    So what? We see Obi-Wan and other Jedi running from Grievous all the time, so they're all cowards in the end.

    Savage is a completely boring villain He had potential to be interesting but lost that the moment he became Mauls lackey .

    Windu doesn't like Grievous because he doesn't fight fair. He uses cunning and trickery. In TCW he's just depicted as a buffoon recently except Massacre

    Yeah, Obi Wan didn't run and hide for 20 years and Yoda didn't run after the duel with Sidious.

    I wonder if we'll ever get to see Grievous use the blaster he uses in ROTS in TCW? We've only seen him use a Clone pistol and Battle Droid blaster so far.

    That is what they are cause of the logic they apply.

    That would be cool.

    The droid moron has been rendered useless at this point... and as a lackey or not, I'll take Savage as a Jedi killer over him every day of the week.

    Grievous was far from useless in Massacre, he even saved Dooku's life.

    Did he kill any Jedi in Massacre? Cause I was talking as Jedi killer...

    But since you brought up his usefulness, an orbital strike could've saved sorry Dooku just the same.
    Any OOM command battle droid could have carried out that task. ;)

    Grievous just preferred to handle the matter "face to face." :D

    That still doesn't make him useful, just confrontational...:p

    He captured two Jedi Council members that he could've easily killed, why he didn't choose to is beyond me.

    In the case of Eeth Koth, wasn't he trying to set a trap for more Jedi and then kill all of them?

    True that, he may have been planning the same with Adi Gallia, but I would've rather seen him just kill them.

    No it's confirmed by RotS novel which is G canon.

    Hence my Lit comment, and THIS is most-def not the Lit.:p

    EDIT:
    (I'm not the one who needs any canon-lessons, but the same cannot be said for TCW writers)

    True! He did fulfill his mission and stop Talzin and derail Ventress for good.

    There have been almost no Jedi kills in this show that are not associated with either Maul or a Bounty Hunter.
    Dissing Massacre for a Grievous win is like Dissing Umbara for not being Rex-centric enough. :D

    Hhahahaha... right! Savage, the one that has no brain and is a total waste of animation.
    No, thank you! You can keep your Savage.


    The PROBLEM is that the show, LUCAS the MORON and his lackies can not write Grievous well and when they do use him, they do him in the most awful way possible.

    The problem is not that Grievous is a moron but that the person who dictates the writing of the character of Grievous IS a moron AKA George Lucas the moron.

    Lucas just does not respect Grievous the same way he keeps Darth Vader safe from being humiliated.

    Maul should have been kept alive in the films by Sidious; as a forerunner to Vader, and the droid general should never have been created.

    :rolleyes:

    I am sorry but as a fan of General Grievous, I very strongly disagree. Maybe Maul should have never been created and Grievous be the main villain of the prequels from the start. [face_talk_hand]

    Grievous is a better than Darth Maul hands down.
