    I was channel surfing, and I recognized Samurai Jack, so I left it on, it was in the middle of the last fight or something, and they kept switching star wars music on and off from what I guess was their music! They played parts of Across The Stars and I believe Bounty Hunter Hot Pursuit. I couldn't believe it. The animation is alright, I don't mind much. I hope they're released on DVD though.

    I also recognized the star wars music at the end of the Samuri Jack episode. I thought maybe I was hearing things, guess not.

    Hmmm, most season consist of around 20eps and new seasons usually start almost a year after the last one started.

    I see it as 1 season with a 2 month break.

    Pardon me, but I have to vent somewhere.

    All the below quotes come from the E!Online article.

    Star Wars: Clone Wars, a series of animated shorts featuring the epic battles often mentioned but never seen in the Star Wars films, is being prepped for its fall premiere on the Cartoon Network.

    "Never seen"? Does the Battle of Geonosis ring any bells?

    Each Clone Wars adventure will run two-to-three minutes and focus on Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and their cohorts as they lead the Galactic Republic against evil armies of cloned troopers created by the Separatists.

    Unless this is some new development (like Spaartis), then they officially don't know what they're talking about. At this point, the armies aren't evil; they're with the Republic, fighting against the Separatists.

    "[The animated series] will be showing the majority of the Clone Wars." - Josh Griffin

    Last I heard, it was just covering the Battle of Muunilinst, just one of many battles in the Clone Wars. The majority of the Clone Wars will be covered in books and comics.

    "...it would have been great to see more of the Clone Wars on the big screen and less of Jar Jar," says TheForce.net's Scott Chitwood...

    That quote implies that saw part of the Clone Wars in AOTC, contradicting E's earlier statement. And Scott, great job telling those media folk what they want to hear. [face_plain]

    As much as I like TFN, I really do wonder about Josh and Scott.
    Maybe I'm looking at what they're saying wrong but I'm sure they're really giving Star Wars (more subtly GL) a negative slant because there isn't enough mindless battle scenes between two large factions going on.
    Plus how did we ever know that the CW was full of epic battles when we had one measly line from Kenobi to go off of lol.


    Anyway on a more general point, never trust E!Online with their reports on SW content, they don't know what they're talking about.

    "never trust E!Online with their reports on SW content, they don't know what they're talking about."

    not many people (mainsteam magazines) know what there talking about when it comes to star wars content.

    PEZman4, I agree with you. I no longer watch E! because they never report Star Wars news accurately or objectively.

    "Lucas-Raped-My-Childhood" whine-brigade seem to have misimagined this alleged, supposed "promise" that he made back in 1978 or something that all three of the prequels would focus upon the Clone Wars.

    Many of them seem to have concoted these vaporous, faerie-like apparitions out of the desire to have the films that they've written, directed, acted, and edited ten thousand times over since 1977 in their own minds realized...and if Lucas happens to deviate from those preconceptions just *one* scintilla, they go totally China Syndrome./>/>

    "Download" or "viewing"?

    "This November, starwars.com Hyperspace members will have the first online access to the Clone Wars microseries, along with member-exclusive behind-the-scenes features."

    That isn't much different than the one Hyperspace "trailer", which said members would have "first online availability" of the cartoons.

    So far, I think everything on Hyperspace has been downloadable, so hopefully it'll stay that way for the cartoon.

    I'm pretty sure it's downloadable if you have Quicktime Pro. Even if you don't, there is a way to download it.

    If you're using windows, goto "temporary internet files" after viewing the page and copy that file from that folder to your folder/desktop.

    Yeah, the DCS deleted scene was downloadable if you had Quicktime Pro (or through methods mentioned above), as opposed to other files TOS has had, such as the latter half of the AOTC Documenatries, which were almost impossible to view off your harddrive, even if you managed to download them.
