Yeah, Rookies and that's it.
Seasons V-X will be all about Maul & his new army.
Lots of new canon to tell, er I mean toys to sell.
Darth Maul may never rule the GFFA, but the dude owns Walmart.
You know... I actually don't have a Darth Maul toy. But, I also have no plans to get one, unless he has a "bisected" action feature.
As for whether or not the show is worth watching... If you are willing to turn off your brain and ignore all the canonical screw-ups, it is actually enjoyable. I do have my favorite episodes and I like the animation. I was particularly impressed with the lighting and volumetrics in the episode Legacy of Terror, and another episode where Grievous does a very simple, yet very natural, glance off to the side as Dooku is delivering an ultimatum. Little things like that are a nice touch. I also enjoyed Pursuit of Peace, as it focused on the otherwise overlooked socioeconomic aspect of war.
However, if you're a stickler for canon... the show will give you ulcers.
Yeah, this show is definition of popcorn cartoons on saturday afternoons, even if it does air the night before. Its fun to watch, hard to reconcile...
i have like 5 maul action figures at least.
anyways i'm going into this believing its not canon since maul legit died on naboo. its an alternate reality
There are some good episodes but sogging through the rubbish can be difficult.
Not enough Jar Jar either.
Don't give Filoni any ideas.
Or Watto for that matter.
TCW is a good show for the mostpart, some politcal stuiff aside it generally does a better job in character development than the Prequels and gives more of the council Jedi come screen time to show off.
I never had any issue with Fisto being able to beat Greivous, if Obi Wan did it why not Fisto? The old CW cartoon doesn't really count anymore since they made the current one.
Greivous is not a Jedi, most force users should be able to beat him.
I like the way most characters are portrayed in the show. I care not whether it links properly with any EU books, it's G-Canon and the books are not so it can and will supercede literary material.
Yeah, I was about to say this too Drewton...
Not sure what that is, but it's more canon than any of the written EU stuff. Pretty much second only to the movies in terms of canon, so it can and will over-ride what happens in the books.
I get that fans can be annoyed at some of the stuff in the show not being the same as the books, but that was always likely. Lucas' version of events is not the same as those in the books and since his vision is law it's the one I sit with.
Of course, much of true canon contradicts itself, that's just bad writing and research.
I'm sorry man, but your post here is also not correct. While it's correct to say that t-canon can trump over c-canon and below, saying "that stuff [eu] isn't right because it's not Lucas' vision" isn't right to say. The EU has inspired Lucas in the past and who knows what's going on now.
And not only does TCW contradicts canon, it also contradicts itself as well.
not true at all. grevious was ultra powerful and was able to take out council members with ease. obiwan was leagues ahead of fisto, fisto died in 2 slashes from the emperor theyres no way obiwan or even grevious would have lost soo quickly. im assuming you never saw the original clone wars show, where grevious takes down 7 jedi at once including shak tii, ayla secura, and ki adi mundi. and he was able to do this with 2 hands not 4. so against fisto he should have been able to beat him with 2 hands, not get stomped by fisto while using 4 hands. unless you are saying fisto is almost twice as powerful as ki adi mundi which makes no sense
The original CW show is not the same as TCW series, they aren't in the same reality. That's like saying because someone did something in a book it means they can do something in the films, the films are not subject to anything in the books they are a seperate entity. What Greivous or any Jedi did in the old CW cartoon is irellevant to what they can do in TCW series.
Greivous cheats because he is generally not a match for most Jedi. Even in other parts of TCW when fighting the Zabrak Jedi (whose name I just forgot) he had his bodyguards assist him so he would get the upper hand in the fight. The only Jedi I recall Greivous killing easily was Fisto's Mon Calamari pupil who was not exactly a very powerful Jedi.
Greivous is tough for sure and capable of killing Jedi, but the elites of the Order shouldn't really have much trouble against him on his own.
So do the movies, unfortunately Lucas' continuity guys aren't very good (or he doesn't listen to any of them).
The Cestus Deception proves otherwise, where Obi-Wan admits that Fisto is a more skilled warrior than him.
Four strikes, actually.
It was made perfectly clear later on in the movie that Obi-Wan would not be able to survive against the Emperor. Plus, you have to take in the circumstances. Fisto and Mace were in a confined space, in shock over the sudden deaths of Agen and Saesee and had to co-ordinate their strikes carefully so as to not get in each others way.
And don't be silly a non Force user like Grievous against Sidious would have been killed faster than Fisto did.
It has already been stated in sources that Fisto is one of the best swordsmen in the Order. Why does it make no sense to you that Fisto can be stronger than Ki-Adi? What does the number of hands used got to do anything with this?
Tireless, I must be, to get the truth out....
There is no canon.
No T's, no C's, no G's... there is nothing of the sort.
There is only what G.Walton wants on THAT day. No more. No less.
Canon = Fanon
and neither exist.
Well, just do us all a favor and don't go into canon induced shock when you see who comes back at the end of the season.
In Season 8 when EpIV 3D is out there's going to be some kind of Luke Skywalker timetravel story.
Met, of course, by Ahsoka.
Maybe they'll have tea with Krayt, or least Owen Kenobi....
