    the character I feel sorriest for is the Geonosian queen...sitting in the dark popping out an egg every few seconds sounds pretty boring...and the heroes conventienly cave in the roof and crush a defenseless immobile pregnant woman who they do nothing to save....

    I would post a TV Tropes link making the ironic point that the more freaky-looking a character is, the more okay it is to be horrible to them, but then I'd have to go to TV Tropes, and I have things to do with the rest of my day.

    if the Geonosian queen was a gorgeous HUMAN pregnant woman, no matter how evil, with a nursery full of human infants, people would be horrified as the Jedi/Clones shot the roof down on them and ran off...but since she's part of a minority...cough...I mean just a "bug" with mere innocent baby eggs, nobody cares...the selectiveness of mammalian morality

    My feelings for the latest episode are mixed. I like how Nal Hutta was depcited, some of the Hutt designs were pretty good (I don't like Marlo, though), Quinlan's use of psychometry was a nice touch, and the fight between the Jedi and Bane was really cool. However, I don't like how Quinlan was portrayed (he seemed too happy and cocky to be Clone Wars-era Quinlan), the fact that Gardulla apparently survived her encounter with Jango, Ziro and Sy's relationship (even if it was a cover, seeing Sy make lovey-dovey with Ziro was painful), and as unusual as it sounds, I actually kind of wish Bane had died in that fight. It would have been an epic send-off, and the pesimist inside me worries that he will lose his coolness later on.

    Loved the Temple of Doom and Big Lebowski shout-outs, and the [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zelda_Rubinstein]Tangina[/link]/Capote ship was high-larious in a weird way. Plus, continuity was largely followed, so an all-around win.

    Does that mean it ruined your life?

    I'd also say SW has a Bishonen Line: The most powerful Force users are human, after all.

    So my wife's theory as to what happens to Ahsoka such that Anakin is not considered a Master and no one talks about him ever having had an apprentice has shifted from Ahsoka being killed to her becoming a Separatist...





    And then we watched Friday's episode o_O

    that is what I want to happen as well...Ahsoka actually seems to THINK more than Anakin, in both the cartoons and novels...so I can see her making an idealistic shift and leaving him behind

    As Aurra once said, that would be poetic.
