Nice episode "Shadows of reason"

Funny to watch  ;D

Maul ambition is growing bigger as he is an improvised tyrant for Mandalore

About Pre Vizla death, it makes Death Watcha looks headless, alienated to a different band (sith, dathomir, renegade warriors)

Only one flaw in the combat between these dudes: Maul could be more kung fu proficient, but it is not credible he kick pushed
so powerfully Vizla in the air, while he was high flying and at full speed of his jet pack.

For the upcoming battle among Sidious and the horned brothers,
I can say one of these devils would die, if not both; perhaps Savage Opress
will get stabbed many times by Palpatine.

As Maul returned to life, however in the end of Episode I, Windu said they made an analysis of his heart... and why they didn┤t incinerate the body, where it was buried or preserved?

Palpatine can collect the Maul and Savage bodies to clone and manipulate them, as Force Unleashed proposed this use of
Starkiller Galen Malek.

Maul is building a team based on fear, Vizla doubts of his project in the end of this chapter.

Action was ok, but showed with haste (sometimes fights were na´ves, like kung fu operas)

when Black Sun and Jabba are free from menace they turn in Maul┤s favor. (the gangs alliance looks questionable)

Seems for credibility, Mandalores must left garrisons in both places (a detail missing in the episode)

Hope if they use Dengar again, they won┤t show him as a runner. Always that guys in turbant vendage seemes mysteryous.

Agree, more action than expected
as the droids become acrobats and fighters

Gascon looks a bit like boss nass
but with a more serious voice.
He could be of some use for further episodes
but as a supporting character.

Funny Walrus Man on Missing in Action   ;)
they need to include Hammer head, greedo (vintage versions too)

This chapter explores poverty, as they tried to depict an undevelopped planet.

Coackroaches, flies, trash gave the ambience of crisis to that galaxy far away,
and so it brought the internal crisis of Gregor...
He wanted a new life (a dream)
It is a blink to "Complaint of the Homeless" by Allen Ginsberg.

The Vietnam vet who returns America to wipe cars┤ windshields.

Action on season 5 is slowering down

the episode 10 was clumsy

children aimed, cause movement seemed a mario bross arcade
action always in haste, without letting appreciate combat.

Hondo vs Grievous

Hondo is a more complex character than Grievous, whose lines are the plainest of the galaxy far far away.

Grievous is always depicted overacted, and with an uncontrolled fury in almost silent videos.

General Grievous is the representation of violence without intelligence. Filoni needs urgently to make him kinda
a Bane from DC Batman, that is a subtle villain.

Today the cyborg and Ashoka watered down in their fight, specially the padawan who looked weary.

Returning to Hondo, he is better balanced, seems inspired in Sir John Falstaff from Shakespeare plays;
sometimes funny with wit, others with the lust of flirting. His new attire and wardrobe let him get that evolution.

Filoni should drive more attention on Hondo, and why not? profit from his lizard monkey too. So Filoni, give the pet a name, search a Greek, macedonian, arabic name which fits the series.

About weequays

complex drawing, two colour faces with cartilage and flesh, muscular pirate was like Pote Snitkin.

Hey guys, what about Mara Jade character?

Do you think Shanon Mc Randle needs to appear on episode VII?

Today I finished "About the Sublime" by Casio Longinus
an aesthetian whose book continues in certain way
"Ars Poetica" by Quinto Horatius Flacus.

Longinus is strongly inspired by Demostenes and Plato.

This was an episode more for kids, the fight of Ashoka and Hondo was naif: too many jumps and very few techniques.

The engenneer professor droid looked curious, a brand new animation, that could have a reminicense to Dexter┤s bar on Coruscant.

But deep inside the naivitÚ of the episode is a bit of darkness when the human youngling killed one weequay by short circuit of the light saber.

The robot told it was due the circumstances, but at last, even younglings could be forced to kill.

I think as animation got haste at the end of the episode, to end a fight or close the emission, the pirates were bouncing on the walls, the corridors like puppets or plastiline figures who never arrived to break apart.

This need revision, 3d animation is not perfect yet, better they simplify some scenes, instead of lots of marionettes they couldn┤t handle properly.

Casting the original actors Mark, Carrie and Harrison would be a nice hommage to us the original SW generation of fans.
We the X Generation deserve that

I am just watching "Tipping points"

What I can first comment is that

I liked the pterodactils, flying saurious....
they are beasts more colored than ever
but their wings look a cross between buterflies' and bats.

The paintjob on body and wings gave those dragons distinction.

The huge burden saurious in the market, the one which crashes two battle droids
is like a large dewback, nice try this time on purple.

The rest is kinda cartoon style, lots of details are improving now
but designers must focus on the heads of humans to insuflate
more realism. Some angles of Steela head are chooked.

I agree Onderon episode was slow, however it recreated some feautures of the rebellion

-Emphasis on women leadership
-Commandos and soldiers on camping with less access to facilities like complex bases or stations.
-Guerrilla aspect of rebel teams.
-Training could show basic teachings (where to hit and why, how to hold detonator, etc.)
-The word and concept rebellion is floating in the galaxy far far away, while the republic is busy fighting separatists.
