Sorry, but this have to be the worst story arc in all the seasons. imo Not enjoying it at all.

I can't wait to start a new arc.

I'm watching the latest episode right now, pretty disappointed to see it's another one involving the droids and the colonel/general fellow, whatever he is. I was hoping the New Year would bring us back to the good stuff, alas. I skipped ahead with the intention of skipping the whole episode, but noticed the new Clone character who looks interesting so I'll watch, or half pay attention anyway.

I hope this episode marks the end of this story arc, it's been a real pile of stink. Even the political and Jar Jar focused episodes have at least been somewhat interesting. These last few episodes honestly seem like the regular writers took a break and let someone else fill in for some reason.

While I did enjoy "A Sunny Day in the Void", yeah, this arc was definitely the weakest of this season.

This Week's Episode...

We're still following the stupid colonel and the GOD DAMN DROIDS?!

5 Episodes of this crap now! Holy hell. Gimmie Jar Jar or politics or...I don't know...a romance episode between Anakin and Padme! Anything but these stupid characters for nearly a quarter of the season. Geeeez.

I'm sure plenty of people could write this ranting off as Nerd Rage, but you have to appreciate that I honestly believe it's one of the best, well written and entertaining shows on TV. Compared to it's usual standard this last arc has been a huge nosedive in it's quality.

So anyway, I skipped forward until I saw some Jedi show up about 15 minutes into the 22 minutes of the episode. The last 5 minutes or so were pretty good, it really seemed like they finally wrapped up the business with WAC and the colonel and R2 got to kick some butt.

Here's to next week being a return to the good stuff.

4 episodes, actually. Though considering how long it's been stretched out, I can't really blame you for thinking it's been longer.

And yes, that is Nerd Rage. Not that it's unjustified Nerd Rage.

Fortunately, next week's episode is the "Mauldalore" arc which I expect will be awesome.

Wow, you're right -it has only been four episodes. Sure as hell felt like five. Still, four episodes too many in my opinion.

So glad it's over

It seemed like they only needed 2 episodes to tell this story,but insisted on dragging it out for longer.The most interesting part was when they found the amnesiac clone trooper,but he was ultimately an incidental footnote.I was hoping they would actually do something with him.

This current season is by far the weakest. Mainly the four part droid episode...too much comedy.

Every season seems to do this though, give strong opener and decent few first episodes, then the middle of the seasons have been decent to terrible, then we got fantastic episodes rounding out the last half of the season.

It's never, ever been this bad. The worst we ever had prior to this crap (in my opinion) were the politic-heavy episodes. Even the Jar Jar episodes were basically alright, depending on your tolerance for Jar Jar. This last arc could have been wrapped up in a single episode, two at the most.

On a bright note, according to the Facebook update it appears this weeks episode will return us to the story of Maul and Savage. Should be exciting, I think they've done a great job making the two characters out be full-blown monsters. Even the Jedi are apprehensive to take them on.

Actually I'll agree, the droid episodes have bored me to tears. First episodes in a long time I couldn't sit through all the way, except the Gregor episode.

Also, really happy we are getting Maul and Death Watch. sounds like a great episode coming up. I can't wait for the Sidious confrontation. Really hoping we don't lose Maul. I don't want him to be a hanging plot thread or anything, and I'm not pushing for him in the sequel trilogy or anything, but Maul finally has character, and while I guess I don't care too much if Savage goes, I want Maul to stick around for a while.

I'm really enjoying Maul's character too. We were supposed to believe he was a bad ass in Episode One because... we were basically told he was. They're doing a great job of putting some actual credit to his fearful reputation. I enjoy the aristocratic way he speaks, and the quick domineering of Savage was great.

ericadawn, which episodes are you referring to specifically? I'm trying to recall but nothings leaping out at me. Do you mean the ones that followed Ahsoka?

At least the last episode had some kind of stakes (Anakin and Obi). But I'm so glad this s**t is over.

I think the droid arc could have worked just with the 1st and last episode. While that means no Gregor (sidenote with the actual episode--which upset me, he was totally wasted). .

and I'll agree with TheDreamMaster, the seasons start off strong, as we get to the middle it drags (I still remember Season 3--IIRC, we got The Adventures of Padme and the Politicians for a while before we got The Nightsisters and Savage)---back on topic to the middle-get some filler, some important stuff, but always finish on a strong note...

13 so far. I'd suggest catching up with the first 9, then skipping the entire Droid arc and starting fresh with this upcoming Saturdays episode. You won't miss anything by skipping the Droid arc (episodes 10-13).

Cool, thanks man. I can't believe I've missed so much. It was much easier watching them when they came on Friday nights.

If you ask me, the only episode worth watching was the season opener. You can skip episodes 2-12 since they're just filler episodes.

Now THAT'S the Clone Wars I have been waiting for!!! Maul! ("that Sith pretender Dooku"...awesome!) Death Watch! Jabba! My boy Embo! The only thing missing was Cad Bane! I honestly don't remember the last time I enjoyed a Clone Wars episode this much...the writing, the voice acting, the animation...everything was outstanding. Great job by Dave and his entire crew!

I wouldn't say four episodes too many. But the D-Squad arc would have worked as a one-shot episode as opposed to a four episode arc. It's a fun concept, but it dragged on way too long to the point where you were begging for it to be over.
