  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 presume that's how this episode will go, but I expect the entire arc storyline to be resolved in some way.

    If they kill Barriss she would probably been on the Who Will Fall because she is not an unknown character like Steela.

    Yes. Personally, I'm glad, there is such a thing as too many clips...

    Yeah, I felt like I'd watched half the Mauldalore arc before it aired. Less is more.

    That's why we restricted discussion of the video clips to this thread. They give away half the episode!!

    The monument at the center of the Republic military base plaza is an enormous slab of Geonosian rock listing the names of the clone troopers who fell in action in the Clone Wars’ first battle.

    That's...thousands of names. Four thousand, nine hundred, eighty-two clone commandos, and another uncertain but multi-thousand number of standard troopers. That's a hell of a monument.

    Well, that must have cost a fair amount. I'm reminded of an early section of Labyrinth Of Evil, where Bail Organa muses that Republic propaganda glorifies the exploits of the clone army and does not often give the Jedi the spotlight. This monument, significantly, honours individual clone troopers by name.

    However, TCW has also shown that the Republic's treatment of clones is also draconian. Gascon's bloviating about how much more glorious death in combat is than menial civilian labour makes sense IU in light of this monument. Having their deeds and fallen comrades commemorated does not necessarily translate to fairness. The fundamentals of the clone army are still ethically unsound, no matter how clones and the force they fight in are honoured and glorified.

    Anyway, note also the mastiffs running with the shocktroopers. A space age society still requires K9 units, apparently.

    Have you ever seen a human out track a German Shepherd or a better yet Bloodhound? The canine is still a vastly superior being to the human in all but thought. Technology just is never as good as what nature designed.

    This is very interesting, I'm still surprised clones would get any kind of statue and more so their names would be on it. I wonder if they mean names or numbers? Ah well, its probably more of a publicity stunt than an actual tribute to the Clone Troopers. Like how Roman Emperors would build stuff to show off their power and wealth. I can't imagine folks who can't get hot showers are real happy with that statue.
