    • Incredible Show

      I watch all the seasons of the Clone Wars thanks to Netflix,and I enjoyed all of it's didn't had the best start,I actually didn't like Ahsoka Tano at the beginning,but through the seasons the show grew more mature and so did Ahsoka. PS Captain Rex has to be the best character in the show.
    • my isues with the season finale

      The season was so awesome but there was to much of the dark side in the Jedi order. The season was too focused on the sith so it was a little hard to understand. It had a lot of action but too many deaths. If the show wasn't about the sith all it had was clones. The Jedi were not in it till the end and even that was mostly sith. They almost always focused on one character and then never have them in a show again. I think the seasons are going down hill. I love star wars and all, but the last season was plain bad. It needs to be thrilling. You always know what going to happen, good guys win and bad guys lose, every time.moreless
    • Grounded by the source

      Watched the first season of this one and got tired by the characters' stupidity. A kid would probably like it. I just couldn't turn my brain off.

      Knowing that our guys would fail miserably at the end didn't help either, there was nothing to look forward to.
    • Wish it wasnt canon

      If this show wasn't canon I wouldt have any problem with it, but now we are supposed to believe this thing takes place in the same universe as the movies. The episodes are all mixed up instead of following one story like the previous show wich is really confusing, especially when you see a character die in one episode and the next episode he or she is standing in the background. The animation is pretty good sometimes but nothing mindblowing. Transformers Prime wich aired on the same channel had way better animation and was a lot cooler to look at. The animation in clones wars sometimes looks really weird and even dusty when you take a closer look. Dooku barely looks human since they took the design from the 2D-show wich was a really strange choice. The characters are forgettable and only a shadow of how badass they were in the previous show. The CIS or the Separatist are a complete joke with goofy battledroids and mediocre lightsaber dualists like Grievous and Ventress. The jedi in this show all fight the same way. Seeing them fight the same villains over and over again without any casualties is some of the worst parts, especially the fights with Obi Anakin and Dooku. Sooo boooring!!! There is never any tension since we know wich characters will die and live is also waaaay to much force choking in this show. After a while its not even that intimidating anymore. This show also make magic part of the canon, wich is not needed and doesn't fit the Star Wars universe.

      For every decent episode there is at least 10 bad ones. The show proudly calls itself "The Clone Wars" but instead focus on politics, bountyhunters and nightsisters rather than the actual clone wars. I mean really, what kid thinks of the senate or the banks when hearing the words clone wars? This show had potential though, now we could finally see what good friends Anakin and Obi-Wan was during this era but no, that never happens. We see these main character so often already that they are not interesting to watch. When it actually does focus on the clones this the writers try their best to make the clones different from each other but no one feels that special, the design on the troopers gets really weird as well to make them stand out from each other, it even goes goes so far as to colour a clone commander like Doctor Doom from Marvel and give him the name commander Doom, that stuff belongs in fan fiction! You wouldt think that this colorful galactic republic would one day become the dark galactic empire.

      The show has a complete disregard for previous lore, even changing the name Korriban to Moraband for no reason. But I guess it doesn't matter since most lore is no longer canon. If I must say one good thing about this show it is the adding of Ashoka, I still dont like that she ended up as Anakins Padawan instead of Obi-Wans. Star Wars is mostly populated by male characters and has lots of room for more new female characters.

      Overall, this show is an obvious cash grab and doesn't add anything too interesting to the lore. Its stiff, boring and I wish it didn't have happened. While the older clone wars show had its own share of flaws its still a much better alternative.

      Oh yeah, and Jar Jar has a girlfriend ......moreless
    • I'm getting bored over here!

      I mean c'mon CN! You've been dragging this horrid show for almost 6 years now! I used to actually like this show, but after all of these pointless seasons, I thought "Does this show even have action anymore?" It's all just about Anakin and his sorry excuse for a padawan Ashoka finding out mysteries and fighting General Grievious or some other villain ( who they have fought about 100,000,000 times now) and then the fight only goes on for like 5 minutes, and then what happens? Everyone survives because that's just how it is and Yoda comes in a gunship and saves the day! *Yawn* Overall, I think CN should just get to Episode III events where BIG SPOILERS Anakin turns to the dark side and kills everyone! I mean who doesn't want to see Anakin slay Ashoka? And that epic fight with Obi-Wan on Mustafar?! Hurry up CN!moreless
