  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.

    First of all, I liked this. My nitpicks/questions:

    1. How old were these younglings?
    2. If only the "best" of their group goes, what about the other younglings?
    3. I was surprised at their "flaws" (as Star Wars like to call 'em) being so blatant, still, even at what I was guessing to be pre-teen - especially Petro (I would think "selfishness" might be something the Jedi teachers would have already been working on with him for some time - same as "fear" and all that.)

    I do really like:
    1. They learn something
    2. Yoda's summation at the end

    To be serious, don't they go to something like a farm?

    Those that are top of their class get a field trip to Ilum. The rest take a field trip to Lotho Minor where Morley is their tour guide.

    Supposedly only those not chosen to be padawans go to Agri-Corps, nothing to do with "top of" or "middle of" or "bottom of" class.

    Even if she acts like one, I don't think it would be hard to argue that she shouldn't be made a Knight. IMO the only thing interesting about her now is how they'll get rid of her.

    According to the episode trivia.

    BALANCE SYMBOLIZED

    The symbols denoting the balance of the light side and dark side first seen in the realm of Mortis are visible in the temple entrance on Ilum. The markings that lined the halls of the Father's Monastery on Mortis are also found within the Ilum temple. Illustration by Pat Presley

    I had seen that, but I didn't see the credits so I didn't know about Christian Taylor writing. But it's not just the symbols, it was just, the entire tone had a Mortis-like feel to it.

    Ahsoka shouldn't even be considered for Knighthood yet, she's only been a Padawan for two years.

    Her master shouldn't have been considered for Padawanhood either... so.....

    Also, her buddies Obi-Wan and Plo Koon are on the Council. And we all know they don't play fair.

    For the trivia guide saying that all the crystals are colorless until the Jedi hold them, frankly they all look blue to me once the younglings grab them.
