Now, before you get mad, hear me out. I'm of very mixed mind on TCW coming back for another season. Much as I like the show, I think maybe it's for the best that it not. I have a couple of reasons for this. First, having watched the Season 5 closer, I think the show really has made its full arc. We started it with Ahsoka being introduced; we leave it with her departure. If TCW is her story, it is now complete, at least as far as her time as a Jedi is concerned. We're also visibly reaching the end of the Clone Wars and approaching RoTS. I think it may be that this show really has done everything it set out to do, and everything it can do. As for the matter of the missing Clovis arc, well, that could be re-edited into a movie, either for theatrical release or for DVD. Even that would be some symmetry - start on a movie, end on a movie. Second, that was a great arc. I want this show to go out on top. I don't want it to end up like The Simpsons - a show that was brilliant years ago, but that simply ran out of good ideas and coasts on its former glory. Maybe this arc was a good metaphor for the show itself - perhaps it's time to let go of our attachments and walk away. Maybe that's why they chose to end it on this arc. And, well, let's face facts - this show has always been uneven. It's been hit and miss, with the caveat that when it hit, it hit hard. Certainly, we got some hard hits this year - this last arc being the hardest of them. But the miss-to-hit ratio was noticeably unencouraging this season. This makes me believe that the show really is beginning to run out of creative gas. The adage is as old as show biz - always leave 'em wanting more. I have a feeling that this would be a good time to heed that advice. Third, and maybe most importantly, I get the distinct impression that Disney wants to clean house and set its sights on the future, not the past - both in terms of the story itself and in terms of wanting to tell their own stories. George Lucas had 35 years to tell the Star Wars stories he wanted to tell, and for better or worse, he did. If Disney thinks that now it's time to lay those aside, and for there to be new Star Wars stories that new people want to tell, well, I can't say I blame them. In fact, I think that really is where their head ought to be right now. So, as much as I like this show, I think maybe it is for the best if it ends here. I figure I'll get some disagreement on this point. Comment as you see fit - but I felt that I had to say it.
