I pretty much signed up here at JediDefender because it seems like this is one of the few places I can discuss the show without wading through senseless bashing.
Heh... Well welcome aboard TP-LM, and glad you're joining in... I've read some "discussion" elsewhere too, and basically when all you have is people ******** all over it then you don't have much reason to join in... I get if you didn't like an episode and you pop in with "why", but to repeatedly, again and again, state you just don't like the series... What's the point? Say it once and don't come back to the thread is my opinion... At some point you begin looking like a troll digging for a fight.
Anyway, on the WW2 aspect of the show...
Anyone catch the "Allied Armed Forces Radio" kinda thing they had going on with the holo-chick playing music and the Clones listening? Very neat... Reminded me of Tokyo Rose and the like. It'd be neat to hear a Separatist one doing some mind-******* with the Clones or something.
I thought Rookies was outstanding too but I found Rex/Cody doing an inspection alone kind of odd. I'd preferred it being Rex OR Cody with a squad of Clones of their regiment/group doing the inspection... Two seniors going around just seemed odd, but that's more a nitpicky bitch on my part.
I liked Obi-Wan's "That Cody's a good man" line. I LOVE seeing the expansion of the relationships characters have, and how it stings more when Cody betrays Obi... Likewise for next week's epsisode, I loved how Obi-Wan says, "Astromechs are a dime a dozen", poo pooing R2's "death", and Anakin's fist tightening. I find it fascinating how Obi doesn't give two ***** about losing anyone or anything, while Anakin does... Kinda makes Obi out to be a prick, which he sort of is in a way anyway, but I digress.
I thought Rookies was outstanding though and really impressive as a single episode. I'm anxious to see its expansion to the Kamino assault, if there is one. That'll rock.
