Grievous' kidnapping of Palps is already in CW 2D, and is pretty outstanding actually. I'm kind of cool with that being the way they go with everything and not stepping on it.
I loved that episode. Grievous absolutely rocked, and the style of the animation seemed to fit Star Wars well.
I recently grabbed the Samurai Jack dvds, and hearing Aku's voice makes me think that is what Lucas was going for with Palpatine's voice in ROTS. The second episode, where Jack lands in the future with all the flying cars looks like AOTC lifted it for Coruscant.
To get back to the thread though, I started season 6 the other night and watched the first arc. I loved it, and told my daughter (now 13, who used to watch the series with me) that she had to check them out. She watched them with me last Saturday morning, and her jaw was just hanging down, she loved it. We burned through the Clovis arc that same morning, and will probably finish the rest this weekend. I know it wasn't everybody's cup of tea, but these cartoons and that toy line hit a pretty nice stride for a while.
