Well, after Episode 3, I'm still enjoying this. And I really liked the "it's much easier when they don't shoot back, but I still can't hit anything" line from the droids.

I did not watch the previous clone wars, never liked the samurai jack style and it seemed a bit....simple.

I did not watch the film and the first episode was not great but episode 2 and 3 were pretty good, certainly the space battles are well done. Plo Koon seems an interesting character. It does have that original Star Wars feel to it. Aimed at children or not, I see no reason why they can't weave in complex and compelling plots. It appears to be have direction rather than many typical cartoon stand alone episodes so things are looking up. It is nice when you don't set your hopes high and then you are pleasantly suprised.

I liked it when the droid said "I have a bad feeling about this".

The first 2 episodes are good but i really loved episode 3

i was in mode watching the Y-Wings and how they looked before the Rebellion got their hands on them and stripped them of the outer armour plating in later years

Suprisingly enjoyable. I've watched the first 3 so far with part 4 later today. Very similar to the recent movie.
Good to see in part 2 that General Grevious didn't hold back when taking out the enemy, no matter what condition they were in. Nice change from the heroes getting everything going 100% their way.

Episode four was a nice end to the mini-arc, but did anyone else think episode five looks like it's going to be booooring.

Episode 4 was good too. Animated Anakin is far less annoying. Good to see some R2/C3PO hijinks too.

Just caught up with episode 5 - and I'm liking this more and more each week. Especially loved the "and that's why we don't go outside" moment and that thy've finally managed to make the battle droids nastier with the commandos...

Really Liking the new Ep's. I like the humour that the Droids have and the funny comments they make along the way. EP5 was great.

I finally watched the movie and caught up on the first five episodes and I have to say I really am enjoying it all. I thought the movie was quite mediocre but the story telling in the series is top notch.

I liked the movie, but now that we are 5 episodes into the series you can see that it'd probably work better split back up again into it's constituate episodes.

Now up to Ep 7 and I'm enjoying this more with every passing week. it just feels more like Star Wars than any of the prequels did, and I'm sure that's down to a little less interference from the bearded one.

Easily one of my favourite shows this season, and it's a shame it's not getting a bigger push over here (and even a bigger shame that they made the catastrophic error of releasing it in the cinemas). Will it eventually air on Sky One?

Indeed and a surprisingly nasty
bit too. Certainly surprising for something on the Cartoon Network.

I thought that too.

It's an absolute disgrace that Sky are showing this on a movie channel.

Everytime the episodes start with the newsreel like bit I keep thinking of Starship Troopers. I'm waiting for the "Do you want to know more?" caption to pop up.

Alas, from the title ("Bombad Jedi"), I fear this week's will include Gungans...
