    Okay, why does this show have such a high rating? I watched it one time when I was sick and Iet me just say, that I will never EVER EVER watch it again. It was just sooooooo booooooring. I think this show ties with ben 10: ultimate alien, dora the explorer, level up and johnny test as one on the most boring shows of all time. But I'll admit, the CGI animation can look good sometimes, SOMETIMES! But overall it's just a very boooooooring show. Okay now I'm gonna end this review because I am just reapeating myself again and again, but you get the idea - this show is just soooooooooo yoknowwhat. I think only compelete geeks would enjoy this show.moreless
  • Worth a watch and then some...

    The technical aspects of the show are impressive (CGI, sound mixing, lighting, and so on), though, sadly, I can't say the same for the writing. 50% of the time we'll get good and engaging story lines. The other half of the time, we'll get mediocre, unsatisfying filler. The voice acting is great all around, except for the character Ahsoka Tano who's voice can be quite annoying, moreover, her character in general (well in earlier seasons) .

    The show also has an knack for rewriting already established "Star Wars" continuity. Now, for the average fan like me, its nothing, but for the passionate "Star Wars" fanboy, they'll most likely "loss their shit," and take to internet forums. I'd personally welcome a season 7 and beyond, and would proudly recommend this show to people ranging from the "nothing's on so I'll watch this" boat to the "I like animated shows" party, and all the way to the diehard "Star Wars" fanatic.moreless

  • If you like the prequels you will like this show, if you hate the prequels, for those who are optimistic you will like this show too :)

    This show is simply star wars, and for that its Great!!!

    The action scenes r fast, exciting, and very entertaining. The animation started out as something with troublesome issues, to pushing standards for CGI on television to a whole new standard. Oh, its sure its not movie quality still definitely, but it's high quality for the sake of television compared to all the crap quality they have on CN now. The show is filled with very like able characters, from the main characters to the villains, side characters, guest stars, etc. One of them i would like to point out is Anakin.

    Anakin in the prequel films was a whiny teenager who got angry every 8 minutes while at the same time showed as much emotion in Attack of the Clones as Kristen Stewart (lol jk she's far worse) . In TCW however, he is a likeable hero who happens to actually an interesting personality, in addition, has an actor who actually does pull off a really good job. The dialogue is a complaint and a compliment I must give this show. The dialogue is good, and there r some really good lines at times, but at the same time, there r a few one liners that don't really go anywhere in general. The dialogue is well done, but it's nothing new. Also, while the music is not near John Williams creativity, it is sure enough very well done and all the orchestral themes are very impressive. Another good thing about the show is just because its animated and more aimed for kid viewers, doesn't mean it has to be kiddied down much. No, this is a star wars show, and for that, it does have few minor curse words, animated violence, death (like every single episode) and at times somewhat dark tones to it. In the end, this show is just plain awesome, the only bad thing really is the poorly structured episode which i think every animated show has had once in a while. The reason I give this show a 10 is because it shows how much I enjoy this show, but in quality, it honestly does not deserve it.moreless
  • Not bad, but not as good as the old one

    This show is not really bad, but it's not as good as the 2003 one.
