    I missed the episode, dang it. They said they were going to show 2 back to back Ben 10 episode so I figured I would wait an hour for Star Wars. Turns out I missed the show entirely.

    So what's the deal with the Obi v.s Grievous fight, that's all I care about. Did he have a solid showing?

    It was relatively short, but Grievous won that one hands down IMO.
    Kenobi ended up retreating, setting the ship to self destruct and escaping in a pod.

    I really enjoyed this episode, I'm glad we finally got some space action for once, as well.

    Its very short and its really weak how it was concluded but Grievous had the upper hand. Cody pretty much bailed Kenobi out of the fight.

    Perhaps a certain Neimoidian businessman? :D Hopefully it will be mentioned in the next episode.

    Classy wooden one.

    The whole Battle with Grievous and the music used when Obi-Wan escaped was like from the Malevolence arc.

    BTW: What is that gigantic thing behind Hondo's base and where was it in the newest episode?!


    NICE... I like your thinking.

    Is it just me or do they keep having mostly 3 vs 3 cap ship battles?

    I didn't count, but it looked like there were more than 3 CIS capital ships. I'll have to watch again...

    I'm pretty sure there are way more than 3 on both sides. More on this tonight. I'll watch this one again. =D

    There were only 3 Venators that I remember, but I saw a few Arquitens-class light cruisers and maybe a Consular-class cruiser or 2. It depends on what you want to count as a capital ship I guess. I'm pretty sure the seps had at least 4 full size cruisers though.

    Heh, I think I misread to word 'cap' like a number cap. This time I'll blame the cough meds. -.-; I'll just go chill in my lonely corner for a while.

    According to the hologram in the bridge, there were 3 republic cruisers with several smaller support craft. The Separatists had the advantage - 3 Banking Clan Frigates, 1 Commerce Guild Destroyer and 1 Federation Cruiser.

    Lots to like in this episode, though I feel this was the weakest part of the arc so far.

    The circus was a bit to childish for me, and the kids audition felt to modern in presentation.

    Loved drunk Hondo though, when he pointed his fingers at one of his buddies, and the guy pointed back, I almost fell over laughing. Such a great moment.

    I actually really like Obi-Wans message to Grivous, he basically gave him the finger verbally.

    Nice to have a space battle again, though we didn’t get that much of it. Really disappointing that we haven’t had a space battle episode since s2 (Plan of Dissent doesn’t count, too short).

    7/10

    Clones lose cause of math! A Kenobi pulled a Grievous on Grievous... :D

    5 is bigger than 3. Fleet smaller in size does make one's chances of failure a lot bigger. [face_laugh]
    No amount of Clone feelings could have saved the Republic in this battle.

    Numbers will defeat the Jedi and Clones...

    They became over confident after taking out entire CIS blockades in Season's 1 & 2 previous battles. :D

    -from her corner.- "Rookies" and "ARC Troopers" to name a coupe says hello. Numbers do not win a battle. You got lucky this time punk. =b

    "Massacre", "Supply Lines" beg to differ. Numbers win battles!

    What is this, Lit? We're debating numbers? Do you know how many people have been banned for that in the other forums?:p

    All this because in my head 'cap' registers as a cap on numbers and I misread a post. Oh, and cough meds. Yeah staying in my corner stage right. Seerow out!

    Liked the episode. Still not wild about the saturation of 4-parters this season. Loved the first episode of this arc. Second was OK. This one was better. But now I'm ready to move onto something else and not follow these kids for another episode.

    It would be really cool if they had 2 or 3 stories going on at the same time in different arcs and would switch between them each week.
