  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    I shamelessly stole borrowed this game from the Lit forum, and it's mod-approved so here goes.

    The idea is to summarize each episode in one sentence or less to create an "Essential Viewer's Guide" for TCW episodes. That way people who forgot to set their DVRs busy professionals who might not be able to watch every episode will have very brief summary of it.

    Rules:

    1. The briefer the better, but you do have to actually summarize the episode. "It sucks" doesn't count. "Awesome" doesn't count either.

    2. Readers vote for their favorite summations using the oh-so-handy "like" button. I'll put a new episode up for vote every three days or so and keep a tally of who got the most "likes." Winners will get the privilege of getting tagged in the thread as the winner, unless the mods decide to do something else.

    3. Theoretical bonus points if you make me laugh. I would add more theoretical bonus points if you make me laugh when I'm in a crappy mood, but that would make Moonman a potential winner, so...no on that.

    First up: TCW movie.

    And here is mine:

    Anakin meets his match in a 14-year-old girl in a tube top, Obi-Wan flirts with Ventress, Jabba the Hutt reproduces and OT references abound.

    And...go.

    Good idea.

    Inexplicably, Anakin gets a half-dressed apprentice and they start a one-up contest that will last the whole series, Obi-Wan and Ventress engage in foreplay that will last the whole series, Jabba's Uncle Truman Capote betrays him and Anakin and Dooku duel for the first but definitely not the last time in the series.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars Film:
    Anakin's Padawan is very orange, Yoda's head is inflated, Obi-Wan and Ventress are sexually frustrated, Hutts are asexual, Anakin duels Dooku for what he thinks is the last time, and Christophsis civilians are nonexistent.

    Series as a whole:

    It's like a big steamroller of fail that occasionally has chunks of quality flake off of the increasingly bloated and self important smugness.

    TCW Movie:
    Anakin gets given an apprentice even though he is still an apprentice, Grievous stands on a ship thinking to himself why he didn't get a bigger role in this movie, Obi-Wan flirts with his bald friend, while Jabba, being the great father he is, loses his baby, leaving the whole of the republic to go on a massive mission to find him.

    Ambush: "Battle droids have awful humor while Yoda proves that he is a sheer badass at the expense of Ventress."

    Do you all want to do one episode a day instead of every three?

    Clone Wars movie:
    Jedi Anakin Skywalker, his (oddly) scantily-clad padawan, and a courageous band of clone troopers led by the ever redoubtable Captain Rex embark on a daring rescue mission of an odorous Hutt larva; while Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi is reunited with Dark Acolyte-temptress Asajj Ventress for a lightsaber tango under the silver moonlight.

    Mannequin gets perky alien teen to help him save odorous tadpole from the clutches of Mr Burns, whilst his stuffy master has lunch with Connery and flirts with a PVC-clad goth.

    AkashKedavra_93, I believe AF said one episode every three days. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. ;)

    In some universe that looks an awful lot like Star Wars, our heroes Skyguy and Block Beard team up with Snips and Artooie to stop Truman Capote and Count Dracula from gaining Don Corleone's support by framing the heroes for killing the crime lord's son, Stinky.

    Good ones, guys. I'm going out of town tonight for a Christmas family get-together; I'll tally tomorrow and start the three days on Ambush. Looks like Garth is handily winning this round so far.

    Yoda is a badass, plays saber-snatch with Ventress, and every other character reacts to Yoda with "WTF?"

    A daring young B1 officer, recently promoted to Commander, matches wits with on the sinister Lieutenant Thire and the relentless General Yoda on the battlefield... and loses, though not much more badly than Ventress.

    Yoda shows off infront of his Clone Troopers by destroying every Droid that he sees, while Lieutenant Thire helps Yoda instead of trying to track him down for Darth Sidious, and then Yoda stops Obi-Wan's bald girlfriend from killing Watto's uncle.

    A small, green, whirling, twirling, giggling, chuckling, shriveled creature armed with a lightsaber activates god-mode on a battalion of battle droids and Dooku's Sith wanna-be while a band of clone troopers looks on, jaws agape.

    Strong with the Force Ventress is, but not as strong as Yoda.

    Count Dooku gives the future Hoth rebels a weapon against the Empire, and Anakin teaches Ahsoka that she should pretend to play along with the Council and he would teach her how to break the rules later.

    Straight from Dave Filoni's heart: The clones have no self-worth, but it's okay because Plo Koon is a swell guy and turn the ship around, Ahsoka knows where Plo is.

    Count Dooku and General Grievous play with their newest toy, Ashoka learns the fine arts of rule-breaking, Anakin clashes with the Council and gets a taste of his own medicine. Meanwhile, Plo Koon takes his men for a stroll in space.
