  • Duel of the Droids...

    6.5
    R2 falls into the hands of the enemy but manages to send a signal out to Anakin and Ashoka as they head towards a Separatist listening post near a remote planet. Along with the mission to destroy the outpost, the Jedi set out to recover R2-D2 before the enemy can uncover the secrets that he holds. Along with a troop of clones, they invade the outpost and ultimately save the beloved droid before the information falls into the wrong hands. Hindered along the way by R2's replacement droid who is discovered to be a Separatist tool. There is a nice bit of action throughout the episode which makes up for the previous episodes slow pace and we even seen R2's throw down which was a humorous touch. Much better than the previous episode and a good end to the 2 part arc.moreless

    This was a great episode. I really enjoyed seeing Ahsoka in action and stand up to someone as sinister as Grievous. Im glad they stuck with the canonicity of the universe by not having Anakin and Grievous meet. I was worried for a few minutes there. I enjoyed the episode as a whole showing Anakin's devotion to something he sets his mind to. This attachment to objects and people ultimately turns him to the darkside. I like how the show isnt really focused on this as much as it is the road of the Clone Wars. It is really doing it justice after its little mention in episode IV 31 years ago.moreless
  • Anakin continues to search for his missing droid and friend R2-D2. This leads to the discovery of a Separatist base and a deadly confrontation with General Grievous, where Anakin's Padawan Ahsoka will be tested like never before.moreless

    What a follow-up. After my disappointment with "Downfall", this episode makes up for it in spades whether it's some great Jedi action, Ahsoka going up against (and barely escaping) Grievous, some humor at the expense of always stoic Rex, and some obligatory fantastic moments for R2 including a clever one up of an assassin droid. The pace of this one starts strong and doesn't let up, not making a rushed episode but making one that moves well while still keeping up the tension, especially as Ahsoka goes up with the Jedi-killing bogeyman himself. This episode is certainly helped by the fact that something happens in it and that that something is exciting, entertaining, and just plain fun. Obi-Wan may not understand why Anakin would do it all for R2, but we would, making us right there with our heroes the whole time.moreless
  • A fantastic installment to the Clone Wars!

    This was the concluding episode to Anakin's search for the lost Artoo. My personal opinion, it was better than the first part, and it was most definately one of the best episodes yet.



    This episode had a mixture of both humor and action, mostly having the funny moments at the begining and then finishing off with some great fight scenes. One of the best fight scenes so far was in this episode, that being Ahsoka's fight with Grievous. Ahsoka really held her own against the general and it was quite intense. Another fight I feel is worth mentioning is the droid fight b/t R2 and R3. It was soo humorous and R2 shows that he is vicious.



    One thing I do say against it was that it was obvious R3 was a spy. Maybe it was just me, but I figured this out in the episode before. I wish it had been more of a suprise, but what ya gonna do?



    But overall, it was fantastic, and I'm excited to see what the crew will do next!moreless
  • Lotsa action...

    I loved the original three Star Wars movies (episodes IV, V and VI) but was never a big fan of the prequels. So I never watched any of the animated Star Wars stuff. Never knew what I was missing until I just happened to tune into this episode. I love the animation, and I even like Anakin here. He seems more dynamic, somehow, in cartoon form than he did in live action. (Although he still doesn't have any connection to Darth Vader in my mind. But I digress.) Ahsoka's fight with General Grievous is fantastic, but I loved the fight between R2 and R3 even more. This is some great stuff. Now I have to go back and catch the eps I've missed.moreless
