I actually liked last night's episode, I was pleasantly surprised by how well Jar Jar works in the animated Star Wars galaxy.
The Rodian stuff was great, too, and it was a cool story. Another character that seems to be far more enjoyable in the animated series (both of them) is Padme. I thought it was funny how Anakin's cloak was in a closet in her ship, and Three-so had to cover that up when Jar Jar asked about who it belonged to.
Another cool part that I got a bit of a laugh out of was when Threepio redirected the battle droids that were looking for Padme and "the Jedi." That was a great ANH nod that also just goes to show how non-battle droid droids are taken for granted in the Star Wars galaxy. One second the bad guys can be chasing after Threepio, and the next they'll just forget all about that and be taking directions from him. Anyways, just thought that was really neat.
Looking forward to new episodes!
