I realize it would be too violent for this show, but I really, really wish they would show him actually ripping someone's arms out of their sockets. Chewie comes off as too cuddly in the movies I think, I would dig some actual wookie-rage.

They could be Battle Droids... or better yet, Commando and Super Battle Droids. No one cares if a droid is maimed.

And yet one more clip about the Chewie episode(s).  This one has the same "intro" of Chewbacca, but also some behind the scenes stuff with Filoni and Peter Mayhew as they developed the character for CW.

Nice!  I live seeing Chewbacca in the Clone Wars series.  Finally we get to see him beat up some Trandoshans.  I was kind of hoping we would see Wookies taking on Trandoshans in ROTS when they were battling the droids. 

Can a little Han Solo be too far behind?  I know people are going to be upset if he shows up but I wouldn't doubt it.

Hopefully no Han Solo in the CW series however good to see Chewie kicking around Trandoshans.

about episode 19 of season 3: they bring back the concept of anti air craft turrets from the video games, so it was the way the commando droid hit Anakin and Pielīs stap, plus this turret hit the stationed shuttle.

Not a bad episode at all.  The commando droids with the shields were interesting.  Things just keep getting worse and worse for the clones and Jedi...  Sad to see Echo die, but interesting to see Tarkin and Anakin start to agree a little more on some key issues and start building their relationship.  I'll be interested to see how they're all going to escape in next weeks episode.  Obviously we know at least three of the characters make it out and into the later films ;)

Obviously Tarkin and Anakin agreeing as they do on screen is part and parcel with the fact that Tarkin will become a major player in the Empire in his own way as will Anakin do so in his way.

Hopefully means some elaboration on Tarkin in the series will occur,he's a character who can be expanded on easily and not having a major Canon consistency to have to be adhered to.

I would have appreciated Ahsoka somehow dying in this arc, being that this place is freakin' hell to get out of... maybe a dramatic stand-off where the warden captures her as a hostage and holds her at gunpoint in front of Anakin... but, obviously, she's in the Season 3 finale... ::)

I didn't have much of a reaction either way to this EP. It didn't strike me as particularly good or bad, just sort of filler.

Dooku makes me laugh. You're trying to secure information that could turn the tide of the war, and you entrust the whole operation to a bunch of droids and that goofy ass warden? Damn right that needs your personal attention.

They'd be better off just nuking the planet from orbit to insure that the Republic never got that information either.

Lots of good toy fodder from this arc though, would love some animated probe droids and those commando battle droids with the shields.

The Citdel would make for a hella cool playset too.

I think it's getting old though that Dooku keeps saying (something like) "turning the tide of the war." He's said the very same thing in a couple of episodes already.

It was an interesting episode, but at this point they're just stretching it out as filler. We already know who lives in the end, so I don't think there's really need to keep this arc going on for so long, unless there's a surprise planned for the final episode of the arc.

Whether it's intentional or not on the part of the writers, I chalk this up to the fact that Dooku and Sidious are truly just playing both sides for their own gains. They really don't care who "wins" and if you think about - Sidious really doesn't want the CIS to win, he wants to be in the position as chancellor to reform the Republic into an Empire and become Emperor - it would have to work slightly differently if the CIS wins the war....

So the CIS is really just making enough "noise" in the galaxy to make the war drag on, which in turn allows for the Republic to point the finger at the Jedi for causing the war to linger. I thought the fact that Tarkin pointed that out in this episode and that Anakin agreed with him was probably the most important piece of dialog in the entire episode.

Given the sheer numbers of battle droids and the ability to produce more daily compared to the growing time of clone and training time of Jedi, the CIS probably could've won the war if the whole conflict hadn't been engineered by the Sith.
