Pity poor Clone Wars, finishing its first season on the same night as Battlestar Galactica... It was pretty much doomed to be overshadowed, even though last night was the best episode of the season altogether.
Ah, the schizophrenic nature of The Clone Wars. Last week, we learned that war was awesome and pacifists are idiots, and this week, it's all about the destructive paranoid nature of war. Conflicted much?
This week on George Lucas Wants You To Learn That Fighting Is Awesome, war comes to Space Brigadoon, and Raccoon Ewoks discover that pacifism is for losers. Socially responsible television the way you like it!
Two thoughts occurred to me during last night's episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Firstly, the series should never, ever, try to make any philosophical points. And secondly, that French Jedi is kinda cute.
You know that there's something wrong with last night's Clone Wars episode when the thing I spent most time thinking about while watching it was that Jar-Jar sounded different than usual. Another misfire awaits.
