STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "SACRIFICE" REVIEW

When it was revealed that The Clone Wars cancelled last year, I’d thought about how, all things considered, The Season 5 finale, “The Wrong Jedi”, was a very good series finale as well. Oh, don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of unanswered questions — mainly involving Rex and Darth Maul — but considering Ahsoka’s importance to the series and the huge question of why she wasn’t in Revenge of the Sith, the fact that we got resolution on that front was something I was quite grateful for.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "DESTINY" REVIEW

The Yoda storyline that ended The Clone Wars went to a very spiritual and even more out there place in this installment -- the shows's penultimate episode -- as Yoda traveled to an unnamed world that essentially was the birthplace of the Force, or at least “what your science calls midi-chlorians”, and Yoda met five Priestesses who told him about the ability to retain your identity after death.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "VOICES" REVIEW

I mentioned in my review of “The Lost One” that they basically abandoned the Sifo-Dyas plot line in the final three episodes, and I should clarify that yes, “Voices” does have the narrator mention him at the start - but it’s not really a notable part of what follows. Of course, this episode does deal in more general terms with the overall unease the Jedi are in as we near the end of the Clone Wars. The prequels mentioned that their ability to access the Force was diminished and that the cloud of the Dark Side was growing, and this episode illustrates that and the idea of these very powerful beings feelings out of sorts.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "THE LOST ONE" REVIEW

"The Lost One" was a really strong episode of The Clone Wars whose big downside was that so much was packed in, it could have used more time, with at least one more episode to flesh the story out; especially given what the Jedi discovered by the end. Attack of the Clones introduced some intriguing elements to Star Wars that the films themselves never wrapped up and the name “Sifo-Dyas” was chief among them. Who was this Jedi who we were told ordered the clone army? Was it really him or someone using his identity and if it was him, why? “The Lost One” finally tackled this story, as the discovery of Sifo-Dyas’ ship and lightsaber leads the Jedi to investigate how he actually died and his involvement in the Clone Trooper project.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "THE DISAPPEARED (PART 2)" REVIEW

The second half of the Mace Windu/Jar Jar two-parter wasn’t the unexpected treat the first half was, though it had its moments. I do wish Mother Talzin’s involvement had been kept a secret and she hadn’t been seen fighting Mace in the trailer. Though I suppose I likely would have guessed who “The Great Mother” was - so maybe a less specific name could have been used? Regardless, it was cool to see Talzin return in this manner, away from any of the characters we’d seen her interact with in the past - and just the visual of her taking on Mace Windu, with that sword she conjured, was awesome, though the fight itself was sadly short.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "THE DISAPPEARED (PART 1)" REVIEW

So yeah, with only 13 episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars left, would I have chosen to see a two-parter where Jar Jar Binks has a starring role? Of course not. Like many Star Wars fans, I would have been just fine never seeing Jar Jar on this series. But look, Dave Filoni and his team were telling the stories George Lucas wanted to see here, and that gave us a whole lot of awesome. And occasionally it gave us, sigh... Jar Jar.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "CRISIS AT THE HEART" REVIEW

Is there anything more formidable and terrifying than the threat of raising the interest rate on a bank loan? Truly, the Sith are diabolical! Yes, here on Earth, interest rates on bank loans is an important issue in people’s lives. But this is Star Wars. And poor Count Dooku being saddled with giving Clovis the order to  increase the interest rates on the Republic’s loans  just doesn’t have the same ring as “Execute Order 66,” does it?

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "THE RISE OF CLOVIS" REVIEW

There was more talk of secret bank accounts, unpaid bank loans and more bankitty bank bank talk in “The Rise of Clovis,” but it also stood out for being a pretty intense and meaningful episode when it came to Anakin and Padme and their very doomed marriage. Anakin is sitting on a lot of anger, to say the least, and Clovis’ presence in Padme’s life again was a bit of a ticking powder keg - made worse when Palpatine (just coincidentally , of course) suggested Padme and Clovis “work closely” together. He might logically know she’s only speaking to him for the greater good, but Anakin is unable to really get their emotionally and looks like he’s ready snap at any moment… Read More... //www.ign.com/articles/2014/03/21/star-wars-the-clone-wars-the-rise-of-clovis-review

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - "AN OLD FRIEND" REVIEW

This story arc was a notable one from a production standpoint, since it was actually originally produced for Season 5, before the decision was made to hold it for Season 6. In fact, I remember  seeing footage from it at Star Wars Celebration VI  back in the summer of 2012. The one big tipoff to this comes from the voice cast, as the late, great Ian Abercrombie still voices Palpatine here, not Tim Curry, who took over the role after Abercrombie’s death.
