    I'm not watching any new trailers since the season has started so I really have no idea what is going to happen in the climax episode of the arc, but I'm hoping for something CLIMACTIC.

    What did Jar Jar say after he greeted Anakin during the battle?

    "Mesa can't hear so good since mesa (unintelligible)"



    Anyways, pretty decent two episodes- the underwater action was quite awesome (particularly the vortex caused by the octocraft), though the political elements were extremely compressed (to the point where the new Boss changing his mind two seconds later was comically awful).

    Also- "Mon Cala"? Were those two syllables really that time consuming? :p

    Yeah, they really cut all politics to an absolute bare minimum in these episodes. :_|

    Sounded like "submersed" with a couple extra jibberish syllables tacked on at the end.

    Ah, I've been wondering about that one as well.

    It's Padmé's own fault- who told her to go to Dac?:p

    I have seen the season premiere and I am not disappointed at all. The two episodes were entertaining. There was a good intrigue and an interesting background plan by the Separatist.

    But, I found a little bit hard to explain why the Jedi and clones for instance (except the Mon Cal whose are the locals) could move so easily that far under the water, let alone the lack of bubles when they move. Well, this is Star Wars so there is probably an explanation in-universe about that.

    The visual was great by the way. It is certainly not simple in a visual way to create episodes basiclly just under the water. I was satisfied by what I saw.

    Well, I globally appreciate the premiere but, without being to hard, I think they can raise the barre even higher.

    It bothered me that the lightsabers reacted as if they were just swinging through the air. No sizzling, no bubbles, nada.

    Lazy animation, if you ask me. They should be very much aware of this issue.

    I hadn't thought of that, that would have been pretty sweet.

    So, who's this Darth_Tarkus imposter anyway.

    I had some of the same issues. I would have been happy to see the Mon Cal, Quarren, Sharkmen zooming around underwater, but the humans with flippers didn't make sense to me. I looked at their gear and it seemed like all they had were those flippers and oxygen tanks.

    Pretty entertaining two episodes, but it was SO DARK (although I was watching it on my computer from the Star Wars website) that many times I couldn't see what was going on.

    You weren't here for that? [face_laugh] It's okay, GG's been here the whole time and he apparently hasn't noticed the change yet.

    Nothing's wrong with the flippers, it just seemed like they were moving way too fast and like they should have jets strapped to their backs or something.

    Yeah, yeah, nice. I'm not buying it. Tarkus was a buddy of mine and I don't take kindly to this. [face_not_talking]
    CAN WE GET A BANHAMMER IN HERE! [face_skull]

    Pretty solid stuff so far. If he's decently articulated, I'll definitely buy a Riff SharkMan figure!

    Riff was pretty awesome, but I liked Osi Sobeck better.

    ^I've learned to like Sobeck but still both fellows served their purpose, they are just not interesting enough IMO to be in more than 1 arc.....

    I kind of hope that they bring back Mar Tuuk and the others, that would be neat.

    Maybe we'll get some badguys back in the prison break episode.

    ^Too good to be true- they've confirmed only bounty hunters..... if they have Tikkes in prison and claim he was captured during the battle we see in Genndy's show- then i forgive Filoni:p
