    Cause for me Clone Cadets was so amazing in terms of exploring Clones that I to this day love the episode. The interaction between each clone or clone with other character like Shaak Ti or Bric was engaging. Much more so than Umbara.

    And it was another episode that falls in the category I love "Episodes with Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka or Rex". It is Genius.

    Rookies is classic.

    ARC troopers is also very great. The return to Kamino and the battle that happens are amazing.

    The series in general really needs help with music, though I love the theme they used for Ventress' underwater vessel.

    “Clone Cadets” (S301)
    “Supply Lines” (S303)
    “Ambush” (S101)
    “Rising Malevolence” (S102)
    “Shadow of Malevolence” (S103)
    “Destroy Malevolence” (S104)
    “Rookies” (S105) Ventress is in this episode, but I don't exactly remember where she is. Is she stationed on Kamino, waiting for Grievous and the fleet?
    “Downfall of a Droid” (S106)
    “Duel of the Droids” (S107)
    “Bombad Jedi” (S108)
    “Cloak of Darkness” (S109) Ventress appears. Does this mean, after the failure in Rookies, the Seps put the Kamino-invasion on the back burner?
    [an undetermined amount of time passes by]
    "ARC Troopers" (S302) Ventress is back on Kamino. For being such a secure planet, its pretty easy to come and go undetected.

    I guess the Separatists went back to the drawing board after the Rishi Moon base thing. Maybe they just gave it some time for the Republic to let their gaurd down again. The Base was technically destoryed. Not sure how long it would take to rebuild or if the Republic even did that. I assume there was a pretty good space of time between "Rookies" and "ARC Troopers" during which Echo and Fives gained experience.

    Yeah, I guess they (the Seps) waited for a different opportunity. What confused me was the Ventress thing. I assumed Rooks and ARCs were closer in time, so that Ventress never left Kamino. Ah, well, its not the first time TCW-logic has confused me. And yes, Echo and Fives needed more experience before their promotions.

    I decided to watch C&M, Hidden Enemy, and The New Padawan (from TCW 2008). I had an idea today: what if Christophsis and Domino Squad were interlinked. Imagine if Ventress left in the Trident so she could infiltrate Kamino, not kidnap Jabba's son. And the message that Yoda needed to deliver to Anakin and Obi-Wan was not "Go save Rotta," but "Go to Kamino and defend the clone facility." Then I realized, it wouldn't work: Rex can't be in two places (Christophsis and the Rishi Moon) at the same time.

    Seerow Was Cody on Christophsis, too? Or just Rex?

    I didn't think you could watch that one individually. Is it available on its own or do you just stop the movie after that episode finishes?

    Sometimes I turn it off after Christophsis, or just watch everything else. I don't like how The New Padawan was shoehorned into another arc. I think Filoni should cut the movie into TV-ready eps. It would add 4 eps to the series, not to mention Ahsoka's introduction was in the movie and not the show.

    Sorry for the tangent! Back to Domino Squad! :cool:

    Both were on Christophsis. Hidden Enemies is a Rex and Cody classic. Well, Rex could be in two places if someone looked exactly like him. =b

    Cody was in the movie as well. The movie however can be considered part of the clone arc overall since it provided the first bit of development for Rex. It does set up his independent streak and hint at how intelligent he is. Rex was able to resist a mind trick from Ventress and then lead a handful of clones to successfully hold off enemy forces. He was epic right from the start. I probably would of liked Rex from the start if I had watched the movie first.

    I did. It was late and I was tired and made a typo...


    Vader, Vader, Vader..... seeing that we have argued like a million times, you would figure that is a typo. LOL

    I love "Episodes WITHOUT Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka or Rex". It is Genius.






    It is The Hidden Enemy - singular. The Cody/Rex team up was amazing in that episode. I would love to see more of that and have a Cody/Rex contrast made...
