1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    In order of air date (hard to separate my Top 10):

    1. Witches of the Mist
    2. Wookiee Hunt
    3. Darkness on Umbara
    4. Plan of Dissent
    5. Escape from Kadavo
    6. A Friend in Need
    7. Massacre
    8. Revenge
    9. A Necessary Bond
    10. The Lawless

    Wow. Not one episode from the first two seasons. Strange, because I love season 2. I guess everything just became much more cinematic after the release of the Nightsisters trilogy, which appeals to me.

    I would make a top 10 list myself...but I'm sure I will end up making additions to it several times hehe. Once the series is finally finished I will make a list. But until I will definitely say "Lawless" is one of my favorite episodes so far, maybe because its so recent in my head.

    This is just off hand...

    1. Eminence - (Best alliance ever... Maul Savage and Vizsla)
    2. Shades of Reason - (Continuation of the alliance but Vizsla died :( Duel was the best ever in all of SW)
    3. Revival - (Great opener and duel)
    4. Hostage Crisis - (Cad Bane = epic)
    5. Massacre - (Grievous owns, awesome to see bad guy vs bad guy)
    6. Deception - (Awesome episode as most with cad bane are. prison break was awesome)
    7. Landing at Point Rain - (Whoa. Best battle in Star Wars. great episode for Anakin Ahsoka Obiwan and Mundi)
    8. Cargo of Doom - (Cad Bane vs Ahsoka)
    9. Revenge - (Maul is back baby)
    10. Bombad Jedi - (Funniest episode)

    Honorable Mentions
    Carnage of Krell - (Krell owns... Clones are great)
    Padawan Lost - (This episode completely marked the changing point in the series for me to liking ahsoka. Didnt really like her at the start from this point on I started loving her. I like the whole standing and fighting concept in situations like this episode)
    Witches of the Midst - (Savage Opress.... Nuff said. Katunko got owned)
    Shadow Warrior - (Evil Gungan? Hell yeah. Awesome episode. so much awesome stuff going for it. Funny as heck too)

    All are 10/10

    I couldn't contain my favorites to just 10 either. I had about 3 each season that I really liked. I based most of these on replay ability: If I replayed the episode multiple times because I just couldn't get enough of it, then it qualifies. In order from favoritest (1), to just favorite, here are my top 15, including some others that I really liked but didn't include.

    1. Trespass
    2. Hostage Crisis
    3. Rookies
    4. The Mandalore Plot
    5. Clone Cadets
    6. Landing at Point Rain
    7. Lethal Trackdown
    8. The Deserter
    9. Padawan Lost
    10. Wookiee Hunt
    11.Friends and Enemies
    12. Deception
    13. Carnage of Krell
    14. Shades of Reason
    15. Bounty Hunters


    Honorable Mentions:

    The Citadel
    Counterattack
    Darkness on Umbara
    Innocents of Ryloth
    The Lawless

    I'm not entirely sure why, but I just really love Trespass.

    The Jedi Who Knew Too Much is going to push an episode of the good ole' Top 10, I think. I'm going to wait a week before confirming that though, as I like to make sure it's not just "new episode fever".

    The hardest part will be choosing an episode to push out of the Top 10. Argh! So many good episodes!

    Pondered this question for a few days and the only standout episodes I can name off the top of my head are (in no particular order): "Massacre," "Shades of Reason," "The Lawless," and "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much." I'm going to have to revisit the Krell & Mandalore trilogies as well as the Nightsister arc. On average, this show is mildly entertaining. Clumsy dialogue and perpetual pacing issues constrain it from any real glory.

    Going through the series, I came up with this top ten in roughly this order. Maybe a few could be reshuffled, but I know the top 3 are definitely in my personal correct order:

    The Lawless
    Massacre
    Landing at Point Rain
    Plan of Dissent
    Carnage of Krell
    Shades of Reason
    The Hidden Enemy
    Wookiee Hunt
    Clone Cadets
    The Box

    Just missed the cut: Friends and Enemies, Missing in Action, A Friend in Need, Rookies, Bounty, and Nightsisters. Apparently, Anakin and Obi-Wan are unnecessary in my TCW love.

    I was making up a list, but I found it too hard to call out one episode when it came to arcs. So instead, I'm listing standalone episodes and arcs and I'm only going from seasons 1-4 since 5 has yet to conclude and I want to see the end of the final season 5 arc before adding it:

    Rookies
    Holocron Heist/Cargo of Doom/Children of the Force
    Lightsaber Lost
    Death Trap/Artoo Come Home/Lethal Trackdown
    Assassin/Evil Plans/Hunt for Ziro
    Nightsisters/Monster/Witches of the Mist
    Overlords/Alter of Mortis/Ghosts of Mortis
    Padawan Lost/Wookie Hunt
    Darkness on Umbara/The General/Plan of Dissent/Carnage of Krell
    Massacre/Bounty/Brothers/Revenge

    As you can tell, I'm a big fan of the underworld including Hutts and bounty hunters as well as the sith and dark jedi.

    My 10 favorite episodes in broadcast order (and the shallow reasons for my choices, lol):

    Cloak of Darkness (Ventress being awesome)
    Trespass (Obi-Wan getting hugged by a Talz is classic)
    Innocents of Ryloth (Obi-Wan being awesome plus Waxer & Boil)
    Landing at Point Rain (EVERYONE being awesome plus Waxer & Boil)
    Legacy of Terror (Anakin and Obi-Wan bickering like a married couple)
    Grievous Intrigue (Grievous being awesome)
    Voyage of Temptation (Satine and Obi-Wan bickering like a married couple)
    Hunt for Ziro (Quinlan and Obi-Wan bickering like a married couple)
    Carnage of Krell (I love a good villain and Krell was absolutely chilling)
    The Lawless (Had me actually rooting for Palpatine, which surprised me)

    Amen on "Escape From Kadavo". That episode is a bit underrated.
