Anyone watching Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars? I’m a big fan of anything Star Wars, and I could really give a crap about people talking down on the episodes I-III. Sure, they didn’t fit into the canon the way everyone wanted it to, but they were entertaining movies on their own, even if some of it didn’t make a lot of sense.
Back when those movies first came out, Cartoon Network put on a series called The Clone Wars, and I never got to see it. Then when I went looking for it later on, it disappeared from the shelves like it never existed. Regardless, now they have the newest series, with an interesting take on the Star Wars universe.
For the uninitiated, the show takes place between Episode II and Episode III, before Anakin turned evil and all that. Anakin is given his own padawan – Ahsoka Tano – who initially played the “annoying kid” role pretty well. Now though, she’s becoming a well fleshed out character and is less annoying and more kickass.
The preview above is about the season finale for Season 2, and has to do with Boba Fett. Remember, in Episode II, Boba watched his dad get decapitated. Now he wants revenge, and he’s teamed up with some adults to get it done. This episode looks like another good one in a season of excellent shows, and should be a good way to end the year.
If you’re a fan of Star Wars, give the series a shot. There’s some solid action and a good storyline as well, plus new characters that make things more exciting. It’s on Friday nights on Cartoon Network.
