I have to know how to spell it to look it up. People never think of that.
And shouldn't this topic be under 'Clone Wars Era'?

Yeah, why did no one notice that?

And Dictionary.com will give you related spellings if it doesn't recognize a word.

Filoni just does what asked. He must be asked to do something stupid, adds a few touches of his own, sends it out, and then goes home.

He's given an idea by Lucas, he tailors that idea to the fans, Lucas comes in and chops 90% of it out, then the -remaining 10% seems half-hearted because Filoni can't actually do much besides what his boss says.

...That was a stupid idea, in my opinion. Leave him out of Star Wars! All he did was wave a double ended shiny stick around and then get brutally cut in half.

Also, it's animated. Animation is obviously aimed at younger groups.

Western animation, typically...you might not want to test that on anything from Japan though, ner vod. And even the Western Animation thing is kinda shaky (Family Guy, the Simpsons, etc.).

I do think that TCW does have a  younger demographic in mind, though. Which makes some of the choices in the show a little...questionable. (Squicky interspecies romance anyone?)

Also, I'd complain about there not being any commandos in TCW, but let's face it, they're too awesome for this show. And if there were commandos, they would just end up dying like everyone else. </bitter>

I know that theres death in war but, the shear amount of death when it comes to the clones in the series you'd think their wouldn't be any clones left or very little.

For once, I agree with Filoni. Would you want to see the man who finds Jar-Jar amusing overseeing a story about Delta? How about said man's daughter, a woman who has no professional writing talent and has written some of the worst Star Wars in recent memory (Darth Maul returning) writing the complexities of Delta? Do you want one voice for all of Delta, with no effort to distinguish them? While I do feel that Filoni is a great director (He gave us 'Rookies' and 'Umbara', two episodes/arcs which are better than most of GL's Star Wars), he is surrounded by moronic jedi worshippers who have bad ideas, and they are his bosses. While Filoni himsekf would do an awesome Delta story, It would be messed up by GL and co.

Hell, that's the issue with the whole show. In season 1, Filoni was supposed to be in charge, with George taking a back seat. Then GL began taking over, and now the show is crap. We went from 'Trespass' to 'Nomad Droids'.

And THAT my friend is the ongoing downfall of the Star Wars franchise...


I have to be honest my friends...my passion...even my interest in Star Wars is waning in a big way.

Anyway, to be honest George Lucas is the man whose bad ideas broke Stephen Spielberg's back (see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull....wait, no, bad idea).


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

If things don't change soon, I expect to see a mass departure from this fandom.

People get bored of the same old books by the same old authors. Sure, movies would alleviate some of the boredom,  but still, Lucas will, at some point, look up from his multitudinous wealth and realize his fanbase is gone.

Just thought I should mention the likes of "Beast Wars", "Avatar: The Last Airbender", and the entire DCAU (Batman/Superman Animated Series, Justice League/Unlimited, Batman Beyond...) as really good examples of animated series managing to tell intense, mature storylines, while still being kid accessible.

Hell, that's the issue with the whole show.  Filoni was supposed to be in charge, with George taking a back seat. Then GL began taking over, and now the show is crap.
Have you ever read the original plans for the show?  They're nothing like what it ended up being.  Instead of throwing Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka from one battle to the next, it was going to be about a Kel Dor (Plo Koon species) Jedi Master with a young Togruta Padawan (who became Ahsoka) traveling the galaxy together as he tries to train her to Knighthood in the middle of the Clone Wars.  It was going to be a lot darker, with more of a grim look at the clones (ala RepCom), a lot of more brutal back-stabby politics (like the Dark Horse comics did), refugees and a look at the lives ruined by the war...basically something waaaay different then the weekly adventure format.

...except Drew kind of abandoned ship for TOR... :P

Honestly... it won't happen.  It won't.  There's just too many people who're attached to it as a brand.  They'll suck up whatever latest turd Lucas or his people crap out, just as long as it has the nice and shiny "Star Wars" logo on it.

I'll tell you why your wrong: Newer generations.

As it gets older, SW is going to have fans that didn't get started on the original, good stuff, but the crappy, new stuff. That will be their nostalgic springboard into the good stuff, and it's rare anyone recognizes their nostalgia as something crappy.
