  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels 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.

    I kinda wish he'd do the hippo thing from Rocko's Modern Life. "HOW DARE YOU!!!!" and punt a couple of kids across the ship.

    yeah, was surprised to read that..some things, no matter how obvious, are better left unsaid. That's like him detailing when and how he'll introduce and consummate Order 66. We know it's coming.

    That isn't as bed as telling us Ahsoka is going to be fine until we get to the end of the show.

    true, true. Everything about the show's creator telling us such detail of the fate of arguably the show's most prominent character smells STINK OF IT *Jar Jar voice*

    Oh well. I still got Rex to worry about. lol. It does seem like something interesting will happen to Ahsoka in the season finale. In her last ForceCast interview AE practically invited herself back for an interview she was so excited to talk about it.

    I wonder if the new movie has any effect on the plans for these character's fates

    These characters will likely have their fates resolved by then although I guess you could use their fates as some kinda of foreshadowing or setup for the fate of characters in ep7. I don't think its likely there will be much crossover though with the exception of maybe some TCW planets and aliens being used or something like that.

    That should probably be in spoiler tags, for the few lucky souls who didn't read that article. :p

    Point taken. Went back and added spoiler tags so I edited several posts. Sorry.

    We should really get back to discussing this episode although that one was all my fault. x.x;

    I don't remember if I mentioned this, but I loved the ANH-style opening of the hatch.

    I'm wondering what these episodes mean for Anakin? Was he behind all the other Younglings when he joined the Order? It's an interesting thought. Even as the Chosen One, would he be able to assemble a lightsaber with the Force? You can also understand Yoda's reluctance better in TPM. There's more to Jedi training than a little lightsaber practice class. I guess when you skip all of that you would potentially get a loose canon like Anakin.

    That is one of the biggest reasons I am really enjoying this arc, it adds so much to the films and the Jedi Order itself.

    Agreed. This arc is going a nice job of exploring the mythos and the Jedi order in this time period. I can only imagine what would happen if kid Anakin was put into a room with Petrol. It must have been really tough. It goes to show how skilled and what a quick study Anakin actually must be.

    Did not like the droid as saber construction master. But he was cool otherwise.

    Bah... That little droid is the only reason I started to watch the show (and now I'm part way through season 2 from the beginning--and that's saying something because I associated it so much with the Prequels, which I don't like). Love me some David. The show actually has its moments. The Episode VII news combined with David's cameo were the two things that brought me back to the SW universe after a decade of being driven away from the fandom, feeling rather left out since I was an OT original trio fan and the PT and EU discussions/arguments really, really left me cold (I really hated the fan culture around that time--so far, this place seems a million times better than I remember it).
