I ended up polishing off ep.13-20 a few days ago, and I really liked what I saw. Clearly, it continues Clone Wars somewhat odd trend like last year where all of the best stuff comes right at the end. Not that the middle arcs were bad but considering how much potential this show has, and when it clicks like it did for those last 2 arcs it's gold, but it is a bit bewildering how middling the 2nd-4th arcs were. But I did like the conclusion of the droid squad arc, if only because it had some comedy stuff in it (the one droid not being able to get over the doorway was cool) and little moments like impending doom of the bomb-ship heading towards the unsuspecting Jedi, and even the explosion itself was very perfectly done. And I kinda dug the frog guy, just because the vocal performance was so out there. This is an example of how many different styles of stories can be told in this world. The Mandelore arc was awesome. I'm gonna go ahead and say this is my favourite character that Jon Favreau has ever played, and he does so with relish. I liked seeing the fall of the peace-loving mandelorian civilization, which you kinda had the feeling was going to eventually turn back into the bounty-loving mercs that the EU protrayed them as, so this is their tragic fall. The Vizla vs. Maul stuff was really awesome, so many little beats throughout with the repeated betrayals and screw jobs from each of them, culminating in their showdown. But they saved the best for last, even though you could call foul on a Dues Ex Sidious but it was too damn cool to complain about. This was Ian Abercromie's last performance as Palpatine and not only that he got to go out on in full-on Darth Sidious mode which is an absolutely fantastic final bit of business to play. Anybody notice next time you see Palpy it was a pan-up from the funeral in the next arc? I thought that was their shout-out to Abercromie The last arc was some of the best stuff the series ever did, great to watch all in one day. One of my favourite moments from the start of the arc was when they were researching the bomb and it was laid out in a backwards hologram, very creepy, very cool. The style of the arcs kind of hinted towards what if "the underworld" TV show coulda been, but it was the most maturity that Ashoka had basically over the course of the entire series. And I loved how things just Kept. Going. Wrong. for her, as the screws began to tighten and her world crumbled around her. And they flat-out did a "Fugitive!" reference! The reveal of her friend as the traitor I thought was cool but even without going on the boards I expected some of the more continuity minded fans would get in a tizzy, but it was a neat twist, the fight she had with Anakin was solid and he even got to indulge in some Darth Vader choking style (very quickly, nobody noticed, heh.) It really all pays off in the final moments when Ashoka decides to leave the order, the acting was great and the character animation all probably added up to some of the most moving things the show has ever done. Even the classically painted sky background of Ashoka's final goodbye to Anakin worked in an artistically abstract way. If we never see her again, this is a great end. Hell, if we never see the SHOW again, this is also a great end. So overall on this season, I enjoyed how they continue to tonally experiment between arcs, and once they kept a tone, wildly diverging in between arcs it may be, they kept to it. The show is a fun little twisty type of experiment, taking what is at the heart of Star Wars, to take genres and toss them altogether, but in Clone Wars, each arc has it's own deeper exploration of the tonal styles that can all be applied to a Star Wars story. Who needs spin-off films, we have our own little wacky film series going on here. Which is why I like to watch it all at once instead of week to week, you get to get the distinct feel in each arc.
