    Cause Boba has the accent and all the clones are supposed to have the accent. The reason they don’t is because Dee Bradley baker can’t do a good Kiwi accent. I will admit her accent is the strongest out of any character with a Kiwi accent but it is canonical that every clone has a kiwi accent. Although Morrison’s isn’t as pronounced.

    as to why clones have the same accent as Jango? Beats me. Maybe George thought genetics controlled accent lol.

    In the prequels, all the clones - based on Kiwi Boba - had Kiwi accents.

    Hers is significantly more pronounced and significantly more annoying.

    Tem has a pretty thick Kiwi accent, I think.

    I’m struggling with this season. Only been able to finish 4 episodes so far. Hoping for a pick up soon.

    It’s a lot of episodes with character building. It will pay off. At least it did for me.

    It gets better. Though it gets worse here and there. Though better eventually. Much better.

    Here is a list of all the episodes I think are key.

    Episodes 7, 8, 9(this one some may consider filler, but it really incapsulates the character development of the season), 11,12, 13 (Again some may consider this filler, but I think its important setting up what is lost in the following episodes), 14, 15, 16

    However I would recommend watching all of them as there are important moments for character development and honesty you'll only be skipping three episodes so its only an hour and a bit.

    Ughhhhh judging by my ears bleeding I believe this gal on ep 5 is voiced by Wanda Sykes. I don’t know how much of that I can take so hopefully it ain’t much at all.

    I think she appears in 1 other episode I do. Believe. At least majorly. Yea. One episode and then 1 scene in one of the final episodes.

    It was a completely inconsequential episode and the worst one in the season, IMO. Should have skipped it.
    Essential and good-great episodes of season 2 are: 3, 7, 8, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16
    Okay episodes: 1, 2, 6, 9

    It was so damn boring.

    I quite enjoyed S1 but this has been utter drivel.

    Yeah, there are quite a few momentum killers in this season. Season 1 was more consistently okay and "even." But this season has very good highs, the best in the entire series. It's just that they are spread far apart from one another. Episode 3, and then 7 & 8, and then 11 & 12 with 13 being another momentum killer "calm before the storm" episode. Then it's consistently great 14, 15, 16 finale run.

    I think 13 is important though. Your losing context if you don’t watch it. 13 gives the hero’s hope.

    If you get through the low points (which are indeed lower than in S1), you’ll be rewarded, as the high points are much higher than those in S2. Ultimately rendering this season the better of the two, IMO.

    If you want to just get the good stuff, cut out the Cid-related ones and you'll be fine. Anything Cid was pretty boring both seasons.

    In the end S2 surpassed S1. Thanks to some stellar episodes.

    I think the guide I gave above is good. I even pointed out some more episodes you could cut even if I don't consider them filler whatsoever.

    The good news is Bad Batch has had far more successful launches than most of his endeavors so hopefully he will do the right thing and just stay home and watch cartoons.

    Having just finished my watch through this weekend, I liked S2, but not as much as S1. Though, Ep12 The Outpost might be the best episode of the series. It's at least in the top 3. Overall, I love the series, and am sad it's only getting one more season. But, at least they actually seem to be building to an ending.

    I had to go looking for this thread. But anyway with Sony taking over production of Disney’s physical media I do wish for two things and I can be happy.

    complete box set season 1-7 of TCW
    Complete box set of TBB.

    although I would much rather the former than the latter.
