I got the R1 DVD last week and watched the first lot. Not bad for a cartoon but I can imagine it was torture in 3 minute segments. This series should be more interesting as it leads directly into Episode III.

Balls I missed it ..

I think they are all repeated at the weekend, not sure but that was how they did last season, an episode each day then repeats on the weekend.

I was surprised to see they showed two episodes today, I wonder what we will get tomorrow, as I believe there are only five episodes this season (12 minutes each), and that it would be one per day this week.

Anyway, two great episodes, General Grevious is extremely cool, can't wait to see him in action on the big screen.

Also good to see
This season will certainly build up nicely to ROTS.

I think the episode shown tomorrow at 8am is going to be a repeat of chapter 21. At least that was the impression I got from this story. Although after they showed chapters 21 and 22 today, who knows?

Thought it was great...

It actually seems important the way it's all feeding directly into EP3. I think it's a must see for anyone getting excited about EP3.

You can actually see


Can we spoiler this thread please? Otherwise there is going to be a lot of posts with black boxes as we discuss this series.

This morning's episode was a repeat of chapter 22 with 23 to follow tonight so that looks like the pattern Toonami will be following for this. Personally, I'm watching them on StarWars.com each night. They're going to be available on the CartoonNetwork website too.

Based on the first of the new episodes, the extended format is much more my cup of tea, allowing more room for dialogue scenes and story progression. My favourite bits were...



Since I've been starved of all the excitement for the new film, this is certainly getting me in the mood for ROTS.

Bloody Sky+ cancelled my recording of chapter 21. Great chapter 22 though, it cetainly fits better into the longer timeslot.

There doesn't seem to be an episode scheduled on Friday at all, but on Saturday there's an hour long Clone Wars at 10am - all 5 episodes?

There are five 12-minute episodes this time around. One each day this week.

Today they showed 22 and 23 back to back at 8am.

Looks like they are showing four episodes this week with a repeat of all 4 at 10am Saturday and Sunday.

I believe the last episode, 25 is half an hour in length and will be shown next week.

Could be wrong on this, its just a guess based upon timeslots on the schedules.

I think it is 5 x 12 minute episodes (numbered 21 to 25).

Monday they showed 21 & 22, Today 22 & 23.

So I'm guessing Wednesday will be 23 & 24, and Thursday 24 & 25.

Toonami like to keep things complicated don't they? Maybe if I was a hyperactive ADD suffering 10 year old it would make perfect sense.

I'm sticking with the official site I think, much simpler.

No schedules on the the Toonami website either which does not help!

Wow! How good was episode 23!

A very cool appearance by General Grievous who is obviously about to
which I believe will be explained in the opening crawl of ROTS.

Are they going to be releasing the episodes outside of Hyperspace at some point? I remember having the first series as hi-rez QT .movs at some point, but I can't remember where they came from

They are freely available on Cartoon Network's site, but I seem to remember that last time, they had some kind of block in place to prevent people from outside the US downloading.

Luckily for me, NTL have put Toonami on free everytime that Clone Wars has been on, I don't normally get it.
