Jayson, you rock! Awesome pics...that is exactly what I was talking about. Jedi T-6 Shuttle - good to know. That thing looks inevitable to be realized in plastic!

I can wait on Xanadu Blood, give us this bad boy next spring! (or the Twilight, that is cool too)

I really liked the first few episodes of season 2.  I liked Bane at the end of last season but after the "Children of the Force" episode I freakin love the guy!  I was almost cheering when he escaped.  LOL!  I don't really analyze these shows at all.  I just sit back and try to enjoy them for what they are entertainment for kids and a commercial for toys.

I'm just happy 8pm appears to be the new time slot for this season. After 9 was just not working for me last year...

I lost the remote to my Video Cassette Recorder so I'll end up missing most of the new episodes.   :'(

Thanks for the link Dale.  Maybe I can sneak some time here at work - don't think I'd have much luck at home with my ol dial-up.  Someday I'll be up to speed on technology.   :)

Good episode tonight...  I thought, as plot/story goes, it was one of the better ones so far in the series.

I liked the Skifio senator...  I liked Anakin's behavior.  I liked the Jedi obviously sensing Anakin's attachment to her.

I also liked seeing Poggle and Lott Dodd some, and Cato Nemoidia...  THat's just the visual stuff though, and really the plot I felt was very creative, threw a curve into the whole Anakin/Padme story.  It really added to their ultimate futures.  It also sets up next week nicely.

After watching the episode last night - I want to know where the rest of the Jedi Council is - are they always on missions while Yoda, Mace, and Obi-Wan stay at the temple?!  I'd really like to see the rest of the council in future episodes, especially Shaak Ti.  I know Ki-Adi Mundi is in an upcoming episode, and I'm really looking forward to that.

Last night was in some ways the best episode yet.  The writing, for a kids cartoon, was leaps and bounds beyond what we've seen so far.  The characterizations of Padme and Anakin, the weakest part of the films, were right on for once.  I loved the classic Hollywood nods in the music and direction.  I love the direction the series is going in.

Agreed. Last night's episode was superb. Easily the best one of Season Two so far and maybe even around the top five yet. They're doing such a good job with Anakin & Padme in this series, unlike in the movies where I have to fast forward through their scenes. :P

Looking forward to the battle on Geonosis! 8)

A good summary of my thoughts on how Padme and Anakin were taken in a direction Lucas seemed incapable of doing.  They actually seemed human. 

It makes you really wonder about the notion (Scott's) that Episode 1 wasn't necessary...  AOTC = Episode 1, and then a "Clone Wars" film that fleshes out the character's deeper personalities, and then ROTS wraps it up nicely.

The toon's proving that the character's development in the movies was largely ignored at the cost of the quality of the story.
