    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) 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.

    Well yeah, that would have been infinitely preferable. However seeing as that's clearly not going to happen, it might make this coming episode more enjoyable if you dwell less on the culprit and more on their impact.

    There is zero chance I'm going to enjoy the resolution to this arc. I have no interest in lying to myself by saying they have some magic fix in the works.

    That actually would have been better. She could have gotten pissed off at the Council for ****ing with Anakin's emotions during the Hardeen arc. "Oh so you want to bury a Jedi, huh? How about burying several?"

    Sadly I'm only half-joking here, that's how absurd this whole scenario is.

    I've decided my review next week will need to be MST style; if I have to do a serious review, you all won't be able to read it unless you're fluent in Starred-Out Obscenity.

    It would've been much more effective to actually have it as a political attack- it would justify the entire "remove the Jedi from the war" idea because they were so desperate to get involved with the investigation. This may not make sense, does it need to?

    I'm personally doing my review in Swedish. You ask why? I say why not? With that logic I'm certain I'm a TCW writer

    I honestly can't stand the constant bashing of Dave Filoni for every mistake the series makes, or the strange insistence that he has some bias towards Ahsoka.

    Believe it or not, there is a large team of people working on this show. There are about eight regular writers that have just as much say in these storylines, and from what we've gathered, Lucas is behind a fair amount of the creative decisions for this show.

    Simply, slapping Filoni's name on every complaint for the series shows nothing other than a lack of understanding for how the production for the show works. There is a vast creative process, that Filoni oversees but doesn't create.

    As for Ahsoka, hasn't it been confirmed that she is George's creation?

    KeltheDor That tends to happen when you're the public face of the project. Fact is, we don't really know exactly who decided to screw up Barriss Offee, but since Filoni has filmed an implicitly provocative (whether intentional or not) commentary, he's going to be the one who gets flack.

    nah, Filoni keeps cool. Dave gets honored when we give him all the fault. Even if there is Lucas running around. :p

    Its all YOUR FAULT, Dave! [face_clown][:D]

    So am I, I apologize for over generalizing. Let me rephrase that by saying that nobody who is currently mad about Barriss's involvement is going to be satisfied :)

    Sadly that's probably accurate.

    But Filoni doesn't care.

    Same here.

    TCW has rejuvenated my love for Star Wars. I hope the show lasts a while more.

    Don't try and imply that this was an inevitable situation for Barriss, the direction she was heading. You devised this situation, with full knowledge that this doesn't fit with previous continuity, or the character at all. She's a Jedi against violence, a healer.

    WTF.

    I expect there'll be a reason to it, forced, controlled, tricked somehow.
    I'd like to think Filoni isn't that stupid to go and say that if it's as black and white as that sounds.

    What I noticed about the commentary (not sure if this has already been brought up cuz I'm avoiding most of the forum) is that Filoni has on the same hat and is sitting in front of the same screenshot of Lawless of every commentary of this arc. So the commentaries were all recorded at the same time well in advance of this arc showing which means that Filoni saw that the culprit was going to be blatantly obvious by the time Catch a Jedi aired?
