I'm glad these episodes are also going to jibe with the stuff from "Labyrinth of Evil" - the scene in Palpatine's apartment and what we caught a glimpse of in the preview for ep24 with the elevated train were GREAT in the book - I can't wait to see Mace taking on Grevious on the train!

Here's a cute story. I went to cartoon network, but the image isn't working so I'm getting the audio of the entire 23rd show. I am glad I have an imagination, or I'd be quite confused.

We'd make the perfect combination then Kev, 'cause I get the video, but no audio here on my work computer...  :-\

Certainly better than the other (your) way around though.

At first, I got that same "North America" error screen. Torrentspy.com has torrents for 21,22,23. A ton of seeders, too. It's only taking about an hour and a half to download.

I was using that for #22 and it took almost an hour. When I did #23, it was done in 20 minutes.  8)

I also thought the painting foreshadow was pretty keen.  I'm not so keen on the force powers of aliens (ala Saesee Tiin's and Plo Koon's BS Saga Force Effect stuff)  Those powers are never showcased in the movies and they smack of EU crap to me.  So why it is cool to see a Hammerhead Jedi, I think the stuff they had him do was lame.  But that's me :P

I liked the Hammerhead force scream thing, but the explosions on walls, the fist-fighting SBD's, and other things tend to suck a bit.

The all-out saber smackdown with Greivous and his goons was great though.  Real classic saber fighting.

The Clones continue to impress too.  They're great.

Greivous' character was great tonight too.  He really "grew".  The catlike moves, and his twice now poking his head out a window and sorta shocking everyone.  Just great.  And in true SW fashion the bad ass villain goes out like a punk by having his cape tied to a train.

I laughed so hard durring the elevator scene, when Greivous is just running down the wall next to them.

Classic!

I am really continuing to enjoy this series.  Last night's episode was another great one, and I can't wait for tonight's finale (although it is sad to see it end).  I really think it would be cool if they continued Star Wars in this type of arena after the movies.  Like I mentioned in another thread, maybe its the kid in me, but I really get into these episodes and think it would really take off with kids and adults alike if they would make this (or something like it) into a regular series.

The saber fights with Grievous and his guards were great.  I like how this animated series allows some of the "background" Jedi to get a little more attention/spotlight that isn't really done in the movies.  I thought the Hammerhead Jedi was really cool, wish he would be in ROTS somewhere.  I agree, there are a few moments throughout this series that get to be a bit much from time to time...just in a cartoony type of way...but I guess I look past it for the most part because overall the series is so great to me.  Also, like Jesse mentioned earlier, the clones are just too cool in these shorts.  To me, the animated series has done a great job fleshing out areas that maybe weren't done as well in the movies (well, at least in AOTC).  I get a better feeling of the Anakin/Padme relationship, as well as the "good friends" part of the Obi-Wan/Anakin relationship.  That, and all sorts of Clone Wars battlin' action :).  Good stuff, I'll be sad to see it come to an end.

Episode #25 sure has some battles, Grievous and his goon squad still chasing down the Jedi and Palpatine. Anakin saving the day.

I wish the episodes were longer, goes by to fast.  :-\

Must see more...must.
