Then again, they're showing all of the new episodes in a row on Saturday.

I have work. :-/

I figured they'd run a marathon of the first season before they started this season, but I guess I was wrong.

Off to walmart tommorow. :P

I really enjoyed last night's first episode, and although a half hour show would be great...it sure was nice having about 15 minutes to watch instead of 3.  This toon just makes the ARCs and Clones look so....cool....for lack of a better word.  The opening sequence was quite nice, and the rest of the episode was neat as well.  I enjoyed the little Anakin - Qui-Gon moment/flashback as well.  I'm really looking forward to the next episode tonight, and hopefully they won't wait too long to release the DVD of this "season".  Part of me wishes they would make this a regular series, it just seems so well done to me, and I know I'd like to see more.  They do a good job of taking a few liberties to make it "cartoony" without deviating too far from the Star Wars world, or making it seem too silly.  Good stuff.  Picked up the first volume on DVD this morning, oh, and they did have those 3 packs at Wal-Mart as well.

I was very skeptical of this all during the first run but last nights episode was pretty swell.  My only beef (and as I've said many times before about EU in general) the forcing of OT references and lines in to the story and the like.  It just doesn't need to be there, and while its a nice nod to the OT, it just seems forced more often than not.

Good, good stuff though...I'd be OK with them doing 1/2 to 1 hour specials or the like for the time between Episodes III and IV, I think that would help flesh out that glaring hole left by Lucas.  I still have no idea why he made the PT timeline like he did.

I liked it.  C-3PO's opening of his robe was a little weird, but other than that, pretty damn good.

Need to find some GIJoe / generic army figure weapons that might work to outfit my clonetroopers.

Umm, last time I checked, Canada is in North America.  Or did my Grade 3 teacher lie to me?

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.

Yeah, those tribal things were wierd.

Decent episode overall. This set up ROTS nicely, I guess.

Good episode tonight...  I liked the idea of seiging shielded cities like that, rather than the fast/furious attacks of the films and stuff...  Another tactic, and neat to show how the war varies.

The battle scenes were good this go-round...  More good clone action.  Greivous/Dooku were cool too.

I'm confused if the battle at the opening was the siege Obi/Ani broke as well...  Same thing, or different?  I dunno.  I liked their leader though, and his exchange with the droid with the macrobinoculars at the beginning.  :)  Very funny.  Another Separatist Leader I guess...

I love this series...  I'd kinda like seeing this continue as well, and with it becoming a half hour series that runs alongside whatever other TV Series the Lucasfilm crew has set up...  Could be really interesting, and both could appeal on different levels I think...  in different ways.

OK, number 22 was interesting. That part with the droid and leader was hilarious. How many?   ;D  Whats with those masked tribal dudes! Ogabooga (sp).

I'm liking what I have seen thus far and really into this line.  8)

I really enjoyed Chapter 23 last night.  The Anakin/Obi-Wan storyline with the tribe is something different, but has been interesting.  The best part for me was all of the action and battles on Coruscant with various Jedi (Yoda, Mace, Saesee) taking part.  Again, like I've said before, they do a good job makes the ARCs/Clones look "cool" in this series.  There is that one part where the clones seem to be overwhelmed, and one of the commanders takes on a number of Super Battledroids on his own, picking up a fallen troopers' gun and taking them on guns-a-blazin'.  I thought it was neat anyways.  Even my wife said last night while we were watching it "its the kind of show where you don't want it to be over" :).  Looking forward to tonight's episode.
