    Aside from going one episode too long and having an unnecessary love triangle, the Onderon Arc was pretty good - actually one of the better arcs on the show.

    Here's some. Season 3 was actually pretty good. Just those few corruption-Padme-lame episodes took it down a notch. Mortis, Nightsisters, Citadel, and Padawan Lost arcs were all quite decent episodes and I defiantly enjoyed them.

    Shadow Warrior is not the worst episode of TCW, as the Dooku v. Anakin duel was pretty awesome, that title goes to Bombad Jedi. I never hated a Clone Wars episode more than that. Lame CGI, lame Jar-Jar. Only plus was Nute Gunray being the central villain, there should be more of that.

    Carnage of Krell was better than Rookies.

    Season 1 was the worst season, I only liked Rookies, Lair of Grievous, The Hidden Enemy and the Ryloth arc.

    Season 5 is the best season. I found Revival, the Onderon Arc, Young Jedi (yes, I said Young Jedi. They were solid episodes that get a bad rep), and oh hell yes - the Shadow Conspiracy arc to be awesome. I like the way the finale is shaping up too. That droid arc though, ugh. Worst arc of the series.. I hated how we had to sit through 4 episodes of that.

    Okay, this one probably isn't unpopular, but the Shadow Conspiracy arc was the best arc in the show, destroying even the Umbara arc for me. The Lawless was the single best episode of TCW, and the duel with Sidious was as epic as Ventress v. Anakin in the microseries (which was at the time, my favorite duel outside the movies)

    And as I mentioned before, I find the show The Clone Wars to be better than the first two installments of the prequel trilogy and it disappoints me that more people aren't into it. If it hadn't existed, my liking for Star Wars would have 100% died in May 2005. The movies were done at the time, and there were no plans at all to make the Sequel Trilogy, the idea of it was ludicrous. Revenge of the Sith was the last Star Wars. I had no reason to expect, or believe, that in nearly 8 years I would find out just how wrong I was.

    The show has managed to maintain my love of Star Wars through my teenage years, which were some of the most chaotic. If the show hadn't existed, I wouldn't be as excited as I am now for the upcoming Sequel Trilogy with Episode VII, VIII, and IX. I remained a loyal Star Wars fan, instead of outgrowing a fad I was into when I was a little kid, solely because of the existence of this show. Here's to the next few seasons, and here's to the sequels!

    This show is far better than Episode 7-9 or the spin off movies will ever be

    I find it impossible to pick between something that exists and something that doesn't. There's no point of reference from which to compare.

    True... But we can make predictions and estimates based on what we do know... And I'm not saying my opinion is final, its subject to change :) (although extremely unlikley)

    Which is next-to-nothing. We know VII's director and some of the writing staff. We know that they're set after Return of the Jedi. We know they're going to be based off George Lucas' story treatments.

    That's basically it.

    Hindsight is 20/20. Blind guessing is, well, blind.

    I don't really know how unpopular an opinion it is, but I'm really surprised by how much I like TCW. I've only seen a dozen or so episodes scattered through the seasons so maybe I've just been really lucky but overall this show is pretty damn awesome. My only consistent complaint is the opening narrator's voice is so cheesy it makes me want to rip my ears off and that Ahsoka is right simply because she's Ahsoka in the early episodes I've seen.

    More like an obesse whale lol... you can't tell me THAT is supposed to be the leader of the New Jedi Order and the strongest Jedi alive? Heck lets bring Maul back a 3rd time while we're at it and bring back Dooku in fact he survived in episode 3....

    You see where I'm getting at.... Episodes 7-9 just seem ridiculous to me...

    I think the fact that the story of Anakin Skywalker's life ended in RotJ -- and thus no more movies are needed -- is more of an issue than Mark Hamill's weight.

    I'm sure he's already started a new workout routine for the film and he'll look a lot better in it than he does now, and I don't mean that sarcastically. I'm much more concerned about Carrie Fischer.

    One more think to look forward to in 3D, huh? No worries, I sense a Hollywood miracle.

    I whole heartedly agree with this. However, the actor's conditions is basically adding more fuel to the fire

    You could have him as a Force Ghost which I think was the original intent for the sequels, though I think I'd rather have Matt Latner be force ghost Anakin than Hayden.

    As for Hamil's weight, if the guy is just gonna be a wise Jedi who sits around in his robes the weight issue shouldn't be a problem.

    TBH I always have a problem with the Hollywood version of people as stick thin barbie figures who in no way match up to how people are in real life.
    Or when you have the hollywood ugly nerd who is basically a good looking guy in a bad jumper :D

    I enjoy the show very much, but I don't consider it canon.

    I don't know how unpopular this opinion would be, but I think that 'The Jedi Who Knew Too Much' was a better episode than 'The Lawless'.

    I might share that sentiment, there wasn't anything in The Lawless that did anything for me outside of the big finale, and I remain underwhelmed slightly by even that. In terms of percentage of the episode I enjoyed, The Jedi Who Knew Too Much takes the cake for me.

    A Sunny Day in the Void was beast. Hope we see more episodes like it.

    I also share the sediment. "The Lawless" was good, but it did have some flaws [IMO] that "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much" didn't share.

    That one is popular with Lucas.
