Just wrapped up watching the first season.

The second half becomes pretty good. Solid ongoing story, good action, getting away from the adventure of the week, blah blah blah.

Nice final episode of the season with a few good (if predictable) reveals.

On the one hand, I was going to tell you that you suck for not doing some sort of spoiler warning.

Then I realized I was getting worked up over a Star Wars cartoon. We can both be wrong, I guess.

Considering that Vader was featured in the season finale earlier this year, I don't see how that's a spoiler.

Vader was also in the extended version of the first episode.


What do I win?

You're all right, hearing James Earl Jones reprising his role as Vader in a cartoon is in no way a surprise.

Except that it wasn't a surprise, because Monty ruined it, you see. So is it really sarcasm?

Yeah, well, I could care less. Irregardless, towards the end I was bored with the show.

See, those two don't bother me. The latter, in fact, is fine. People who get bent about it are stupid, especially if they make the ridiculous claim that it's not a word.

It IS a word. It's been found in print for at least 200 years. It's best not to use it formally, it's not seen as correct, but everyone knows what you mean when you say it. And that's how language works. Something that starts as one thing becomes another. As long as it's understood, that's all that matters.

It's a goddamn word, dammit.

Started watching Clone Wars on Netflix recently...it's good. Mighty good. Like Avatar: The Last Airbender, the first season starts off awfully "kiddie" (I quickly grew weary of those annoying, duck-headed "Roger-Roger" droids), but by the halfway point, the characters start to click and the writing grows more focused and mature. I was surprised and kind of delighted watching a season two ep tonight that was a total, scene-for-scene riff on Hitchcock's Notorious...the last thing I was expecting in a kid's cartoon. Anyways, I'm glad I gave this a shot, and I'm certain it will enrich my experience watching Rebels when it comes back this fall.

I can't believe you waited this long. Somewhere around season 3, you'll realize it was never a kiddie show. So. Much. Death.

Hey, I finally made it through season 1. I nearly gave up, because I'm not a fan of episodic G.I. Joe garbage (nobody dies, every episode ends with everyone laughing, Ezra learns his lesson of the week).

And then Tarkin showed up, and the show started working. There's still a lot that needs fixing (hint: kill Ezra). Hey, and my favourite Star Wars character showed up in the last episode, so now I have to go find season 2.

I binged season 2, so I'm all caught up. So much better than season 1, but it still has this awful need to throw moral lessons into every other episode. At least the jokes are better.

So, I was of course 100% correct in that you completely and totally loved that first episode of season 2, yes? Yes, of course.

Watching Vader do his awesome pilot kick-assery was fucking beautiful.

Vadar sounds like a cleaning agent. Anway, yes, that episode was excellent, although the very ending was a bit peculiar - specifically when he's chatting with Sheev, and he keeps referring to himself in the third person...

Actually, Transvestite radar, but that's another . . . conversation.

Yeah, made up for the last 10 or so garbage episodes. The series needs a lot more of this.

Season 3 is off to a really good start. Also, Tom Baker's voice made my nipples hard.

I thought it was Terence Stamp. All British voice overs sound the same to me apparently.

I'm trying to pirate the second season and for some reason it's a pain in the ass. Easy to find torrents of the first and third seasons, but every season 2 torrent is a scam. I'm getting the individual episodes from PB, but a few comments say they are mis-numbered, so if that's accurate it'll suck sorting them out.

For some reason, I'm suddenly eager to catch up on this show.

Side note: The blu-ray for Force Awakens is still too much money. I resorted to buying a UK import, because $25ish is too damn much.

I FINALLY upgraded my OT/PT DVDs to blu this weekend with the "complete" set.
