Clone Wars Season 2: Latest Episode Discussion

I thought this would be a cool place to talk about the episodes. So now that two are out what is it getting better or worse than the Movie?

I dunno, I havn't seen the first 2 yet, since TNT is NOT getting the episodes like what was promised as part of the CN deal.

i sat down and watched the first 2 today on my dvr....I enjoyed them, I liked the yoda theme music in the background of the first, nice musical touch, although I still think the talk between the battle droids is a little too stupid, but the kids probably like it


my only problem is with the cartoon network, because I set the dvr to record both shows and each one cut off the last minute of dialog, guess the network and my dvr don't agree on the actual time

2nd episode, I didn't care for Plo Koon's voice, it did not sound like what I thought it would sound like, talking through that breather/filter of his

I have to agree on the Battle Droids... No wonder they lost the war... Sheesh.
I really enjoyed the Yoda episode. It was cool to see him a bit more like he was in Empire mixed with his a$$ kicking side.
I'm also liking how the series has a more detailed look at the clones personalities.

I've heard that they'll be available on iTunes at some point.

Same thing happened to me, sort of. On the 1st episode the last 30-60 seconds got cut off by the DVR but was there at the beginning of the 2nd episode. The 2nd episode didn't get cut off at all for me.

Also count me in on not liking the battle droids 'personalities'. I understand why they did it, but since they're all controlled by a command ship shouldn't they all have the same personality? One that isn't so slapstick?

I like it better - slightly - than the film. I'm hoping that it will grow on me. But they really need to stop the droids from speaking.

For what it's worth my 2 youngest daughters LOVED the battle droid humor. Actually made them laugh. And from what I've heard from a fellow atlanta collector who works for CN and has seen the upcoming Jar Jar episode, I will take slapstick bantor all day love from the battle droids vs. 2 seconds of Jarjar.

Same with my son and his cousin. They watched each episode twice on Saturday morning and laughed their little butts off. They were walking around all day quoting the droids.

From TV.com:

Shadow of Malevolence
Airs: Friday October 10, 2008
After discovering the location of a Confederacy cruiser housing a devastating new weapon, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his padawan Ahsoka Tano lead a daring assault against the Malevolence.

Looks like the first arc! That's cool. Here's the next new few episodes tittles:

Destroy Malevolence (Third Part)
Rookies
The Lair of General Grievous (Sounds cool)

Yeah they have to drag it out somehow!  ;D

I want to see how they pull off a story arc. I also look forward to seeing General Grievous's crib.

Right before the premiere, there was a behind-the-scenes stlye countdown...thing.  One of the snippets was a clip from Grivous' lair: dark, spooky, full of his replacement parts...should be interesting.

I liked the latest episode.  Much like Ambush, it hearkened back to the OT in some ways.  The whole attack on Malevolence was just like the Death Star attack in ANH, from the pilots checking in (in Y-Wings, to boot), to the battle droids in the ion cannon firing tunnel, to "watch those towers, boys."  Little nods like that, or full-on homage, really make it feel more Star Wars-y.

And say what you will, but I like the battle droids.  :P

I'm liking the show, but I'm going to start watching it on mute. Those Battle Droids are more annoying that almost anything else, save a person or two.

Though the battle droids are funny, they just shouldn't have all that personality. It just doesn't make any sense.

The new one was better, but all the ANH refrences were weird for me. And we get it...the Jedi treat their clones nice. Can we get a differant plot device now?

I'm actually getting caught up on CN.com so I will give my take but I can already say a A+ anyway. The reason I say that is because I love CW anyway.

i loved it, it keeps getting better, the droid banter was less excessive this week and the YWing ships looked very cool....I still hate the voice for Plo Koon, it just doesn't flow well with the character in my opinion

After watching them last night on CN, I REALLY thought that it was great and loved Plo Coons voice. I thought it sort of fit them as well the droids had me laughing, so I give a HUGE DOUBLE  :thumbup: :thumbup:

The second part was pretty good. I dug the Y-wings I can't not see this being made into plastic!

Keep bringing us good stories like this and I'm hooked.
