Stuck through to the end of this week's episode but it was pure BS.  The dialogue is crap between the droid and the little gruy from Men in Black.  The series has really been a let down for me at this point.  They've really taken it to a point where I think it'll be hard for me to enjoy it anymore short of a complete u-turn.

Kind of a head scratcher...did they envision this would play out differently when they shot it, I wonder?

I didn't hate it as much as others, but I agree it wasn't the best use of my time. Still, I prefer to stuff like this over seeing the obligatory Separatist villain of the week clown the Jedi with more half-assed schemes. That stuff is way more played out, IMO.

I am hopeful that the more screen time they get, the better our chances are of an astromech BP, complete with mini-Gascon.

For an episode filled with nothing but dialogue, you would think they would amp that part up. The little colonel guy is somewhat acceptable being that he's supposed to be gruffy, but the pit droid? I hope we see that thing get blown up by the end of the arc. ;D

It's funny, the featurette for this episode has George sitting at the head of a table and all the writers doing their thang, I guess. The writer being interviewed said, "George said he wants to do an episode where -" At that point, I would have imagined they would have all hushed him. I don't know, I'm not sure why I think of George's input on this series at this point, with it turning into such a stinker.

Darth Maul and Mandalorians, pleeeeeeease be the next arc!

I'd laugh if the writers all rolled their eyes and swore under their breath.

Hate to say it, but I think the mid-season hiatus (complete with re-runs) will be the next arc.  I think we might have about 1 or 2 more new episodes before the hiatus, with new episodes probably resuming in February.

Nope, the hiatus has begun already. Going by Cartoon Network's site, Revival reairs this weekend then the Onderon arc starts again on the 22nd. 

They've done another mid-arc break like last year. Wikipedia says the next new episode airs on January 5, 2013 (2013-01-05).

That's ok.  I'm already not caring haha.  Poor CW.  I really feel its become a hopeless thing, wishing for a really powerful and still fun episode.

Though, appropriate representation of the season so far...a desolate and empty void. The only episode that mattered this season was the opener, which, if they'd gone by original airing orders, probably wouldn't have aired until next year.

I'd expand the thought by contracting the statement.  Take out everything after "crappy", and up to "half".

I liked the opening arc and most of the lil' Jedi arc was fun, just for the little jedi kids (especially the little wook). 

The rest was pretty meh.  The emo-twiglight stuff with Ahsoka and Lux and the planet of the world's most boring/talented rebels was blah.  I didn't even bother watching the last few droid episodes.  Meh.

Bring on the Death Watch and Brothers Maul.  Maybe (hopefully?) they can inject some excitement back into this show.  We need more Bossk too.  As long as you introduced him, use him (and Aurra and Cad and baby Boba too - even Dengar too for that matter).

I didn't like the opening Maul/Oppress thing.  I just can't get into it due to I just can't get into Maul surviving.

That said, loved the Younglings.  It was the only bright spot of this entire season thus far, to me.

Thumbs up to this episode if only for the cameo by Kenner Walrus Man! The Russian-accented Sullustan short order cook was an odd heel, too.

Gregor looked better with the beard. Gregor in armor is an easy repaint for Hasbro, so look for him never of next never.

Unrelated note, DC Nation is back, finally.

Funny Walrus Man on Missing in Action   ;)
they need to include Hammer head, greedo (vintage versions too)

This chapter explores poverty, as they tried to depict an undevelopped planet.

Coackroaches, flies, trash gave the ambience of crisis to that galaxy far away,
and so it brought the internal crisis of Gregor...
