    I thought this would be a cool thing to do, starting from season 1. Basically rank the episodes from your favorite to least favorite.

    I'll post my list here, and I'll include the grade I gave each episode.



    Season 1

    1. Cloak of Darkness (10)
    2. Hostage Crisis (10)
    3. Trespass (10)
    4. Bombad Jedi (10)
    5. Rookies (10)
    6. The Hidden Enemy (10)
    7. Lair of Grievous (9)
    8. Duel of the Droids (9)
    9. Ambush (9)
    10. Liberty on Ryloth (9)
    11. Defenders of Peace (9)
    12. Blue Shadow Virus (9)
    13. Destroy Malevolence (9)
    14. Storm over Ryloth (8)
    15. Shadow of Malevolence (8)
    16. Jedi Crash (8)

    2. Destroy Malevolence (8.5)
    3. Defenders of Peace (8.5)

    5. Liberty on Ryloth (8.5)
    6. Innocents of Ryloth (8.5)
    7. The Gungan General (7.5)
    8. Duel of the Droids (7.5)
    9. Jedi Crash (7.5)
    10. Storm Over Ryloth (7.5)
    11. Bombad Jedi (7.5)
    12. Blue Shadow Virus (7.5)

    ahh.. lemme put my averages :)

    193/220 = 8.8/10

    Overall I think season 1 is my 2nd lowest rated season as a whole, only in front of season 5. A lot of 8's and 9's for me here, not that many 7's or below. I think probably season 1 is the most consistent season for me.

    Everything was bad, especially Bombad Jedi and Gungan General. And it got even more ridiculous!

    Pretty much agree with all of this except maybe swap Jedi Crash's and Storm Over Ryloths ratings around

    1.08: Bombad Jedi (2/10)
    1.12: The Gungan General (2/10)
    1.17: Blue Shadow Virus (2/10)

    Ordered by rating, when rating is shared, ordered by airing date.

    Most definitely my least favourite season of TCW, it was inconsistent in both tone and quality. We have awesome episodes featuring the harrowing trial of a batch of a clone rookies, an episode featuring Luminara and Nute Gunray being hilarious, and almost pre-CW feeling episodes like Trespass.

    Then we have Jar Jar, and a german mad scientist stereotype. [face_frustrated]

    1.18. Mystery of a Thousand Moons--4

    Average Score* = 6.41 (141/220)

    Season 1 was my lowest-rated season, I felt TCW was still trying to get its bearings. There was a great variety of storylines, but most of them felt somewhat disconnected from one another compared to later seasons. That said, there were plenty of episodes relating to the war at large, so it really felt like the Clone Wars.

    *I originally scored some episodes with .25 or .75 at the end to further differentiate the scores, but I decided to round up or down to avoid confusion. I also rarely give an episode a full 10/10, it must really deserve it.

    4 - Destroy Malevolence
    4 - Blue Shadow Virus
    4 - The Gungan General
    4 - Bombad Jedi
    4 - Duel of the Droids

    These ratings are all relative, since TCW is still fun at its worst. The Malevolence arc was just a bit bland for me, but I've never been big on space battles. This had some great individual episodes; everybody hates Blue Shadow Virus, but Mystery of a Thousand Moons is worlds better in my book.

    Agree with most of your list, but Rookies has to be No. 1 for the first season.
