    That was a nice detail...

    Voted for Voyage. Can't beat Anakin doing the Vader lightsaber toss. Close second would have been Mandalore Plot... which finally brought the Mandalorians into the clone wars fold. :)

    The fact that Senate Murders has 1 vote and Mandalore Plot none is hilarious.

    Voyage of Temptation by far.

    I accidentally chose Duchess of Mandalore though. Damn poll.

    I don't think so. There are people who actually prefer political episodes over the rest. As for Mandalore Plot, I bet that most of the people find it a good episode, just not their favorite.

    Senate Murders has Tom Kenny in it. He pulls a lot of weight. :p
    But yeah, in terms of politics, it isn't bad, though I prefer the Mandalore story arc myself in that area.

    Yeah, that's the funny thing about these polls. I bet that most people like Mandalore Plot more than Senate Murders, but if your taste is more towards an episode like MP, then you'll probably have enjoyed more an episode like Lethal Trackdown or Duchess of Mandalore, while if Agatha Christie-like plotlines are your thing, then for you it's Senate Murders all the way.

    I still don't understand why people have such trouble with the polls.

    I mean, the first time you vote on the poll, fair enough - but now it's like "fool me once, shame on...you. Fool me twice.....fool me won't get fooled again!" [face_cowboy]

    Absurd? Why?

    Because if you simply pitted Mandalore Plot against Senate Murders in a poll, I am sure Senate Murders would be crushed.

    But now Senate Murders got a vote, so I'm very happy to see that the only episode still with zero votes is R2 Come Home, the single episode which most aggravated me this half of the season.

    Senate Murders, Cat and Mouse, Senate Spy, Death Trap and Artoo Come Home were the 5 weakest episodes for me this season.

    Senate Murders wasn't terrible, just kinda dumb with the "whodunit" stuff that was either obvious or didn't make sense.

    Cat and Mouse IMO was the worst episode of the entire season, at least the others served some purpose, Cat and Mouse added nothing.

    I'm still figuring out which purpose 'Grievous Intrigue' served. Lots of cool action I guess. In the end it was still Grievous on the run and his plan failing.

    Senate Spy and Senate Murders were the weakest in my opinion.

    Lightsaber Lost was kind of filler as well, but at least it had Sinube, and lots of Coruscant underworld, which is always nice.

    The entire Boba trilogy was kind of pointless as well, but at least we got a great character in the form of Aurra Sing.

    Oh, I agree - Aurra really made the Fett trilogy watchable.

    Exactly, I also don't see it as absurd. For me they are pretty close and frm time to time I even prefer "Senate Murders". It has fine mood (as I love Agatha Christie-like detective stories), but I must agree that this particular mystery plot is kind of silly and weak.
    But at the same time "Mandalore Plot" for me is not very relevant episode either. I appreciate exposition of Satine, but Death Watch part is probably one of my least favourite in season 2. Maybe it's because I could never understood the whole excitement about Mandalorians. I am bored with this Fetts' armour and I would even prefer if this culture had not been introduced in tv series.

    At the same time I feel a bit sorry about such a low rank of "Cat and Mouse" - it is one of my favourite episodes in the entire "Clone Wars" show, I was even considering voting for it.

    Sorry, should have been more clear, that's what I get for posting at work.

    What I don't understand is how people can STILL HAVE TROUBLE VOTING FOR THE CORRECT OPTION!!! after however many polls in LACWAC! [face_laugh]

    Looks like it's going to be a close one between Voyage and Trackdown.

    Sorry Voyage of Temptation fans, I have been busy and I overlooked the poll. I will cast my vote for Voyage of Temptation to bring it up to parity with Lethal Trackdown (which also kicked ass).

    Anakin offing Tal Merrick was a fantastic baby-steps-down-the-slippery-slope-of-the-Dark-Side moment.

    After Anakin said that, Obi-wan and Satine should have shrugged their shoulders, turned to the camera, and said in unison, "That's our Anakin!"

    All kidding aside, I love the way Taylor delivered the "Anakin..." line right before Anakin's "blow up the ship" zinger. He sounded disappointed and proud at the same time.

    That would have been awesome.
