    The slightest difference I found in Escape From Kadavo, was that the beginning with Obi Wan and Rex and the togruta's seemed slightly longer, or different and more violent shots were used with electro whippings.

    Can't say I saw any difference - I watched the Umbara and Kadavo arcs last night. I have to say Umbara benefits from running in a row - only end credits and roll into the next episode.

    I'm understanding now why the director's cut aren't advertised on the boxes. Seems to me atleast with Carnage and "Escape from Kadavo" episodes were either shorted for run time or CN did a little censoring when they aired, that's all.

    Verizon Cable just picked up Cartoon Network in HD. Yaaaaayyyyyyyy!

    Finally! It's been way over a year since I've watched a new Clone Wars episode in HD.

    I don't see what it has to do with Season 4 on DVD & Blu-ray, though.

    Picked this up in Blu-ray last night after work..Watched all the way up to the Umbara arc. Besides the dumb droid episodes it's been a blast so far.

    Wanted poster is cool, just wish they would've done something cooler for the main slip out thing. The first set had the poster art look, the second had the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and the third had the Savage Opress episode screening poster. This has a very bland logo with character stills.

    Welp, this set was great until it started skipping. I have no more firmware updates, so it looks like it's time to get a new player.:(

    I hope someone of you who have watched the Director's Cut episodes will sooner or later post a list of the added/extended scenes inserted into the episodes.

    Do you have the SW Trilogy Blu Ray's? I had a lot of problems with those freezing and skipping till I got a new BR player.

    I was watching Brothers last night and I noticed a slight difference in the scene where Savage sees spider Maul for the first time. In the original cut, there was an awkward shot of spider Maul jumping on Savage and getting right in his face. The shot was awkward because Maul's head was about three times as large as Savage's head. That shot is gone in the bluray version and a slightly different scene has been inserted.

    Honestly, I've yet to see any real differences although I still have one arc to go (the Maul, Ventress arc)

    Um, yeah. But I was lucky. The only issue I had with those Blu Rays were 2 scenes in Episode II, Anakin's mother, and Yoda in the Clone Wars. I did a little research online, and it was a fairly common problem. The firmware update didn't help it, but I could live with it. This, Season 4 of TCW, being skippy here and there, rather inconsistently, I cannot live with.

    I wouldn't get too excited. This isn't a radical reinvention like Blade Runner or adding a tonne of extra footage like LOTR. They're "director's cuts" only in the very loosest sense.

    I've only watched Carnage so far. Far as I can tell in Carnage its just a slightly extended version of the Hunt For Krell as they call it with a few more violent shots added of Krell cutting up clones. Its nothing major at all. I'll tackle the Slave arc finally on Sunday.

    The differences on the special release of that arc were minimal, I doubt they will be altered again. Speaking of said arc, I love the way SO's lightsaber hums when he wastes the mechno Jawas. Best saber sound, ever... IMO.

    Is it me, or do the Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blurays seem sort of lacking in quality? I just got them from Amazon (yeah, I love buying crap I already own) and popped them into the PS3 as soon as I could. Boy, was I disappointed. There really isn't that much of a difference between DVD and Bluray, is there?

    Most of the difference is in stray hairs or in the gleam of the eye. Little tiny things. Some people even prefer DVD. I think it's just a matter of preference really. I would have settled for a DVD if it were available, and had I not prepared by buying a blu ray player 2 years in advance. I wonder how many people actually made the switch because someday the next edition of Star Wars would be released.

    What kind of TV are you watching these on (size, resolution, etc)? Are you using an HDMI cable? There's a huge difference depending on your setup.

    Blow those up full size and I'm pretty sure you'll agree that there IS that much of a difference between the 2 formats. The Star Wars Blu-Rays aren't the best examples of how good an upgrade can be (see the new Jaws Blu-Ray instead) but they are a solid upgrade.
