARC Troop hopped inside the AAT and blasts all the droids inside and then hops out just as it it explodes.I thought that was the coolest.

    another excellent episode.

    I particularly liked the use of the hand signals, and the part where they blew up several floors of the skyscraper where the sniper Droids were hiding.

Only one line of dialogue yet a lot of clone trooper action. :D I especially liked the part where the one trooper destroyed the tank. Anyways, Isn't tonight's epsiode supposed to be the Kit Fisto one shot episode?

    You people realize that these things are only like 2 minutes long. There is no reason to [get so excited]. "OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! ANAKIN FLEW A SPACESHIP!!!!!!!"
    HOLY CRAP AND HE LOOKED AT PADME!!!!!!!!!!!!
    AND THOSE TROOPERS SHOT THINGS!!!!!!!!!
    WOW!!!!!!!!!!
    Dear god. I would actually pay more attention to these things if George Lucas would actually allow these things to be 30 minutes in length. Any ways you can all go waste another 2 minutes and then write about how a taun taun mooed at a plant in chapter 5.

    That kinda stuff isn't productive and over the 'family-friendly' aspects of the site

    I think you should watch what you're saying, everybody knows Chapter 5 hasn't aired yet.

    Seriously, the whole "30 mins thing" has been discussed for months, give it a rest already, if you don't like it, don't watch it, but don't complain to us.

    Dude, Obi wan appearing in a hologram that so reminded me of ESB when that one AT-AT pilot is talking to Vader's hologram. But I wonder how Obi Wan is going to get to where the ARC troopers are...

    the post with the links
    QUOTE FROM THEFORCE.NET (a few days ago)
    OK, Ghent from starwars.com has said that no direct links to the ~35MB AOL files are to be posted here. That also includes the sniffing and pasting of URLs embedded in Hyperspace pages.

    You can discuss the US-only free smaller-screensize version on starwars.com and cartoonnetwork.com.

    And Hyperspace members, I guess, can talk about how to retrieve the file from their cache and / or save the file using Quicktime Pro.

    Whats your answer to this?

    For everyone enjoying this series, don't let anyone rain on your parade...

    This is not for everyone and if you like it, so be it. No one else has the right to tell you not to like it.
