  The Phantom Menace: The best lightsaber duel in all of Star Wars between Darth Maul, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. And speaking of Qui-Gon, another redeeming factor for this movie, since he is like the best Jedi in all of Star Wars....

  A New Hope: This is the most influential film of at least one generation, and it still holds up as an amazing movie or home viewing experience.

  Children of the Force: Watching the Jedi use methods that are unethical and against their Order truly shows use how powerful the dark side of the force is. The Jedi Order was giving into their fear.

This episode makes me wonder if the Force itself was driving the Jedi Order to destruction because they were slowly sinking into the darkness themselves.

  Obi-Wan & Anakin #5: This arc was kind of pointless. It was cool to see Palpatine trying to show Anakin the seedier side of things, and I would have loved an entire arc of that. Also, Anakin's reasons for staying with Jedi order are a bit nebulous. Though to be fair so were his reasons for quitting. I was just hoping for more out of this.

  Knights of the Old Republic #35: A 35 issue story arc (plus one connected short story). So epic and so well told. Great side characters, and the ending was on point. I really enjoyed this story line.

  Duchess of Mandalore: Wow, that was fantastic! It had me in suspense from beginning to end.

I find it difficult to reconcile to the Duchess' character with that of the Mandalorians that we all know, but they are truly represented by Deathwatch. You can see that she is going against the grain and that Mandalore's pacifism will likely only last as long as her administration. Anyway, great character design; quite good-looking.

Also, man, Palpatine is such a slime-bag!

  The Wrong Jedi: Brilliant. I think Ahsoka showed a lot of character by leaving the Order because of her emotions whereas Anakin deceitfully stayed in the Order despite his emotions. I guess Ahsoka was first betrayed and then left. Anyway, it's interesting to see Anakin's training influence Ahsoka's personality, but then also see how she is different to him.

  Revenge: It's incredible that I like this episode so much when I am about to list off things that I did not like:
-Deus Ex Talzin making Maul sane again (I don't mind her giving him better legs)
-Chatty Maul - he doesn't speak much in Episode I so it would be nice if he remained the mysterious dark figure.
-Always dislike whenever there is an opening on a space ship that the physics are like an open window on a highway.

The team-up of Obi-Wan (witty remarks and all) and Ventress (witty remarks and all) makes up for these detractors. When would you ever see Obi-Wan using a red light saber? The fighting choreography is fresh and exciting and it truly keeps me at the edge of my seat. I know that Maul's lust for Obi-Wan extends into Rebels so it is monumental to see it begin here in Clone Wars.

Overall, Season Four is very good. A few stinkers don't bring down the amazing arcs that featured Krell, Obi-Wan as Hardeen, and Ventress becoming a bounty hunter. These past two episodes featuring Savage and Maul can be put into the very good category. On to Season Five!

4/5

  A Necessary Bond: Another satisfying conclusion to a 4-part arc. Although I didn't like any of the younglings (except maybe Gungi and Byph) at an individual level, I did like seeing the development of the group.

David Tennant's return as Huyang is also a positive for this episode. He has a couple of humorous interactions with Artoo that I particularly enjoyed.

The music at the beginning sounded better than usual. The use of the Force theme is also noticed and appreciated.

The Slave I lives on! I hope some type of story addresses how Boba gets his hands back on his ship.

This one gets an extra star for Ahsoka holding her own against Grievous. This is an enemy that gives Jedi like Obi-Wan and Anakin trouble and she was able to fight to a standstill and get away. As a character created specifically for this series, it has been a joy to see her develop. Snips is becoming a force to be reckoned with!

4/5

  The Wrong Jedi: This arc kept getting better and better with each episode and this one might be the best of the season. We say goodbye to the Cartoon Network run of the series with a very powerful story of betrayal. I suspected Barriss from the second episode of the arc, but I didn't think she was acting alone like this. Her motivation wasn't that she wanted to turn to the Dark side, but rather she identifies the direction the Jedi Order is going in. The political angle of her actions resonates with how we know this all turns out in Episode III.

Pretty colors! - This episode marks the debut of the yellow blades of the Jedi Temple Guard. I've never seen these before, so this is really cool. We also see Tera Sinube's white blade from his cane. And who would have thought Barriss Offee would be the one to wield red?

My only gripe with the story is the speed of the court hearings. Ahsoka is put on trial very quickly and she has very little time to put together a defense. Anakin is proving her innocence while she is in the tribunal. This adds to the drama and spectacle of it all, but it doesn't make much sense in a civilized society like on Coruscant.

Like other commentators above, I also think the ending of this is very emotional. We have spent five seasons with Ahsoka and she has developed from a little over-confident brat into an independent and very capable character. When the Jedi and Senate are betraying her by coming to quick conclusions in these court hearings, its like they are betraying the viewers due to the connection we have with Ahsoka. Her denial of the Jedi Order is so powerful and makes a lot of sense. The beautiful music that features the cello only adds to the weight of this sequence. I am so glad the music continued into the credits and it didn't revert to the main bombastic theme.

4/5

  Thrawn: I liked Eli as well, and the ending for him was really good... I'm excited to read the Sequel that has been announced...

I was a huge fan of the original Zahn trilogy, and I love how he was able to keep the character of Thrawn intact, but yet still adjust him to fit the new canon as well...

I also really liked Arihnda Pryce in this, and how much we background and development we got for her character...

  The Phantom Menace: Can't agree more. It's what keeps this movie from being 2 stars for me. Between the poor pacing and Jar Jar, this was a bit of a train wreck right until the start of the end light-saber battle. Adds a whole star by itself.

  Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan: The Aurorient Express #2: I enjoyed this, overall, but felt the "Earth-stuff-but-in-space" things like "the Aurorient Express" weakened how seriously I could take it. Fun, though, and funny.

  Knights of the Old Republic #35: I totally agree with all your points... nothing felt rushed through any of this, and it all felt natural with such a great flow going on..... I might have little bickers here or there on individual issues, but overall this was a pretty awesome read.... highly recommend to anyone interested in this era....

  Star Wars (1998) #1: It's not a bad comic per se, but I can't get over how horrible it is to sell a comic called just STAR WARS, with this awful, miserable disaster of a cover, six months before Phantom Menace comes out. Just horrible.

  The Gungan General: wait, this makes no sense.... in the last episode, at the end they knew the stuff they were given was drugged and you see them switch it out with the two pirates next to them, who then pass out.... but in the "last time" for this episode they only show them holding the drugged drinks and then open on them having been drugged....

  Jedi Crash: also I really liked this episode... Aayla isn't used that often, and it really fleshes out the bond between Ahsoka and Anakin that they aren't supposed to have, even though Jedi practice a paradigm of Master and Apprentice... In fact I love how the overall atmosphere of the War brings things like this into question with the Jedi concept....

  Lords of the Sith: I really loved this... Up until this point, it's all been an orchestrated story, that at many times, we knew the outcome... but something we haven't really gotten from all of this at any time is any type of personal story about Sidious and Vader, as the Lords of the Universe.... something that really focuses on their relationship after the Clone Wars....

this book is exactly that... and it's really good.....

  The Gungan General: I think that the pirates knew all about their Jedi tricks so they also placed drugs in the cups of the pirates next to them. Talk about no honor among thieves.

It also could have just been a mistake because the recap shows them drinking but never switching cups.

Or that pirate grog is just that potent.
