Embo was another truely good chracter...like Cad Bane (the only other interesting chracter this series has added. Hes a new species, which is meh in theory, but hes well designed, sweet voice, and hes in general fun to watch. Sugi was also an interesting new character (though a bit flat) and I like Serapis' character and the whole catch with that (though it was dumb that his suit exploded so quickly).
This episode also saw the return of Hondo, who know has a new little monkey lizard (where did the old one go). Hondo was fairly uneventful except for at the end when the artfull designed, retro Weequay saucer comes spinning overhead.
Sugi's Line: "Says the peacekeeper who fails to keep the peace." Its nice to see the series continue to hammer home the point that the oblivious Jedi are the only ones that think they are infallible. This is really the only dark/intriguing tone this show has ever put forward.
This series must be short on budget. We are back yet again on Felucia (though thankfully its not as omnipresent as Coruscant) and YET AGAIN with our terrrible skywalker trio. I will once again b!tch about the cannonicity of this show. The Force Unleashed alreadty showed us a Felucia was. Why do we have more rancor knockoffs when rancors are already shown to live there? Why do we have another fopish alien race (with REALLY big pants) when Felucians already exist. I really hate that this show continuously conflicts with cannon form the franchises' other MAJOR works.
Also it seemed very un-Kenobi to suddenly want to abandon the planet and Ashoka is the voice of compassion.
I thought it was a lame rip-off of the old Seven Samurai story, also done in The Magnificent Seven and A Bug's Life. And those were all kinda great. This IMHO was uninventive, uninspired and lame. HAve they run of out story ideas?
I did watch the remaining episodes before watching the second season (right before the Grievous 2nd season episode) it was a nice 3 nights marathon watching great episodes... which seems to have come to an end with the latest 5 episodes I missed.
btw: has the Boba Fett episode air yet?, cuz I have in my download queue
