I thought it was well worth it that I declared a Clone Wars Holiday for myself today and didn't go to work just to make sure I get to see the first episode. Chapter 1 was great, although I agree with some that since they included a lot of it in the promos, we've seen most of the action before. So early in the series and we're seeing Palpy manipulating things already. Heheh. Cool. I think the music also helped to bring the true Star Wars aura of the whole thing. I love you John Williams. Padme looked kinda funny. The scene where Anakin whips off his cloak and ends up on Threepio's face was hilarious. I was surprised with Obi-Wan's line about his Master Qui-Gon not being able to prepare him for the war. I thought that line served to tie the whole thing to the movies and somehow grounded Obi-Wan's character effectively. I wish the episodes weren't so short... Bring on more!
