  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Lux Bonteri turns out to be just like Joffrey Baratheon.

    I've always been mostly apathetic about Lux till this episode...I hope the Disney-romance-sub-plot doesn't lead to me hating the character.

    Lux will get shot in this arc. In a firefight, Ahsoka will abandon her duties to help Lux. Lux will be okay, but Ahsoka will realize her attachment interfered with the plan and her attachment to Lux will not help her in commanding a unit. She also learns more about attachment from Anakin after he talks to her about her obvious crush on Lux. Ahsoka dumps Lux, sorrowfully telling him she has her chosen path. Lux cries in Steela's arm as they fly away and later make many immoral children together. /end arc

    Random thought but, I'm still sad that the only thing I'm looking forward to so far is Gregor.. :p

    That actually isn't nearly as bad as some alternatives I'd considered...I REALLY hope it's nothing worse than that.

    Lux: "You'll pay for killing my uncle, clone!"

    Ahsoka: "Uncle? I thought your fath... oh."

    I prefer the printed versions of both of those as well. With the ROTS novelization, I can actually read half of it plus several pages at the end. Whereas with the film, I can only watch the first 45 minutes.

    And the AOTC novelization, like the ROTS novelization, does a much better job of getting inside the characters' heads than the film could. Some of the arguments made against aspects of AOTC as a film, could not be made against it as a novel.

    That's just the thing. this is the Clone Wars, not the Galactic Revolt.

    I want to see the clones get recognition, not random guerrillas.

    The clones get recognition all the time. They arguably had the best story last season.

    I think that Onderon and Umbara nicely balance each other- while Umbara had clones fighting non-droids,Onderon has droids fighting non-clones. Both arcs still have cameo of both clones and droids. Still we need to see more clones vs. droids action in the future. We haven't really seen a big battle with simply clones fighting droids.

    This is a civil war, it's nice to see more then droids and clones.

    That's what the Geonosis arc and to an extent Ryloth and "ARC Troopers" are. We've seen big clones vs battle droids battles. We saw four episodes of badass clones last season. Just not clones vs. battle droids much since "ARC Troopers". We need to see more of that however it seems TCW's scope is actually the time period of The Clone Wars and what happened in that time period, war, and all kinds of stuff happening alongside that. The show is not called Star Wars: The Clones, although that would be sweet. Anakin is the protagonist and Ahsoka is the deuteragonist. TCW TV show will never stray far from their journey within the scope of what happened to them in The Clone Wars time period. I wish they would. Still it would be boring if TCW were clones and droids in big battles all the time, that's just as much a formula (or part of the formula?) as the monster of the week bullcrap the show often follows.

    You are actually quite right. The last time we saw just clones vs droids was in TCW movie and that was awesome...

    As much as I would like to agree. Droids vs Clones is not that common.
    As we all know on Geonosis the Clones were not mainly fighting the droids but the geonosians. We did not see any Droids in Landing at Point Rain and the Zombie episode Legacy of Terror we mainly had the battle droids carry stuff and not fight clones.
    On Onderon I am happy that the main trio of goofs are leaving cause we could focus and develop and care for the other members of this story like Saw and Steela and Lux... Without Anakin or Rex, the arc might actually have some good character that I could root for and not make me vomit every time Anakin forces another line from the OT like it some disgusting fart.
    I have hope that with Anakin leaving, Saw and Lux with have the chance to get more development that Kit Fisto, Lee-Char or Ackbar did not manage to get cause of the annoying Chosen One eating up the spotlight. And in this arc thank to the lack of Anakin or Rex, we get other characters like Saw who are going to be badasses...


    Back in S4's weak Umbara arc, such awesome actions were done by Rex, now they are done by Saw.

    The battle above the Lurmen planet was fairly big.

    We need to see a professional mercenary company fighting either droids or clones.

    Honestly, I could see Mercenaries but you would only use them for a special mission and most likely the Seperatist would hire them considering when the Republic needs a specialty squad they can send a team of Jedi.

    I could see the Republic using them if a crisis develops suddenly. By the way how awesome would it be to see the Nova Guard in action.

    Wait... there was no battle above Maridun.

    The sky battle was over Quell.

    Battle above Quell was not big and it was naval battle not battle on the surface of the world. Malastare had the bomb and the beast, Geonosis had mainly geonosians and Mon Cala was aquatic battle with more locals than clones and droids. We've seen numerous small skirmishes and little flashes of some big battles (Like Ima-Gun-Di's sacrifice, newsreel in Zillo Beast) but not really a big battle that would be in the focus of some arc.
