    >> I wish I could read more of the books/comics for once if just to get more of the clone wars!<<

    Try amazon, your local book store or library. I'll post a quick timeline list for you, if it helps.


    >>The looks of Ventress is based off of a rejected Sith concept for AotC. Unfortunately, for Bounty Hunter (another game) they based their character off the exact same concept! LOL So we have to near identical sisters running around the galaxy! What's worse, is they sound exactly alike too! <<

    While they DO sound alike, and both use curved dual lightsabers and, background wise, were trained by Dooku in some way (Ventress as a Dark Jedi, Vosa while she was still a Padawan), their actual character design is quite different- Ventress is white-skinned, tatooed, bald and overall rather skeletal; by contrast, Komari Vosa has red spiked hair, flesh toned skin and an overall more S&M outfit.

    Also, she's not a Sith. She's a dark Jedi . She tries to pass herself off as a Sith and Dooku tells her otrherwise. *ahem*

    Wait till next episode.

    In fact, the title of this chapter according tothe OS was "The last Dark Jedi standing"

    The new Homing Beacon says the guy who does the voice for Dooku also did the voice for Shockwave on the old Transformers! He was my all-time favorite character. They didn't use him that much. He stayed on Cybertron while everyone was fighting on Earth. I thought the most accurate voicework so far is the one being done for Obi-Wan Kenobi. Dooku was close though. They get that "Chris Lee" feel going pretty well! Chapter 5 with Kit Fisto is my favorite, but this is close. I'm glad they have Asajj using "Force speed" power from Episode I.

    I LOVED this episode. In addition to the aliens mentioned, I also notcied a Trandosan... and don't groan at me purists.. but a few EU aliens.

    I don't remember the names of all of them but one was definatly a barabel.

    I have been critical of the series so far, but this episode was excellent.

    It was okay. It looks like the series is finally gonna go somewhere from here... or maybe we'll just keep seeing 5 minute clips of fighting and be more bored out of our minds.

    Very cool episode. As always anything to do with the darkside is so appealing. I don't know how much they will be able to reveal about why they want Anakin assassinated but I'd like to know. Is it Dooku's plot on his own or is this Sidious calling this shot. Do they know of the prophecy or not
    ? Those kind of questions. I know these are not canon but there is some direction from Lucas.

    Depends.. obth Sith lords probably have there reasons.. for Sidious, keep after Anakin and get him to unleash anger in combat.. For Dooku, the destruction of his eventual replacemnt.. which he knows his master will do when once he has sereved his purpose to Sidious, hoping instead to eventually claim Asajj as his apprentice?

    I love Asajj's voice. It's like a mix between Raven on the Teen Titans and Eartha Kitt. Too awesome.

    She says she's a sith, but she's really not. Think that will be explained in the cartoon?

    I have noticed that these ppl making the sw cartoon have a liking for long necks and balls hanging from the backs of necks. Ah well, hopefully this short cartoon series will open the door for larger full length series to come!!

    They probably want to assassinate Anakin because, because of what Yoda said in the Chapter 1 Intro.

    Every one is recognizing that Anakin is distinguishing himself as a powerful warrior. If you want to win battles, its a good idea to take out the best warriors and strategians. Seeing is how Anakin is a commander and "the best pilot in the Order" besides, it makes plenty of sense to take him out.

    Not only does it boost Separatist morale, but it also helps you in actual combat.

    Asajj Ventress swiftly went from some unkown character that I loaded icons of, and some unknown character in the EU I had no understanding about... to being one of the most badass things ever known to mankind.

    Maybe a little over-dramatic, but you get the picture.

    Can you say "ownz"?
