    "Only through fire is a strong sword forged."

    Anakin Skywalker and the rest of his Jedi team have been overrun by the Separatist surprise attacks led by Riff Tamson while Prince Lee-Char and Ahsoka must evade capture on their own. Unable to summon more Republic aid, Yoda calls upon the help of the powerful and amphibious Gungan Grand Army, but whether they will be enough to stop the Separatist siege is uncertain. An incensed Tamson doubles his efforts in tracking down Prince Lee-Char, unleashing the reinforcements given to him by Count Dooku in an assault that churns the oceans.

    "Powerful" gungan army didn't match for army of b1s[face_plain] - this arc is no doubt going to end stupid cute cyrupy peace-agreement Padmé and Ahsoka arrange between Mon Cals and quarren and there is no Tikkes, no excitement and no logic:rolleyes: .....

    That's my guess - And they have no Tikkes because separatist council is no more- while it is in films (maybe it's replaced by something to Blu-ray :rolleyes: ) it is now erased from TCW-continuity from some odd reason and it's sith alone with Lott Dod and few other republic senators causing the war and Padmé making peace with her separatist friends...... what the heck.... what kind of war is like that?

    Yes i cannot rant more without seeing it.... but i rather watch good episodes- idea of bringing Padmé to Mon Cala (or whatever) is bad enough and then gungans and entire sharkman-character..... this arc just cannot be good, but may it is not as bad as i think right now- it may not have that ending...

    Who am i kidding? That's the stupid predictable ending anyway- Padmé having stupid speech to Mon Calamari's (stupid) new king and blah blah something foolish and lame...

    Now that has no logic. How can you rant about something you haven't seen yet? If you think it's going to be so bad, why bother watching it anyway?

    Are those the actual fortune cookies in the quotes? This one and the last one actually seem pretty good.

    ^I thought it was lame and cringe-worthy[face_talk_hand] - one of the worst fortune cookies yet..... even more stupid is the fact this is water episode:p

    Why bother quoting me? [face_tired]

    I will watch it because i just cannot believe it is so bad as it looks- It may not be, i cannot judge episodes without seeing them

    I'm just now sharing my negative expectations- if it really is all crap and all following arcs are too -then i may stop watching this show- but i think i don't need your judgement anyway...

    I watch what i want- maybe i want to bash this so much that i watch it only to bash this- but that's not your place to tell me not to do so anyway....

    Man, these fortune cookies are fantastic! But a hundred credits say they're ripped off from somewhere else. :p

    "forging a sword" is out of place expression in SW where swords are mainly lightsabers anyway..... but fortune cookie may end up to be the best thing in the episode.....

    Aren't there regular swords in that fictional Galaxy? Couldn't you also 'forge' the metal parts of a lightsaber's hilt? Its a nice expression.

    Jesus Christ, Swash-what are you psychic? "I can see the ending now...". Just take a deep breath.

    Of course, but that's what you are doing. Judging episodes without seeing them.

    And when have I ever told you to not do anything? You may write whatever you want, but the hipocrisy remains.

    It's nice to see that one of TCW biggest defenders has now joined those of us who have little hope for this series. Eventually we'll suck you all in. Once you start down the dark path forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.:p

    Since apparently you find it difficult to accept others' opinions, you have to actually think about how this line fits with the story.

    TCW's fortune cookies are generally irrelevant at times.

    After thinking awhile, I've found there's one thing the writers failed to acknowledge...

    That's not the context 'fire' is being use in, in the fortune cookie there. It sounds rather ominous really. And explosions can sorta happen under water. See UNDEX.
