    Sounds like things will get real interesting for Ahsoka at the end of this season. I'm so curious about that.

    I must agree. This season has better distribution of focus and it does focus on other characters and not just the main cast. THAT IS PRICELESS as Hondo would say.
    So far this move has allowed me NOT to get sick of some characters like I was in S4 with ANAKIN and Rex. This season it is very well managed so everybody has equal per say time to shine on the TV.


    Focusing mainly on characters like Hondo, the Younglings, the droids, Gascon, Gregor and Ventress allows the season to feel more diverse and interesting. Especially since all are OCs that we do not know the fate of. That is a million times better than having 3 or 4 arcs with a focus on Anakin like last season.


    Zip your mouth, fan of Anakin. I will NOT stand for Ahsoka to ruin the Clovis arc. We have enough to be happy or worried about with Embo or Padme, Anakin or CLOVIS!

    Ok but I when I watch TCW I do not say to myself: YAY! So much Ahsoka and so little interesting stuff for me. Good for those who love a lot of Ahsoka and they are getting her so it is their heyday. BUT 3 arcs about her or with her is ENOUGH.
    Time to give other characters, that is why I like the direction right away of the newest droid arc cause it kicked out all the main cast in the first 2 minutes.

    Balance is where is at. Not too much and too little of somebody or something. If there is no balance but only overuse, the character that is overused can become stale.

    It just occurred to me how spoiled we are with the diverse group of characters that we could get on any given episode. Most TV series focus on the same characters EVERY SINGLE EPISODE and yet we have a vast array of characters who get rotated in and out.

    I feel it should be Obi-Wan on the cover for the S5 blu-ray too. He's already appeared in more episodes then Anakin this season :p I expect he'll pop up in the Clovis arc and the finale arc too, though with less of a role. If Ahsoka ever gets a DVD cover, I bet it will be the last season.

    Really this is how I see things when it comes to character usage in TCW. We can play the spoiled fangirl/fanboy game all day. I want more of this guy and more of that guy. At the end of the day there are alot of characters fighting for screen time and the characters that need that focus most are the original ones central to TCW's overall stories and the perspective they are lending me, the viewer, threw the war. Its no wonder Rex, Fives, Cad Bane, Ahsoka, Satine, and Hondo are so popular. I love Obi-wan and want to see more of him, lets flesh out the movie characters and enrich the story as the Maul arc this season will do and the Rako Hardeen did last season. We should still bare in mind characters like him, Anakin, and Padme are otherwise set in stone. The ones that will move TCW forward and keep it fresh are the characters with the most possibilities. We also gotta give more time to customer who orbit that main cast and move the story forward instead of throwing characters in for fan service. Characters like Barriss for example.

    We are not SPOILED, we are blessed!

    SW is a diverse and vibrant world that has a lot to offer in terms of characters. Having many characters is mandatory for a show like this.
    If it had the amount of characters like the horrible show Ben 10 or something like that then it would be awful to watch.


    I am calm, dear Vader... it is rare but we agree here - no Ahsoka would be better for the Clovis arc. And by that I also mean no shoehorned cameo by her.

    Ahsoka is in the Clovis arc

    In the trailer they are attacking cato nemoidia together with their starfighters, which is part of the Clovis arc.

    Ok... we will see how much she appears if so. I hope she does not ruin the potentially great battle.

    With all we know occurring in the arc, I don't think Ahsoka would be there too much.

    Obi-Wan definitely deserves this year's DVD/Blu-Ray cover. The pain he is going to go through in Mauldalore...

    Ahsoka should get the last season's DVD/Blu-Ray cover, that would be fitting, regardless of her fate

    In terms of Blu-Ray disc covers, I would have to say I would like:

    Hondo Ohnaka (Episodes 1-9)
    Gregor (Episodes 10-16)
    Sidious (Episodes 17-22)

    Same here with me being MEH about Ahsoka.


    For that arc I hope nobody but Obi-Wan from the heroes is featured.


    Hmmm... The new Hondo model will look gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood on a disc. Gregor is a Republic commando NUFF SAID and Sidious is Sidious.

    I agree with the idea for the Discs. It definately seems like Kenobi should get this cover. Hondo would be great on the first disc. It'll probably be WAC on the 2nd Disc and then Sids should go on the 3rd. =D ...It'll probably be freaking Savage or Maul again though. =/

    It won't be WAC. They would put somebody action-packed.

    I hope that happens off screen. We do not need to see everything Anakin does. Like we did not need to see him go to Hondo and beg for help.
    The fact he said it was enough. Same will be with this.


    I love Saw so YES if he is on one of the discs.

    Well Krell, Fives, Rex and the rest of the clonies were the focus of Umbara but none of them got on a disc. So I doubt any of the Onderon characters would make it either.

    I'm pretty sure that Anakin has like one scene in the Maul arc which would probably be like a minutes worth of screentime, though I guess that is too much screentime for you for him, eh? :p

    I still stick with Hondo. That dude deserves a cover, but I'll be happy with the disc.

    No need to speculate; we'll find out in a few weeks. Someone might buy it and spoil us, if we ask politely. If we're really lucky, someone at Amazon will goof and let us search the text again.
