Wow. This episode surprised me.,.in the opposite way than the last one did.
Did I mention the SPHA-T tanks last time? Thats a nice addition.
Green gas is pretty?
Broken record time: ANOTHER Anakin episode...ANOTHER Coruscant episode...blah blah blah. Most of last episode's criticisms carried over.
If this series wants to channel Gojira then CHANNEL it. They build up all these parallels but then COMPLETELY ignore Gojira's message. if you're going to pay homage to something, freaking understand what you are homaging. There was no point.
There was so much in this episode that was just pointless. The Dr. Lady is gassing a creature, but doest have an enclosed box? Padme's introduction was TOTALLY random. The only thing more random than that was Anakin and Aayla runing up and down the Zilo beasts back waving their lightsabers. I mean....what was the point to that!
There is still other annoying things like Padme magically accelerating down a roof ledge before magically grabbing on to a non-existant ledge and stopping herself from falling off with her little skinny arms. There's also 3PO somewhow learning to sprint for the first time in 33 years.
This episode was really just a comedy of errors. Brining the beast to Coruscant was a dumb idea (seriously, MACE is now the leading voice of prescience?). Its escape was predictable. The show made it out to be like some sort of secret Palpatinian plan, but the point of the plan was never revealed.
The whole Zilo-beast-out-to-get-Palps is weird too. It may have a hit job on him, but Anakin and Mace and the doctor also caused it significant harm, more than Palpy ever did directly.
I havent seen cloverfield. Filoni said that he was directly channeling Gojira, to the point of naming one of the clone Goji and putting an icon of the oxgen destroyer on the tactical droid's bosom....so thats how I critiqued it.
