Ha, the droid fight was neat & droid poppers! Those are pretty cool, never seen them before.

You've never played Republic Commado? :P

I thought this two part episode was pretty weak overall.  The fact that Goldie was a spy was way too damn convenient and it bothers me that Grievous and Anakin have so many run ins.  They set up the scene in ROTS as if it was the first time Obi-Wan and Anakin had met Grievous.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

They didn't meet though.

Dave Filoni said they never will until ROTS.

As for Obi-Wan, it's not implied in ROTS that they've never met.

Did Anakin meet Grievous?  I didn't think he had yet...  Not in the toons anyway.

I actually thought Goldie was a spy in the first episode so the "convenience" didn't really bother me.  It did seem, afterall, like it was doing the opposite of what they wanted all the time.  I thought they were maybe going to set Goldie up as Ahsoka's future droid but it just seemed like they were going out of tehir way to make Goldie seem like he was doing stuff on purpose.

I liked both episodes really, but they weren't the best.  I think they were as good as the Malevolence storyline though...

Droid poppers were indeed introduced in republic Commando, Dale.  They'd basically slow down some of the bulkier droids so you can take them out.  They also brought shields down on Destroyer Droids IIRC.  They were called "EMP Grenades" in RC though I think, not "Poppers".

I liked that SBD's shot at them while the moron regular droid picked it up and shook it.  Somehow the regulars seem smarter than SBD's on some level, but not in that sequence.  :-\

For anyone who has or will be picking up the deluxe (or blu ray) version of the Clone Wars movie, in the special features area there is a feature called "The Clone Wars: The Untold Stories" which features a lot of episodes that have not only aired, but will be airing later this season as well (with footage).  Minor spoilers, if you don't want to see anything before it airs.  Also, if you're lucky enough to have a blu-ray player (not me, yet), it appears you can get some glimpses of some of the live action movies in blu-ray quality.  I wonder if we'll see blu-ray releases of the Saga next year?

Anyone know if the DVD or Blu-Ray comes with an iTunes digital copy?

I enjoyed the fight between Ahsoka and Grievous. I laughed when she cut Grievous' hand off. He's really got to watch that. They did a good job balancing making her seem like she didn't have a chance but still getting away. It was also enjoyable when she dropped into the fight at the end and took out the droid starfighters.

Of course Artoo got to kick a little butt. At first I thought it was going to be cutesy, but as soon as Goldie started to fall and fired his grapple onto Artoo, I knew Artoo was about to cut him loose and send him to the Maker. Loved Anakin's last minute save. Cliche, but welcome.

Nice!  I'll definitely put the blu-ray version on the christmas list.

A pretty ho-hum episode. A few brief OT and OT concept references but otherwise it was a big "death of Jar Jar" dick tease episode. The 4 legged Crab Droid, the Neimoidian Transport, and seeing Gree and the 41st Clones were cool though.
