This is never going to work.. ROOKIES | CLONE CADETS | ARC TROOPERSThese episodes really showed the characterization this show gives clones. I mean, there was an Irish clone! (What the hell heck was that?!) Rookies was a instant fan favorite in S1, and some even say it still carries on in their top 5 episodes of almost 100 to choose from. The choice to go back in time to watch our beloved rookies train was an interesting experience. We got to see how some of our heroes got their nicknames and who that one guy who got eaten by the eel was. (CUTUUUUUUUUUPAH!!) BROOOOOOMANCE!Now the ARC Trooper episode episode was a jump into the present, after Rookies, and looming before the great (2nd) Battle of Kamino. Here we saw our two surviving rookies in their pristine 501st armor, fighting to protect their home planet. At the end of the episode, our boys were promoted (wince) to ARC trooper status.How about you guys? Do you feel this arc is one of TCW's best? Why or why not? Which one is the weakest of the three? Do you think the Citadel arc could be considered to be apart of the Rookies arc? Why is Cutup Irish? How does a clone beat another clone in a arm wrestling match if both have the same muscles (genetically)? Is Rex's pauldron possessed?
