It was the two nicer episodes after that disastrous Ep 17 in Naboo.

I love space battle, so I was cheering Ashoka in her 1st try as pilot leader, poor little one  :), the next Ep, well, I love Cloninni chapters as well, pretty little Twilek, the Clone was attached to the little one, probably he will have a son like RC Darman of Omega squad if he survives the odds  :)

Tonight's episode was pretty mediocre when compared to the first 2 in the arc. I thought the Droid Bombers were cool - another nice nod to the OT. Mace was good, as were his troops but the rest of the characters were boring.

It was nice to see Mace, but tonight was hugely anti-climactic and hugely pointless.  That bridge?  You've got air support... and space ships that have established air superiority... so what matter is a bridge to Minas Tirith?  I mean Ryloth City?

Just watched Liberty of Ryloth, yeah the bridge thing was WTF. Bridge on... bridge off... bridge on... etc. Could have use a ship to get in. As for Mace, the force was strong with him.

Nice Episode, Windu is one of my favorite Jedies.
Nex Ep cool to see Aurra Sing (But I would prefer her in an event with Ki-Adi-Mundi & the Jedi Tusken father/son Sharads ....
Can't help to notice that they are re-using the same actor's voice of Dukoo for the Blue guy  :P

I enjoyed the end of the Ryloth trilogy, but agreed on the bridge stuff.  Mace did come off as pretty cool in the episode though I thought, and I liked the use of the AT-RT walkers.  It seems like this series has done a good job of showcasing a lot of the vehicles from the prequels and making them look cool, as we just got short glimpses of them in the movies.

The season finale, hostage crisis, looks like it could be pretty cool.  Definitely looking forward to it.

I liked the idea of the plasma bridge, actually.  Ryloth till then had been shown as kind of a backwater lame world, but the city they were assaulting was clearly a more modern and sci-fi looking place, and I thought it was pretty interesting...  The greed thing that wound up keeping the bridge open/up was interesting from a story point of view too.

But really I thought the plasma bridge was a cool piece of technology...  Much better than them using some kind of drawbridge type thing.  This seemed much more of a positive sci-fi explanation to me, as to why they have a bridge for protection into the city... 

I thought the whole 3-parter was good.  They're really whoring the new Clint Eastwood Duros...  I see Aurra Sing is in this week's episode too.  Interesting for sure.

Newsarama has a little teaser video up for this week's season finale of Clone Wars, looks kinda neat.

Thanks for the link Brian...

I'm liking him, a LOT.  I'm liking seeing Sing coming up, and generally these other badasses, and what appears to be an episode of pure violence and evil ****.  I like it.  Seems like they want to go out on a more adult note for the season and I couldn't agree more.

Overall I'd give season 1 a solid B+.  I still think the concept of Anakin having a Padawan is completely asinine and she annoys the hell out of me.  The greatest that is the rest of the stuff far outshines anything Ahsoka ruins.  There is so many cool little things happening all over (like 2 weeks ago when one of the cruisers got shot down coming in to the city) or this week and the inclusion of Aurra Sing.  When random R5 droids pop up or some dude we saw in Episode III is in the background or those cool hybrid Y-wings.  This is the story of cool likeable Anakin which makes his fall in Episode III all the more tragic, to me at least.    What is also neat is there is really a lot more to tell, and the idea of a live action series next year has me as giddy as a schoolgirl.

That season finale was awesome beyond all reason. I dug the bounty hunters, the Senate Guards, the Droid Commandos, and all the dark violent stuff (the bunny droid getting shot made me fall off the couch laughing my ass off). Cad Bane is excellent and I even liked the little fish guy. Like Jesse said, they're whoring the **** out of him, but it is good to see that he'll continue to play a big role in Season 2.

Great, great stuff. ;D

Hostage Crisis was pretty good, yeah I laughed when that bunny droid got shot.  ;D

Bane is pretty sneaky & bad ass.  8)

A long wait till next season, hopefully it's as good as the first season.

I think the season was great.

And whereas I am curious to see where the Anakin/Ahsoka thing will go and end, I really like her and she doesn't ruin anything AND I think kids really like her and this Cartoon Network show is very much for kids.
