So, I'm a bit late to the game for Clone Wars. I have long been a fan of the Star Wars films, but after hearing negative reviews of the Clone Wars movie, I did not follow up with much interest in the show. When I would occasionally hear people excited about the show, my interest would be piqued, and after catching a few episodes On Demand, I finally purchased the first season on iTunes. Overall, I found the season to be highly entertaining, though there were certainly a number of episodes that could have been left out in my opinion. After lurking on these boards for a bit, it seems that many people share the view that TCW tends to mix some really great story telling with quite a bit of "filler". My question for you all is this: If you could "edit" down the first 5 seasons to only the episodes that you felt contributed to the overall saga that is Star Wars, which would you choose? This doesn't necessarily have to be story arcs vs standalone/filler episodes. Really, just which episodes to you feel are vital to developing the characters and story of TCW, leaving out those episodes that just didn't seem as significant for you. I would like to see how strong of a story can be found be watching the right episodes in sequence. Here is my list for season1: The Hidden Enemy Rising Malevolence Shadow of Malevolence Destroy Malevolence Rookies Cloak of Darkness Lair of Grievous Dooku Captured The Gungan General Tresspass Storm Over Ryloth Innocents of Ryloth Liberty on Ryloth What are your thoughts? What are your own lists for season 1? What are your recommendations for the other 4 seasons?
