I didn't like how slug-man seemed to come to respect the droids by the end of Secret Weapons, only for that to be forgotten in opening seconds of this episode... Only for him to regain a feeling of respect for WAC by the end... Which will probably be forgotten by the beginning of the next episode. It would be one thing if these episodes were years apart. But they all would have been written around the same time for the same season, and there's still such blatant lack of continuity in Gascon's growth? No 50 First Dates homages. Oh, and again. WAC sucks . I didn't think the existentialism was particularly deep, and as someone else pointed out - it might not be the best thing to bring up in 22 minute episode for kids, because then you turn around and have to explain the concept through forced dialogue, and in the end I think that ends up with a weaker result than if they had just avoided the concept all together. You can tell a 22 minute story of a guy wandering aimlessly through the desert and giving up hope, without delving into how the droids and biological beings are similar/different. Meanwhile the four astromech droids just sort of go do their own thing arbitrarily with R2 going out of his way to be a jerk. I figure they were trying to draw a link to the beginning of ANH, but that made more sense than R2 deciding to just go straight and being awkwardly insistent upon it and ditching WAC and Gascon.
