Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Season 3 Review

What an odd season The Clone Wars recently finished. I've come to love this show, which evolved into something cool and fun for Star Wars fans, both old and young, by its second season. But Season 3 was incredibly disjointed, with a very clear split between the first, painfully slow half, and the exciting and rather awesome second half. Things started off great with a two-parter focusing on Kamino and the Clone Troopers introduced in Season 1's "Rookies." These were emotional episodes, and included an epic attack on Kamino led by General Grievous and Asajj Ventress. But then, as if a harbinger of doom, came Jar Jar Binks.

One episode after another focused on politics, trade blockades and other aspects of the Star Wars universe few would name as a favorite.
