    That clip of the space battle and Grevious is awesome, truly awesome. That's The Clone Wars. So what do the writers do? They shove it in the Young Jedi arc. :oops:

    I enjoyed the clip that had Grievous on it, it was nice to see him take out some clones himself instead of just relying on droids to take them out like in Arc Troopers for instance. I am not looking forward to the duel with him and Obi Wan that much, hopefully this will be the last one they have in the show. I was also pleased to see Separatist Gunships again.

    I'll be happy when this arc is over. Little did you know, but that fifteen seconds of clone slaughter will be Grievous's only success for the next twenty episodes.

    That clip is one of the best things I've seen in a couple of years.

    Looks like this is gonna be a great episode, but that clip with Grievous boarding the cruiser and the ensuing fight honestly feels like it is from another episode. And in the opening post, the screenshot shows the Doctor still dismantled; wasn't Zat going to put him together?

    It's kind of like drinking diet soda pop. At first, you cringe at the taste of aspartame, but by the end, your brain convinces you that you like it, and you don't even want to go back to drinking regular soda.

    Well it's also sort of like drinking too much of something. At first, you like to drink it, but by the end of the 10th glass, you want to throw up. :p

    Too much Obi-Wan vs Grievous.

    His head was attached to his body in the preview clip, IIRC.

    I haven't watched the first preview clip yet so you might be right.

    The metallic clanging (is that even a word) of Grievous' moment never gets old.

    I know quite a few David Tennant fans who are tuning in to the show just for him and will be disappointed if he doesn't have much of a role in the following two episodes. I expect he won't do much or appear much because of the other elements in the next episode they have to deal with. Especially the whole side-plot with Obi-Wan. I imagine he's on his way to rescue the Younglings and Ahsoka and of course Grievous jumps on him who is also heading to the same location.

    This arc has been so boring so far, so at least that clip promises some action and might make more sense than shoehorning Hondo into the arc like the last one did. But as others have said... Obi-Wan vs. Grievous again before ROTS... just stop already. :rolleyes:

    This is like Anakin vs Dooku all over again... only difference is, is that Obi-Wan has duelled Grievous twice as opposed to probably double that for Anakin and Dooku. The last time for Obi-Wan and Grievous was in Season 2.

    I agree. Anakin vs. Dooku has been overdone too, and ideally would never have happened at all in TCW.

    That clip isn't so much Grievous vs. Obi-wan, as feeling like one big battle sequence which makes it look much cooler to me.

    And no matter what shape Huyang is, Zat won't have time to fix him up more if he's got to worry about the engine blowing up.

    I heard that this is the only episode which Grievous is a part of this season, hopefully that doesn't mean that they'll go way of the entire season (like the Onderon arc which had nothing to do with the clone wars)
    I really enjoy this young jedi arc so far and that we're going to have Obi vs Grievous again, Cody and a hole bunch of droids oh and of course Hondo this episode is so far looking to become my second favorite of this season (you guessed it Revival is the best of season in my book)
    [IMG] Also look how nice the animation has become and how wild Obi's front hair looks in this shot from the preview :)

    Grievous appears in A Necessary Bond, cause he attack Florrum in that episode
