    The biggest issue I have with this (and its not bad the way you write it) is that it makes A LOT of character assumptions. I personally don't agree with or make the leap of Jedi being "cold and emotionless" especially not with Barriss and Luminara. In their way they are a contrast to the out of control emotionalism that is Anakin Skywalker. Knowing it or not Luminara spoke to Skywalker's issue at the end of that arc which was also part of the reason he was given a Padawan in the first place.

    Master_Gallia,
    I reached that assumption by watching the episodes and listening carefully. I know its tough to think about. I wasn't alone in reaching that conclusion. I watched the episodes with a friend who also felt that Barriss seemed cold and vicious in "Brain Invaders', more so than either of us realized. I don't recall the Geonosis arc explaining why Anakin was given a Padawan, that was more the Padawan Lost arc if any that came the closes. Its in "Weapons Factory" the Luminara has a convo with Anakin while believing her Padawan is dead. She has a brief emotional reaction after the factory collapses in the explosion. Then after that as Anakin is trying to mount a rescue trys to convince Anakin to let it go. If Anakin had let it go Barriss and Ahsoka would have died. I know Jedi are trained against attachment but its messed up that they lose hope so quick. Think of how that would feel if Luminara tried to explain that to Barriss? Honestly the Jedi existence always seems like it would be a lonely one to me.

    QuangoFett,
    I'm one of those people who liked "Evil Plans". I liked the mundane shopping trip that turned into a big deal. Its like an episode of "Rocko's Modern Life". However I would sacrifice it and the droid arc from season 4 and before I gave Barriss and Ahsoka episodes I'd extend eps like Shadow Warrior and A Friend in Need into two parters atleast. With the issue with lack of Barriss and Ahsoka friendship development all that might have been needed would be to team Barriss and Ahsoka up in episodes that exist the "The Academy" and the Young Jedi arc.c

    What if they saw your post and changed the culprit at the last minute?

    It's all your fault. [face_frustrated]

    Nah. If Filoni got his ideas from our posts, I can think of several episodes that would have been a lot better and several that would have not existed at all.

    I'm pretty sure I remember a website/critic complaining about Jedi Crash for the oversexualisation.

    EDIT: I see K'Kruhk doesn't mind. :p

    It's great to see that Yoda appreciates a nice rack when he sees one.

    Boob talk doesn't bother me.

    Maybe because I'm an attention whore and I enjoyed the five or so (unexpected) posts about my rack a couple of months ago in the YJCC Post a Picture of Yourself thread.

    I'd worry about the straight guy who didn't notice Aayla's outfit.

    But yeah, some shirtless male Jedi would be nice.

    And one reason you won't see any pictures of me (I put Aayla to shame, though she blows me out of the water for "sexy") - knowing the YJCC...

    I like her because she's one of the few TCW characters whose voice I can imitate perfectly.
