    blu-ray is the way to go.The animation is absolutely stellar, even the Season 1 episodes look great. Watching the Geonosis trilogy or Umbara in blu-ray is so worth it though.

    BTW I definitely see Obi-Wan on the cover this year, it's really between him and Ahsoka, Rex hasn't really been used at all so he isn't an option.

    Get the DVD sets unless you really care about visual bliss (TCW season 4 Blu-ray set is on my list of Blu-rays to use when I want to show off my HDTV's picture quality). Otherwise the Blu-ray sets may not be worth it. The special features are pretty lacking @Paul22Scholes.

    I'm a complete visual and audio-phile, so I definitely go for the Blu-Rays. There's not that much price difference between Blu-Ray and DVD now anyway.

    As I live in the UK, I have to watch TCW on my computer. It's like watching the episodes for the first time again when I watch the Blu-Rays.

    Even compared to the HD broadcast in the US, I still feel like I'm watching the episodes for the first time when I get the blu rays.

    Umbara is phenomenal on Blu-Ray...I honestly don't know anyone who buys dvds anymore...it doesn't make sense to waste the money on a dvd version of something if there's a BD counterpart. TCW in HD just keeps getting better and better - think about that D-squad explosion....sooo beautiful.

    I usually just wait a month and then get the Blu Ray set for $20 or less on eBay. A lot of people seem to buy a BR, watch it once and then sell it at a significant loss. [face_dunno]

    I get that same rush. TCW looks gorgeous in full 1080 in correct aspect ration. None of the crappy macroblocking that happens on the CN broadcasts during fast action. I gotta say even with Umbara where I'd already watched the episodes several times I noticed new details popping out. Still I'm not a video or audiophile, except when I really like something like TCW. Its a $10usd diff on Amazon and $25 diff to walk into BestBuy and pick it up here.

    Wrong! The episode commentary videos with Filoni and crew are always great. The S1 are awesome because there is a video commentary for every episode. S2 and 3 not quite as awesomely plentiful because only one video commentary per arc. S4 is great though because there is a long round table commentary with Filoni and crew for every arc as they watch the episodes and there are a lot of funny parts. All the sets are worth it for the awesome blu ray visuals.

    Nah, the commentaries are cool but I mostly find they just say alot of the same stuff that was already in the episode commentaries, even with the S4 arcs. My favorite special features are the few deleted scenes in some of them, particularly the Rako Hardeen arc. One of those suckers really backs up my analysis of that arc.

    Ahsoka should get the cover for the final TCW season. It would make more sense that way. I vote for Obi-Wan for season 5. Though I get the feeling that he will probably never get a TCW season cover.

    I love sifting through the Jedi Archives special feature. Looking at all the models isolated from the backgrounds, the pre-renders, it's all very interesting to me.

    Ahsoka should not be on any cover, but Obi-Wan deserves to be on the S5 cover, but S5 has the most Ahsoka episodes so maybe the S5 cover will have Ahsoka...

    Uggghhh.. Umbara... I do not like it, but the visuals look nice and creative.

    Speaking of extras, that really makes me think what will they do for Season five since the commentaries in S5 are much more complex and bigger than the little there was for S4.


    And Speaking of visuals, I really do not want to see Mustafar next week... so do not want to see. It makes me hate TCW for overusing Mustafar for what it is not.

    I dunno, Mustafar makes me think of an army born from hell. Could be great symbolism. I guess they could insert random lava world C into there.

    Ahsoka is one of the main characters in the show so she is bound to get a cover eventually.

    Do you go by number of episodes they appear in as a main character or their appearances throughout the entire season?

    Obi-Wan is in only one arc, but Ahsoka is the only main cast member that appears in 3 arcs.


    Symbolism.. yes... but any lave world would work for such symbolism. Mustafar was supposed to be a remote CIS world owned by Wat Tambor's Techno Union. But since ROTS, it has become a former Jedi haven and a resting place for HK-47 and was training ground for Maul and home for Sidious and this week it will also now be a Black Sun base location... TOO much.

    She will get one.

    Yeah, going back to Mustafar over and over again is not my cup of tea.

    It reminds me of Dark Horse Comics' rule against going to Tatooine.

    Apart from Legacy, but it made sense there. ;)

    Hmm, I don't class Onderon arc as a proper arc for her. She was mainly a background character in that, not really doing much with that one focusing on the rebels (I think you are forgetting Anakin and Obi-Wan were in that arc as well, again as background characters but they can still be classed as main characters as appearing in that arc - actually in every arc that has aired so far this year Obi-Wan has featured in, in some capacity, whether its small, medium or large). Young Jedi is more about the kids then Ahsoka, though I do agree she is a main cast member in that but less of one, but then also Obi-Wan was a main cast member in 'Bound For Rescue.' Ahsoka's big episode in that arc, for me, was A Necessary Bond. Whereas the kids had the first three episodes. Then of course there is her big arc coming up.

    Ahsoka may have featured in three big arcs but if you count both Anakin and Obi-Wan's appearances in them, Anakin has a total of 2 arcs (Onderon and presumably the finale arc), Obi-Wan has 3, possibly 4 if he features in the finale at all (Maul, Onderon, Young Jedi), Ahsoka as you say has 3.

    What can I say? I'm trying to convince myself that this is Kenobi's turn to be on the cover :p

    Heck if Yoda can be on the Season 2 cover and feature in 3 episodes (?) to get that.... :p

    @hlc88

    Ahsoka has a main role in 8 episodes: "Onderon arc" and "Young Jedi arc".

    Obi-Wan has a main role in 3 episodes, "Revival", "A War on Two Fronts" and "Bound for Rescue".

    Obviously Obi-Wan will have a big role in the next arc, but Ahsoka will have a big role in the finale. My point is that Ahsoka has clearly been the main focus this season. She actually deserves the cover.

    IMO, Anakin was the main focus of Seasons 1, 2 and 4 while Ahsoka has Seasons 3 and 5.
