Some ok elements, but kind of dumb.

LIked Wolfe's duds though.  He'd make a slick new Clone.

For sure. A simple helmet swap and recolor of the existing figure's deco would be a pretty easy double-dip for Hasbro.

I liked this episode pretty well, and I can't say that I've thought any of this season's episodes have been bad or anything, but I do have a hard time getting too jazzed about them anymore.  I still like the show and everything, but I can't say that there have been a lot of episodes lately that were "man, that was awesome" type of shows.  It is nice having weekly Star Wars though.  I know they had originally planned 5 seasons, but since it has been successful there may be more, but I hope they don't hang on too long either.

I think what's lacking in the series is any kind of emotional investment from the audience.  We know where the main characters have come from, and we know where most of them are going.  Anakin, Obi-Wan, Padme, Yoda, Dooku, etc all have to hang in there in order to maintain the continuity that brings the characters to Episode III. 

The only key characters who could face that kind of jeopardy are Ahsoka, Rex, Asajj Ventress and Savage Opress.  We saw something like that with Captain Tarpals a couple of weeks ago.  But until someone like Ashoka or Rex starts getting killed, I think the series is going to be lacking in drama.

To me, the formula's simple...  Warrin' and whorin' but never borrin'.  Landing at Point Rain is, for me, the benchmark that they've never really reached with anything since.  Close at times, but not quite.  It's a massive galactic war, and they avoid it too much. 

I want to see Clones...  at war... 

And since Star Wars is in the title, I'd like to see more of this take place in space too. 

Starfighters, **** blowing up, Clones dying, Clones killing droids, Clones going crazy with their skills, Seppie leaders destroying Clones (Playing up the "heroes on both sides" thing is always fun to see when the heroes are the seppie leaders), planets being devastated by the war.

3PO/R2 in an Alice in Wonderland type thing, meh...

If only they can get Peter Serafinowicz to voice him again.  His one funny bastard!

Hmm...  so Savage is searching for Maul... and Maul is ending up on the CW 2012 packaging.  Anyone else think that's pretty much a guarantee that Savage is going to be finding Darth Maul in Season 4 of the animated series?  Or an animated series Maul finding his way into the line?  :D

Can I say "I told you so" now?  :P

So putting Vader in a black suit is how Palpy cheated death?  I don't buy that, but whatever.  Hope Maul's reintroduction doesn't suck as bad as this season has been so far.

I had always took that line that way...Palpy cheated Anakin's death by keeping him alive with the Dark Side...there is no way he survives otherwise

Which begs the question...why didn't he just off himself?  What did he have to live for other than pure hate of killing any remaining Jedi

I think Anakin explained that to Padme. He wanted to reinvent the Republic so it wasn't so corrupt. It would be lead by a wise ruler.

I kind of figured that too...  Remember Palps coming up to Ani and touching him for some reason?  I always figured he was doing something all Sithy with him.

I blame the EU for all of this. (It started with the Emperor coming back in Dark Empire...NO ONE REMIND LUCAS OF THAT...)

All we need is for a post ROTS resurrection of Grievous and we can right off anything that Obi-Wan ever did. Failed to Maul, failed to kill Anakin, failed to stop Luke from getting maimed by Vader, EVEN IN DEATH YOU FAIL, KENOBI.  (Or at least, from a certain point of  view).

Found this - http://www.usatoday.com/life/comics/story/2011-10-11/darth-maul-returns/50736578/1 - on Scum, too... sorry for the untidy appearance of the link, I'm still trying to figure out how to properly post links on these new forums.

AAAH, HE'S BACK!! ;D I know there's that risk that his backstory will be totally effed-up, but I, for one, am totally excited!

Based on the picture, I'm guessing Filoni used Maul's appearance in the 'Visionaries' comic where he's a cyborg as the basis for the character model.

Isn't the cheating death ("a power only one has achieved") line a reference to Qui-Gon communicating to Yoda through the Force?
