    SW:TCW has IMHO been geared for children and I watch it only for whiz bang and my desire and hope that this show's potential would finally be unlocked with some honest to goodness tension and story arc. After it being mostly mediocre thus far, this episode finally delivered some real action that I cared about. Unlike the new movies which were just a mind-numbing blur of confusing and meaningly storyline and excessive light saber fights and the TV series which which were mostly simplistic and trite lessons in boredom, action that went nowhere and stories that didn't even seem to be in the slightest way serialized, this episode is the crescendo of a story that was built up over time and comes to a head. Also, the action and animation is in a word, incredible. Unlike the recycled scenes and activity that the show has thus far been, there are parts where I actually said "wow" out loud. The attack on Camino is fantastic and reminiscent of old school Lucas. In particular, the water invaders that pierce the hull of the city injecting battle droids was downright chilling. I was really impressed by this and I genuinely hope that maybe, just maybe, the folks at Lucasarts have gotten the memo that we fans have been very nonplussed so far and gave us something to really gnaw on. Bravo! Keep up the good work!moreless
  • Prequel for season one episodes Ambush and the Ryloth Trilogy sets things up nicely...and that was kinda it.

    If you took out the Toydarian segment of this episode and focused purely on the Ryloth conflict, I would have been a really happy viewer. It's not to say there was anything wrong with the Toydarian parts, it's just that they had a "been there, done that" feel. This came from the fact that the season one opener was focused on the same Toydarian King's reluctance to take a side. Yes, this one was about assisting in humanitarian aid and not about choosing sides, but it still felt similar.

    I did like learning valuable aspects of Toydarian culture and it's no wonder that Watto wasn't on his home planet nor around others of his species. I would like to see more Toydarians, but not all their debating. Watto wasn't much of a debater. The King's choice to still help was great and went with the way he acted in Ambush.

    Most people don't like Jar-Jar, but he wasn't that bad in this episode as he was in the first season and he was instrumental at distracting Lot Dott. And who knew such a clumsy guy could stack plates and cups so awesomely?

    On the Ryloth side, Master Di and Cham Syndulla's fight that led to the capture of the Ryloths was short and dirty. We mostly got shots of them losing and Cham turning into his grumpy self. It was still pretty sad, knowing their fight wasn't going to end well. The final stand of the clones to let the Ryloths escape was poetic and chivalrous. And it was just in time for the supplies to be dropped. Not exactly the happiest ending and there were some darker moments in the battle scenes. Overall, not a bad episode, nor a great one. Still enjoyed it and can't wait for more. I wonder how many more prequel episodes will be in this season.moreless
