Well, I survived. Jar Jar kissing the sea monster was a bit much, but all's well that ends well, as they say. Yeah, Lucas intended the Jedi to be seen as schmucks. Sure. Interesting that the Jedi-as-schmucks theory, instead of simply remaining in the realm of fan opinion, needs Lucas' fictionalized support... On the clone issue, there is no discrepancy between the clones in the PT and the clones in TCW. It's an assertion that has been challenged before, and it failed due to lack of proof. Commander Cody is the same "preprogrammed terror" who gave Obi-Wan back his lightsaber. Odd, that. But wait... there's more... And the discrepancy between AOTC and TCW is...........? **crickets** Nothing. But we've been through this before, haven't we? You can keep stating incessantly that the portrayal of the Clone Wars has changed, but in fact it hasn't. They're just words. There's no actual substance or evidence backing them up. Merely a baseless rant.
