    Overall Average = 162/200 = 8.1/10

    Lowest rated season average, although my 2nd favorite season. I might remake this list, need to rewatch Sunny Day in the Void and Secret weapons again. originally I gave Missing in action a 7, after a few rewatches it became one of my favorites, So i need to give those a 2nd chance since ive only seen them once or twice each.

    5.15: Shades of Reason (9/10)
    5.03: Front Runners (8.5/10)
    5.04: The Soft War (8.5/10)
    5.05: Tipping Points (8.5/10)
    5.06: The Gathering (8.5/10)
    5.07: A Test of Strength (8.5/10)
    5.08: Bound for Rescue (8.5/10)
    5.14: Eminence (8.5/10)
    5.17: Sabotage (8.5/10)
    5.19: To Catch a Jedi (8.5/10)
    5.02: A War on Two Fronts (8/10)
    5.12: Missing in Action (7.5/10)
    5.10: Secret Weapons (1.5/10)
    5.11: A Sunny Day in the Void (1.5/10)
    5.13: Point of No Return (1.5/10)

    Season 5 is a good season, but a little disappointing after each season building upon the last, and being greater than the last. As a result, it is ranked 4th in my seasons rating, only above Season 1.

    There was some great stuff here, especially with the Mauldalore and finale plots. Onderon and Young Jedi were both good, but not outstanding. The D-squad arc was abysmal, and I feel that giving them a 1.5 rating is generous. It still astounds me that they let those episodes be written and animated to completion. Nobody thought these were terrible? Did a 4-year old come up with the jokes? I guess they didn't realise that it's the dialogue that makes SW funny, not slapstick.

    Missing in Action rates above the others for Gregor, who should have been the star of this arc.

    174/200 = 8.7/10, favorite of the series.

    Average rating for Star Wars: The Clones Wars Season 1-5.


    Odds are, the Bonus episodes will bump this up, but this rating generally sums up my opinion about TCW. It's a great show, but it has it's moments where you're like [face_tired]. This show did not deserve some of the harsh criticisms it got on here and in the general public. It really has some great episodes in it, and is probably the best, or was the best, modern cartoon on television. I consider this to be the reason I stayed into Star Wars from 2008 - 2012, because this show really made me attached to characters like Ahsoka, and even added character development to the main movie characters (Anakin and Obi-Wan), how many cartoons can you say did that! I love this show, it's sad to see it go, but I look forward to the future animated series and to the sequels!

    17. Front Runners (7)
    18. The Gathering (7)
    19. The Soft War (6.5)
    20. A War on Two Fronts (6.5)

    Overall for the whole season: 163.5/200 = 8.1/10

    Overall for the entire series: 843/1,080 = 7.8/10

    I feel so harsh for giving the entire series a 7.8/10, I think I was being being quite harsh and should've given away more 9's and 10's to some of the episodes. But 8/10 for me is a really good episode, so 9/10 and 10/10 is an amazing episode. I'll probably rewatch some and make their grades higher.

    I'm probably going to make a thread for the entire show for tomorrow, so dont sum it all up here.

    Anyways, I rewatched Secret Weapons and Sunny Day.... Secret Weapons still got a 5/10... had some funny parts but overall was pretty meh. 5/10 is average, not good and not bad. For star wars however, thats a terrible rating....I actually enjoyed sunny day a lot, I previously gave it a 3. Probably because I didnt like the characters as much as I do now. Anyways, it was pretty slow, But I give it a 6/10 now. Increasing the season total to 165/200 and the average up to 8.3/10!!

    Season 5—Episode Scores

    5.16. The Lawless--10
    5.20. The Wrong Jedi--10
    5.15. Shades of Reason--10
    5.18. The Jedi Who Knew Too Much--10
    5.01. Revival--9.5
    5.14. Eminence--9.5
    5.19. To Catch a Jedi--9
    5.09. A Necessary Bond--8.5
    5.17. Sabotage--8
    5.05. Tipping Points--7
    5.08. Bound for Rescue--7

    5.06. The Gathering--6.5
    5.04. The Soft War--6
    5.07. A Test of Strength--6
    5.03. Front Runners--6
    5.13. Point of No Return--4
    5.10. Secret Weapons--2.5
    5.11. A Sunny Day in the Void--2

    Average Score* = 7.25 (145/200)

    An almost as inconsistent season as Season 3, and ultimately only marginally better in overall score. This season had two of my top 5 favorite episodes of all time (The Lawless and The Wrong Jedi), but also a couple of my least favorite (Secret Weapons and A Sunny Day in the Void, which ignobly ranks as my least favorite episode in TCW). Had it not been for the droid arc, this season might have been able to challenge Season 4 for supremacy. Still, if TCW had to end, it went out on a good note thanks to the last two arcs of the season.

    *I rounded up or down any .25 or .75 scores, to avoid confusion. Season 5 ties Season 3 for most 10/10's.

    TCW Overall Score (up to the end of Season 5) = 7.10 (767/1080); apparently, I grade more critically than IMDB
