  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels 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.

    Again, these rankings are all relative. I love it all.

    Bounty Hunters might be my favorite episode of the series. Lots of cool stuff... certain episodes seem out of place to me though, like Cat and Mouse and Grievous Intrigue.

    Cat and Mouse takes place before every other episode in the series, and carried the short-lived tradition of episode 16 being a prequel to the movie.

    What's your meaning on Grievous Intrigue?

    I knew that about Cat and Mouse, but of the two prequel eps, I much prefer Hidden Enemy.

    Anyway, it's more an aesthetic thing; those episodes are very cold and gray... they almost feel more like something from the Malevolence arc. Grievous Intrigue didn't really seem to have much of a point, except to be a constant battle... something I think Landing At Point Rain pulls off better. Haven't seen it in a while though.

    At a certain point, it almost becomes about how much "GFFA crunchiness" we get out of an episode, that really makes it memorable for me. Cameos and all that fanservice junk totally works on me.

    They feel like the Malevolence arc because they take place in space! Space is awesome! :p

    For fanservice, you have Eeth Koth and Adi Gallia. It's also one of Grievous' high points - an episode that makes him actually have a plan. While it doesn't succeed, he doesn't seem incompetent unlike his every appearance in the first season.

    I'd class Grievous Intrigue as one of my favourites of the show.

    Heheh, pffft, space... there's nothing there to look at! It's space!

    But naw. I know it's a fan favorite. Like I said, though... it's all aesthetics. If I can't get a beautiful planetside landscape background painting in the episode, I'm considerably less interested. <- even made Blue Shadow Virus tolerable for me... those Naboo settings and whatnot.

    Yes, I'm a big fan of space and spaceships, but the beauty of fantastical worlds is not lost on me. In fact, I'm a big fan of the Ratchet & Clank series of video games, one reason being that each game features about 20 unique planets, each with their own distinctive themes.

    TCW is certainly beautiful. Look at Lola Sayu, Mortis, Zygeria, or Coruscant - all very eye-pleasing worlds to look at.
