Kinda huh? Not what I was expecting I guess.
I'm already on record that the whole premise is just silly, but if they're going to go there I guess I am in.
I liked the opening logo in red...good touch.
I can never read the credits when the show airs live, but I would bet anything the voice of the weird snake thing was James Hong, the very esteemed David Lopan from Big Trouble in Little China and also of Blade Runner fame. He is AWESOME, great choice.
It felt weird to see Anakin and Ahsoka again. Naturally they happen to stop in for a bite to eat at the exact same restaurant in the galaxy that their Sith adversary just left. Hell, everybody loves that diner - best waffles in the outer rim, right?
I like the opening too where Savage is just randomly strangling some chick for apparently no reason. Did she spill coffee on him or something? And yet he runs away like a little girl from those scary police robots?
Kind of odd cameos for Mother Talzin and Asajj too. So I guess Moms is alive someplace after all. Good, more appearances = higher probability for eventual action figure. And I like that Asajj is taking the time to explore her new alternative lifestyle with the freaky purple chick. They make a cute couple.
The junkyard planet was cool, their backgrounds always are on this show, but I agree it was straight out of Soldier. I guess they could rip off worse movies though. As for Maul? I kind of liked the weird spider legs, but the crazy act seemed a little over the top. I'm sure Sam was into it and all, but all the crying and giggling doesn't really befit a Sith apprentice. Kinda wish he had toned it down a bit more, like with the "revenge" line, that was well done.
But seriously, HOW THE HELL would Yoda and Obi-Wan know Darth Maul by name?!?!
