Nope... The Malevolence Saga. It makes sense I guess being the holiday weekend and all.

Cloak of Darkness is before Lair of Grievous.

Well my 9 year old son thoroughly enjoyed the episode.  I liked the nods to the OT (as usual).  I thought the Rodian's were really well done.  Certainly not the best, but I think the animated style really suits Jar-Jar.

We really enjoyed the Jar Jar episode.  The humor of this show is what really resonates with me and last night was chock full!

I liked it too.  It wasn't as good as some of the others, but Jar Jar works in the animated context and they made a good attempt at making him sympathetic.  I never minded Jar Jar, really.  I wish they had let him actually rescue Padme from the tower, as it kind of undercut the story, but in the end it worked.

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!

One thing I noticed...since when was Padme's father a Senator? That was said in the first dialogue between her and Farr.

I searched the web. Nothing about him being a Senator, at least not in Wookieepedia:

"A former craftsman of buildings, Ruwee was also a volunteer worker in the Refugee Relief Movement as a young man, where his younger daughter Padmé would later follow in his footsteps.

When his daughters were still young, Ruwee left the mountain village he was born in and took the family to live in Theed, where he hoped there would be more opportunities for Sola and Padmé.

Ruwee, along with his family and thousands of other Naboo, attended his daughter Padmé's funeral, shortly after the Clone Wars had ended. At the time he was a teacher at the Theed University."



The official site had a pretty similar bio on him. ???

A preview is up on the Cartoon Network Clone Wars site for the Cloak of Darkness episode, it looks AWESOME!

Best episode yet by the looks of it!  ;D

My first gut reaction when I heard it is that they confused Padme and Leia

they dont say her father was a senator they just say Farr was a close friend in the senate. Dont have to be a senator to be friends with one you know ;)

its was a pretty good episode, not the best but it had some lol moments.

I really didn't think I'd like an episode that I thought used the weakest links of the prequels, (Padme, Jar Jar, and Nute Gunray) but I was pleasantly surprised by this episode. Hope to see more like it.
