  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.

    7, 10, 9. Two out of three are high marks so far. And yes, an anti-climate ending will really hurt this arc for me. Arcs like this one are kinda like movies cut in 4 parts, IMO.

    Video clips are not allowed in this thread. Season 5 spoiler thread for those, bro.

    I would like to know how the CIS managed to get ahold of an entire Star Destroyer and sabotage it like that. Hopefully (tiny flame of hope) TCW will touch on this.

    Maybe Obi-Wan pulled his "I put a bomb on the Star Destroyer!" trick again on Grievous and Grievous just... deactivated the bomb.

    LOL, a bomb was on it the whole time.

    Great idea. Maybe its could even be the one Even Piell was captured on. But wouldn't the Republic keep a record of destroyed, lost, or presumed destroyed ships?

    Are you still going on about 7 being a low score? That's not a low score. It's not just above average, it is a good score. For god's sake I hate rating inflation.

    I did not know that clips from the official guide are considered spoiler...

    I grade the episodes like a consumer grading a product or service. Consumers are harsh. 6-7 is neutral, neutral won't win any awards.

    The posting of the clips isn't allowed in the episode threads. They can be discussed here since they are official info.

    So clips are not allowed, but discussing the things in the clip from the guide is ok to do?! Good to know, confusing, but good to know. I understand!

    Huh, so you're telling me that a 7/10 is a sign saying "don't watch this" and they are fully justified, while anytime someone grades an episode a 1 to a 4, you have people screaming for their heads and reasons as to why they gave such a low score?

    You people put too much stock in ratings anyways. The only reason I use them in the grading threads is because I have no alternative. Outside of them, do I ever grade episodes?

    So a 7 is considered being harsh. It's no wonder people on this board accuse people of giving 1/10s trolls.

    So, Gascon's stealing Admiral Ackbar's meme... I propose an epic fleet battle to settle the score.

    I think people get more set about folks who give both 1s and 10s then don't give any explanation as to why.

    I'm surprised we haven't heard that one before.

    I actually just went through all of the episodes and graded them for the first time - not for this thread, but because I have a non-star-wars-fan friend who hasn't seen any of TCW and is willing to start watching but is worrisome about certain things. He agreed that if I graded them, he'd be willing to give them a shot - starting with my higher grades. Obviously its all subjective but we have similar tastes so, yes I do see a purpose for grading episodes - Especially since I feel like a lot of Star Wars fans want to share their love of SW with other people.

    This was the best part of Point of No Return's trailer by far IMO.
