I had a blast with last night's episode. Full of great action, and the intro of the ARC's. The red arc's a squad leader or officer of sorts which is neat to know. Shows a hiearchey and excuse for the colors/dots.
I love the voices personally. I'm hearing around the net that people disliked Anakin's and said he was too whiney, but I think that's important to his character, and that his voice was pretty close to Christensen's. I like the "Snotty" aspect to his character where he feels held back and that others are jealous of his quick adaptation to the Jedi lifestyle, and mastery of the Jedi arts. He's cocky and arrogant, and that plays well to the character overall I think. Whiney dialogue and all.
The only complaint, if it's even that, which I had for the toon is, and this is an EU complaint overall.
Once again, the EU have said basically F it to the established continuity. My case in point this time is the Republic Gunships which seemingly were dropping from space. These ships, in the FILM even, are established as not having doors that cover the cargo/troop deployment area. Only the 2 doors that swing out and back that cover the rear most portion are there, and actually have a small missle rack mounted in them.
Why the Clone Wars writers opted to make these space-worthy craft instead of simply repulsor-lift atmospheric craft, I dunno. They contradicted the film though completely because you can see inside the Gunships in E2 pretty clearly, and see there's no doors to cover it. It's also a contradiction of the Incredible Cross Section.
Either way, it was great and that's all just minor stuff, but it's a thing EU does that is frustrating to some. I mean, just do a little research, ya know? Would an Acclamator Class cruiser coming into the Atmosphere to deploy the Gunships been that bad? Oh well...
Overall, great, and here I am at 7:35 anxiously awaiting chapter 3! This is great, and I hope and pray I'm able to get all of them on DVD somehow so I can watch them all in order and not have to worry about all this downloading crap online.
