There isn't a lot about Assaj Ventriss that I like. I don't like the fact that she's the latest "Jedi plot device" needed to move the story along. I don't like the fact that she's following in the footsteps of Darth Maul, in that she serves only to fight Jedi with barely any dialogue. And I really, really, REALLY hate the character design. That said, I do like the action being presented in the episode. The idea of a gladitorial area was well used here, and I though the action was very well done. Oh, and the inner Transfan in me REALLY loves the fact that Corey Burton (Shockwave) did the voice of Count Dooku. Having heard it while playing Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campagins, I knew how well he could imitate Christopher Lee.
