You guys watch this yet? It's out on DVD so I'm just caught up now....

This was a great season, though the bog baddies made no appearances- Dooku, Grevious, Ventress and Jar Jar are all absent.

We do however get Mandalorians, a black lightsabre and a giant monster.

...and a Seven samuri tribute which i thought pretty cool.

Overall, not as dark as season one but still pretty harsh in places for SW.

Oh, and Anakin impales someone on his lightsabre in the funniest SW moment of all time!

I watch it for research, of course, but I'm also often rather fond of it. That said, some episodes are a bit dull here in Season 3.

I notice they pretty much thrown continuity out the window, making sequels and prequels to episodes from the first two seasons.

If the prequel movies were contunity- then I say SCREW contunity!
Clone Wars is much better in every way- writing, drama and acting being most obvious.

No I mean its becoming harder to determine the time frame of specific episodes, other than the fact they all seem to take place in the first couple of months of the war. But yeah the writing is pretty good, and the CGI characters are better at eliciting an emotional response from viewers the way the flesh-and-blood actors strangely couldn't in the prequel films.

Ah. I see- yes, you're right there- it's like how the hour-long special (which introduced Ashoka) happens 2/3 through season one, and when viewed after the episode where a clone selld them out to Ventress, makes perfect sense....but otherwise youre wondering where Anakin's padawan is for most of part season.

The timeline is ... interesting. There are prequel episodes to prequel episodes and so on, ad nauseum.

By the end, I hope to see that the continuity works nicely, but I fear you can't jump around in the timeline and maintain continuity unless you are *damn* sure what you're doing, well in advance.

Well they've been very keen not to tip the contunity apple cart- like never having Grevious and anakin meet face to face (as their only introduction is in Ep. III).

Just saw the trailer for the second half of season two- looks amazing.
Some Sith dude laughing off lightsabre strikes by deflecting them with his arms- darkforce lightening and...

Plus they made all new CGI character models which look amazing!
Watch and be blown away!

Ashoka starts useing a second lightsabre with a shorter blade-- like a wakisashi- in addition to her main sabre.

I am, though I missed last night's episode. That last three parter, I'm guessing it showed the Jedi totally misinterpreted the prophecy of the one who would bring balance to the force.
