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

    Season 4 is my favourite season of the show. It is the second season to contain 22 episodes I enjoy watching. It took my 2nd and 3rd 10/10 ratings - Escape from Kadavo was just brilliant in all aspects. I haven't read the comic so can't compare it to that, but Obi-Wan having to let others be hurt is something I really hope to see more of in the novel Kenobi coming out later this year. It's fascinating to see Obi-Wan broken like that, even if it makes me a little sad. Anakin being instantly disarmed by Dooku was a nice touch. Miraj falling for Anakin was also just an intriguing scenario. Final battle with Plo Koon had great cinematography, and Rex killing Argus for Obi-Wan was root-worthy.

    The Maul stuff has been talked over to death. I'll just say that I was skeptical, and they didn't explain his resurrection, but he was a competent and threatening villain for Obi-Wan. In fact, he holds the strongest presence as a villain in the show, I feel. The 9.5/10 was bumped an extra 0.5 for an effective Asajj/Obi-Wan team-up. Oh, and "I want that back." "Don't worry. Red's not my colour."

    Yeah, I love the misadventures of C-3PO and R2-D2. It was an homage to Droids in a really big way IMO, and as two episodes of comedic fun, it was fun. Go ahead and tell me you didn't tear up when the duo were losing power! The closest we've had to a death scene, and it showed me how sad I'd be if these two ever left us.

    Season 4 was my favorite season, by far. From the Deception arc with Cad Bane to Umbarra with Krell and the Clones to The Slaves arc with the big 3... It was all Awesome. Climaxed with The return of Darth Maul. Sadly, for Maul it was all downhill from here for season 5. Anyways, even the Mon calamari stuff was cool and although I didn't like the droid stuff it wasnt THAT bad and was only a small part of the season. This episode had it all, Maul, Tons of anakin/obi/Ahsoka, lots of dooku lots of ventress and grievous and it even had a great jar jar episode with tarpals as well. Best moment for me in the season was Grievous & his army vs Ventress and her army. Awesome stuff!

    Season 4 had pacing better too. In Season 5, I felt as if the 4-parters really dragged, taking a whole month to tell the whole story, whereas Season 4 has three 4-parters, and two trilogies, yet I never felt like it dragged on. I was also excited to see the next episode.

    ^Completely agree here... The pacing in season 5 dragged a lot, yet on arcs like the maul arc they could have used some more episodes. With the exception of the ahsoka arc, I feel like the pacing in S5 was completely off. Season 4 was perfect, I wish season 5 was a mix of 1,2,3 & 4 part-ers and we got 22 episodes.

    I remember Brothers now in a lot higher regard than I used too, simply because of what it led into.

    Average Score* = 8.02 (176.5/220)

    Easily the best season in terms of overall quality. at least three-quarters of this season qualified as worth watching more than once, with animation and storytelling quality seemingly at the top of LFA's game. The 3-4 episode arcs here (Umbara, Rako Hardeen, and Ventress/Maul Returns) were some of the best episodes the series had to offer.

    *I rounded up or down some episodes with .25 or .75 at the end, to avoid confusion.
