Title: The Clone Wars - Season V
Post by: ARC_Commander_Colt on March 28, 2012, 03:33:40 PM
Well, Season Four is over. Looks like it's time for discussion on S5. What do you want to see in Season five?


Personally, I want:

-Conclusion to Ventress' arc
-Embo and his dog
-More of Rex's doubts from the Umbara arc
-More Fives ARC awesomeness
-Dengar
-Boba Fett
-Rahm Kota and his militia

Being a fan of the SW universe, I didn't like dengar. I think they completely messed him up. I allowed Bossk, but I just can't accept Dengar looks and acts like that,

Same here. I loved those stories about "Payback"
-And a youger, gayer, version of the man complete w/ the same armor and turban that he wears 20-30 years later was incredibly lame.

Otherwise, I would love to see more Embo and his dog, and more Fives, and more.... well, pretty much all of that

Clones. And Deathwatch (AKA: Mandos done right).

Some better dialogue, some better storylines. Aside from clone-centric episodes, TCW is really lacking in these departments.

Overall I think Season I and II had the best mix of action, dialogue, and story. Sure they were lacking a bit in the visual diversity and intensity, but somehwere in Season III the story seemed to slip in favor of fancy effects and "homages" (C'mon, we've had Alien, Godzilla, Seven Samurai, Jaws, Ninjas, Gulliver's Travels, Alice in Wonderland) It's like the team is having trouble coming up with original stuff.

Remember Trespass? That, along with Rookies, The Deserter and a few others is one of the best episodes of the series. You had a cool setting, cool aliens, political stuff that made sense, evil guys, good guys, action, a major protagonist (Chuchi) that wasn't part of the "Big Three" (Ahsoka, Anakin, Obi). And the conflict that was showcased as unnecessary and unfortunate, but unavoidable. Clones were ordered to kill the Talz, and even though you as the viewer knew it was wrong they did it anyway. Plus Rex had some awesome moments, and the Jedi actually negotiated like they were supposed to instead of just swinging a glowing baseball bat around.

If you haven't watched Trespass in a while, go ahead and re-watch it during TCW's hiatus. You'll see what I'm talking about. Season 1, episode 15.

On a related note, what in your guys' opinion are the best episodes of TCW? I'll list some of mine:

[spoiler]Season 1: Malevolence Trilogy, Droids Duology - Downfall and Duel, Rookies, Cloak of Darkness, Lair of Grievous, Jedi Crash and Defenders of Peace, Ryloth Trilogy, Hostage Crisis (Total: 13)

Season 2: Holocron Trilogy, Geonosis Quadrology, Grievous Intrigue and The Deserter, Lightsaber Lost, The Mandalore Trilogy (Say what you want, I liked how they handled Mandalore), Cat and Mouse, Bounty Hunters, Zillo Beast Duology, Fett Trilogy (Total: 20 - As you can see, in my opinion Season 2 was pretty dang awesome)

Season 3: Clone Cadets (I didn't really like ARC troopers), Hunt for Ziro, Heroes on Both Sides, Nightsisters Trilogy, Citadel Trilogy (even though Echo died), and the Trandoshan duology (Total: 11 - as you can see, much less good here. Not really sure if I like the Mortis trilogy or not, cool at some points, bizarre and needless at others)

Season 4: Calamari Trilogy, Umbara Quadrology, Deception quadrology (Total: 11) [/spoiler]

Another thing I really, really really want TCW to do is have some more interconnectivity within the whole show. So far there have been some huge revelations and mind-boggling events (Krell for instance) that the show just doesn't follow up on, or just doesn't acknowledge (Echo, Waxer). Hopefully the establishment of some of these big plots (Mandalore, Savage and Maul) where the issues are still left unresolved will allow this interconnectivity to happen. One can only hope.

How is it that it's empty ruins picked clean, and yet there always seems to be a Sith academy, or Sith archaaeological expedition, or a Sith something there every time someone goes there?

Yeah, I'm confused... why would Bo-Katan be on his side? She's DW, not a merc, so that would imply she's a traitor or Kenobi's... on Vizsla's side now? Yeah, I can't see that, so I'm guessing we'll have plenty of cause for frustration soon...

From the Dave Filoni FB page -

'Hey guys,

Just a quick update before your weekend begins. I recorded some new Darth Maul lines with Sam Witwer today. We normally record the actors in person as an ensemble, but we did this via Skype because Sam is out of the country. I wish I could share details, but you will know morein time.

The rest of the day is booked solid for me. Im about to go into design dailies where I look at all the new and exciting things headed your way. At the end of the day Ill be finalizing all of the clips that were going to bring to Celebration VI. Any requests? How does more Death Watch sound? Maybe a little Republic Commando action? Well see...

Have a great weekend!'

Sounds like we might be seeing some repcom at CVI!

More clone centric episodes are a must, more on their doubt of their Jedi generals like the Umbaran arc.
Title: Re: The Clone Wars - Season V
Post by: Vlet Hansen on July 21, 2012, 08:00:34 AM
There is promise... and I've noticed a general upturn in the quality of episodes in general, even if we're a bit light on the clone side some of the time.

Here's a random picture of Filoni and one of his lackeys reviewing some TCW footage. Y'know pretty normal stuff.

I'm thinking that maybe Bo-Katan and her faction are actually True Mandalorians infiltrating Death Watch. It would explain why they were wearing colors other than the traditional Death Watch black and blue (in fact, Obi-Wan was wearing red!). I know it's a crazy theory, and unfortunately not true, but hey, a guy can dream, eh?

Possibly, but just last night, after posting that, I heard:


DO NOT READ THIS UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SPOILED FOR A MAJOR PART OF THE EPISODE!!!

[spoiler]Do you really wanna know?
[spoiler]You sure?
[spoiler]Okay. Maul may kill Vizsla and take over Mandalore, which Bo-Katan and her people don't like, while the others stay loyal to Maul. Hence, "Maul must really want you dead."[/spoiler][/spoiler][/spoiler]

Brief trailer for Season 5, bad bootleg quality of course.

This season looks to be pretty epic.

Also
[spoiler] Underworld conspiracies, Separatists pressing the offensive in the outer rim sieges it looks like (I spotted Cato Neimoidia), A rebellion on Onderon, R2-Unit Secret Mission, a souring opinion of the Jedi among the public, Maul helping the Death Watch do their thang, conflict on Mandalore, Embo, CLONE COMMANDOS FINALLY (2:04) for those interested, Anakin getting a lil' angry, peoples dying, what looks like Maul vs. Vizsla, and Sidious getting all up in that shizz [/spoiler]

All in all, this season looks beautiful, crazy, action-packed, plot-moving. AHHHHH

1: because sometimes, a commando's gotta do what a commando's gotta do.

So... has anyone seen the season opener?

Pretty kriffin' cool, I say.

I don't want to give anything away to those who haven't and still want to see it.

But, I have three things (i.e. spoilers) I have to get off my chest.

The first is a very minor one...
[spoiler]Hondo saying, "Kenobi, you'll be alone in there with the two crazies... eh.. Okay"  - freaking funny[/spoiler]

The other two are major spoilers that should not be viewed if you're hoping to still see the episode and be surpirsed.

[spoiler]Warning, I said Major spolier: [spoiler]How 'bout Obi-wan cuttting Savage's freaking arm off - Holy Bantha-osik! I did not see that coming.
I loved the kick to his knee; and the crazy unnatural bend it took on. But following through with an overhand slice to take that tattoed yellow arm off at the shoulder...
That was a little paypack for Adi Galla[/spoiler][/spoiler]

And, another major spoiler, [spoiler]Like I said, a MAJOR SPOLIER:[spoiler]I was a little miffed that the brothers from Dathomir were getting chased off planet like a couple scared younglings. -Granted Savage was injured; but Maul was still on his game and full of fury. He had the wherewithall to cripple the jedi's shuttle; but, he couldn't turn around and force-crush Hondo's shriveled head?  Or force-push the lot of them back 10 paces?
It is yet another inconsistent use of the force. But what are you  gonna do... I guess it's tough writing a story where the Superman gets beat by Joe Blow [/spoiler][/spoiler]

That's interesting. I'll have to check out that scene of RotS. (I have a vid clip of just the O-66 kills somewhere).
That would be a big flub on the part of Filoni and Co. (Leland Chee would be ripping his hair out on that one).

I had heard that her death in TCW did squash a previous version of her death at Grevious's hand (one of 'em anyway) that was supposedly in a comic. (Obsessions, I think) - I never saw the comic, so I can't confirm.

I can't imagine that TCW is knowingly (or even unknowingly) violating George's own movie canon. I'd say it has to be something like what Vlet said. i.e. They were just look alikes.

After a while, all them jettise look alike to me

You might wanna watch the Season 4 Umbara episodes - and, in order to understand Season 5's pilot, probably the last 4 episodes of S4 as well.

I would also recommend the Citadel Arc in Season 3, and the two episodes from the Season Finale. The Citadel Arc is just fun Star Wars action, and the last two episodes of Season 3, although they feature Ahsoka are great too, as long as you like seeing the trademark Wookie vs. Trandoshan conflict play out.

The Deception arc from Season 4 is cool too, if you like bounty hunter stuff.

Season 5 so far has had pretty high quality episodes.

So what did you guys think of the youngling episode? I thought the Wookiee was cool and the Ithorian was hilarious.
Title: Re: The Clone Wars - Season V
Post by: H-BOMB on November 07, 2012, 10:15:28 PM
I love Byph the Ithorian.

For an obviously very child-focused and simple episode, I really enjoyed it! It felt like Star Wars, and reignited some of the magic of the Force, and honestly made me feel like a kid again!

Oh there's also a clip of David Tennant's character: http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/11/06/exclusive-clip-doctor-whos-david-tennant-guests-on-star-wars-the-clone-wars

My favorite part was when Byph pointed at a door alone, and then when he saw he was alone he frantically pointed at the door the Wookiee and the Rodian chose!

That was pretty funny.
I did like that episode. (Like H-Bomb said), it showed some of the magical side of the force.
(I liked when the young-Stas-Alli-girl just calmed down; and put her hand out and "trusted in the force, etc.).
I loved how the Crystal temple was on Ilum and it was snow-covered, etc. (like in the 2-D Clone Wars cartoon).

Did anyone see today's episode, yet? It was w/ the younglings again, (which I was not expecting). And, I guess it was OK. I thought it was a bit of a let-down.
-That droid was more annoying than 3-PO.

And Hondo.... [I wish they'd make up their mind w/ that guy. (Sometimes he's a good guy, some times he's a bad guy)]. I get the fact that he's a pirate and all; but, still....
One week he helps Obi-wan fight the Dathomir Duo. Another week he helps Anakin secretly arm a nobel band of rebels. And this week, he so cavalierly orders the death of the younglings.
I mean... Are we supposed to like the guy or not like the guy?

I actually liked this episode more than the last one! I really like Huyang the new droid character too, he was like a mix+mash of Ollivander from Harry Potter, the Doctor, and C-3PO. Plus he could kick butt! (but it may be my David Tennant bias).

I agree with the Hondo criticism though. And with that I'd like to list all the times Hondo has switched sides:

1. He captured Dooku, tried to ransom him to the Republic
2. Then he captured Obi-Wan and Anakin (and tortured them).
3. He extorted and attempted to eradicate a peaceful group of Felucian farmers
4. He sheltered the young Boba Fett, let Aurra Sing and Bossk lay a trap for the Jedi (and then informed Plo Koon about the trap), and made a big shpiel about how Jango was an "honorable" man. What do you know about honor Hondo?! You're flip-floppity!
5. Then he helps the Onderonian rebels by bringing them heavy munitions to fight Separatists with
6. Then he tries to rob and murder a bunch of Jedi Kids
7. Then he aids Kenobi in fighting Maul and Savage

With all that said and done though, Hondo Ohnaka is still one of the best voiced and most entertaining characters on the show. I think he's supposed to play the role of "lovable rogue" like Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, but in order for that to truly succeed I think he would have to be a constant member of the main cast, or at least show up more often. (Although we have been getting a healthy dose of Hondo this season!)

Uhg, and we have to go through three more episodes of the same stupid slapstick humor before this arc ends and we can get back to Maul and Mandalorians and Black Sun. Hopefully the appearance of Commando Gregor can save these droid episodes from utter failure.

Usually I'm optimistic with this show, but they really dropped the ball on this one. The Young Jedi arc, while I initially was wary of it, turned out to be pretty good! Probably due to the rather large dosage of Hondo. But this last one was just blah. That's all I can really say about it.

Post by: Vlet Hansen on January 05, 2013, 05:59:22 PM
Well, we don't need to be worried about the show's treatment of commandos... A borderline amnesiac commando has at least 75% accuracy, way beyond... well, basically everyone else with a blaster in this show, and most of that one handed.

[spoiler]Also, we get a borderline heroic sacrifice right off the bat, although he said he'd be back and he's wearing Katarn armor, so without a body...[/spoiler]
I was pleased. Also, I like the little Hero Moment when he first puts on the helmet and the visor lights up...

For me it basically ran:

The Colonel: Hiya kids! It's time for another half-hour of Bumblius Retardicus and his metal minions!

Gregor: Hi, I'm a Commando. And I'm here to save this entire show.

But yeah. Who's going to get to work Photoshopping Gregor's visor into something usable?

The only thing I had problems with were the CC- rather than RC-, and his rank being a Captain. Unless he was squad leader, he should be a Private. Everything else was amazing.
Title: Re: The Clone Wars - Season V
Post by: Vlet Hansen on January 06, 2013, 12:12:55 AM
The original designation was CC, maybe is tag was out of date or some such? And I'd expect him to be a sergeant, but maybe he was field-promoted? The GAR seems to do that an awful lot...

[spoiler]The thing with the wreckage flying into the station was oddly intense. I was just a tad worried for R2, even though the almighty plot shield was still in effect.[/spoiler]
Speaking of, that's my main beef with this whole series. There's been no danger to any of the main characters besides Ahsoka, and because they're too concerned about ratings and demographics to kill her off, there's still no danger to her! The only characters they've killed off are the characters all the bonafide fans love in this show: the clones. It's getting absurd. But then again, the whole thought process behind multiple soap opera arcs expecting to pull the same ratings is absurd.
This arc especially gave us some really cool moments. Gregor...and...well, just Gregor, but my point remains. Cool things, even in the worst arcs ever.
The saddest part about all this to me is that they DO pull the same, if not more ratings.
Honest appeal here: can I see the phase 2 clones in action? Please? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaase? Please? No? More soap opera? Okay. I'd say I'd quit watching, but we all know that it's not going to happen.

I thought it was great! We have Death Watch doing exactly what they should be. In fact, we might be seeing the fall of the New Mandalorians in this season! Besides, did you expect Vizsla to be a good guy? I also liked the deployment scheme on the Mando ships, very cool to see them all swoop down like that.

Post by: ARC_Commander_Colt on January 20, 2013, 01:31:31 PM
I hate-hate-hate-hate-hate to say it...but I think I'm starting to feel for Vizsla. And definitely, we're gonna see the fall of the New Mandos! From the previews, it looks like Bo-Katan may form her own "New True Mandalorians" for lack of better term. Better than Death Watch, not as good as the True Mandos.
Title: Re: The Clone Wars - Season V
Post by: ARC_Commander_Colt on January 26, 2013, 12:07:09 PM

Title: Re: The Clone Wars - Season V
Post by: Vlet Hansen on January 26, 2013, 03:01:52 PM
Okay, that was a big one.

[spoiler]First off, I suppose it fits that the Death Watch is causing their own disasters here. They always seem to do that... Of course, it'd smack of an uncomfortable amount of fanservice for them to have tried to make the DW completely sympathetic, they are the bad guys, after all. I really do like most of the way Vizsla did things, although the whole "we have an army" thing kinda feels underwhelming with the whole ten or so ships they ever seem to have. The initial bits with the thugs on Mandalore would have been so much better if all the bit part VAs had put a little feeling into it, especially that officer on the dock. He just didn't seem to care about being kicked around. Vizsla's speech was certainly inspiring, and it's always a treat to see them just mop the floor with people (even if it was prearranged this time). There's only one thing that really frustrated me about this one, when he had a pistol or seven at the back of the head of Maul (who I'm liking more and more these days) why didn't he just pull the trigger like he said he would? We know he's vicious enough to do it, did he think he had something else to prove? Also, never ever EVER put two people in the same cell, especially when they're like that. The whole "ancient warrior code" bit with Almec might be a little out of date, seeing as the last time we saw that used was with Mandalore the Indomitable, but it seems like just the kind of thing a Vizsla would do. The fight between Maul and Vizsla was awesome, I love how a non-Force user can hold his own against just about anyone, and I love the range of tools he used, it really shows off what the armor is there for. Of course, in the end, the jetpack just HAD to break >_> The final outcome was okay, I suppose, at least he gave him a good run... (certainly better than three Jedi gave Sidious in Ep3) And of course, the ending with Katan swearing no outsider would ever rule Mandalore was super inspiring, now I'd say we have a legit good guy in the ring to root for. Next part of this conflict will be superb, I'd wager.[/spoiler]
In the end, I'm a lot happier with the way they approached this than I've been with most of this show. It's far more complex than a lot of their arcs, and the treatment of the Mandalorians I think has been well within character. I'm really looking forward to more now!
Title: Re: The Clone Wars - Season V

All I can say is "Holy frak, that was awesome."

I'm already thinking how they tie this canon in to existing canon. Bo-Katan being the "New True Mandos", and ushering in the Traviss Mandalorians we know.

[spoiler]The Maul-Viszla fight was bad-shebs, and just the little details made me smile. Like Bo-Katan helping those kids up. Even if it was part of the act, it was still kinda amazing.[/spoiler]

I'd say it more than makes up for the droid arc.

But anyway, agree with all that's been said about this episode. Good shtuff.

That fight-scene was epic. - It did almost entirely make up for that droid-Arc.

It was also nice seeing Maul do some "Ray Park" on Viz's shebs.
-He knocks Pre's tooth out at one point!

I choked up so bad. Whoever on the Jedi Council voted against Ahsoka totally deserves whatever they got in Order 66. If they can't even trust their own...well, Ahsoka had good reason for leaving. The last scene between her and Anakin was so great, and I thought it was cool when Obi-Wan tried to go after them and Plo Koon grabbed his arm. Funny thing is, Plo was the one who found Ahsoka, so there's got to be a certain symbolism there; he's letting her go.

I just hope that wasn't their way of saying "we finished Ahsoka! The show's over now!" Season Six has been confirmed to be in production, but Cartoon Network cancelled their contract, and while there was a rumor a while back that TCW would be moved to Disney XD, it was never confirmed. I just hope the show continues -- we need to find out what happens on Mandalore, for starters, and we need closure on Rex and Ventress still.

Wha.....? 
-What-the-frik-for????? How can that be?
(I am in utter turnmoil).

As far as the season finale goes, I liked it too. (I missed Plo grabbing Obiwan - I'll have to watch that again).

Although, I still say that there is no way Bariss could have done all that she did, skill-wise.
(e.g. Masking her presence from Ventriss and Ahsoka, taking on and beating Ventriss and Ahsoka, remotely force-choking the terrorist-chick [where do she do that from anyway?], killing the prison guards (w/out leaving a trace), held her own against the Chosen-one for as long as she did). - That was a nice fight scene. I loved how Anakin finally overpowered her w/ a Force-Pin like that.
-And, how about those temple guards with the double-endeds - pretty cool!

And, her rationale for doing all this was completely focked. (i.e. The peacekeeping jedi order, (which I was practically born into), have lost their way; so, I'm going kill them - then, I'm going to pin it all on my one true friend who saved my tatooed shebs on more than one occasion....)

-Where was Luminara in all of this? - She should take some of the blame too. (Obviously she completely failed to adequately train her padawn).

[I think I'm beginning to see why Cartoon Network cancelled the contract]

Now... they didn't come out and show it. But, can we assume that Tarkin and Co. are in the process of executing young Ms. Offee?
(They were so ready to fry Ahsoka; I can only assume the executioner still demmands his due).

I did love how Ahsoka left the order. And, I agree... all of those boneheads who voted her out deserved what they got.
-And, we do still need closure on Rex and Ventriss -and, even that old SOMF-JEDI that was training the younglings.

Not to mention, I need a whole other season to look forward to.

Cartoon Network cancelled the contract due to Lucas being bought out by Disney. Like I said, there's no confirmation one way or another in what form Season Six will be presented, but until otherwise confirmed, it has not been cancelled.

They better continue it.  It just got to be good.  Though, they will probably use that to make Ahsoka survive order 66.

Phew.... I had forgot about that. - That kinda makes sense, I guess.

An, I'm with Tee - They had better continue it.

I think they solved the Ahsoka problem, (w/ regard to RotS). At best she might be a "special guest" character in a few Season 6 episodes. - But, after last weeks's finale; we might very well not see her again. -And, we won't have to wonder why she is not in RotS.
-I realize that they have the same luxury w/ Ventriss too. (She can exist quite happily in the lower levels of Coruscant from now until the Purge (and beyond).

Rex still needs to be accounted for. And, I fear what they might do to him. (They killed every cool clone; I don't see why they would spare him).

Take from this what you will...

As we enter into an exciting new era focused on the next Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming. We are exploring a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming. You can expect more details in the months to come.

As part of this shift, we have also made some key decisions affecting Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Detours.

After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we feel the time has come to wind down the series. While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we're continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen. Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content. In the video below, Supervising Director Dave Filoni offers a peek of what is to come in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

At Star Wars Celebration VI last year, George Lucas gave fans a glimpse at the animated comedy series Star Wars Detours from Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Todd Grimes. Detours was conceived and produced before we decided to move forward with the new Star Wars trilogy, and in the wake of that decision, Lucasfilm has reconsidered whether launching an animated comedy prior to the launch of Episode VII makes sense. As a result, we've decided to postpone the release of Detours until a later date.

We are incredibly proud of the teams at Lucasfilm Animation for creating some of the most amazing animation ever produced for TV. Keep checking StarWars.com for new developments on these and future projects.
There's also a video with Filoni explaining the above, and a teaser from one of the episodes to come, which is quite interesting.[/spoiler]

Well, if it goes to Disney XD, I'll be missing it. Damn you Cable Companies and your high prices for advanced cable and internet! Lol.

Although, it was a good episode. Almost brought a tear to my eye. Although I knew it was gonna happen. The show has kind of gotten predictable. Plus I called it back in 09 that she would be as they say "Put on the bus" and not killed off.

Can't believe it hasn't been mentioned yet....

The show's been canned. Completely.

Oh, you did post it! Don't know how I missed it. In other news, though, Disney has canned half of TCW's animators.

Ditto.

I hated the animation style that made them all look like caricature marionettes.  Was one of the prime reasons I stopped watching completely.

Looks like the Wolfpack gets some awesome new snow armor! They will apparently be doing only the 2 arcs (I think).

Likewise, that got me pumped.
Especially becasue, I've been fearing TCW went Ka-ploo-ey. (along with 1313 and the rest of Lucas Arts).

I can't want for Season VI

That's a preview for a third arc: it kind of looks like the Yoda: Dark Rendezvous novel, with Yoda's cute little ship! :D
