  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.

    I doubt they will show the Maul Arc before the Clovis and the Clovis Arc was supposed be after the Onderon Arc till they changed it to the Young Jedi Arc

    Things can still change though.

    Though it looks like we WILL be getting an episode on the 8th December because the Cartoon Network schedule now appears to be working and they are showing 'A Sunny Day in the Void' on Sunday 9th December so one assumes that it will air on Saturday 8th as well.

    So we would be halfway through the season before Xmas break. :)

    Maul will be too much of epicosity for fans to be followed by just Clovis.

    Maybe since its on Saturday the break will never come. If it does, only a single day marathon would interrupt TCW. Not like CN plays classic Christmas cartoons anymore anyways.

    Possibly. Though I'd prefer a break in this case for my own personal reasons. :p

    I'd rather keep it coming although on the flip side that means a longer break until season 6. We'll all go insane.

    Interestingly, the snail guy's shoulder patch is an emblem with six radial arms rather than the standard Republic eight-arm emblem. It's either the Imperial emblem or a six-arm variant of the Republic emblem.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Beyond the obvious fact that he's a snail, this could be the first non-clone and non-Jedi army officer (as opposed to navy officer) seen in TCW itself. In one of the TCW comic arcs, Ozzel (the clumsy and stupid one) shows up as an army Colonel and AT-TE commander serving under Plo Koon, Kit Fisto and Commander Wolffe. Naturally, he seems to fail as much on the ground as he does in space. Since the snail guy is aiming for a promotion to the rank of Brigadier General, he's probably also a Colonel.

    As far as the crack team of droids is concerned, it seems dysfunctional already. Colonel Snail can't understand anything that the astromech droids are saying, so he has to rely on the pit droid for translation. The pit droid is tongue-tied in front of the commanding officer and is also a self-aggrandising clumsy airhead. Of course, it would help if Colonel Snail could interpret basic sounds of discomfort from the astromechs rather than ignore them when the pit droid fails to communicate them to him.

    R2-D2 must feel like Blackadder in the WW1-era series. :p

    I have a feeling that I'll hate at least the pit droid.

    Too bad C3PO isn't going to be there to knock over R2. Then Mr snail would be nothing but goo! hooray! =D

    I think this is going to be pure comedy. Brent Friedman don't let me down buddy.

    What gave you the hint? The pit droid running into the wall or the general ignoring the droids' questions?

    Both. The Pit Droid in general seems like he has been designed to be little more than comedic. My love of cartoons will save me.

    Well if this is going to be a comedic arc before we get to the more gritty, gritty stuff, then hopefully they can pull it off.
