The Clone Wars - Season Five Discussion Thread

<< < (56/69) > >>

Nicklab:
The Cato Neimoidia segment served a couple of purposes.  First, to bring in the new Jedi Interceptors as well as the Tri-Droid Fighters.  IIRC, this is the first appearance in the series for both.  And then we saw the Buzz droids, ala the space battle in ROTS.  But it seemed that Anakin and Ahsoka's presence there was only meant to serve the purpose of bringing Jedi back to Coruscant who may not have been involved in the Temple bombing. 

Regarding Lara's presence at the Temple?  I think it was very clear that Lara was an anti-war protestor (or something along those lines), and she used her husband to promote the anti-war / anti-Jedi agenda.  This episode was very much about the growing distrust of the Jedi because of the prolonged nature of the Clone War.

The investigator droid was a funny nod to David Caruso on CSI Miami with the overly dramatic, halting dialogue.  Add in the visor flipdown, and Filoni & co were definitely having a bit of a laugh with this one.

McMetal:
Ah....ok, I was wondering who the CSI Droid was a parody of...makes perfect sense now. Ha.

We've definitely seen the Droid Tri-fighters before, they were in the arc where Ventress got betrayed by Dooku. Not sure about the Jedi ships though, seemed familiar somehow.

Agree the writing was weak, their whole investigation was based on someone observed working around the crime scene, which is part of their normal duties anyway? It's not like the guy was an accountant and was just hanging around the hangars for no reason. Total alien profiling! Sure, blame the big freaky cyclops dude. Couldn't have been his improbably hot wife, right?

I don't even get why everyone thought a Jedi was responsible when there wasn't an iota of evidence to indicate this.

The Barriss Offee cameo was cute, but really for me, the coolest thing in the whole freaking episode were those armored enforcer dudes standing in the background in the Cin Drallig scene. WTF were those bad-asses?!?! They looked like some kind of heavy armored Jedi super commandos, or some kind of weird Jedi-esque Royal Guards.

They would have made for one of the coolest action figures ever in this line, IMO.  :'(

Indeed.  I thought they were pretty cool, too.  But with the demise of the Clone Wars animated figure line, I guess it'll never come to be.

Qui-Gon Jim:
Nice Raiders-esque nod in the opening.  As I was watching, I felt all they were doing was ripping off RotS, and then they paid it off.  Nice.

Scockery:
Preview for Episode 18 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiIyHaXnG6Y (there's another preview, too)

I think I've guessed part of this story, but I cannot remember if there's spoiler tags here.
