There were a few parts I would have changed, but overall it was pretty awesome.
-Same here. All-in-all, I really liked it. But, there were a few things I'd balk at. (But then, there always are - so that's not really saying much).
I just wish that it had been longer.
I wholly agree. They should've scrapped half of the previous episode and doubled this one.
I will say that I am looking forward to Season 4 on DVD. (I just hope they package it something better than a paper-sleeve).
[spoiler]-Which seems to be the trend, after the Season 3 DVD let down[/spoiler]
On another note, any remarks on which side would win in a rematch of Ventress/Kenobi vs Savage/Maul?
That's a good question. I would have to say that the "Sons of Dathomir", (in my best Bela Lugosi voice), would win. And, it would largely be due to the efforts of Opress. -He is a monster whose sheer ferocity, (not mention fortitude with the double-ended vroom-stick), would turn the tide to whomever's side he's on.
I can picture Maul being a little gun-shy; as he remembers the big fall he took at the Battle of Naboo.
Unfortunately, Ventress (while sometimes depicted as a worthy opponent), is in truth a punk.
She high-tails it at the first sign of trouble. And, I predict that she will do the same here. (Which would basically, leave Obi-wan to go it alone).
Obi-wan is the man -No two ways about it. He can rise to any occasion and best anyone in the galaxy, (IMO). For a Jedi, (that supposedly try avoid inflicting life-threatening injuries), he has cut and maimed more people than a busted combine.
If Mace had him on his arrest detail when they went after Palps; Kit Fisto would be alive today. (And the Emperor would one dead dark lord).
That being said, the combination of Maul and Savage would be too much for him.
I can picture him taking Maul’s head this time, (like he lamented in the show); but Savage would over power him in the process.
-This reminds me of my major beef with last episode…
[spoiler]By the Hammer of Thor, why would Yoda send Obi-wan to face Maul alone?
“Trust in the force, we must” – WTF is that!
There was absolutely no worthwhile reason they gave for Obi-wan to have to "finish (by himself) what he started so long ago." –utter nonsense.
That’s the kind of outfit that little green puke heads up? He has the clarity of vision to see the return of a former Sith Lord, (that killed Qui-gon, mind you). And, he decides that Obi-wan has to face him alone. He won’t send any other Jedi with him? It is better to trust that force might send a former dark accolade and Dooku’s assassin/ apprentice, turned Night sister, turned Bounty Hunter w/ a heart of gold, to assist him?
Mace, (and Obi-wan), should have Yoda arrested for wanton disregard of his subordinates.[/spoiler]
