  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) 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.

    Aftermath

    -------------------------------------

    Discussion of New Episodes - Rules
    (1) One of the mods will post each week's episode thread a few days before it airs on Disney+.

    (2) Discussion in the actual episode thread will be limited to that specific episode, NOT future episodes; past episodes may be referenced.

    (3) The Bad Batch episodes air on Friday* on Disney+ at 12am PST/PDT. Anyone who shares plot details about an episode before then must use spoiler tags. After that folks will begin discussing their reviews and thoughts which will likely include spoilers. To anyone concerned about being spoiled before watching the episode it is your responsibility to avoid the thread until you have had your chance to view.

    (4) Spoilers like character deaths, appearances, and major plot details must be spoiler tagged in the new episode thread prior to the episode television air date.

    (5) Do not post any preview video clips from the individual episode in the episode threads.

    (6) Official episode commentary may be posted in this episode thread.

    (7) Do not discuss future episodes in here.

    (8) Reviews for each episode may be posted once they have aired. One of the mods will add a grading poll to that episode's discussion thread.

    *All episodes premiere on Friday except for the premiere, which airs on a Tuesday.

    "Aftermath" as a title is interesting. Does everything that happens in this episode happen after the events of SOM/ROTS so The Clone Wars not just the show but the war is completely over? This is like the Tuesday after. That would be surprising since I was expecting some overlap.

    I wonder if they are going to do opening reels at the start of every episode like they did in Clone Wars.

    "With the fall of the Jedi Order and Republic, the Galactic Empire-"

    I hope at least this episode starts with one. What if it starts with the Clone Wars newsreel that just gets shut off or interrupted in the middle?

    They might, but unless they recorded it quite a while ago, it probably won't be Tom Kane doing the narration.

    I'm really curious about little things like what will the title sequence look/sound like. Will it be similar to TCW, or its own thing?
    It's always so exciting when we're getting this close to a new release! :D

    That may be right. We may start on Kamino as The Clone Wars ends in short order.

    I can see this happening.

    I really like this idea. It's like a warning system or something.

    I would love it if this episode started with a clone wars intro but who knows if Tom Kane could have recorded that in time

    I bad saying this because it's very sad stuff with Tom Kane but they could use a recording from the very beginning of one of the existing newsreel. Some of them start similarly enough. It would be pretty cool if that was reused from the TCW movie. If they even did the movie version of the TCW intro like was used for the Bad Batch episode. Intro, new Fortune Cookie. Start of the Newsreel. Palpatine cuts it off with a special address.

    Noted. Is there a site where we can check when the actual episode itself drops, or we simply wait until it appears on Disney+?

    Just don’t come on here for a few hours. It’s what I do if I don’t feel like staying up until 3

    “Aftermath”

    All right, Lucasfilm, this won’t be like the TCW finale. I’m ready. You’re not gonna make me cry this time! :p
