    C&C - Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Series Talkback

    Like This Thread!

    "Begun, the Clone Wars have."

    In the days before the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Empire, before the Jedi Order dissolved and their kind were driven to the brink of extinction, there was a war. A war between the Jedi and the Seperatists, between both the light side and the dark side of the force. One side, led by Sith Lords controlling an endless supply of Droids and hired bounty hunters. The other, led by the Jedi and their own army for which this war would come to be named after.

    These are the stories of the future Lord Vader, Anakin Skywalker, his young padawan Ahsoka Tano, the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, and countless other participants of this pivitol moment in galactic history. These are the Clone Wars.




    Having finished its impressively large run of exactly 108 episodes last March, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is one of the longest running American action cartoons in recent history. And now, like its 2003 Tartakovsky predecessor, it has made its way to Toonami, starting tonight at 3am EST!

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Episode 1 - Number 101

    Ambush



    Last time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...
    Spoiler:
    Yes, there actually is a "last time" for the first episode!

    The Clone Wars began at the Battle of Geonosis, when Obi-Wan Kenobi was captured by the Separatists, who were forming an army on the planet. It was a heated battle (with, IMO, really poor use of green screen), but it would be only the first conflict in what Master Yoda deemed "The Clone Wars".

    Within seven weeks of this first battle, on the planet of Christophis, another battle occurred. It was during this conflict that General Anakin Skywalker was assigned a padawan apprentice to train under him, a young Togrutan named Ahsoka Tano.

    However, immediately following this battle, a report went out that Jabba the Hutt's son, Rotta, had been kidnapped by a group of renegades led by Count Dooku, who intended to frame the Jedi for the kidnapping to get the Hutts on the Separatists' side. To make a long story short, the Jedi rescued Rotta, returned him to Jabba, and Jabba's uncle Ziro was found to be in cahoots with Dooku's plan.


    This week on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...
    Spoiler:
    Jedi Master Yoda and three clone troopers must face off against Count Dooku's dreaded assassin, Asajj Ventress, and her massive droid army to prove the Jedi are strong enough to protect a strategic planet and forge a treaty for the Republic.


    The hashtag we're using for this show is #starwarsTCW!

    I should also say that even if you don't like the first episode, keep watching. This show does improve over time.

    I think there's plenty of reasons to like this episode. It's probably just that not enough people outside of the Cartoon Network demographic have given it a chance. There are various things this show has going against it.

    - It's a TV show based on prequel trilogy not well received
    - It's a continuation of a 2D animated micro series that's very well-received.
    - Star Wars is long enough and popular enough to have been made fun off and make people jaded of the entire franchise.
    - It's not anime


    I swear Droidekas are annoying to get rid of no matter what Star War video game I've played so far.

    This speech Yoda gives to each of the three clones is exactly why I think this episode would make a good first episode on Toonami. As I've said fore, the Clones in this show are more than clones and they're given a sense of individuality.

    "BUT I JUST GOT PROMOTEEEEED!!"

    R.I.P random army droid.

    And the show just trended in the US. Take that haters!

    The Malevolence arc begins tonight!




    Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Episode 2 - Number 102

    Rising Malevolence


    Last time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Yoda made a trip to the coral moon of Rugosa to convince the Toydarian King Katuunko to allow the Republic to build a base in his territory. However, Asajj Ventress met with the King first, and attempted to sway the Toydarians to join the Separatists.

    Ventress struck a deal with the King: if Yoda could escape the best droids the Separatists had to offer, then the Toydarians would be free to join the Republic. With the help of the three clones that he brought as back-up, Yoda successfully made it past all the droids thrown at them and reached the King, saving him from an assassination attempt by Ventress. King Katuunko accepted Yoda's offer, earning a valuable ally and outpost for the Republic army.


    This time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    An attack by a devastating new Separatist weapon – the powerful starship Malevolence – leaves Jedi Master Plo Koon and his clone troopers struggling to survive until Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka can find them.

    Huh. It's always intriguing hearing how different the characters sound from the beginning of a story compared to much later. Matt Laner as Anakin sounds closer Mat Lucas in the micro series but deeper. And Ashley Eckstein made Ahsoka sound a lot younger and naive in these early episodes.

    Actually seeing this episode in retrospect made me realize, we got more of a personality out of individual jedi masters that even the microseries didn't elaborate on. That's not to say there were never jedi masters or apprentices shown in the microseries and we saw enough to get a sense of personality and relationships between the jedi. But this show really went into depth on certain jedi, even going as far to interact with the clones and help them realize their worth as comrades. In fact:

    Spoiler:
    I love how later in season 4, we see opposing views on the value of clones to jedi and it makes the clones themselves reconsider their assessment on jedi in general.

    After tonight's movie broadcast of Evangelion 2.22, and after the special surprise Toonami has cooked up for 2:30, don't forget to stick around for a Toonami-premiere episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars at its one-night-only slightly-earlier time of 2:45am!


    Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Episode 3 - Number 103

    Shadow of Malevolence


    Last time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Jedi Master Plo Koon and Clone Commander Wolffe tracked the Separatists' secret weapon, a massive ion cannon aboard the Separatist flagship Malevolence, to the Abregado system. General Grevious, the supreme commander of the droid army, jams Plo Koon's communications with the Jedi, stranding him in Separatist territory within firing range of the ion cannon.

    Dooku ordered Grevious to find and kill any survivors of the three ships under Plo Koon's command. As Plo Koon and the survivors waited for assistance from the Jedi to arrive, they struggled to survive, trying to hide from Grevious to moderate success. Eventually, they were picked up by Anakin and Ahsoka, who had been urged not to look for survivors (but did anyways), and prepared to leave. The Malevolence appeared before them, so they shut down all systems to try to mask their appearance, but forgot to shut off the onboard medical droid, alerting Grevious to its signal. Narrowly missing an onslaught from the Separatist flagship, Anakin takes them into a hasty hyperspace jump, escaping with the secrets of the secret ion cannon.

    Now they plan to strike...


    This time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    With the help of his Padawan Ahsoka and Jedi Master Plo Koon, Anakin utilizes new long-range Y-wing bombers to lead a bold strike on General Grievous' warship, the Malevolence, and its destructive weapon.

    Clone Wars returns to its normal time of 3am!

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Episode 4 - Number 104

    Destroy Malevolence


    Last time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Anakin Skywalker led a strike against the Malevolence, the plan being to destroy the ship's bridge with Y-Wing Bombers, killing General Grievous. However, Plo Koon and Ahsoka both protested against this plan, saying it was too aggressive. Meanwhile, Dooku contacted Grievous, giving the battleship's next target: the Kaliida Shoals Medical Center.

    The Medical Center was contacted by Admiral Yularen to warn about a possible attack, but with not enough time to evacuate the Center's 60,000 patients, Anakin quickly brought his Y-wing bombers to the Kaliida Nebula. Briefly slowed down by a nest of Neebrays, Skywalker's squadron reached the Medical Center at the same moment as the Malevolence. At point blank range of the Malevolence's ion cannon, Anakin quickly lost half of his squadron, forcing him to change his plan.


    As the battleship charged its cannon once more, its sights now set on the Medical Center, Anakin and his squadron opened fire on it, destroying key components to the ship. The cannon attempted to fire, but became overloaded, crippling the Malevolence, forcing the battleship to retreat to Separatist territory. Returning to base, Anakin is praised on his victory, but he cannot shake the guilt of all the lives lost under his command...


    This time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Padmé Amidala and C-3PO are taken hostage by General Grievous, leaving Anakin and Obi-Wan to save the Senator and complete the destruction of the Malevolence.

    Tonight, a fan-favorite episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars!

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Episode 5 - Number 105

    Rookies



    Last time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Senator Amidala is sent by Senator Palpatine to meet with the InterGalactic Banking Clan, but little did she know that her course was set for her to fly directly towards the crippled Malevolence. She and C-3PO became trapped aboard, forcing Anakin to cease the attack on the warship.

    As Anakin heads a rescue mission with Obi-Wan to save Padme, she and C-3PO managed to evade their captors at every turn. Skywalker and Kenobi boarded the battleship, saving Padme and C-3PO. Before repairs on the Malevolence's hyperdrive could finish, Kenobi destroyed it, and Anakin destroyed all the droids onboard. Obi-Wan briefly dueled with Grevious, while Skywalker set the Malevolence's navicomputer on a crash course with a nearby moon. They escaped, leaving Grevious to watch in horror as his flagship was destroyed with him on board.

    Grevious survived the crash, though his credibility with Count Dooku was left in shambles. With the Malevolence destroyed beyond repair, a major victory was scored by the Republic. However, this would be only a footnote compared to the struggles that lay ahead...


    This time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Alone on a distant outpost, clone officers Rex and Cody must inspire their rookie unit to believe in themselves to stave off a droid commando invasion.

    Rex: "Roger, roger!"

    God, Rex is awesome. Also, never recalled these droids before, Being undercover spies and ambushing. These are the most useful droids I've seen since the droidekas.

    I just read a very oddly-interesting tweet. When in the episode were pinup models shown anyway?

    Droids: "Do we take prisoners?"

    Heavy: "I... don't!"

    Lesson of the day: CLONES ARE BOSS!!

    It looks like episode 8 "Bombad Jedi" will be the first one getting skipped, which makes sense considering Jar Jar Binks is in it.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Episode 7 - Number 107


    Duel of the Droids




    Last Time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    (I'm not able to make a custom recap this time, so the following is from Wookiepedia.)

    Because Grievous has been ambushing Republic fleets at places like Falleen, Obi-Wan advises that Anakin take his fleet out of the Bothawui system and regroup, but he has a plan to defeat General Grievous. At that moment, Grievous's fleet is advancing on his. Anakin leads Gold Squadron in a frontal assault, informing his forces to wait for the right moment as Grievous' fleet advances through the asteroid belt. This gives Rex and his brigade of AT-TEs a chance to ambush the Separatist frigates from behind.

    Because his droid commander is too incompetent on where to retreat to, Grievous flees the ship on his personal starfighter. Anakin and Artoo pursue him until a piece of shrapnel embedded in the fighter causes it to careen off course. Anakin later wakes up aboard the Resolute, learning that he was salvaged from his fighter; Artoo was not. However, he informs Obi-Wan that he didn't erase Artoo's memory, which would be a severe liability should the astromech fall into Separatist hands. Anakin heads a salvage operation to recover Artoo, but Ahsoka shows him the new R3-S6, who has better skills than an R2-unit, calling him Goldie. As they search the debris field, they spot a freighter and dock with it. The Trandoshan captain, Gha Nachkt, claims there is no R2 unit on board but allows them to search anyway. Anakin hears Artoo's beep and begins to slice through the door that he thinks he heard it in. But Goldie accidentally activates two IG-86 units instead of opening the door. The two Jedi manage to slice the droids in pieces as Anakin gets through the door, only to find Gha, who is angry that his droids were destroyed. Ahsoka concludes that Artoo is not on board and they leave. But unfortunately, Gha had the little droid locked in a crate with a restraining bolt on and contacts Grievous, informing him that the droid is of great strategic value. Artoo later escapes while Gha is sleeping, flushing one of his IG units out of the airlock, only to be discovered by the Trandoshan.

    Figuring that Grievous has a listening post somewhere, Anakin decides to go scouting but Ahsoka sends along R3, saying they could bond. R3 instead accidentally turns on the tracking device, alerting Grievous to his position. R3 only makes things go from bad to worse, detaching Anakin's fighter from its hyperdrive docking ring, not cutting the engines when he is told to, and disabling the blaster cannons. He is luckily saved by Ahsoka and Rex in the Twilight. Grievous, frustrated with Skywalker's escape, beheads a battle droid in rage. Anakin chastises the incompetent droid over nearly getting him killed and hopes that Artoo is still out there.


    This Time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Anakin, Ahsoka and replacement droid R3-S6 embark on a dual rescue/sabotage mission when they discover R2-D2 is being held at General Grievous' secret enemy listening post, Skytop Station.

    I've always found General Grievous's design very intriguing. His 2-D design in the microseries always seemed more appealing overall with the one exception of the color of his skeleton being light blue. Admittedly, I always dug how changed and stayed to black in the movies and the TV series. It felt more eye-popping color wise.

    Okay, why is the ship called The Twilight? Kinda odd name for a Star Wars ship.

    Seeing the cloudy sunset setting in the fight between Anakin's team and the battle droids is definitely breath-taking, but it makes me wonder. How exactly are the finalized background designs done in a CG show like the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series? It's one thing to animate and color characters in CG, but backgrounds that look photorealistic is something I've been curious about.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Episode 9 - Number 109


    Cloak of Darkness




    Last Time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Artoo managed to transmit the location of Grievous' listening post on a Ruusan moon, which the Twilight picked up. Though advised by Obi-Wan to wait for reinforcements, Anakin headed a rescue mission to save Artoo before his secrets fell into Separatist hands, as well as to plant a bomb. Gha Nachkt accessed Artoo's memory bank and found that the little droid contained every Republic strategy. He demanded more money, but Grievous decided to give it to him by stabbing him in his back with his lightsaber. When the team arrived at the station, Anakin separated from Ahsoka and the clones, heading out alone to find Artoo. Unbeknownst to them, R3-S6 was actually a spy for the Separatists, and alerted General Grievous to their presence. Tano and the clones infiltrated the reactor control room, but they had to confront and eliminate the security battle droids. After that, Grievous ordered his IG-100 MagnaGuards to take Artoo to the ship.

    Meanwhile, Anakin had succeeded in finding R2-D2, and dueled Grievous' MagnaGuards. Once they were defeated, he and Artoo ordered everyone to rendezvous in the south hangar. Unfortunately, Ahsoka did not hear them, as Grievous had engaged her and her clones. The general killed all clones but Rex and Denal. Ahsoka defended herself against Grievous's blows and retreated to a room filled with spare droid parts. She hid from the general, but R3 gave her away. Grievous destroyed her comlink, and she manageed to escape through a vent. As Anakin and the clones, who had succeeded in planting the bombs, met the Twilight in the hangar, R3's treachery was revealed when he trapped them and activated several droids to fight them. Anakin ordered Artoo to open the doors. Ahsoka rejoined the team, who defeated the Vulture droids and escaped in the Twilight, detonating the bombs. Grievous escaped the station in his ship, Soulless One. Anakin leaft in his starfighter to pick up Artoo.

    Meanwhile, Artoo managed to open the hangar doors, but R3 moved to intercept him, and the two droids faced each other in combat. Artoo pushed his Separatist counterpart over the edge, but R3 grabbed him with a suction cup. Artoo succeeded in cutting the cable, and R3-S6 was sent flying into the air, and he was destroyed by flying debris. Artoo was then rescued by Anakin.

    As they left the system, Anakin contacted Obi-Wan. While they succeeded, Obi-Wan disapproved of Anakin's choice to risk the mission and all their lives to save a droid. While Ahsoka was happy they got R2 back, she agreeed with Obi-Wan. But Anakin said R2 is more than a droid: he is a friend.


    Since we're skipping episode 8, "Bombad Jedi", here is what you'll be missing:

    Spoiler:
    Padmé travels to Rodia in an attempt to persuade Senator Onaconda Farr, whom she fondly addresses as Uncle Ono since when he had helped out her father, to keep his allegiance to the Republic. She brings along C-3PO and Jar Jar Binks, despite Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's advice to rather take along a bodyguard force. But upon arrival, she learns that Onaconda has already pledged allegiance to the Separatists and Viceroy Gunray is delivering supplies as the Republic could not. Already, there are battle droids in his city. The droids lock Padmé up, manacled, as Gunray ordered as a precaution before he personally comes for her.

    Jar Jar and Threepio get into even more trouble when droids come to arrest them. Though Jar Jar's bumbling with the magnetic crane destroys the droids, he also destroys their ship, ruining their chance to contact help. He puts on a Jedi robe Padmé had stored in the back closet (most likely belonging to Anakin), but droids spot them and everyone presumes he's a Jedi. Jar Jar manages to escapes to the water down below, where he promptly has to run from a marine monster, while Threepio is taken off to be scrapped. Word of a Jedi around gives Padmé an idea: while she bluffs the droids into thinking the Jedi has rescued her already, she slips out of her manacles, roundhouse kicks the droid, steals its blaster and escapes.

    Padmé rescues Threepio but is dismayed to learn that the Separatists think Jar Jar is a Jedi. She tells Threepio to find a communication station to call for help. Meanwhile, Gunray has arrived in his shuttle, the Lapiz Cutter, and tells Onaconda that the supplies will be delivered after Padmé is executed. Onaconda tries to protest but Gunray insists, declaring that Rodia is under his protection now. Onaconda then realizes that he has made a bad mistake siding with the Separatists.

    Jar Jar goes to rescue Padmé, only to be spotted and shot at. He again dives into the water as droids throw down thermal detonators and fire a rocket at him. While swimming away, he runs into the "boogie monster" he met previously, which swallows him up as the rockets are about to explode. Thankfully, the beast saves him thanks to its thick hide, and Jar Jar declares it his friend.

    Threepio manages to send out a message before being captured. Gunray has a trio of droidekas line up to execute Padmé and Threepio when Jar Jar and the boogie monster burst up from the swamp. In the ensuring chaos, Gunray tries to get away, but his shuttle, the Lapiz Cutter, is pushed into the swamp by the monster and Padmé holds him at gunpoint. Onaconda appears behind Padmé, his own blaster at the ready, and Gunray orders the Rodian to shoot her. However, upon seeing Onaconda's expression, Padmé tells Gunray about their "little secret", that Onaconda planned to trap Gunray all along. Onaconda agrees that he is with the Republic, and places Gunray under arrest.

    A Republic cruiser arrives with reinforcements to take Gunray away, while Onaconda thanks Jar Jar (whom he calls "Master Bombad") for his assistance. Palpatine, via holoprojector, promises supplies to Rodia. Onaconda asks Padmé if she can ever forgive him, but she replies that it is the Republic who should ask him for forgiveness. Far too often they forget that their most important allies are not always the most powerful.


    This week on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...

    Spoiler:
    Ahsoka and Jedi Master Luminara escort the captured notorious Separatist leader Nute Gunray to Coruscant so he can stand trial for his crimes. However, they are unaware that Count Dooku has sent his assassin, Asajj Ventress, to free their captive. With the help of Senate Commandos, the Jedi have to thwart Ventress's efforts to free their prisoner, despite the traitorous plans of Senate Guard Captain Argyus.

    Star Wars: The Clone Wars
    Episode 10 - Number 110


    Lair of Grevious


    Last Time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...
    Spoiler:
    Viceroy Gunray has been transferred to the Tranquility under Luminara Unduli where he was to be carefully taken to Coruscant to face trial for war crimes. Ahsoka and a number of Senate Commandoes under Captain Faro Argyus had also been transferred. Ahsoka does not think that all the extra security is necessary, but Master Unduli assures her that the Neimoidian is more dangerous than he looks. Unduli suggests that his allies could be conspiring against them.

    Elsewhere, Darth Sidious informs Count Dooku that Gunray poses a significant danger to them and their plans if he is interrogated. Dooku tells him that he has already put a plan into motion. Dooku is sending his assassin and best agent Asajj Ventress, despite her previous failures, to either rescue or silence Gunray. Once Sidious is gone, Dooku impresses on Ventress the fact that failure is not an option.

    Back on the Tranquility, Unduli and Ahsoka interrogate the Viceroy. When they are getting nowhere and the Viceroy refuses to answer their questions, Ahsoka threatens him only to be chastised by Unduli. Nonetheless, the threats coerce Gunray to start talking. Unfortunately for the two Jedi, a swarm of Vulture Droids escorting three Separatist boarding ships attack the Tranquility. Super battle droids assault the cruiser and hold off the clones, allowing Ventress to slip inside undetected. Commander Gree, a squad of Green Company, and Unduli goes off to deal with the droids, leaving Ahsoka to guard Gunray. Ventress infiltrates the engine room and plants a number of thermal charges on the cruiser's generators before going to the brig. The Super Battle Droids are destroyed, leaving Ventress the last enemy on board. She duels Ahsoka for a short while before ironically locking her in Gunray's cell. Luckily, Unduli's timely arrival prevents Ventress from rescuing Gunray. Unfortunately, the assassin detonates the charges, rocking the ship before fleeing down the elevator shaft. Unduli goes after Ventress, confident that she can defeat the assassin, leaving Ahsoka again, in spite of the Padawan's insistence that Ventress is too dangerous for any one Jedi to combat. Argyus advises Ahsoka to do what she thinks is right.

    In the generator room, Ventress and Unduli duel: Unduli is swiftly outmatched as Ventress, outraged because Unduli is taunting her fighting style as a sloppy and amateurish imitation of Dooku's, overpowers Unduli and traps her under a number of collapsed pipes. Ahsoka makes a timely save only for Ventress to escape again. Back in the brig, Argyus betrays his fellow commandos and frees Gunray, revealing that he was bribed by Dooku to help rescue the viceroy. Commander Gree manages to overpower him after a brief fight, only to be knocked out by Gunray. They make their escape on the docked Republic ship in the lower hangar, joined by Ventress, who uses an escape pod. Argyus gloats that he will take most of the glory in his report to Count Dooku, but Ventress impaled him, killing the turncoat.

    Later, Unduli and Ahsoka report to Yoda and Anakin Skywalker about the loss. They are told that they may be able to track the stolen ship. Ahsoka leaves to join Skywalker with Kit Fisto's fleet, but not before receiving an apology from Unduli for not having listening to her monition about Ventress.


    This time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars...
    Spoiler:
    Jedi Master Kit Fisto and his former Padawan, the Mon Calamari Jedi Nahdar Vebb, track escaped prisoner Nute Gunray to a remote world. Following Nute into a mysterious den filled with strange creatures, weapons, and war-time artifacts, the Jedi discover it is the trap-laden lair of General Grievous! Learning that Count Dooku has led the Jedi there in order to punish Grievous for his recent failures, the General is determined to prove his abilities and destroy the Jedi. Kit and Nahdar, along with a contingent of clones, must now fight their way past Grievous and his caretaker droid A-4D to avoid being caught in General's evil clutches forever.

    Additionally, Star Wars: The Clone Wars won't be on next week. Instead, stay tuned for the one-hour IGPX series finale!

    Also, some interesting news just came in: Production on the illusive season 6 has wrapped. So we'll hopefully get to see the final episodes soon!

    I wonder if this will have any effect on the airing of the show on Toonami. If Disney decides to air the final season on Disney XD, then they might want it pulled from Adult Swim.

    That would definitely suck if that happened. I know it's HIGHLY unlikely, but it would be really something it Toonami ever had a chance of exclusively premiering the 6th season. Stupid Disney, wanting to selfishly get episodes 7-9 made!

    Man, Grevious's main control room sure does give off a deathly feel, what with the blue color scheme and all.

    And the newly promoted Jedi Knight just got shot. R.I.P Nadar Vebb.

    Grevious: "I will kill you all! Do you hear me Jedi?!"

    Kit Fisto: "You might have been a proud warrior once, but now you are just a pawn in Dooku's game!"

    Lines of the night for this show.

    Last I heard, Clone Wars had been canned along with everything else in the regime change. Did they change their minds?

    I also heard the non-ending assured Ahsoka would not meet a grim demise. Guess that's still a possibility now.

    A large chunk of season 6's production was already completed before Disney bought Lucasfilm. I'm willing to assume two possibilities:

    A) Disney was nice enough to let them finish the season.
    B) They had to do some tough negotiating.
