  • Good episode, with Grievous making a return at last.

    8.0
    "Grievous Intrigue" sees General Grievous starring in an episode for the first time since Series 1.

    This episode brings back Eeth Koth, who was believed to be killed in Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones, when his gunship exploded. Also featuring is Adi Gallia, who will die in a future battle of the Clone Wars, at the hands of Grievous.



    There is some nice combat throughout the episode, with Commando Droids returning. Lots of Clone VS Droid action.....with the clones not going too well against those Commando Droids. General Grievous is still underpowered, not able to beat Eeth Koth without his Magnaguards.



    My Critiscm for this episode is that Eeth Koth was captured, then freed, with nothing major happening. LucasFilm brought a character back to life and now they have to kill him again in a future episode. The fact that ther heroes beat the villians and escaped so easily was a bit of a flaw. General Grievous just didn't think it through,I guess. Anakin, Adi, and Obi-Wan just sliced and diced through the droids and Grievous....until they had Eeth Koth and then escaped.

    There wasn't really a plan from both sides...it was kind of mindless.



    However, good points for the episode are:

    -The Opening scene in which the clones and Eeth Koth fight Grievous, the commando droids and the Magnaguards.....resulting in Eeth Koth being captured.

    -Adi Gallia Vs General Grievous. Short, but enjoyable.

    -The Clones Vs General Grievous. Commander Cody and company taking on General Grievous fist to fist was actually quite enjoyable (and funny) to watch.



    Overall, there are some flaws and predictable parts but nonetheless it was enjoyable to watch.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The Jedi war room includes a number of new Jedi character models, including a Weequay Jedi (labeled Sora Bulq in design documents), a Nikto Jedi (Ma'kis'shaalas, who made a cameo in Revenge of the Sith), a Roonan Jedi (Tukker Val Loo), a new Twi'lek Jedi (Finn Ertay) and a blue Mon Calamari (Eekar Oki). The long-tailed beak nosed Cosian is Terra Sinube, who will feature in a future episode, "Lightsaber Lost." The younglings that Ahsoka Tano tends to will also appear in that episode.

    • This episode is filled with numerous new starship models, including the Recusant-class light destroyer (which made a brief appearance in Episode III), a Republic light cruiser (a new design) and a Jedi ambassadorial shuttle (based on Joe Johnston concept art for the Imperial shuttle seen in Episode VI).

    • Eeth Koth first appeared in a background role in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. The Expanded Universe attempted to kill off Eeth Koth in 2003's Inside the World of Attack of the Clones, claiming he died in a gunship crash on Geonosis that also took the life of Sora Bulq -- another Jedi character who emerged intact in a subsequent source. He is not to be confused with Agen Kolar, another Zabrak Jedi.

    • Newsreel:
      Diabolical defeat! Though Republic victories outnumber their losses, the Jedi have been unable to stop Separatist advances in the Outer Rim. The ever-elusive General Grievous stays one step ahead of his opponents. With thousands of droid armies at his command, the Jedi can never predict where Grievous will strike next... until now.

      The camera angle of Yularen ordering the fleet attack from the bridge of the Resolute is the same angle as Captain Needa issuing orders from the bridge of the Avenger in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
