    6pm, repeated 9pm.

    Cool.

    There's a whole forum for its discussion too - though as there looks to be a 2 day lag between US airing & NZ airing, I dare say discussion will be done to death by the time we can contribute...

    Damn, I would have just moved back home and the olds only have stupid UHF. :( Might have to convince them to upgrade or get someone to tape them.

    I don't have Sky but I have Hyperspace, so I can see it the same time as US, although smaller size - hope they put it out on dvd some time :)

    I'm sure it will be put onto DVD at some stage in the future.

    Hmm. I might even be at work for that. I wonder if our work Sky can receive that channel. [face_mischief]

    At any rate, the new Clone Wars full site has just gone up at cartoon network's site, with awesome bios, ships, planets, the game, images, spaces for episode guides blah blah blah...

    Well worth checking out (you'll need flash & shockwave though).

    cartoonnetwork.com/clonewars

    It also indicates the episodes may be on the cartoon network site the day after they air in the USA (though I wouldn't be surprised if it's tied in with starwars.com's hyperspace pay service).

    I'm loving the games. Unfortunately, I can't get Obi-Wan vs Durge to load ... I get an 'out of memory loading member1 of Playercast7' error. I think the ram count on this computer is too low.

    According to the update on starwars.com today, they'll be available on Hyperspace 20mins after going to air in the states.

    I figured out that corresponds to Sat, Nov 8, 2:20pm for us (for the first episode).

    OK update on sky times, premieres @ 630 pm 10 november, again at 930 pm every weeknight and all episodes are shown again on saturday and sunday.
    I have hyperspace too but will you be able to download them? or are they streaming/ viewing only?

    You can download anything that's online, but it's sometimes more tricky than "right click -> save as" ;)

    I just looked in Novembers Saturn magazine, and it has a write up for the Clone Wars in the "kids" section. [face_laugh]

    Well its not an adult cartoon. It's audience, I'd guess, is kids and kids at heart.

    Youagain - Hyperspace recently started accepting cheques. I'm not sure if they'll accept them from overseas, though.

    I'm not sure if I'm even allowed to talk about this here, but ...

    as someone with neither Jyperspace nor Sky TV, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to either tape these episodes for me, or, if you're a hyperspace member, download and make copies for me.

    PM me and maybe we can work something out ...

    I'd like to help, but I have no recording device, and I'm not a hyperspace person.

    They'll probably appear on *cough* kazaa *cough* soon enough.

    I'm planning on taping it.... I'll see what I can do... although it may be better to have a back up as with my family who knows if the t.v will even be free.

    If you have a credit card, you can get 1 month of Hyperspace for, I think, US$3.95.

    The first 10 episodes are on in a 2 week block starting in a couple of days. The 2nd block of 10 starting in a month or two.

    You can even get a week's free trial once you enter your card details, so it may be possible to get 5 episodes on Hyperspace and cancel your subscription before your ~NZ$7 is charged...

    I loved Threepio 'catching' Anakin's cloak ... nice touch there. I think I'm one of the few who actually likes the fact that they're only three minutes ... it makes it a very fast, very tight narrative. Still, can't wait to see them all together.

    Because lightsabers post ep1 can work underwater

    Me and my friends at school had a week long dibate about this very issue

    Delete scence in ep1 obiwan fries his lightsaber int he swamp

    Ep5 gets snow in it int he wampa xcave and general hoth invorment

    ep5 luke submerges himself in the swamp with his lightsaber on his belt scenes after subest the lightsaber still works

    clone wars kit fisco uses his underwater

    this leads tot he conclusion that the jedi changed how they made lightsabers after ep1
